The Joys of IRC

hought I would share a little IRC session that me laugh.

Oh, and if you want useful information on Sabayon 5, please see Wolfden’s very useful planet post, inc pretty screenshots

This is the kind of thing that you see and dont expect it to happen to you! Ahh IRC.

Please join us on #sabayon on for sabayon help and to hang out with cool people like rakuen, lxnay, joost_op, DHalens, Azerthoth, tangent, wolfden and ofcourse Thev00d00.

Without further ado:

<rakuen--> no, I am using it to this computer (...) wait a moment

Also I love people who say “pacific” instead of “specific”. Makes me fuzzy inside. I wonder if they realise.
