I'm in on the Spaceship but off potatoes because of the carbs. And can we
modify that to "reasonable honest communication" please? "No, you're not
fat", "This is delicious", "No, I don't think you're mother is insane." all
have their rightful place in a peaceful community!
And I got my Christmas wish when UPS delivered my very own RS/6000!
Happiness is being root on your very own 'nix box!
Merry Solstice Season everybody!

100 foot tall mashed potato sculptures representing the common roots to
all belief systems is my holiday wish.
That, and a really neat spaceship.
Seriously though, I think the best part about "happy holidays" is the
Happy. Spread Happy wherever you go. Make it the great plague of the
new age. But plaguey in a... good way. Not the bad, everybody is
afraid of it and dies from it sort of way.. that's not happy... not
really. amusing in monty python flics, but not in real life.. no.
ps.. I'm all for honest communication too.. That kicks patooti!
