Not funny, can't even touch The Onion.

Kenh: Nobody laughs at jokes they don't get.

Jph: More like "Nobody laughs at jokes that aren't funny."

Just think:

Someone spent time and energy writing that, creating the website, and is paying for bandwidth.

Oh wait, yeah, good point Woody, that is funny now!

taking the time is funny.... the subject is lame

I don't know I got a small chuckle out of the idea of an Oracle makefile becoming self aware. It would end up having the wit of a autist with dow syndrome.

I thought it was funny. Especially the part about using it to compile Gnome on Solaris.
2001-10-16 09:36:04 PM  
I guess it's only somewhat funny if you have spent hours trying to compile Gnome and XFree

lololol everyone knows a Unix C makefile can't aid in compiling the DBD-Oracle Perl module on HPUX gained total self-awareness!!

And what's even more astounding is that this so called "makefile" was put to, and succeeded in passing the Turing Test!! I mean, that in itself is just ludicrous!! LOLOLOLL ROFFOLOLOLLOLOLOL

When the other geeks decided what other systems they could have the "sentient" file work on, I just about peed my pants!! And I wasn't even sleeping!! "Xmms for my old 486!" "Eggdrop 1.06p!" "xfree86 4.0.2!" LOL Now *that* is comedy, chums! The Klingon symbol of respect for the lot of you! Now back to my AD&D modelmaking-- I've almost completed the whole of Tolkiens' creation!

"#> echo I am pleased to have joined the Earth as the second sentient race." LOL I will have to share that with my Instant Messenger friends, Smarterchild, and GooglyMinotaur! I am sure they will also "get a kick" out of that jester!

Now that is funny.

My Boobies !!! Long Live DB2.....

I thought the UNIX, Oracle nerds would like it?!?
2001-10-16 10:23:24 PM  
Fark Rules!
2001-10-16 10:26:29 PM  
DB2!!?? You've gotta be smoking some good stuff to be using something like that.

Perturbance: How about...

Turbo_Linux on an IBM S/390 mainframe?

(and, yes........ It's VERY GOOD)

it was mentioned today on slashdot that there would be no GNOME 2.0 for Solaris 9 ( that is, until this Makefile figures it out.
2001-10-16 10:50:34 PM  
correction, it would not ship with Gnome 2.0.
2001-10-16 11:14:42 PM  
chmod +777 Makefile
kill -9 Makefile

Say "hello" now, you little prick.
2001-10-16 11:15:37 PM  
Wait a sec. I want an edit function. I just realized that that was the beer talking and that post made absolutely no sense whatsoever....
