capnmonkey: Curtis, far left
Best line from article.


Especially since there are only two pictures, one left and one right. Apparently two pictures constitute a group shot -- or maybe Drew is really a radical leftist.

To be fair, that guy used to be at the NBC affiliate until a couple of months ago.

It's simple: We are better than you because we pay $5/per month. We have better jobs, prettier spouses, smarter children and are generally more satisfied with our place in life because of that small little tag at the end of our name. We sit on the Mt. Olympus that is TotalFark, while you underlings can only gaze up at the greatness that is TF and hope to one day attain our level of panache.

The advanced technology behind fark is obviously the key competitive advantage to the sites success. No doubt the Memphis News crew are after it...as they should be. I'll bet you put the fark comment system into a quantum computer (once they exist) and we'll have the answer to life, the universe, and everything...

I firmly believe that when the apocolypse starts, it will start with some tourist from memphis in florida. and then the flying monkeys show up.

peck: Curtis says he's "99 percent sure" it's Phillips -- and is now attempting to pursue legal action, seeking detailed data from Comcast, to remove his doubts.

And thus, it's unlikely Mr. Curtis will be commenting in this thread.


The last time i saw a "Drew" comment in a thread it was just the opening post in the thread about the new rules and regurgatations of posting cleavage pics.

If you want Drew comments, as such, nowadays you go to booksignings or FARK parties or read 'em in news articles.

Drew is like God. You hear a hell of a lot about him in his church but you seldom see him there.

At the same time, Phillips, already a Fark member, logged into several other user accounts on Fark -- either ones he'd created or ones to which he'd somehow gotten access. Phillips also purchased, using PayPal, a paid subscription to TotalFark, a premium Fark service. The accounts all used the same IP addresses as the hacker. Busted.

Time out for Phillips and his alts, huh?

SchlingFo: I always assumed there was a lot of nuts-and-bolts programming behind the interface.

4 hours of designing the architecture, 12 hours of programming. A day or so tweaking the UI to the customer's liking. Assuming you've done an assload of scalable-social-site work before.

The current Fark design is probably pretty naive, so if you did it professionally, by caching the current day's discussion state data structures in application server memory, and doing all of the content processing up-front, you'd eliminate 99% of the current system's processor load and unnecessary latency between the app server and the database.

Add some Ajax to remove the requirement to reload the page to see new comments, and instead only send the newest comments instead of a megabyte of stuff you've already read through. Oh well, that'll probably take an extra day or two but it'll be worth it.

I figured I'd post just to post in the official trainwreck thread, and to express my interest in finding out what handles this guy posted under. Were they, perchance, Afternoon_Delight, Mighty_Dog or HellBent_for_Leather?

JASLaX42: I have no idea what is going on

If you'll scrape up some good "Fail" or "You're doing it wrong" pictures, I'll be more than happy to overlook that.

Just rest assured that someone did it wrong and, subsequently, failed.

No, quite frankly, this action is the first being taken against left-leaning Web sites that overly criticize this administration.

At some time in the near future, half a dozen Web sites will be monitored by the NSA as needed, to determine whether they are a threat to current policy.

So presumably the details should be in the public domain pretty soon. Unless they settle out of court.
