Alright, I've been waiting for the return of Ryan OS. What's that? Why, you ask. Good question, ummm...because...I just have. Besides, just because Ryan got a girlfriend doesn't mean he would abandon his geek-hood. If he doesn't add GUI how else will he run Microsoft out of business.<P><P>------------------

Mmmmh, the things I have in my library . . . I offer this quote from the <I>Acknowledgements</I> of Richard A. Burgess's <I>Developing Your Own 32-bit Operating System</I>:<P>'I must also apologize to the copy editors and proofreaders. I do know the difference between <I>there</I>, <I>their</I> and <I>they're</I>, and also between <I>it's</I> and <I>its</I>. While typing at 60 WPM, listening to the Crash Test Dummies and Boingo at 100 decibels, and gulping down coffee and sodas like nobody's business, anything can happen and usually does. Hundreds of pages in six months...never again!'<P>For you unbelievers, who refuse to believe such a book exists: (C) Sams Publishing 1995, ISBN 0-672-30655-7, LCCCN 94-69271. The moment I saw it, I knew I had to own that book . . . <P>Ryan has a life now, thanks to DD - on the other hand, he's one of us . . . who knows?<P>[Edited for typos and layout]<p>[This message has been edited by Klaus Petersen (edited 09-25-2001).]

I love the line at the end of today's comic. "Well, you won't be able to access any I/O devices..." <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/biggrin.gif"><P>And, yes, Ryan is definitely One Of Us. And if you aren't One Of Us, you're One Of Them. And shall promptly be turned into a Lyncher Drone.<P>------------------

I'm 'one of us' and it is possible to still be 'one of us' while getting some g/f action on the side. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/biggrin.gif">

"Patriotism seems to be falling to whoever claims it loudest, and we're left struggling to find a definition in a clamor of reaction. This is what I'm hearing: Patriotism opposes the lone representative of democracy who was brave enough to vote her conscience instead of following an angry mob. (Several others have confessed they wanted to vote the same way, but chickened out.) Patriotism threatens free speech with death. It is infuriated by thoughtful hesitation, constructive criticism of our leaders and pleas for peace. It despises people of foreign birth who've spent years learning our culture and contributing their talents to our economy. It has specifically blamed homosexuals, feminists and the American Civil Liberties Union. In other words, the American flag stands for intimidation, censorship, violence, bigotry, sexism, homophobia, and shoving the Constitution through a paper shredder? Who are we calling terrorists here? Outsiders can destroy airplanes and buildings, but it is only we, the people, who have the power to demolish our own ideals."
