Quite a few of the jokes circulating about the debian screw-up are quite entertaining.

Poor *predictable* people.

Both of them were penned long before the bug was found - but not, incidentally, before the bug was written (spooky music)......

I also find Linux audio schema very funny (and jelous at the same time):

Reminds me of Kid Radd. It was before the days of flash, and it was done using browser hacks and animated gifs. (before the days of css, as well.) It was also very small: the gifs were, at most 64x64 pixels (rare 'special' annimations may have been up to 256).
Unfortunately, the bowser hacks have dated, and it no longer works in IE6+, and even firefox has some issues.
The writer was a better hacker than he was an author, but the story does work. (even if the animations don't.)

No, I had started work on a python script in code/C++/src/qsm for testing an idea. It barfed NameError's whenever referencing something in the qt module, unless I changed directories /even/ in an interactive session lol.

'qt' is the module for Pythons Qt3 bindings.

Yes, this is news nowadays:

Man gets Windows Vista to work with printer

I have a old Philips dot matrix printer, it's from 1984 (older than I am):
# cat file.txt > /dev/lpt0

FreeBSD is harder than Windows? Pfff

Nice find!
At least a FAQ I could read from top to bottom, and beyond this, understood both the question(s) and the answer(s). Not that I needed the FAQ though.
