    O.K. If you are going to talk hizzle you are going to have to interpret. I’m old and not hizzle literate. Please inlighten me. I know who started the hizzle shizzle, I just don’t understand it.

  9. k. o'dee says:

    Do I want to know what is?

  10. Something to finally bring out my nuffing.

    Websites are not meant to be viewed on curved surfaces! There’s a reason why everyone’s moving to flat screen tvs, and you don’t see curved monitors at Best Buy. The websites are obviously in distress and this is nothing but torture for the intertubes. Sticking a cute penguin on it does not make it ok. >:[

    hurray! a very l33t namedrop methinks..

  12. lurkingsmirk says:

    cuteoverload for the win!

  13. Haha, that’s pretty awesome 🙂

  14. We non-nerds out here mostly have no idea what was said. Somebody take mercy on us and translate.

  15. non-geek translation: “Linux hackers in the house”

    Now, if you don’t know what Linux, a hacker, or “in the house” means, then I can’t help you there 😉

    @ k. o’dee – is… special. I don’t know how else to describe it.

  17. binky-mama says:

    Somebody poke that penguin with a pin…he’s about to ‘hesplode!

  18. Geeks need cute more than anyone. Made cynical by the internet, the only thing they can truly love anymore is fluffy little animals.

  19. Good for you!!! That is awesome… more and more recognition to a wonderful site!!

  20. Yes, noids recognize the impor-TONCE of a good schnooks in one’s life! Today, Cute-Overload. Tomorrow, Cute-OverLORD!! Then you shall command ALL the cute vessels of the world to take over and show us the err of our ways!

  21. Chapon — best nuff ever!

  22. PUBLICITY! All good, all the time!

  24. gooeyctr says:

    And Meg said, “Let there be l33t,” and divided the cute from the darkness!

  31. Katrina — loosely translated, that was: “I can has Keanu??”

  32. cheesybird says:

    Ha! Kimski, my brain went in the same direction yours did. I googled and clicked very cautiously. I was at once relieved, bewildered, and disturbed anew to discover what it really was.

  33. chanpon says:

    Freak, I can’t spell my own name right. :-/

  34. wagthedogma says:

    I really need to find this issue. My Eee seriously needs pimping.

  35. (OK, so I substituted “hacking” for “pimping” because I’m oh so conservative that way)

  36. wagthedogma says:

    Of course. Let’s keep our PCs PC, shall we? 😀

  37. *headdesk*

  38. Bashful says:

    I like the bewildered cowboy/gentleman farmer at the bottom of the page.

  39. Katrina says:

    OK, thank you Theo for the translation services.

    My Eee is just dandy, thank you for asking.

    Shizzle, dear!

  40. Katrina says:

    jmuhj- Yes, dear, you may have Keanu, it is fine with me.

  41. Katrina says:
