Archivers Discuss Peeps
Posted by Joey on 23 April 2003, 08:32 GMT

ticalc.org was down from about 4:45 to 6:20 GMT today. Unable to add files for more than 1.5 hours, Morgan and I consoled each other, discussed marshmallow Peeps, and waited for the site to come back up. Somehow, life moves on.

Update (Joey): Despite the red border, everything mentioned in this article actually happened. The only reason it is red is because it is "funny".

Something tells me this won't be nearly as funny in the morning, but it's true, and we needed some new news.

Didn't anyone ever tell you, when the sun sets all the peeps come together and combine their powers to take control of the weak minded. You know, making them do weird stuff. It is kind of like The Force, but more powerful.

Do you mean "there is one monkey" instead of "this is one monkey", if not and its supposed to be a pun about my handle, its not very good.

Anyway, LETS HERE IT FOR PEEP POWER!

Or maybe he's from one of those places that doesn't maintain any contact with the outside world. You know, like Arkansas, or Australia.

No, I've seen them before, I just didn't associate the little marshmallow chicks with the term 'peeps' before.

I live in south Louisiana, and I HATE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm a Yankee, and proud of it.

(For all you nonAmericans, the term 'yankee', as i am using it, refers to a northerner: usually above the Mason-Dixon line, or in West Virginia.)

Imagine a shaped marshmallow covered with colored sugar which tastes (depending on your POV) either like the way iodine smells or really good. then put 2 or 3 drops of carnuba wax on for the face. Voilâ! Un peep!

What's a marshmallow?

No, really! I know them from TV as things you put above a fire before you eat them, but the hell are they?

Heck, yeah. We DID need news. I noticed this was a fake news item (you must have changed it too fast). Oh well :) I didn't see it until now (about 6:20)

i am really confused why Joey made it a red border article. I have the conversation to proov it, and the server really was down. Everything in the article is true.

I should let everyone know, I know jack squat about making websites. I realize the irony here, but oh well. Anyways, I realize I could post it on some forum or something, but I just don't really want to.

There is a portion of the conversation in the newsletter, but it's not the Peeps part. Instead, it's the fake AP report that I wrote about exactly why it went down.

Well, then send it to someone (like me) who could make a website out of it and post it.
