Internet Survey

P: n/a
Hello all,

I represent Octabox, an Internet Start-up developing a wide-scale
platform for Internet services. We are very interested to know your
thoughts on Internet productivity and how it might be improved, and to
that end we have set up a short survey at our website -
http://www.octabox.com/productivity_poll.php
We would very much appreciate if you would take a couple of minutes to
fill it up and influence our direction and empahsis.

Thanks in advance,
Octabox Development Team

Well, that was too tempting to pass up. Amusing answers related to dirty
bastard time-wasting spammers duly entered and submitted.

I somehow missed this the first time.

Thanks for the pointer -- I gave them some nice PDP-10 related
responses. I truly hope to have my TOPS-20 productivity improved
soon, thanks to these people.

Computer software consists of only two components: ones and
zeros, in roughly equal proportions. All that is required is to
sort them into the correct order.

Yes it was - and may they get many more similar responses :)

I didn't read their stuff. Are they really trying to put a
round peg in a square hole?

My hope is that one of these groups of kids will learn from
the nose-wiping service a.f.c. gives them and we get a query
back full of curiosity. It is ironic that these ads ask
for expert help and then get rude when it's given.

SexagesimalPussy (base 60) has kind of a nice ring to it.

That would cause kiddies to look up the word. But 360
would have the correct ring.
