  • mtfnpy?

    So this may sound a bit odd, but i'm trying to save myself from a useless goose-chase if this is an ad or some sort of marketing.

    I brought home a ton of stuff from ShmooCon. Free stickers, paperwork, CD-ROMs, etc etc etc. One of these things was a sticker that just says "MTFNPY"

    Now i'm often hip to plenty of internet-enabled acronym memes. STFU, JFGI, WWJD40D, BBBJNQNSTC, etc etc etc. But this one has eluded me up til now.

    So my question is... is this something other people have heard of? Or is this just some wild goose chase marketing scam designed to get people googling all over only to find a web site selling cheap RAM or leetboy t-shirts.

    any advice?

I don't feel cool when I go there. I'm tired of seeing John Mayer's face pop up. I feel like I'm being hustled when I visit there, and I don't think their product is that great. DRM, low bit rate, etc... OiNK it existed because it filled a void of what people want."

    First heard of it at Shmoocon. It looks like yet another word for FooBar, FuBar. At least that is my understanding. It also appears to be a Perl thang. Perl Programmers out there could you please confirm.

    It could also be some type of Guerrilla marketing trying to sell merchandise about nothing; aka Seinfeld merchandising.

      Well, isn't this nice and recursive:

          We saw the sticker at Shmoocon and tried to figure it out, but there is precious little on the inturwebs about it other than (as previously mentioned) some perl references.

              Code:
              Location: United States [City: Brea, California]
              
              Preparation:
              The  reverse DNS entry for an IP is found by reversing the IP, adding it to "in-addr.arpa", and looking up the PTR record.
              So, the reverse DNS entry for 208.113.236.49 is found by looking up the PTR record for
               49.236.113.208.in-addr.arpa.
              All DNS requests start by asking the root servers, and they let us know what to do next.
              See How Reverse DNS Lookups Work for more information.
              
              How I am searching:
              Asking e.root-servers.net for 49.236.113.208.in-addr.arpa PTR record:  
                     e.root-servers.net says to go to epazote.arin.net. (zone: 208.in-addr.arpa.)
              Asking epazote.arin.net. for 49.236.113.208.in-addr.arpa PTR record:  
                     epazote.arin.net [192.41.162.32] says to go to NS3.DREAMHOST.COM. (zone: 236.113.208.in-addr.arpa.)
              Asking NS3.DREAMHOST.COM. for 49.236.113.208.in-addr.arpa PTR record:  Reports apache2-quack.peso.dreamhost.com. [from 66.33.216.216]
              
              Answer:
              208.113.236.49 PTR record: apache2-quack.peso.dreamhost.com. [TTL 14400s] [A=208.113.236.49]

                Thought this was old Perl Hacker line code for "mother f_____ _____?" Right, I can't say either.

                      Is the comment "Who cares?" appropriate to say? Maybe I'm just not feeling the vibe on this one. I am more interested in what other people might do, these days anyways.

                          Found something interesting: http://www.slideshare.net/rjbs/perl-...totally-insane

                          Sounds like it's really from Perl. 5.10 to be exact.

                          And: http://search.cpan.org/src/RHARMAN/P...Parse/Snort.pm

                          The code is something like this:

                          =cut

                          !!'mtfnpy!!';
                          No idea what it does though.

                            I'm getting the impression that it describes new features; possibly undocumented in a given language. Though nothing firm yet.
