I just <3 The IT Crowd. Plenty of current themes are spread on tshirts, posters, toys and stickers throughout the series.
Series 3, Episode 6 has a LOLCAT on Jen’s office door: (yes, that is an 8-bit Ernie and Bert T-shirt)
And here is the original:
This is why Silverlight and DeepZoom where inventorated
Thanks, Berno, for the LOLCAT macro text. Just love it!
Don’t know if stuff is broken. Installed 10 minutes after shipment. Just unzip, drag and drop. FTP. Upgrade. Done.
My parents sent me the above photo. This was taken circa 1984.
The cat is a tabby/white chested cat we called Bindy. Way before the Irwins used that name. And the Mac 128K’s name was Bonny. Yes, the boxes of disks to the right of the photo are geniune Apple 3.5″ disks – each disk being worth about AU$7.00 at the time.
Cats, Computers – a combination that lives through the ages.
Aaron Rutkoff deconstructs LOLCats to the point of it being unfunny.

- LOLCATS takes the memes of the internet, standardizes them with funny pictures of cats. As LOLCATS is mainstream (ref: http://www.news.com.au/story/0,23599,21988724-2,00.htmlÂ and ref: http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/business/4862013.html) Oh Noes!
- LOLCODE: taking the language: syntax, grammar, vocabulary – but more importantly the memes of LOLCATS into an esoteric programming languageÂ Other esoteric programming languages include Var’aq, INTERCAL, and Omgrofl
- Mitch Denny theory: we’ll communicate in shortened phrases and memes as common understandings. eg: Star Trek:TNG episode: Darmok. Note Mitch Denny is Star Wars, not Star Trek – so this reference may be lost on Mitch.

Stage 2: LOLCODE HAS LULZ http://forum.lolcode.com/viewtopic.php?id=304
- LOLCODE.net : compiles down to IL. Really big thanks to Joel Pobar for his expert comments and advice for all on LOLCODE.Net
- LOLCODE Specification is presently at 1.2 with lively discussion in the forums on lolcode. And an example of the community creating a language.
- U CAN HAS LOLCODE?
TechEd, from a newcomer’s perspective, needs more cowbell. http://twitter.com/atl introduced us all to the world’s newest programming language in May.
Based on a democratic yet technologically flawed vote on http://nickhodge.com/ popular opinion is that LOLCODE should be presented.
Therefore, Chuck has let me subvert the hierarchy and made a slot for me to present the following:
Thursday 9th August
12:45pm-1:15pm NIck Hodge: LOLCODE. CAN HAS NEW .NET LANGUAGE. LOLCODE IZ IN UR TECHED. C U THERE. KTHXBAI
Just the thing to start the day, and shake off any residual hangover.
Not sure what I’ll get to cover in a mere 30 minutes. Maybe LOLCODE will get into the keynote for 2008?
Buy the t-shirt at http://store.lolcode.com/
As the LOLCATS meme goes TechEd; here one of my submissions:
Now, in the interest of learning new programming languages: I purchased a LOLCODE.com T-shirt. What was interesting was the non-geeks looking at me strangely. People already think I am “out there”, and the LOLCODE t-shirt just proves it.
Before you start dis’in my new language of choice, there is a Visual Studio 2005 with syntax highlighting and Intellisense and a .Net version on the way.
So, my question to the developer community: do we need a special BOF LOLCODE session at TechEd 2007?
