Here's a new site mini-feature -- random quotes. At the bottom of the left-hand navigation bar, there's a small box with a computing-related quote chosen randomly every time you load a page.

I've added 30 of them, but if anyone spots or remembers any other good quips, please do post them here and I'll add drop them in! Preferably about Linux, although classic remarks about computing in general won't go amiss. Oh, and they must be proper quotes, and not hearsay Smile

How about "640kb ought to be enough memory for anybody" - Bill Gates ?

Apparently, Bill denies that quote, and it has never been truly confirmed anywhere. Grrr Smile

I have noticed one Tom Lehrer quote so far, but my favourite (and so far not seen here), indeed my entire philosophy of life can be summed up by:

"Life is like a sewer, what you get out of it depends on what you put into it."

Sometimes I am left speechless while contemplating the deep truths embodied by the above. <insert philosophical smiley here>

Shouldn't that be "there is no place like ~/"?
