Just imagine what a single soldier with a shoulder-launched dragon anti-
tank missle could do to OCLUG's x86-based web and mailing list
servers. They're running Python, aren't they? Just to compare, I
guess that we'd have to try out the missle on a massive water-cooled
mainframe running COBOL.

I also wouldn't want to be in the WWI tank, or WWII for that matter, when
the single soldier with a shoulder-launched dragon anti-tank missile
vapourizes my ancient piece of crap either.

Me neither. I think it's safe to say it doesn't. :)
