As a technical point (and aside), this might refer to:

- Repairing something.
- Discerning one's position on the globe.
- Removing of part of the reproductive system, rendering an
  organism sterile.
- Processing exposed film in photography.

I would hope not to be fixed in the second sense (mostly
because I don't want to be assaulted), and certainly not
in the third (I like my particular bits, thank you).  I
somehow doubt I'm a pasteboard light-exposed image, either.


As for Open Source...I'll admit to wondering what eventually will
happen, as the Source spreads around to about a half dozen environments;
Linux, general Unix, MS-DOS, Windows, Symbian, and VMS come to mind.
