I hit F to say something about the length of your .signature, but I bow
before the eloquence of my own sigmonster.
Yeahbut ... sometimes you need to say something that just can't be McQ-
If you chase the prerequisites by installing their RPMs, the first 3-4 levels
will seem reasonable, but once you're down ~10 levels, the new version of echo
will end up requiring upgrades of libc, the kernel, or the color of the solder
mask on the PC board of your link partner's network card. -- Matt Roberds
Not quite as good, but compliant. Not much room for one's own name, though.
I also should probably admit that I think I stole the "color of the solder
mask" thing from somewhere else.
