BBspot Mailbag

Now you too can enjoy my Inbox without the annoying spam. Every week I get some amazing e-mail. Some amazing because of the sheer cluelessness of the sender, some because of the time and energy that went into crafting them and some are just simply amazing.


Not sure if I believe these Believers who claim to have ruined hard drives by freezing them in ice...

OMG OMG OMG I HATE YOU!!!! My new 300 Gig Hard Disk Drive is dead man I did that freezing thing on your site and now my CompUSA warranty won't even cover it. I've been up since 12 AM trying to revive it but all it does is sputter and spark. You shouldn't post false information on your site like that because computer iliretate people like me follow it!!!! 500 bucks down the drain!!! AHHH I'd been saving for 4 months for this DRIVE NOW IT"S FUCKED!!!

They're from AOL so you never know.

Re: the news about the quartercolon:

They can't do that - lots of people use it (the backtick) for Unix shell scripting and it is essential for finding the code address of words in FORTH. They should take scroll-lock, that hasn't been used since the DOS spreadsheet days.

These people are worried about cloning at Microsoft...

Yet another crazy discussion page.

I have no idea what story this A-OL is referring to...
