MegaUpload Fail.



  • Somebody I know asked me to upload a 700 MB file for them, so I'm doing so with MegaUpload. Partway through I notice something odd about the elapsed time:

     

     

    That number at the end is counting down every second. I'm not sure what this is supposed to mean.

     

    EDIT: It got to 3000 and then jumped back up to 3800.



  •  Isn't MegaUpload just for porn and warez?  Which one were you uploading?

    I was uploading a Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers video. Now, as far as I'm aware, Tom Petty wasn't ever in porno.

    Thanks a lot for asking, pstorer.  As if my faith in humanity wasn't shattered enough, now I have to live with the thought that there are people out there who like Tom Petty enough to steal his performances and share them with other people.  And on top of that, I've got the image of Tom Petty doing porn burned into my memory.  Fuck you, pstorer.

    Rule 34. Though Google images didn't readily offer any cooberating evidence. Yet..

     Actually, I'm technically not "stealing" them as they were never officially released. And it's Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. And what the hell is wrong with them?

    I'm just praying your username is correct in making me think you are a chick.  Not that it makes it much better, but if you are a dude, then that means you are gay.  And I have nothing against the gays, but there's nothing sadder than a man who got the gene for gay but not the gene for good taste that usually comes with it.



  •  I'm female. "Aimee" is just another spelling for "Amy."



  • @Aimee the Great said:

    other than boring, completely talentless and gay, absolutely nothing.



  • @Aimee the Great said:

    Yes.  And we have a chick who calls herself "beau".  And there are plenty of dudes (gays or trannies) that adopt female names.  Your name alone was not proof enough.

     Well, when I look down, I see female anatomy. So unless I'm some sort of mutant, I'm a female.

    So do I, but that's just because pstorer's wife is stradling my lap.

    Hey, I believe that you're female, don't get so defensive.  I'm just saying that I couldn't assume it solely based on your name.

    This is from April 9th, 1977.

    Wow, those girls must have felt like princesses, getting passed around by Tom Petty and his mediocre band like a joint.

    You haven't heard this?  Gayness is a genetic anomaly.  At least, that's been the position of gay activists for the last couple of decades.

     Actually, IIRC, the current theory is that it's something to do with pregnancy hormones.

    Not mediocre. Not at all. They're highly underrated.

    You were a joint, weren't you.

     

    But that's illegal.

     looks around

    What? No calls for photographic evidence? Not even from the back rows of the audience? I never thought I'd live to see the day ... :D



  • [QUOTE]Not mediocre. Not at all. They're highly underrated[/QUOTE]

    Not by people you know how to play music. It's just the non-musicians who have these funny opinions on stuff like that - and what the hell do they know?



  • @Anonymouse said:

    You know how it is:  %your_age% / 2 + 7

    So in her case, everyone above 20 asking for nekkid pix is a scuzzy pervert!

    According to the article, you'll be politely asked to leave.

     I think they're more of a live band. I especially like the pre-Wildflowers stuff, e.g. before 1994. Quite a bit of stuff on my YouTube channel, all from my personal collection.

    I have methods.

    Rule #34 addendum: if it exists, there is porn of it, and also a youtube clip.

    That's not what your mother says.  She told me your ego is so small that
    until you were 11 they thought you were a girl.

    Lies.  You clearly have a massive stalker database of Tom Petty articles and biographical information so you can pull these things up at a moment's notice.  Uniformed officers are on their way.

     I'm not sure what they can do because most of my articles are over 20 years old.

    Not only that, but they've never heard of YouTube. I bet there's 67 copies of that identical video already up.

  • Yeah! Tom Petty is the Man!

    Not only is he a great musician and rocker, he is also a great actor. He was on that movie.... mmm... that one movie... mmm.. damn I think it was that one with mutant kangaroo people, or was it Waterworld?

    Well I don't remember but I bet he was great



  • @jchannell said:

    I don't think Tom Petty fans are cool enough to get ahold of illegal drugs.  And nowadays most are so old they probably only tweak on Xanax and Adderall.

     I know he was in several movies. As far as I can recall, there was FM, Made in Heaven, and The Postman. He was also in Runnin' Down a Dream but that was a documentary about TPATH so obviously he would be on it.

    This is entirely too much Tom Petty.  The Sidebar now reeks of Tom Petty, just like the main stage at a state fair or the inner thighs of a coked-out, 17 year-old runaway.
