Nothing new, every few years (..or months) a new one pops up and tries to ruffle a few feathers.

I suspect this is more of a humorous/good-natured prank-post from a OpenBSD "Regular" ... Maybe even a developer.

In any case, it gave me a good laugh.

The one thing I'm unclear about is example.com domains.
How can I get OpenBSD to run .com files? I found that these
are actualy very old DOS binaries. How do other OpenBSD folks
manage them? Is it with Wine? Qemu running a stripped down XP?
haha.

Indeed. I thought he was joking on the misc list about com files until he mentioned it in response last night on here. He was dead serious that he couldn't figure out how to get www.google.com (an executable file, right?) to run under OpenBSD. He was serious. WOW.

Hm, I don't think so ... In fact, I'm fairly sure ...

He made a whole bunch of nonsense posts here, just to disrupt things or whatever.

His post at misc@ is still funny, his actions here weren't. What a loser.
