When geekism is an obsession, Bug 626593

I was in #omg!ubuntu! on IRC when i heard about this bug from TenPhil! This bug is unique, weird, and … AWESOME!! I’ll quote the bug report!

Bug 626593 - Gnome ate my boyfriend! Help!

Dear Gnome, 

Please, have some empathy and help me out.  

Because of you, my boyfriend is chronically attached to his computer and has
ceased to pay attention to me.  I try to plan fun things for us to do on the
weekends and then he cancels on my because of GNOME conferences!  He even went
to the Netherlands to GUADEC two weeks ago and left me at home alone for a
week!  He keeps going to all these conferences and I just don't know what to
do.  Apparently there is some Boston Summit thing he keeps talking about?  

Way back when, he used to talk about Linux every once in a while and I found it
nerdy and cute.  However, as of late, his obsession has become a large dark
gloomy cloud on our relationship.  Even when we are away from our apartment, he
is perpetually attached via his MAEMO Linux phone.

He even tried to put Linux on my computer and I simply could not take it.  I
came home from work one day and my computer said "UNIX" all over it!  Recently,
he installed Linux on his mom's computer and now she is calling me complaining
and I don't know what to do!

Please, help me bring my boyfriend back from "Linux Land."  His name is Zach.
If you find him, you may have to shut off the computer you find him in front of
to get him to speak in anything other than "C."  Sometimes he will speak to you
in French, but thats only because he has his phone in French.  I don't speak
French so this too has become a wedge in our relationship.

This is a severe issue.  Please fix this.   



I actually find it funny!! … although it’s almost what what people say about me! But hey, do you really think that’s for real? Cuz all i see is a TROLL! why? cause a “normal” girl would barely know the geeky stuff, and not know so much to remember “GNOME”, “MAEMO”, “UNIX”, “LINUX”, and “C” and which is for which!! But i might be wrong!

Here’s the link of the bug if you wanna read the replies!

  1. She filed a bug.

    If that doesn’t prove that she’s as geeky as heck, I don’t know what will. I even doubt that she really is a she..

    The fact remains, he’s a troll.
