Mulinux runs in many monasteries in northen Italy, and also in a couple
of convents in Tuskany. I heard rumors about muLinux running in important
abbeys in Europe (some examples: Cluny abbey, Novalesa abbey ... ) and also
at Radio Vaticana. They like much to enjoy mulinux, but a this moment they like
to know what really means such strange messages coming soon after login,
like "Arepo tenet opera rotas", "Quisque faber fortunae suae" etc.
(Oh, mon dieu! Latin is not matter of regular courses in Europe
such long time?!)

I've a remote relative -- called Sister Mary, living in a
Orsoline Institut -- which reports unbelievable news about a
sort of "muLinux mailing-list digest" used as educational tool in a
computer science first-aid course for nun. She said: "De Propaganda Fide"
checked the entire archive of articles and removed or changed
NOTHING, with a noticeable exception: they removed some sparse
Woody Allen's sentence, because it comes from such pessimistic ancestors
and also not fully politically correct. But all remains text is unchanged.



I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't 
remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
