  • Yah, I almost got kicked out of our computer lab in school for making in infinite loop.  It tends to make the computer choke.  Of course, that was the whole point.
  • Low said:


    This reminds me of about 100 years ago when computers first appeared to the general public and we were learning basic Dos programming. If you typed Line 10: Type/MakeItStop then shifted to the next line and wrote Line 20: Repeat Line 10 and then Enter, it would fill the screen with MakeItStop like above.
    Simpler times!

    And here I am slaving away with copy and paste  8->


    Ha. DOS would make this site disappear up its own arse!

  • Not even in death could Debbie Reynolds let her daughter have 48 hours alone in the spotlight.

    Nevertheless...

    If I were dead, could I do this?
  • You know I watched the 20/20 special remembering both George Michael and Carrie Fisher, and realized they had alot in common. Fame at a young age, substance abuse, depression. Both had troubled family histories. Fame, recognition, money..but at a cost of loss of privacy and surface love. Fame it seems is love from a distance, when they both needed real love right beside them..an anchor. Highest of highs and lowest of lows, the makings of a mental breakdown if not anchored.

    Well said.
  • John Berger's death, 2 days ago, is not the start to 2017 I was looking for. His introduction to art criticism, "Ways of Seeing" was exactly the sort of TV we no longer get these days - politically radical, and treating the viewer as an intelligent person interested in ideas. It's still on YouTube, though.

    Ways of Seeing was a great read, compulsory during my art college days, but I didn't mind at all.
    It's a re-creation

  • Just heard that Chuck Berry has died. Born in 1926, he was 90.
    On of the great rock n roll pioneers and father of the genre. A colourful character, still performing until his death. No stranger to controversy, he was arrested in 1959 and did a stretch in prison for having sex with a14 year old Apache waitress and transoorting her across a state line, which was more of a crime at the time involving a minor than the sex !
    No longer shall we see his ding a ling !

  • ¡Guau! Never would've guessed he was alive yesterday.
    If I were dead, could I do this?
  • The classic "no stranger to controversy" code for, "unpleasant man, involved in sex crimes"
  • So sad to see Chuck go, though he was 90 which is an almost unheard of age for a rocknroller. I saw him several times in the 70s including Wembley, he was a fantastic live performer and had a profound influence on the development of pop music
  • Ikutaro Kakehashi, founder of Roland, father of the TR-909,TR-808, Godfather of MIDI died at age 87
