    It's genetic.
    If his mother was a Jenny and his father was a Jack. Then he MUST be an ass.
    It's nature's way...
    Of course, his mother COULD be a Mare and his father a Jack, which would
    make him a mule.

    I think I prefer that to the alternative. He can't spread his genetic
    material to the next generation as a mule.

    Maybe they could get the Warpstock "board of directors" (the Beard
    brothers, Chris Chringle and Mr Pot Belly (Vietnam OS/2 user)) to
    analyse the bid process for hosting the event?

    LOL. Do NOT read this unless you have an empty stomach!!!!

    http://www.warpstock.org/staticpages...p?page=bidproc

    (estimated attendance : 5)

    ,----
    | Step 1 – Opening of Bidding
    |
    | The Board of Directors will announce that bidding is open for a
    | particular event. This announcement will contain a date by which groups
    | wishing to submit bids must signal their intent to make a bid to host a
    | Warpstock Event.
    |
    | Step 2 – Letter of Intent
    |
    | Teams wishing to bid on hosting a Warpstock Event must declare their
    | intention to do so by a date set by the Board. This may be accomplished
    | by sending electronic mail to the Board of Directors.
    |
    | This letter of intent should contain a list of the individuals involved,
    | the city or area that the event would be held, and the suggested time of
    | year for the event. The letter of intent may contain any additional
    | information about the proposed bid that the team wishes to share. This
    | letter does not need to be in great detail about the proposed event, but
    | rather, a commitment from the group about entering into the bid process.
    |
    | A reply will be sent upon receipt of the initial information. If a reply
    | is not received within 48 hours of submission, please contact any Board
    | member directly to determine the notification status.
    |
    | Step 3 – Invitation to Submit a Bid
    |
    | Once an initial "intention" has been made, the Board will invite the
    | group to submit an official bid. The Board will remain in close contact
    | with the Teams throughout the remainder of the bid process. A Board
    | member may be assigned as liaison to each Team. It is expected one
    | person on the bid team will become the liaison to the Board during this
    | time.
    |
    | The bid should contain the information outlined in the Bid Submission
    | Outline.
    |
    | Step 4 – Bid Review
    |
    | As soon as all of the bids have been received, the Board will review all
    | proposals and arrive at a decision as to the winning bid. The Board will
    | base its decision upon the merits of the bids. The Board may also
    | arrange a "virtual" meeting with the bid team to discuss specifics of
    | the proposal. This meeting would be either by Internet Relay Chat or
    | telephone conference call.
    |
    | Step 5 – Decision Announcement
    |
    | Once the Board has arrived at a decision, it will announce the winning
    | Annual Event Team together with the location and date of the Warpstock
    | Event.
    |
    | Step 6 – Preparation
    |
    | After the Board has announced its selection, the Event Team will enter
    | into an agreement with the Board to put on the Event. While the Event
    | Team has the primary responsibility to put on the event, the Board has
    | the responsibility for oversight and for entering into such contracts as
    | are required for the Event to take place.

    Oh, and Google is paying for it.

    Which ones? It was DFS who brought up this as freeloading, not any
    advocate.

    It's not about Roy, either, but you dragged him in. And a lot of other
    people in COLA don't hate Google, either.

    No. Why do you say freeloading? Do *YOU* never accept a generous gesture
    from anyone? How do you know this isn't Google's way of saying 'thanks' to
    developers?

    You seem to enjoy being a dickhead, just like DFS.

    What insult? Why so prissy? FWIW, they ARE free loading. Google is
    hosting as in throwing the dog a bone.

    And why?

    I'll tell you why.

    So they can cherry pick their best programmers.

    A market doing what a market does best.

    Priceless! A one-day meeting in a small hotel conference room, with a
    projector and 6' pull down video screen, attended by a handful of 60+year
    old OS/2 wackos "requires the dedicated efforts of many volunteers to put on
    an event such as Warpstock and make it a success." and he asks for "host
    cities" to submit bids to the 'Board of Directors' and it's all coordinated
    by the 'Event Team'. ROFLMAO!

    The only Warp is in their minds.

    Obviously, KDE is now on Google's payroll and is just another official
    division of the evil Google monopoly.

    So, the idea of generosity is alien to you, obviously. Also, have you
    considered that the KDE devs are not stupid?

    Only if they want to be picked. And according to DFS, FOSS programmers are
    all crap. Seems Google disagrees.

    So what? Good luck to the coders if they want the jobs offered.
