1 Hi there Nick,
3 Sometime you should put Larry the Cow against Larry the Cucumber
4 (from vegie tales). :-):-):-)
6 Good work anyway. Keep it up. You have the potential to do well.

16 Dear kind folks at gentoo linux,
18 Hello. My name is nick becker. I have never used your distro but i have
19 heard
20 many good things about it and may try it some day. That aside, my email has
21 nothing to do with such matters, well only tangentally. The point i'm trying
23 to make here is that "Larry The Cow" is a comic that i've been drawing for
24 years. YEARS. I have a webpage at
25 (actually just like a reconstruction of it from another site from a long
26 time
27 ago with out of date email addresses and such) that was updated last
28 probably
29 before your distro ever even had its first release (too lazy to do the
30 actual
31 research). They have copies of a larry zine i made for free distrobution at
32 Black Planet Radical Books in Fells Point in Baltimore. etc. etc. etc. The
33 point is, um, i dont know. I kind of want to be like, be really mean and
34 start
35 some crusade to shut you down for using Larry (it is even crudely drawn,
36 like
37 my larry, and has horns, which would actually make it a bull, not a cow) but
38 i
39 can't say that i really care that much. I just think it'd be fun to crusade.
41 Anyway, shit, i dont know, it's wierd. Really really wierd. I don't think i
42 like it, only becuase once you guys get more popular computer nerds will
43 start
44 thinking i named my comic after your distro, which i didn't. (and of course
45 i
46 doubt you ever saw my comic or named larry after it, so i'm not accusing you
48 of intentially stealing my ideas) I'm not saying like, change it or i'll sue
50 you, but just like, i dont know, whatever. It's wierd. I really need to
51 update/make a new page for larry. Anyway, that's that.
53 - nick
