Whenever someone puts a post of mine in the Comedy Goldmine I print it out and put it on my refrigerator.

Yeah, Dave has talked about this somewhere.  I wasn't able to find it with the couple searches I ran, but if my memory serves me correctly (and that's a bit of a gamble with this one), it's somewhere on The Atlas board.

I call them "spiders", wiki calls them Web Crawlers.
Quote
A Web crawler is an Internet bot that systematically browses the World Wide Web, typically for the purpose of Web indexing. A Web crawler may also be called a Web spider,[1] an ant, an automatic indexer,[2] or (in the FOAF software context) a Web scutter.[3]

Web search engines and some other sites use Web crawling or spidering software to update their web content or indexes of others sites' web content. Web crawlers can copy all the pages they visit for later processing by a search engine that indexes the downloaded pages so that users can search them much more quickly.

Quote from:   Martha Gellhorn for The Atlantic 1961
The unique misfortune of the Palestinian refugees is that they are a weapon in what seems to be a permanent war...today, in the Middle East, you get a repeated sinking sensation about the Palestinian refugees: they are only a beginning, not an end. Their function is to hang around and be constantly useful as a goad. The ultimate aim is not such humane small potatoes as repatriating refugees.

I printed Lief's timeline masterpiece a couple years ago. I'm accustomed to reading walls of text on my computer, but that was too much. Tongue

Be honest - you're the one printing atlas forum pages en masse, aren't you?

Once I finish writing "Hobo Orgy Guy & Blondie", I fully intend to print it out, and create a bound copy.

What is your opinion of this thread?

Watch Dave being briefed by the mods.

Being a moderator is basically like one giant party.  Except you're the one ruining the party and everyone hates you.
