Summary:Zombo has been around for many years, and yet I still find it hilarious (requires Flash). I just went back to check, and alas the introduction actually ends. But fortunately, they made it even cooler by having a text-only version. (Still requires sound.)

    My Mozilla FireFox only displays the start page, nothing more.

    I doubt that this is the whole content of the site?!?

    Yes. Yes, it is. And it’s been like that forever.

    Unatainable is below Unknown which is below Unknowable.

    I’ve always been embarrassed to say that zombo.com makes me laugh out loud every time I look at it. Glad to hear I’m not the only one =) I think it’s the slight accent that does it for me.

    My gawd, that Kenya one is bustin’ me!

    Best. Site. Ever.

    I want onto the news letter, (but the link is down) which will hopefully be "this is a newsletter from zombo.com" and that’s it. Absolutely hilarious.

    Some one told me about the site, my question is how was it forst found? It has no links or anything, so shouldn’t ever come up on a google search?

  12. Vance says:

    I think what’s important for it to be found by google etc is not that links are ON the page, but that SOMEWHERE out there, there’s a link TO it.

The content herein is an archived reproduction of entries from Raymond Chen's "Old New Thing" Blog (most recent link is here). It may have slight formatting modifications for consistency and to improve readability.

WHY DID I DUPLICATE THIS CONTENT HERE? Let me first say this site has never had anything to sell and has never shown ads of any kind. I have nothing monetarily to gain by duplicating content here. Because I had made my own local copy of this content throughout the years, for ease of using tools like grep, I decided to put it online after I discovered some of the original content previously and publicly available, had disappeared approximately early to mid 2019. At the same time, I present the content in an easily accessible theme-agnostic way.

The information provided by Raymond's blog is, for all practical purposes, more authoritative on Windows Development than Microsoft's own MSDN documentation and should be considered supplemental reading to that documentation. The wealth of missing details provided by this blog that Microsoft could not or did not document about Windows over the years is vital enough, many would agree an online "backup" of these details is a necessary endeavor.
