|05:47 pm - i love these people|
[5:38:08pm] [skrolnik] ... melley, on her ex:
[5:38:10pm] [skrolnik] this is like the time he decided he was going to teach himself to type
[5:38:10pm] [skrolnik] one-handed so he could drink coffee while he typed, and it took him a year
[5:38:10pm] [skrolnik] to understand why everyone responded "...yeah...drink coffee...riiight..."
[5:39:51pm] [Raventh0n] dude
[5:39:54pm] [Raventh0n] i can touch-type one-handed
[5:39:55pm] [Raventh0n] it's not hard
[5:40:15pm] [Raventh0n] i type faster one-handed than some people type two-handed
[5:40:27pm] [Raventh0n] the following was typed one-handed.
[5:40:35pm] [pezzy] Same here. It's a necessary gaming skill.
[5:40:44pm] [Raventh0n] the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog
[5:40:50pm] [Raventh0n] double space. damn.
[5:41:49pm] [pezzy] I'm typing this one handed. I rule.
[5:42:41pm] [Raventh0n] pezzy: but are you masturbating?
[5:43:32pm] [skrolnik] .mr sttevids rtoyvfd ibe fsbded'
[5:43:40pm] [skrolnik] okay i can't touchtype one handed
[5:44:00pm] [pezzy] No. I'm ganking. WAY more exciting.
[5:44:08pm] [skrolnik] ganking?
[5:44:22pm] [crschmidt] wow term

ganking = killing characters, generally other player characters in wow or other such mmorpg.

also, that would explain why i sucked at wow, since i can't type one-handed.
doesn't dvorak have special one-handed layouts?
|Date:||March 1st, 2006 03:33 pm (UTC)|| |
yes, but i only know the two-handed one.
I always thought ganking meant stealing. you learn something new every day

It evolved to that. It started out as "gang-kill" which got shortened to "gank". That was a bunch of players ganging up on one, in a player-versus-player game. It started being used for something or someone massively more powerful killing something weak. It's like stealing candy from a baby, hence the stealing.
People on my flist often post that they "gakked" something like a meme from someone else. Gak is what a cat does with a hairball, or in noun form, the stuff that comes out of a cat after it makes that hurking noise.
your lj is nothing if not informative.
i appreciate this.
good day fine sir,
it's nice to be appreciated.
also: why were you pulling your car?
