    My first post: Will someone please explain '9F'?

    I am a newbe so please excuse the ignorance as I have tried to do my due diligence and search for this answer before posting. Also, this question probably doesnt deserve it's own thread so I apologize for that too. Ok, now Im walking on egg shells.

    Thanks

    Ha! Before posting I read Throatybeard's pocket reference twice even utilizing the "Ctrl F" seach feature with 'f9' as my query to no avail.

    Thanks

    9F 9F 9F!

    Clearly you needed to search for '9)' and then 'f)' and match them up


    It had been awhile since I have reread the PRG. Good to know some thing never change, but I do wonder what we could add to the 'Mercifully Extinct' category.

    I'm more of a lurker than a poster. There is more than enough valuable posts on this board to satisfy my cravings for Duke athletics and I am impressed by the organization and managment of this message board. Since I read here just about everyday and rarely ever post, I'll take this opportunity to let the board know that I've been a Duke fan since elementary school, and I'll always love Duke basketball especially since I'm blessed to atted a few men's games each year at Cameron Indoor. One thing that most true East Carolina fans (like myself) have in common with Duke is...Anybody But Carolina. By the way, I hate uconn too.

    I'm 1 day, 9 hours, 25 minutes away from experiencing the best atmosphere and rivalry in all of sports! Go Duke! GTHC, GTH!

    I would just like to say, "1s."


    And I really mean it. Particularly with regards to Mason Plumlee.



    That is all.

    Unless asking what 9F means is actually a rite of passage, it might save some unnecessary activity for a mod to add the following to this page:

    "9F is a reference to item 9f) in Throatybeard’s DBR Manifesto/Pocket Reference"

    If it is a rite of passage, then I'm sorry for having disclosed it so baldly.

    also, the chanting of Father Merrin when casting out demons

    Greg Paulus and football, for starters.

    You can tell I wrote that thing in 2005. I should update it. I'll put that on the list of things to do if I get tenure.

    One notable omission is a topic involving students complaining about how lame and quiet the Crusties are.

    So that whole "profs do nothing meaningful post-tenure" line really is mistaken....

    Indeed, 95% of the people who get tenure tend to be workaholics who can't stop themselves, and keep acting that way after tenure. Yeah, you've got roughly one underachieving Associate Professor in most departments, but these folks are exceptions that prove the rule.

    Other retirement/replacement candidates:

    15(a) -- Goestenkoers can't coach big games.

    Anything in Section 9 ("Rivals") having to do with Stanford.

    Most of Section 14 ("Meta-DBR Board Discussions"), considering that most of the sub-topics in that section are directed towards the old BBS.


    On the whole, though, I was actually impressed at how relevant much of the PRG still is, given its age.

    Just read this through for the first time, and it is, as others have noted, a pretty spectacular effort that is still almost completely relevant. I was a little surprised, though, to see no mention of two categories of posts I've seen a lot of in the past year or two--

    1) "It's over." Maybe that one is too short to need a code.
    2) Violent gerbils.

    How do you explain the Alpha and the Omega? If a creator is necessary for the universe to exist, then who created the creator? Is it better to spend your way out of a recession, or would cutting spending and lowering taxes work better?

    Not all questions can be explained. 9F is just there, like gravity.
