The site is usually quiet & calm.  That person shows up from time to time and starts a flame war.   Usually its a lot of obscene posts directed at whoever his target is.  Some have been so bad I've never seen anything like them.  You may have guessed I really don't like him.   Devil lol

What a schmuck.(Yiddish euphimism for someone not very nice). Twisted

Not to start anything with the Linux users here, I've seen this hostile attitude many times in many forums from Linux users.  Some of these people are so convinced of the superiority of Linux, and the inferiority of everything else, that they get quite belligerent about it.  And God help you if you say ANYTHING that could be construed as critical of Linux.  Thin skin is their standard equipment and they're best handled with tranquilizer darts.  Devil

Couldn't agree more; his posts make no sense.  They seem directed entirely at being offensive  Confused

I hope not - one irritating boring moron is more than enough  lol

This has just been posted by one of our members (Rush) over at PCR, it certainly took my mind off this misery:

From Silence of the Lambs

Rush: No! I will listen now. After you found a linux PC crunching, you were peeved. You were a Canadian. You went to live with cousins on a sheep and horse ranch in Montana. And...?
Dagorath: [tears begin forming in his eyes] And one morning, I just ran away.
Rush: No "just", Dagorath. What set you off? You started at what time?
Dagorath: Early, still dark.
Rush: Then something woke you, didn't it? Was it a dream? What was it?
Dagorath: I heard a strange noise.
Rush: What was it?
Dagorath: It was – screaming, some kind of screaming, like a crunchers voice.
Rush: What did you do?
Dagorath: I went downstairs, outside. I crept up into the barn. I was so scared to look inside, but I had to.
Rush: And what did you see, Dagorath? What did you see?
Dagorath : PC`s. The PC`s were crunching.
Rush: They were crunching the WU?
Dagorath: And they were getting points.
Rush: And you ran away?
Dagorath: No. First I tried to free them. I-I opened the gate to their On/Off button , but they wouldn't stop. They just stood there, crunching away. They wouldn't stop.
Rush: But you could and you did, didn't you?
Dagorath: Yes. I took one PC, and I ran away as fast as I could.
Rush: Where were you going, Dagorath?
Dagorath: I don't know. I didn't have any food, any water and it was very cold, very cold. I thought, I thought if I could save just one and convert it to get me more points i would rule the crunching world , but - it was so heavy. So heavy. I didn't get more than a few miles when the sheriff's car picked me up. The rancher was so angry he sent me to live at the Lutheran orphanage in Bozeman. I never saw the PC again.
Rush: What became of your PC, Dagorath ?
Clarice: They stopped him crunching for me .

Hannibal: I do wish we could chat longer, but I'm having an old friend for dinner.
you Dagorath



....certainly cheered me up a bit  Thumbs Up
