Fedora Linux Issue and experience

Postby jpz » Tue Nov 29, 2005 2:42 am

8) Recently purchased this issue at a local Bookstor here in the sometimes disunited States. :wink: The install was easy (xept for a formatting screwup on my part). I was up and ecstatically running in less than an hour. This is by leaps and bound the easiest Linux install I have ever used. At first I was apprehensive but, DANG that was EEEAASSSYYYY. Just for haha's I plugged in my new usb flash drive and there it was, "All fired up and ready". This is TOP Shelf. I'm having too much fun.....................

Strangely enough, when I lived up north, my local newsagent put it on the top shelf too -- directly next to, er, 'adult art' magazines! I thought it was great, as it's probably the shelf that receives the most attention...

And that's when you were doing the discs Nelz -- what are they trying to say?

I've long thought it was no coincidence that "Linux Format" is an anagram of (women and children look away now!) "Tail 'n' Muf Rox".

See: Well drinks
I heard that when I was a kid. Also referred to Carnivals when you played the wheel there was a second wheel that said "Choice of stand" and all of those items were kept on the top shelf. In the US they have a whole rack for the pornography but, back then it was kept in a back room at most Tobacco shops. Booze you get at "After hours clubs" of course there was gambling and other shall I say "Items of interest". In those days the train still ran.........
