HOT GUIDS: A hot or not site for guids
Social software seems to be going into a lot of niche areas lately. I thought I'd try and jump ahead of the next wave and build my own social website:
HOT GUIDS - Socializing the Guid
Finally there's a place where people can vote on and discuss their favorite guids.
I've built in pretty much all the best social features. You can vote on a guid, see other votes for a guid, adopt a guid, or email a guid to your friends. And if you get sick of the guid you're looking at: with the click of a button you can move onto a whole new guid.
I'm trying to really take the long tail of human interest by storm. If I get just one customer for each guid, then I'll get... oh I don't know, it must be a *lot* of hits.
Thanks to Stack Overflow for the guid generating snippet. The web template started out the same as 'CreditCardOlogy' but with a little (Powerpoint + MSPaint + PngOut) I took it to a new place entirely.
If you're unsure what any of this is about, please read about guids (& UUIDs) at wikipedia, or try running this Simple Proof That Guid is not Unique.
And make sure email me if you see any particular delicious looking guids. There's some beauties out there.

Doesn't seem to work correctly. I'm disappointed.

What the f**k were you thinking? Your over consumption of GUIDs is going to lead to peak GUID as your profligate waste just to vote on how hot they are or not starts to work through the generation of new GUIDs.
There's only a finite number of GUIDs and I am shocked, nay, dismayed that someone could be to wreckless as to start mining the untapped GUID sources just to try to make a quick profit.
FOR SHAME SIRRAH! FOR SHAME!

I think there must be something wrong with your code. How could it be possible that there is not ANY single women in my area who are intertested in GUIDs? Oh wait, that's right, I live on the planet earth ; )
As usual LB, pure genius.

So a GUID walks into a bar and says to another GUID, "Haven't I seen you before?"

sublime. i'm going to use this at my lunchtime brown-bag GUID dojo!

Leon, I can't believe that you are exploiting GUIDs for your own personal gain, that you encourage people to objectify GUIDs like this, and that you've reduced the qualities of an entire class of unique* identifiers to nothing more than a beauty pageant and popularity contest. For shame!

Sorry Mike. It is rather crass.

"There are no single women in your area who are interested in guids."
Damn, just when I hoped I would find true love.

You could achieve a significant speedup on your site by removing that 2,500ms delay.

Check out my epic GUID that I've adopted:
<i>Word to enter: meatbag</i>

Did you go to college with this GUID?
'Andrew Jackson' on Sun, 07 Nov 2010 22:27:25 GMT, sez:
@abc redo: No I didn't, but I wish I did!
<i>Again, the word to enter was "meatbag" I hereby adopt the "meatbag" as *MY* word to enter on this site. My word and HK-47's. :-)</i>

This gave me my morning chuckle. Two years later and it's still funny!
