I chose the Linux one, April 1, 1970,

1st of April? Don't you mean the 1st of January?

Assuming the latter, at that exact moment I was in my parental home playing monopoly with my dad, 5 siblings, a couple of older sister's boyfriends and an uncle & aunt.

If you've ever played monopoly with a dozen people all mildly intoxicated (kids were allowed small glasses of Raisin Wine on Xmas and New Year), it gets very silly.

The neighbors must have thought we were mad; breaking out in to a chorus of happy birthday every time someone got the "It is your birthday, collect .." card.


With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
