Okay, okay...stop pounding me in private...I'll reveal the secret.

If you spend any time bumming around F***, or any
other nerd infested web site, you will undoubtly see "ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG

Basically, its from this cheesy video game Zero Wing that had a really bad
translation from Japanese to English.

Some nerds got a hold of it, made this funny little flash video and it has
spread like wildfire on the Internet. Why just today, HP put it on their
website and it keeps popping up here and there. It even got to The Onion: . Its basically an in-joke that
only hardcore nerds know. Wait and in about three weeks it will be everywhere.

Want more info:

Before Eric squashes this thread, there is an interesting tech comm point in
it. Bad translations can sometimes be cause for great cult followings. But I
don't think you can figure that into the Tech Pubs mission statement.
