    @33mhz @doctorlinguist Ours was very simple. Wedding in our own parish, reception in the church hall. No DJ with a checklist. Just people being together and talking. And it didn't cost $4k. But was still a good time.

      @doctorlinguist I'm generally disgusted with the whole reception business (and don't get me started on the practice of throwing undergarments). But this was actually fun and a good time. @33mhz

        Wedding today, did the requisite dancing as if nobody's watching. I'm sure no one was, and my exploits won't appear anywhere. I"m sure I'll be sore tomorrow

          @jmergy Yeah. I could never go back to rpm. We have some notoriously un-updated CentOS machines at work. I couldn't even install a library without it threatening to update a truckload of libraries.

            @jmergy Tried RH once. I remember trying to install a pkg and it popped up an error that a dependent pkg was missing. So I cancelled and installed that other pkg. You can guess the rest. I eventually gave up and installed ALL packages!

              @jmergy 0xmf I remember back in the 90s, checking the RedHat website and seeing ads for red hats. Then I checked debian.org and saw security advisories (and still do). So I went with Debian.

                @mlv since when have computers been for "fun"? ;P // @0xmf @tomcat

                  @0xmf One common undertone with the //Build keynote was that it's for businesses. There was a lot about companies and making money (no, nothing wrong with that). However, it's almost as if they don't think people use computers just for fun. @tomcat

                    @0xmf What if what you do has nothing to do with your employers?

                        @braincutlery Guys... you see that me-shaped outline in that wall over there? Yeah... @mcdemarco @awanicka

                          @0xmf What impressed me was they didn't have a "We're the only platform that matters." attitude, like those fruits in Cupertino @awanicka

                            @awanicka Watching the //build keynote has really changed my opinion of Microsoft. I still like having a UNIX shell on my computer, but I could see myself using Windows 10 (possibly mobile, definitely desktop in some environment (probably virtual)) @0xmf

                                @awanicka Ugh. Verb, noun, AND interjection.

                                  @jnm Actually you're right. It's not a verb, it's an interjection.

                                    I know in English, any word can be verbed. But is it possible to unverb "hashtag"?

                                      @schmidt_fu The original (as far as I can tell) is: "I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car".

                                        @0xmf Yeah! I'm watching it now. As a long time anti-MS-er, this is definitely shaking my "faith" Metric: # of mentions of "Linux" in Build vs Apple's WWDC.
