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.


Looks like a few people bought into the Paris Hilton Releases Tinkerbell Linux story on this discussion board...

I think it's actually kind of cool...


Here's a couple reader emails that don't really fit into any category, but I thought I'd share...

Subject: Rejected Sequels to Snakes on a Plane

Having unfortunately subjected myself to bits of a rerun of Attack of the Clones, Saturday night, I waited with breathless anticipation for Mace Windu's now famous line, "I'm sick of these m****r f****n' Ewoks on this m****r f****n' Death Star!", but guess it got cut for public broadcast.

As for me, I'm sick of Hamsters on a Train. 'cause, you know, really...

Yeah, that would be a cool quote for Mace.

you're prob going to get about a billion people opinions on these, so i'll [attempt to] keep mine short.

I'd still say Order of Phoenix was good even though not as good as 1-4. Order of Phoenix is the only one where i'm tempted to say there are just a few too many pages. get through the first 40% of it and then rock, rock on as normal.
My vote is Half-Blood prince is back on par w/ 1-4 (Read: excellent)

I've enjoyed the series so much that I'm kind of fearful that JK will somehow "ruin it all" with the upcoming last book, i guess we'll see. with millions and millions of kids and adults waiting for Harry to win it all, that's a lot of pressure on JK to make it all happy. i wonder how much of a rebel and non-conformist she is....

All Harry Potter, all the time.

Weekly Limerick

The winner of this year's Geek Limerick contest has volunteered to write a weekly limerick for BBspot. I haven't decided where to put it yet, so this week's I'll put in the Mailbag...

From: Seth

iTunes now offers movies! Whoopee!
You can't burn them to disc for TV,
 And the quality's less
 Than a DvD. Guess
Maybe someone will buy them -- Not me.


Looks like I missed a BBlooper in a BBlooper...

Subject: You missed a double BBlooper

No screenshot - it's on the site:

"1.6MHz Core" - "Price $1,169.00"

Geez, my Atari 800 was 1.77MHz in 1979, and the list price was only $1000!

14.1 in screen? Feh, you could use as big a TV as you wanted. And we didn't need any sissy DVD CD-RW or 40GB hard drive - we had the tape drive and the 90KB floppy, and we liked 'em.

To plagiarise Bill, "48K is more than anyone will ever need".

And the dead baby one keeps growing (sorry to the person who sent this in. I couldn't find the email after I uploaded the image, even Google Desktop Search couldn't find it)...

That's all for this week!
