many pidgeons will die before the curmudgeons change the way they write
their mail.

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.
