Can't you imagine the conversation though?

Wife:  Why did you look at all these pictures of Eva Mendes?
Husband:  I'm just happy to learn that Eva Mendes just had a baby who has been named Esmeralda.

Wife:  But you've got twenty links to Eva Mendes -- even before she had a baby!  And you seem to have forgotten all about Ryan Gosling, the baby's father.
Husband:  Sweetheart, you don't really understand.  I was only trying to figure out who Eva Mendes was.  I mean I've heard the name before.  I just couldn't put a face to that name.  I figured if I looked at a few photos I might begin to recognize the gal.   :-[

Wife:  Mm Mmm.  Those pictures didn't look like facial photos to me!
Husband:  Well I didn't know I was supposed to be looking for mug shots....  :-X

 rjm65 , I think Wulff & Morgenthaler may be on to something here!  ;)

The truth is Mrs. perknh doesn't follow many of my computer activities either.  I do believe she thought I was behaving a little oddly when I first discovered Linux.  I just couldn't get enough of Linux, open source philosophy, and the implications of what Linux and open source might eventually mean for all of us when I stumbled upon Linux at first .  (I still see the use of Linux, and open source software, as a positive paradigm shift for humanity.)  I used to stay up all night playing with different Linux distributions, while always coming back here to Peppermint -- always!  ;)

But now I seem to have settled down concerning Linux.   I no longer stay up all night playing with different Linux distributions.

Hey, maybe my wife was right to be curious.  I did spend many a night with Linux!  ;D

Back then I would spend half the night trying this, or that, with Linux, and then I'd have to spend the second half of the night fixing my goof ups so my wife would have a functional computer when she got up in the morning.  Finally I smartened up and bought her her own computer.  And it's running Peppermint 5, I might add!

Of course if it wasn't for the A-Team here, I wouldn't have known what I was doing with Linux at all.  ;)

Too right she has reason to be jealous if you're spending nights with Linux.....
