The Daily Ping

P is for Ping. That's good enough for me.

April 1st, 2005


Over at 90% Crud, George is celebrating April Fool’s Day by making his site available via gopher.

I just want to point out that I had the exact same idea a few weeks back, I just never said it in public:

Ryan: So I think for April Fool’s this year, i’m going to mock up a press release for our web site (viewable only internally) announcing our company’s new Gopher site.

Paul: Oh, nice idea!

Paul: Finally!

Ryan: I’ll probably say something about how new business cards will be handed out with the gopher address…

Paul: You should also announce withdrawal of the website, given the WWW’s shaky foundation. Gopher is the future.

Ryan: Exactly.

Ryan: what would be really cool would be if I actually set up a gopher server…

Ryan: if only i had the time.

Maybe we could set up a Ping text chat room, and send everyone the address to Telnet to. ;)

Our prank was better, this kid got dumped on wednesday. So today he stayed home and sent an email to my other friend last night and it was like a suicide note. So all the girls thought he had committed suicide and they like freaked out. It was awesome.

...Because suicide is such a funny thing! Please...

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!
