    Silly pleasures

    This morning I visited a high street shop where an active Windows Surface was on show. Well, I had a play on it and then opened Internet Explorer, set it to Ubuntu.com and walked away. Very silly I know and not likely to bring new users to Ubuntu. However it made me smile

    Door hinge rhymes with Orange, so it's quite appropriate.

    I can't help laughing when I see BSODs on atms and stuff.
    Whoever came up with the phrase "There is no such thing as a stupid question" obviously never had the internet.

    Dude, MLP is my JAM.

    Also kinda wrap myself in some sort of 'blanket cocoon' from time to time, if that makes any sense. Found it pretty funny when a few of my IRL friends did that same thing too.

    I like walking into Apple stores and open browsers with articles about how quickly Mac's got hacked into at pwn2own

    Lol, thread is "Silly pleasures", people start talking about MLP FIM.
    I put a Rainbow dash sticker next to my other system stickers to make my machine run 20% cooler.

    And why not. I just felt in the mood to do something silly yesterday while waiting for a friend and it reminded me of the value of doing silly stuff.

    It is said for example that one of the ways to avoid cabin fever if you work from home a lot is to go into important conference calls naked with your underpants on your head. Tip: If you do that, it works better without a webcam.

    It would be quite funny if the web cam accidentally turned on
