I need a good boffin.

Post by Heston » 03 Jul 2010, 11:02am

Everything on my IMCT page has shrank, words are really little and hard to read. Other pages aren't like this, I may have pushed a funny button by mistake. Any clues?
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

That's what that means. The Ctrl button and the + button.

If this had been "I need a good boffing," I wouldn't have responded.

I did consider typing boffin', but my technical issues would never have gotten resolved.

I still don't understand why you think hobbits know anything about computers.

The funny part is that I wasn't consciously aware of that.

My dear neighbour, Mr. Tumnus often helps me with techy issues.

(11:17:17 PM) creets: I would do Mr. Tumnas.
(11:17:20 PM) creets: just sayin'.
(11:17:29 PM) eumaas: Yeah?
(11:17:42 PM) creets: yeah, he seems like he'd be really nice
(11:18:02 PM) eumaas: A faun's a sort of satyr, right?
(11:18:08 PM) creets: yeah
(11:18:29 PM) creets: but like
(11:18:33 PM) creets: he'd make me tea and shit
(11:18:41 PM) creets: crumpets and suchs
(11:18:43 PM) creets: such*
(11:18:50 PM) eumaas: Yeah, sounds like kind of a pussy to me.
(11:19:04 PM) creets: I'm kind of a dick though
(11:19:07 PM) creets: so it'd work
(11:19:10 PM) eumaas: a proper satyr is all about drinking and fucking, you know?
(11:19:17 PM) eumaas: And playing the pipes.
(11:19:26 PM) creets: yes I know
(11:19:34 PM) eumaas: like Bill Hicks's Goatboy
(11:20:07 PM) eumaas: Tumnus is just kind of a pussy
(11:20:17 PM) creets: so?
(11:20:36 PM) eumaas: I just don't see what you see in him
(11:20:50 PM) eumaas: I think he's bad for you. You should stop drinking his tea.
(11:21:00 PM) creets: I'd need variety in a world of Sean Connery/Burt Reynolds mermen and Bruce Campbell Centaurs
(11:21:01 PM) eumaas: Stay out of that cupboard.
(11:21:10 PM) creets: and Minotaurs who make me feel like shit
(11:21:10 PM) eumaas: Well
(11:21:18 PM) eumaas: I mean, he'll make you feel better than the minotaur
(11:21:21 PM) eumaas: since he's so pathetic
(11:21:24 PM) eumaas: but come on.

...

23:22 creets well
23:22 creets it's like
23:22 creets after
23:22 creets I'd be all "that was ok. now make me some tea"
23:22 creets "and shit."
23:22 creets "crumpets and such"
23:23 eumaas scones and shit
23:23 eumaas "biscuits"
23:23 creets but then after tea-time we'd cuddle.
23:23 creets or
23:23 creets "snuggle"
23:23 eumaas No bagels, though. I bet Tumnus hates jews.
23:23 creets then I'd do the minotaur and make him watch.
23:24 eumaas Whoa
23:24 eumaas Now you're fucking the minotaur?
23:24 eumaas I thought he made you feel bad
23:24 creets just to show tumnus what's what.
23:24 creets and because I am a woman.
23:24 eumaas Man, you are a cruel-hearted bitch.
23:25 eumaas I bet he'd cry.
23:25 creets then I'd be like "I love you tumnus."
23:25 eumaas That is cold.
23:25 creets and all like "make me and minotaur some scones?"
23:26 creets and he'd totally do it
23:26 creets dude
23:26 creets I should go to Narnia and fuck everyone
23:26 creets I'd be queen!

...

(11:37:26 PM) creets: it just depends on how mouthy tumnus gets on certain days
(11:37:33 PM) creets: like he can be a total bitch sometimes
(11:37:40 PM) eumaas: He does seem like he could get all passive aggressive
(11:37:41 PM) creets: all demanding respect
(11:37:57 PM) creets: yeah
(11:38:01 PM) creets: through notes
(11:38:14 PM) creets: he demands respect on post-its all over the house
(11:38:20 PM) creets: and I'm all
(11:38:31 PM) eumaas: "I cleaned the centaur semen off the rug for you."
(11:38:43 PM) creets: "minotaur wants some biscuits for when we're finished"
(11:38:57 PM) eumaas: and you're like, fuck you Tumnus, what I do with Bruce Campbell Centaur is my business
(11:39:07 PM) creets: yeah!
(11:39:18 PM) eumaas: but it's hard to call him out on it
(11:39:24 PM) eumaas: because it's not explicitly aggressive
(11:39:32 PM) creets: hey
(11:39:32 PM) eumaas: What a little bitch.
(11:39:36 PM) creets: he knew what he was getting into
(11:39:44 PM) eumaas: I suppose
(11:39:45 PM) creets: he stays in the house though
(11:39:53 PM) creets: just in case he sees someone attractive
(11:39:59 PM) creets: and stops paying attention to me.
(11:40:13 PM) eumaas: You think he'd walk out on you?
(11:40:22 PM) eumaas: Dude
(11:40:26 PM) creets: wut
(11:40:29 PM) eumaas: What if he's seeing the minotaur on the side?
(11:40:37 PM) creets: impossible
(11:40:48 PM) creets: ...
(11:40:49 PM) creets: right?
(11:40:51 PM) eumaas: I dunno
(11:40:54 PM) creets: RIGHT?
(11:40:54 PM) eumaas: How would you tell?
(11:40:59 PM) creets: I don't know!
(11:41:02 PM) eumaas: See?!
(11:41:11 PM) eumaas: He's totally going out on you with the minotaur
(11:41:26 PM) creets: he's not!
(11:42:13 PM) eumaas: Denial ain't just a river in Egypt

All in an average night's chat. That place is like a loony bin.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.
