Remember when it was the '00s and "burning CDs" was a thing and you sometimes needed third-party software for that and one of them was called "Nero Burning ROM"
I literally *just* got that pun
@kaye oh my gods, fuck. how did I not
@IrisKalmia They were too clever for us
*holds head in hands as word crumbles around me*
@kaye Well, thanks to your toot I just realised that I only got it partially all the time, only the Nero Burning part 🤣 ROM being written in all capital letters meant I ignored the last word. Great software BTW apart from the bloat they later bundled the installers with.
@kaye Oh, my. . .same here.
@kaye OH MY FUCKING FOR FUCKING FUCK SAKE SAME HERE.
The icon is a burning coliseum.
Oh my soul.
@kaye oh nooo
Also, CloneDVD features a funny cute sheep as its mascot.
Why a sheep you ask?
Dolly the sheep was the first CLONED animal.
@kaye this is the ajax dish soap all over again
@kaye holy sheeeeeeit
@kaye It's even worse/better.
Nero is a German company, in German the Italian capital is called "Rom"… it's a bilingual double pun /o\
@kaye I just had to look it up. 😅
@kaye there's literally a file called HALLO.TXT in the Nero installation directory explaining the joke, too!
@kaye omg. how could i miss this
@kaye I always enjoy seeing someone getting that pun ^^
Seems like only parts of that thread made it to my instance...
@anathem oh sad :(
@kaye in a true :T moment I just remember that the icon was the coliseum on fire, but I know that it didnt exist when Nero was emperor...
@kaye oh no
oooooooooooooooh my god
@kaye my jaw just dropped
@kaye Took me a year of working on its competitor, Toast with Jam, to understand that, too.
