More Linux monkeying. Honestly, Linux is pretty decent, but you should really get a grip on things. I mean, UF just isn't that funny unless you like a constant repetition of "Microsoft sucks" themed comics (which I'm sure some people do).

Still, there's nothing to discuss about this really. Nothing interesting....just mindless "oooooh....pretty link" stuff.

I can't even find "Linux" in this entire week's comics... and this (and this) applies to everyone, linux monkeys or not :-)

<panner> When making backups, take a lesson from rusty: it doesn't matter if you make them, only that you _think_ you made them.
