Precisely. My use of metaphor might be difficult from a technical standpoint, but it will make for a stimulating challenge to anyone willing to create a visual analysis back-end for ghetto booties, sugar apples, badonkadonks, whale tails, laffy taffy, and backyard cheddarstacks.

OpenBSD 4.7 Preorders Are Up 191 191 writes "The OpenBSD 4.7 pre-orders are up. That means the release is done, sent off to CD production, and snapshots will turn -current again. Order now and you more likely than not will have your CD set, T-shirt or other cool stuff before the official release date. You get the chance to support the most important free software project on the planet, and get your hands on some cool playables and wearables early. The release page is still being filled in, but the changelog has detailed information about the goodies in this release."
