Me being un-PC and nerdy again. [Feb. 4th, 2008|12:04 pm]

Given the circles I've been in, I've gotten used to walking on eggshells when I need to, while crushing them with great abandon when nobody's looking; It's this whole minority thing - you know "the in-jokes are only funny on the inside", that sort of thing.

And then there are the hardcore techy/nerdy people... you know the "They can take our land, but they will not take our unix!" or "If you're using a windows IRC client, I just don't want you on my server". Things seem to get even more polarised in those minority circles for some reason. My theory is that there's some residual twitchiness brought into the technical arena, which may be compounded by the theory that the hardcore techy/nerdy of the kernel-hacker variety might be a bit autistic.

As a result, when people take to a distribution of linux or BSD they like, they defend it until the bitter end. Dare anybody criticise it, my advice is to duck for cry of "Never again the burning times!".

My advice is run, in case you're accused of: Distromination (Yes, you can hit me now).

Oh dear. I'm sure there are a a million light-bulb jokes that should be told now. But I do not know any. And if I did, I probably wouldn't get any of them either.

*thwack*
Well you said I could hit you...
