_kaiser_abrotman: ahh, thanks... that worked :)
holycowpredder, the most important thing to remember is that open source / free software doesn't exist so that we can work for free to provide the ungratefull a free product
it exists for us that are part of the process, that is the basis
hardlinedanybody have experience restoring a system with a deleted /bin without reinstalling?
Azarholycow: nothing wrong about rewarding the developers I am there with you
predder<holycow> predder, is windows? <-- so that's a "no"?
abrotman_kaiser_: but you should read hte man page to understand why :)
!reinstall
dpkgsomebody said reinstall was COLUMNS=200 dpkg -l | awk '/^[hi]i/{print $2}' | xargs apt-get -y --reinstall install, or dpkg --get-selections > my_packages.txt , then later, dpkg --set-selections < my_packages.txt && apt-get install
holycowAzar, absolutely. if you want to see what happens when you start getting the ungratefull onboard, go to #ubuntu
mostly good people but they are going to start suffering from the eternal september
_kaiser_abrotman: yeah, I did read it. I understand. :)
holycowwhich is a really neat concept i only recently discovered, let me post a link to the definition
Azarand I would Buy Debian no matter how much would cost. And if I can't do that i would contribute.
_kaiser_abrotman: thank you.
Azarholycow: heh, I can imagine
holycowhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Endless_September
abrotman_kaiser_: enjoy
holycowread that i never considered that from a real support level perspective
_kaiser_:)
holycowbut we haveto actually be carefull JUST HOW successfull we want to be in getting the ungratefull to come onboard
solemnwarningI wonder if the bug which is breaking X will be fixed in etch :\
jelly-homeAzar: I'll sell you Debian!
Azarif they do that now that they don't pay for it, imagine when they buy it what kind of hell they would raise at the developers
holycowit might be more beneficial to simple cede ms whatever it wants and work long term on the cultural an dsocial issues
or something like that
Azar, totally
don't forget, these are the same bozos that made ms what it is
Azarjelly-home: Money should go to "all" who work at Debian
holycowthey are the ones that kept on buying complete and utter garbage over and over again
jelly-homeAzar: there's no practical way to do that.
holycowthere is zero chance they will put any value on quality or the floss culture, they just want free for nothing
PingFloydholycow: personally, I don't care who uses linux
Azarjelly-home: it should be, mention this to the future DPL... someone should start taking care of this issue
bokeyAzar, have you played http://sauerbraten.org/ ?
holycowPingFloyd, me neither, i'm just commenting on the consequences OF EVERYONE using it
Azarmoney for all or for no one
PingFloydholycow: if someone is interested in it, I'll try to help with get around with it
holycowit might not be what we bargained for i guess
Azarbokey: I heard of it but never tried
