I thought it was brilliant as well! Although, the slashdot link to the poster they're mimicking is incorrect, it's this one:

Besides, all the haters are missing a very important point - they even fixed Zaphod's second head, putting it where it belongs!

(But seriously folks, lighten up... it's a bit of fun. Sheesh.)

"Me, I'm a third generation server farmer. My pappy's pappy started this farm way back in 2014. Then my pappy took over, and now here I am today." As the old sys admin slowly rocked in his office chair, a single orange strand of wire from a cat 5 cable hanging out of his mouth. "Ol'rack 314b has a bad sector, son, today I need you to go take it down. She's been a good server, but it's time you showed me you can take over this farm one day too..."

Yeah, well some guy had a talk here last month about something nuclear and he had some pretty bar graphs and even a picture of a monkey. It was quite entertaining because I was on schrooms but I'm pretty sure he (and he was wayyyyy smart but I don't know his name so you can't check it out for yourself) totally thought the problem wasn't a big deal.

You know, it pisses me off that these sites make snarky "Download an up to date browser" comments. I mean, if I was running IE 6 or FF2 or some shit, yeah, but when I'm using the latest, bleeding edge of another browser I basically get told I'm using a piece of crap? I mean come on, this elitist asshole shit has to stop, especially on a site that claims to be open to all to try. Why not word it:"currently only browser X and Y has these features" and leave it at that?

Sorry, but it rubbed me the wrong way.
