First paragraph, no less.
2002-04-04 05:27:20 PM  
Fark is famous for photoshops...say that 5 times really fast....
2002-04-04 05:27:30 PM  
Your data can be anything that you've added to your system - Word files, Excel spreadsheets, Photoshop images for Fark.com, MP3s ripped from your bootleg audio CDs.

Slowly, but surely, Fark will conquer.
2002-04-04 05:27:48 PM  
Bite the hand that feeds you!
2002-04-04 05:27:53 PM  
heheh...I missed being la primera by 2 seconds :)
2002-04-04 05:28:43 PM  
Free publicity. Will fark get farked by it?
2002-04-04 05:29:17 PM  
I bet the writer is a photoshopper. Remove your mask you mysterious man.
2002-04-04 05:29:45 PM  
geee... that came out of no where...
2002-04-04 05:31:44 PM  
Backups are for wimps
2002-04-04 05:35:46 PM  
Who is it? They're lurking here as we speak. His name is Robert Paulson.
2002-04-04 05:36:25 PM  
It seems to me that sooner or later Fark is going to win the award. When that happens, are we all going to get to go up on stage to accept it? Will each of us get the chance to speak? Will Jello Boy and Mytwocents be in the reunion episode? Who the hell will play Wil?
2002-04-04 05:36:54 PM  
I'm confused.
Are they talking about the awesome Drew Curtis' Fark.com or the recently launched Cosmiverse's Fark.com? I'll need to know where to post my next photoshop. :-)
2002-04-04 05:37:57 PM  
Ummm was that a pop-up from fark.com I just saw?
2002-04-04 05:38:06 PM  
You may all laugh at backups, but imagine what life would be like without a collection of cat pictures!

the horror!

Damn!! pretty soon it will be more popular than God......
2002-04-04 05:41:13 PM  
<obligatory whine>
I've submitted much better articles than this....
</obligatory whine>

...but I'll take the credit where ever I can get it.

And those cat pics are damn funny.
2002-04-04 05:41:24 PM  
Obligatory "ohgodno, here come a bunch of n00bs!!!11" in about 5...4...3...
2002-04-04 05:41:50 PM  
At least we are certain FARK exists.

The proof is in the pudding.
2002-04-04 05:42:30 PM  
I'll post it again, because that's COOL

"The occupants of your hard drive can be divided up into your operating system, your applications, and your own data. Your data can be anything that you've added to your system - Word files, Excel spreadsheets, Photoshop images for Fark.com, MP3s ripped from your bootleg audio CDs. "


2002-04-04 05:42:31 PM  
I enjoyed the 7 pictures of that DELL kid.
2002-04-04 05:44:06 PM  
Grand_High_Took Im not trying to start anything...I say this as a fellow newbie...but your account is from January 9th. What exactly constitutes a newbie?
2002-04-04 05:44:08 PM  
h0 h0 h0
2002-04-04 05:45:33 PM  
Wow...strike that Grand_High_Took ...the countdown part...i stopped reading to check your account date...sorry about that.
2002-04-04 05:45:39 PM  
hey that's craptastic
2002-04-04 05:45:49 PM  
WooHoo! They mentioned EXCEL. Represent!
2002-04-04 05:48:25 PM  
Carl Conrad I'd say a newbie is anyone who comes here, creates and account, and tries to have a non-flame conversation in any topic other than photoshop.

Or thinks the domokun humor is a new and refreshing idea :)
2002-04-04 05:49:18 PM  
Ok, whats with the pop-ups that are now happening here on Fark? Just want to know, don't have too big of a problem with it if it pays the bills.
2002-04-04 05:52:46 PM  
Hmmm...delivery indicates he is very obviously a farker. That sentence had all the fluidity of a cooking show host saying,

"When making cookies, one must be sure to use eggs, flour, sugar, chocolate chips, Uncle Joes's Vegeliscious dip, and baking soda.

Still, kudos to him, whomever he may be.
2002-04-04 05:53:50 PM  
creepy thing about this article is someone was actually reading it to submit it *Ack*
2002-04-04 05:55:21 PM  
CindyGirl and may we ask what you look like?
2002-04-04 05:56:09 PM  
Cindy - tisk tisk thats not very ladylike
2002-04-04 05:58:13 PM  
Man, 8-year old girls can be mean!

Cindygirl, the girls at school say you quit eating your boogers. Is that true?
2002-04-04 06:02:23 PM  
Yeah Cindy,
So the guys not Wil Wheaton....big deal, we cant all be a superhot action star like Wil.
2002-04-04 06:02:39 PM  
Looks like Cindygirl got sent to the principal's office. Now we look like tards.

At least I do - I've got a mirror right here.
2002-04-04 06:05:06 PM  
Damn, I missed something didn't I?
2002-04-04 06:05:21 PM  
"hrmm I wonder how i can make fark put a link to my lame ass story on its front page? I know!!! I'll mention fark and they'll all spooge on themselves with excitement about being talked about and I'll get an extra /n/-hits to my lame article and my boss might think im popular and give me a raise!"

/me pukes
2002-04-04 06:08:48 PM  
Fark is like a son to me.
2002-04-04 06:10:29 PM  
Wow, and it even came from EXTREMEtech.com!!!

How EXTREME!!!!!

I need a Mountain Dew.
2002-04-04 06:13:06 PM  
BUGS BUNNY: Hey, Gruesome!...didja ever get that feelin' that you was bein' watched? eh? That the eyes of strange, eerie creatures was upon ya? Look! out there! D'ya see 'em?"

2002-04-04 06:14:52 PM  
RobbieFal: That brings up a good question -

How big is Fark?

I'm guessing that Jesus never got more than about 20 mil page views in 2001.

And he couldn't have been that many MB - the whole Bible fits in about 1.5MB compressed.
2002-04-04 06:19:48 PM  
Trying to measure Fark is a cliche waiting to happen.
2002-04-04 06:22:08 PM  
Metalsill it's not creepy reading the article...it's called keeping busy at work. That and reading the comment thread about the Megadeth breakup...
2002-04-04 06:47:47 PM  
note to self: mention fark in any article you write, sit back and wait for hits to roll in.

2002-04-04 06:57:02 PM  
Hardly anyone has even heard of fark. I once asked my Grandma if she farked a lot and her face just got red and she strapped me with her belt. :-(

And don't forget to back up your porn.

Especially that hard-to-find midget lesbian nun porn...
2002-04-04 08:30:02 PM  
Sawbones: What's wrong with trying to have a non-flame conversation? There are a lot of old-time Farkers here who are able to hold intelligent conversations without insulting people who don't agree with them. As a newbie myself, I appreciate that.

Of course, there are always the disagreeable ones, and they seem to be more numerous simply because they're more annoying.

What was this thread about again? Oh yeah, Fark being mentioned in an article somewhere. One line... I'm so excited I think I'm going to need to be strapped down.
2002-04-04 11:31:16 PM  
comments are fun

how about the lesbian midget nun beastiality pron

can't beat it ;)
2002-04-05 12:20:16 AM  
with all this publicity and popularity, Drew should start another site called 'Bigger Than Jesus'

it worked for the B Sharps...

Fark was also mentioned in the March '02 issue of CPU: Computer Power User. It's got columns by Anand Shimpi and the guy from Sharky Extreme (again with the Mountain Dew!), etc.

There was a competition on building the best web access device for under $750. The loser's machine didn't boot and the editor's comment was, "To be precise, the thing doesn't work. As in blank screen. As in "Where's my Fark.com, big man?"

FWIW, the editor's name is Blaine "Bossman" Flamig, so if there's a Farker name of "Flaming Bossman", that's probably him. Nice magazine, BTW.
