Then maybe, like me, you were on good old IRC (Internet Relay Chat) - which still exists.

No, actually it was Cix, where I still have an account. Before that I had an account on JANET. Telnetting over to the US networks from the small computer room on the top floor of SOAS felt like science fiction in 1988...

Hey, Mervyn and Chris - why don't you go over there?

All the cool kids are on Discord or Clubhouse these days Tom. Besides, Mervyn and Chris are busy looking out for those thread-wreckers you mentioned earlier.

No Feb 27

"All this irritability, intolerance, and unwarranted rudeness must be side effects of Europe's new testing scheme."

I'm rather proud to be quoted here by Mr LH (can I call you LH? - oh, it's too late, I just did), because that's what I said about HK quite some time ago. But if it helps anyone plan their self-abuse schedule in the wee hours while gazing out at the mainland in the distance, well, then ...

So we agree that there's nothing wrong here, and Angie is grossly overreacting.

Help is at hand Feb 27

I know there's been a lot of traffic to and fro lately, Lincoln, some in your favour (Tom, for example), some not (Tom, for example), and some who can't make up their minds (Tom, for example).

You have a lot going on in your head right now, so let's see if I can help you out. Why don't you step into my office and lie down on that divan? Yes, that one, the comfy one right there, go on, lie down and spit it all out, why don't you.

I know there's been a lot of traffic to and fro lately, Lincoln, some in your favour (Tom, for example), some not (Tom, for example), and some who can't make up their minds (Tom, for example).

You have a lot going on in your head right now, so let's see if I can help you out. Why don't you step into my office and lie down on that divan? Yes, that one, the comfy one right there, go on, lie down and spit it all out, why don't you.

Now, let's do a gentle analysis here, see if we can help at all. Because that's what forums are for, aren't they, to help each other out. Unless you're Julius Caesar, ha-ha, especially around this time of year, with the Ides of March just around the corner, and the forum didn't help him out very much, did it?

That's a lovely white shirt you're wearing there, by the way. Did you iron that yourself? You did? And that tie? Well, well. Very smart. A formal occasion, was it, that photo of you at the piano? Is it a piano? Or is it a desk? Or a coffin, maybe? Is that because of the necroposts? A formal occasion, anyway, behind those rather severe yellow (steady on, it's just a description of the colour - no judgments here, ha-ha) blinds or curtains or shrouds or whatever they are.

Yes, dress to impress. Strictly indoors stuff, though, or looks like. Don't you get out at all? To practise your smile, maybe. Not much of a smile there. You're not a smiler, are you? It's really easy, and you should try it, because it makes you feel much better. All you have to do is think of something nice, and your lips widen and your mouth opens, and that's all there is to it, you're smiling. And you know what they say - smile, and the world smiles with you. If you go far enough, you may even hear a sound or two, and then, you know, you're laughing, and the world laughs with you. Instead of at you. Can't think of anything nice? That's no problem. Just think of someone thinking of something nice, and you can do it indirectly. Can you do that? Good. Oh, I'm afraid your time's up. But ... well done, lad. We can build on this. Yes, we can.

Sorry, you're very mistaken!


Regarding the topic:
I don't give a damn for reviving old threads, although I find it somewhat annoying if there is an answer that doesn't add anything new or interesting, and doesn't strictly teach anything to any member.
What I don't understand is leaving an answer to esteemed deceased colleagues, which I see it as a very disrespectful behaviour.
And what I find disturbing is the people's mind. That's it!

More and more Feb 28

I notice from the list that Lincoln has decided to go on a madman's spree of opening as many old threads as possible. I would recommend that NOBODY should add any comments to them. That will make him stop. Look at the start date of each thread. If it goes away back to 2003 or something, do not get involved with it.
