An italic pipe

Take a very good look at following 2 characters:  / (*1) and /. If you are familiar with a keyboard and a bit of html, you'll find out soon that the first is a pipe ( | ) between <em> tags, which is used on the web to display things in italic. The second is just a plain simple forward slash. Where am I going you think ? Well, I heard a story today from a colleague who once got a question from a friend asking how he could make the pipe sign on his keyboard italic so he could finally enter a website in the address bar of his browser. After all those stressing hours today and yesterday, this was the icebreaker for me and other people at work. We have a blackboard on our wall where we simply added this: http:<em>||</em> People who don't understand it, don't worry. Those who do: it was so funny this afternoon when we heard about this, I guess it's probably stupid when you're reading it. Nevertheless, I think this would suit in the 'horrible questions for a helpdesk' sphere. Oh yeah, and we also launched Expo 58 today. *1 If you are reading this on oerwoud, this doesn't have the effect I'm aiming at, you should look at the original post

Garfield minus garfield

Everybody knows the cat Garfield from the comic, they even made (horrible) movies about him. But what happens if we leave garfield out of the comic ? Quote from the site: the result is an even better comic about schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life. Especially this one is hilarious: http://garfieldminusgarfield.tumblr.com/post/29944829

Fun with tld's

I'm sure I'm not the only Dutch speaking guy who thought about this: registering tet.tn and then creating a subdomain so you'd get something like this:

dikke.tet.tn

It's a pity the .tn tld is restricted for local firms and is quite expensive also, otherwhise I'd just setup one page with a nice picture ;)
