< bda> Jumpstart/JETs lack of a "classes" concept is really annoying.

< bda> Ages upon ages ago, ICARIX stole it from the Developers so that his sysadminii kin could group hosts of similiar configuration.

< rjbs> So, I gave a talk at PPW about App::Cmd, in which I mentioned "freakin' sysadmins."

< rjbs> Later on, jcap and I were in a disused room talking, and a bunch of people came in. "Is this the BOF room?" // So I said, "Yeah. What BOF is in here?" // "The freakin' sysadmins BOF."
< bda> No respect.
