Thought some of you might get a kick out of this.
We (i.e., BSDi) were at ApacheCon in London Tuesday/Wednesday of this week.
The keynote speaker on Tuesday night was Douglas Adams.
I wasn't in the auditorium to witness it myself, but apparently he stopped
in mid-sentence part way through his presentation, and in somewhat
incredulous tones said
Er, are people wearing *horns* in here?
which prompted much laughter from the conference goers.
I'm just kicking myself that I didn't have the presence of mind to hand him
a pair before he started. . .
Internet connection, $19.95 a month. Computer, $799.95. Modem, $149.95.
Telephone line, $24.95 a month. Software, free. USENET transmission,
hundreds if not thousands of dollars. Thinking before posting, priceless.
Somethings in life you can't buy. For everything else, there's MasterCard.
