This sound pretty cool... Anyone know if it's real or which tool it's in? 05:53, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

  • its real, there are 8 other users, but must stay a secret. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
  • There is no secret chat room, stop looking for it. It doesn't exist. Look for your own island on the interweb, don't come spoil ours. scr_admin

Okay, let's be honest: how many of us, upon seeing today's comic, immediately went here to see if it was real or not? -- 07:47, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

  • I honestly did just that. -- 08:06, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
  • I didn't start up my VM to test it, but I came here to see if was real >.< 09:47, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
  • I also did that. But I take that, if it is real and someone uncovers it, it may destroy that community... 10:28, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Same here. If it is real, I sincerely hope Randall has a) wiresharked it to find out where this chat room resides so he can prod the admin if it ever goes down b) has a backup plan to migrate himself and his friends to some other private chat room. It won't have the same mystery surrounding it, but at least it's something. 10:51, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

It's not about Youtube, but Facebook, which just launched AUTOPLAYING video ads. Look at the title text, it's about Facebook's real name policy. 08:11, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

  • I wouldn't limit the scope of this commentary just to Facebook; YouTube's been doing autoplaying video ads for years. YouTube's also been asking for real names recently. 14:26, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

I just searched after reading - and found this site! -- (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

  • The real secret place is here! (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
  • So THIS is the secret chat 09:50, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
  • One day this place will be forgotten and so will we. -- 09:52, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

anyone else recognizes the wonderful tcp-ip explanation movie of Ericsson Dawn of the net in frames 6 till 10? [User:Tesshavon|Tesshavon]] (talk)

  • Tesshavon you're in my mind ! Also, the 6th frame is comes from one of the most common Friends posters (see e.g. here : Friends ) dandraka

It's true. Small online communities offer a more folksy experience than the online giants. Some of the best places to hang out are BBS's that made it onto the Internet and have been there for 25+ years. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Well there's always IRC... (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

I've rewritten all the explanation. As far as I'm concerned, I'd remove the incomplete box. I just keep it because it's likely that someone else will feel something is missing. 15:27, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

If you're interested in a tightknit community out on the fringes of the Net, go join a MUD. Some are combat oriented, some are roleplay and chat oriented, all are text-based, and many have largely the same exact userbase as they had twenty years ago. - 15:48, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

Hmm i think randall also wants to share his believs in the subcontext of the comic, the reason why we live on erth as a random error, the sysadmin who probably sees it all(=god), the question what will happen after all that is gone (his opinion, that our lives are compelty senseless)..etc.
