A good laugh


This one made me laugh neopoleon explains why he defines a new syndication format named ASS:

You see, I’ve heard that The Internet has been slowing down over the years because there’s too much stuff on it. Everybody and his mamma has put up a “This is my big, dumb, drooling idiot dog” page, and The Internet is reaching its maximum storage capacity. In layman’s terms (read: terms you’ll understand (maybe)), the computer that The Internet runs on is running out of disk memory space, and it’s because of all the stupid web pages that people have.

  1. Reminds me of a computer illiterate fried of mine who said to me recently, "So did you hear, I finally installed the Internet on my computer at home."

    It’s funny you should say that – I wasn’t able to simply make up that whole bit about the internet computer running out of disk space. I had to take my mother’s understanding of the internet and translate it into a paragraph (which was difficult because it meant embellishing quite a bit (her understanding of the internet is: "Isn’t it just in the computer?")).

    I think we all must know at least one "I think that the whole internet is in my computer" person.

    Just don’t tell my mom that, for me, it’s her 🙂

    I’ve been using very small words lately to do my part in saving space.
