Here at LXF Towers we don't just pull out all the stops to give you the world's finest Linux publication. We send the stops to an industrial furnace and bury the ashes under the sea bed. As proof of our commitment to the world of free software, here's Art Editor Effy doing...
Wait, what is he doing? If you can figure out what's going on here with Mexico's finest export, or you have a cracking caption to go with the pic, post below. All will be revealed (probably) in Linux Format 130.
Meanwhile, and while I'm here, let me say something about computers used in films and TV shows. Why, in this day and age, do directors and/or prop makers insist on creating the most ridiculous, noisy, dodgy-looking devices possible?
Here's an example from a TV programme that was shown somewhere in the world yesterday.
Here, a nasty character is trying to break into a safe, and is using a computer program to do so. Now, we all know that in real life, such a program would be some boring shell script run in a terminal or a bland Win32 GUI app that looked harmless.
But no! This is TV, so the program needs to have ker-azy text scrolling down the screen with accompanying bleeps and buzzes. THAT'S JUST THE WAY THINGS ARE, RIGHT?
Fail. Incidentally, if anyone recognises that TV programme purely from the still (hint: it's not in English), I'll give you 30,000 bonus points and two free internets.
