Okay so it's Monday.
Here's some lunchtime humour...
The world's first spud powered web server!
Needless to say they're running linux!
And on the topic of why the penguin in the linux mascot...
> Linus Torvalds, the creator of the Linux Kernel, was visiting his friend
> Andrew Tridgell, the creator of the Samba suite. They were walking
> through the Zoo in Canberra when, without warning, a huge flock of
> vampire attack penguins dove out of the sky and tried to carry Linus
> away. Fortunately, Andrew had an umbrella. Still, one of the birds
> was able to nip Linus' hand with its fanged beak. Rumor has it that on
> moonlit nights Linus still runs out into the darkness and jumps,
> stark naked, into icy water. Of course, he's Finnish and may always have
> done this. In any case, this is why the Penguin is the Linux Mascot.
