What's Your Debian Package Name?
It's a "What's your name?" page for the techno-techno set! Find out what your Debian package name is, and you can put it on your home page or blog or journal and shit. And everyone will love you! -- Mr. Bad

Laptop too big? Can't get Linux to run on your Palm Pilot? How would you like a fully working Linux system you can wear on your belt? -- Baron Earl

World-Famous Linux Nest to Close (Sadly)
For the past three-odd years, WAN/LAN consultant Richard Couture has operated the CoffeeNet, a 100% Linux-based Internet cafe, at 744 Harrison near Third Street, San Francisco. Today is its last day of operation at the current location. (If you want to visit, do so before today's 2 PM closing time.) -- 'Tricky' Rick Moen

To All My Friends!
Hey, so you know those dorky-ass instant messenger programs like AIM and ICQ and stuff? And how dumb they are? You know? Well, OK, they're only kinda dumb. OK, I use them a lot. THERE, I SAID IT. -- Mr. Bad

Tom's Rootboot is Cool
Hey, so, what kind of fun is Linux anymore? Like, it's got GNOME, it's got KDE, it's got flaks and marketing d00ds and evangelists and all that shit. Seems like it's time to move on, right? Well, maybe not. Like Feynman said, there's always room at the bottom. -- Mr. Bad

Unholy Abomination Uses Sexual Stratagems To Compete With Humans
GAAAAAH! I _TOLD_ YOU! I told EVERYONE that this Beowulf clusterfuck computing had gone TOO FAR! But nobody listened, and now these gooshy, group-grope computers have developed s00per-hUman intelligence with their sexy, disgusting genetic programming ways! You should have listened to me! -- Mr. Bad

Trinux - Bad Hacker Linux! BAD!
Wow! I've talked before about bad Linux distributions, but Trinux might take the CAKE. It's the VERY BAD LINUX for VERY BAD HACKER PEOPLE. Beaujolais to that! -- Mr. Bad

1999-06-16

*BSD: Weirder than Linux?
I'm starting to waver. Are the BSDs -- FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD -- potentially filled with MORE BAD CRAZINESS than even Linux? Could such an OS possible EXIST? If it could, you'd find out on Daemon News. -- Mr. Bad

Crazy-Ass German Linux Distribution... with GUITAR
Hey! I always say that S.u.S.E. is the default weird Linux distribution, because it's got GERMAN CRAZINESS built into every CD. But now I'm not sure: MANDRAKE may be the new way to go! -- Mr. Bad

1999-05-30

More Sick Clustering Bastards
MOSIX is the hot new thing for cluster-building perverts. It's, like, a way to make a cluster that's even more biological and incestuous and juicy and disgusting than the old ways. There's lots of gross stuff that MOSIX does. Beaujolais! -- Mr. Bad

1999-05-15

Beowulf Underground Subverts Decent Way of Life
The Beowulf Underground is an evil subversive group bent on destroying everything we hold dear and sacred as computerists. Instead of nice, compartmentalized machines that send terse and appropriate messages over thin wires, they want to have big MONGOLIAN CLUSTERFUCK computers with Aqualube and Free Love and Open Source and gooey money shots of data splurting EVERYWHERE. To them I say, Beaujolais! -- Mr. Bad

Linux RIOT!!!!
OK, it's been completely documented that all Linux users are BAD PEOPLE. But now there's (highly unreliable) reports that Linux users are RIOTING IN THE STREETS. Goddamn, who do they think they are, BUDDHIST MONKS or something? -- Fuckhead

Linux, You Can Drive My Car
So, I give German Linux advocates a lot of flak, since they are almost by definition the weirdest users of Linux ever. They do all the freaky Linux dances! But I gotta say that this research group at the University of Parma in Italy has them beat by a long shot. I mean, there's a world of difference between using Linux to play MP3s on your car stereo and USING LINUX TO DRIVE THE CAR. -- Mr. Bad

LinuxWorld Turns to Experienced Pigdog Journalist to Ensure TOTAL COVERAGE
Let's say you're the editor of LinuxWorld and you want to make sure that you get the HIGHEST QUALITY coverage of your fancy Weird Linux event LinuxWorld Sexpo. Who are you going to call to make sure you get TOTAL COVERAGE?! The answer is clear, my friend: a man with the proven track record at a prestigious online journalism outlet, of course. That's why the editors chose NICK-O MOFFITT to give the detailed journalism to their coverage. Damn straight! -- Mr. Bad

Pigdog Journal SCOOPS the Big Boys
Well, I'm not usually one to toot our own horn, but I have to crow about this: our coverage of the LinuxBierWanderung beats all the FAT, LAZY BIG DINOSAURS by a mile! Can you say, "scoop"? How about, "Ooh, that HURTS?" -- Mr. Bad

Linux + Beer = Bad Craziness
Electric Lichen is planning the Linuxbierwanderung, a WEEK-LONG Linux-and-Beer hiking extravaganza in the hills of Bavaria. The plan: walk and hack Linux all day, drink big beer in the beer halls all night! -- Mr. Bad

German Linux Users Plan dada Beowulf Insane-a-thon
Man, I love German Linux users! They are sweaty, lolling-tongued madmen! Here in America, Linux advocates are busy doing boring crap like trying to get The Man to accept Linux. Meanwhile, the Germans are doing shit-crazy things like building the world's largest computer cluster on national TV! -- Mr. Bad

1998-11-03

KMFMS Is Crazy
So, KMFMS stands for, uh, Kein Mitleid Fuhr MicroSoft, whatever the hell that means. They got the artist who does those cool brutal album covers for KMFDM to do a design for Linux. It's horrible and bizarre. And you can wear it as a T-Shirt! -- Flesh
