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 comment again. I sure hope I can end this thread with this. thanks, -- Mario Lobo Segurança de Redes - Desenvolvimento e Análise IPAD - Instituto de Pesquisa e Apoio ao Desenvolvimento Tecnológico e Científico _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
