CO Discovered by /. Nerds

OMG! Like the emotionally stunted Slashdot Fanboys (pictured below) have totally discovered Cute Overload. W00t!


Since they're all l33t hax0rs, who are smarter than all of us combined, we should relinquish the comments and let them debate:

1. Why Microsoft sux!

2. Why you are so lame for not encoding your music to Ogg Vorbis.  What a luser!  You probably listen to Britney anyway, so what's the point.

3. Why Jerry Taylor is, like, a total dick.

4. How you should delete Windoze and install FC5.  It's like totally easy to use.

5. Some endlessly stupid circular argument that got started because one of their egos is as delicate as a butterfly fart.

So everyone put away their My Little Pony dolls and pop an Anime disc in your DVD, because the comments sections are going to be worthless until the Slashdot Effect passes.

Then again, if you're really nice and bat your eyelashes, you can probably convince one of these guys to fix your WiFi connection.  (You, like, totally should be running WPA2 security.  *snort* *snort*)

And for every Fanboy that buys a t-shirt, we'll set you up on your first date.  LOL!

I love it. Those are truly the best slams toward slashdotters I have heard in a long time.

... although wanking wasn't mentioned at all...the second most favorite activity of a slashdotter, Followed by the number one activity, being condescending.

OMG that blondie with the jeans is HOT!

 |  Mar 31, 2006 at 09:54 PM

This picture of the group of guys, this really scares the crap out of me. I am hoping that military official in other countries don't think this represents the average male here or we will be invaded tomorrow! Also, the second guy from the left ; what is he looking at? Does he need help or did he just come out of a seizure? The guy in the very back seems disgusted and right fully so!

 |  Mar 31, 2006 at 09:57 PM

who would have tought that the usual posters of this site would make rude comments just becuase they receive a visit from slashdot. Totally uncute and uncool. Get a life people!

 |  Mar 31, 2006 at 10:07 PM

A little too close to home, Manga? Wah!!!

What is with the unwarranted hatred of nerds? I mean if they did something to the site or whatever, its understandable. But it seems so out of the blue...?

 |  Mar 31, 2006 at 10:12 PM

"Followed by the number one activity, being condescending."

You express support for a post like this, then call people from Slashdot condescending?

 |  Mar 31, 2006 at 10:15 PM

I actually might take you up on that T-shirt deal...

'Tis true that many a Slashdotter has no understanding of cute, except that it scores four points in Boggle. Not all are like that and I might will bookmark this page now I've discovered it.

(Just so that nobody from Slashdot thinks I've totally lost it, I did teach my cat to play pinball.)

 |  Mar 31, 2006 at 10:18 PM

LOL, Anonymous Coward, LOL...

 |  Mar 31, 2006 at 10:18 PM

Ha ha - way to take the slashdot effect with a sense of humor. I love it - and I might shop around tomorrow and buy a shirt just because of the wonderful humor. But I gotta work in the morning selling computers and wifi with WPA2, so for now I'm off!

 |  Mar 31, 2006 at 10:20 PM

I take it our website redesign was a flawed investment in human labor that evidently saw no return in the form of increased appeal to those whose demographic may be in line with this and other cuteness-oriented websites.

Please submit suggestions for improvement to [email protected].


 |  Mar 31, 2006 at 10:20 PM

Hey guys...I think Meg was joking. A lot of what she says is pretty tongue-in-cheek...I think she was just being satirical, not malicious.

That being said, I think it is awesome that Slashdot discovering Cute Overload happened at the same time as Slashdot did a lovely pink redesign, complete with "OMG Ponies!", for April Fool's! It just...fits!

 |  Mar 31, 2006 at 10:20 PM

wow i never knew this much cuteness was in one spot by the way youve also been dugg


coward of the anonimys type
 |  Mar 31, 2006 at 10:22 PM

First, "Anonymous Coward" best handle EVAR, and second, WELCOME TO THE CUTE, my little NERDS [arms open wide]

With the exception of BoingBoing listing us, getting Slashdotted is the equivalent is the BEST thing to ever happen to us.

I might have to retire the site now—I mean, what ELSE IS THERE!?

More cute. There is always more cute, if only because of the principles of probability.

In Soviet Russia, cute overloads you!

Can you make a Beowulf cluster of cute kittens?

Eh... it just isn't the same. :(

Mod parent up.

In Cute Russia, Soviet jokes overload you!

It wouldn't be a beowulf, wulfs are canine. It would be a beotyger. And, yes, anyone who has worked in animal rescue knows that a cluster of cute kittens has awesome power - usually for computing total destruction of furniture, but awesome power nonetheless.

 |  Mar 31, 2006 at 10:41 PM

Maybe not a beowulf cluster of kittens, but I'd think one might be able to connect teh cute kittens in a grid of some kind, and generate a massive charge of static electricity. If we could ever figure out Tesla's notes, maybe we could use the kittens to power a beowulf cluster.

That's even better than powered by Hamster Wheel.

This site is way funnier than /.

First post!

Let's see if the slashdot
effect can overload the cute servers.

PS, I'm a slashdotter that was here before it was slashdotted. I'm old school.

 |  Mar 31, 2006 at 10:46 PM

Do your worst, SlashDotters! This is on TypePad's ass, not mine! [Choosey Bloggers Choose TypePad]

haha thank you internet you just made my life 2 years longer, i will laugh all day and have a good feeling in my stomach for the rest of the night because of this duel, hahaha

Penguins are cute. So is the Apple remote. And maybe capacitors... Post some cute geek stuff.

 |  Mar 31, 2006 at 10:55 PM

Hmph. Where did my post go?

And here's your cute geek stuff:


 |  Mar 31, 2006 at 11:04 PM

I'm not a geek. I'm not a nerd. However, I too believe in the Power of the Penguin.

 |  Mar 31, 2006 at 11:05 PM

Is that a promise? If I buy a tshirt, I can get a date?

How many you got?

i don't dare say
 |  Mar 31, 2006 at 11:05 PM

Ahhhh! Nothing like cute nerds? At least your site is still up >.>

Besides, if you survive the slashdotting... you could always hope for the dupe next week. Then you know you can handle it.

Keep posting cute stuff! Someone /.'ers actually appreciate this site

 |  Mar 31, 2006 at 11:07 PM

this site is ridiculous OMG!!!

holy fuck
 |  Mar 31, 2006 at 11:12 PM

Wow this post is so ironic and absurd! The whole internet has collapsed in on itself!

 |  Mar 31, 2006 at 11:14 PM

OMG!! Who's your host? If your image-heavy site survives this, please post who they are so I can get an account.

 |  Mar 31, 2006 at 11:18 PM

I can't stand all the tension! Mommy! Daddy! Don't fight!

 |  Mar 31, 2006 at 11:23 PM

Geeks and cute stuff actually mix extremely well (see: Apple products, Nintendo, and the sheer number of small toys and plushies that the average programmer collects)... we just have a slightly different definition of cute. For example, I happen to love concentrated cuteness of the tentacled variety -- little octopuses, squiddies, and Cthulhu-spawn have such big round eyes and flailing tentacles that you can't help but love them.

Could we at least see some penguin pictures, though? :) It would appeal to even the most sexually-insecure Slashdotter, and even the regulars here have gotta admit that a baby penguin is damn cute.

 |  Mar 31, 2006 at 11:24 PM

Obviously, the threat of us being overloaded by cuteness is nothing more than FUD, and I refuse to listen to any more of it.

 |  Mar 31, 2006 at 11:30 PM

Wonderful! Lovely! I only read /.
-no...can't do it. Must say slashdot...anyway-
I only read slashdot through the RSS, but I was quite amused to stumble upon your site. I wish all April Fools day pranks could be as fun as this. :-D

 |  Mar 31, 2006 at 11:33 PM

... And then I went and found a whole website (http://www.emperor-penguin.com/) full of extremely cute penguin pics...

You should go steal some for this site, Meg :)

D00d, I heard there were ch1x0rz here! I haven't seen one of those since the last time I talked to my mom!

I don't even KNOW these guys, and they're definitely not cute. Bring back the dang animals, Meg.

lol, we're just foolin'.

Seriously though, are you a ch1x0r? I mean, for real? Not like the guy on WoW that claimed to be a girl and I cybered with and he posted it online for everyone to see?

But perhaps I've said too much... um... uh... bye!


 |  Mar 31, 2006 at 11:47 PM

Remember Anonymous Coward, websites don't exist until they're slashdotted, at which point they again cease to exist a few hours later.

P.S. - M$ sux, and this site doesn't have proper support for browsers that are using Opera for OS/2, version .62 beta.
