Linux: Build your own paper cutout Tux :)
« on: August 17, 2005, 07:55:35 am »
Check it out here! :)

I built my own tonight. Just an advice: The legs have a tab to attach them to the body. Make sure the tab points DOWNWARDS when you stick them to the feet.

Code: [Select]
RIGHT: Here, the tab's on the bottom and will stick nicely to Tux's buttocks (from the inside).
        |
__======|


WRONG: If the tab is on the top, you'll have to fold it to stick it, and that will make the legs
fragile so you'll have to use scotch tape.

And on the light side, I finally understood the TRUE meaning of cut and paste :lol:

Hmmm I think I found the cause.

Apparently someone posted the link on Slashdot today and it got slashdotted (ironically, the guy promoted the use of coral cache :P )

I digged around a little and here's another link.

Nice. This'll do fine on my desk. Now I'm sure less people will ask me why I like to use Linux.

Let's be honest : do YOU think a cardbord window on your desk beats a cardboard Tux on cuteness?

I don't think so :-)

Thanks for the link.
