I'm sort of right behind you. I can understand SystemD for creating the tools to make a good desktop. However, tools that make a good desktop do not necessarily make a good server. That's where I see the problem.

I run Linux Mint on my desktop and as long as it works, I don't really care what's under the hood. However, I also maintain servers where I care very much what happens under the hood. For example, I care about being able to read plain text logs and I don't understand what possible reason there could be for storing logs in a binary format. I also don't see the need to have a super complex system configuring my network interface simply because in a typical server environment your IP address doesn't change often, if at all.

I'm definitely looking at FreeBSD again (it's been 15 years since I touched any BSD outside of monowall/pfsense) and am using it for a new project at work that's currently in Alpha testing phase. I'm doing it because it's more in line with my KISS preferences but I will admit that I miss iproute2.

It's Richmond, not Vancouver, that's trying to encourage english in the business sphere. The reason is because there are so many chinese only signs that many non-chinese aren't even going into the city and it's hurting the city. I know that I only go into Richmond when I absolutely have to, and there's no reason for me to go. I haven't been there since I quit my last job that was in Richmond over a year ago.

As for the Quebec referendum, the only problem I had with it is no one asked the rest of the country if they could stay. That would've been a VERY different referendum if that happened.

When you consider that this is actually fairly typical of the returns in any Canadian federal election since the 1950s, then I can make the same claim of many Liberal governments as well, except for the bias towards Ontario in those cases. The west votes Conservative for some very good reasons (NEP and CWB for starters).

>The most telling artefact of CanCon is still the radio though, try listening to a rock station for more than a day in a row without hearing at least one Rush, Guess Who or Nickelback (ugh) track. I don't mind some of it but you can tell when it's Canadian percentile block time and you'll want to shoot yourself in the face with a 22

Crap like that is the reason I don't listen to domestic music radio. Ever. Period. I listen to the local news/traffic station and the rest of the time, it's satellite radio.

As for the 22, I'll need to see your firearms permit before you discharge that firearm.
