"There's no place like 127.0.0.1" can be more hilarious if used as an Oscar Wilde quote. --Unissakävelijä 10:14, 24 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Most of you know this, but don't listen to the nice man over there in the article tab. In fact, boycott all article tabs. I'll start. -Bob the Mediocre
I don't understand 18.104.22.168's adding another "ever" to "worthless posts ever seen in modern wikis".
Init, ping Edit
Just to confirm, the init and ping commands *should* be safe to include on this page. Why?
- "ping" doesn't really do anything. It has about 0 security issues, and is safe for anyone to run.
- "init" (*nix only) requires superuser access by default, so actually trying it will just produce an error normally. If the user is a superuser, I think it'll shut down the PC as normal (equivalent to "shutdown -h now"), so should still be safe(ish). Mind you, anyone actually running as superuser ought to know this already.
I think may be taking this a bit to seriously, so I will say 'while (true;) do echo "Kazoo"; done' - and so the madness is restored. --H2g2bob 23:23, 17 March 2006 (UTC)
But init is linux and nobody would get that unless you're l33t h4x0r like m3. --Psychiccyberfreak 01:32, 17 November 2006 (UTC)
- Depends. Many IRCers on #uncyclopedia run Linux. Not all distributions are for "l33t h4x0rs". - User:Guest/sig 09:36, 17 November 2006 (UTC)
Ping screenshot Edit
That's an outrageous lie! It can't be from my computer. I use Linux, remember? - User:Guest/sig 05:03, 28 November 2006 (UTC)
I went to Wikipedia, Edit
and all I got was an excessively geeky low-down. Can anyone explain precisely why this ISP is so infamous? —Lenoxus 16:47, 18 February 2007 (UTC)
+.+". Nice one User:Lenoxus.... Just in case you weren't joking: (Warning: Actual facts ahead)
The IP address 127.0.0.1 is used mainly to be being able to communicate with one's local machine as though it were a remote machine. Basically talking about the machine you are on right now. 22.214.171.124 07:01, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

127.0.0.1 begs the question, 192.168.1.1 Edit
Personally, I'm sick of all this obsession with 127.0.0.1. It's as though everyone wanted to loop back to this topic again and again.
I far prefer the Lankiness of 192.168.1.1. While it can sometimes be Routed, there is a really profound question here. It is 192.168.0.0.
And I can't really decide between 192.168.100.1 and 192.168.100.0. So close, and yet so far. Well, that's it. So far.
For retards Edit
127.0.0.1 is you. --188.8.131.52 16:37, July 9, 2011 (UTC)
