I know how it works. :-) I checked various things several days ago. My first computer code was written in 1970 and saved on pale yellow punch tape, but I am a measy enduser these days. :-) My uncle fixes COBOL problems for the Feds, 50 straight years of COBOL work now...

If I cared about a particular post being really anon (except of course for someone at the station checking my IP in the log), I'd log out from the account -- not a problem :-)

I suppose everyone has seen that you see spot the actual account name of a pseudonymous posting just by mousing over the pseudonym...

That's a nope... But I did learn how to make a broken icon thingie for an avatar!
Avatar Fri. 1/18/13 4:23pm G:

They could limit one account per IP. Haven't checked, but some sites do that.

However, I am sure that many of us have access to multiple computers. An account from each would circumvent a one-account-per-IP limit.

And that's without even getting into the skill area of concealing your IP by spoofing a different IP. (I've never been desperate to want to bother with that, but it is not hard to do.)
Avatar    Fri. 1/18/13 4:24pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Parq, if this system gets anyone to give up IE, it's a great success.
Avatar    Fri. 1/18/13 4:24pm Honey Water:

I'm glad they don't, Droll. And I intend to log out of my account on occasion *not* to post something I wouldn't own up to, but just to have the math problems back once in a while.
Avatar    Fri. 1/18/13 4:25pm Honey Water:

@G: What about a couple posting comments simultaneously from two different computers on the same IP -- I mean, hypothetically speaking?

My basic understanding is that each separate machine/computer ID's itself and is ID'ed differently, even if using the same ISP or connection. That's its "street address" on the WWW, so material can be correctly routed to the desired computer, which is a terminal within the whole WWW system.

Speaking of which, Jan 1 was the 30th anniv of the final implementation of TCP/IP, which led to our easypeasy WWW...

After becoming sentient (big shout-out to Kenzo!) and downloading Wikipedia and the CDC database, I briefly flirted with the idea of hijacking some gene sequencers and cleansing this planet.

G, The notion of identity comes from cookies, not IP address, because so many companies, universities, ISPs, etc. use virtual and/or private networks, which all appear as a single IP address from outside even though there are hundreds or millions of computers sharing it.

Besides, I can just open an "incognito" browser window and see that WFMU can't even distinguish between two windows in the same browser.

Avatar Fri. 1/18/13 5:14pm northguineahills:

My pseudo-ex (it's complicated) hates family guy. I'll watch an episode at least once, but most of the jokes are predicated on the unexpected and surprise, so, once you've seen it once, the unexpected/surprise is gone.

Avatar Fri. 1/18/13 5:16pm G:

my working hypothesis is that most popculture tries too hard, in some way or other (driven by the "popularity imperative"), and i just go with that as coming with the turf :) it still has plenty to offer!
Avatar    Fri. 1/18/13 5:17pm Dave B:

I agree. The formula has been exposed:

The secret to writing a good Family Guy episode is this simple formula.
Step 1: Start every joke with "You think THAT'S bad, remember the time I..."
Step 2: Mix two pop culture references that were popular before 1990 "...hung out with Michael J. Fox in the Mushroom Kingdom?"
Step 3: Your punchline should involve a sex joke or an attack on Bush that was rejected from The Daily Show.
Michael J. Fox: Oh, hi Peter! Is it just me or are these shrooms making you shake?
Peter Griffin: I think you have Parkinsons.
Michael J. Fox: Phew, I thought we contracted AIDS.
Peter Griffin (Grabs Fox): NO ONE MUST EVER KNOW!!!
Step 4: Fill up remaining 15 minutes with an entire shitty 80s music video

I think it's true of any show on tv, period. I like the British model of maybe 2 seasons of 13 episodes. Doesn't grow old, and goes out while on top.

@Bad Ronald: I worked on a project for OCLC in '95 using Netscape Navigator to browse the Internet and write abstracts of sites and subsite pages. I learned a lot of tricks back in those early days.

Me no fan of Family Guy too. In fact, I find it annoying most times. With the exception of the Simpsons (long ago fan), I don't care for any of the animated shows. Except the old 3 Stooges cartoon.

@ngh We've still neglected Doc Who (well, the new one). I did appreciate X-Files having the ability for the first few seasons to switch tone successfully between episodes. Even that has gone by the wayside with current shows.
Avatar Fri. 1/18/13 5:27pm Bad Ronald:

Dan Povenmire, former director of FG, went on to create a middle ground btwn FG and Sponge Bob called "Phineas and Ferb. He felt FG was too crass/blue and SBSP too G so he aimed for a "Bugs Bunny" type show that broadened the demos.
Avatar Fri. 1/18/13 5:27pm Mark S:

I think if you watch enough of "Family Guy" it reveals itself to be repellent, misanthropic, lacking in soul and highy derative of "The Simpsons". Just saying!l

NYC prices not withstanding, I prefer not to pay less then $35 (usually $50)($24/$35 in FL), when I have income. I like to tastes the tequila/scotch/mezcal (my faves), and sip a double fingers worth over an hour.

For the record, I put anchovies on anything remotely Italian pasta based (including blending anchovies into the sauce).
