Well, I’m originally from the Czech Republic. I’m not a pretty young
lady, though >
I was born in “Ostrov nad Ohri, okres Karlovy Vary” which is about 100km
I visit Prague somewhat regularly (once every few years) and I might be
going this year.
Mmmmmm… Velkopopovicky Kozel / Radegast / Plenzksy Pivo! >
I have Robert’s book (with his photon on the back cover) and I can vouch
that he’s not a pretty young lady.
Althought he’s not, I’d still like to meet him, and maybe convince/force him
to sign my copy of his book
Nor I’m one, I (like few others I know do have more in common with Santa
(one little joke will hopefully insult no-one
Why your Sysadmin is Santa Claus
It’s very interesting that Sysadmins and Santa Claus seem to have a lot of
common ground. Of course, you shouldn’t mention this to either of them as
they tend to think they’re unique (another common feature!). Consider the
following facts (more could be made up, if some come to your mind, mail them
- Santa is bearded, corpulent, and dresses funny.
- When you ask Santa for something, the odds of receiving what you wanted
- Santa seldom answers your mail.
- When you ask Santa where he gets all the stuff he’s got, he says, “Elves
make it for me.”
- Santa doesn’t care about your deadlines.
- Your parents ascribed supernatural powers to Santa, but did all the work
- Nobody knows who Santa has to answer to for his actions.
- Santa laughs entirely too much.
- Santa thinks nothing of breaking into your $HOME.
- Only a lunatic says bad things about Santa in his presence.
But if you’re not that far from Prague maybe we should have a QNX meeting
there. I’ve heard about some very interesting lifestyle customs in
Is it true?
This depends a lot on what you do call interesting, but yeah, I really do
love to live here
But what really sucks is a lots of real stupid foreigner tourists (Well,
this doesn’t mean that Czechs can’t (and don’t) act like total assholes
In either case, gather up a gaggle of pretty young ladies and I’m there!
Lot of pretty ladies around here, but only a few of them really knows what
is PC ( far beyond there limits lies knowledge of what an OS is, not
speaking about RTOS ))))
(Yeah, they still know a lot of other interesting “stuff”, I can swear
Btw, do you know why there are so little of women that likes QNX ? Maybe
'cos women are not predictable
(In my dreams anyway.)
Well, sometimes dreams comes true (In fairy tales, i guess >
