Bastardo!!!

They won't let me join.


Do you have what it takes to unlock the secret portal to a brave new world free from F.U.D. Fedora Users and Developers (Fedora Linux).

I say to y'all, there is a sort of lack of enthusiasm for all new projects, which is not absolutely necessary for their affairs, to makes them proof against the most fatiguing delays, the most mortifying disappointments, the most shocking insults; and, what is severer than all, the presumptuous judgment of the ignorant upon their designs.


It is a general popular error to suppose the loudest complainers on this site to be the most anxious for its welfare. There is, however, a limit at which forbearance ceases to be a virtue.


We few, we happy few, we band of A2K'ers;
For those to-day that sheds their inhibitions with me
Shall be my sister/ brother; be they ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle their condition:
And posters now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That joined with me upon this day.

Apologies to the bard.

Please remember; All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good folk do nothing...

Do you have what it takes?

Apology not accepted!








Oh wait... were you asking for forgiveness from ANOTHER bard?! Whatever!! http://i52.tinypic.com/2n0vmsx.jpg

As for your group? I'm too much of a rebel to use Fedora Linux. I use the little known software company ... of course you never heard of them ... they call themselves Microsoft.

They use a groundbreaking OS ... I think I remember it being called Microsoft Wisto ... Wista... Xista... Xiste.... something along those lines. Your corporate slavishiness to your Linux dependency sickens me Tryagain!

Do cut me sum slack DjjD, all you Canadians look the same to me, so help me out; are you the guy that knows Bethie and her toy boy Set?
If so you rock and are a shoo-in for membership.


My dear Tsar, or in Russia we say Czar which is a title used to designate certain monarchs or supreme rulers. If on the other hand you are not in fact descended from European nobility but live under the asperses of Sigillum Civitatis Novi Eboraci; then Yo!

However, I must take you to task over your use of the word 'Absquatulate', although it is still to be found in modern American dictionaries, and indeed became a favourite bêtes noire of writers on style such as Walton Burgess, who wrote Five Hundred Mistakes of Daily Occurrence in Speaking Pronouncing and Writing the English Language, Corrected, a title that was sufficient in itself to make the strongest heart quail.

He in fact included the word in question in a list of those to be avoided, with this evocative example: “He has absquatulated, and taken the specie with him”. He remarked disdainfully that “ ‘absconded’ is a more classical word”.

May the good fairy besprinkle stardust on your bippy.


Ceili your visit bestows gravitas on this humble ensemble, just don't tell Chai deux.

@margo,
Oh Margo, thank heavens for your timely intervention, I could not sleep due to my mask of abstemiousness being torn asunder by the constant thumbing down of this poor excuse for a lampoon.

I have already placed a juju curse on those Republicans responsible and as soon as the symptoms begin to manifest, i.e. Sore throat, tiredness, itching etc, my thoughts will once again return to Zorro.

There is already a lively thread dedicated to this phenomenon, and I would love to debate with you whether the plural is phenomena or phenomenons.

However, for the time being and I do indeed believe they invented time to stop everything happening at once, please be careful as in unary and k-adic notation in general, zero is the empty string. Write 0.0 to indicate a floating point rather than the integer zero.

The zeros of a polynomial are its roots by the fundamental theorem of algebra. The derivative of a continuous, differentiable function that twice crosses the axis must have a zero. The nontrivial zeros of the Riemann zeta function may all lie on the critical line.

The zero sign in American Sign Language is considered rude in some cultures. Meet me at the billabong at eight bells.

Is there anyone else who wishes to be considered for the A>K equivalent of the Oscars?

Dearest Tai, I would not have the temerity to even countenance an invasion of your privacy when even imagining you behind a snow blower brings me out in goose bumps.

I hope you can forgive the ramblings of an old duffer; but enough about Gus. I feel guilty that you are toiling away on the Sabbath so if you see Jespah please inform her she can post any Play Dude promo shoot pictures on this private thread without fear of them being seen from other galaxies.

If there are any other members who aspire or desire A list status or have any suggestions on how this train crash thread may be resuscitated, please feel free to keep it to yourselves as I am fully occupied indexing my shoe lace collection.

If on the other hand you want to see a picture of a shy Missy on the beach wearing nothing but a radiant smile and a revealing Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini; then take a deep breath, step up to the plate and give it your best shot.....

Oh sweet Ceili please do be careful, I tried that once and fell off the faucet, it was only by a stroke of good fortune a tin bucket broke my fall. I would also be obliged if you would quit your runnin' as there is no way I can catch up. Heck , I can't get to the West wing without the aid of a limo.

Anyhoo, consider yourself part of the A Team; along with: George Peppard, Dwight Schultz, Mr. T, Dirk Benedict, djjd62, tsarstepan, margo, Tai Chi and Jes.

I think it was she who posted the Play Dude promo shoot pictures. Wow!
But because they won't let me in, I can't see them.
However, look what's HERE.

If you ever find yourself on Manhattan Island and want to look me up, don't waste your time, cause Hobo Station Mississippi is where I'll be at.
Still, it was good to hang out with you.

Sorry Francis, selection on a national basis must be in strict alphabetical order.
America / Australia / Alaska / Britain / Calgary / Dutchy / Europe / France!
It's ok, no need to thank me.


I'm not saying Wandel is itching more than usual, but if he recants by reciting, 'Evolution is an intelligent design' over and over until he believes it, he may just be saved.

Anyone else suffering from Proprioception?

In the absence of TR Yagain perhaps I could respond:

Margo from Key Largo, do you wish to exclude the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg?

After all it is the only grand duchy in existence today. It has been a grand duchy since 1815 when the Netherlands became an independent kingdom and Luxembourg was handed over to the King of the Netherlands, William I.
Luxembourg remained in personal union with the Netherlands crown until 1890 when William III, King of the Netherlands and Grand Duke of Luxembourg, died without leaving a male heir, so that in the Netherlands he was succeeded by a female. Although I doubt it was Christine Lovatt.


Greetings Ragnel, any Lovatts fan is most welcome, so consider yourself at the top table.

Ewe rote, "... so who am I...?"

If I remember correctly the Ragnel series consists of very deep, somewhat excessively drained soils that formed in alluvium derived from mixed rocks. Iffin' you are looking for some; may I direct your attention to:

Lincoln County, Nevada; approximately 15 miles northwest of Atlanta, 4,900 feet north and 1,500 feet west of the southeast corner of section 33, T. 9 N., R. 66 E.; USGS Gouge Eye Well 7.5 minute topographic quadrangle; latitude 38 degrees 36 minutes 10 seconds N and longitude 114 degrees 34 minutes 14 seconds W; NAD 83.

The following is taken from a publication called STRINE by Afferbeck Lauder.

Strine is full of words which were originally English.
'Aorta' is a typical example.

Aorta (pronounced A-orta) is the vessel through which courses the life-blood of Strine public opinion. Aorta is a composite but non-existant Authority which is held responsible for practically everything unpleasant in the Strine way of life; for the punishment of criminals; for the weather; for the Bomb and the Pill; for all public transport; and for all the manifold irritating trivia of everyday living.

Aorta comprises the Federal and State legislatures; local government councils; all public services; and even, it is now thought, Parents' and Citizens' Associations and the CSIRO.

Aorta is, in fact, the personification of the benevolently paternal welfare State to which all Strines - being fiercly independant and individualistic - appeal for help and comfort in moments of frustration and anguish.

The following are typical examples of such appeals. They reveal the innate reasonableness and sense of justice which all Strines possess to such a marked degree:

`Aorta build another arber bridge. An aorta stop half of these cars from cummer ninner the city - so a feller can get twirkon time.'

`Aorta mica laura genst all these prairlers and sleshers an pervs. Aorta puttem in jile an shootem.'

`Aorta have more buses. An aorta milkem smaller so they don't take up half the road. An aorta put more seats innem so you doan tefter stann all the time. An aorta have more room innem - you carn tardly move innem air so crairded. Aorta do something about it.'


Do you think these Groups are going to catch on?

Nothing to be sorry about, dear Try!

I bow before the enormous amount of intellectual brilliance displayed here
and be assured that I don't even envision to be part of the greatly deserving withinsigneds.

From my humble position, let me however congratulate this areopagus of fine minds, as soon I'll be close to the real place.

@Francis,
Hey! Isn't that the fantastic taverna at the bottom of the hill? I remember, years ago, getting wiped out on ouzo there with some guy I was introduced to. French, I think he was; but I can't quite bring his face to mind; it was half in shadow and the place was pretty dark. I had a great time!
