Labor Of Love

There was a popular joke among nerds that goes like this :

Windows: "Where do you want to go today?"
Linux: "Where do you want to go tommorow?"
FreeBSD: "Are you guys coming or what?"

That in essence sums up a partial truth of where different operating systems stood.The gap is closer but the distinction still exists.Anyways my access to the outside world has been say, rather limited, because I dont have my lapyop anymore and I have been trying to make do with an old relic of a machine and hence the installation of FreeBSD and the usual process of building the browser related stuff.
FreeBSD is really a labor of love and I had to labor hard to get it up and running here .( Had to go through a minor period of instanity doing the same thing over again and expecting different results)

Finally here I am with a machine to access this world again.Need to send a couple of important emails, so will be back with normal dispatches soon.

Errrrm, Free BSD is a labour (or labor) of love????!!!

Oh and I did read the, 'Elephants on Neptune' finally. Is nice in a somewhat morbid/ disturbing way. The best bit was, 'Our nature is that we always tell the truth. Our tragedy is that we always remember it.'... Have you read the Ultimate Earth?

Yep! 100%. Also known as Berkeley Unix :)

Glad you resonated with the elephants of neptune. I didnt read the Ultimate Earth. What is it?
