Programmers _LOVE_ to write documentation, so you can ignore all
of it. Instead, whenever you have a problem, why not just phone
Linus direct, collect of course, and he'll happily come to your
site and fix your coumputer free of charge.

Just because the oil companies tell you gasoline is inflammable, doesn't
mean you should believe them. Go ahead, throw a match in the tank and
see what happens for yourself.

Be a free spirit! Ignore all the rules! Be a non-conformist just like
everyone else!
