Re: Where are you?

Behind my eyes, a little upwards.
I was asking myself the same question some days ago. I never thought posting a thread about it though.

Re: xkcd edits

Windows 98 rocked. For anyone that used 95 or *gasp* 3.1, it really did rock. I still think it's the last version that looked good. I wouldn't trade XP Pro for it, but at the time it was a huge leap less backward. THANK YOU. I think I would've chosen the being-attacked-by-raptor to represent a bad ...

Re: E-books

#ebooks @ irc.undernet

Most of what I read is in ebook format as paper books are expensive around here. For the longest time the only disadvantage was that ebooks tied me to my computer for reading but it hasn't been a problem since I got my N73 and installed Mobipocket reader on it.

Re: Convincing a school to switch to Linux

With every day that I'm forced to use Windows in school, I'm taking it more and more as a personal insult. Why? the point is that by using proprietary software in school, they're upholding a system that is IMO bad and immoral . Why do you think that? At the moment you look like a Linux fanboy who t...

What can be bought online for $20?

I need to test if a credit card works internationally or not. I was thinking about a pro account at flickr but I don't upload enough photos to make it worth it. What else could be bought for 20-25 bucks?
