The final list...

The final list... is coming.
Its at home, and I'm at work, so you'll have to wait until tonight. I'll also modify the thumbnail page (marotti.com/slashdot) by putting the name under the picture. So watch out for the JE tonight or tomorrow.

To pass the time, discuss monkeys using a computer, no they didn't and won't produce shakespeare.The final list... is coming.

Oh, and this is my last day at this client, so starting monday I'll be able to IRC and AIM and YIM, etc...

Lot's of S's (1)

daeley (126313) | more than 11 years ago | (#5918900)

You know, like the chimps, we should have just used a lot of S's during our HoF efforts. Would have saved a lot of "thinking up funny crap," in the loose, "brain not dead" sense of "to think." Either that or follow their lead in urinating and defecating on our keyboards. God knows I've had days like that. ;)

So? (3, Funny)

At first, said Phillips, "the lead male got a stone and started bashing the hell out of it.

"Another thing they were interested in was in defecating and urinating all over the keyboard," added Phillips, who runs the university's Institute of Digital Arts and Technologies.

I often feel like doing the same thing.

Oh and I've never written anything approaching Shakespeare either.

My question (1)

When the hell is The Contest going to get into the HoF?

Man... that'd be überlame if it doesn't go in....

I think it's pretty clear that it is not going to the HOF...

oh well... at least we had fun, right? ;)

So. Can we now say definitively that JE's are not eligible?

Not nearly enough monkeys... (1)

John Harrison (223649) | more than 11 years ago | (#5919092)

That was only 6 monkeys for a month. They need more monkeys, more keyboards, and more time. I suggest 17 monkeys for a year! In that amount of time they should be able to squeeze out a word or two. Also, they had better give the monkeys some ruggedized equipment that can take a serious monkey beating. Don't forget ergonomically correct monkey keyboards. How arrogant of these "scientists" to assume that monkeys could type efficiently on a keyboard designed for humans. They probably all have RSI now and will sue for damages. No wonder they kept hitting the 's' key, they were trying to say, "Get me a better keyboard or I'll sue! An IBM model-M would be nice, thanks!"

And don't let them play solitaire or tetris.

"...equipment that can take a serious monkey beating."

'Nuff said.

Finally someone simpsons-ofied this JE! ;-)

Give a time you are going to publish... (1)

(H)elix1 (231155) | more than 11 years ago | (#5922356)

As some of us (me) have not posted our guesses yet. I am working on it... Hate to see all the notes and sluething go to waste because I was too slow. Make it later in the evening if you could...

Maybe they used to work here (1)

Servo (9177) | more than 11 years ago | (#5922873)

Often times I want to yell and scream and use lots of S words. I've never had the idea to urinate or defecate on my keyboard, but given enough time and negative energy, I could see why someone might.

Well, it is sunday... (1)

kormoc (122955) | more than 11 years ago | (#5930619)

Well it is sunday, and I assume you have been busy this weekend, but do you have any idea when you will get the final list up?

Thanks man :)

Because you are so fired! Where's the list, buddy?
