This reminds me of trying to buy Burning Man tickets this year. I pressed the button two seconds too late. Darn.
once again boing is not only behind the times (and a lot on this one) but missing the point and just posting something for hits. please boot the neckbeards.
Pray tell, what is the point, oh wise one?
Wow, 3 posts total, all complaining about how awful the site is. Why are you still here?
I think it might be referring to the nascent culture surrounding the button. It’s quite acerbic.
Does your mother know what a fine person you are?
He’s probably just a filthy purple. We all know how those types are.
Knowing nothing about coding, I’m going to go ahead and assume it would be easy to create a process to mind the timer and push the button on your behalf?
… wait, this is when I find out the creators of the button are already selling the app for 99 cents?
Are you trying to get on The List?
Well, it is Reddit, afterall.
You only get to push the button once.
Or, “How To Keep An Idiot In Suspense”
Maybe the user requests how late they are willing to “wait”.
Windsinger’s songs have been silenced. Bravo!

I understand the buttonn, but I don’t understand button-pressers. You only get one shot, and there are more or less unlimited slots above 50s. I won’t settle for anything higher than 10. Then again…
Note to self: set a calendar reminder for 8/21/2042@18:33 to get some popcorn ready as all the trolls’ account bans expire and they come streaming back.
Apparently the Most Useless Machine isn’t just a metaphor.
I should pay closer attention to those ban expirations. I think one I saw was for several hundred years.
So, are you going to tell us or not?
