Default Have you read this ****?

Have any of you read this story yet?

http://www.adequacy.org/?op=displays...2/2/42056/2147

It's the most obsurd thing I've ever read, what total bull**** that this T Reginald Gibbons has said about computing in general. I can't belive someone could be so ignorant to anything like this.

Have you seen the amount of comments that have been posted (still loading for me).

Default It's a joke.

I wasn't realy sure until I got to this paragraph about linux and Linus Torvolds.

----------------------------------------
8. Is your son obsessed with "Lunix"?

BSD, Lunix, Debian and Mandrake are all versions of an illegal hacker operation system, invented by a Soviet computer hacker named Linyos Torovoltos, before the Russians lost the Cold War
--------------------------------------

Kind of funny stuff actually.

Line 1 : "enlightened, modern parent"
Line 2 : "I attend their teen parties" <<< Joy
chapter 2 line 2 : "we bough a new Compaq" <<< Show what he know about computers.

I didn't read to the end of the article, this thing's place is in some one's Fun pages or toghether with my Sell electronics on Ebay tutorial.

My favorite part is when the author tells parents to look for software that their hacker children have installed on their computers.
Quote:
Are you finding programs on your computer that you don't remember installing?
Your son will probably try to install some hacker software. He may attempt to conceal the presence of the software in some way, but you can usually find any new programs by reading through the programs listed under "Install/Remove Programs" in your control panel. Popular hacker software includes "Comet Cursor", "Bonzi Buddy" and "Flash".
The best option is to confront your son with the evidence, and force him to remove the offending programs. He will probably try to install the software again, but you will be able to tell that this is happening, if your machine offers to "download" one of the hacker applications. If this happens, it is time to give your son a stern talking to, and possibly consider punishing him with a grounding.
I think the article is really quite funny.

P.S. I also love how almost every other word is a link.
