    and i'm really starting to reconsider the time Fedora takes from me to fix
    petty issues like this. The hundreds of hours i have invested in Red Hat and
    Fedora only make me cringe when i think of switching distros."

    Fedora has always been a mess.
    I wouldn't touch it with a 20 foot barge pole.

    Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron would be a good choice.

    This is DFS; the only technology he'd manage to run for six months
    without needing to reinstall is an Etch-a-Sketch.

    on the road when my partner Kelsey Bjarnason said:

    I thought that required more brain power than your basket weaving. Well,
    what do I know!?!

    Wrong. He'd have it turned upside-down, shaken, and slicked in a matter
    of minutes.

    I laid out memory so the bottom 640K was general purpose RAM and the upper
    384 I reserved for video and ROM, and things like that. That is why they
    talk about the 640K limit. It is actually a limit, not of the software, in
    any way, shape, or form, it is the limit of the microprocessor. That thing
    generates addresses, 20-bits addresses, that only can address a megabyte of
    memory. And, therefore, all the applications are tied to that limit. It was
    ten times what we had before. But to my surprise, we ran out of that address
    base for applications within... oh five or six years people were
    complaining.
