Re: BunsenLabs quotes

And bunsen-fortune 9.1.2-1, incorporating recent additions, is now in GitHub and should be hitting the repos before long.
Please keep up the good work!

Re: BunsenLabs quotes

not sure what happened to brontosaurusrex, but i'm sure they're ok with adding this:

brontosaurusrex wrote:

I tend to do a short gnu philosophy session (showing pictures of Stallman and Torvalds) especially pointing out that this is a html5 presentation and not powerpoint. And the importance of free software. The questions are usually in the area of; Will it run photoshop faster?

to add some context, it starts with "how bronotsaurusrex introduces people to Linux:"

so, added and pushed (will take about 10min, I have some weird networking problem atm).

it would be better if people made proposals in this thread, instead of the place they found the potential quote. that would also show that they are serious about it and not just joking around.

So, I guess I'll be annoying everyone here from time to time.

Don't worry, the community is prepared to annoy you back by

  • showing screenshots and setups that look great on their desktops but for some weird reason not on your own;

  • showing how they use sofisticated software you never knew existed but now start wanting to learn to master;

  • expecting you to formulate your question in a clever way, when you really don't know what and why you are actually asking;

  • asking you to read tons of manuals and offering a multitude of solutions every time you ask a question you think is only short and simple;

  • derailing and shooting every thread you start in outer space.

In short, the community is so helpful that in times you almost can't stand it.

Also what people forget is that active politics requires enormous know-how about rules, documents, ways to navigate that mess, legal issues, various unknowns. Also a lot more time than one would think to make at least half-decent decisions (just to later realize that they were actually legally wrongly worded, or one is just over-voted). And if everything clicks perfectly the results are usually as tiny as if an ant would try to save the Titanic.
