The GPF site may be down briefly sometime this weekend for planned maintenance. During this upgrade, the entire server will be unavailable and will not respond to requests. We don't know yet how long this outage window will take, but it shouldn't last more than an hour at most. We apologize for any inconvenience.

[Comic for Sunday, May 15, 2005]


[[The GPF gang at Sharon's. Nick is holding a board game labelled, "Linuxopoly"]]
Nick: Have they truly gone too far when they come out with a Linux version of "Monopoly?"
Fooker: If it's an actual board game and it doesn't use gnome OR KDE, then yes.
Nick: Somehow, I think there's more irony to it than that.

Ki: I get to be Tux!
Nick: Then I call Linus Torvalds.
Sharon: Eric S. Raymond.
Fooker: Nuts. Does that mean I'm stuck with Richard Stallman AGAIN?

Ki: Let's see. St. James' Network with four PCs is 750 cycles.
Nick: Darn. At least you haven't built a server yet, you tyrant.

Sharon: Well, I landed on "RAND," so I have to draw a card. "Your latest market share numbers make a vein pop in Steve Ballmer's forehead. Collect 250 cycles."

Ki: ... five, six! And that puts me on "Open Source!" I get all the cycles in the kitty!
Sharon: Ack! And I just paid that proprietary OS tax!

Sharon: You're on a "Community CVS." Draw a card!
Fooker: "Go to SCO. Go directly to SCO. Do not pass GNU, do not collect 200 cycles."
