Kudos to my friend Kilovh for noticing. Hope you enjoy his little find, and the song

Windows XP, and it's installing something apparently....probably some type of Nielsen Ratings firewall.

Looks like the "add new hardware wizard" to me, though it's hard to tell. There are other wizards that look similar. However, given how silly the show can be sometimes, I would NOT be surprised if they put the "add new hardware" bit on there because they WERE installing new hardware.

Damn, how can you not like firefly? I can almost always find problems in any given media, but firefly just seems flawless to me.

Good eye, but you use a YTMND remembering Firefly by bashing Windows? Confusing. Three for not getting your priorities straight.
September 6th, 2006

f*cking SWEET. i miss that show.
September 6th, 2006
(0)
I like to think of it as more of a two pronged YTMND, than a confuzing of priorities. In honesty, the bit about it being fitting was more spur of the moment than anything. The fact that windows was running on a trash can was too good an opportunity to pass up.

Joss Whedon is a genius. Don't think for a second that windows running on a garbage bin was an accident. Good eye, dude.

this is good--theres an episode of CSI:NY where someone has a scanner gun of some kind with a Pocket PC attached to the top. When the chick comes out of the hatch, you can CLEARLY see solitare on the screen, not whatever program she was talking about. my wife showed me that one on our DVR

I like that one guy, because in 28 Days he has a bulldog and a sign around his neck that says "No Male Contact" and he says "Look at Mein Package." Teutonics FTW. Also I am f*cking DRUNk.

the only bad thing about firefly was that it got cancelled. :( that show & carnivale, gone too early.... IMO this site could be better without all the text, a wtf and an arrow and the point would be made. the intro explaination is not necessary, the joke still works if people don't know what Jayne is doing

Oh wow, I just checked that on the dvd. Excellent find, but i'd five it even if it was just a still picture and had the Firefly theme.

uclearbasta--it didn't show up on any of my searches to see if anyone had done this before, and it sucks compared to mine. I had no knowledge of it until you posted it just now. I don't feel I have to acknowledge something that had nothing at all to do with the creation of my work.

Askaak--thanks for your oppinion, but I think you're missing the point of the opener. The opening frames serve a twofold purpose. First, they allow non fans to relate to the situation and know that windows XP really shouldn't be in there, and second, it makes my claim easily verifiable (btw, it's at 21:41 if I remember correctly.) The text is just leet, cuz I'm badass like that.

I just went into the DVD and checked - that's legit. Wow.

you get a 5 for a firefly ytmnd, my only disapointment Is that I couldn't give you a 10. There are two things in this world that were taken unjustly from us, Firefly and Steve Irwin

I agree that your YTMND is better than mine, but the way you made that opinion known makes you look like a dick. Also, I accept that my YTMND had nothing to do with yours, but you weren't the first to notice or publicize this, so stop posing like you were. 1'd for ass-hole.

Know what? Never mind. I no longer care whether you credit my site or not, partially because you're right, but I just looked at all your other 11 sites. Quite a body of work for the last TWO MONTHS! You only started to not suck like two weeks ago, so I no longer care what you think.

I never liked Firefly. I gave it a shot, but the unneeded mix of incompatable genres (oldstyle frontier + science-fiction space travel) rubbed me the wrong way. I'm not voting because, YTMND wise, I'm indifferent.

I'm nice, I gave you a five instead.

Skorpius--You are nice! =D I didn't see firefly so much as a mix of genres, as a realisation that genres are not mutualy exclusive. If that makes sense X'D

Sometimes you might not think of the right search terms when you're checking to see if anybody has done something before, it happens. What's important is that you make the best site you can.
