for the record, i am not the “original yoink” and nor was i this “fake yoink”
someone, fuckmustard i think, said how to steal someone’s username, so i wanted to see if it worked. it did, but i never changed it back and hadn’t logged in for a few days. so now i am stuck with this name, thanks to some change at wordpress.
Wait, wait, wait! Daniel is way off base in his rant. Darby clearly said she/he is the FATest texter in the history of forever. Since we can’t see a picture, I would be inclined to just agree and move on from there.
alord I can’t remember anything before this past Sunday so I can neither confirm nor deny those first two statements. But I suspect somebody’s been tellin you lies. Has Agnes been on here? Did she say anything about me?
And that’s not the type of silverfish I was talking about.
i need to say that i don’t understand the first part of daniel’s argument. for example, just because we haven’t played football since the dawn of time, it’s not wrong to claim someone’s ‘the best footballer ever.’ if you’re saying that you’re the best ____er ever, you’re implying you’re the best ____er since ____ing began. which makes daniel a casuist and a prick.
walter – i can’t remember where i heard these things. but i think it was trusty mike who told me – he’s the taxi driver that hangs around at my local strip club to take the dancers home when they’ve had one too many mint juleps. come on though. agnes must be one monumental woman to be married to a titan like yourself.
krasi – are you going anywhere nice on your holiday? how itsy bitsy is your bikini? (and don’t tell me you’re going on an arctic cruise (unless you promise to wear a bikini!))
If Daniel’s gonna put that sort of response, he should really check for typos, so he doesn’t type something like “but there was barley and service” when he means “barely any service”. Unless he actually want to mention the addition of barley to the service, in which case I question his understanding of the history of telephones.
In my opinion,(which doesn’t go far in here, I know, and I’m sure this will also start a debate.) I believe the name stealing had something to do with the person behind yoink’s name. If you look at the end of yesterdays post. You can see him/her get bored and carry on a conversation with the many yoinks.
I’m not even going to say who I think is behind yoink’s name. That will start WAY to much shit.
Also, Daniel is wrong about the origins of SMS. In the early days of digital mobile telephony, it was devised that small chunks of data could be regularly transmitted as test signals from phones to towers to refresh information. An example of this is the “cell info display” function, which tells you what town or suburb you’re in at any given time. Because these test signals only get fired through when there’s spare capacity in the network, they effectively create no extra demand or bottlenecks.
It was also realised in the 1990s that there might be a commercial application for this test signal, in the form of text messages between users. There was an engineering limit of 160 characters in the signal, so that became the size of a text message.
