Note to end-user: the OS that's on the box that's running your website is supposed to be there. If your web d00d misconfigures their Apache to the point where you can see what OS the box is running, it's not the fault of the manufacturer of the OS. Really. Threats involving the FBI get slung!

I have an "Ego" folder in the mailbox that my LJ comments come to, and every now and then I put a comment away in there. It's not something that I want to keep in the inbox for active reference, but it's nice to have a collection of reminders around that I have historically rocked, from time to time. Imperial Auditor Vorkosigan notes that it's only necessary to have one blinding flash of insight to be considered a genius. Similarly, I must surely possess some subtle level of rockitude based on unsolicited comments of "You rock" from complete strangers, even if I do not consistently rock all the time.
