Geek Christmas crackers

Last night was the Wolves LUG Christmas bash, which was a great laugh. Traditionally, I do two things at the Christmas bash; I do a stand-up performance of the gorilla joke, which is a not very good joke that they all make me tell anyway, and I do some Christmas crackers with geeky mottoes in. This year, the mottoes were the following, if you’re doing something similar. Suggestions for next year are invited.

  • Look out behind you!
  • This fortune intentionally left blank
  • A very merry LUG Christmas
  • The world ends tomorrow AND YOU MAY DIE
  • Hope you like your Novell t-shirt
  • The Windows User Group down the road is more popular
  • Never trust an operating system you don’t have sources for.
  • Every time I think that perhaps we are an advanced race, I turn around and read ramblings on Slashdot, and realize I was wrong.
  • Geeks aren’t interested in politics because government doesn’t double its efficiency and speed once every 18 months.
  • Some software money can’t buy. For everything else there’s Micros\~1.
  • Linux - It is now safe to turn on your computer.
  • Linux is like a wigwam: no gates, no windows and Apache inside. (Chinese proverb c. 610 B.C.)
  • sudo apt-get moo
  • got root?
  • I never finish anyth
  • \</cracker>
  • help! I am imprisoned in a cracker factory
  • \$ man curry
  • w00t
  • j00 r 0wned
  • stfu n00b

  • crackr 2.0 beta

I’d also like to thank SitePoint, Fedora, and Novell for kindly sending me some free loot to give out to everyone. It was all appreciated, and now the bloke who runs the curry house we were in has an OpenSuSE hat, so thanks for that!

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
