    Ubuntu barks at my cats

    If you have cats and a computer you know what cats do, they seem to like walking on the keyboard.
    Funny things happen, like they seem to be able to bring up the word search function and other stuff like that.
    Well, with Karmic Koala what happens now is the cats get barked at, they walk on the keyboard and Ubuntu goes 'roof' 'roof' 'roof'.

    I have seen a cat detector program for MS that detects 'cats on keyboard' it ignores multiple keys pressed at once assuming a cat crossing.

    Is this Ubuntu's cat detector?
    If not, it should be, it's pretty funny!

    ROFL. I have a little perl script which blocks my keyboard. Although my cats have learned not to walk all over my keyboard..

    For some odd reason, the 1st thing I thought of was 'Lord Flashhart- Woof!'

    That video is hilarious! I've been meaning to watch some Blackadder for a while now, all the clips I've seen have been awesome.

    I don't have a keyboard drawer - even Oldere Skool
    But then, I don't have a cat either.

    I have a cunning plan, M'lord - a plan so cunning you could pin a tail on it and call it a weasel!
