Seriously, the stubby black paws of Linux welcome you. :p
January 24, 2004 2:40 PM
Wonderful to see you've joined the project! I'm Linux user #284445. Welcome aboard.
January 24, 2004 3:13 PM
Well, if you punch it in on a phone, you can spell 'fiends.' =)
January 24, 2004 3:14 PM
Hey, I can make something out of those numbers. Almost. If you switch the 6 for an 8, it's all the digits of my home phone number! Only mixed up!
January 24, 2004 3:24 PM
Since you have one of those nifty little "please enter this code to post" thingies on the comments, I think you should do a geeky thing like make the code that needs to be entered the same number as your Linux # there. *Snickers*
January 24, 2004 3:43 PM
I'm one of those geeks who sees patterns well and umm...
Every other number is a 3.
Also, if you look at it just right you'll see the pattern:
3+3=6 (where 4 is the plus)
4+3=7 (where 36 is the plus)
Yea.. geek needs to be tattooed on my forehead for my own and other's safety.

"die on 7" on a phone :P
I haven't registered as a Linux user... I use Windows on my desktop *ducks and runs* and FreeBSD on my servers.
January 24, 2004 4:32 PM
Congrats... I'm registered Windows user number 13456238042.... :-))

Well hey, I've been using Linux for my web server for ages and I don't have a number. They gonna give me a retroactive one so I don't look like a total newbie? I thought not. Pshaw on their user numbering scheme. Everyone knows it's just a step on road to armageddon and that soon enough we'll all have Microsoft chips implanted in our asses and our social security numbers tattooed on our ears.
BTW, Linux on the server, OS X on the desktops.

Shouldn't the title of this message be "Penguins marching"? [Grins and heads for cover]

"It is VERY hard to get any real idea of the size of the Linux community.
In a sense, it is because we want it that way: we do NOT want anything like centralized control, and that means that we don't want anyone to say authoritatively how many people we are, either."
But, that statement is counter to what the site is doing, isn't it?
Do you, or do you not want an anyone to say how many you are?
Illogical. And now my head must explode.

"I don't care to belong to any club that will accept me as a member" Groucho Marx. (The Groucho Letters).
A good quote, I used it as a guideline for improving myself. I want to bring myself to a stage where I would join a club that accepted me as a member.

Thanks for the reminder; I had to go update my info with the site. Some of my machine specs had changed since the last time I updated it. And I'm not even counting the work machines I have, like the dual-Xeon workstation with twin 20" LCD displays, or the Pentium 4 laptop...I figure that's my employer's business.

User number 261515 welcomes you to the List of the Registered. I have been registered since shortly after I first installed Debian 2.2 on my system in 2002; I am now LFS registered user number 3634.
Incidentally, I do remember CP/M, though not very well, as I haven't seen it since about 1989. I do remember playing a Star Trek game that was written for CP/M, where one merely fought Klingons. (Of course, being nine years old at the time, I thought that it was one of the most wonderful games in existance.)
Let us know, Wil, when you'll next be on TV (other than the TNG reruns)...

Fun with numbers at IMDB:
IMDB Title no. 0343637 is "Erotikes apistes". Is Wil doing any erotic films we should know about?
(The closest of Wil's films, by the way, are Neverland, 0349880, and Book of Days, 0346639; and the TV series Teen Titans is only 323 away at 0343314.)
Oh yeah--I'm no. 212203. Way ahead of you, Willie.

Bah, you're all newbies.

Well, the thing that comes immediately to mind on seeing those digits is:
343 = 7*7*7
637 = 7*7*13
That's a lot of 7s.
