Frak the Theory of Everything, we finally have a useful equation for explaining the true nature of cyberspace. Behold, the Theory of Internet t-shirt (AKA "Infinite Monkeys 2.0"). All proceeds from the sale of the ToI shirts benefit the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which indirectly and retroactively benefits Steve Jackson Games. There's never been a better reason to buy.

How can we have an Internet t-shirt without the famous "pipes" that carry the data from place to place? Or, were the pipes removed to build the bridge to nowhere? Chas

They used too be in the walls, hidden from the casual observer.

It's in all BIOS and it allows you to adjust the flux line width or density.There would be a scope and some instructions there.Here is where you would see how the chip records and where you adjust the DC frequency for infinite or even higher.Infinite would be a particle of time as the smallest hz.There might be only one virus there and that would be the virus that the hacker looks for first when you're on the Internet.

You miss the standard BALTHOR. Our decrier is one in the crow's nest, or the point, or the force protector. He looks out for the main force. While we all trundle ahead, he looks to the sides, and back, and further ahead. He signals what we do not see, our noses to the ground. How can we know what he sees, when our eyes don't. Be still. Listen. He does look out for us. Though we may not understand, for our carriage, he does care enough to decry for us. edit to add: Only, I wish to hell that he would pay attention again to the spacebar.

BALTHOR brings a smile to my face. So did both yours, and Seanferds replies. :D

hoping the same for you. I don't see your avatar as much lately, either. :)

I miss being here as often as I used to be. When I am here, I don't seem to run into either of you as much as I once did. So, hello. Hope these days are finding both of you well.

That was good. Compared to the scrawl of my crayon, yours was calligraphy.

As I understand your view, and would agree with you in most cases, if not all. Yet, I do not understand why this might not be Balthor's best post to date, at least that I've seen. In the event that I am unclear when posting, I do not intend to mock our Balthor, if that is what you might perceive from my postings. I enjoy Balthor on several levels. In fact, it would be quite easy for me to step outside of consensus reality/ language usage, but at least on this site, it would be counter-productive for me. I do not know if this actually addresses your comment, it is just a shot in the grey. ps: Spaces are an innovation in written text. The ancients did well without them, but then, they weren't dealing with the oddities of modern languages. ;) edit: final >br

Instead of a monkey, they should have Al Gore's face, because you know, he *IS* the (cough) Father of the Internet. Wait, that would just be the face of a DIFFERENT monkey!
