rock217 Re:No way was this an accident (257 comments)

The cpu "cooler." The misspellings on the box. This was fraud.

Are you sure?

10 Cool Gadgets You Can't Get Here

rock217 Re:Click 30 Times? (232 comments)

You mean click 10 times to see the top 10 gadgets?

To be fair, there are 11 pages counting the intro "slide."

So we have about 19 missing clicks to account for.

Ok, well everytime you click to the next page you have to scroll down again to see the navigation, at least I do at 1280x1024. So that's 3 down mouse wheel "clicks" per page, so 11x3+11=44 clicks, shit too many!

Ok I guess I can just hit Page Down instead of mouse wheeling, for the sake of argument we'll count that as a click as it is replacing a click function. That yields us 11+11=22 clicks...still short!

Fine I relent, there aren't 30 logical clicks in there, taco was lying. Unless taco is one of those people who has to select their browser text to read it, as if it might come flying off if it weren't held down by your highlight color. In that case you could easily fill up 30 clicks!

Stupid stories deserve stupid tags.

So help me science, if that story about TinyURL being down and sites like twitter being pissed off b/c their implementation _relies_ on it appears on slashdot, I'm going to tag it: nexttimeimplementyourownfuckinghashtable.

There, I said it.
