I would give it to an infinite number of monkies on an infinite number of typewriters an have them debug it over an infinite amount of time.
That should be an option on the poll.

If I seriously got access to you it, you can bet your ass it'd be all over the Internet within hours... :cool: Ever seen Antitrust? Yeah, same concept. :p

If a tree falls down in the woods and squashes bill gates. Would anybody care?

It all depends on what it is printed on. If it was printed on crate paper, then ouch. But lazer paper is kind of smooth (although a bit stiff), and dot matrix paper is just lovely, with those little holes down the sides that you can rip off (but you always end up ripping the paper) and it took like half an hour of THAT REALLY LOUD DOT MATRIX BUZZING for THIS TEN PAGE DOCUMENT TO BE PRINTED AND YOU RIP THE PAGE IN HALF WHEN TRYING TO PEEL OFF THE LITTLE HOLES.

Thank god for the inkjet.

Brian, have you been experimenting with this toilet paper stuff?

No, just sniffing too much toner at the printer.

No, I was merely commenting on the obvious technical design flaws in dot matrix printer paper.

If I got my hands on the Windows source code, I would feel obligated to remove all the randomly placed calls to sleep().

I'd sell it to some corperation. Then I'd post it all over the net and laugh at the idiots who bought it.

Give it to someone who would know how to make a Linux that would be compatible with ALL windows products.

I'd compile it and make a search for the words 'Microsoft Windows' and replace it with 'Xterriaos".
Come to think of it, what compiler did they use?

Brian

One they made especially for compiling Microsoft Windows.

how about actually fixing the damn code to make windows, *shock* an actually stable OS....

one that doesn't crash every 20 clock cycles.
