learning something every day

Back in the Gopher hey-day, most things internet were knowable. There was only so much you could do with a bunch of menus and nobody had bandwidth to speak of. Now a days, there are more acronyms than you can shake an Amazon.com-sized warehouse of sticks at, and so it is with today's entry which comes from Michael, the YTMND or You're The Man Now Dog's which can be found here. According to the wikipedia, these are odd little graphics paired with a sound file that tile to fill your screen and loop endlessly. Some of these are racey or just plain trashy but my favorites include Chewbacca Sings and the funnniest Tom Cruise kills Oprah. Check them out if you have time to kill...

Funny, but I must point out the irony of Chewbacca singing with a Santa hat on. Everyone who's seen the Star Wars Christmas Special knows that wookies don't celebrate Christmas!

Either way, you have to be impressed with his vocal range.

Gopher...
That's a term I hadn't heard since my early days at AIS and had long since forgotten about....

Maybe I need to go back to it considering I'm O'fer on trying to get Chewbacca and Oprah to load!

i know they sometimes take a LLLOOONNNGGG time to load, but try again later. The Oprah one is worth waiting for.
