NBC has finally wised up and put this stuff online? Bob knows they spent most of their time trying to keep it off YouTube, which was the source of my DVD comment.

EDIT: They still won't release the skit that gave me my name. SNL 27 January 1979 with Michael Palin.

EDIT 2: Actually, 12 May 1979. Palin was host twice in four months that year.

Oh, hmm. I was actually looking for a YouTube link when it popped up. I had no idea that they'd spent a lot of time trying to keep video off the internet.

They are absolute vultures on "real" SNL (IMO, SNL is seasons 1-5, period) stuff hitting YouTube.

Oh, man. I'm looking at a couple pics. Michael Palin (who you already mentioned) with John Belushi? Now I have to see it.

Season 4, musical guest is James Taylor. Transcript here:

http://snltranscripts.jt.org/78/78rcowperthwaite.phtml

It was 1982 or so and this popped up on the fraternity house TV as a rerun. I bore a distinct resemblance to Belushi at that time and the nick was instant. I've proudly worn it (it's even on my car's license plate) since then.

Is it just an arbitrarily large number chosen because the phpBB needed a limit for some reason?

I would assume so. Limits like this are typically imposed to cap memory and/or CPU usage when certain internal operations are performed. I have not examined the phpBB source though, so I can't speak directly to the developers' original motivations.

I agree it does seem like a rather odd number.

The original DYMT died because the version of phpBB then in use tried to load the entire thread into the Mod Control Panel instead of just the page in question. My goal then was to split off the offending posts and continue, but the thread size and load time was greater than the time-out limit so every attempt to mod the thread timed out, hence the lock.

If I hadn't tried to merge the two DYMT threads (and I thought I was playing on the dev/test DB, not the live DB, hence the dunce cap) we wouldn't have found the limit until DYMT-R barfed one day and stopped accepting new posts.

I'm not a "bury me in the cold cold ground" type, but I would be bemused by a headstone that implied I'd somehow screwed up every DYMT thread ever launched here.

Perhaps you should set up headstones at the TR BBQ site for each departed dymt thread. You could even include one for the current thread with a blank for the death date. :lol:
On second thought, let's not go to TechReport. Tis a silly place.

Aww man, I missed page 1.

But anyway, didn't Monty Python put everything on youtube a few years back, and their DVD sales promptly went through the roof?

From what I know, she was in a pretty bad car accident. Was paralyzed or severely disabled. At least, that's what she told me. And it pained me like nothing I can describe because she is a wonderful person with a genuinely good heart. Haven't seen her online in years. Hope she is in peace wherever she is.

Had that happened in a pigpen there may have been a literal case of pigs flying.

I make it sound like it's not funny at all, but it gave me fits of hysterical laughter this today, and I keep going back to look at some of them. It's wonderful.
