Marc - I was joking. Yes, I have read up on peaceful flash mobs. A peaceful flash mob could easily turn into a non-peceful flash mob, and be an increadibly powerful weapon. However, I'm not really concerned, because, as a Moderator of the General Discussion Forum, I'll now have advanced notice of any upcoming flash mobs.

I think we should all put empty Red Hat boxes over our heads, show up at the lobby of Microsoft, and for 10 minutes, bother the receptionist asking for technical support about Windows crashing.


[edited out my second idea. Don't want to be responsible for people doing it.... God knows someone out there would try it.]

Geez Louise... don't people have anything better to do? Hey, let's all meet at some random location for no apparent reason other than to see how many people will show up. Seems like a colossal waste of time to me. But I guess that's just me!

like my parents would probably say: "at least they're spending some time outdoors."

Welcome to InReview sambucajay! You are funny!

Are you volunteering to do the counting? I'll come if I dont have to count. I hate arithmetic, always off by one.

I think Marc would have received the original message if he set this thread up to email him when a new post is entered. If that's the case, he can post my original message if he kept it, but it went something like this:

Everyone should be given a glass window pane, and they march into in the lobby of Microsoft, and on cue, everyone drop the window they are holding, and all at once say "now you know what it's like to have Windows crashing"


Can you tell I have a problem with Microsoft's products?

Now you see why I edited it out? I tried to delete my post above but I was past the 60 minute time frame. I shouldn't have reposted it and I regret it.

*sigh*

Oh, it's all good... I was just pointing out that I hope no one actually does it. Your idea is hillarious, though.

(If you still want it edited out, PM me.)

That just cracks me up...too funny.

I consider this a fairly peaceful demonstration of how I feel about windows....a few years back when I first started to use it at work, I hd the tower on the floor with the restart button at floor level...so every time my computer crashed I had to kneel down before the god of Windows, but I was not praying....
