    I guess that LiveCD will have to wait a while. I have a compression problem. I need to fit 3.4GB on a 700MB CD, but SquashFS only took it down to 1.2GB. Would casper be able to read a squashfs within a tar.gz (or tar.bz2, or .gz, or...)?

    Ykyagw when other classmates write notes in the "program" section of your calculators, but you actually write the programs.

    YKYAGW you and some classmates rename public folders on the fileserver as a very crude form of chat.

    Isn't it easier to make a LiveDVD, then? You can have a working environment quicker and work out the size from there, together with the inevitable ironing out of bugs. The two operations are largely connected anyhow.

    I'd rather not be limited to DVD releases, but I guess I'll have to if there's no other way. In the mean time, I have permission to burn a DVD to see if it works.

    I have to laugh at C, I once did that to my computer teacher with a simple autoexec.bat file that remapped the keyboard using escape codes, it was indeed a priceless experience

    and my own additions, again from personal experience (sorry if any of these are repeated but I could only make it through 20 pages before I had to reply to one):

    You replace your (cheap/old) car stereo system with your old 5.1 computer speaker system, complete with custom wired power inverter.

    -Better yet if you strip down a motherboard and build your own mp3 player from old but useful hardware

    You're the one your family calls when the computer stops working.

    -You have remote access to all your families computers

    -You've ever walked your family through burning, booting and starting SSH from a live CD.

    Your next cell phone purchase is strongly dependent on hackability.

    You throw a tantrum when your network latency begins messing with your traffic on the verge of 20ms lag every nth ping!

    You've ever wanted to connect more USB flash drives than you have ports on your computer including your hubs.

    -You've ever tried to LVM or ZFS those multiple USB flash drives. LOL

    You've taken a screenshot of your desktop with as many mplayer instances you could fit on a 4x1 compiz enabled desktop in expo mode and actually watched them like that for a while to see the performance (sad but true, after about 15 they started skipping when from the same drive but got about 40 to run )

    Here's a personal one for the Slackware comment:

    If you've ever spent an entire evening installing Linux from more than floppy disks.

    A buddy and me did this from close to 90 back in the early slackware days, followed by Major BBS

    I doubt it, but even if you could, it wouldn't do you much good. Compressed data is notoriously hard to... compress.
