FAQ is an abbreviation for
"Frequently Asked Question(s)". The term refers to listed questions and
answers, all supposed to be frequently asked in some context, and
pertaining to a particular topic. Since the acronym originated in textual
media, its pronunciation varies; both "fak" and "F.A.Q." are commonly
heard (and therefore, when used with an indefinite article, it is either
"a FAQ" or "an FAQ"). Depending on usage, the term may refer specifically
to a single frequently-asked question, or to an assembled list of many
questions and their answers. An alternative suggestion is that FAQ is
actually a clumsily-constructed three letter acronym purported to have
come from computer IT specialists, frustrated with answering over and over
again the same, perceived
stupid questions from computer users, and which secretly stands for the
pronunciation "fah-queue". For example: "Please read the FAQ list to
ensure your question has not already been answered before bothering the
overworked IT department".
fUSION Anomaly. FAQ
tracing the memetic roots of
the name "fusion anomaly." - it was based on a record label called
Anomaly. that me and a friend, a. ward, started in the early nineties. we
put out a few emo-based punk records for
our friends. realizing that business and music didn't mix within my
personal realm, i abandoned it, mainly due to lack of distribution
channels. little did i know that the internet
would soon change everything. the other important thing i learned was that my role was solely based
on capital. i learned that spending money wins you a lot of temporary
friends and attention,
but it is neither fulfilling unto itself, nor is it very progressive in
the sense of accomplishment. you can do a lot with money, but you can do a
lot more when you substitute it with time and craft.
i got the word anomaly from the
film 2001: a
which had a tremendous impact on my life. the monolith
discovered on tycho clavius moon was TMA-1,
or "tycho magnetic anomaly-1".
after abandoning punk and the scenes
attached to it, i revived the word and added "fusion" to make it
more new edge, not
to mention incorporating my new taste in electronic music.
current modalities were initiated
when i got into psychedelic trance.
i wanted to know what the hell "Green Nuns Of
The Revolution" meant. when i found out, i wanted to do this for
everything goa-related. currently, the focus is no
longer on goa, but anything atomjack

The F A Q/S C
frequently asked questions/stated comments
Q : what is it?
@Om: i don't know
Q : where did you get the idea for it?
@Om: i made it up as i went along
Q : what is the purpose?
@Om: to find personal fulfillment in the process
Q : it's huge. how long did it take you to do it?
@Om: as it states on the front page, i started it late 1997. a primitive
form of it existed in various manifestations since 1995. it is never
"complete". i work on it a little bit every day. it just seems vast because
you're trying to take it all in at once. it really isn't.
C : i was (shocked/surprised) that you did not include (x/y) under your
@Om: you shouldn't be.
C : i want you to include (x/y) in your (x/y) node.
@Om: feel free to make your own web site.
Q : who runs the site?
Q : how many people run the site?
@Om: 1 (2 including my admin)
C : your design sucks, it looks like it's from the mid nineties
@Om: that's because it was started in the mid nineties. i don't claim to be
a designer, and i would never want to be. besides, it filters out people who only look for design, or
want to see some flash, or something or other... if you don't like the way
it looks then please don't look at the site.
C : those animated .gifs are giving me a headache.
@Om: i recommend advil.
C : you should check out (url) as you will find it very interesting.
@Om: if i have time, i might check it out.
C : if you would advertise our product (x) under (y) node it would be great.
a link exchange would be mutually beneficial.
@Om: there will be no intentional
advertising on the site. it is one big advertisement for stuff i like
anyway, and i decide what i like to show and what i don't. asking for
accommodations only decreases your chance of mention. my emphasis is on pull technologies, not the traditional
push/marketing approach. this process filters out unnecessary hype and those
who actively participate and seek out what they are looking should be able
to find it, instead of something else like spam or marketing research teams
pushing it in their face.
Q : i see links to mp3's, but i can't seem to download the song... what am i
@Om: nothing. they aren't available for download because bandwidth and
storage are limited at this point. if you would like to pay for a server
with more favorable credentials, please email me. :) if you are interested
in obtaining the mp3's, get on gnutella and download them. that is where i
got them. p2p is here and running. the web interface
is not a good medium for sharing files.
