    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant compared to the power of the Force.

    Mozilla and others demand change in FSF leadership

    So apparently the board of the Free Software Foundation has reinstated Richard Stallman to the board of directors. Now personally, every time I hear the man speak, I've found the man to be annoying af for years but I haven't paid a whole lot of attention to him. People who have paid more attention to him find him to be a whole new level of morally reprehensible and his reinstatement provoked

    At this point, I'm pretty much in full agreement with the demand that Stallman and the rest of the FSF board step down.

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    I don't want to make light of a serious situation, and this is pretty serious and I support the request in the open letter... BUT did you see there's an organization called: "Great Scott Gadgets" and I love it.

    I hadn't seen them but looking at their site they make some awesome toys.
