tjsanko - new member?

By Cactus Pete ·
Thanks for letting me know that I punch like a girl. But I wonder what your point is.

For all - here's the email he sent:

One of your fellow TechRepublic members has sent you a private message:

From: tjsanko@...
Subject: You puch like a girl...
Wrist straight, and turn your fist over and you'll see the power increase in your punch, but I like the attitude...



Now, Tim, I have never met you, have never heard of you, and never even participated directly with you in a discussion here. What's your point?

Thanks for letting me know where you work. I happen to have some good ties with that company.

I'll give you a chance to explain what you're doing before I take this further.

Everyone, are you getting the same types of emails?

I think he is commenting on your animated gif

by JamesRL In reply to tjsanko - new member?

where the person (is that you?)does kinda punch like a girl...

Certainly not the way I was drilled for hours. But hey nobody wants to hear about that boring stuff.

Can't say I have gotten anything similar. But I'd rather read dozens like that than one more from Donkey@

Rather a flailing motion in the video.

Might work well with a flail or a mace though...

I see. Yes, I suppose that's the idea.

Actually, this is a clip from the movie "Office Space" which I nabbed from someone else.

Y'know, I never look at my own profile, so it was hard to even remember that being there!

The recent rash of weird postings from new members makes me first doubt them, then think.

Thanks guys,

Uncultured posters

by Montgomery Gator In reply to Ah!

These new posters who do not recognize the scene from "Office Space" are uncultured boors. "Office Space" is one of the greatest and most culturally significant movies in the last 50 years, particularly for IT workers, and cubicle dwellers in general. The scene in the gif, where they trash the troublesome printer is a classic!! :-)

Thank you

by Cactus Pete In reply to Uncultured posters

And youknow what? I might start hitting like a girl, too, had I just punched the crap out of the belly of a printer. That would really hurt!

That's what I remember from the first time I saw that scene - thinking aloud (along with all my buddy geeks watching) how painful it would be to actually carry out the violence as depicted!

as noted

As someone already noted, it's gotta be your Office Space animated user icon. More to the point, I thought it was a hilarious message to send you, and wish I'd come up with it first. If I had that user icon, and tjsanko had sent it to me, I'd have had a good long laugh.

Take as the good, clean fun it seems meant to be.

But you have to admit, if someone, out of the blue, wrote to you and said:

"I keep clicking, but it doesn't work!"

...what would you think? Especially if it was a double-entendre. It just had me going in the completely wrong direction. Just a bad few weeks to catch me off guard!
