Re: "Malamanteau" discussion

Dammit. Every time xkcd mentions something related to Wikipedia, somebody has to rush over there and edit it. Then their edit gets removed, and people complain about censorship, how Wikipedia isn't really the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit, how admins are corrupt, and how Wikipedia's idea of...

Is it only my school that makes pep fests mandatory? Like, they put teachers on all the exits to make sure you don't just leave and go home?

Re: "Urgent Mission" Discussion

Sure, we could stop dictators and pandemics [...]

I don't like the wording of that for some reason. It's... combining two meanings of the word "stop" or something. Like combining "I stopped the car" and "I stopped smoking" into "I stopped the car and smoking."

Re: Zip File Passwords in Vista

I'm not sure about Vista itself, but 7-Zip is free, open source, and lightweight and can encrypt archives with 256-bit AES. Honestly I would just use that, especially since it can open archives that Windows alone can't.

Re: "Two Mirrors"

If you actually do this, what really happens is Douglas Hofstadter appears and talks to you for eight hours about strange loops.

Honestly I'd love for Douglas Hofstadter to come explain certain parts of GEB to me. I really think you have to be smoking something to understand some of it.
