This is mildly entertaining for me.

The guys over at StackOverflow.com were doing a podcast and the subject of NTP servers came up. At the end of the podcast, Joel and Jeff discuss various methods of eliminating error messages related to the Windows time service. The conversation soon moved to the idea of using the NTP.org pool of time servers. By default, Windows sends NTP traffic to time.windows.com, or somesuch. The NTP.org pool consists of time servers, run by volunteer system administrators, scattered across the globe. If you don’t know about NTP.org, I suggest you start here.

During the discussion, Jeff typed us.pool.ntp.org into his browser and was redirected to gordo.foofus.net. Gordo, you see, is a NTP (time) server participating in the NTP.org server pool.

This all happened at the end of Episode 52 of the awesome Stack Overflow podcast:

Of course, Gordo must respond to this:

Stack Overflow knows how to closeout a show:
