Apparently this is adult behaviour these days


Fortunately I am indeed still in touch with my inner child.

  1. As a fairly old hand at the internet, Twitter cracks me up; it’s like the worst parts of Usenet (the AOLer comments, the flames) without the good parts (the long, deep conversations about Star Trek, C programming or rhubarb cultivation).

    Not even any porn either. Cannot fathom what people see in it.

    Twitter is in that category of things that I still manage to cope quite well without.

    For that matter I have never found the need to own a rucksack and it is not difficult for me to move from place to place for hours at a time without clutching a little bottle of mineral water.

  3. I do find Twitter to be fascinating.
    It’s the only concrete evidence i’ve seen, it’s possible for a species to evolve backwards.

  4. I’d like to get involved with the whole Twitter thing, but I can’t think of a single person in the world whose opinions I want to read condensed into a single line of poorly-spelled txt spk.

    Interested – “There’s a stack of porn on twitter.”

    How would one half of all the happily married men here know?

  6. Sometimes I miss the good old days of dial-up BBS and FidoNet. In those days you found a better class of idiot online.

  7. Same way he knows there’s porn on the top shelf in Mr Patel’s newsagent. Not that married men (and women) aren’t interested in naked people.

  8. Off topic, but does anyone here of a nerdy type know a way to do an ad-hoc mailing list? I have one that runs off my hosting account, and it’s broken, and so an urgent message I need to send out is just stuck in a queue and not going out, and my webhosts don’t seem to be rushing to fix it.

    Any ideas anyone?

    Don’t feel bad, Tim. Women (seriously unattractive women, if that’s her photo in the avatar) you don’t know personally who (a) assume you’d be interested in them, and who (b) proclaim intellectual superiority (but don’t know the difference between “your” and “you’re”) (or that it’s “egomaniac” rather than “ego maniac”) tend to bring out the inner child in all of us.

    Forgot to note that she misspelled a client’s name: She has “JC Penney” as “JC Penny” in her Linked In profile.

    One can only imagine the sterling work she gave them…
