Slashdot Humor

There was a discussion on Slashdot, asking whether anyone really used token ring networks anymore. (An alternative to regular Ethernet, what your TCP/IP likely uses.) I spotted this great exchange about token rings in the discussion thread:


A: I experienced P2P token ring back in college. Here's how it worked: a group of peers arranged in a circular manner would pass around a named pipe. Each peer would hit the pipe, a process known as token. After a while, the pipe would be cached, and a designated peer reloaded the pipe.

B: We tended to be a little more technically oriented where I went to school and used a water cooled device.
Homestar: Cool

Playing with yourself with your cello

'Cellos rock.

(Why an apostrophe? It's actually an abbreviation of violoncello.)

So what do you do if you're a clever 'cellist with no one to play around with?

(I'm fastidious about an apostrophe yet I wrote a sentence as unstructured as that one? Yeesh!)

You play a rondo with yourself. A creative and original performance. I think the credits sum it up best: "Everything by Ethan Winer". :)
