Chris Devers wondered about Birgitt Funk, an early, short-lived
(void)er. No-one provided an answer.
Simon Batistoni announced (on behalf of #london.pm) that the collective
noun for a group of cunts is a bray.
William T Wilson unlurked! To join a discussion theorising about
reality gameplay. That one rolled for a while, talking about the use
of real money to buy advantage in computer games.
Paul Mison marvelled at the Nepalese royal massacre.
Then, Paul slagged the Boots photo service. Victoria McDonnell
disclaimed any responsibility for Boots photo dept; it was all working
fine before she left. Dave Cross clarified that Paul was talking
about bootsphoto.com .
Mike Jarvis made the controversial statement that Jenna Bush was the
most famous teenager in the world. Later, many Nordebos jumped in
David Cantrell asked about US>UK shipping prices, with helpful replies
from Todd Larason, Simon Kinahan and others, prompting evildave to
slag hitechcafe royally.
Harl deftly twisted the reality game thread, pointing at an example of
a game played out in reality via a variety of mediums.
Paul Mison posted another excellent summary. Gripping hand, military,
hacksploitation, t-shirts, photos, copyright, handhelds, GCC and more.
Patrik Nordebo admitted that he didn't know what a Nathan was. Paul
Mison helped out with some Nathan links.
Mike Jarvis spotted his name in Todd Larason's sig and felt weird
At this point, someone decided to leave the (void). I don't think
they had ever posted, though. It's not so common for anyone to leave
or join (void) nowadays. Much like the skyscraper in 'Highrise' by
hud.ac.uk failed, sending the list-admins lots of mails.
Simon Wistow contributed an impressive amount of information about
I noticed that theregister had started stealing stories from the
Harl asked about getting lab equipment. Ian Malpass came through with
a link. Harl revealed (after Al Snell's prompting) his plans to
research the antimicrobial properties of wormwood in the spanish
desert. That'll be why he's after a solar powerable palmtop then.
Later, Steve Mynott warned against drinking neat wormwood oil (aka
Someone joined the list.
Ian Malpass pointed at a truck with lasers.
A thread about fireworks grew from somewhere. Steve Mynott made us
all jealous by talking about the indoor fireworks him and his mum used
Paul Mison took a photo of a borked cashpoint.
Steve Mynott pointed at a boy scout story, which both Simon Wistow and
Paul Mison thought was probably deja-void. Steve apologised. Simon
Batistoni later claimed Original Meme Source status, and flexed his
meme muscles further by pointing at another article from the same
place as the scout thing.
Natarajan Krishnaswami pointed at an excellent porn/pony quiz, causing
many, many people to post up their scores. Most notably, Robert
Shiels got 0/12, which is 0%.
Someone with a perl related username subscribed.
Matthew Jones sighed at Geri Halliwell, in a dismissive manner.
Harl posted the "make the pie higher" George W Bush poetry. Simon
Batistoni had already seen it, ages ago.
Chris Devers replied to a question posed last week by the absent
Ashley Pomeroy. The New York building he was thinking of was the
Flatiron Building, perhaps the world's first skyscraper. Paul Mison
later contributed a relevant photo taken on the recent NY visit,
taking the opportunity to praise the NY subway and slag the london
Someone with a hotmail address subscribed.
The thread about underage drinking continued. William T Wilson over-
generalised, Randal Schwartz countered. Randal still hasn't tried a
cigarette but later hinted that he might have tried pot. Ian Malpass
provided reasoning behind his theory that Jenna Bush is stupid. This
thread ran on until its purpose became clear; allowing Chris Heathcote
to deliver the punchline "abso-fucking-latte." He did so with style.
Replicant took a picture of a BT multiphone, which reminded Robert
Jones of the mool-tee-pass as pronounced by Mill Jovovich in the Fifth
Robert Shiels pointed at a webcam pointed at the worlds largest
flower. Definitely link of the week for me. I saved a shot of it
pre-bloom, and another of a guy up a step ladder (which was amusingly
Todd Larason wondered what a US police car was doing in London. Steve
Mynott suspected the KLF. Ian Malpass came through with an
authorative explanation; it was part of some campaign against
illegally parked police cars. He had seen something on telly about
it. Chris Heathcote confirmed this story, adding that the owner of
the car was screwed by the police once. Replicant was inspired by
Chris's mention of a sofa car, and found a whole load of links to
Matt Jones pointed at The Onion.
Robert Shiels pointed at a meme generator, causing Ian Malpass to
point at his conspiracy theory generator.
Someone unsubscribed from the (void), then immediately resubscribed
from a different domain.
Ian Malpass pointed at an old index of visitors to Ellis Island
Alaric Snell related his intentions to torture drunk people with
lasers. Paul Mison didn't like that idea, but was glad of the
warning. There were several other drunken mumbles of disagreement.
It seems that no-one called the police as yet.
Some people chatted about the London Dungeon for a while. Victora
McDonnell liked it, Dave Cross works across the way from it.
Richard Clamp had a strange experience where he lost awareness of the
outside world while in hack mode. Paul Mison related, and thought it
was a good thing to happen. He then wondered what people thought
about their careers.
Simon Wistow posted a link with reference to last week's thread about
Harl yearned for Echo Beach by Martha and the Muffins. Simon Wistow
shared the warez.
Another hotmail user subscribed.
After racking his brains for a while, Ian Malpass pasted this link to
a place that tracks banknotes.
Simon Wistow pasted a link to a shockwave movie that didn't work on my
machine for some reason.
Paul Mison laughed at some of the smaller political parties. a bit of
chatter followed about the monster raving loony party, triggering
links from Lee Maguire and Replicant.
Chris Devers forwarded some spam about pet adjustment.
Steve Mynott came up with two views upon the film 2001. Ian Malpass's
dad didn't like watching it when he had meningitis, but his sister's
boyfriend's dad worked in the Art Dept for it, allowing us information
about a tea set that starred in the film. Ashley Pomeroy would have
had something to say about all this, if his mail account was working.
and that's it... sorry about the lateness, i've been visiting my mum
in ledbury. i had my laptop to work on it, but didn't Have The
Technology to send it. right now i'm sitting on a train made late by
(so the rumour goes) someone with a gun in didcot.
this was hard work even without arp's presence. so, respect to blech.
