The Daily Ping

Not a toilet in the country has not been affected by the Ping in one way or another.

I remember when PCs were measured in megahertz!

That’s what we’ll be saying in a year or two. Really. AMD released their 1.0GHz Athlon chip today (although it costs a lot), and the Intel P3 version is not far behind.

It’s funny, because my first computer – a Commodore VIC-20 – ran at 0.5Hz, if I recall correctly. The Commodore 64 ran at 1Hz, and the 128 was the speed demon at 2Hz.

Do we need all this speed? Well, we might in the coming years. But I think a lot of it is just being crammed down our throats. -pm

Man, those last two comments are prophetic. Nice job, Tony and me!

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
