ticalc.org Pending Files Reaches 1,000
Posted by Michael on 1 February 2003, 19:58 GMT

This morning ticalc.org's pending file queue reached 1,002 files, attaining an entirely new level of bloat.

Users visiting the File Upload Form were stunned with the news. From the inside of his Idaho retreat, TI-81 fanatic Brent Medelsvensson was seen wearing a tin-foil hat and shouting, "It's a conspiracy! They've been planning this ever since the pending load was 'heavy'!" After locking himself in his parents' bedroom, he could not be reached for further comment.

ticalc.org news editor Michael Vincent commented, "I have no knowledge of the whereabouts of the file archivers at this time." Off camera, he mumbled something about Pago Pago and grapefruit. Magnus Hagander, residing a short distance from the ticalc.org server, reported, "We've been told that the earthquakes are extending all the way into eastern Siberia."

Corresponding with this event, overworked monkeys on typewriters were seen to mysteriously print lists of ticalc.org staff members in no particular order.

Stay tuned to your Emergency Broadcast System for further details.

Okay, gollum... ;-)

I think you shouldn't have posted this as a fake news item right away. I think you should have posted it as a real item and later on, post it as a fake news item... or maybe I just missed it (I have a fever *cry*)

You must have some seriously deformed monkeys...

All animals have genetic protections against incest, in the form of pheromones that only entice mates if the pheromones are different but not too much.

Yes, they do live in Michael Vincent's house, and they also prevent him from being a functional member of society and programming quality Assembly programs.

Do you mean they prevent him from creating his quality ASM programs? or that they allow him too by being a dysfunctional member of society?

They live in my closet, typing up a storm and playing games on calculators they stole. They really raise a racket, especially like the time when one of them got a new high score on Snood.
