I haven't bought that t-shirt either...

Funny thing is that even my girlfriend realised the advantage of me
not giving support for "friend": More time with her ;-)

Thats why I tell them that I am a software-DEVELOPER and otherwise
hardware and software just has to work for me (which is the reason I
no longer use windows if there isn't a real good reason like UT or
Corel Draw [*]).

BTW: I am one of those nvidia-binary-users. :-) And it works, even
with low-latency-audio and semitransparent windows. Seeing ardours
meters behind the tracks _is_ nice!

Have a nice weekend,


[*] Yes, I know. Ut can be run on linux too and inkscape is a good
replacement for Corel, but the files are in Corel and currently I only
have to do minor modifications on them. Not enough to switch them over
to svg...

Wenn man mit Raubkopien Bands wie Brosis oder Britney Spears wirklich
verhindern könnte, würde ich mir noch heute einen Stapel Brenner und
einen Sack Rohlinge kaufen.
