Solid email.

10/10

P.S. Pom Pom appears again!! He's making quite a comeback.


Mine did, and I live in Arizona. And that was 5 years ago. I dunno. How long ago was that for you?

ok, at OMS, you spend half the year in technology, the other half in home and careers.

in technology,theres a class devoted to computers, another to photography, one to woodshop, and one to like... technical drawing. Jay (i beleive) worked in woodshop

in home and carrers you had a "food and nutrition" class, a sewing class, a careers class/child devolopement, and a in 7th grade you went to a writing/reading class, and in 8th it was character ed.

you spend five weeks in each class, rotating, (like oyu would go from computers to photography, etc) and then when the 2nd quarter was done, you switched. if you were in tech, you go to H&C.

in highschool, you dont have to take a tech class if you dont want to.

This is an aawesome email. Strongbad describes the entire history of technology in just a couple minutes. That was hilarious. Especially when he throws the "hard disk" at strong sad. Heh heh heh.

I was rather fond of walkman's and flashlights being the wireless future =P Especially since we clearly have discmans and iPods now! Tee-hee.

I remember when walkmans came out. They were like 90 bucks o_o;

Yeah, and now they're dirt cheap, like, less that $20 cheap. Not bad for the technology of tomarrow, eh?

I loved this e-mail and actually laughed out at it. Making fun of our education system never, ever gets old.

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. ;)

really? i glued a couple of 'hard' disks together to get them to fit in my old-but-not-so-old computer.

You know, until I re-read the Wiki, I didn't know what you guys were talking about when you kept mentioning a goat. Ahh, the Wiki knows all.

For some reason, the floating Homestar gave me the uncontrollable giggles.

Strong Bad scared me for a minute with the "technology in my pants" comment.

It was just OK for me, though.

Sorry, I'm in med school and never took a computer programing course


Now I'm seriously worried about the quality of your education. You don't have to take a computer programming course to learn that a number is split into parts, namely ones, tens, hundreds, thousands and so on. That's elementary- to middle-school level stuff.

Here's an article about a teacher successfully teaching a class binary. If this person could teach nearly an entire third-grade class binary arithmetic, I would think just about anyone can be taught:

Ever notice that Pom-Pom doesn't hang with Homestar much anymore. He sure is forgiving about the "let's see if he'll pop & or explode" thing.

Would it have been funnier if he'd taken a pair of scissors & cut the disk round rather than fold it? I tried to fold one of those things back in grade school.

This one is full of funny quotes. I'd love to record over my answering machine with that binary line.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*I've got some technology beneath my pants right now! Whoo-ya! (followed by "floppy disk," truely a pervy inside-joke.)

*Robots are technology shaped like square people. They are primarily used for destroying Japan and serving hors d'œuvres.

*Diskettes were invented by computers to help us. Like how cows invented milk.

*You may not have understood me, but I was speaking technology.

*Ah, The Cheatbot! I would love a stuffed grape leaf!

Well, I have our school's MathCounts team stuck on making "Oboe Shoes" with their calculators. Most of them don't even know what it means. =P

This was one of the best! Strong Bad's great talking about technology, especially when he was talking with "0" and "1". That makes me laugh! :mrgreen:

Hey all, I know I'm necrobumping here, and I'm new, but I was wondering...
Has anybody made a replication of Strong Bad's screen saver(screen_savior.exe, aka The catacombs) that I can use on my Windows 7 computer? That would rock, thanks. If not, how hard would it be? Couldn't you just capture it from the sbemail itself, crop out the back of SB's head, replace the spot where it should be, enlarge it, and somehow turn it into a screensaver?

The screen saver SB uses is based off the old Windows 98 (Or was it 95?) screen saver. Back when people had those big monitors that could literally burn if it was at a still image for too long, hence the name "Screensaver."

There are a variety of ways to make that scene into a screen saver;

You can decompile the 'toon just to the part where the screensaver plays then just extract that from the toon. Turn it into a gif and see if Windows 7 accepts gifs. May have to get a program that changes gifs to screensavers. I never did this before so it might not work that well. This is the easiest way I know but it it doesn't work I'll give you another way to try.
