Random quotes...

Don't blame me. I'm an interpreter. I'm not supposed to know a power socket from a computer terminal.

Okay, so it seems like the problem is a great library for generating PDF files with PHP.
So almost true...

comment Panel apps try to launch in xterm, even though it isn't installed
@j0h That is strange. Did my first command not work for you? Please confirm that you are indeed on Ubuntu and not Mint. I'll test this out myself (I'll have to use a different terminal though). Can you be more specific about the problem?

You say you are strong willed. I'm not sure that is a quality we want in a moderator. What if something the community wants doesn't agree with your opinion? Do you use your strong will for your opinion or what the community decides? If both, how do you decide which?

Also, for brevity, 10kers don't actually get to handle flags, just see them and add our own agreement or disagreement flags to help prioritize the real mod queue.

@FEichinger Contrary to what you may believe, I think reaching 10k reputation made me think about nominating myself more than I otherwise would have. It opened my eyes to a whole new aspect of the site that I could help with. It made me think, instead of sitting here in the flag queue adding flags to flags, I could be handling them instead, helping the site much more. What do I expect it to be like? I expect it will be a lot of work, with little actual reward. But I also think it will be fulfilling, knowing that I am helping keep Ask Ubuntu a nice, clean place.
