Who fucking cares. Suck my cock like a Penn State locker room Slashdot.
Who gives a flying shit? As if this time wasting fagsite means fuck-all.

ipad - 3 million in 80 days. 14.8 million in 2010. 15 million by March 2011. 40 million by september. Estimate to sell another 40 million plus next year. Those numbers are beyond the C64. By a factor of 2.5x in one year for the entire product lifespan for commodore. I think it's not just matched - it's crushed. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commodore_64 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ipad
Yeah but this bozo pocketed (for himself obviously) over 130k in today's dollars when he "made" Manos (he didn't even bother to rent a real camera). Compare that to a few kids who made Primer for a 10th of that (7k today - 1200 in 1966 dollars) - which is brilliant, and looks great : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4CC60HJvZRE I think the real story is the fact that the creator of Manos basically scammed everyone who gave him a buck, and then rubbed their faces in it with this "film".
Not really a polka - more of a march : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=14Mfmn7vN4g#t=73m40s
I don't think the inclusion of any amount of deleted scenes would help this pile of cow-flop make any sense ever. Although the director is plenty intimate with cow flop from a fertilizer standpoint, so at least he shot what he knew.

btw what is wrong with the text form? all my paragraph breaks never show up. How many do you need? 12? Dozens of forums and only this place removes them?
Xerox Star was the actual goal and it came out 2 years before the Lisa and 3 before the Mac - it was never a masses product, and I'm not even sure Xerox was thinking masses outside of enterprise (which while huge isn't consumer-grade masses) for the entire of the PARC project(s) that led to the Alto / Star. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xerox_Star As far as doomed - their whole PARC enterprise is funded from the base-level patents they made, and XEROX made a 20x ROI on their Apple investment that lead to the PARC demo that launched the Lisa and Mac. I don't think Xerox failed in the slightest, and I'm not even getting into Novell, Adobe, and a number of other companies that came out of it all. They only failed if you think that the Mac was their goal - I don't think it ever was. It was the Star and assorted office systems that evolved from it, as well as the fundamental tech that lead to it and a myriad of other companies and industries (printing, storage, networking, operating systems, systems integration, OOP and on and on). If you succeeded at one of these, you'd be called a good businessman. They invented and through many non-standard channels, propagated themselves into every device on the planet. Some 'fail'. If you're going to fail - you're not going to cause companies to change direction and lead to the creation of other fortune 500s - you're going to fail in obscurity. --- BTw awesome sig - made my folks (both former CS drivers chuckle).
