Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
I've never had a CFL fail. I've been replacing incandescents with CFLs whenever a bulb burns out. My oldest CFL is 7 years old and my newest is a little under 1 year old.
Many of us are still living! Just a bit dispersed here and there.
It's a happening place. There are upwards of 3, maybe 4 posts a day!
You should join us, if you like.
(message mods to join; can't let the riffraff on reddit in! Just our very own special riffraff.)
I'm impressed that I remembered mine.
TL;DR it became a shopping site in the Philippines and then went belly-up. True story.
Multiply was sold to some entity overseas. Apparently the shopping had always been there, but we were never really noticed. It was huge in Asia. Anyway, in December 2012, they shut down the social networking part of the site, which seemed really dumb because it turns out that the stores actually used the blog part of the site for their goods and there was actually never any sort of shopping cart system on the site to buy stuff.
So, yeah...the social stuff went away, and now the entire site is defunct because apparently just being a shopping site didn't work out. I think I got that all right.
On the plus side, they did give us a lot of warning and allowed us to export all of our posts into a format that could be imported into blogger, which actually also conserved the comments. I posted my on its own blogger site and sometimes peruse it still for the memories.
Getting too old to have kids, and dating a guy who has two, so I'm good.
I for one am glad that his ex-wife insisted.
I have a cat. He's pretty super.
I'll be sure to tell baldass_newbie that he needs to reverse his vasectomy so that I can have teh babiez!
I think the beta is pretty and the functionality of journals couldn't possibly be worse than it is now, so I'm hopeful.
Hey, Slashdot was instrumental in finding Twue Wuv for me, so I couldn't possibly leave it forever. The 14 day comment limit, however, is unfortunate for those of us who stop by only every 6-9 months.
I have read your updates and am interested in your lives and would love to leave a comment expressing as much.
