Journal: it does actually happen

Journal by dynamo

it took roughly ten years of random seeds to generate this outcome, but someone at work today actually asked me what my slashdot id number was, in the context of a contest where the lowest number wins. In return for this act of curiosity, I obliterated him by roughly 500,000 points. We took the battle onward to the next competitor, perhaps a much more formidable challenge.

We each took our cerimonial combat bows and it was ON! I shot a deadly series of sideways glances bounding off his keyboard as his fingers skillfully dodged them, sliding over to the mouse into a tight grab-squeeze-slide and click, landing a precise hit on the slashdot bookmark, and then with a smooth traversal into the corner of the window to end with a click on his own user id, and the sad realization that he had been defeated this day.

Beaten as he was by a much slimmer margin of 100,000 or so that time, it was a valiant effort. My hat goes off to his next of kin.
