Tin soldiers and Nixon coming, we're finally on our own...

Oh wait, wrong event. Sorry! Never mind!

You make it sound like fun, Paulie, instead of something to be endured. You sure you're doing this right?

I thought that was illegal in Ohio.

Oh, wait, that's Alabama. Sorry.

Speaking of which, editors@linuxtoday.com fails.

CSNY are timeless. Of course, younger people may like the music but not be aware of the events the song refers to. Is what happened at Kent State even taught in schools today?

I doubt it Caitlyn, most kids can't find the U.S. on a world map let alone know the significance of what happened that day.

Bob, I know. It got spammed to death. Someday I will be granted some dev time to come up with something else, like a web contact form. Gotta wait in line!

BTW, getting back to the actual topic here- it's interesting that Ohio Fest continues to grow, while after this year's Linux World everyone was wailing "Linux World failed because Linux is now commonplace and dull!" Mmmkay. That kind of reasoning reminds me of the famous Babbage quote:

Quoting: On two occasions I have been asked, 'Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?' I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question.


Lost in all the noise were vendors and visitors who said they were tired of the price-gouging.

I will say, that if I had had to pay the $500 or so to attend that being press relieved me of, it would have made my trip to San Francisco and LinuxWorld almost impossible. Yes, not paying the $500 just to get in made that big a difference.
