In a pool game, sometimes there's no good shot.   You can either 
try to bury the cue ball so that your opponent *also* has no good
shot, or you can just smash the cue ball into the nearest cluster of
balls to randomize the rest of the game, get another beer from the
bar, and get back to having fun.

I heard a rumour that Credit Suisse is running Debian from HP, 
but a press rpt that HP is partnering with RH.

Those are the kinds of customers I'm aiming at, at least for a
bootstrap phase.

LMA: FM is a *gem*.
