THE MINT HOUSE

Chat about just about anything else

Postby kenetics on Sat Jun 23, 2007 8:05 am

This morning, shortly after dawn, we were attacked and nearly surrounded by the enemy. They were armed with pens and blatantly waving contracts at us. The Linspire and Xandros divisions quickly capitulated, but we were able to regroup and repel the enemy. We are armed with two formidable weapons, the Celtic sword and the famous francisca, the French throwing axe that stopped Atilla the Hun!

We have declared victory in this skirmish and I am now retiring from the front. The next time you hear from me I will be sipping a Minty drink from some tropical location. :D

Yours in victory,
Col. Ken

HELP AND SUPPORT
Credit should be given to whom it is due.

Going through the forums, one can see that the number of people that request help is increasing everyday.
Lately, about a dosen new people join every 24 hours. Some of them are complete newbies to Linux.

They mostly have some problem relating to specific hardware. In another case, they don't know how to post correctly, so that they may get help as soon as possible.
But in spite of all the difficulties, they end up having some help in a very short time; thanks to a community that is very eager and friendly. ( Some people's comments: "...what made me like Mint so much is its nice community..." )

Let's congratulate them!

The Administrator and the moderators seem to be working very hard. Clem himself, Scorp123, Husse, and Fragadelic( one of the first to join the forum and offer his help), must be commended for their tireless efforts and their patience. Many other, numerous , community members who have some experience, contribute in this way also.

At times, there is some sign of fatigue. This shows in the way supporters express themselves; a harsh remark, maybe.
But, please, let's be tolerant and understanding on both sides.

What counts is the fact that these people, voluntarily, are always there to help, even if they have to neglect their work.

CONGRATULATIONS FELLOWS!

Blogger, that's a frightening picture! :lol:

Are you going somewhere for the summer?

Btw, residents of Freeland are required to pay $2000 per year to Freedonia, since we overran your country during the last war. Have you sent your payment yet? Also send any good looking women our way. :D

Hello Ken,
Yes I am going away on a long vacation, probably lasting until late September.
I'm not sure if I will have Internet access, but I will try to keep in touch with my good friends; maybe through an Internet Cafe.

Freeland has payed 2,000 dollars to your Minister of Economics. But anything can happen nowadays with so many corrupt government officials. :lol:
For the supply of your President's Harem, we sent twenty pretty maidens
already. :lol:

Have a nice, happy summer,

Your friend, Blogger

So Blogger, where is it off to this time? Mountain climbing in the Himalayas, big game hunting in Africa or exploring the upper reaches of the Amazon? :D

Well Ken,
Since I need the exercise, and having had enough of hot weather here,
I decided to do some mountain climbing in the Himalayas. :)
But I plan to do an exploration of the upper, unexplored areas of the Amazon as well, where Col. Fawcet had attempted to discover a lost city, deep in the jungle, in 1927.

I hope I will be successful and return safely. The poor colonel never made it back, he lost his head. :lol:

Cheers, Blogger

I was hoping you would bring back a lion's head or some ivory tusks for the Mint House. Instead, maybe you could bring back some shrunken heads (as long as it's not your own!). But in any case, have a good trip and keep safe! Myself, I will be off to the Klondike in search of gold in a little bit.

PS. I know the name of a good Sherpa guide if you need one.

Good morning Ken,
The Ministry of Tourism of the Amazon Republic has been kind enough to supply brochures, maps and other informative material.
They also advertise a good variety of shrunken heads, as you can see below.
Please let me know which one in particular is your preference; I will wrap it up and send it to you by UPS. :)
http://growabrain.typepad.com/growabrai ... _heads.jpg

I was hoping they might have knowledge of the where-abouts of Col. Fawcet's head. That will be one of the objects of my exploration.

As for the Himalayas, I would appreciate if you could ask your Sherpa guide in Tampa, to get in touch with me as soon as possible, sending his credentials for evaluation.
My scientific object of interest there is the tribe of Aborigenes that were found buried under the Great Glacier in the area of Machu Piccu
in Tibet.
It is said that the bodies are amazingly well preserved and they have all of their teeth ; some dental work, it seems, was done to them in life, by unknown to us techniques, So, we may learn a great deal about their medical achievements.

To sum it all up, these two expeditions will be the most important ventures that I have undertaken in my whole carrier as an explorer. Indiana Jones agrees to follow me in the next adventure.
I mentioned your name and suggested that you should be invited for our new exploration in September.
Dr. Jones will be glad to have you in our group, since he claims to have heard of your expeditions in Alaska; some of your gold would facilitate matters and be the solution to our financial difficulties, he says. :)

When I return in September, I will give you a full report on the outcome of the present venture. ( I will leave orders to have my shrunken head sent to you in case of my failure to return in person )

Regards, your friend , Blogger

Hola Agust,
No me olvidaré de enviarle una postal de mis expediciones en el Amazon. :)
Los indios allí hablan español muy bueno también.

SORRY,
There was a serious mix-up at the obstetrician's office!
The nurse gave us the Ultrasound of a gorilla mother-to-be. :lol: HE HE HE!
They promised to make amends though.
