Default Fwd: changing my e-mail address

Dear List,

My cat, much enjoying this thread, would like to know:
"What please, referencing particular persons, is a 'git'?"

Thank you.

What difference do you think there is between those 2 operations?
Hint: none at all.

Your question was boring as you self-answered in your original mail.
Just do the damn unsubscribe/subscribe dance. If it causes you
problems, please reconsider the wisdom of owning a complex bit of kit
like your computer.

Also, learn how to respond to people trying to help you with your
questions whilst /not/ sounding like a git. If this is a
secondary-language thing, hence you didn't otherwise realise it: your
email, above, made you sound like a git. Stop that.

It carries on like an attention deficit disorder and qualifies as noise
pollution. That's all I can see. The 'Newbie' tag others are attaching to it
simply doesn't fit with its references to Ubuntu lists etc.
It knows what the deal is. Do it.
Anything that might have remotely resembled a valid question was answered
some time ago, politely. If he chooses to persist in lunacy, it's time for
the other.

Sounds like the kind of idiot that would use toilet paper and then complain
that it was soiled.


Religion is regarded by the common people as true,
by the wise as false,
