stair diving

posted by sbp at 2001-12-18 21:41 (permalink)

sbp: """You may be asking yourself what the point is there to diving or falling intentionally down a flight of stairs. The simple answer is that there is no point, that one throws themselves down a flight of stairs simply to entertain others."""
AaronSw: man, this page makes me want to jump down the stairs

AaronSw: By Dan Bricklin
AaronSw: """Imagine "reprogrammed" and "enhanced" Segways, with the expert rider able to call up different crafted behaviors at the push of a button, with extra accelerometers on their heads, legs, and arms, competing with stunts that would look like they were special effects in Crouching Tiger."""
AaronSw: Heh, I like this comic.

AaronSw: I've also had my email blocked by HP recently, due to some vicious filters there. They didn't like the fact that my account name was only two characters long ('me'). Sheesh.
AaronSw: Of course they quickly fixed it.

sbp: Q: "Does BrainFuck.Net use the controversial Microsoft Passport system for authentication?"
sbp: A: "No. The Brainfuck language has only 8 commands, and none of them are related to authenticating remote network users."
sbp: I await a Befunge port...
