Place to discuss anything, almost. No politics, religion, Microsoft, or anything else that I (the nazi censor) deem inappropriate.

I'va always known Microsoft to hold reasonable shares in RH, but buy them out?!?!
Where've you heard this, it seems to have missed my news radar if it's true.

Heh heh. When I realized what day it was I was just about to shut down for the night and I was too tired to think up anything good. This was all I could come up with. :) If I would have planned ahead I would have created a fake news article to go along with it. Oh well....

Kinda pleased you didn't. I was going crazy by the end of yesterday, what with /. lame affairs, freshmeat and their OH SO FUNNY ROT13 coding, and numerous other really really bad tech site gags.

It was very very annoying. I love a good gag but yesterday seems the worst I can remember, hell even the UPS guy at work came out with the same old - OH I GOT A DELIVERY FOR YOU GUYS, BUT I NEED SOME HELP, THERE ARE 50 BOXES. Arrgggghhh, like I have not heard that from almost every delivery guy for the last decade and more. Thankfully today was more sedate.

Any way must stop pointless rambling, old laptop to configure for terminal server.
