Here’s a sub-glowing review of Infinity’s first day of carpetbagging into a movement they clearly don’t understand but wish to pretend they do. I went to the site myself, and I wonder who exactly is going to care enough to jump through all those hoops just to get to the stream. I also love the disingenuous use of “open source” for something that has no openness whatsoever, not even links from the damn references in their listings back to the original sources. Jesus. It puts me in mind of this passage from Tom Sawyer.
Like it? Well, I dont see why I oughtnt to like it. Does a boy get a chance to whitewash a fence every day?
That put the thing in a new light. Ben stopped nibbling his apple. Tom swept his brush daintily back and forth stepped back to note the effect added a touch here and there criticised the effect again Ben watching every move and getting more and more interested, more and more absorbed. Presently he said:
Say, Tom, let me whitewash a little.
Tom considered, was about to consent; but he altered his mind:
No no I reckon it wouldnt hardly do, Ben. You see, Aunt Pollys awful particular about this fence right here on the street, you know but if it was the back fence I wouldnt mind and she wouldnt. Yes, shes awful particular about this fence; its got to be done very careful; I reckon there aint one boy in a thousand, maybe two thousand, that can do it the way its got to be done.
No is that so? Oh come, now – lemme, just try. Only just a little Id let you, if you was me, Tom.
Ben, Id like to, honest injun; but Aunt Polly well, Jim wanted to do it, but she wouldnt let him; Sid wanted to do it, and she wouldnt let Sid. Now dont you see how Im fixed? If you was to tackle this fence and anything was to happen to it
Oh, shucks, Ill be just as careful. Now lemme try. Say Ill give you the core of my apple.
Well, here No, Ben, now dont. Im afeard
Ill give you all of it!
