I'm having an issue with some kind of mis-configuration on my USB drive. It seems to dislike the town library's new wireless setup. However, the system on my netbook's internal storage has no problem with it.

I asked one of the librarians if she knew of some issue with the wireless. She pulled out her Nook, and reported quickly that indeed, something seems to be amiss, as the browser isn't loading the Google banner on their main page.

She loves her Nook, with the full Android system. And, because of it, she loves Linux. She's fully aware that the heartbeat of Android is the same as the heartbeat of my netbook. She said, "Who needs an iPad?"

It really warms the cackles of my heart.

"Cockles" of your heart. ;)

If that's what you're worried about, you'll never be a subversive, a mad scientist, or an evil genius. Or all three at once.

So are you saying that you didn't misuse the old expression by mistake -- that you intentionally used the word "cackles" instead of "cockles" --

and you did it because you think that it makes you "a subversive, a mad scientist, or an evil genius? Or all three at once?"

Not worried -- just wondering. ;)
