OT I\'M NOT CALLING BILL GATES SIR!

Re: OT I\'M NOT CALLING BILL GATES SIR!

Haha... Peg-leg Bill...

I never understood the status of knighthood. For the longest time I always thought you had to be at the very least British in order to be knighted by the Queen of England. I'd hate to say it but the fact that they are handing out a Knighthood to every Tom, Dick, & Harry regardless of where they are from or what they did, seems to diminish the validity of the honor.

They should make Linus Torvolds a knight instead!

He, through Microsoft, has ripped off every computer user in the world, then gave about 1/2 of 1 percent of his ill-gotten gains to charity. This makes him a philanthropist! [img]images/graemlins/AR15firing.gif[/img]

I like the poll for who should get kinghthood next. I voted for Warren Buffet simply because he is from Nebraska (even if he does live on the wrong end of the state)!

Don't worry Taz, he can't be addressed as SIR, since he is not a citizen of the England. He can only have a KBE at the end of his name.

People forget that he gave us the inexpensive pc. Just think if Mac's were the only choice. Thank God we live in this country where we can live our dreams.

Re: OT I\'M NOT CALLING BILL GATES SIR!

I rather use a mac than thank gates for the pc....

I have to imagine linux or a clone thereof would have come along soon enough.
