Oh yes, I am saving a whole 3.22 dollars A YEAR!!!! What an amazing program, how do they do it? It is magic!!!! When will it be ported to BSD?
And it only costs USD 100, meaning a break even point of 30 years, not even including intrest

Well, this one is geek out moment.
No, I didn't try to work out the resistance of the mass, but I bet someone has.

There's enough EE in-jokes in there to keep anyone going. I'm sure I'll find more

Just installed ArchLinux which I need for a project ...

Code:
$ mount.cifs
Segmentation fault

$ mount.cifs -h 
Usage: mount.cifs <remoteagent> <dir> -o <options>
[... More usage output ...]

$ mount.cifs //192.168.43.101/aragorn /mnt/ -o user=mtournoij
[ ... Works as expected ... ]
Linux ...

If you want a real LOL out of that, last month I made the compiler crash by including an extra set of <template, stuffs> in a method inlined into the class. Ditto for 9.0.

I just noticed that dig is 1.3M in my FreeBSD 7 machine. Wow.
For reference, the entire maradns package is also 1.3M (This includes a authoratize server, a recursive resolver, a "dig-like" utility, and documentation).

I was/am building a small FreeBSD LiveFS. I guess it'll be without bind and with some other resolver.
