Absolutely. It'd be terribly inconsiderate. :hides his .signature.

 Does anyone still run SCO? Thought they'd all died.


Yep.  Our billing system runs on it.  And apart from the occasional
problem compiling more modern software on it - am generally happy with it.

Great.  They keep sending me the 9i suite for Linux and I have just been

 Yeah... I'm on this mailing list called goats-fans, for fans of Goats:

Yeah.  I think I should cop more praise for being such a sweet, lovely

check out http://www.versiontracker.com/vt_mac_osx.html

 How many people here use OS X? Develop for it? (Even vaguely). Recommend
 any small-ish clued in lists to join? The omnigroup ones are too huge.
 If anyone's interested, I'll host the list if nothing's out there.

 so it's true is it? :) You're late by about 28 days, sorry.

I know (the news items in the RH frame 'microsoft send monkeys to Mars'

Yes, I'm using it (again :-) ), not developing for it though. Haven't found
any good lists, I hang out on the London Macintosh User Group lists which has
a few clueful people on it.

A dedicated OSX list might be a good idea.

2001-04-29 Thread Leon Brocard

Stuffed Camel

  1 whole camel, medium size
  1 whole lamb, large size
  20 whole chickens, medium size
  60 eggs
  12 kilos rice
  2 kilos pine nuts
  2 kilos almonds
  1 kilo pistachio nuts
  110 gallons water
  5 pounds black pepper
  Salt to taste

Skin, trim and clean camel (once you get over the hump), lamb 
and chicken. Boil until tender. Cook rice until fluffy. Fry nuts 
until brown and mix with rice. Hard boil eggs and peel. Stuff 
cooked chickens with hard boiled eggs and rice. Stuff the cooked 
lamb with stuffed chickens. Add more rice. Stuff the camel with 
the stuffed lamb and add rest of rice. Broil over large charcoal 
pit until brown. Spread any remaining rice on large tray and 
place camel on top of rice. Decorate with boiled eggs and nuts. 
Serves friendly crowd of 80-100.

Can *someone* please pick a date to go visit the camel?

Mouth-watering, eh?

I take it the tube strike's off then, since you no longer consider the
camel to be public transport?

whilst I appreciate you'll put up some feeble excuse such as 'no no .. the
signatures are generated at random'  this current revelation has opened
up a whole new side to you I didn't know existed.  Coupled with the news
in another of the weekend mails that the list moderator is a fairy, I
think I need a large G+T.

Here it is,

http://london.pm.org/pipermail/london.pm/ -- I sent a couple to seed it.

So I put in the final tweaks to get exim/mailman working
together. (Most of the credit for the setup is to Alex/veeg and jo.)

Whether it goes from dircon to london.pm.org is up to someone else,
this is really just to let you know it (the mailman system)'s werkin'.
And that there are other sources of penderelesque edification,
