Haven't seen a post here since Frank Sinatra on the 8th. Did Mozilla
finally shut it down?
Well, I guess I livened it up a little anyway! :-)
I really miss the "good ol' days" when folks used to get excited about
stuff! When "JoeS", "The Purple Hippo", "Jay Garcia" and others I can't
remember, used to see who could develop the neatest scripts to animate
things and argue about "top posting" vs "bottom posting" etc.. But I
guess as Thomas Wolfe said, "You Can't Go Home Again"! :-(
I miss usenet. Some of the 'friends' are still around on facebook,
but it's not the same. Or even close.
I wish Jay would come back and tell us how he's doing.
I'm still in a couple of active groups: alt.tv.law-and-order, originally
about the tv show, but now mainly a current affairs group, and
soc.history.ancient, which is sometimes a bit cranky, as you can imagine.
Some of the linux groups and sci.electronics.repair are still alive. I
keep watching a long list, but most are inactive.
Lot of us old timers miss usenet when it was in its prime. There are
some active groups that spammers have missed but when they find them
they pollute them.
Latest assault -- 'Looking for man 35-55 for long walks on beach....' etc.
Looking for love in all the wrong places. We deal in sarcasm, friend.
Don't you just KNOW that there is more than one
Sierra Club member who is absolutely sure that the
dinosaurs died out because of something humans did?
