FreeBSD logo...

Okay, I'm sorry, I promised myself I wouldn't do this. But after thumbing 
through 165 e-mails this morning, most from this discussion group, I got a 
little tired of reading these. So, I figured I'd just throw in my two cents. 
I'm pagan. I'm proud to be pagan. I'm ordained non-denom pagan. On behalf of 
all the heathens out there using FBSD, I'd like to say... we like the daemon. 
Not because of any ocultist reitualistic 'I wanna go sacrifice a goat' BS, 
but because for once, a major contribution to the computing world is using 
something from our history correctly. Daemons were around long before 
Christianity. They weren't bad then, they aren't bad now. Just my two cents.
