The Daily Ping

We've only had four major designs over our 11 year history.

The Internet Closes At Nine

It’s time to fess up: I’ve been, occasionally, thinking about making up false information about the Internet so people I know who are new to it don’t use it.

It’s bad. I know. I leave the moral judgment at the door.

My favorite one, by far, is telling people that the Internet is only open from 9am to 9pm every day and is closed on Sundays. It just won’t work. You go somewhere, it’s closed. I am also thinking of telling people that AOL doesn’t work on the Internet (“they’re incompatible”), CDs don’t work on the Internet (ahem), and the Internet requires a faster hard drive (not CPU, you’ll notice.)

Think it’ll work? It’ll take a miracle. Got any ideas about closing the Internet?

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!
