Dead Parrot

everybody loves eric raymond episode 43 strip

ELER is back from it’s unscheduled multiple week holiday. ELER is not a dead parrot.

I got an e-mail from Linus Torvalds. I don’t think he liked the Tivo strip:

“being able to change your opinions and your mind depending on changes in circumstances or in the face of new information is called ‘intelligence'”.

I asked him for his opinion on the strip in general but received no further e-mails. I’ll take it as read that he loves ELER and wishes to continue starring in it, perhaps with a couple of nude scenes some day.

Have you booked your hotel for LUGRadio Live 2006 yet? Be there or b2.
