There actually is a Cobblers pie, albiet a brand name, not a type of pie.

As for the bath, Im more of a shower man. There's just something wrong about wallowing in your own filth. Also, last time I used the bath I accidently left the taps on full for about 3 or so hours and only noticed when the carpet around my bedroom doorway started getting darker. Flooded the absolute smeg out of the rest of my house though. Was 3 or 4 inches deep throughout 2/3rds of it. I live in flats too, so my neighbors place ended up with water too.
Near as I can tell this is where I write something under the guise of being innocuous, but really its a pot shot at another persons/peoples choice of Amiga based systems. Unfortunately only I cant see how transparent and petty it makes me look.

Ah, this is just like the good old days! :D

I've missed you guys. It's too bad I've lost interest in the Miggy. :(

@Whabang, Nice to have you back. Join the club.

I still look back at the Amiga sort of nostalgically but I couldn't use it as my main system any more. I just vist here for the laughs nowadays.

@ Franko, Nice bath tips.:laughing:

I think I am going to print that out and send it to someone I know. Actually I'll just mail it to save the trees and all that. ;)

One would think that off-topic posting would be discouraged, but on the other hand this is the .org. :D

Edit: Oh, and Denmark is nice. Don't think I'll be moving back to Sweden anytime soon.

We saw where this thread was rolling and decided to blow out the next rail bridge (many posts back now) which happened to span a deep ravine. It's hard to tell from the wreckage. Something to do with ... stuff. I forget :D

Socks. There is no stuff that cannot be replaced with socks.

Well, that would imply that it was installed out of box. :)
I'm building a Debian system to be as lean as possible. As you may know, I do not approve of bloat!

(I can't believe I wrote that, but it's old and forgotten, right?)

Yeah, I was using the same name in some stupid web browser game. Someone at work playing on the same server googled whabang, and made me the laughing stock of the office for a few days. ^^
