This summary is brought to you by The Clash and The Celibate Rifles.

Daynal argued with lots of people.  No change there then.  Although
she did say some useful things about positive discrimination, which
ABS followed up to most eloquently.  Daynal and Rob Jones got into a
right ding-dong.  Chris Devers told everyone to calm down, and William
Wilson thought Rob and Daynal were 'cute, like an old married couple'.

William Wilson told us everything there is to know about Angband.
Arp said he would try to work "constraint satisfaction" into
conversation and ABS said "stochastic electrodynamics".  I have no idea
what that means, but it sounds dead impressive.  The thread talked
about whips, being free vs being happy, juvenile giggling, and the
etymology of 'Fnar'.  No-one mentioned Viz, surprisingly.

There was a DSW-by-proxy as people talked about driving vewwy vewwy
fast from one merkan city to another.  This was a hang-over from the
previous week.

ARP was assimilated by the Daily Mail.

Following on from last week's thread on "In The Company Of Men" we
moved to 16th century drama, but soon devolved into gouging peoples
eyes out and pissing in the sockets.

No-one understood The Onion:
Are we all hideously out-of-touch or is The Onion disappearing up its
own arse?  Vote now!

Todd Larason posted a summary, which lead to a Paul Mison Mac Infoburst.
His apprentice Richard Clamp filled in some details.  So now you know
everything there is to know about how the caps lock key works on a Mac.

Rob Jones's posting of 'Two Goodies' - Skipstone and Ion - led to a
small user-interface war, some gentle vi-vs-emacs, a couple of other
minimalist window managers,
and how vim is getting worse^W^Wbecoming more like emacs.

Duncan came back from Yugoslavia only to be told he'd lost his job.
ABS would have recruited him for a secret society but didn't.  D's
mention of the Tesla museum led to Daynal posting conspiracy theories.
Apparently, "[Tesla] was the only real scientist the world has
produced so far".  Other names of note: da Vinci, Dirac (French, anti-
particles), Dyson (spheres, vacuum cleaners), Bucky Fuller.  Red Alert,
magnetic cars, hover bikes, Scottish UFOs being funded by the US govt.

Arp's photographs from the state51 party prompted Yet Another
Photography Thread.  Luckily, this one didn't get all technical and
wibbly, instead it was more of a spot-the-voider-in-the-drug-induced-
photos competition.  Sigue Sigue Sputnik were mentioned, as was some
of that 'dance' music by someone called "The Scientist" that the
young people play nowadays.

Alex vented about how utterly shit the web is.  Everyone agreed.
There was another DSW, this time about how hard people had had it back
in the old days.  Bank sites are particularly bad apparently, but at
least they offer useful things like "services for your lifestyle" in
a vain hope that customers won't spot that the banking services don't
work.  Chris Heathcote pays all his bills whilst naked and drunk.
If you think that's a disturbing image, imagine Yours Truly writing
this summary in the buff.  Later, in another thread, Ian Malpass
got upset at Macromedia and Unipalm.  #include <flash.thread>.  And
in yet another thread, Arp wanted the internet dead.

Tracey Emin was spotted in the Anchor at Bankside.  Investigation
reveals that she's one of those Turner Prize-type modern pseudo-artists.
Simon Batistoni ranted quite beautifully about Nathans.  Matt Jones
said too much, but he left out the X-No-Archive header so we knoe that
his fantasties will come back to haunt him when $future_employer or
$future_wife checks up on him with Google.  Simon Batistoni summarised
the sub-thread (Emin -> Nathans -> marketing execs -> cloning ->
cannibalism) - all seems reasonable to me.  In yet more thread cross-
over, Arp listened to Peter Cook (who he?) talk about "digging up the
infant bodies of Christ's failed resurrections and cloning them,
whilst playing nethack".

Arp tried to start Yet Another Yet Another Photography Thread, but
his passing mention of the Renault Kangoo was enough to spawn brief
mention of other silly names for cars, and for Arp to claim that
the new Jensen is a rip-off of the TVR Speed Six.  In the usual voidy
way, we veered further off-topic to talk about how CTRL-L worked
and a  brief editor tutorial.  Emacs was argued about.  Again.
Chris Devers uses telnet.  Michael Stevens mentioned about the YAPC
password sniffing session.  You really can't be too paranoid.

Stuart Wyatt returned.  He's working too hard, for a fucked company.
But he does have a New! Shiny! G4 and says he'll get some more choonz
together for his album soon.

Arp remembered Ginger (imdb: new power source/meeja hype/mad inventor)
which prompted Stuart Wyatt to talk about those funky wheel chairs
which could climb stairs.  What I want to know is when we'll have
killer robots which can do the same.

(time_t)1e9 parties were mentioned.  Nothing was organised. Hint hint.
