Oh, I don't know -- maybe the Flickr old skool could use it before merging to Yahoo! IDs.

Don't worry; with Web 3.0, the pendulum will have swung back, and then some.

This reminds me of Progress Quest only less funny and more work.

Hilarious site cortex! I can peruse it as I play Progress Quest.

How is that Web 2.0? It's clearly not written in Rails.

I signed up for this shit last month.

The support blows. They wiped my account information without warning because I had an illegal prime number in one of the fields. They're too fucking sticky, too. No export function. Fuck 'em. I'll just roll my own.

Actually, I liked the "sign up now!!1" bit.

And ... datapoint: 2987 signups as of right now.

on preview: 2995.

I'm disappointed they gave it an obvious name instead of a goofy one like "squeebo"

I signed up as mathowie, jessamyn, languagehat, cortex, jonmc, loquacious, dios, The Pink Superhero and stavrosthewonderchicken. I will sell you your account name for fifty gmail invites.

Except dios. I'm using that one to do some irreparable internet carnage.

Oh, yeah. It's been a while since I wrote that. It's funny, because I thought to myself just now, "ah, another datapoint in the great How Do You Render "ND[cent character]" experiment!

How embarassing for me.

All her posts are interesting if you fantasize about spending hours talking about the Linux Kernel Space swapping, drinking champaign mixed with mountain dew, before fucking a beautiful slender woman.

*Note: don't know much about Ms. Jardin.

I enjoyed this very much. Thank you.

Useless account amused me with this bit of reasoning for signing up:

Impress your friends with your ability to tab through form fields and arrow through saved field values!


Hits a little close to home.

This is genius.

I want to sign up, but I'm stymied by the "what would you do for a million that you wouldn't do for ten large" question. I dunno; maybe I'd refrain from doing something exactly 100 times?
