I love xkcd and its geeky geeky ways.Â It often captures things I’ve lived and/or seen.Â Today’s is one I have lived and seen lived.
This reminds me of a post on usenet my friend Anne made in 1998.Â To quote:
So I am left not bitter just tired of this whole meeting people, emotional ties, finding a compatible person and then having them yank away.
It is just an emptiness right now.
From what I have observed from my male friends, though, this is exactly the climate required to learn Linux. Without a full and happy lovelife or distraction of soft lips and a reason to kiss them, there is enough room to grasp the intricacies and nuances of such a fine operating system.
It has already begun to happen. As I walk down the street I am not thinking of emptiness, kising, nathan or any other previous SO’s, I am thinking of penguins, rm -rf / and lilo.
I am already convinved that linux will dull the pain better than heroin.
I still loves me some linux hardcore, though.
