An Eternal Quest for Incremental Improvement

This is how you could be misunderstood on IRC!

Here some IRC snippets that I have recently read from

<anamexis> oh man
<anamexis> I was opening a coke, right
--> Beefpile ( has joined #themacmind
<anamexis> and it exploded
<anamexis> ALMOST all over my keyboard
<anamexis> but I got it away just in time
<-- Beefpile has quit (sick fuckers)
<anamexis> :<

IRC users should really be careful that you are not misunderstood by a late comer in the thread ;-)

Also, be clear on your questions. Else, you will be pissed off like this!

<mage> what should I give sister for unzipping?
<Kevyn> Um. Ten bucks?
<mage> no I mean like, WinZip?

And this is how people really misunderstand the topic sometimes ;-)

*** Topic in #doghouse is 'Our hearts are extended to the 17 victims of the recent internet fraud'
* Anubis has joined #doghouse
<Anubis> what fraud?
<Kadmium> You haven't heard about it?
<Anubis> no?
<Kadmium> You can read the full story at
<Anubis> omg wtf!
*** Kadmium changes topic to 'Our hearts are extended to the 18 victims of the recent internet fraud'

But, girls always find problems with facts and figures no matter how clear you state something ;-)

<Sui88> 67% of girls are stupid
<V-girl> i belong with the other 13%

Most of the begginers are annoyed with the acronyms that are used. Not understanding the acronyms will lead you to the height of frustration like this!

<studdud> what the fuck is wtf?

Some people give smart ideas so that you don't misunderstand the way of doing it, but you don't understand the whole idea by itself.

<reo4k> just type /quit whoever, and it'll quit them from irc
* luckyb1tch has quit IRC (r`heaven)
* r3devl has quit IRC (r`heaven)
* sasopi has quit IRC (r`heaven)
* phhhfft has quit IRC (r`heaven)
* blackersnake has quit IRC (r`heaven)
<ibaN`reo4k[ex]> that's gotta hurt
