NB:translation: I Think I am gonna cry :_)

14:13 < moshe> could someone explain to me why, despite the fact that Mandrake configured all my hardware automatically and Slackware
didn't, why I'm enjoying running Slackware more?
14:13 < SporcusPorcus> moshe: lots and lots of weed for free
14:13 < moshe> nah
14:13 < HedgeMage> moshe: because Slackware is an addiction :)
14:13 < moshe> don't do weed
14:13 < SporcusPorcus> :-(
14:13 < moshe> according to the tv ads, weed gets girls pregnant.
14:13 < SporcusPorcus> he eh
14:13 < HedgeMage> moshe: roflmao
14:13 < SporcusPorcus> if its on tv it must be true he eh
14:14 <+phrag> moschi^afk: because you can apply your slackware learnt skills to any other linux distro, unlike most others
14:14 < StevenR> moshe: the feeling of satisfaction, knowing you did it. and the knowledge you run a stable, well maintained and
14:14 < HedgeMage> moshe: that can't be true, I've never used weed, but I have been pregnant :)
14:14 < moshe> well, my wife's been pregnant.
14:14 < moshe> we're still investigating if weed was involved.
14:14 < HedgeMage> moshe: maybe it had something to do with all the wild and kinky sex I was having???
14:14 < moshe> but right now it's not lookgin to be the case
14:14 < Dominian> moshe: weed involved in pregnancy. never
14:14 < Dominian> hehe
14:15 < moshe> when I saw the latest anti-weed ads on tv, I really thought they were admitting that all the stuff they taught me in high
school about weed being so dangerous to your health was BS
14:16 < moshe> anti-pot
14:16 <+phrag> moshe: heh, where do you live ?
NB: translation: Use Slackware It will get you pregnant. Males need not apply he eh :-)
is partitioning your HD that risky?
partitioning a hard drive is like cutting a pizza into slices
