Seen in a Sig

Filed under
Other

I frequently chuckle at the sigs I see in peoples' posts and emails. My friends and I send 'em back and forth to enjoy as we run across them. Seeing another today gave me the idea to start a thread here and save some for posterity. So, if you see a cool, funny, or profound signature, please contribute.

I'll start off with the one I saw today:

1f u c4n r34d th1s u r34lly n33d t0 g37 l41d.

seen in a post

Saw this over at Beranger's new blog (or whatever it is):

which kinda ties into my Words I'm sick of hearing.

It's "whatever whatever means"...

...but merely a tiny tool (Tumblr).

Normally, I'm only on Twitter: http://twitter.com/beranger_v4/

This is because Facebook would make me waste too much of my time.

funny sig

Me so geeky! Me hack you long time!

re: funny sig

Do you email your mother with that sig?

re: funny sig

lolol No way! Big Grin

new sig seen

Well, it was new to me and I got a little chuckle:

Quote:

- Failure is not an option. It's bundled with your software.

Kinda ironic it was seen on the gentoo forum (oh SHOCK! - problems updating in gentoo? </sarcasm>), in one of veteran poster dcoats' posts.

pretty cute sig

Seen on the gentoo forums:

< bmg505> I think the first line in reiserfsck is

Social Commentary, anyone?

/. comment in response to release of Kubuntu:

News out now about a special windows license: Wubuntu (ancient african word meaning: blue screens for everyone). Wubuntu will use the upcoming Qt toolkit for Windows. Further down the road: Macuntu, OS2untu (pronounced: ozuntu). I can't wait. Gotta go now, strange beeps from my Nokia 7610. Guess Symbiuntu 0.01a is giving up.

Should be a sig

Who uses gentoo?
People who know what they want and idiots who think that having a three-lines $CFLAGS and $LDFLAGS and recompiling everything from sources or using overpatched kernel sources speed-up anything significantly.

Brief History Of Linux (#20)
Linux is born

Linus' superhuman programming talent produced, within a year, a full
operating system that rivaled Minix. The first official announcement on
comp.os.minix came October 5th, in which Linus wrote these famous words:

Do you pine for the nice days of minix-1.1, when men were men and wrote
their own device drivers? Do you want to cut your teeth on an operating
system that will achieve world domination within 15 years? Want to get
rich quick by the end of the century by taking money from hordes of
venture capitalists and clueless Wall Street suits? Need to get even
with Bill Gates but don't know what to do except throw cream pies at
him? Then this post might just be for you Smile

Linux (which was known as "Lindows", "Freax", and "Billsux" for short
periods in 1991) hit the bigtime on January 5, 1992 (exactly one year
after Linus wasn't hit by a bus) when version 0.12 was released under the
GNU GPL. Linus called his creation a "better Minix than Minix"; the famous
Linus vs. Tanenbaum flamewar erupted soon thereafter on January 29th and
injured several Usenet bystanders.

Latest Patches and Latest Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt/Fear-mongering Tactics Against "Linux"

  • Security updates for Friday

    Security updates have been issued by Debian (drupal7), Fedora (dotnet3.1), Gentoo (zabbix), openSUSE (ImageMagick and python-autobahn), and SUSE (hawk2 and wavpack).

  • DreamBus Botnet Targets Linux Systems

    Zscaler's ThreatLabz research team is tracking a new botnet dubbed DreamBus that's installing the XMRig cryptominer on powerful enterprise-class Linux and Unix systems with the goal of using their computing power to mine monero.

  • Hazardous fresh malware marks unpatched Linux machines [Ed: Linux may be patched; the problem is not Linux at all and it is dishonest to blame this on Linux]

    Security investigators files report on a fresh malware that marks inadequately configured computer desktops to wrap them into a botnet, that can subsequently be utilized for scandalous objectives or any violations. As per the reports of the Check Point Research (a.k.a CPR), the malware type, called FreakOut, precisely preys Linux embedded machines that operate unpatched editions of specific application on desktop.

  • More OpenGL Threading Improvements Land For Mesa 21.1 - Phoronix

    Even in 2021 longtime open-source AMD Mesa driver developer Marek Olšák isn't done optimizing OpenGL for delivering the best possible performance with the Radeon graphics driver. Marek's latest work includes more OpenGL threading enhancements and other work seemingly targeted at SPECViewPerf workloads. Marek has spent the past several weeks working to remove the last OpenGL threading synchronization stalls that happen with SPECViewPerf 13. As part of this latest pull request he added support to glthread for executing display lists asynchronously. Plus there are some other OpenGL code improvements too.

  • More Intel Graphics Work In Linux 5.12: Gen7 Improvements, Faster Suspend/Resume

    New feature material for Linux 5.12 continues getting ready ahead of the merge window opening in February to formally kick off the cycle. On top of the prior Intel graphics driver improvements queued up in recent weeks to DRM-Next, another batch of Intel updates were sent out this week.

  • Zink OpenGL On Vulkan Now Supports OpenGL 4.2 With Mesa 21.1

    Going back to last summer there have been patches experimentally taking Zink as far as OpenGL 4.6 albeit it's been a lengthy process getting all of the relevant patches upstreamed. Additionally, some patches have required reworking or proper adjustments after going through the conformance test suite to ensure they are up to scratch for merging. Thanks to that ongoing effort by Mike Blumenkrantz working under contract for Valve and the work by Collabora developers, it was a quick jump this month from seeing OpenGL 4.1 to OpenGL 4.2 in mainline.

    With the Zink OpenGL-on-Vulkan implementation within Mesa on a nice upward trajectory with most recently now having the backing of a Valve contract developer and a focus on getting the backlog of patches to this Gallium3D code upstreamed, here are some fresh benchmarks looking at where the performance currently stands when using Zink atop the RADV Vulkan driver compared to using the native RadeonSI driver with this round of testing from a Radeon RX 5700 XT graphics card.
