About that thread that never dies...
I am afraid to click on it because it takes about a week to load. I have high speed internets tubes too. :scared:

3. Holy shit...
I clicked on it yesterday and I thought my computer was going to call 911.

I am nothing without this outrage.

6. I wanted to check it out...
I felt like I needed to know. :eyes:

It was dangerous. I suggest you do not venture into the thread of doom.

8. I will be at a hotel next week, they have computers for the quests to use.
If it is still here I will try it on the hotel computers.

I rather break their computers then mine.

7. Then heed this advice:

DO NOT

click on "View All". Click on the thread title only, then click on individual posts, hit "esc" when their post is there and go back to the previous view/page to click on others :)

12. Unlike the lemmings around here,
I use the browser Opera :P

You can tell it to show you the stats as it downloads a page. I had to time it for that part, but first it downloads all the text (the document) and then all the graphics, so you can at least read a page while the images show up :)

13. I have not clicked on it either, and at this point probably won't ...
I don't want to destroy Charter Internet Services.
