What I fear. (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 10 years ago | (#7196100)

I fear the fact that there are so many pathetic losers in this world that speak in the sad fashion that you do. I fear that there are so many people that think that "the Slashdot Linux community" is anything that anyone knows or cares about.

Here's a little something to get you closer to reallity. Drop everything and run outside right now. This bright yellow disc in the sky is the sun. It won't hurt you so, don't panic.

Once outside, run down the street and ask the first person you see what Slashdot is. After they say; 'What the fuck are you on, asshole?' ask them what Linux is.

Welcome to the real word. It's full of real people that have real names and do real things that really make a difference in the world. It also has a frightening number of losers like you that think their fantasies are real. You're pathetic.

Google cache is nice for news links, but for sites where the primary purpose is pics, it's a bit of a letdown since Google doesn't archive those.

Try Waybackmachine [archive.org] instead; it's a little older but at least they archive the pics too.

You did just give me a pretty cool idea for a distributed webpage network. It could be peer-to-peer like BitTorrent, but integrated into the web browser via some plugin or something to make browsing seamless. Add another tally to the list of shit that would be cool that I would never, ever work on due to my overwhelming laziness.

And, to nitpick, the .torrent is not the file you're downloading with BitTorrent.

Yeah, because serving 404 errors is so highly processor-intensive.

I actually know this from experience tho, having run Apache Bench with an incorrect URL, with something like 50,000 hits, 100 concurrent. It did the lot in no time, and the server hardly flinched. I was amazed at the speed (It was meant to be doing a DB lookup for a search). Oh how silly I felt.

Well, really it's called the subjunctive "mood," not tense. We do have it in English, but only in very specific situations. For example, "I wish this webpage were available." Normally you'd use "was," but the wishing puts the verb into the subjuctive mood. It's really a minor thing.

Re:Has apparently has worked? (0)

Indeed. I quote from "The Book of Slashdot" chapter 2, section 4:

..and The Ritchie doth spake
"Bring to me all that is Good and Just."
and it was so. Then The Ritchie doth spake more
"Bringeth thy Finn, lest my loins burst."
and it was done.

The young Finn protesteth his guilt
"I doth not copy thy look and feel, oh great Ritchie."
The Ritchie was angered
"Silence, welp! Lest I pummel thee into meat."
The young Finn recalled the stories of The Ritchie's temper
and how he hath made The Stallman into The Goatse.cx Guy
with but a flick of the wrist.
