It was just a mean spirited and unwarranted attack.  It would have been nice 
if you'd actually included the attribution to the person who wrote it.  
Rashkae and I have both been known to be hard on you, but I don't think 
either of us have attacked you out of the blue like that.

No, he says he has a "question", not a problem.  And his question is "how, 
technically, is a splash screen [I think] displayed".  To which I think the 
answer Florian gave: "using the Linux kernel's frame buffer API" is the best 
response we can provide at the moment.
