    How would that be possible? He says he has more than enough work to
    keep him busy. Proof that that's true is demonstrated by how much time
    he spends googling for 5-10 year old problems with linux.

    Well, he is far from being a Snot Michael Glasser, who managed a whopping
    23.000 posts (the many sock puppets not counted) the last 500 days (after
    all, "teaching" and "preparing videos" apparently are done in no time at
    all, leaving lots of time to troll)

    But nonetheless DumbFull**** posted more than 6000 messages in the same
    time-frame.

    Still, his and Snot Glassers posts are about equal in their utter stupidity
    and dishonesty

    You might be able to find a tiny few out of 13000+ cola posts.

    You said your "time-frame" was 500 days.

    So why are you now using a 552 day period?

    Because you're a lying swine.

    I pointed out some of Peter's lies and despicable actions.

    He responded by running from the topic and whining about how often I post.

    That, like so much other of his trolling BS, blew up in his face.

    Oh well.

    I like his (and Tattoo Idiot's) claims that I don't use Linux. It should
    be blatantly clear to anyone with half a brain that I do. It would seem
    recognising weaknesses in Linux means one "does not use them". I feel a
    little sorry for them and their ilk.

    I guess telling the truth about bogus OSS code and ridiculous "advocates"
    does sound harsh sometimes. But there's no other way to deal with losers
    who claim:

    * Office Depot put all their Vista laptops on clearance

    * "Linux is secure." (period)
    * "Linux just works" (period)
    * Ubuntu is "perfect for laptops, desktops and servers."
    * "half of Europe dumped Windows"
    * Israel got rid of MS Office
    * Brazil switched to Linux
    * Linux "commands almost 100% of the desktop machines in China."
    * Linux installed base is around 12% - 13%
    * "the entire German government, French government, most of Scandinavia,
    /all/ of China, much of India..." switched to Linux
    * "Linux is expanding at the rate of 1 million+ desktops per week"
    * "Linux shipping 3 million embedded devices PER DAY and increasing."
    * "Microsoft is doomed"
    * "Microsoft is dying"
    * "Microsoft is dead"
    * "Linux won"
    * "Linux is winning"
    * "Linux will win"
    * "Linux has the potential to double the world's global output every 2 years
    for 10 years."
    * "Linux is 50x faster than Windows"
    * "GOOGLE REVENUES NOW ON A PAR WITH MICOSHAFT REVENUE"
    * "Vista actually requires more ram than a 32bit cpu can address."
    * "Fedora is Linux"
    * "Ubuntu isn't Linux"
    * "Vista will probably be based on the BSD kernel"

    blah blah blah... over and over for years the cola dopes ^^^^^ Windows
    programmers by day make silly statements like "MS is running scared" and
    "Linux/OSS will take your job".

    Interestingly enough, is replacing proprietary Hummingbird (good
    riddance) doc mgmt with open source Alfresco, but this actually means *more*
    work for me as now I have to integrate several Access systems with Alfresco.

    Last week took me to lunch to reassure they would have work for me
    through 2009 at least. It will be less Access, more Oracle and Business
    Objects,
    maybe SAS data mining. Those are all proprietary products. Plus, upgrades
    to Vista and Office 2007 are imminent.

    Yawnnn...Wake me when Linux starts "taking food off my plate."

    Oh, so sue me that I used a round number (500 days)

    Do you still deny that you posted in excess of 6000 posts in that timeframe?
    Your hero Snot Michael Glasser exceeded 23.000 posts in that same timeframe

    Naturally he had a wife to put food on the table, while Snot Glasser could
    haunt usenet with his trolling 24/7

    I love how Peter claims I do not use Linux and OSS and yet, clearly, there
    is a lot I know about it that he does not.

    He has yet to explain that. Or even acknowledge it.

    You must really hate Roy!

    Your number-of-post trolling was created to obfuscate the fact that you
    mocked MS Excel for a bug it *shares* with OpenOffice.

    Well, that and how you reacted to losing other Usenet debates by targeting
    my personal and business life with your trolling.

    You know *nothing* of my personal or my business life. Nothing. When you
    pretend otherwise you are lying. It really is that simple.
