Ack bomb. Foozlegrad fitzgromble. Itty boostock.

haha! Wasn't that funny... true, I think I used the wrong phrase in there, but still! It's a joke; it doesn't have to be 100% accurate.

Hey you freaking nerds...this was a doesn't need to be 100% accurate, it is funny either way. You are all basically the same exact clone of one another. Always have to be the first one to make everything about computers and technology a d$ck measuring contest. I understand your need to "one up" everyone by proving how smart you are, and how dumb everyone else is. Maybe you were all picked on in high school and are now elitists because you know about computers and now are making more money than those dumb jocks who picked on you. I am sick and tired of you stereotypical computer nerds. I work in IT but I don't look down upon everyone like most of you.

AIX is not Linux. Watson was running Linux from what I read.

"rm -Rf /*" as root (no quotes), for nUbuntu users: The gods of African distro. naming thought you weren't smart enough to use the root login, so root is not available to you without some trickery. Research sudo, or install Slackware, and really learn Linux.
