The "CPHog" is a shrine to the birth-place of the "Bacon" meme on CodeProject. Think of it as being like a crystal reliquary containing the never-rotting flesh of a dead Saint.
“Human beings do not live in the objective world alone, nor alone in the world of social activity as ordinarily understood, but are very much at the mercy of the particular language which has become the medium of expression for their society. It is quite an illusion to imagine that one adjusts to reality essentially without the use of language and that language is merely an incidental means of solving specific problems of communication or reflection." Edward Sapir, 1929
CPHog does not work anymore since the redesign of the site, but a lot of features have been integrated natively in the site itself. I must have been one of the last CPHog users ( CPhogers were recognizable through their avatar icon being a small Bob. This icon has been used for other purposes since then). The one feature I am missing most is the in-place answering of forum threads, as opposed to a new page opening right now.

quick RDP into the box to find that the machine is currently under a DOS, flooding the event logs filling the disk space, crashing the worker processes. Wasn't even the www service is was the FTP service.

While it's true you can eat any bird, I draw the line at anything that doesn't take more than a mouthful when filleted - it's just too much work for too little reward! And seagulls. Filthy tasting things by all reports.

It would learn to move without ringing the bell - but only when you're not around. Having seen a cat catch a bird, it began its run, the birds took off - and it snagged it at nearly 8 feet in the air. Once the cat lunges, the noise doesn't make a bit of difference.*

You'll probably never have heard of him. I certainly hadn't until I read his obituary[^], but what a remarkable man. His story reads like a Boys Own adventure, and while I'm sure he never sought the distinction, he certainly made a major impact on people's lives.
I was brought up to respect my elders. I don't respect many people nowadays.
