I love it when a comment spammer accidentally tries to comment with the entire content of their spam comment content file. Each scenario separated neatly with a pipe symbol.
Rule 34: “If it exists, there is porn of it. No exceptions.” I was making this sign for a book cover (where it’d appear on the wall as a framed print), then thought: why stop there? Back when I worked at a backbone ISP, the first day HR training session was interesting. “If you object […]

I still remember learning to program. I remember the yellow paper tape and the teletype machine. I remember the smell of machine oil on the paper tape. I remember the paper cuts. What I can’t tell you is what I wanted to program back at that point in my life. Games, probably, which is something […]
