Shock!

I'm amazed.

Are you really telling me that if i enter data into a machine,

that the machine then knows the data that I've entered into it!

What magic trickery is this?

It's almost as if it has a "memory"...

... as an experimental musican

..i quite like the idea, in fact, it's the sort of thing i've been waiting for...

sure, i'll have to pay money to make them, but i have to pay £1000s for the equipment i already use, this'll just be another one in my "toys to get" bag...

and yeah, it'll have a smaller market, but hey, i'm not EMI wanting some chart topper, i'm a musician, wanting to experiment with new media...

if you're a naye sayer simply because of the file size or it "not being anything better" - then you're probably not the audience i care about as a musician - i don't want people to listen to my music because it's convenient any more than going to an art gallery to see a modern art installation is "convenient" for the viewer... or listening to a live performance at the royal albert hall is convenient...

as a musican MP3s really annoy me, because they simply don't allow me this sort of control... but this sounds "fun"

so, caveat audiens :)

Dear NASA

Please see my previous enquiry relating to future procurement of your Space Shuttle fleet,

i am now requiring an answer with utmost urgency as i have a warehouse of black orchids which desperately need transporting to my off-site facility.

yours,

Hugo Drax.

p.s. In response to your other enquiry from your agent:

No, I expect you to die, Mr Bond

distro-22

"Sure there's a distro," Doc Torvalds replied. "Distro-22. the only good open and dynamic o/s is a constrained and restricted one"

There was only one distro and that was Distro-22, which specified that a concern for one's safety in the face of dangers that were real and immediate was the process of a rational mind. Shuttleworth was crazy and so he can't make a new release. All he had to do was ask; and as soon as he did, he would no longer be crazy and would have to make another LTS. Shuttleworth would be crazy to release another LTS and sane if he didn't, but if he was sane he had to release them. If he released them he was crazy and didn't have to; but if he didn't want to he was sane and had to. Userrian was moved very deeply by the absolute simplicity of this clause of Distro-22 and let out a respectful whistle.

"That's some distro that Distro-22," he observed.

"It's the best there is," Doc Torvalds agreed.
