What do you do when everything works perfectly...

What if your fun time on the computer was getting things working...

Anyone have a challenge???

When things get boring try a new distro and learn.

Arch, Gentoo, and Slack should keep you pretty busy.

I've been wanting to try crux, but don't have an extra machine for it.
If I have some open time, I play Wolfenstein Enemy Territory.

Report bugs. Translate applications. Help users in the help forums. Write a book, plant a tree, procreate.
