+<saying who="mrout">Who likes freedom?</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">FREEDOM</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: freedom++</saying>
+<saying who="Younos">just give me my beer</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">Younos: heh.</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">No beer for you!</saying>
+<saying who="Younos">aww :o(</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">I’m in non-freedom mode atm actually, using Windoze</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">for teh gamez</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: OK.</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">but when I restart into Linux I respect the freedoms of myself and others</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: OK.</saying>
+<saying who="Younos">you should respect it regardless of the platform</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: maybe try reporting it as a bug in WINE/etc.</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: the GNU project encourages FOSS developers to port their software to  non-free platforms.</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">Though there was a small backlash about it (at least for Windows) a while ago.</saying>
+<saying who="alfplayer">encourages?</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">rindolf: I sure hope it does. if we can encourage users to try FOSS software on non-free platforms, they might more easily learn about FOSS and about how to protect their freedoms</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf"> - I provide a Windows binary for this. :-)</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">Many users don’t even know they can get software that respects their freedoms.</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">alfplayer: well, don&#39;t know if encourage, but it doesn&#39;t hold a stand against it.</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">alfplayer: and a lot of GNU software can be built fine on Windows (And proprietary UNIXes).</saying>
+<saying who="alfplayer">rindolf: that&#39;s very different imo</saying>
+<saying who="alfplayer">rindolf: yes, like gcc and emacs</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">btw is rms ever on here? He gave a talk at my local university a few years ago, and I never got a chance to talk to him.</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf"> - also see this.</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">lol</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: I don&#39;t think he uses IRC.</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: he also doesn&#39;t use a graphical web browser.</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: though he does read the web sometimes.</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">rindolf: i haven’t installed X yet, so neither do I. haha</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">He commented on a few pages on my site.</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">When he visited Israel, I told RMS that I felt making Freecell Solver Public Domain (now it&#39;s MIT/X11L) was appropriate given its target audience, and he said he thought making it GPLed would encourage more users of programs that used it to make them FOSS.</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">He also said it was OK that (now did not release their backend as free software.</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: ah.</saying>
+<saying who="mrout"></saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: well, I think he doesn&#39;t even use links or lynx or Emacs&#39; www-mode.</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: yes.</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: they changed their name and domain.</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">who are they? NEVER heard of them</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: - it&#39;s a nice way to discover some interesting software.</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: they are a web-directory for UNIX software.</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">do they host it?</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: no.</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">quite unlike something like github, then?</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: just link to it.</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">cool</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">will try to remember that</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: also see</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: not everything there is FOSS.</saying>
+<saying who="mtjm"> explains his Web use</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: and not everything is there.</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: but I try to publicise most of my major software there.</saying>
+<saying who="mtjm">IRC would need a constant network access which is difficult when travelling (and needs much mor e time than batch mail writing)</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">Well, most of the software published there is either niche or quite boring.</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">rindolf: Freecell Solver on freecode is the first result</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: for what?</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">that google search</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">I fail to see a problem</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: well, thing is there are other Freecell solvers.</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: and what I said is that I clog the search.</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">Oh, I see what you mean</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">that’s a good thing for you, though</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: lots of junk like FreeBSD/Debian/Ubuntu/Mandriva/Mageia packages.</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: that&#39;s what I call the freshmeat effect.</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">I get as the first hit. :-(</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">Damn bubbling.</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf"> - here (no bubbling) I get the wikipedia Freecell page as a first hit.</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">rindolf: bubbling?</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout:</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">I get NZ results</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">hahaha</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: NZ?</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">rindolf: where are you from?</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: Israel.</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">New Zealand.</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: but is hosted in .</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">I used to host it in a small Israeli hosting provider but they were too unreliable.</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">I asked, because i expected it to be US, and so I’d say “I know what US stands for, but you don’t know what NZ stands for? Shame on you.”</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: I know that .nz is New Zealand.</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: but didn&#39;t understand the initialism in the context.</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: some Americans think .il is Illinois.</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">And .ca is California.</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">Well, there&#39;s also .la.</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">ahh</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">And .tv.</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">haha</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">tv? that must be for tezdikistan. &gt;.&gt;</saying>

+<saying who="rindolf">Someone registered ;-)</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">Not me, though.</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf"> - no .lf either.</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">We need more countries.</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">I wish there was a .ut</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">so I could get mro.ut</saying>

+<saying who="rindolf">Ah.</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">or &gt;.&gt;</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">OK.</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">.il domains are kinda costly and they used to require faxing.</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">And I don&#39;t feel my domains are particularly Israeli-related.</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">ahh</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">Well, I originally got</saying>

+<saying who="rindolf">mrout:</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">that site’s odd</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">what’s wrong with .eu</saying>
+<saying who="mrout">shit a brick, they want a separate ccTLD for</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf">mrout: nothing is wrong with .eu - it&#39;s just that is something different.</saying>
+<saying who="rindolf"> predates .eu.</saying>
