Like I said before,
I presume he meant "I would like to know how to install FreeBSD on a laptop.
Would you have a how-to video?"
I wasn't making fun OF him but the possibility, the image of, that he really
meant "assemble a laptop" sounded funny, that's ALL. Nothing else!.
English is a foreign language for me one day. I am not a native english
speaker. When I was learning english during my 6 months of exchange student
in a Pendlenton high school in Indiana back in 1975, I knew people would make
fun of me. I EXPECTED that !. Among teenagers there is no politness. If you
say something that sounds funny to them, they will laugh at you in a split
second. No second thoughts about it. I had to accept my mistakes and laugh
about them too, otherwise I would go nuts. And their laughs caused me no
trauma at all.
Being a foreign student from Brasil in a 400 people town in those days was
almost like being from mars. I went to an elementry school where the students
were assembled to hear me talk about my country. And I sttod up and said:
"In Brasil we have lots of soccer championSHITS". All the kids broke into a
roaring laughter. I was a little embarassed at first. I didn't know what I
said wrong. As soon as someone told me what I said, I joined the kids.
I did not expect my microscopic comment to offend anyone. I sincerelly
apologize and I swear that will never ever post an out-of-freebsd-subject
I sure hope I can end this thread with this.
