Hello World? (in Off-topic)

[P]Mitt October 21 2006 9:37 PM EDT

well I was playing around with the IP addresses today, and I noticed that CB2's IP is:

and I remember that CB1's IP was:

So naturally, I wondered what was on:

And it came back with a page that said "hello world!"

Any ideas what it might be?

Hehe it looks like one of the string of phrases they gave me when I was starting C++ programming, it was a DOS prompt I think that said hello world, it might be an international electronics conspiracy oO

Yup, hello world is a phrase from all manner of tutorials, a hello world program was the first step for pretty much every programming language I've tried to learn. A friend of mine even found a Hello World OS that boots up, displays "hello world" and then shuts down, or somesuch. Its even used for 30th-century fabbers.

With that in mind, my guess is that page is from some guy that did the tutorial, then gave up on the web hosting buisness. I bet he's really confused as to why he's getting so many hits lately.

What I find more intriguing is the .113 IP and especially the hostname that goes with it...

Aaargh, I thought the guy was finally gone from the net. Do something, ban the use of the words Chuck and Norris next December ;)

But then we wouldn't be able to talk about any kind of normal Chuck or Norris. :(

Hello World! is so basic. :P It only takes a month to learn how to program basic games (at least in C++)

I remember making my first 'Hello World!' program. =D
