Argh!  We're Debian.  We're trying to get action!

fsck it!  groups.google.com --> Mike.McCarty@sbcglobal.net site:lists.debian.org

Plenty of stuff, lots of replies and multipost threads.  Can't see any
bug reports.  Guess it's off to the BTS to search there.  Drat.

How 'bout that?  Search of the BTS for submitter reports no reports
found.  Huh?  What address did you submit them from?

I'd rather Windows just shrivelled up and died, but I don't really
care.  If she wants to use their junk, that's her problem.  We're
allowed to be fools nowadays.

Debian, on the other hand, I do care about and want to help fixing
anything I can.  *Lots* of others in this thread are saying the same
thing.  "Problem?  What problem?  I can't see it!  Where is it?"

Nobody can fix what they can't even see.  You're not helping.

Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
