    Hey man, you have too many computers to take care of. I can fix that for you, by offering you to hand an arbitrary number of them over to me. I won't charge you for it. What do you say?

    Well go buy another hd. They are so cheap now, $1/GB. You can dual boot between the distros.

    That would truly be a great idea, wouldn't it? Unfortunately, I don't have any money at all, or in other words: I'm totally broke. Buying more hard drive space is the first thing I'm going to do when pay day comes.
    Dual booting isn't such a great idea though, in my opinion. I'd rather like the idea of having one system that I can customize beyond recognition. Or even better, customize without loosing recognition. That's really my philosophy; every time I make a change, I try to keep it as consistent with the current system as possible.
    I could make an exception for the Hurd, though. I'm really excited about it.

    I prefer to actually do projects then surf web at work. I just get bored with that sometimes and there is nothing like given a project that you know completely nothing about I guess I just like the challenge and learning something new.

    when i first started working there as a student i thought it was great, doing nothing and getting paid - but your right, i hate not doing something, and after awhile there are so many websites you can look at I would be bored stiff, i started looking into other peoples jobs and what they were doing ... before long i knew a little of everything and alot of some things... course none of that taught me how to type...

    I have found that finding myself a project is really easy. There's always some small (and sometimes big) middle-layer utility that needs to be written.
