Comment: FFS...all I have left is fsck'ing B&N... (Score 1) 443

I love books, don't get me wrong, but I love books if they are hardback, paperback, or epub.


Sadly, I could go into a local Borders and the people were knowledgeable, kind and generous with their time. They bent over backwards to help my wife find books and get them shipped to the house while she was on the mend after surgery.

I have lost many a day in a Borders, drinking tea and reading and it is a sad day when there is one less place to do this.

I named my last run of servers after the classical artists of the renaissance, as well as other noted artsits...Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, Michelangelo, Van Gogh....

And the first thing that the punk ass kids I work with could come up with was, "Hey its Teenage Mutant Ninja Servers! Heroes in a 1U server!"

Why do I even bother?!?
