    Because racing season is over...

    I'll race your computer.

    From completely powered off to having BF on your browser page.

    My old P3/533 with BeOS would cold-boot to the desktop in four goddamn seconds. Add in loading whatever browser it used and loading BF, we're probably talking 15 seconds, tops.

    I don't even turn off my computer nowadays, so I dunno. Turning it off would take away precious looking-at-this-gorgeous-monitor time.

    I do believe you have a problem, sir. Not that it's my business. Just noting.

    Is there a way that I can make you not okay with your having problems, but not to such a degree as for it to interfere with your life, just make you uncomfortable?

    Probably, but I'm afraid that's something you're going to have to research on your own. Not something I should really be helping you with. You understand, I'm sure.

    I need to shave weight. Will removing the post-it-notes make me go faster?

    You used BeOS? I'm so jealous... I wanted a BeBox for the longest time, and was hoping Apple would choose it for a Copland replacement back in the day. I even had my Mac themed with Kaleidoscope to make it look like I was running BeOS. Ah, the memories...

    No matter how hard I turn the crank on my computer box, it still takes around an hour and a half to boot up. However, the clown pops out of the top with much more authority at the end.

    Cypress:

    Can't get enough of the zoolander Magnum move in your signature.
    Arguing with ignorant people is an exercise in futility. They will bring you down to their level and once there they will beat you with their overwhelming experience.

    BeOS was definitely a good thing. I tried Zeta (the new version) but it never really progressed. You end up with a quick OS and the same 10-year-old interface

    Yeah, well... you wanna see a QUICK OS??? Try running Win 3.1 on a P-III or faster. LIGHTNING fast! Not that I'd wanna use it everyday, but...
