20 Jan 08Well, that was fun

Here’s my first in a series piece for Macworld on Macworld Expo, The Show and Its Sweaty Attendants.

Please read it and have it memorized by tomorrow. There will be a quiz.
Site was down for a couple of days. Not robot-related, just a Macworld hangover.

    Posting at this hour on a Sunday morning takes the fun out of claiming FIRST!!!!

    (See? That wasn’t fun.)

  2. digitalcowboy says:

    I could probably get all of the top 15, but I’m not going to try. I’ll check in tonight to read what sparseness is here.

  3. digitalcowboy says:

    OK, just one more. (People sleeping in on Sunday should have to work at the comments. If they were hardcore and God-fearing they’d be monitoring CARS from the iPhone while in CHURCH! Like I am!)

    MacWorld. Hangover. Koolaid.

    Just gettin’ that out of the way.

    Felt like a lot longer than a coupla days. I was worried the robots had silenced you! No, really.

    Now to go back and read the posts from the past week… I hope they’re worth it. I’ve been itching to see whatever was released at the MacWorld wossit.

    Whadaya mean – where have I been?

    4th! No podium…

  6. Louije says:

    In a way, second.
    In an other, fourth. Or is it ?

  7. Louije says:

    You guys are quick reloaders. I’m so wrong so quickly.

    John, did you get that exclusive interview with Chris Breen’s hair
    that we all have been waiting for? Well. I have at least. Had to be
    in the top five interesting things there.

    Just a couple days?

    Cheap keyboard — wore the ‘R’ off hitting ‘Reload’.

  10. digitalcowboy says:

    Shhh! He’s praying!

    Y’all are insolent, dammit!

  11. Nxxx says:

    Oh hear us as we pray to the,
    Blessed John on CARS TV.

    I have to admit it, I was worried for a while. I was figuring it was retribution by the robots for tipping off the mac world to their evil plans. Glad to see that isn’t the case.

  13. Moof says:

    Btw, I vote CARS as having the best MW coverage BY FAR. Nothing else compared!

  14. Seano says:

    I don’t believe it. I know this is really robot related, and now Moltz is a Robot. Don’t believe the robot press when they tell you that the robot haven’t taken over.

  15. CB says:

    Ah Sunday. Such a beautiful day for a CARS post. Really. It completes the day of rest.

    To hell with the robots. John is back. That’s all the matters.

  16. Ace Deuce says:

    Pathetically, I feel as if I were locked out of my home for a few days.

    “I don’t believe it. I know this is really robot related, and now Moltz is a Robot. Don’t believe the robot press when they tell you that the robot haven’t taken over.” This sounds like something an undercover evil robot would say to feign innocence and brag at the same time. Seano is probably one of them.

    The evil robots have not been fully eradicated, but neither have they taken over. To prevent that, we must be vigilant. These kinds of robots act in violation of the Zeroth and First Laws of Robotics; they are not the fun, happy robots that we love so well.

    One way to flush out an evil robot is to tell a long shaggy dog story or a really bad pun. If it doesn’t groan with disgust, bingo! (They usually laugh politely.)

    **Insert appropriate joke about the site in a snowstorm here.**

    Actually, that was some of the clearest writing in a while.

    “Not robot related” he says. Right. Like we believe that!

  18. Steve G. says:

    I think the robots got to him.
    Maybe holding him hostage and making him post something like that.
    Either that, or he ran out of Pudding.

  19. Lies! Mac hardware problems! These people never admit these type things!
