I should mention that it's also insanely wierd that someone else on an Orthodoxy board knows about Strongbad and Trogdar.

Bah!  I'm on a 24,400 kbs connection where each cartoon takes 10 minutes to load.  If I can enjoy the cartoons anyone can.

Phone rates are much more expensive in Greece my friend. They used to be flat rate (13 drachmes whether you talked 1 min or 1 hour) but the monopoly state run phone company quickly realised what a cash cow the Internet would be and they upgraded their equipment so they could charge per minute (I should be grateful, the phone system is much better now).

Internet usage in Greece has actually been dropping whereas the rest of the world has been steadily increasing. That's how much it hits the hip pocket nerve.

I looked into getting a 64K leased line for my work a few years ago and it cost slightly more than a T1 line in the USA which is around twenty times faster.

Now you understand my pain :(

a 10 minute download!? I dont know why you even bother. I've been spoiled with the University T3 connection, so download times don't really exist anymore. I don't know what I'm gonna do when I have to go to DSL or even, gasp, a modem again when I move outta this place.

Having used everything from an 800 baud modem (in 1986) to an OC12 connection, it is a bit painful to be stuck using a 28.8kb/s modem connection.  However, hopefully I will be moving to a different part of town soon and will have either cable or DSL.  I'm very much looking forward to that.

Try the 7th main page.  Have your cursor float over "Characters".

Bobby, an excellent page.  I've tried looking for sites like this a long while.  If you can dig up more U.R.L.'s, tell us when you hit something.

Judging by your anime icon, I will have to assume you've already found the anime page on that site.

Hi Samer!

Us goofy college kids have plenty of odd links, here are a few that you might find interesting.  I'm not sure of your specific interests so I'll give you a mix and you decide what you like and I can go from there.

http://www.gotapex.com  <--- great deals site! Get things cheap

http://www.rael.org <--- great for laughs!!

http://www.gutterfighting.org <--might offend some

http://www.x-entertainment.com <-- not porn site, since I grew up in the 80s, it is a site that appeals to the 80s generation. It's pretty funny!

http://www.zeitun-eg.org/encyclop.htm <-- free online downloadable encyclopedia of Christianity. It's huge and has LOTS of good info

http://rinkworks.com/dialect <---transform any webpage into the dialect of your choice! Can be fun!!

http://www.ourstrangeworld.com/ <--- a very interesting website, hard to classify.

http://www.the-underdogs.org <--- download computer games from the 70s 80s and 90s, you know the classics!

http://maddox.xmission.com/ <--- might be real offensive, he has some colorful jokes, but it can also be real funny!!

Let me know!

Thanks, Bob.  A good stash.  To be clearer, I enjoy Flash ingenuity, witty cartoons and the like.  Folks like Joe Cartoon, but less juvenile and more tamed down (the level of violence is just fine and dandy; it's the unnecessary barrage of lewd references that turns me off), the kind of site that doesn't cross too many limits on obscenity, but isn't G rated either.

http://www.rael.org <--- great for laughs!!

In Arabic?  Ha.  Let me see if I can put this into a small summary.  The additions to our extraterrestrial lexicon derive solely from 70's anime flicks like Grendizer (our pre-adolescents are probably the biggest consumer market for anime on the planet; we're probably the only ones who retain the Japanese names).  Reading this stuff in its Arabic version sounds just like a silly plot synopsis from one of those shows.  Great for laughs indeed.  But I'm got something more bizzare:

Yep, got that from Serge's web corner.

My one big complaint about the Homestar site is the lack of subtitles.  Some of these characters are difficult to understand.

I'm glad to be resurrecting this thread after about five years of dormancy to grace it with some good news.  The Brothers Chaps and Telltale Games of Sam and Max Seasons 1 & 2 fame have joined forces to give us this jewel!

These say it all:

I am hoping some of the older board members who contributed to this thread are still here to see this.
