windows uninstallation party

Filed under: Uncategorized — Muli Ben-Yehuda @ 4:15 PM

Just came back from a windows uninstallation party. We uninstaled windows from nyh’s laptop by the magic of fdisk(1) and mkfs.ext3(1) while wearing party hats and drinking wine in plastic cups. Despite the wine, only the appropriate partitions were deleted. *hic*


  1. cool event! i went to suggest we should have a windows uninstallation party instead of an installfest this year 🙂

        Or ‘Windows Troubleshooting’ … more people would come 😉
        They’d be disapointed at first, but very grateful later 🙂

  2. You should develop a game to go with those parties… like a version of ping the tail on the donkey only use dollar bills and a picture of Bill Gates.
