I found out that the denizens of Something Awful who live in Madison, WI decided to stage to robot protest event. It was funny.
Thanks Pete! There is a more coverage here: http://www.kingburgundy.com/archives/2004_04.html#000139 If you've got the bandwidth, check out the 33MB video. It's pretty entertaining. In the background you can see the TA strike for a bit.
Regarding Something Awful, at least some of their forum users are typical rude image inlining bastards. (http://www.buffyguide.com/webmasters/directlink.shtml) Given that any my general distaste for web forums (http://www.highprogrammer.com/alan/rants/webforums.html) I'm sure as hell not going to pay $10 to see the forum that apparently started this, but if someone else has, here you go: http://tinyurl.com/2bx44
Anyway, stupid web forum or not, it was a fine, fine hack, and I applaud them.
It warms me heart. I would have put a more confounded message in the binary though.
