How the hell has taco.com not sold to Taco Bell?

People occasionally email me about buying the domain milk.com from me. I used to respond to such requests with, "How much are you offering?" These days, if you don't mention a number, I probably won't mail you back. However, let me warn you that I like the name and I have a reasonably well-paying job, so it'll have to be a pretty damn good offer. Note that a number (in whole U.S. dollars) which includes fewer than 8 significant digits to the left of the decimal point does not constitute "pretty damn good" in my book. That is, if you're not offering $10 million, I'm not interested.

/me is not *me*.
//But I've had e-mail discussions with Bornstein.


It's not pizza. But, once-upon-a-time, I'm sure it could of gone for deep in the 8 digits.

I don't know if I've ever googled for 'milk'. But I google for 'MILF' so often, that everytime I try to type 'milk' it comes out as 'MILF'

Oldest domain still in use for what it was originally created for is probably nordu.net. Next is probably bbn.com.

symbolics.com is a sad little museum compared to the great Lisp machine company it was.

My first email was on hotbot. Eventually was force-migrated to lycos.com. Lost the password to the email i had and never managed to recover it, but i created 2 more emails. That was when "free" was the only option. And 10 meg space. Eventually it became paid only but people like me were grandfathered in. It recently re-opened for free emails. Still use the 2 addresses, 1 for interwebs, 1 for real life contacts and legal stuff. Lycos mail works well, never have issues with it.

Oh, wow. The man himself.

(1) I still like the site and would miss it if it were gone. Your site's photo gallery (mentioned above) is still my favorite part of the site. I always enjoyed (and still enjoy) your site's Mezzanine as well, though you seem to have blown up the link to it.
(2) I was disappointed that your name never seemed to come up in a list of presidential candidates this year. If Wikipedia is accurate, I believe you would have met the age requirement this time.

Does anyone else remember that website where you could ask a question and 4 different AI personalities would answer it? I remember one of them being Ayn Rand and another was some kind of robot that hated humanity. I think it was Forum2000?

I was trying to remember the name of an AI script that would auto respond in Usenet. And this was pretty early on, too. I'm not sure how many people actually got pranked, but a worthy attempt, all the same.

I loved that site. Hadn't heard of Ms. Rand until that point, her answers were hilarious. It was indeed forum2000.org.

With regards to Poe's law: the next step in the evolution of the Internet, is the people who grew up with it will be believe the sarcastic to be fact.

Every once in a while, I'll think about the fact that there is undoubtedly a number of ~18 year olds who grew up with fark as their surrogate father. That scares the fark out of me.

I miss happypuppy.com. Lord Soth's game downloads gave me plenty of time to waste (both downloading them on a 14.4 and playing them).

one can always tell when a new check clears.


No doubt. While I occasionally find gems on io9, much like Lifehacker, their in-depth reporting leaves much to be desired, not to mention their weak forum commentary. I don't get nearly the pathos and nerdboy angst that I do on Fark.

My old dial-up provider in '98 hasn't changed a bit.

I thought Ayn Rand was a robot who hated humanity.

Kibo had a website?

Had, and has. I has a Web site that doesn't even have a tilde in its address! It's got both consonants and vowels on almost every page!

I haven't updated www.kibo.com since about 1997. NOBODY EVER TOLD ME THINGS WOULD SOMEDAY GET OLD! 

Someday I gotta blow it up. I think I'll keep the "404" page though. I paid good money for those stupid little underpants (at Woolworth's!) just to photograph them once.


Holy crap, there's a blast from the past. I had no idea you were a Farker.

Not that it matters to you, as you have no reason to have any idea who I am.

Me too. It was like Fark-lite. Its simple graphics lent themselves to dial-up, and it was a great starting point for exploring the nascent web using my Netscape Navigator that I purchased at the computer store.

Nowadays, we call it FARK.com.

Wait... when was it cool? Dammit, I must've been out of town that weekend.
