Well, I hope you have better luck with Dead Rat, err, Red Hat, then I've had. I've tried several versions, found them all bloated, slow, and buggy.

Personally, Mandrake is my favorite, but I'm really starting to like SuSE...

Good luck! Enjoy your freedom from Microsoft's evil tryanny!

Oh, the www.linuxiso.org forum's are an execellent source of helpfull information! It is to Linux what CDRLabs is to burning!
Soon to be proud user of Mandrake 10 (again!). SuSE 9 sucks!

Action Jackson: What course would a jack of all trades teach? :) Usually courses are specific, unless it's a 100-level course, which can be broad, but they still focus on a particular topic...like geography.


I guess I would be a good substitute teacher. Not an expert in any one area, but able to cover a broad range of topics. :wink:

I've never used Red Hat, but I'm thinking of trying it soon. I've used Mandrake a little, and I like it, too.

Looking back at my college years, I never had a substitute teacher. In high school and elementary school, yes, subs were present, but I never encountered one in college. If a professor couldn't come to class one day, he just cancelled it. The students loved it, and rightly so. :D

When you mentioned subs, I thought of adjunct profs, not sure why, but they sprung into my head. I bet we have a few adjunct professors at CDRLabs University, that is, profs that teach at CDRLabsU and another university (or forum). As a matter of fact, I believe we are in good standing with CDFreaks; we exchange professors with them and vice versa. :)

Action Jackson: Would you feel more comfortable teaching freshmen or seniors?
No, I like women.

I just noticed this post 3 months later. That was some straight funny stuff.

It is right not to include any courses taught by me. All those courses are undergrad, mine would certainly be an advanced study. And why was Ian not teaching "U.S. History 282 - Culture Club."

Like you said all those courses are undergrad and the CC is an advanced class, the real question is why isn't "U.S. History 105 - Wham" also taught by Ian listed.

"U.S. History 105 - Wham"


Strange that both groups mentioned were British....

True, but they permeated the culture of America so thoroughly that it can be said that their success was both by America and in America.

Thus becoming a piece of American history.

:-? That's a bit of non sequitur and should probably be transliterated as "itada kimasu" (not that there is truly a right and wrong way to transliterate), but in the spirit it was intended, and after some suitable time has elapsed:

Gotisou sama desita! :D

Either that or we Americans just consider Britain to be America's backward 14'th colony. :wink: :)
