My favourite (albeit not really a buzzword is) Multimedia Super Corridor.

I mean, what's so great about a corridor? At least a highway connotes speed and breadth, but a corridor?!

And the annoying thing about corridors is, that when two people are having a conversation in one, the stand on either side of the corridor to talk, so you have to walk between them, excusing your interruption. If they both stood on the same side, it wouldn't be a problem. In fact, if I have to talk to someone in a corridor, I always move to the same side they are on for this very reason.

Oh but this is Other OS, not Off Topic. :oops: don't mind me.

It is possible to be off topic in the Other OS forum, but not in the Off Topic forum. ;)

Surely discussing Linux or Linux Format would be off topic for Off Topic :wink:

Precisely. If it's on topic it's off topic in Off Topic and if it's off, it belongs in Off Topic, because that's where anything that's off topic is on topic, unless it isn't, or is. Simple really.

That depends on whether you view the definition of topic in the forum title as global or local. If it is global and refers to the overall topic of all the forums, the Linux is off topic for Off Topic, thus demonstrating that is it possible to be off topic in Off Topic. However, if the topic is considered a local definition, then it relates to the topic of the individual forum, and thus returns an "UNDEFINED VARIABLE: Topic" error and any reference to the topic of the forum is meaningless, much like its contents - not to mention the forum member that inspired its creation :)

That's all very well nelz, but we're still off topic here. And anyway, I'm writing English not mathematics and if Parmenides could get away with this sort of linguistic shenanigans, then so can I! :P

That's debatable, it seems like you've been spending too much time with your pet fish :P

I suppose it's possible that I might become senile before I die.

That appears to be the case with 1sf (troll)... unfortunately.

Unfortunately this will pass him by, 1sf (troll) thinks senile is what you go to Egypt to do. :)
