Elementary, my dear Pedro! I use funky little squiggles, not dashes. I
am fair and square, sir. No RFC can touch me.
Also, I'd like to point out that I started re-reading this thread due
to an off-list message from BRIAN BEHLENDORF, who likes to send me
little tidbits and factual corrections because we're all tight like
that. Salaam, Brian, when you eventually read this.*
Anyways, after some several hundred messages this thread just petered
off into nowheresville, and I never actually found out how to be cool,
which I desperately need. The "apt-get install python" joke is wearing
dangerously thin, and I need some tips or they're going to kick me off
the bitchx-developers list.
I am somewhat to blame for this tragedy (end of thread), being that I
started composing a long Doyle parody based on the life of Mister Bad,
of 22 Baker Street, in response to Pedro's clever manoeuver to shift
blame onto me, and then I got distracted and I never quite got back to
it and this thread ground down into nothingness.
* OK, actually, it's because he reads Crackmonkey like once every five
months** and so he's too embarassed to respond on-list. Which I
think is kind of touchingly naive, in a way.
** Why he doesn't just kiboze the list, I dunno.
