Ric, I agree with you to do basic research first, but the language too
should be sober to communicate, IMHO. I am not saying that Liam or
anyone is taking someone home, but IMO, the way of communicating he
uses here is better and even I was searching at Google if PCBSD offers
a live cd or not which Liam himself didn't say since it is the basic
thing I can do myself. Not criticizing you, but IMHO, if we use sober
language, humanity flourishes more - never downgraded, that's all.
