immagini e luoghi comuni

Mentre Apprentisorcier e Castlerock vagano cercando di traslocare il loro blog, qualcuno deve pur continuare a lavorare, a fare presentazioni e a soffrire.

Ho preparato delle sobrie diapositive per la riunione di avvio progetto stamane e per alleggerirle ho inserito delle immagini vagamente pertinenti al tema, che tenessero desta l’attenzione e i pensieri dei partecipanti.

Per la diapositiva dedicata a “collaborazione, informalit

Has anyone actually built this code?

Gandalf: No! Don’t ever use it!

Frodo: How do we know it’s source to the One OS of the Dark Lord?

Gandalf tosses a CD-R into the burner, and burns Windows.Source.Code.w2k.nt4.wxp.tar onto it. When the CD is done, there are glowing fiery letters on it.

Frodo : I can’t read the fiery letters.

Gandalf : There are few who can. The language is that of Redmond, which I will not utter here. In the common tongue, it says “One OS To Rule Them All, One OS To Find Them, One OS To Bring Them All And With The NDA Bind Them”

Frodo: Take the source code Gandalf!

Gandalf : Noo! Do not tempt me with it! I dare not take it! Not even to keep it safe! You must understand Frodo, that I would be tempted to use this source code, for good. To disclose hidden API’s, help the WINE project. But through me, all of open source would be tainted, and the LawyerWraiths of The Dark Lord will sure destroy us.

Frodo : But it cannot stay here!

Gandalf : No, no it can’t.

Frodo : What must I do?

Gandalf : It must be sent to the fires of /dev/null, where it will be undone, and we will be kept safe from the Lawyers of Evil.

So remember folks, don’t download it, or look at it, or attempt to build it! It is evil, and answers only to the hand of The Dark One.
