Okay Miks Thompson you are rights I will has to makes some changes to the GH-EULAs so that you freeBSDs peoples can go back to the Berkleys and do your sit ins and smoke pot and do the protests and do riots thats what the B is BSds is all aobut after alls you are just like the hippy mac users and the linus longhairs you are like a crossbreed that got crossbreeded and is a mutt I saw a dog once that was a strange dogs it had a really big heads and a little weiner dog body and it was funny to look at just like freeBSDs. Also even though you are a bad freebsds person and you dont know how smarts bill Gates is and Micorsoft at least its good to know that you know all abou the canadians. Oh can-a-da, something something something. I think the song is about how they like to build igloos and also to go climb a very high mountain with snows on it and then take a canoe ride and go watch the hockeys boy talk about primitives oh boy.

Well after I gots over the initial shocks of such crude and vulgars languages (oh my he used some bad words oh man you should have heard it oh no never mind I dont want you to hears it its bad for you) I decideds to right back to him after alls he said PLEASE EMAIL ME in all capital letters and that means I has to rights back oh yes.
Hello Davids you have a nice contrys up there in canadas did you live in the part where the snow melts sometime I knows a people from canadas they live in arizona now because its not dark their for 10 and a half months. Do you know Alanis Morizetty she lives from canada and sings songs I like her also Gordons Lightfeet I think they should do a duet and then maybe go out on a date tell them hi for me. Oh also I have this threoy have you every seen the Late shows with David Lettersman? Its pretty good I dont know if you can see it in canadas because its all in english not parisian and also you might not have a tvs up there but if you can go see it acrossed the border you should sometime its got a guy Paul Shaver who is a canadians and here is my theory that Paul Shavers is really in controls of CBS and runs all the shows hes very smart you know I think he might be almost as powerfuls as bill Gates but not in computers in tvs he owns and controls all the tvs but no one knows Its a conspiracies and is very secret. Okay bye now use windows and make it everywheres sometimes. Love, Gerald

Date: Mon, 16 Aug 1999 14:54:46 -0700 It's been a long time since I've read a web site that's as funny^H^H^H^H^Hinformative as yours. I'm very aware of how difficult it is to write like a complete idiot^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^Hsuch informative prose and yet manage to be so convincing^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^Heducational. Being Canadian, it saddens me to see fellow Canadians with no sense of humour^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^Hrespect for Micorsoft enthusiasts. Oh well, I get a huge laugh^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^Hlots of insight from your site, so keep up the good work. Too bad i have to use linus at work because thats what my job requires i use Micorsoft at home and like playing Duke Nukem its a DOS game and i really like it i dont have Space Cadets yet.

Now heres a REAL gem that mades me real proud.
From: Martin Bogelund mbogelund@for[something]um.dk To: email@example.com Subject: Thank you! Date: Fri, 14 May 1999 13:55:35 +0200 I used to use Linux, but then I came across your homepage (http://www.freeyellow.com/members7/geraldholmes/index.html) and I read it, even though the EULA was there, because my long hair got into my eyes and prevented me from reading properly, and I was to stupid to understand what I was reading since I was using Linux. But 2 weeks after reading your homepage I understood it, and I realized that I was on the wrong path with Linux. Nobody would hire me because I had long hair, and when people considered hiring me, they asked if I had any computer experience, and then I answered "yes, I use Linux" and then they kicked me out and sued me... Then I got a haircut and practiced lying about my Linux using, telling that I used Windows. And the 29th time I told that story, it worked and I got a job were we are using Windows. I become smarter each day because I use Windows! Windows also cured my bad breath and made my runaway cat come back! If I add the money for the time I wasted on getting, installing, and learning Linux, and the money i didn't earn because I didn't get jobs due to my long hair and Linux using, I find that Linux owes me $8,000,000,000,639.48! So one of these days I will ask Bill Gates to help me sue Linux, because his lawyers are real good, and he is the greatest guy on earth! All this thanks to you, Gerald Holmes! Thank you! Regards, Martin PS please don't sue me because of the EULA thing, I'm a good Windows-user now!
