That makes me giggle in places I didn't know I had.
I hate how /. articles never explain what they're talking about. They take for granted that you know every piece of tech and 'famous' geek they mention. Uhh, noooo... that's why I'm reading /.— to learn about this stuff. That's the one thing I've always hated about geek culture; the one thing that's ever kept me from being a true geek. They assume you know everything, and if you don't, you're the stupidest person who ever lived and not worth their time. Case in point, this comment from someone trying to tell a self-proclaimed neophyte how to format a drive. "You want to format a drive? Oh, just format it." Yes, but how?
Thanks for nuthin.
