What? Apply subjective motivations to subjects?

It may easy but you would soon learn not to. I used Google News BEFORE it was clickbait (talk) 12:19, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

I did this. Way, way back, in version 7 (I said way, way back), the convention of directory entries "." and ".." was only a convention, not enforced. It was possible, and I did, make a directory where ".." did NOT go to the parent directory, but went to a hidden directory. Only I could find the files there.

This ended when system 3's fsck found that directory, and put it in lost+found.

You can just make an alias of a file and copy that into itself.

I think this explanation misses the fact that the comic plays on the meaning of the phrase "porn folder," where the usual usage suggests it is the "folder where porn is kept" but the comedic usage is, "the folder itself is porn." It touches on the subversion of expectations, but it is also a play on words.

Just looked back at this and thought of Right Click. Psychoticpotato (talk) 13:22, 16 May 2024 (UTC)
