Unhappy um... what/who is slackhappy and #slackhappy?


Just surfing threads and sites late night and stumbling across a blog site called slackhappy, which led to the chan #slackhappy, and then some less than complimentary irc logs; I wanted to ask,

"Who or what is/are slackhappy/#slackhappy and what the heck is going on with that?

The blog site has posts but no time stamps, I've been able to ascertain that, whatever it/they is/are, it/they has/have only been around for about six months.

What is up with that?

It seems like a rather kooky thing as well as the goings on.

Someone want to enlighten me?

I found this on Robby's website, after some googling. I'm reading it myself now, as I'm curious..

Thumbs down

Okay I see what's going on. The guy's a whackjob and a stalker.

Near the end of that page, Robby acknowledges to himself that the correct approach is to ignore the bozo.

I had a stalker once. She scared me so bad I moved out of my own house in between the 45 minute intervals that she would come by and get all crazy, banging on my door, threatening to call the cops if I didn't leave her alone or stop calling (I didn't even answer my freakin' phone, until my number had been changed - let alone call her).

You can't reason with people like that - they're broken, somewhere inside, in a fundamental way.

And if your stalker is a girl you can't call the cops either - they'll just make fun of you.

So basically slackhappy is something done by Chris Punches? Haha - I remember him well from #slackware, (where I constantly lurk but don't really contribute unlike others), and his rants and stupid comments used to give me a lot of mirth. He had a reputation in the channel which was not good! I remember him talking about starting his own channel so this must be the result then? I especially like the channel topic if this is his work :
Quote:
"Quality Linux Technical Support | Phone: 4-1337-68586 / (413)-376-8586 | channel rules: http://slackhappy.org/channel-rules | contact: http://slackhappy.org/contact | slackware mirror: http://mirror.slackhappy.org | Community Wiki: http://community.slackhappy.org | Channel is publicly logged"
Not quite accurate unless he's changed a lot!

I'm curious as to how it all started with this guy. In any case, some of Robby's responses to him are priceless .

Those are all very professional-looking, beautifully done websites. (NOT being sarcastic).

They are just themes.

http://community.slackhappy.org/: Mozilla Cavendish Theme based on Cavendish style by Gabriel Wicke
slackhappy.org: teknium css wordpress theme

Though I have to say it is nice.

I've just whois'd slackhappy.org - and it is Chris Punches - I wasn't sure. To be honest the sites you've both linked to don't look at all bad to me (you should see some of my efforts to know what I mean there) so I'm currently quite impressed with the guy's abilites. Even if it isn't his work or even templated/CMS'd stuff. Then again. I'm easily impressed when it comes to website design .
