Aš padariau siaubingą dalyką...

Tokį siaubingą, kad net gėda sakyti... Tiesiog siaubas ima vien pagalvojus apie jį. Tiesiog baimė ir siaubas sumišęs vienoje vietoje... Na, kaip sakoma, here it goes... Kas su manim studina Lyderių universitete ir, ypač, Lyderių grupėje turbūt žino, kad aš esu didelis ir baisus OpenSUSE Linux gerbėjas ir aš nemėgstu Ubuntu Linux. Tai tiesa.
