Got this from Slashdot today (August 25)

http://it.slashdot.org/it/04/08/25/1533213.shtml?tid=172&tid=95&tid=1

I'm actually scared of it, because it's not some "President Bush says today that terrorists could be planning to attack this nation using explosives implanted in kitty litter" type of thing. Just hold on, folks. Oh, there's also a possibilty that it MIGHT not happen too.

Sounds fishy like a hoax to me. But who knows, could be true.



and if it is, lets hope LF isn't in that "large chunk" :p

Actually.. that's exactly what it sounds like.

But it was on Slashdot! So it must be true!

I call bull****.

If LF's down tomorrow, I'll just account it on the fact that LF goes down more than a Vietnamese prostitute.

nah, i don't care too much, mainly becuase my dad put a stupid internet restriction on, so i can only go on from 2:00pm - 4:00pm and then again from 7:00pm - 12:00pm

Gee, everyone run for your lives :rolleyes:

But I wouldn't be suprised if it did go down, I mean, whats the point, people will take breaks from their jobs, and people won't get their p0rn like before

Ooh, Kain forgot the 'Imagi-nation' line.

But why did he quote himself? Excuse me for being stupid...


And about that so-called meltdown, meh, tomorrow's my birthday, so i guess i'll be busy anyway...

EDIT: oh, and what's the proof of this happening? It might have been mentioned in that articale, but my computer's acting up a bit, and it won't let me open it...

Yes, but the clock is screwed up so it says it was posted today but it was actually posted yesterday meaning the internet was suposed to go down today and not tomarrow on your b-day like you inquired.

Whew, Im so glad it didn't meltdown, but I was prepared:

I had the mouse taped to my hand, my keyboards letters was taped off, cause all I would need to use it 1s and 0s on the keypad. WD-40 was by my side just incase, and the clock was set upside down incase I bacame a bat.
And I set it up so I could still visit my favorite web site.
