"Oh, The Humanity!"

Well, looks like the 'War Of The Goons' has died down, which is fine. It was swell, but the swelling has gone down. Couple notable footnotes to it, though:

-- discordian posted a rant about it in the linux community about how people like antisense make it even harder for Linux to gain the respect it deserves. And, as geeks are wont to do, the opinions on it ranged from 'Kick Ass' to 'Chill Out'.

-- My 'Linux=Chritianity' argument is spreading. nighthawk mentioned it in his journal, and shortly thereafter skreidle posted it in his own journal, and then re-posted it in the welovegeeks community. You both kick ass, and are defintely in my cool book! I am simultaneously surprised and not surprised by the fact that while some see the humour in it, there are some hardcore linux-types who are actually debating the validity of the comparison, or trying to clarify minor aspects of it. Christ on a bun with tartar sauce, kids...it's humour! Laugh occasionally, it helps...and make sure you laugh at yourself at LEAST half the time.

-- Lastly, I've become someone's hero, for the moment, anyway. *G*, antiscout, you are all right! Allow me to add you to my coterie, and welcome you to the the fight against rigidity! Dogma be damned!

Oh, and this is directed mostly to discordian, sylvaine2001, and priestofcards, I'm regaining my quasi-urban legend status. I almost feel like my old self again...
