Re: new security patches

flaming CIA and NSA.. they've no idea what they've done to the world.

And can we even trust the security patches these days? - They're probably full of new bugs designed by the FEDs to let them in now the old vulnerabilities have been made public!

It does my head in.. not that i ever install the updates anyway.. but even so.. i get driven mad hearing about it all..

I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Yes it is if you want to stay in tune with the rest of the real world.

*nix is for the delusional who like to think that they can keep up (except on a RPi of course)

No, it's not, its for those users who do not need a point and click interface to make things work, as they have the common sense and ability to read man pages when needed and aren't afraid of the CLI.
