Dancer interviews himself
Question: Hasn't it been a while since your last
Answer: Yes, it's been a while. No, I haven't forgotten you.
Question: Just how hard can it be to lay hands on two
8-port 100Mbps full-duplex switches, 25 metres of UTP, and a
half-dozen patch-leads? I mean, not difficult kit, right?
How long could it take to grab these items?
Answer: 8 days, so far. 11, if everything goes right from
Question: Aren't you apalled by this?
Question: How long does it take three servers to be

projects would call it a beta - probably a third or fourth
beta). We're on track for a second alpha in a week or so.
Our popularity soars, and the team could probably win a US

Answer: Well, I'd hope so, but possibly it wasn't.

Answer: Well, it's been suggested that I go to a linux event
with Telsa. Some people think I could pass for Alan, in such
company. I dunno, though. I'd have to cover the grey in my

would probably throw people off the scent for a while.
Question: Why do you ask yourself such odd
Answer: Well, I didn't expect the Spanish Inquisition.
Thank you, and good-afternoon.
