Transcribing Easter Eggs

Why was some of the dialogue removed from the Transcript? I thought that easter eggs that required just sitting around and waiting were expected to be placed in the Transcripts. --TheNintenGenius 12:00, 11 Oct 2004 (MST)

OK, since nobody has answered this query, I've done some looking around on the Wiki and have now become quite confused. Apparently, while the official transcription policy says that all easter eggs are not to be transcribed, quite a few old sbemail transcriptions contain the transcripts of Easter Eggs that require you sit at your computer like a good boy and wait, including the transcripts for caper, theme park, cartoon, the process, and lunch special. So, which is it now? --TheNintenGenius 17:23, 11 Oct 2004 (MST)

We transcribe everything. The non-clickable eggs (just sit there and it happens) go in the Transcript, the clickable ones go in the Easter Eggs. This was kind of discussed here, but never really gone over. -- Tom 18:01, 11 Oct 2004 (MST)
That's what I thought. Restoring the axed text now. --TheNintenGenius 18:16, 11 Oct 2004 (MST)

Good E-mail

What's up with Homestar's song?

I think he really had to pee. -- Tom 12:30, 29 October 2005 (UTC)

Solid state?

I know I'm like a year late here, but... the remark about "solid state replacing vaccum tube technology" may be incorrect. In this particular context, "solid state" means "no moving parts". For example, a USB harddrive and a USB memory stick are both storage devices. The memory stick is solid state, since it's just a bunch of microchips, whereas the harddrive is not solid state, as it uses a spinning platter and mobile read-write heads. "This is funny, you see, because the so-called Solid State boots apparently use a large and noisy vaccum cleaner motor, which is definitely not solid state technology." 17:58, 28 April 2006 (UTC)

Thank you for your comment. I've integrated your points into the revised Remark:
  • Solid state refers to transistor electronics, vs. old vacuum tube technology. In the '50s through perhaps the mid-'70s (which seems like it might be the period from which the boots came), manufacturers would stamp "solid state" on their various devices, signifying that they were state-of-the-art. These so-called "Solid State" boots apparently use a large and noisy vaccum cleaner motor, which is definitely not solid state technology.
Feel free to change it further if you think it needs it. Thunderbird 18:07, 28 April 2006 (UTC)
