Philadelphia, PA - In news that is sure to excite the Linux community, long time Linux developer Todd Stanton got laid.
Happy Todd"I still have trouble believing it myself," said Todd. "I was doing some coding when my power supply blew. Instead of pulling out the spare like I usually would, I decided to head down to Best Buy to check out the new DVD releases. Nothing new was out, so I bought another copy of ’The Matrix’ since the one I had was pretty worn out. Turns out the checkout girl was a Matrix fan too and well one thing led to another."
Word spread rapidly on message boards and on IRC. "It’s pretty irresponsible of him and shows his lack of dedication to Linux and the open source movement," said Fred Simpson. "If others try to emulate this behavior then a lot of projects could get derailed."
Others like Gary Wilcox were glad to hear the news, "We’re tired of all those Microsoft developers shoving their Win-Ho’s in our face. Now we can tell them about Todd. Who’s laughing now?" Related News
Some developers are also excited that this may increase their chances of getting lucky, but most are being realistic. Walker Crandall said, "We thought we’d all be doing the hokey-pokey after Bill Fitzsimmons got some during the LinuxWorld Conference in 1999. We were fooling ourselves. Nobody got nothing."
Had an accident, need a car I am fine, but the front end of my car is wrecked. It will cost more than the car is worth to fix, does anyone have, or know of someone who has an inexpensive car for sale in mass? I need it to get to and from work. Still shook up, gonna lay down. craig
New Years was eh, got lost on the way to a SASQUATCH and the SICK-A-BILLYS better than last years, when I was rang in the New Year whilst getting rocketed amd mortared while chatting with my former best friend. And, no, did not tell 'em what was going on, did not want to spoil her new year.
Am doing OK, not totaly readjusted to civilian life, do not get out as much as I would have liked, still have not gone to NYC as planned (no place to crash anymore, but still may do an overnighter. Not the first time I slept on the sidewalk waiting for the bus :-D ), need to overhaul my wardrobe. Have not fullfilled all my goals on coming back, but making progress. Still way too nice to people who try to take advantage of me. Trying to work on it without becoming an complete asshole. Will update more often. Cannot wait for Arisia, and a special friend coming to visit. :-D Craig
Gone to play Army Well, had a much longer post planned, but it looks like I am gonna go play Army down in North Carolina. I am also supposed to be out of the Army Oct 24th, and am not happy that the Army is not letting me go. At all. For another 6 years. Doing my best to get out of it of the exercise, if not, I will be back in 2 weeks. Oh, and I am gonna be offline the entire time, so I am sorry for completely dissapearing. Will have a much longer post when I get back, with much picture goodness. Have fun!
My only goal in life is to make people snarf. Snarfing is when you laugh when you have a mouth full of a drink, and do a spit-take. When you do it with beer, it is an "Irish Bukkake". Just call me "Killer-of-keyboards" That is all.
Heya! Yeah, I know it has been a long time since I wrote. When I am in a better mood, I will start telling stories again. I will be back in North Carolina very beginning of July, hopefully home mid-July. Really lookig forward to it. So glad to get out of Iraq. A combat tour is a great thing to have done, but not so fun doing it. Mostly positive experience, but recently it has been more negative. Very negative. Much has happened, some good, some bad, and I will try to start updating much more frequently. I am NOT re-enlisting, not going to get a Commision, I am done with the Army. Going to get a real job when I get back, start making money again, so I can have some FUN! (After a break of course) Start working on my MBA. Blah. Find some place to get a body piercing apprenticeship. Just for fun. Buy a classic (pre-1950's) car, rebuild it. Reconnect with old friends, connect with new, jettison the deadwood and the users. Big time house cleaning. Tell people how I feel. Don't like it, time to move on. Give ultimatums. Stop dwelling on the past. Try to figure out why, when people who have treated me like crap go thru a hard time, I still want to help them. (see above) Not nearly the same person I was when I left. Gonna be changes in my life.
