    The great mystery

    The great mystery.
    A dramatic look at one event that has shaken this board forever..... (play freaky music)

    Ever since Dean/Witch_Craft/Sunlight/Bill Gates’ ........../ started going pro-Microsoft…. It concerned me as to why the dramatic change. I was going through old posts between April and May noticed something happened. Something so dramatic that altered the mind of whoever was behind this persons postings…. I have several theories as to what may have happened. Read on and you be the judge….

    Between April and May there was a dramatic change in Dean’s postings. Here are some examples

    “As Linux stands now it is a more stable O/S than Win2k. Linux could have been plug and play long time ago, it is only now that hardware manufactures are building device drivers to communicate with Linux O/S. Yes, it can happen very fast. M$ could be replaced in less than 12 months. You think that M$ is the top O/S due to performance? Not so. M$ has a monopoly on O/S distribution but it has no way of defending itself against Linux if corporations that build hardware beging to support Linux. This is exactly what is beginning to happen. M$ will be forced to diversify and move out of the computer industry perhaps even. There is no way in hell that it can compete.”

    That was dean before the event

    “Microsoft has a much better plan, maybe it has something to do with money, but whatever the case, it's better to join in on a sure thing. Looking forward to .NET and WinXP professional 64-bit”

    Dean after that event.

    Possibilities as to what may have happened…

    -Sunlight murdered Dean. This is the obvious one. Sunlight was always pro-Microsoft and was obviously annoyed by Dean’s rampant Anti-Microsoft postings. So he eliminated him. Then took the place as Dean slowly to get more people go his way. Its obvious, that this eventually become too much, to pose as both Sunlight and Dean, so Sunlight slowly slipped away…..

    -Dean was murdered by Microsoft. Another possibility. He was then replaced by a marketing executive at Microsoft.

    -Bill Gates ganged rapped Dean with Steve Ballmer, Rick Belluzo, and other executives at the company, after which Dean was sooo frightened by the experience he promised to only post pro-Microsoft stuff on the site

    -Sunlight and Dean had homo-intercourse, and magically produced a child within a few months. Of course the Windows genes, drove the other Linux, and Unix genes to hell, first overpowering them, and then using anti-competitive tactics to bring them down, and strengthen their strangle hold, on the new born’s mind. This ‘baby’ then took the place of Dean and started posting on this board.

    -Dean is a robot, that was hacked by Microsoft programmers- and reprogrammed with pro-Microsoft stuff

    -Dean was placed in Microsoft concentration camps in which he was repeatedly required to emit pro-Microsoft mantra

    -Dean was actually Bill Gates, on crack, speed, LSD, and several other drugs. After Gates would shoot up, he would come to this board dis-oriented and posted pro-Unix mantra. After the anti-trust clouds started to lift, the need for drugs lifted away, and Gates returned to his pro-Microsoft antics.

    -Dean is actually CollegeGirl. She wanted to look 'cool' with all the ‘guys’ on the board, so it was pro-Unix and Linux all the way. But once her ‘womanhood’ came out, she showed no fear of promoting her beloved Windows. (Which by all means ruins any chances for a date with me! Note to self, remove this before posting…..)

    These are the possibilities as to why this unbelievable event has occurred. Will the mystery ever be solved? only you can decide…………………..

    (dramatic music on fade-out)

    (I am sure this is going to generate some "interesting" posts......)

    Dean/Witch_King/Sunlight are all one person. There is no rational explanation for it. Why would "Dean" on the old board joke so much about Sunlight killing himself? Because Sunlight changed his name to Dean, so he terminated his old alias. Since Dean has a bit of a rep as the M$ b####, he's now Witch_King (by far the lamest name used by anyone here).

    Of course this is all just a theory

    Home Time

    You should get a double fracture of your humerus (like I have) and then you get two months home time (boring).

    Oh come on its easy to get time off work that way.

    Just go into the roughest pub (bar for you US guys) you can find.

    Start chatting up the most "married looking" women you can find. If this doesn’t result in the necessary violence, then pinch the doorman's backside.

    When you regain consciousness you will be satisfied in the knowledge that there will be months of healing before you need to go back to work. Ha – what could be simpler?

    I prefer this method:
    go into a bar (pub for you British guys). Find the largest, toughest looking guy in the bar. Spit in this guy's beer.
    All generalizations are false

    >Dean/Witch_King/Sunlight are all one person. <

    If this be the case, a simple solution would be to
    address them all as Sybil. Then everybody would know
    who you're talking to or about.

    Sunlight's writing style was so different from Dean's,
    we have to be talking multiple personalities here.
    It could be possible that Dean killed off Sunlight and
    created Witch_King as a subordinate homeopathetic
    personification of a more manic schizoid serial
    bedwetter, which would be more in line with a
    person with a triple personality pscho kinetic
    disorder. This is all pure conjecture except for one
    small fact we all know: Dean's cuckoo.

    No. Wait. Don't hang up!

    This is America calling!

    I am a homeopathetic because I don't like to leave my basement (or "home") since I got into computers two years ago. The "opathetic" part of this place is that it doesn't have a .NET board.
    I compile code with:
    Visual Studio.NET beta2
