Ennuipoet: It's what I suspected, we're dudes, we're middle aged and we're nerds.


I guess everything is on the net somewhere.  Interesting to me that I live in the Atlanta(#1city) but I have never met another Farker.  The few parties have been held on the other side of town, which can be a 60 mile drive.  On the other hand I hang out in pool halls where the beer is cheap and they let me smoke an occasional cigar, so that could explain it.

Dumski: The mysterious and slightly worrisome absence of Gwinny


I believe that Gwinny is vacationing in France.

Oh. Nice. Yearly? What a hardship to bear. When she gets back she needs to grab a few collars.

First and last time I was in France was at the Charles De Gaule Airport on January 21 1976, then Heathrow the same day. Saw the inaugural flight of the Concorde. Loudest takeoff I have ever heard, but what a magnificent site. I was on my way back from Nigeria where my parents went to be missionaries for the next 20 years. I finally was kicked out of the house.

So the traffic stats look legit, but the rest of the information is skewed at best. There are a whole hell-of-alot of truth stretchers on Fark and everywhere else on the intertubes, so other data is collected how? Trackers? I know not of these things..
Well they can't get my info. Heheh.

we (pural since i'm a farker) just had another fark party in new orleans which i didn't attend. they are held in bars, i don't drink, don't like being around drunks, didn't have the $50 to get into this last one where free drinks were not a benefit.

oh well. this will do for now.

That is correct. I'm back now though!

No we weren't. We appreciate you too. It's just that Gwinny is so loveable and efficient in her assignments. No need to grab your collar and give it a shake now that she is back. Please continue to gift TF to deserving farkers.  Thank you.

The way I understand it, it doesn't show that Fark's users are middle-aged nerd dudes, but that middle-aged nerd dudes are searching the word "Fark" on Google about 20 times fewer than during their all time high in what looks like autumn/winter 2004 (I blame people googleing "what the fark?!" after Bush got reelected).
The positive spin on this is that Fark users have figured out how to find the site without using Google.

Remember that time one website had to add a fat disclaimer saying some like "this isn't Facebook, this is an article about Facebook" to one of its articles?
That article had become the first Google result for "facebook login" and the article's comment section got flooded by comments complaining about Facebook's new design and that the old accounts weren't working anymore.
I guess I could use Google to find the Fark thread about it...

Not by a long shot. :)

One of my guiltiest wins (apologies to phugue) is this contest. I didn't have TF at the time and figured it would take some drastic measures to enter that contest after it went live and get the win.

It was a close one.

Sorry about that misspelling, phugue. I think I might have done that the last few times I tried to spell your name.

My first online experience was with Plodgy in '92.  Usenet was still fun then.

Going to the Audio Edit portion of the forum, are there any good, free audio editing programs out there?  Preferably of the multitrack variety.  The lapper I had with all the goodies is dead.  I've got a copy of SAW Pro somewhere, but that only works with WAV files so you've gotta convert MP3's and that's a pain in the buttocks.  Any help would be appreciated.

Well, ok.  She's also nicer than me.  I mean, not by much, but still.

Well, it's been a fun month. Thanks Eeek! for the gift of a month of TF! I submitted to a lot of PS contests. I had fun, and I even learned some useful things about workflow and techniques with my old and trusty photo-editing program.

I hope the user-generated content that I created (and hosted) was helpful to Fark. I like Fark (other than the trolls in the threads), and I think it's good for Fark to have lots of participation in the PS contests.

Ciao!

Thanks oldernell and Herb Utsmelz!

I downloaded Audacity and played with it a little last night.  Downloading Audition as I type this.  That, I think is the version I had on the old lapper.
