Hi Satan, did you just call me?



  • While eavesdropping on a phone conversation taking place in my department (by no means MINE, rather just belong to), I heard a funny.  I overheard someone who makes way more money than me talking to some sort of phone/networking company or something - I don't know for sure.  The intelligent part came when Mr. EarnsMore asked if the network runs on PCP/IP. 

    If it does, I'm totally subscribing.



  • Well you better start learning then.

    search google!



    There seems to be an increasing crowd using it.



    Although I have to say it looks really buggy to me. 🙂

    Holy shit!!! It must be Opposite Day or something.  Perhaps my brain if failing, but... isn't that the definition of <font size="5">T</font>CP/IP ?

    PCP/IP would have to be either <font size="4">P</font>ransmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol, or perhaps Phencyclidine/Internet Protocol, which sounds like it could be a lot of fun, although not too reliable as a network communications standard!

    Pr0n Control Protocol / Internet Protocol

    Perhaps? I for one would bet that the T-> P originates from the
    verry 1337 ppl that cries out LOL in frustration when dying in CS.

    Looks like yet another firefox bug to me. Firefox is the one returning
    the date to a short javascript, no wacky 2-digit year processing
    seemingly involved.

    not really, it's a bug in his javascript.

    He is using getYear() which is not equal to getFullYear()



    if you look at this table it's expected behaviour to show 105 (1900 + 105 = 2005)

    Opera behaves the same BTW, so it's NOT a firefox bug



    And i had to register just to get this straight

    I think it actually is.

    It took me a minute to figure out that he meant CGI (Common Gateway Interface) by this one:

    <FONT color=#808080>Computer Generated Information - <FONT style="FONT-SIZE: 11pt">A program that is run within the server of a web master.  The program allows calculations, database management and other interactive applications to occur behind the scenes of a web site.  The program is often written in PERL programming language.</FONT></FONT>

    MSIE is broken in this regard, and the brokenness is probably
    intentional -- it beats calling all of your customers idiots to their
    faces (no matter how true that may be) and telling them they have to
    change their bad code. The problem is all of the "web developers" who
    design and test only in IE will never know that they're making the baby
    Jesus cry.



  • Theres quite a few gems on that "glossary" site(http://www.hyperformancemedia.com/Glossary.htm):


    <font color="#808080"> <font style="font-size: 11pt;">Bandwidth</font><font style="font-size: 11pt;"> - It’s the way that bits are transferred between the server and visitor to a web site.  The most common bandwidth is a 56k modem.  The amount of bandwidth affects the speed that the information is sent.

    priceless....
