    "The first and most effective measure you can take to secure your computers is to immediately remove all your Microsoft products and never install them again."

    Eric Raymond, author of The Art of Unix Programming, in The Boston Globe, Aug 27, 2003

    "Half the guys on your fireteam are llamas, total smacktards who couldn't hit the side of a barn with a BFG, much less a standard assault rifle. And the other half committed so many TKs they might as well have been fighting on the other side."

    Hiawatha Bray, on computer-game terminology, in The Boston Globe, Sept 10, 2003
