Missing everyone, I mean.   Has everyone else been struck by a plague or a nuclear bomb?  I have fights with computer and have been away from home on and off and when I joyfully go on this moribund computer, all the people are gone.   Sob sob, greet greet.

Good to see you, Polwarth.   Smilie_PDT  How's things?  And are you looking forward to your Edinburgh pandas?   Oh, thon was meant to be a smile, no a jester, but no matter.

I must apologise. I've been in a sort of self-imposed social and cyber limbo recently.

I think it's fallout from a greater apathy that's affecting the world.

I blame Thatcher.

I think the ability to start a Facebook private group means that the discussion forum's days are numbered. Where once you belonged to say 5 separate  forums, these days you belong to 5 separate Facebook groups. One log in gets you all the information on what has been going on in 5 separate groups with 5 separate interests. You can monitor stuff really quickly. Of course some forums stagger on a) because the people using them like the idea that they have created something unique, usually because it has their name on it.
b) some people actually realize they are indulging in extreme views and they really don't like the idea of any 'monitoring' by what they perceive to be a large organization, like Facebook for example. Of course this is  a fallacy because every internet provider monitors you, in this cyber world. Pat's playpen or MM's Fascist Farce Forum are as open to scrutiny as any Facebook profile. Forming your own discussion forum is not about shooting the breeze with your mates about this and that and how many foreigners should be lined up against walls anymore (irony!). It is not a question of your little corner shop facing off Facebook's megastore. Yet so many people believe that just because they filled in the form that the forum they named is their own private sittingroom, their space.
Perhaps it is time for CJ to found a group for the dissemination of information about marmalade, rubber gloves and the joy of lycra.

I'll join!

Trouble is, AlphaB..  ah'm no oan FB or Twitsville or whitever....  blackeye

But just imagine how the refinement quotient would rise if you did have a wee Facebook profile, that you could share with only the most deserving.
I'm no advocating it as the way Pol just saying that it seems to have become a terminus for one's internet travels...or travails, depending how you look at it. Anyway, yon CJ is a clever man, he'll know more!

But... mah auld pal is tekkin a wee brek fae the social whurl that is the net....

Whit dae ah ken?  Ah'm tekkie challengit and wull jist keep keepin oan wi the auld, version wan o t'internet...!

I'm guilty of not posting much but I have been busy doing other things. Now I have no brickdust/wet plaster etc I am enjoying the tidiness and newness of household items.
I have been on FB though, keeping in touch with family around the planet.

I will try harder in 2012 to post more but as usual with resolutions, can't guarantee that this will actually happen. I miss FF and its space for naughtiness.  

reindeer no reason for this except that I like it
