And so the entire list of naughty and nice children fits into a single A1 poster by Santa's computer. Davidy²²[talk] 09:59, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

Presumably it's a delta encoding; he writes down changes to the lists and then later writes them into his records and gets a new poster. 16:19, 10 March 2013 (UTC)


Seeing as the username is robm, should this be attributed to Rob and not Cueball? Mark Hurd (talk) 16:27, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

Yup, changed that. Xyz (talk) 14:32, 14 May 2013 (UTC)


Real Linux does say "this incident will be reported," but does *NOT* report it to Santa Claus. Xyz (talk) 14:49, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

Actually the title text kind of explains this! The incident is reported to root, by email (by default, anyway). So if Santa is somehow "copied" there, he will see the message. Durka42 (talk) 08:11, 17 November 2013 (UTC)


So all we need now is an Ubuntu distro that reports failed sudo attempts to Santa Claus. Santabuntu anyone?
