In memoriam
Almut Behrens, 2 Feb 1967 - 24 Aug 2010

Due to a tragic accident, Almut is no longer with us.

She was a passionate hacker with a particular love for Perl and Unix/Linux. In the course of her life, her analytical mind and perseverance made her excel in such diverse fields as electronics, psychology, photography and programming. Besides her innate interest for all things technical, she also was an enthusiastic alpine hiker and loved outdoor adventures and nature's wilderness for recreation. Above all, she was a wonderful partner who always retained a sense of humor, even when times were tough. I cannot find words to express how much I miss her.

[Corion]: Your Mother: Yeah
[Your Mother]: Americans are still pumping out video games where you get to slaughter as many Germans as you have the GPU for... It has always struck me as odd that this particular case seems fine to people. :\
[LanX]: yep heard the same origin story
[Your Mother]: I like it. I tottered on going into hucksterism because I feel like the world deserves it.
[LanX]: he ... we have a movement here called Anti-Germans based on this
[Corion]: Your Mother: I think that's because (in the west) the Nazi-Germans are recognized as universally evil. Of course, you could do some number games to calculate other measures of evil than "historic losers of second world war" to come up with other evils:)
[Corion]: I've heard "Troll" described as the new Punk, and in a way, it can be as destructive as living the Punk lifestyle, and you don't have to sit out in the cold...
[LanX]: Anti-Germans
[LanX]: Socrates was a Troll
[Your Mother]: It's very, very dangerous... Thinking that a group is intrinsically evil... buries the fact that all humans can be so deep that it starts to become likely they will be.
