Lo all,

I've turned off commenting on news stories for now -- they're being overwhelmed with spambots. However, I'll look into captcha or a similar system so that hopefully we can re-enable them soon.

In the meantime, feel free to chat about current Linux events in the Discussion forum!

These are the LXF forums. Surely we should discuss such things on this thread? Twisted Evil

Now I'm confused. In which forum should we discuss the forum in which we should discuss news? Smile

Around 17C should be fine, if you can't go any hotter. But then again the wheelbarrow's broken. Sad

Well, it's clearly all to do with this web site, and temporary disability seems to have afflicted several of us in resolving this issue, so I rest my case.

Ouch!

Doh! Rested my case too near the edge of the table and it fell on my foot. Embarassed

For a minute I thought you were taking this seriously guy, then I noticed the toaster was fishing for jelly.

OK. Who's old enough to remember, here's who?

Sounds like Kenneth Horne to me... I don't think it's from "Round the Horne" - maybe "Beyond Our Ken ?"
