message in a broken bottle

hmm, still reading books and being creative? you escaped the ravages of time and apparently haven't conformed to a mundane existence involving couches and potatoes... - lucky you, silly me.

Re: message in a broken bottle

Old people read books too!

I was wondering what had happened to you a few months ago. Mostly because I have a terrible terrible secret which I shall now reveal: I still log on to Mono BBS, but am slowly becoming one of the Scanner Folk. Yes, I have started scanning diaries. They are not updated that much these days, so I scan them. I feel guilty about it, very guilty. I am not deliberating reading people's diaries, by typing the correct namepath, instead the system makes me read them, all of them.

You poor thing, still on Mono? I gave up and was kicked out (not sure about the order) as soon as my paranoid insanity had ran its course... still, I stand by my achievement of incensing so many random strangers with a topic as obscure as scanning - well done younger-me!

Even though my brain has become blandly smooth in premature old age, I think I may make a blog to record the varying cardboardy textures of its blandness. I'll add dull uninspiring comments to your blog once I'm up and running. Don't worry, it won't happen for a while yet - I have very important episodes of Countdown on sky+ to get through first.

In the meanwhile, try not to get yourself kidnapped by creepy tree-botherers!

Re: message in a broken bottle

I am not sure why I still use Mono really. I am often irritated by the people on there, but where else should I log on to? I even lately tried other BBSs. (There are still some others out there!)

Blandly smooth sounds almost interesting in its mundanity. You should definitely blog about it, and then I could leave dull comments on it too.

Re: message in a broken bottle

Even though you have not logged onto Mono since 2004, you are still 362 on the spod quotient list.

Have disturbingly failed to turn back into cockroach. But am otherwise well.

Yet to visit clock tower and pass on your fond wishes.

Book I love most: Probably The Young Lady's Illustrated Primer or, if I'm not allowed fictional books, maybe The C Programming Language by Kernighan and Ritchie

Nearest book: Computer Networks by Tanenbaum is conveniently the right thickness to bring my display to eye height. It has served this role very well for six years, more than can be said for its value as a textbook.

I do not seem to have turned back into a cockroach either. Perhaps I always was a cockroach?
