As we have not seen them carrying such poles, then if they did, in fact, bring fishing poles, their bags, we may assume, are bags of holding?

Oh, my. Are there directions for making the tree?

I can't tell if this is a serious question or some sort of vague vagueness... so I'll just tell you how to make the tree. :P It's pretty simple; you just need parchment paper and melted colored chocolate. Just drizzle the chocolate in whatever shape you want on the parchment paper (on a flat surface) and let it cool/harden. It'll peel off the parchment easily and you can stabby stab it into the cupcake!

and presumably, since bags of holding have no atmosphere inside, the Poles are quite dead.

jjjdavidson wrote:Old Farts and First Computers: My first programming experience was on a Texas Instruments TI-58 calculator my parents bought me as a high school graduation present. Wikipedia says it was "Turing-complete," so I guess that counts.

I had a c64, and we had to program uphill in the snow, both ways just to run a simple program.


I first learned FORTRAN programming in college on my university's IBM 360 mainframe. Back then, we used punch cards to run batch programs, and waited around 5-10 minutes (depending on how busy they were) before we got our results back on a printout. You could recognize a beginner because they carried their card decks in their hands, usually held together with a rubber band; "real" programmers had programs that filled a whole box of cards.

When the department faculty discovered I was really good at programming, I got welcomed into the "inner circle", and was granted access to the "Time-Sharing Facility". That meant I was issued a special account where I could actually use one of the console terminals, write programs in BASIC, and store them on a disk drive somewhere instead of using punch cards!

I've since had access to an incredibly wide variety of computers throughout college and graduate school, so I never really had any pressing need to buy one of my own. The coolest one was a Xerox 1108 Lisp workstation that was assigned to me for my dissertation research; it had windows, menus, and a mouse long before Microsoft and Apple introduced those features to the general public.

I finally caved and bought a "skinny Mac" - the original 128K Apple Macintosh - when it came out, to use partly as a dialup terminal and partly as a word processor. I ended up buying the development kit and learning how to program it as well, although I never really got into it. . .about the only interesting thing I ever wrote for the Mac was a text-based adventure game (in the spirit of "Adventure" or "Zork") for my friends to play, where they had to figure out how to find and rescue a female friend from the rubble of our severely trashed dormitory building and escape before the police arrived. :D

In case you haven't figured it out yet, I'm old enough where, in 1999, the company I work for put me on a special "on call" list for Y2K because I actually know COBOL. :D

This is the best emote I have ever seen (though cupcakes are 100% free around here). If only it was wearing a molpy hat, I might never use another smiley ever again. Who can make a molpy hat for this .gif?

Also, after my mini-blitz I didn't see anyone post the OtherComic!

I had legos written out when I was talking about "my old stuff" up there, but just whittled it all down. But it's awesome you both brought up legos.

Yes, you do. Or not. Well, maybe. But, yes! Er, no! Possibly. Or definitely not, I think. But, still -- perhaps...

I had a c64, and we had to program uphill in the snow, both ways just to run a simple program.


I first learned FORTRAN programming in college on my university's IBM 360 mainframe. Back then, we used punch cards to run batch programs, and waited around 5-10 minutes (depending on how busy they were) before we got our results back on a printout. You could recognize a beginner because they carried their card decks in their hands, usually held together with a rubber band; "real" programmers had programs that filled a whole box of cards.

When the department faculty discovered I was really good at programming, I got welcomed into the "inner circle", and was granted access to the "Time-Sharing Facility". That meant I was issued a special account where I could actually use one of the console terminals, write programs in BASIC, and store them on a disk drive somewhere instead of using punch cards!

I've since had access to an incredibly wide variety of computers throughout college and graduate school, so I never really had any pressing need to buy one of my own. The coolest one was a Xerox 1108 Lisp workstation that was assigned to me for my dissertation research; it had windows, menus, and a mouse long before Microsoft and Apple introduced those features to the general public.

I finally caved and bought a "skinny Mac" - the original 128K Apple Macintosh - when it came out, to use partly as a dialup terminal and partly as a word processor. I ended up buying the development kit and learning how to program it as well, although I never really got into it. . .about the only interesting thing I ever wrote for the Mac was a text-based adventure game (in the spirit of "Adventure" or "Zork") for my friends to play, where they had to figure out how to find and rescue a female friend from the rubble of our severely trashed dormitory building and escape before the police arrived. :D

In case you haven't figured it out yet, I'm old enough where, in 1999, the company I work for put me on a special "on call" list for Y2K because I actually know COBOL. :D


FORTRAN? COBAL? Luxury! We used to dream of programming at that level. When I were a lad we had to assembly code using nothing but a football field covered in mastermind boards.
And after we'd finished, if we had but one yellow peg out of place, our dad would beat us with old newspapers and lecture us for several weeks about Ada Lovelace and send us to bed with no supper.

Don't just stand there... enhance!

ENHANCE!

Love this! There was some film where the entire plot relied on an image enhancement at the beginning, where they turned CCTV into a 3D image, rotated it, and noticed a bulge is someone's bag on the far side of the camera's view. I stopped watching at that point

"Enemy of the State" with Will Smith and Jean Hackman. Yeah, that moment nearly ruined the movie for me too. I consoled myself by watching the underwear models/saleswomen during that scene.

I was going to explain why the cow stories were funny.
Here's one of them
Spoiler:
A cow goes into a pharmacy and asks for a loaf of black bread. The pharmacist says "I'm sorry, we only have white bread". Says the cow "doesn't matter, I came on my bike"

If you didn't laugh, consider this:
You accepted a cow going into a pharmacy
You accepted a cow talking
You accepted the possibility of buying bread in a pharmacy
You accepted that being on your bike was a suitable reason for not minding having white bread when you wanted black

Yet you can't accept that this is a joke.
That is mind boggling and that's what makes it funny.

Not much of a berry person :/ Sorry. Plain buttermilk waffles are the best, with Mrs. Butterworth syrup!

Mastermind boards!?!? You were pampered and coddled!! All we had were bare bits we had to carry by hand. Big rusty things the size of cannonballs, they were, and if we so much as whimpered, we were beaten with cobalt rods and sent to live in Siberia, and we were still expected to make the cannonballs compile while we were gone, using carrier pigeons!

Newspapers...what are those, again? And if they're new spapers, how can they also be old?

Sounds like they would only be useful to oxy morons...or perhaps members of the Western Paradox Church. Of which I am the Patriarch. Or not. But maybe I am, though others have taken that title. No, that's silly. Sillier than being a female Patriarch? Yes. No. (Told ya I love waffles...)
