Nice.


Some nice quotes:

Beware of bugs in the above code; I have only proved it correct, not tried it. -- Donald Knuth

"On Usenet nobody knows you're a god!" -- Kibo

Usenet is like a herd of performing elephants with diarrhea -- massive, difficult to redirect, awe-inspiring, entertaining, and a source of mind-boggling amounts of excrement when you least expect it. -- Gene Spafford

"Software is like sex; it's better when it's free." --Linus Torvalds

Usenet is like Tetris for people who still remember how to read. -- Button from the Computer Museum, Boston, MA

"There is infinite hope, but not for us." -- Kafka

"Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had." --Linus Torvalds

Use Net News, don't Abuse Net News -- href="http://www.domtools.com/~pab/" target="_blank">Paul Balyoz

"Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just." -- Jefferson

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life. -- Andrew Brown (my favourite so far ;)

"NT 5.0 is the last nail in the Unix coffin. Interestingly, Unix isn't in the coffin... It's wondering what the heck is sealing itself into a wooden box 6 feet underground..." --Jason McMullan

(note to the uninitiated - NT5 was later renamed to Windows 2000. See now? ;)

"Anyone who slaps a 'this page is best viewed with Browser X' label on a Web page appears to be yearning for the bad old days, before the Web, when you had very little chance of reading a document written on another computer, another word processor, or another network." -- Tim Berners-Lee in Technology Review, July 1996 (this is the guy who invented the web, kids.)

Some good info here. I chose the top two:

and

hildrum guide to IP addresses


All very interesting. The 3com one has like, 3 pdf files, so it's a little longer than the hildrum one, but they're both very interesting.

Ok, here's a joke that takes the piss outta Americans. Kinda funny ;)


CNN Newsflash

THE U.S. WORLD CUP SQUAD HAVE JUST ARRIVED IN MUNICH TO TAKE FULL CREDIT
FOR SATURDAY'S VICTORY.

Following on the success of the film U571, Hollywood is to make film of
Munich Victory.
Universal Pictures announced today they plan to make a film of the
momentous football match that took place on Saturday. "Five-One" is the tentative
title of what could be next year's big summer hit, depicting the American
national soccer team's stunning victory over Germany.
After discussion with the accountants and marketing department, the
producers have decided that:
1) The game played will be American Football for fear of alienating the
US audience who would not understand the rules of soccer and
2) The game will be between the US and China, the producers being
anxious not to further alienate the German market and
3) The score will be 500 - 1, any less crushing a victory being
unacceptable to the US audience and
4) To avoid offending the UK market, and in the interests of historical
accuracy, the final credits will include a short note acknowledging that
England (including Scotland) has adapted US football to their own versions
of soccer and rugby, and won a game in 2001 against someone other than the
US which inspired the making of the film.

Nicolas Cage heads an all-star cast as the captain of the brave US team
haunted by the trauma of losing in the 2000 World Cup final on penalties and
the death of his wife in a riot caused by English football hooligans, and
finds love in the arms of a female sports journalist played by Julia
Roberts. Mel Gibson is the no-nonsense Swedish coach who leads them to
glory, with Keanu Reeves, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon and Will Smith playing
some of Cage's heroic teammates.
Jeremy Irons is set to star as Sir Nigel Villiers-Smythe, the dastardly
Englishman who coaches the German team and forces them to play with
poisoned-tipped studs to try and cheat the heroic American team out of
victory.

Director Steven Spielberg defended the film-makers' decision to focus on
the American contribution to the victory and inaccurate and even imagined
events in the story, saying, "Obviously we've had to take some artistic licence
to make the story work on film, but I hope that what we produce will be true
to the spirit of what happened on that famous night."


PS - I have nothing against Americans, hell I have loads of US mates, but the joke's just too funny to not publish


I'd like to thank Chris Williams for sending me that nugget of finest comedy. ;)
