Wikipedia Smurfin' Rocks!
27 December, 2005

Although this begs the question of why one would ever need such information (a question to which I have no good answer) Wikipedia once again comes through in the clinch.

  • Actor (aka Timid)
  • Airborne (aka Aviator)
  • Alchemist (aka Apprentice)
  • Baby
  • Baker
  • Barber
  • Bashful
  • Brainy (aka Supersmurf; King Smurf)
  • Clockwork
  • Clumsy
  • Cook
  • Cobbler
  • Dabbler
  • Doc
  • Dopey
  • Dreamy (aka Astro)
  • Editor
  • Farmer
  • Finance
  • Fisher
  • Flighty
  • Grandpa
  • Greedy (aka Master Smurf)
  • Grouchy
  • Handy
  • Harmony
  • Hefty
  • Jokey (aka Prisoner)
  • King

  • Sweepy
  • Tailor
  • Timber
  • Timid
  • Toughy
  • Tracker
  • Vanity
  • Weakling

  • Wild
  • Wooley

Because I love the coulda-been stories of characters that narrowly missed the cut and a chance at history, I have compiled my own list.

  • Accountant (carries abacus and talks incessantly about Sarbanes-Oxley)
  • Buffy (looks just like Smurfette but carries a wooden spike)
  • Director (stocky with full beard, wears shorts, and quotes from comic books using issue number)
  • Dot-com (rides a Segway everywhere and uses words like “monetize”)
  • Faith (looks just like Buffy but with black hair, dress, and shoes)
  • Golf (wears loud, plaid pants)
  • Lion Tamer (carries chair and whip)
  • Lorelai (looks just like Smurfette but with brown hair, carries a coffee cup, and talks really fast)
  • Mama (never seen, only referred to as “the smurf that took all of Papa's money in the divorce”)
  • Naughty (torso is pixelated)
  • Nerdy (wears thick glasses and a pocket protector; constantly makes DND and BtVS references)
  • Panhandler (carries a cardboard sign with a different message each episode, e.g., “Will Smurf for Food”)
  • Pimp (purple hat and pants and lots of gold)
  • Stand-up (carries a microphone and tells inappropriate knock-knock jokes)
  • Zoo (khaki hat and pants; has Australian accent)

Which did I miss?

This article complains that the following error message is “unprofessional”:

try
{
  /* SNIP: 15 lines */
}
catch
{
  //How did this happen??
  log.fatal("Aaaaarrrgghhhh");
}

Anti-pirate thinking like that caused global warming.

On the NBC Today Show this morning, they had a minutes-long segment about using your iPod to buy music from the iTunes Music Store.

Basically, NBC just produced an infommercial for Apple. I wonder if it was part of the agreement to put NBC shows on the video iPod. He is an Evil Genius!

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all! May Santa have been good to you. (Except for those of you that wished for a stripper factory or a beer volcano. You have to wait until the FSM heaven for those.)
