[olug] Terminal clients

Probably OT, but...

Back in the late-90's I was reading an article about BSD (demon mascot) and
Apple (the whole apple/darwin/etc thing) using satanic imagery...

I laughed out loud and my supervisor asked what I was laughing about.

I explained the premise of the article and he responded, "You know, they've
got a point, I've never been comfortable with all of that daemon, zombie,
mode 666 stuff either".

I choked on my coffee.

"All it takes is letting your guard down once and satan will find his way
into your heart."

So, while your mileage may vary, you might not want to mention to the flock
that the church website is powered by daemons, etc... Some people take that
sort of thing seriously and it's not necessarily easy to detect those that
will from a distance.
