The 0xdeadbeef mailing list, an early Metafilter, predates most of the Interweb and continues to this day. Run by nerd kernel hacker Glen McCready, it chronicles such gems as the Windows 95 RTM Baby Benchmark, Steve Job's Theory of Life, how to use sendmail.cf to play Towers of Hanoi, the eskimo's (purported) 100 words for snow, our terrible historical beer shortage, the Shift Key FAQ, the one click guide to becoming an international arms trafficker, the Rockwell corporation's theory of near space defense, the world record for an encased pork product, Abbott and Costello Speak Unix, the deer paving incident, the Etch-A-Sketch Support FAQ, the debunking of the don't run in the rain study, entertaining error messages from Netscape beta releases, the world's worst PDA-related simile, the coolest smooth move ever, suggestions for improvements to the Matrix, and the secret habits of VPs. Among about 20,000 jokes, news items and random bits. A mother lode of archaeological timewasting goodness.
