      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

"Wait, what am *I* doing at a conference on supercomputing?"

 

Actually, the best mis-quote was from one of my colleagues who was mis-quoted in the Seattle Times as saying "We're hitting over a teraflop of sustained global bandwidth!" We'll be giving him a lot of shit over that for a long time, even though he didn't say it.

What do you mean someone already came up with a portable hard drive device that stores music? Ours is due to come out next spring!

Here I am holding the key to our first entry in the automotive industry. Our new car is based on the Windows operating system and you can drive it with your mouse! We're still working on the anti-virus, however...

If GM had developed technology like Microsoft, we would all be driving cars with the following characteristics:

 

1. For no reason at all, your car would crash twice a day.

 

2. Every time they repainted the lines on the road, you would have to buy a new car.

 

3. Occasionally, executing a manoeuver such as a left-turn would cause your car to shut down and refuse to restart, and you would have to reinstall the engine.

 

4. When your car died on the freeway for no reason, you would just accept this, restart and drive on.

 

5. Only one person at a time could use the car, unless you bought 'Car95' or 'CarNT', and then added more seats.

 

6. Apple would make a car powered by the sun, reliable, five times as fast, and twice as easy to drive, but would run on only five per cent of the roads.

 

7. Oil, water temperature and alternator warning lights would be replaced by a single 'general car default' warning light.

 

8. New seats would force every-one to have the same size butt.

 

9. The airbag would say 'Are you sure?' before going off.

 

10. Occasionally, for no reason, your car would lock you out and refuse to let you in until you simultaneously lifted the door handle, turned the key, and grabbed the radio antenna.

 

11. GM would require all car buyers to also purchase a deluxe set of road maps from Rand-McNally (a subsidiary of GM), even though they neither need them nor want them. Trying to delete this option would immediately cause the car's performance to diminish by 50 per cent or more. Moreover, GM would become a target for investigation by the Justice Department.

 

12. Every time GM introduced a new model, car buyers would have to learn how to drive all over again because none of the controls would operate in the same manner as the old car.

 

13. You would press the 'start' button to shut off the engine.

yelrotflmao.gif funny! But what's puzzling me is why it took you 7 hours to find this thread, conjure up the thought, find the proper images, and PhotoShop the pic. You're slowing down, Dru... blush.gif
