Hi, I am a Latvian computer virus, but because of poor technology in my country, unfortunately I am not able do any harm to your computer.
Please be so kind to delete one of your important files yourself and then forward me to other users.

I was clueless as well. But 8.0 and 8.1 were very scary. Now, 8.2 was a good release. BTW, I am currently teaching 8th grade and high school Algebra.

But my hands won't release the bow
I've been pulling back on it so long
I've forgotten how to let it go
And I know I have the means
But my will is gone
And I fear I won't succeed so I'm holding on

Oh, I first HEARD about linux in a Dilbert cartoon. Dil was listening to his mother rant how she was going to email Bill Gates from her Linux box. I was testing OS/2 3.0 at the time and was curious what Linux was. Took me another year to look into it. I used unix on the SU campus and if I had known what it was I would have tried it sooner.
