Why is Everybody so clueless on the importance of Desktop Search to the Masses?



  • Alrighty then, xposted!


  • I survived the hour long Uno hand

    This showed up in my feed and immediately reminded me of Swampy:



  • I can't get the hang of this disco thing. When I hit End, it seems I can only reply to the last comment, not to the topic itself. Anyway, it doesn't matter.

    I hardly ever post here, but to this "search" monstrosity I am somehow compelled to. I can't decide if this is the funniest or the saddest thread I've ever read.

    Dear Swampy

    I wrote my own share of bad code, during my seven year stint using crystal meth, but never, not even when I was awake for 8 consecutive days, high as a kite and out of my fucking mind, I really mean it - never, was I ever as fucking deluded as you are.

    Never, no matter how fucked I was and no matter how badly I tweaked, did I ever go so far down the wrong road with such obsessive enthusiasm as you have with your software or your video-making-madness. Never.

    When I first read your rants, I thought maybe you were using too many hard drugs, but even that wouldn't explain it. It astounds me that somebody can go through life, just drifting along, not quite functioning but somehow surviving, when they are obviously so far removed from reality - so far removed that they will probably never find their way back. Somehow you do remind me though, of a phrase that I came up with in my active addiction:

    Life is always a grand adventure when you don't know what the fuck is going on.

    Get some help.

    .. he said, as he replied to the topic, instead of the last post...



  • 😆



  • Actually I started replying to the last post, then cancelled, hit Home, started replying to the topic, then cancelled because I wasn't sure what "Reply as linked topic means" - it looked like it was going to quote the whole thing. Then hit End again, and pasted my copied comment after hitting Reply to the last comment.

    Hence my statement that I can't get the hang of where the fuck this reply is going.

    [Edit... oh fuck, that REPLY button at the bottom. Apparently I thought I didn't notice it, while somehow clicking it the last time. I'm confused. It reminds me of my bad old daze that I mentioned in the first place.]

    It would make a whole new thread that was also a reply to this thread. You didn't want that in this case 🙂 If you see threads that start with "in reply to" quotes, that's how they did that.

  • Hmm... I don't spend a lot of time on forums. So discourse is no newer to me than any other... Also my brain is tired... just had a 3 hour code review for something I wrote 6 months ago,.. (Long story.)


  • I survived the hour long Uno hand



  • @Yamikuronue whats a stalfos?



  • To keep your 🐎 in at night. 🤣 Hey, no drumroll emoji? Damn... well, still better than Dicksores

    I just hope we haven't summoned Swampy from his slumber in R'lyeh... BTW, did anyone ever try to get Swampy and Temple into the same thread? If so, what happened?

    That thing you want isn't called a drumroll.

    Here you go:

  • @SpectateSwamp

    I try to leave this forum topic and a box pops up that says, "Wait don't go, would you like to view the video instead?"

    Oh, and the comment section below is fake. He even sockbotted to add negative comments to make it look real.

    In fact, my post is fake. Don't believe me, inspect the page.



  • @ben_lubar I knew that but couldn't think of it... thanks.



  • First Swampy, then Nagesh, now presidentsdaughter... all we need is someone pretending to be IrishGirl and we'll have successfully erased the Discourse Era from existence.

    And apparently TempleOS never actually posted here. Pity, that, it would have been entertaining to watch that particular train wreck... maybe throw @gavinolearning in while we're at it, too, just to add some kick to the mushroom cloud.

    Filed under: and maybe then we can have a séance to raise up the shade of Archimedes Plutonium.

    First Swampy,

    No, @xaade replied to an old post. According to his profile page, Swampy, himself, hasn't been seen in 6 months.


  • BINNED

    @HardwareGeek He figured there's no point, Discourse had enough random random random already, nothing to compete with.

    now I'm curious about how some troll can be so trolly to scare even tdwtf forum users



  • Why in the world is this topic back?



  • @WPT
    Ben imported everything ... and since this is WTDWTF it was necro-ed

    He's not a troll. He's a sperglord who is on a grand project to reorganise the whole world's information along lines he believes to be logical. Utterly nothing will stop him short of giving him his own internet sandbox and letting him shit that up for a few lifetimes.



  • @dkf some sort of bond villain?

    The Internet seems to know nothing about the guy. Any sources for our amusement?

    Aside from "heh heh, it says Satan"... has this thread really been viewed over half a million times? Seems like Swampy did find his audience after all!

    I thought he was busy trolling comp.lang.* on usenet.

    I don't see how he's any worse than sjw-fox.

    Wait, I thought we were talking about gavino the 💩-poster?



  • @Maciejasjmj said:

    I discussed him a while back in the I-Hate-Oracle-Club. While a full indictment of his crimes against the Net would be too long, this Usenet search should give you some flavor of his particular psychosis. He haunts the newsgropes for several languages (mostly Scheme, Forth, and tcl, each of which he has repeatedly claimed was his favorite), demonstrating his ignorance in a wide variety of topics, begging for code, horribly abusing spellar and gramming, insulting people, being an embarassment to capitalists the world over, and ranting about how Ayn Rand was the voice of the God she didn't believe in.

    Here's a few samples submitted to evidence:

    on comp.lang.forth

    I of course plan to replace LAMP with forth and open a series of awesome websites of course, perhaps using the appserver by mr paysan. I hold a degree in albiet misguided keynesian economics from top 20 school, and econ dept might be top 15 when I went. I have since learned how austrain school economics IS economics and keynes was simply a response by big government to fight the intellectual weapon that would get in thier way. Even Henry George had better ideas. I should be hired by Romney as economoic advisor. First thing I would do is end all carpool lanes. Second I would mandate all governmetn offices use unix desktop [free] not oracle or microsoft crap.

    On comp.lang.scheme

    remember fdr caused the great depression and that 1000 phd in government economics aka keyens didn't stop 2008
    also atomic power is sustainable and nasa can be made useful finally by launching debis into sun
    mass produced metal houses
    private union free train
    fairtax.org
    cut gov spending 99%
    end all pensions and public school and money to universities
    let uiversities morph into private think tanks producing methods nad produciton efficienciy technology and selling such
    no restricitng market with patents anymore
    factories galore make the dumb productive and poor rich

    This, keep in mind, was on comp.lang.scheme, and he was the sole poster to bring up economics.

    comp.lang.scheme again

    Oracle is a bunch of crony communists and government tax money pocketers.
    Expensive and shady.

    He never once explained why he thought a for-profit corporation which has spent years feuding over tax payments is ' a bunch of crony communists', but hey, crazy is as crazy does.

    same thread, demonstrating that his ignorance of the history of Scheme and Project MAC is rivaled only by his ignorance of both open-source development and capital-driven economics:

    free software is free market capitalism
    the essence of which is freedom to add value to that which exists
    no government program created scheme
    unregulated individuals did
    communism never works

    I could go on, but this is more than I can stomach already.


  • Discourse touched me in a no-no place

    @ScholRLEA You won't see most of what the Tcl community did to him, as that was mostly about detecting what IP address he was using to access our community Wiki and giving him his own world to shit up without bothering the rest of us. Database space is cheap.

    He's moderately difficult to detect on Usenet by searching as he switches From address quite often (<sarcasm>I wonder why?!</sarcasm>) but his style is entirely his own. And there is exactly zero point arguing anything with him at all; he never listens.

    QFT, as I learned the hard way.
