There are html versions of buttload 3 onwards, use a short perl script to
generate them, finally fixed it so the output is even somewhat nice (04/10/99).
The boundaries between each release are clearly marked.
The buttload files contain irc quotes from #linux and similar related channels on the undernet irc network.
These quotes were recorded for their amusement value, it all started eons ago (well a few years really) with the original buttload, this was mostly recorded by Wintre and some by joefu it seems.
Next came buttload2, this was short lived (but still amusing) recorded by asako, unfortunately this buttload has been mostly discontinued as asako is unable to live on irc for long periods of time currently. (wow he may actually have a life unlike the rest of us)
Then inspired by buttload2 and the original buttload another op on #linux started recording quotes and reaching back into over 98 MB of irc logs for more quotes to create the third buttload.
Buttload 4 finished at release 9.
And now there is a buttload five, the current buttload.
The html version of the buttload files allow links to the releases.
The Releases of buttload3 One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six, Seven
The Releases of buttload4 One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six, Seven Eight Nine
The Releases of buttload5 One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six, Seven
Also by request here is a file with a list of the buttload gifts I have given out that I can find in my logs at a quick glance. I have stopped handing out gifts in recent times, if people liked them or think I should start doing so again just send me an email.
Also not buttload related but amusing as all heck I thought was this page about how people in different professions hunt elephants also worth a read.
Below are some commentary and assorted quotes (yeah quotes of quotes... I live a small and protected life) if you wish to read this before grabbing the files.
<jql> Humans are cat dildos.
<Lobsang> Fare: In fact not, but most tropical countries have only two distinct seasons: HOT and GOD DAMNED HOT, so we call it summer. :)
<Procyan> is there like 1 person on earth that knows tcl/tk and is
writing all of the apps?
<unSlider> procyan: no, there are a bunch of people who dont know tcl/tk but are writing apps for it anyway
* unSlider fondles lilo's boobs
* unSlider sees no reaction
* lilo looks at uns strangely.
* unSlider uses a power sander on lilo's boobs

<Winter> unS: You mean, on an infinite number of typewriters, working on this play about a Danish prince?
<Digital> Wint: Of course, that assumes the monkeys are random, and it's a well known fact that monkeys are not random. You toss them on a 4billion degree flame, they burn. Pretty predictable. :)
* MajorTom almost has a deep introspective thought on the meaning of life, but alas, another great insight into the human condition is lost as his roomates pr0n screen saver kicks in....
<xL> Hey man.. Windows NT is great for embedded applications.. Like 50lb doorstops.

<vw_bob> well, can qsomeone at least point me in a god direction?
<Nuke> vw_bob: god direction? *points straight up*
I cant think of much to say in regard to this third buttload. (I will
sound big headed and egotistical if I rave about it too much anyway) It
is in release 7, 76 KB.
Umm read it (enjoy it?) tell me if you like it :)
Those quote thingies...
* Coma used to feed his snake with chihuahuas until the whole neighbourhood ran out of them

<Tamahome> * steel points back at steel_, creating an infinite recursion

*** Topic for #linux: [2.0.35/2.1.124] * FAQ @

with my ethernet cable
*** The topic was set by Greyfox 2156 sec ago
* Greyfox:#linux notes that only one person has msged him since he set the topic, and that person wanted to know if he used CAT5.
<jdh> linux sucks, just wait for Microsoft(tm) Windows(tm) NT(tm)
<Kazz> jdh: Don't forget the TM on TM... ;)
* aiel points out to jdh that Linux is also a (tm) now
<xL> Hello my name is Linus(TM) and I pronounce Linux(TM) as Linooks(TM)

enough time even RUNNING irc from the shell
<razathorn> Tamahome: he's gona wake up in a puddle of drool and find millions of variations of "chat" "ric" "cir" "ircc" "irrccc" in his history
<razathorn> *** Quits: fretless [drunk@somoneelsespoorhouse] (drool saturation on /dev/console)
<django23> I have a stupid question: what does "sendmail" do?
<Epesh> django: you're right, that is pretty stupid
<Epesh> django: oh, you need an answer? "sendmail" resolves hostnames to IPs.
<biohazard> recv() return shitty string, how can I convert it to
<ripper_> try shittytoa()
<QRShag> 32 bits gives us the potential for 4,294,967,295
addresses... 48 bits would give us somewhere over 281,474,900,000,000
possible addresses. (Yes, 281 trillion.)
<QRShag> At 48 bits, we can start assigning IP addresses to cockroaches.
<QRShag> 2^64 would give us 18 quintillion addresses (hey, you lil' amoeba! how'd you like your own C-class?)
<erno> hm. I've lost a machine.. literally _lost_. it responds to ping, it works completely, I just can't figure out where in my apartment it is.

<Paul-K> And of course, really weird code. "Well, this code that seemed so brilliant when I was up at 4:30am, now seems to be a chant about monkey beards."
<Epesh> I'd break the camera. I'm a troll. in fact, I scare off
<Epesh> I'm what little trolls think live under THEIR beds.

#I# Signoff: st2 (Well, after playing all these CDs, I think it's time to rewind them)
<aiel> ik? maar dat doet ik nooit!
<Epesh> golly dutch sounds like a retarded language, unlike hebrew

Yes the buttload is still going. There are no quotes on the webpage here yet from this release as I dont have heaps of time and anyway it is better to draw from a larger amount of content for the quotes I find.
