Well look at that, the Library of Congress archived foobies too.

No mention of that time Drew invented Tabs and divided America forever. Prior to that debacle, "fair and balanced" on Fark meant that for every five greenlit artfully nude ginger pictorials, there then had to be a freckled fireman's penis. Every other link was either from eBaum's World, or a Tolkien-name generator. And we were happy with that. Those were simpler, better times.

Getting to not only meet, but sit down and talk to Drew for a few hours during one of his stops along the F*ck Cancer bike tour across NYS was one of the most interesting and well articulated conversations I've had in a very long time, and I'm glad that I had the opportunity to do so.

Not a bad website going on here either.

If Fark begins to smoke, seek shelter and cover head.
Fark should not be touched, inhaled, or looked at.
Do not taunt Fark.

That's the range that they have in their archive.  It's copied from The Internet Archive and 2001 is as far back as they have snapshots

/kinda annoyed about them only listing Drew

Fark is a community website created by Drew Curtis that allows members to comment on a daily batch of news articles and other items from various websites. The site receives many story submissions per day and approximately 100 of them are publicly displayed on the site, spread out over the main page and tabs (Entertainment, Sports, Geek, Politics and Business). It is a common place for morning zoo radio DJs, comedy writers and stand-up comedians to view, steal and remarket content.

I haven't perused the Archive.org site for Fark in a while. It's always interesting going back to the early days and seeing headlines that make you think "oh man, I forgot all about that" in both good and bad ways. Like this old discussion about just how creepy/pervy the ads for X10's remote cameras were getting.

Not so CSB: In early 1999 I had a friend encourage me to buy an X10  'starter kit' that came with two lamp modules, a remote, and a RS232 controller. The kit was fun to play with and I figured out a practical use for it. My apartment had a window AC unit, so I bought a module that could handle higher amps and used it to automatically turn on my AC about 30 minutes before I came home from work. It was great and worked perfectly.

Fast forward to 2002 when I moved and the new apartment had a larger window AC that used a 220 volt outlet. No problem, I'll order a new 220 module and have it shipped to my work address.The module arrived in a box that had the damn X10 logo plastered all over it and the women in the office were giving me the side eye the rest of the day. I wound up leaving the open box, the module, and the instructions in full display on the workbench in my office for a little over a week just so everyone got a good look at what I ordered. Never bought another thing from X10 after that.

We're still here 'cause we're paid mourners that are still waiting for our payment of a Guinness bar towel. I hadn't realised my fark account is the same age Fark was when it died.
