Linux "Today I pushed out a new ISO of my Wayland Live CD project, which is named for my favorite celebrity. For this new Wayland CD, I wrote a new login manager with Bash and Zenity and Expect (and Script) that fully runs on a Wayland server (weston). Now X is no longer involved in the boot process, and X does not start, (unless you use an X application with xwayland), because I replaced LightDM with the new loginmanager."

A guy I work with grudgingly admitted a while back that his college-age son is a high ranking member of the Atlanta area Brony club. He said he suspects it's a ploy by his son to "get girls interested in him".

The kid is an engineering genius, and nerds are big with the ladies these days. Somehow I don't think it's about getting a date. Some guys just take that show completely seriously.

And who am I to judge anyway? I greatly enjoyed watching Sex and the City in my early 20s, and that's something most guys would never admit to even if their spouse made them watch it (and I wasn't married then).

I can't imagine that would work very well. Hell, my sister is probably even more cynical about the whole "brony" thing than I am - and she watched the original cartoon back in the 80s (and owns 4 horses, for that matter). Though it could be because she's had a few students who were bronies, and who very quickly became disillusioned when they realized that real horses aren't actually cuddly cartoon characters.

Oh yeah - and hell, we typically give trekkies & comic book fans a pass ;) Though it's not really the "girliness" of MLP that strikes me as odd, so much as the fact that there's such a large adult fanbase for a show intended for 5-10 year olds.
