The quest you seek is difficult at first, adraker .. I remember w.h.e.n.........
( sounds of time drifting back to an earlier day, many moons ago.. )
Many thought I was just "toying" around with a new distro.
...." that linux thing he does " ....
time spent laughing at others reinstalling their os's, or fighting yet
another round of biff, crud, and bugs.. and more reinstalls...and updates....
( Hey, what'cha doin? ) I say.. with a rather large grin on my face..
He knew that I knew WHAT he was doing, but you GOTTA rub it in sometimes?
(grr.. downloading my video drivers again .. I wanna play RTCW,
but I had to reinstall my windows, and all my software, cause my HD crashed. ) he says..
... it's not his fault, ....really....
... Besides, I appreciated receiving his old 'perfectly working' hard drive...
( Here, boot this... ) I hand over a DVD-R
( What is it? ) he asks?
( RTCW, UT, Q3, and a few others ) ....I smile.
( But I haven't installed my Drivers yet?) he mumbles.
( after your download, boot it ) .. I said ..
( boot it?) he appears puzzled, like deer caught in front of headlights.
( yes, boot it up.. ) I smile, and exit...
....more time passes....
( Linux? I need Windows!..) is heard defiantly...
... computer boots up into beautiful X , with icons ...
....more time passes.... sound of gunfire, mayhem..
I return, only to find a drooling , jonesing game fiend getting his 'fix'..
( Hey , what'cha doin? ) I say, again..
( WoW! ..) ..is the only word spoken, amidst more gunfire.
I didn't expect to get that DVD back anyway!
