by "only thing on tv" I'm intentionally referring to the web, albeit the web using Flash.

Kind of weird to see a new good Homestar Runner, and it "only" has 69k views...

I feel old. When I was in college HSR was "the only thing on tv" as in terms of an independently produced source of animated content. Everyone I knew quoted Strongbad Emails all the time. Trogdor especially, of course. It was huge.

Times have changed... probably most of the people who remember HSR fondly are in their late 20s or early to mid 30s. Oh well... lots of other stuff out there now...

what's the word when you hear someone say a phrase aloud like "and we can see they're #engaging with the #content" and you can just *hear* the hashtags

@grainloom @tindall The modern Jargon File also has the flaw that it's been solely edited for several decades by an asshole. I fully support somebody else taking over that work, even if their tech isn't great at first.

@mala there's almost certainly some kind of functional programming fedora you can now have, but can't mutate
