That was a really interesting post, and a really fun test to boot. Good timing too, now that my audio system is setup :) I really hope you aren't pulling our legs though and they all end up being exactly the same.. By the way, are you going to normalize for stockholm syndrome?

That is just awesome.. I am not sure if it is back in Georgia, but I have a 101 shareware games CD from the 90s somewhere. I might send that in if I can find it somewhere in my spindles. It scares me to think how much data is "created" on the internet everyday. Is there a pipeline big enough to shovel all that to the internet archive, and how much could that possibly cost to handle the download of all the information? My mind is spinning just thinking about it.
"But I can't shake the feeling that we could we fail even faster if we optimized our..." That sums up the real question of so many challenges that people are facing today. How can we fail faster, and better? Not just in programming, but in life in general. We really need to embrace this idea of failure more, it is such an important concept of life. It is not something to be shunned or ignored, but recognized and cherished for what it produces.

@Uala: It is not about everyone person reading every single thing you post, but about the time when someone does finally read something you post, it being understandable enough that the point comes across. Kind of like the newspaper intern who puts quality after quality into his work, only to have it overlooked time and time again.. Eventually, when it is not overlooked and given a chance, won't the hard work shine through then? My other examples include references to The Day After Tomorrow, The Little Train That Could, and the beginnings of the internet :)
