Linux After about a year of work, the ArchLinux distribution now offers a variant running on the FreeBSD kernel. Says the developer, "Why would I do this? If like me, you enjoy FreeBSD and love it, but also like the philosophy behind Arch Linux, which is a fast, lightweight, optimized distro, I figured why not combine the both. Even though you could just do it on FreeBSD using the ports, not everyone wants to compile." This now puts Arch in the same category as Debian with Debian GNU/KFreeBSD, which offers a Debian userland on top of a FreeBSD kernel.

Right now I'm wearing one I stole from the merchandise window of a bank, because I was well annoyed with them. So in a way I robbed a bank I guess. If you think about I paid for this watch several times already anyway.


Wow. So, the law enforcement employee in me is in shock right now, but in reality I'm laughing my ass off! ;)

Don't worry! It's probably a cheap generic watch you can order with your own logo/color(s) in bulk.

I put in a new battery and the inside was the same as another watch where I only removed an empty battery.

Had I asked for it I would probably have gotten it.

The strap is bright green, making it cool to wear in the summer. Not when visiting the bank of course.

I think I remember you telling me about that watch in an email conversation a while back...you just neglected to mention that it was contraband! ;)
