ITYM "giving a running chainsaw to a three-year-old".  HTH.

Because, during the dark days of the Morgan administration, the electrons
would have been wasted.  TLUG devolved in the same manner as did the Linux
kernel.  What had once been a forum for informed discussion about the
capabilities of free UNIX became a cesspool inhabited by ignorant yammerheads
trying to (ill-advisedly) fit free UNIX into their pre-conceived notions of
what a proper OS should be.

Most of us left TLUG.  We've gradually come back, one at a time, but I don't
think we'll ever get back to where things were in 1998.

and reassumes his throne)

*chuckle* Sure they are.  Want to discuss misfeatures of UVM as implemented
in NetBSD-2.0?
