schestowitzI'm behind RMS on this oneOct 08 15:54
schestowitzHe didn't act too harshlyOct 08 15:54
schestowitzBut rapid Mac fanbois will distros his view as they see fitOct 08 15:55
schestowitzGood news though...Oct 08 15:59
schestowitzI'm becoming a godfather :-)Oct 08 15:59
schestowitz"God" as metaphorOct 08 16:00
schestowitz> Congratulations on becoming a Godfather. I am both an uncle and aOct 08 16:00
schestowitz> Godfather to my sister's son, Warren. Read the story at...Oct 08 16:00
schestowitzOh, that sure is a classic!Oct 08 16:00
schestowitz> Having a child of your own is a unique and wonderful feeling  that fillsOct 08 16:00
schestowitz> you with pride and awe. But before you become a father, I suggest youOct 08 16:00
schestowitz> get married first. Hahaha.Oct 08 16:00
schestowitzRushing into a marriage that may not succeed is not a smart idea these days, especially with ultra-feminist cultures where the husband can be milked for eternity. While I'm in my 20s I still see no need for marriage.Oct 08 16:00
qu1j0t3...Oct 08 16:18
qu1j0t3name one ultra feminist culture?!Oct 08 16:19
schestowitzhad a chat about it todayOct 08 16:25
schestowitzmore and more friends seem to attest to this experienceOct 08 16:25
schestowitzI'm pro gender equalityOct 08 16:25
schestowitzpart of my liberal identityOct 08 16:25
schestowitzbut sometimes I hear storiesOct 08 16:25
schestowitzabout femisnism gone to the extremeOct 08 16:25
schestowitzand the point where a guy who work all his life lose the house, the savings, everything... to the former wife who never workedOct 08 16:26
schestowitztoday at the poor while I was swmming there was this sort of party of divercsed peopleOct 08 16:26
schestowitzwhat we call here /:"working class snobs"Oct 08 16:26
schestowitzThey sort of partonised and mistreated the health clubs's staffOct 08 16:26
schestowitzand it was that stereotypical crowd there... about 15 of them... very full of themselvesOct 08 16:27
schestowitzThis has gotten quite serious, to the point wher my mate who's a professor won't marry a British lady... instead married a Croatian one and now a Spanish one with whom he has a kidOct 08 16:27
schestowitzThe sense of privilege and entitlement among *some* women makes them more scary than Spice Girls with Gurl Poa' Oct 08 16:28
schestowitz*PowaOct 08 16:28
qu1j0t3i am not sure why people blame this divorce business on feminismOct 08 16:28
qu1j0t3it sounds like bad law to meOct 08 16:28
schestowitzSo I am pressured to not be so adherent towards the use of equality by women and non-whites to paint themselves a victim and then cash in on guiltOct 08 16:29
qu1j0t3anyway, the word is practically useless nowOct 08 16:29
schestowitzqu1j0t3: rightOct 08 16:29
schestowitzthan againOct 08 16:29
qu1j0t3it's one of *those* words: activist, protester, ...Oct 08 16:29
schestowitzin the past women had fewer commitmentsOct 08 16:29
schestowitzSo the argumrnts don't stack upOct 08 16:29
schestowitzthese days kids are raised in nurseriesOct 08 16:29
schestowitzand in some ways feminism backfired in some ways, putting more burden on those who fought for it... that's how my friend Mike puts itOct 08 16:30
qu1j0t3schestowitz: I dunno, it seems a short-circuit wordOct 08 16:30
qu1j0t3schestowitz: they should be criticising the bad law, surelyOct 08 16:30
schestowitzqu1j0t3: that's just one hypothesis, I don't place that among feminismOct 08 16:30
qu1j0t3anyway you see how the argument is faultyOct 08 16:31
schestowitzqu1j0t3: it's not feminism that's the issue, I agreeOct 08 16:31
schestowitzBut...Oct 08 16:31
schestowitzanother thing you see is extreme materialismOct 08 16:31
qu1j0t3most people who critique feminism know little about itOct 08 16:31
schestowitzesp. injected into society through PR that targets women, IMHOOct 08 16:31
schestowitzPlayijng the role of comsumer and prpovider partOct 08 16:31
qu1j0t3well, yes. but again, a separate problem :)Oct 08 16:31
schestowitzit'a a real turnoff in couples, I found..Oct 08 16:32
qu1j0t3women's liberation/feminism introduced many good and and important lawsOct 08 16:32
qu1j0t3these are under constant attack from the right wingOct 08 16:32
schestowitzthey are?Oct 08 16:32
qu1j0t3people who complain about unfair divorces should attack the lawsOct 08 16:32

schestowitz"Its a shame, Ive been more than impressed with PCLinuxOS and in terms of operation, I havent had a distro that has required such little work since Ubuntu 8.04LTS. (Not counting the KDE learning curve) " 08 22:56
schestowitz"For old netbooks, Ive never seen the need to remove Peppermint. Served me very well. " Oct 08 22:56
schestowitz"It sort of surprised me since Ive been quite critical of KDE over the years, maybe it was a combination of bad distro choice and not willing to sift through the layers of options... KDE requires work to tame, but to be fair once it has been, its a very stable and functional DE. "Oct 08 22:57

schestowitzabeNd-orgToby, that's wonderful stuff, thanks. I assume you've just finished the design of a vector graphics (scalable) logo design. Josh is meanwhile working on the shop component of the site, which he has done over the past 2 weeks with my help. This should be ready to go live soon, after some improvements and nice visual additions like real photos of the shirts, background information, and other general improvements.Oct 08 23:40
