Just an observation:
WorldPay's orderform lets you select
your country from a list...
they actually list Afghanistan ;-)
how on earth do you deliver there?
glue it to a cruise missile? ;-)))

Szisser, awaiting my package...

Did you know that the pentagon had quickly drawn plans for a cruise-missile strike, but the white house rejected it as "shooting from the hip?"  ;)

Although, If anybody DOES find a way to get stuff to af, I'd be interested.  :)

I know, it's off topic and doesn't belong here, but
this is hilarious and it's a 'general' forum, so what the heck...
Mandrake User? Bored? Like to know what people think about
your OS? Here's a review(?). It's worth a read!!!
I nearly fell of my chair laughing...

I read that.  It really isn't worth a read.

Adequacy.org is news for "grown ups who don't know what they're talking about."

Previous versions of Linux were called Slack Ware and Red Hat?  Umm... No.

It's pretty obvious that this particular "news" outlet isn't one dedicated to taking the time to study what they're reporting on.
On the other hand, I don't particularly like mandrake. ;)

Oh.

That would explain adequacy.org, then.  ;)

Can you tell I'm not a regular there?  :D
