my computer is stable. much more stable than this world i think. i
brag about being lazy, so when i say something is the ultimate of lazy,
it is a compliment. whoever is running your computer is making you do
his work. please congratulate your system administrator for a job well
done for me.
my computer is stable and i can build gimp. i failed some in lazy for
this to happen, however.
ask your system administrator for the help. they have the permission
because they have the smarts for it, right?
all i did was admit that i have never done this.
