A whole new meaning to "circular reference" :)

Thanks! :)

I wouldn't call myself a Linux user. I have used it, and am a little (very little) experienced with it.
I am actually attempting to dual-boot to Fedora Linux for the sole purpose of learning how to program with Linux.

Oops! I didn't mean to put the same URL, haha. I was pretty tired when I first posted, sorry. :cheers:
I fixed it. Thank you for pointing it out, otherwise, I would have never noticed. :)

Hallo Peter,
Ich betrachte mich als stolzen Franziskaner süchtigen Trinker.

Let's talk in english that is more easy.
There is a magic bar in my town serving this fantastic divine Franziskaner inspiration. Every Saturday night I enjoy 3-4 seidels of 500ml until my stomach blows up. I just can't stop drinking it. It is a small but tasteful pleasure in this fucked life.
Jacklaz someday asked which ones are Bavaria beers. I didn't replied then 'cause i though he was joking at me.

Franziskaner uber alles.

Gute Nacht

Nuno, I don't know. Maybe it 's self-defense from everyday madness, maybe a way to keep our mind cool under this f@cked sun. Or it is just the psychology of maritime people. Or we finally discovered the ultimate answer to life, universe and everything.

Great! You are the second people in this forum where I assume to have a good taste.
Maybe I nerve you, but my question about "but I got Καλό βράδυ. Is it correct, too?" is still not answered. You know, that I now Greek (comparable with my low level English). And therefore I'm interested in improving.

"καλημερα" when meeting somebody before noon. "καλησπερα" is like "guten tag" when meeting somebody after noon. "Καλη νύχτα" or "Καλο βραδυ" is like "gute Nacht" when leaving somebody after the down.

Thanks!
What google did not tell me and what I wanted to have from my "kali espera" memory) was "καλησπερα"
And since now I know that the for me until now unknown "Καλο βραδυ" is identic to "Καλη νύχτα" (pronounced kalo wradi?).
(I already since 50 years know the difference between Καλο and Καλη)

Ask Google for "Man wird so alt wie eine Kuh, und lernt immer noch dazu"

Naah, you invented philosophy and geometry, built very nice ruins of temples :cheers:, but you didn't discover the ultimate answer to life, universe and everything. :cheers:

That is reknown, it's 42 :cheers:.

The tricky part is the actual question...:cheers:

ruins of temples

Wonko, you don't know about art. Those columns are not ruins of temples but post-modern art. The ancient artists put four columns in a raw and called them "temple of art". As centuries went by, the sign "temple of art" was gone semi-erazed. So, modern people think wrongly that the sign might be "temple of Zeus", and coulumns are remains of a bigger building. :ph34r: Yes, the ancients discovered post modern art too, contrary to classic art (these perfect shaped statues).


I am working on the ultimate question. And after years of study, I believe that it is: "40 plus 2 = ", but I still lack of documentation.

Bear in mind that complex questions might have unpredictable easy answers, such as the blond woman who solved the Pythagorean theorem at once without calculations:

Maybe I have the unexpected success, that I cought you for the first time. :ph34r:

The old Greek NEVER built ruins of temples, they built very good buildings called Temples.
What do you think how you look after 2000 years?

Why do even you bother explaining that to Wonko? He's Italian, one walk on their capital and you stumble on greek post-modern art look-alikes all over the place.. :ph34r:

It was even popular right next to where I live in Portugal (albeit we have them in brick because the roman contractor clearly cheated us on the budget contract).

Really? WOW, never thought about that! :)
I see that humour, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. :cheers:

@Nuno
Yes, Romans were also very good at building ruins, not only of temples, but also of aqueducts, sewers and roads.

But no, there was no cheating, the Portuguese at the time were too d@mn lazy to move HUGE marble blocks, and the only way the Romans could convince them to build some column stubs ;) was to have them made with bricks, relatively light and easy to carry.

Why can't you agree at least ONCE, that in this case you are NOT the winner?
