Umm.... clicking on the link to menonnite's poem jumps down to Brad Milson's QB magazine rant. Is that it? :D :wink:

Well, he probably passed out from lack of sleep and from the constraints that we/he gave him.


"Wake up, Seb."

"What... what the hell? [ctrl-x]"

"Follow the Linux penguin..."

"Follow the Linux penguin? [esc esc]"

"Knock knock, Seb."

You were worried there for a bit, but #13 turned out to be a great issue! Great job on your part too. :D

Why was Seb marked as a guset without his little 'No one can tell you what QBinux is...' spin-off?
