It truly warms my heart that someone caught the reference, and the humor. And yes, the people who marked me down didn't get it; they were too busy feverishly googling BSD and Linux history to see that my post was actually a rant from a 2006 film about the fashion industry. Please stop being so serious, SD'ers :)

'Apple Markup'? Oh. Okay. I see. You think this auction has nothing to do with you. You load your custom linux kernel say... I don't know... some run of the mill Debian flavor, for instance because you're trying to tell the world that you take yourself too seriously to care about which OS's Apple is putting out. But what you don't know is that that Apple is not just linux-based, it's not redhat. It's not mandrake. It's actually OS-X. And you're also blithely unaware of the fact that in the 2000's, Steve Jobs did a collection of innovations to the tech industry. And then I think it was the iPod... wasn't it that revolutionized the music industry? I think we need an iPod here. And then iPod quickly showed up in the collections of eight different major retailers. And then it, uh, filtered down through the department stores and then trickled on down into some tragic Think Geek site where you, no doubt, fished it out of some clearance sale. However, that iPod represents millions of dollars and countless jobs and it's sort of comical how you think that you've made a choice that exempts you from the technology industry when, in fact, you're using the technology that was *selected* for you by the people at Apple despite their current 'Apple Markup's.

As a gay homosexual "IT Bear", I feel the need to comment that there are PLENTY of gurls that work in IT. Having teh gheys replace the traditional feminine rolls of the workplace is a much better alternative because: 1. If you flirt with them, they are unlikely to file a lawsuit. 2. They cook, clean, and gossip just as good. 3. They have the sensibility of men.

When all else fails, read the instructions.
