For hardcore geeks only! And even then not very funny.

Sadly, I understood most of the jokes.

/hangs head in shame

The word 'goldmine' is thrown around so much nowadays.
2003-03-25 05:43:50 PM  
Hard drive'n
2003-03-25 05:44:00 PM  
Well, it was something alright.
2003-03-25 05:45:04 PM  
I'm sorry to say I actually got all of these jokes.
2003-03-25 05:45:39 PM  
I got the jokes, but they weren't overly funny.
2003-03-25 05:45:41 PM  
2003-03-25 05:45:42 PM  
I got all of the jokes too...damn it
2003-03-25 05:45:48 PM  
I think this goldmine is on its last nugget.
2003-03-25 05:46:22 PM  
I dont think we need an update of every single time that SA posts something like this. Most farkers read SA, right?

2003-03-25 05:46:45 PM  
DDR RAM was by far the best, too. :)
2003-03-25 05:46:52 PM  
I laughed until I stopped. not.
2003-03-25 05:47:36 PM  
Chips, dips, bits bytes and nybbles. It has always sounded like a party to me.
2003-03-25 05:48:02 PM  
Dork humor.
2003-03-25 05:48:11 PM  
Yeah I actually thought DDR RAM was pretty funny... everything else = BUNK!

Even I wouldn't poop on those!

2003-03-25 05:48:31 PM  
I laughed until I realized it wasn't very funny.

The phriday update on captioned movie, now that had me LOLing for minutes on end.
2003-03-25 05:49:55 PM  
FOR FUTURE REFERENCE: Just because it's under the "Comedy Goldmine" section of, does NOT mean that it's funny. Or Farkworthy.
2003-03-25 05:49:58 PM  
My version of hash table would be much different....
2003-03-25 05:50:44 PM  
decidedly un-funny
2003-03-25 05:50:44 PM  
wow...looks like the words comedy and goldmine have taken on new meanings while i was in the bathroom...

Tech term most learn quickly.

Attaboy, Sweetleaf.

Whuzzup with the Lucy in the tar pit, though?
2003-03-25 05:52:38 PM  
Wow, pun circus parade! I want to kick them in the nuts for sucking so badly.

Goodnight, everybody!
2003-03-25 05:53:50 PM  
Yeah, all of them were quite unfunny - except for Lucy in the tarpit, which just confused me.
2003-03-25 05:54:27 PM  
Hey, I laughed at that one Sparkey.
2003-03-25 05:54:41 PM  
Next post please
2003-03-25 05:55:06 PM  
LOL Sparkey!!
2003-03-25 05:55:13 PM  
Unfortuneatly...I didnt know what "|337, leet" was until the other day even though I had seen it mentioned 39487389748937473 times. I was always too embarrased to ask :P

Elite...I always thought it meant something along the lines of "loot" as in "money" or something...

/not quite geek enough, yet still pathetic
2003-03-25 05:57:25 PM  

Even funnier than the real link!

Tar, as in the *ix tar archive program. Tar stands for tape archive.

That was stupid. You're stupid.
2003-03-25 05:59:47 PM  
I'm glad that internet access isn't paid for by the click and that clicks are unlimited.
Hate to think of wasting one on that....
2003-03-25 06:00:00 PM  

Okay, thanks for explaining... I guess I'm not as geeky as I thought I was, hooray!
2003-03-25 06:00:04 PM  
that was a complete waste of my time
2003-03-25 06:00:23 PM  
SA can do puns well, like the "misheard headlines." This isn't one of those occasions. Not as bad as the cats one though. Was that some sort of inside joke in the forums that all us cheapskates don't get?

And Sparkey, that was classic.
2003-03-25 06:00:38 PM  
Comedy Slagheap
2003-03-25 06:00:59 PM  
I almost laughed, but then I didn't.
2003-03-25 06:03:17 PM  
That was sad.
Why doesn't Fark have it's own PS thread about computer terms, and show those snooty goons who control teh funny?
2003-03-25 06:03:34 PM  
Why was that supposed to be funny? I either don't get it, or I do get some and thats why it doesn't make me laugh.
2003-03-25 06:04:15 PM  
Its a file cabinet in an electric chair! Get it?! It's an EXECUTABLE FILE! (har har)

/not funny
2003-03-25 06:04:42 PM  
Comedy goldmine? More like dumb ass jokes. Jeez.
2003-03-25 06:05:05 PM  
that was just downright funny...

is what i would be saying if that were true, but it's not true, it's not true at's quite untrue, as a matter of fact.

i "got" all the "jokes", but they just weren't funny at all. SA GOONS, i expect a little more from you guys.
2003-03-25 06:05:56 PM  
dear god this sucked
