Re: [vox] Keepin' my box cool

Quoting Rod Roark (rod@sunsetsystems.com):

Really?  I suggest that some other guy (perhaps you) need shopping
lessons.  This other character indulges outright name-calling.  You 
can't see any distinction?  How convenient for you.

That would be a tragedy if I were running a popularity contest or a

Indeed, how _about_ that, then?  Just exactly how many OSes do you _run_
on individual systems, such that 36 GB or so fails to suffice?  I assume
we must be talking about something like four or five slightly differing
kitchen-sink installations of SuSE, since otherwise the claim is
difficult to fathom, or at least an extreme outlying case that you would
have us believe is common.

Actually, I don't know you from Adam, let alone your business.  It
hadn't occurred to me to be interested, let alone that it would be
relevant to the discussion, which to the best of my understanding wasn't

Res ipsa loquitur.  I think the point obvious.  

Feel welcome to pound the table about your disagreement, if you wish.

But you're forgetting entertainment value -- and the fact that I'm a
very fast typist.  Which reminds me, I need to head off to run the
BayLISA picnic.
