This had me keeling over with Laughter

From here

<rmrfResume> So let me get this straight.

<rmrfResume> You built a linux system from scratch using hardened GCC

<rmrfResume> secured the whole system with RSBAC

<rmrfResume> Developed private chroots for each and every service ran on it

<rmrfResume> which include an http, ftp, smtp, pop3, imap, irc, and dyndns server

<rmrfResume> WITH mail filtering and dynamic mysql databases for each service

<rmrfResume> with the mysql daemon in its own chroot

<rmrfResume> then did same system networking for the whole lot

<rmrfResume> and had everything running in a single night?

<Pryoidain> I do cocaine.

<cjk> oh

<asaph[Away]> WOW

<rmrfResume> suddenly it all makes sense.
