It's all about the pentiums!


100 Gig ram...

40 inch flatscreen monitor...

Personal tech support from Bill Gates...

T1 line for internet access...

What an awesome system!

I recognized many people in this song-from the ones who are running this one, to the ones who are running a 286...

From 1:05 to 1:45 reminds me of several people I know, and the rest of it totally applies to me! embed dosen't work for me...

Nit: Note that "a T1 line for internet access" is no longer very good...

Having one into your HOUSE is though! I don't know anyone who has one coming into their house. I know many people who still use dialup! Who are you calling a nit, you nit?
As in "pick", not "wit" BTW T1's were around 1.5 Mb/s Roadrunner cable is 7Mb/s. Not that impressive any more. Correct me if I'm wrong there West.
You're right on all counts. T1 is around 1.5Mbit/s. Cable is about 3Mbit/s and upward toward 10M. DSL's whole point was to get T1-like speeds over much less restrictive wiring, so it's also in that 1.5M and up range. "Broadband" generally seems to be "T1 speed or faster."

T1 is one of those things that USED to be a fast connection, but has become mostly ... obsolete. (Reminds me of my old 128Kbps ISDN link, which was really zippy when I first got it, and then as years (not too many!) went by I watched by less technical friends and relatives got faster and cheaper newer connection technology... (and cisco's very first connection to the internet was a 19.2kbps "leased line"...)

The record for home internet connectivity belongs to This Swedish Granny 40Gbps!

Meh.. I always thought Weird Al was over-rated. I think I might have seen something of his that I found genuinely funny but the rest just seems.. contrived, somehow. I know some of the songs are "filk" and as I don't know the originals they will lose something in translation, but when I heard "Addicted To Love" I thought "Oh, that's what the Weird Al song was about. Still... meh."

Yes, but he has an amazing vocal range. And IMO, he is a brilliant parodist. But, people's music tastes differ. I would have thought all the techies on here would have liked that, though...
. I don't guess I've ever paid much attentiont to his vocals. I'm usually concentrating on the video and lyrics (and YouTube is not exactly hi-fi). I can agree that he is a VERY talented writer. Has he ever done anything "serious?"
. Speaking of under-appreciated vocalists we were? , Cyndi Lauper has some great pipes. Too bad most ppl only know her by her radio hits.
I love Cyndi Lauper, I had the HUGEST crush on her when I was a teen, and I still do. All Through the Night, her best song, IMO.
