I want to second what Jon Kulp said. I think a episode or two about how to get the most out of IRC would be must useful.

I have dropped in on various IRC channels from time to time, but, so far at least, I am not an IRC kind of guy. When it comes to IRC, at least, I'm still just a whippersnapper.

I have a near-uncontrollable urge to record three hours of farts and submit it.

Kevin, if Zebra Pizza is still in business in Washington, D. C., they can help you accomplish your goal.

Let us hope they are not.

Please do so

This would be acceptable as it would "be of interest to hackers". I have yet to meet a human under the age of 10 that is not completely absorbed by the topic. As we have many young hackers that are young and many more that are young at heart this would be an ideal addition to our corpus.

Aside from the sheer comedic interest of the show, our contributors may consider shows on the topic from different points of view.

- historic - medical - engineering, the ever excellent "An Engineer's Guide to Cat Flatulence" - a form of art in itself

Remember folks more than 3 show and it becomes a topic.

Le Pétomane

Not to speak of the "French flatulist" Joseph Pujol who made his living farting on stage. See

I have a book on him called "Le Petomane. Or gone with the wind" published in 1967 for 5 shillings.

From the blurb: "Sarah Berhardt drew box-office receipts of 8,000 Francs but LE PETOMANE in a single Sunday took 20,000 Francs at the box-office".
