    The weird thing is I used TubeMogal to publish to multiple sites... it is
    not my typo - it did not show up on other sites. Thanks for pointing it out
    though. Just weird.

    Actually in this case it is not so bad - the use of my personal and private
    name is clearly not needed but it is at least in some reasonable context.

    Much more reasonable than what some others have been doing.

    These so called Linux advocates in COLA are a real nasty bunch of losers.
    I don't remember this group ever being so full of assholes.
    Ever since Roy Schestowitz started up his SPAM machine, the group has gone
    down the toilet.
    The proof is in the number of new Linux advocates posting.
    I can;t find a single one.

    All of HPT's nyms don't count of course.

    And look at all the good advocates that have left...

    It's a very long list if you go back 3 years ago and check Google.
    You will see many, many, Linux advocates, real advocates not self serving
    SPAMMERS like Roy Schestowitz, posting.

    The truth is when browsing via Google this group looks like a SPAM trap.
    Pages of messages from Schestowitz with no replies, mostly....

    He might as well be talking about Viagra because that is how it looks.

    But that's what Roy Schestowitz wants.

    Don't you guys get it yet?

    Obviously not....

    In the "real" world I simply *never* encounter such nastiness as I see in
    CSMA and COLA. People making issue of each other for color of skin, for
    health issues, to target their professional lives... none of these things
    would be accepted in the "real" world... those that crossed those lines
    would be socially ostracized - at least in civilized circles (there are
    groups that clearly do target others for such things... but even they tend
    to hide in the dark corners these days).

    I've never had a problem with Windows partitioning programs, but I
    haven't used them in over 10 years.

    I don't think it was the partitioning tool itself -- other Windows
    components on that machine had a habit of randomly dropping dead or
    freezing for seconds on end as well. This was also one of the main reasons
    the owner of the box wanted Linux installed -- and last I heard, he's still
    quite content with it, although his Vista install appears to have become
    noticeably more stable too, after a year of updates (he needs Windows for
    an accounting application not available for Linux).
