Diplomatic immunity

everybody loves eric raymond episode 27 strip

“I humorously remind Richard that he and I both have immunity as delegates, and he responds “You mean, I should have shot that guy Kramer?”. Kramer is the CompTIA representative who comes along to these things to relate an pro-software-patenting and generally anti-Free-Software viewpoint which gets Richard very steamed up. There’s a laugh, and I explain that our immunity probably doesn’t go that far. Richard goes on to say that he wouldn’t really kill anyone, but no doubt UN Security has heard this entire exchange too.” – Bruce Perens

Apologies for the Golden Palace dickheads adverts, but I thought the joke was worth it. I’m not profiting in any way from it and never plan to. Golden Palace Casino are the epitome of evil marketing. I wish there were a hell so they could burn in it.

Apparently inspired by ELER, Michael Erskine has created Everybody Loves LUG Radio.

T-SHIRT UPDATE: Ok, last t-shirt update. The print run will begin on Friday, so today and tomorrow are your last chances to get a pre-order in. If you want sizes other than L or XL, I’d highly recommending ordering before Friday. Schlep over to the ELER shop.

I forgot to say this, but, would a ghost really need diplomatic immunity? i mean what are they gonna do? Kill him again?


Beautiful Lethal Weapon 2 references in this one – well done, John :)

“Diplomatic immunity!”
“It’s just been revoked!”

So if RMS is Rudd (Joss Ackland), ESR is Murtaugh (Danny Glover) and Linus is Riggs (Mel Gibson), who should we get to play Leo (Joe Pesci)?

“But, but, but … your PC keyboard is *blick*!”

“Leo, can you fix all these pop-up windows that have appeared on my screen?”
“Sure Riggs, lemme start clickin’ … OK, OK, OKOKOKOKOKOK …”
