in thread We blame tye.

Come on, read it with a smiley in mind. It thought it was amusing. Probably no harm done, but valuable lessons learned. :)

On a side note, a cow orker today used mv instead of cp when he decided to "borrow" some HTML::Mason code of mine. People started to wonder why our error reporting form didn't work (404 Not found). I suspected he had borrowed the code so I confronted him... "Did you by any chance type mv instead of cp?". He had the window still open and quickly browsed through the history... suddenly his face became red and quiet moaning was heard. "How much did you change?" - "Everything!"... Backups were available though. Hehe...

I went a bit OT... sorry....

    I didn't mean to sound offending. I actually read it with a smile. Still I wanted to point out that I don't see any reason to actually _blame_ tye. I thought the part about the insight into IRC would make this clear...

    BTW what is a cow orker? *grin* And how could he mv your files? Group writable? And once again the backup lesson learned :)

    Regards... Stefan
    you begin bashing the string with a +42 regexp of confusion

      And how could he mv your files? Group writable?
      To use a phrase I found on some newsgroup: That was a stupid thing to do as root! :)

[holli]: it's probably the autist in you. I am like that too, no fucks given about what others think about me
james28909 checks, yep... htere are no fucks to give
[james28909]: another thing i am sick of is hurting others feelings
[1nickt]: james28909 You lost me a bit when you said "show me evolution from intelligence to ignorance". I guess we would have to define the terms, but as I look around at my species and how we are destroying our habitat ...
[james28909]: seems like a person cant even have a belief without hurting someones feelings. i never said my way is the only way. i just said i have pretty good scientific evidence, and then asked for opposing side to present evidence
[james28909]: was downvoted and left without a reply. go figure
[holli]: but then you DO give a fuck
[1nickt]: I don;t think beliefs should be down-voted, just behaviours.
[james28909]: im not quite how to explain it any better nick. you evolved from ignorance to intelligence. not the other way. the universe evolves from gas coulds and debris into planets stars and galaxies ect. it doesnt happen any other way. hence it has ....
[james28909]: some kind of logic behind it
