    I hope Bobbie and Skip, or whatever his name was, will post a video clearing up that whole quantum physics nonsense next! That Bobbie is a genius!!

  2. static says:

    Posted for our comedy of the day, right? No doubt Bobbie was helpful to her target audience. Those who view that particular TV broadcast ministry.

    Funny as, if only the oldies could

    The other day i was hacking around thinking i was running port forwarding on my pop3 packets through ssh encrypted tunnels. turns out i got the port number wrong and ended up encrypting all udp traffic outboard through my router’s gateway.

    Wait…how did she forward all the traffic using a protocol when all she did was accidentally change the port (110?)?

  11. Todd Grigsby says:

    This was supposed to be related to hacking, or a serious instructional on ssh tunneling? Really? Well, gosh. Hm. I see…

  13. rotceh_dnih says:

    come on guy’s let em have some fun
    i thought it was amusing and think there should be space for tech humor at hackaday

  14. hey zeus says:

    I second the “church spam” comment. Anymore jebbus and I’ll be gone too.

  15. VonSkippy says:

    A new low for hackaday. Keep the self delusional religious bs OUT of hackaday. Ya know, save the space for actual HACKING stuff.

  16. eric says:


  17. runstop says:

    Wow. All I could think is WTF hackaday. Talk about disappointing. Who would think this would be a good post?

    Please don’t let this be a sign of more to come.

  18. grow up says:

    “Agreed… I’ll quit reading if I see this again.” Grow up, you little dorks; it was a joke. A little humor never hurt anyone.

    HackADay, thank you for the damn good reads each day. As for the occasional bits of pointless humor, thanks for that, too… It’s good to remember that I’m human sometimes.

  19. vissago says:


    wow. Im amazed those people had the wherewithall to operate the camera long enough.

    irc/! Rules

  22. Trez says:

    Bobbie is hot… Am I right are what? gilf material all the way. (Geek I’d Like to Fun) What were you thinking?

  23. Arlo says:

    Yes, but can they add Jesus as a friend on facebook?

  24. marz says:




  25. dan says:

    i knew only a few of us on this site have a sense of humour, but shit!

  26. hooooooooooooorj says:

    How is it that this post pisses everyone off, but the Bjork post was fine?

    They’re both pointless humor.


  27. golddigger says:

    Hilarious! By the way its not like they were telling you to repent and turn from your wicked ways, you cruel generation.

  28. greg says:

    I didn’t watch this video, nor do I read this blog but I feel I have the right to comment anyways.

  29. manfre says:

    Nice religious spam. Removing the site from my reader.

  30. g8rda says:

    You guys make baby jesus cry. Funniest video so far today.

  31. Morden says:

    I for one am really happy you posted this. Now I can integrate religion into every area of my life where I thought I was safe.

  32. ragnar says:

    I removed all the “I removed this site from my reader”‘s from my reader. Not even worth hacking their machines, since porn is widely available anyways…

  33. Richard says:

    What a bunch of completely bloodless miseries a few of you have turned out to be… if this place ‘never’ had any fluff to laugh at it would be as dry as old boots – and if you’re gonna laugh at anything at all, purveyors of jebus seem like a pretty good place to start… ;-)


  34. Gosh says:

    ouch. that made my brain hurt.

  35. sbb says:

    I was hacking around, as I always do, and changed the TCP port SCSI monitor interface modulator and suddenly lost respect for

    Seriously, wtf? Satire tag, please.

  36. nick says:

    its like being rick rolled, but with old people.

  37. poisomike87 says:

    watched this thinking i was going to learn something but instead wasted my time.

  38. eck0 says:

    to all the ppl who cant take a joke go to church and then you will see why this was funny to the rest of us. i thought the old lady knowing tech was kinnda funny and kool. hackaday 2 thumbs up.

  39. vsnine says:

    ASL bobbie?

  40. johnny2bad says:

    very amusing, but who in the hell wrote the script? It was like someone had filled out a “networking” themed Mad Libs and just decided to give it to granny to read.

  41. gabriel says:

    dammit! i read boobie instead of bobbie… so much disappointment…

  42. robbie says:

    Why is this crap hackaday?

  43. Jonathan says:

    @dan – Nice catch. I’m a web developer, so I don’t really do any networking. But, all the long complicated acronyms involved networking, so I ended up hacking together a script that was more about sounding geeky than being accurate.

    @johnny2bad – You nailed it.

  44. -hulk says:

    GRRR this nat leet haks HULK AANGRYY


  45. Thor says:

    It is time for… Grandma Hack Off! That’s right, we have been training these young ladies day and night for the past year and now it’s time we put these… security experts?… to the test. We have taser canes, seeing eye walkers, and best of all, tricked out hearing aids so they can catch the latest updates on the antique road show. So get ready and don’t for get the Bengay!

  46. spadefinger says:

    Nice one. Gramma Bobbie had me rolling. Second laugh I’ve had today, and the better of the two. The first one was when I drove by a dunkin donuts on the edge of baltimore. The only car in the lot was a city police car, and the fattest cop I’ve seen in a long time was standing out front. Classic.

    Granny spewing haxor speak beats fat cop at donut shop.

    Hands down.

  47. TTC spence says:

    To all those that said they’re removing hackaday from their reader: it’s definitely your loss. You’re a complete tool if you think this is church spam!

    Let creators have a little fun and show their true character once in a while.


  48. spindizy says:

    set lurk off

    I watched the whole video in “o.O” mode.

    To all of you who said “remove me” Good Riddance.

    Hackaday wont be turning into ebaumsworld any time soon. They will continue to provide quality hacks. What is humor if not a social hack?


    set lurk on

  49. BobbyForPrez says:

    Longtime reader. First time responder. Just wanted to post a response in support of Hack A Day posting humor such as this. Good stuff. Religious or not.

    If you don’t like it, then leave.

    That is all. Carry on.

  50. Interesting site – thanks for the info.
