Sleeping pikachu

(no subject)

hah, ladymace and I went through a stack of old milk crates containing my childhood book collection.

It consists of mostly hobbyist magazines, religious texts from at least 2 different religions that I never was a member of (for reading about them), weird dated textbooks and educational books from the early half of the 20th century ("A first electrical book for boys" is among my favorites). A 6th grade reading text I got as a gift when I was in 2nd or 3rd grade, a few books from my childhood, a book on cool things like dinosaurs, and all kinds of scientific study stuff, old manuals for programming assembly on CP/M, printouts of all kinds of amusing things like scripts to log into bbses and check my email, stuff like that. There's an actual copy of a magazine specializing in users of DOS in the pile somewhere. One of the articles debated the utility of defragmentation, talking about all the bloat in DOS 6.22.

I just thought that was awesome.

The wonders of the +G flag in Unreal IRCd

[pjustice] Grr! Coprophiliac helix server mangles ithyphallic quicktime files as it delivers them. Phallus at 11.
[myself] Is this likely the result of spongiform encephelopathy on the part of the designers, or some perniciously evil interaction with other software?
[pjustice] As it seems not to matter which promiscuous programmatics are used, I suspect the former osteocephalics of copulating it all up.
* myself falls over
[pjustice] In case anyone's G-flag mind is apogenous today, my thersitical language indicates that I'm brassed off.
[myself] revenge of thesaurus rex!
[pjustice] YES!
[pjustice] Oddly, I'm finding that coming up with all this prolix scatology is good (as in reduces the inflammation of) the desire to impel perfectly functional hardware into a defenestratory predicament.
[AmishOne-work] Stop now. We must encourge the desire to propel copper coated lead into hardware at supersonic velocities thus resulting in stress relief.

Oh man, this is precisely why I set the +G flag. It was totally worth it. I absolutely love this excrement.
(The +G flag on an IRC channel on a server running Unreal IRCd censors most common swear words - I set it with the intent of people coming up with more creative outlets for anger than lame ass swear words. Totally awesome.)
