To avoid casting aspersions on our feline friends, the "cat" command is now merely "domestic_quadruped."

The "nice" command was historically used by privileged users to give themselves priority over unprivileged ones, by telling them to be "nice." In System VI, the "sue" command is used by unprivileged users to get for themselves the rights enjoyed by privileged ones.

The "abort()" function is now called "choice()."

I hate PC people, they're so full of their own faeces. They are a disease that needs to be eradicated.

Ohh...off, of my soap box, ha ha :))

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
