Enlightenment

I feared this information had been lost last week, but I just found
the file where I placed it. That’s very fortunate, because this
information came from one of those truly illuminating moments. Last
week, while I was in the #gnome-hackers IRC channel, I saw one of
those conversations that leaves you pondering the sagacity of the
builders of Gnome. Meditate upon this and you will learn wisdom.

    <ed__> you should put linux on your ibook rml
 <tberman> thats like buying a 400 dollar paperweight and using it as
           a rock
 <Tybstar> Rupert: quote <tberman> thats like buying a 400 dollar
           paperweight and using it as a rock
  <Rupert> done
 <campout> "and using it as a rock" ?
 <campout> what is that supposed to mean?
     <rml> campout: haha
 <tberman> campout: buying a powerbook and using linux on it
<mtgordon> I have a piece of wood I like to use as a rock.
<mtgordon> It's not as heavy as a real rock would be.
 <campout> but "using it as a rock" ?
 <campout> that makes no sense
 <tberman> sure it does
 <tberman> how do you use rocks?
    <ed__> TO BUILD WITCHES
 <tberman> EXACTLY
<mtgordon> And if an ibook... weighs the same... as a duck...
    <ed__> BURN TBERMAN
    <ed__> BURN TBERMAN

…I love the fact that developing on Gnome is kept fun. :-)
