I'm amazed by the amount of people that think stallman is a crackpot. They think that he is some hyper anal license freak and that everything he says is just dogmatic crap. He may be an annoying long haired hacker, but he is usually right. The reason that the GPL has to be so precise is because it has to be bulletproof in a legal sense. Details matter. It shouldn't be that hard for some of you to imagine. And yes, we can go back to hacking and just writing code BECAUSE Richard Stallman and the GPL exist.

Today seems to be psychological show and tell day. squiggy is my bro and even if we live in different countries we will always be buds. I don't think you should look back on recent years as a waste. You WERE living. Sometimes you had fun. You may not have a college degree, but you have made up for that by kicking ass professionally. You may be too fat to race bikes, but you have a great ass. I think taking some time off for Stantime is a brilliant idea. You're young, you have disposable income, and you have great vacation benefits. And you know that I am down for whatever. You just say the word.

So, back to me. I'm really fucking edgy right now. I'm not riding very smoothly. I'm a teepee and a wigwam. Walking reduces my stress. I've up'ed my walking routine to about 2.5+ hours a day.
