A friend who I recently converted from Windows to Ubuntu, logged into AIM last night:



Friend: usblp0: on fire
Jdong: Lol, buggy printer drivers :)
Jdong: It's a humorous catch-all when the USB printer driver doesn't understand the printer
Friend: No, you don't get it.
Friend: It's actually _ON FIRE_


He then sent me a picture.... His printer filled the room with smoke. He was amazed, and commented "Even Windows can't function as a smoke detector"! :D

Must see this picture :)

How the HECK did the fire start? It can't be because of Ubuntu right?

Linux likes to hurt people. It wanted to eat this Linux user. You can't trust these skeevy developers and their open source agendas. LINUX KILLS. </Microsoft>

I'll try to get my friend to send it again... I've lost that picture. But it was an amazing site....



As to the cause, it's certainly not Linux. It was one of the cheap free printers that come with store-bought systems.

Lol .

Last time I created mayhem -a lot of it- was about 9months ago in a Hardware course. I lit Monitors on fire, Hard drives, Power regulators... boy was that awsome. I still could not beat my best friend, he started unpluggin s#!@7 and by the time we noticed he produced a freaking blackout in our room lol [not that the teacher ever knew it was us :roll: ]

Sounds like he/she needs some Windows to let that smoke out.


I hope this doesn't scare thine friend away.
