I have not had so much fun reading any posts as I have been having
reading the replies to Shlomi Fish.
I am probably the oldest one on this list (am I? I am 59) so from a
different generation to you all. When I read Shlomi's intro I felt
uneasy, but even having come this far in my own personal development, I
was not going to say anything. I was brought up to be seen and not
heard. I have been around in women's groups and was one of a founding
members of a women's paper Bad Attitude (UK one) years ago. The name was
chosen because we wanted to be on the face of those who kept telling us
that we had a bad attitude when we could not take all the jokes and
abusive language and behaviour quietly. Even there I was the oldest and
not the most up front in my behaviour and attitude. But I really liked
to see that the younger women can speak up and are able to tell off and
boot out all those who are unable to learn better language and
behaviour. I am really proud of my daughters who are able to stand up
against that kind of thing. And I am proud of you all on this list. So
pleased to be one of you quietly in the background.
Can I just say one little thing at the end. I got an e-mail from my pv
installer's son who was helping pers father to install the system here a
couple of years ago. Per was interested in computers and we talked a lot
about Linux. I was using Suse at the time. I gave per a live cd. Per has
now installed a Suse Linux along pers Microsoft thingi. I am now telling
per about Ubuntu. Per is a web designer. This whole thing made me so
pleased. All my talk of Linux is worth it!
With best wishes to you all from very proud and pleased Imppu
