1969? (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 11 years ago | (#6621786)

This article showed up in my search as being December 1st 1969 o_O And then the article itself says 2003... there's something smelly afoot.

Dioji (632761) | more than 11 years ago | (#6622181)

I just found the article by searching for the oldest /. article. Maybe this will turn into another hidden sid?

Re:1969? (1)

xombo (628858) | more than 11 years ago | (#6623846)

another hidden sid? what others are there? and I am confused, how do you get the year? I only see the month, date.

Anonymous Coward | more than 11 years ago | (#6624476)

If you want to see the year then check this out: http://slashdot.org/search.pl?threshold=1&op=stori es&sort=1&start=36567

Y'know, I'm glad I'm not the only one who took the time to find the oldest slashdot article.

Re:1969? (1)

Kardamon (54123) | more than 10 years ago | (#8578220)

It seems like the oldest entry is this one [slashdot.org] .
By the way, now (March 2004) the year is not 1969 anymore, but 1970, so I guess it will always be 34 years old. Let's have another look in 2038!

Tis 7pm for me, being EST. And I take it it'd be Midnight exactly for GMT, so it makes sense, if you think about.

The fight against skynet continues (1)

pocra (607480) | more than 11 years ago | (#6716149)

Please ignore this story; this has been sent back through time at great expense to aid the fight against Skynet by inspiring a young Linus Torvalds to create an OS named Linux which, by providing a system without the communication security holes will allow the creation of T800 without the vulnerabilities that allowed other models to be controlled by the TX, thus in turn allowing the details of the conflict between the T800 and TX to be relayed back in time to Jonathon Mostow, and helping springboard Arnold Schwarzenegger's political career, ultimately culminating in his presidency, and the creation of a global utopian American superpower.

So, you ain't seen me, right?

Finally, a news item I can post in without 969 people posting while I type my message!.

That said, I have nothing interesting to say...

It's like driving along a highway, and seeing an old bridge over a stream next to you -- you realize that's where the old highway went...

This story is just like that. Kinda odd and out there, and 99% of the passersby will never find it.

And this comment is only three days after yours. heh.

Another thing to ponder is, why are we still allowed to post comments here?

Let history show that I came here on April Fool's day, to escape the lameness of what stories appeared on the front page on this day... ^_~

faust13 (535994) | more than 10 years ago | (#9446824)

This has become something of an obligatory thread, for those curious where it all began. Where /. started. Although 1969 is hard to believe, but nonetheless, it is the first /. post.

I have made the /. pilgrimage, I have come to mountain, Muhammad is not here.

focitrixilous P (690813) | more than 10 years ago | (#9458862)

Of the AMD cpu to power old threads. Any mods here?

Re:I feel the power (1)

Halfbaked Plan (769830) | more than 10 years ago | (#9478356)

The only AMD processors I still have around here are old K5, K6, and various 486 variants. I hope to one day contrive belt buckles out of them.

A bathroom floor or countertop tiled with them would be cool, too.

Oh, I probably have some AMD 8088 and 8086 processors, too. Good old AMD!

Welcome to 1969 (3, Funny)

daveo0331 (469843) | more than 9 years ago | (#9488531)

Since many of you visiting this thread were born after it was posted, I thought I'd tell you something about what 1969 is like (or 1970 for those of you east of the Prime Meridian):

We are losing soldiers every day in an unpopular, unnecessary war halfway around the world. Millions of people have turned out in protests against the war. We will face a global energy crisis within the next decade. History is being made in the area of space exploration. We have a dishonest Republican president whose administration is (or will be) tarnished by scandal. The world's biggest computer company is an evil monopoly that everyone hates.

Re:Welcome to 1969 (1)

Unnngh! (731758) | more than 9 years ago | (#9489993)

Are you talking about 1969 or 2004? Lil' help?

NemosomeN (670035) | more than 9 years ago | (#9490023)

Unfortunately, quite possibly the most hilarious comment that will NEVER get modded up. If I remember, you shall get my "underrated"s. (Karma is in order).

Re:Welcome to 1969 (1)

Richard M. Nixon (697603) | more than 10 years ago | (#9767337)

We are losing soldiers every day in an unpopular, unnecessary war halfway around the world. Millions of people have turned out in protests against the war.... We have a dishonest Republican president whose administration is (or will be) tarnished by scandal.

Hey, at least no body died when Nixon lied!

And that war was all JFK's fault.
OK, I guess technically Eisenhouer started it but JFK escalated it.
All I wanted was peace with honor, even if it kills us.

And let's face it, who would you prefer as president? me, or that moron GWB?

Vote Nixon 2004
Now more than Ever!

Re:Welcome to 1969 (1)

daveo0331 (469843) | more than 10 years ago | (#10121311)

Mr. Nixon -

It's your predecessor, Lyndon Johnson, that really escalated the war in Vietnam. You just inherited the mess, much as John Kerry will inherit the mess over in Iraq (assuming we don't give the neocons another 4 years).

As for GWB, if he ran against a ficus, I'd vote for the ficus.

BTW, how did you manage to post a slashdot comment from beyond the grave? Since you don't seem to be a Bush supporter, have you considered registering to vote? You should be able to get registered in Chicago.
