First, :offtopic:!

I've been working on this DOS program for a while now, took a lot of hacking and whatnot to integrate it into the Russian/Chinese/American missile silo databases, but otherwise it's working pretty good. Works with either IP addresses or GPS coordinates.

A screenshot (no GUI as you can see):

Haven't gotten a Mac or Linux port going yet.

25 bucks, huh? Seems like such a small price to pay for guaranteed worldwide notoriety. :D

I'm betting that this program will be a hit though, so I kept the price affordable.

See, I'd have bought it if it needed two people sat at different keyboards hitting "y" at the same time.

"Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You nuked my father. Prepare to fry".

STOP IT! I'm at work! I can't bust out laughing or my coworkers will think I gagged on my lunch.

Too much British humor. :D

You're allowed to idly nuke places at work, but not to massacre Princess Bride quotes?

Man, you have a wierd job.

I do my nuking during my lunch hour. More important things to do during the morning and afternoon. The cubicles ring with income. All that.

Hark the air-raid klaxons sing,
"Inigo's lunch-hour nuking"
Nukes from silos' gaping hole,
Launched by IP Protocol....

Joy to the World!
For Bog is dead
I protocolled his head
Don't worry about the body
I nuked it down the potty
Round and round he goes
An' round and round he goes
Down through the sewer
Pipes it flows.

The only reason I can be remotely funny is because half my bloodline is English. But see, I have this American mutt Stoic Germanic other half. So what with all the internal strife between limey and kraut inside of me, sometimes the blue-painted Viking screams out blathering foam-flecked gurgles of anger, and sometimes the balding, pudgy, stressed Brit mumbles witty statements derived mostly from watching too much Monty Python or Fawlty Towers.

EDIT: By stating the above, I'm not implying that Brits are stereotypically balding, pudgy, short, stressed, or that they have no chins as a result of hundreds of years of island life which therefore logically leads to inbreeding.

I'm German and Irish. I have no sense of humor, but man, can I drink... :D

Irish American. So one half focussed, innovative techologist, one half pounding on the bar roaring "I demand to have some booze!"

This explains the roaring commercial success I've had from the BogCo Automated Rotary Cat-Polisher and my highly popular line of self-guiding colonoscopy heads. :beerchug:

I'll have to complain about the BogCo colonoscopes. I bought one off eBay after a series of uncomfortable digestive issues (dozen burritos a day coupled with my relatively low body weight) and, maybe this was before you came out with the Teflon model, but heck that thing was scratchy. Maybe I was doing something wrong but I needed to see what was blocking my kidney and so I fed it through my mouth and...OK, let's just say that I really wished I had splurged and bought the Teflon model.

At least I found the Kleenex stuck in my gall bladder.

Did you wash it before putting it in your mouth at least?

RollerJesus: Didn't bother, I had read on eBay that it was in "very good condition".

IMI: Is that similar to the "DIY Lobotomy For Kids Pack" I saw on sale at Wal-Mart?

EDIT: Sorry, just realised how sick that was... :D

I don't remember seeing a DIY Lobotomy for Kids Pack at Wal-Mart. Maybe they were sold out.
Do they keep it somewhere near Big Bird's Official Lead Content Analysis Kit? :D

Yes. Same company makes the DIY Lobotomy Kids Pack, Big Bird's Official Lead Content Analysis Kit, and the Mickey Mouse Uranium 238 Science Fair Experiment Starter (Make Miniature Reactions In Your Own Backyard! Not for Use on Animals).

Gee, I'm glad we never released the GougeFlanger 9000/op A.

That would have been contentious.

Steamthrower

To say the least. Thanks for keeping the 9000/op A in a closed testing environment. It sounds not only contentious but pretentiously evocative of a singular lack of conscientiousness.

Also, fattening.

Steamthrower

Good thing about obesity running rampant is all the thin people (like me) are looking better and better. I'm not using a GougeFlanger though.

I mean, all things considered, and unconsidered, I'm still totally in the dark as to what a GougeFlanger is. Apparently it's fattening, contentious, and allows for an unnatural amount of physical mass doing something or the other. It also sounds slightly painful.
