Very funny stuff Adam. See? I _told_ you FoRK could get better
if you got back in the game!

Wow. Were these actually in the original form? Or did you add them in?
That would be too eerie if they just happened to use the number 97%
don't you think?

FoRK is a "non-nutcase" newsgroup?? :-)
robot spy bees might be fun. Especially vast swarms of them.
I'd like to hear more about the orbital mind control frisbees too, if
anyone has a link.

So are we officially flaming now? Can I get my digs in?
This stupid list has been wasting away for months now.
There's almost no bits. There's very little news, other than the stuff you can
get just as easily on msnbc or infoworld. There's not much humour or
high level mocking. The fun people who used to contribute a lot have
all pretty much been driven underground by the crap that passes for
traffic around here. Remind me - what phase is this list in? Oh yeah, mouldy
and covered in cobwebs :-(

Three cheers!!! Adam is back!
