We don't have a Linux box available, though we might later.  Until then
you can compile your own from the source (it is supported).

Nothing particularly wrong with that, eh?

To which he replied


Didn't like your comment at all !!!

You need a better system, you have hundreds of links telling everyone you have linux 
compiled and even on your own server you have now.

We'll you need more than money, you need a better education!!

When you publish a link make sure the damm thing works, or else get off the WEB.

Look at your damm list of compiled code JERK, there it is LINUX big as day, but your 
cheap computer system says what ??? error error error error .

FIX it dick head then send me E-Mail when you got your shit in one bag.

Certainly not very kind, but I felt obligated to be nice.

I said that we didn't have one yet.  I had to use my roommates system
to compile it.  This is the one that I alluded to using, I didn't think
the details were necessary.

This is an interesting sentence.

Well, nothing seems to be wrong to me, but of course, what would I know.
I'm such a Web newbie, can you possibly forgive me?

Also, mind using 80 columns next time?  All the better to understand
your rants. . .

Now, one would expect most people to stop complaining, especially since the object of the original complaint had been fixed. But, not CLIFF J LARSON.

Another complaint?


We all sit and admire you, wow what and x-pert!

Check-out your downloader link ???


Sure am glad you're at school and not in the 

real world.


Oh, and yes I took a look at you NCSA TRASH COLLECTOR (WEB-DIRT)

Call for help when you really want to learn to write good code.


NETSCAPE or NETSHARK of even AOL might help you with you.

Have a great day, and remember be nice, we are all looking

at you ;-).

P.S. don't send any more mail, we've had enough from the NURSERY.


Well, that certainly was arrogant and informative. Note the casual use of the royal we. This time he remembered the eighty columns, but he seems to have had a problem with the return key. Though, that could be due to his lame Windows (TM) mail program. But, I held my temper.
