Good Heavens!!

Thanks for sharing this awesome show. Always good to see how different people approach similar tasks.

Good heavens!!!!!!

Several laugh out loud moments with some guy on the internet here. The one I would clip and attach to the fridge is "See, in open source, we provide you with tools that, that if you do not specifically say, do not download the entire internet, you will then download the entire internet." (thanks for setting up that automatic transcription, janitors!)
