The Eternal File

During my journey to discover the lost blog that attained sentience, I ran across something that will make your blood curdle. I found... the file that takes forever to copy.


This file doesn't need anyone or anything. It's entirely self-sufficient, and runs on pure hydrogen. Looks like another successful story of pride and redemption. Sometimes I wonder about the future of humanity; then I look at files like this and all my worries just evaporate like dew on a dehumidifier. I find myself looking back on humanity's use of natural resources, how foolish we were to assume that the world's supply of dirt was infinite. Dirt, as scientists will tell you now, is as precious as water. You think dirt just grows on trees?! It has to be cultivated under duress. Without dirt, all our other resources would just... dry up.

There have been 9 Cries of Anguish:

This is surely the File we've been waiting for so long, the fabled Promised File of Unlimited Decompression.

Of course, it could also be the nefarious False File, full of endtime viruses and apocolyptic Spam.

The best part of it is, we'll never know for sure.

Brought tears to these dry eyes.

You are deserving of the Bob-Dole Achievement award.

I always enjoy receiving an award. If only I had never tried to copy the entire Sims game from one folder to another...

Largest file I've ever attempted to download was well over 800 MB (on a 56k modem).

The largest file I've actually downloaded was 211 MB (with dsl).

The largest download I ever did was Eclipse, the free open-source Java editor workshop thing. It's about 100 megabytes.

Only good for Java, though.

Gyrobo, I have a question. I started this whole "Blogshares" game. I was just wondering, what do the do, what do I use them for? Also, what makes my Karma score move?

Thanks,
Salbert
