The other night, [livejournal.com profile] esrblog was trying to tell me about a recently Slashdotted web article entitled "How to Install Linux on a Dead Badger".

I stopped him before he got to the actual details. "That's so easy even I know how to do it," I said. Here is my technique:

Step 1. Place the dead badger on its back.

Step 2. Take a CD-ROM with the Linux distro of your choice on it, and place it on the badger's stomach.

Step 3. Tear off a strip of duct tape long enough to go around the badger's midsection several times.

Step 4. Wrap the duct tape securely around the disk and badger, binding the two securely together.

Your installation is now complete.

Yes, I know, this won't make the badger rise as a zombie, the way Lucy Snyder's method allegedly does. But it is consistent with the way Linux was installed in the Chaos Machine at.... was it Penguicon 3?

And [livejournal.com profile] esrblog said he thought my method was funnier than Snyder's. So there!
