I think this is a great idea. You'd think with a distro as popular as Ubuntu someone would have started a forum already, get it started quick before someone steals the idea!

The last time I looked, 4,500 was over a 1,000 - but it's still not far enough :(

As you do get some doing dual boot, is there a problem in having a 'Other OS' section? If not, why change?

So true Nelz... That's why I proposed to send it on a one-way trip to the sun. Didn't say it had to be ours ;) According to Roger Leloup there's a galaxy some 6 billion lightyears from here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yoko_Tsuno and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vinean :)

It's not very far between Warrington and Wigan, poor you must be able to catch a nasty whiff when the wind's in the wrong direction :P

You know, that is a comforting thought. 4500 miles from 1sf (troll).

Now for the rest of you, there's beer in the fridge, 24-hour wireless, and a semi-comfortable couch set aside for visitors.

1) you're not old enough to travel abroad, especially on your own...
2) presenting alcoholic drinks to minors is a serious offense in the US
3) add 1) + 2) and: no, you're not getting a beer...

But we'll set you up with another beer: click! (for those smarter then 1sf (troll): translate the Dutch word beer into English ;))

As I have mentioned innumerable times before, 1sf (troll) is actually one of these. As the following quote should make clear:

Hagfish are long, vermiform and can exude copious quantities of a sticky slime or mucus (from which the typical species Myxine glutinosa was named). When captured and held by the tail, they escape by secreting the fibrous slime, which turns into a thick and sticky gel when combined with water, and then cleaning off by tying themselves in an overhand knot which works its way from the head to the tail of the animal, scraping off the slime as it goes. Some authorities conjecture that this singular behavior may assist them in extricating themselves from the jaws of predatory fish. However, the "sliming" also seems to act as a distraction to predators, and free-swimming hagfish are seen to "slime" when agitated and will later clear the mucus off by way of the same travelling-knot behavior.

On second thought, your definition describes 1sf (troll) better Rhakios :D

the most "disgusting" of all sea creatures


If this is indeed a description of 1sf (troll), it has a superfluous word.
