Home sick today.

I've wasted the last 2 weeks of my life on Nethack which is quite possibly the greatest game ever written, bar none. I'm really starting to dislike it though, because I'm having so much of my time taken up by playing the game. (I mostly play male elven wizards)

I just read the article about ESR, RMS, Perens, the OSI, and all of that. The poster pretty much echoed my thoughts on the matter. People worry about others posting things that are too inflammatory, but it's only really inflammatory if someone else rises to the bait. And besides, I suppose this is for honest discussion, not watered down politically correct speech. But would I feel the same way if the article had been opposite to my views? Who the hell knows.

I'm currently reading "Le Ton Beau de Marot" by Douglas Hofstadter. Excellent book, highly recommended. It has nothing to do with computing whatsoever.
