at the end click on half dead goat after SB types it and both the left side of the maze, and the right side of it at the end to see easter eggs.

I dunno it was ok, the :cheat: bot was cute. I don't think it was as good as the past few have been. 5/10

Heh. Technology only from the mouth of Strong Bad. Totally inaccurate.

My favorite parts is Pom POm directing, producing and writing a movie on his cell phone, The Cheatbot, floppy disks and hard disks, and what robots are for.

However, the jokes weren't really that funny. Unless it was the easter eggs.

7/10

It was ok.

The :cheat: bot was great, and I like the part about Pom-Pom's cell.


5/10

I really enjoyed this email. My favorite part has to be the screensaver, because I played with that maze thing for hours when I was little.

Same here.

I like how Pom Pom's ring tone sounds like the "indytronic" remix of the ol' geddup noise.

I wouldn't recommend that anyone fold 5¼" floppy disks to make them fit in the 3½" slot. Heh. ;)

The best part was when Strong Bad folded the 5¼-inch floppy to make it fit into a 3½-inch drive. Oh, and when he incorrectly stated that 5¼-inch disks have more memory. That made me laugh.

The rest was just... meh. TBC have done better. This one was mediocre at best--5 out of 10.

It was good, not the greatest. Best as of late is still 140. It seems like they're putting out emails really fast now, perhaps to make up for the lack over the holidays?

My favorite part was Cheatbot. The meh sounds were hilarious. Speaking of Cheatbot, how long until someone registers "The Cheatbot" and "Oboe Shoes" ?

Why is that?

Also, I really hate trying to understand what the heck is up with binary.

Binary is actually very similar to the decimal system... it's just based on 2 rather than 10. In decimal, every position is 10 times greater in value than the previous position. In binary, every position is 2 times greater in value than the previous position. No magic there.

I liked this. I was kinda hoping that Strong Bad was going to Kick The Cheat-bot wen he asked why he was still there. And why doesn't Homestar have legs in that egg? It creeps me out.

That was awesome. Anytime Strong Bad uses technology incorrectly, I'll laugh :bubs:

A little predictable and slow, but still good. Gotta love Strong Bad's explanation for generic screen names, and also Pom Pom's cell phone sequence in particular. B

It's cool that these new E-mails are coming out at a pretty fast rate so far in 2006. Must have been one of TBC's New Year's Resolutions. :)

Look! I can make mine say, OBOE SHOES.

^ My favourite line. I REALLY didn't understand what was up with Homestar just floating away in egg #2... anywho, being a techie-type nerd myself I found this one quite hilarious. The brothers are on SUCH a roll...

Heh, it was pretty fun. A nice little surprise when I awoke this morning. Not as laugh-out-loud funny as the last few, but it gave me a chuckle.

And look! Pom Pom lives! =P

I want a The Cheat-bot...

Whoa, am I actually posting here? I haven't done that for awhile...or too often either. Anyway, I just gotta defend this email. This was easily one of the hardest laughing emails I've seen in quite some time. My cousin was so convinved that the 3 1/2 floppies were called hard disks, and now I have :sad: to back me up!

I laughed, thuroughly, throughout this one. The best I've seen in quite some time. 9/10

That's right. 9/10. It was that friggin funny. :D

Not as funny as some, but it was definitely "cute." I like-aed the Cheatbot, and any appearance of Pom Pom is amusing. Did anybody else find his bouncing off with the sunglasses and the waterbottle strangely amusing? No? I did for some reason. Solid, though!

I enjoyed it. First watched it in my Shakespeare class and I had a hard time holding my guffaws in, so it passes the 'insufferable grin in the middle of talking about Richard II' test but fails the 'can't help but burst into maniacal laughter' test. Still, one out of two ain't bad. I give this hummer a 7.3/10 or so.

Wow, I can't believe it took this long to do a full email all about SB's technologically impaired advice. I cracked up so hard when he said technology is cool stuff that you don't know how it works. And the robot destroying Japan. Pom Pom makes a much overdue appearance, and it looks like he's doing just fine. B-) I'd have to say this is the best update since the break, it really made my day. A-.

Another great one. Swimteampie33331 cracked me up the most. And Pom-Pom was cool too. And so was pretty much everything else...

I'd love to have a wireless extension cord...

My guess on the weird easter egg: Matt screwed up the line/didn't have a funny way to say it. Then when they went to animate, they poked fun at themselves by animating Homestar floating off the screen. And laughed so hard, they felt obligated to keep it in. Makes sense to me.

Solid email. I'm really liking them lately... this is probably the third or fourth in a row to make me consistently laugh out loud... something I generally do in only the extremest of circumstances. That's right, I said extremest. Don't act like it's not a word.
