The Daily Ping

The Story About Ping was about a duck, not this website.

If you’re looking for a nice diversion on the Information Superhighway, I believe I can direct your attention to Sharpeworld. Originally located via the ever-joyful Mister Pants, Sharpeworld is an odd clearinghouse of peculiar things. It’s like rummaging through a box of stuff in your attic. Assuming your attic is the Internet, somehow, which might not be a bad analogy.

Sharpeworld TV, which requires QuickTime, is recommended for at least the full Atari commercial from the early 80s contained therein. You can see what kinds of scenarios Atari envisioned its high-tech gaming systems and computers would fall into. Cocktail parties and the super challenging Super Breakout, for one!

There’s also the Before and After Museum, which I highly recommend.

Do give it a spin. It’s worth your time.

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!
