An elusive beast, often seen putting around in a TDI Jetta with a plate to match the namesake. The plate you'll see around town <TDI #1> I was Wiki-d! <TDI #2> Who tagged the dust on rear window of the car with "Wiki Dude" and the logo? I'm quite impressed!

The car is not always dusty enough to be inscribed.

Funny, I usually type it as: tar xfz — DylanBeaudette

2005-04-29 09:49:40   tar -xzvf all the way —ElvinLee

2005-04-29 11:48:55   Obviously fond of the BSD way of doing things and not the the GNU. (tar xzf for me.) —AlexGarbutt

2005-04-29 15:36:14   tar zxvf here. Or tar jxvf. Putting the z at the beginning or end makes sense, when you switch it to j. Also ls -al. —JabberWokky

2005-04-29 16:04:46   tar zxf. and ls -al, fo sho. —BrentLaabs

2005-04-29 19:48:51   Being a lefty as well, tar zxf just flows properly for me. Simple to say that folks who know me rarely forget how to handle tarballs ;) —TarZxf

2005-05-01 22:45:35   I ususally use zcat | tar x —KenBloom

2005-05-15 06:06:08   You need the v option. tar xfvz is clearly the best way to do it. —JeyKottalam

2005-06-30 21:52:43   tar -xvzf; I always put the f last because it takes an argument and you have to have the argument next to the switch. —NickSchmalenberger

2005-07-18 22:59:57   that's one damn dirty window! —MichelleAccurso Had to let it settle long enough for the picture to be taken.TarZxf

2005-07-18 23:47:01   :P —LenaGranik

2005-08-19 17:18:12   I saw this car parked near my work today —BrianDarnell

2005-08-26 10:46:52   tar xzvpf ... can't forget the permissions! —AndreyGoder

2005-09-30 11:13:40   Heh. I always have misspelled it, probably will for a long time to come. It's one of those words that I've misspelled so often I "correct" myself to the incorrect when I did it right. —JabberWokky

2005-10-25 03:24:39   I just did a #redirect to from EvanEdwards to JabberWokky myself. —JabberWokky

2005-10-31 18:33:36   Tarzxf told me his name was Bob Dole! I'm so sad that he lied! just kidding. —JohnDudek

2005-11-02 05:21:54   BOB DOLE IS A TRIPOD!!! TAR ZXF NEEDS NO VIAGRA!!!!!!! —JabberWokky

2005-12-04 20:55:57   hey, saw that you live in the Arbors. I lived there about 5 or 6 years, we moved out in October. was wondering if you're in the 250's, cuz that's where we were — it would be pretty funny if you got ours, or our neighbor's :P —AubreyJohnson

2005-12-06 00:44:46   (RE Osaka) Thanks, Tar! When I saw your edit I had the best laugh in a long time... Perhaps it was a Froidian slip... —SteveDavison

  • Could have been a butt-load of problems, there... - TarZxf

2005-12-06 00:54:36   "bowel of miso"? Hehhehehehehe. —JabberWokky

  • Could have been a butt-load of problems, there... -

2005-12-20 18:29:34   well that's how we spelled it in Germany... —AndrewBanta

2006-03-09 05:50:03   There's a question for you on the U-Haul page. —JabberWokky

2006-04-10 13:05:56   Would you please stop being a cripple damn it! Keys has asked you moderately politely quite a few times, can you not comply? —AndrewBanta

  • Hey Andrew, we'll be putting more signs up soon for you and your little gnomes to tear down. Asshole? I think I am!
    • You can take your personal attacks elsewhere. Please Grow Up. —TarZxf

2006-05-29 13:26:33   hah. I'm telling you... using your real name generates good google juice. Of course, that green party guy stole all mine. —LukeCrawford

2006-12-13 07:15:42   This is my 4,000th edit, and I'm using it to tell you that Sarah and I both miss you. We're not going to make it to CA this year for Christmas (we can drive to FL), but we'll be there next year, come hell or highwater. —JabberWokky

2007-09-17 21:02:25   Hot like fire!!! —MichelleAccurso

2008-01-20 20:14:21   No macworld this year? OR did we just not cross paths? —JaimeRaba

2008-08-12 21:45:41   I just want to let you know that yum brands is KFC, Taco Bell, Long John Silvers, and A&W. Del Taco has no association with anything YUM brands just thought you would like to know. PS I have worked for kfc three years —jap1177
