Message from The Tuxers: Think, Dave! Don’t Use Windows!

[First posted on November 8, 2007, as part of the now dormant “Luddites” project.]

I saw two of The Tuxers watching and waiting as I booted up my laptop.

I soon learned why. They had recently hacked my /boot/grub/menu.lst file:

Think Dave! Think!

These are twin Tuxers. I find it hard to tell them apart, so I call them “Ubuntu” and “Debian,” as they are so closely linked.

In fact, it took several attempts to get this photo right. By default the flash is on for my Kodak C300 camera. I wanted to turn off the flash but didn’t know how, so I went inside to look for a manual. Unable to locate it, I then used Google to locate the appropriate manual page. It took less than a minute:

I noted the Tuxer’s message, but am begging off for a bit while I try to find useful instructions on getting Notes to run under Ubuntu 7.10.

Sorry about that, Tuxers — and Lotus — but I will continue my project of becoming a full-time Ubuntu user as time permits.
