Journal: Another 3 1/2 years go by 2

Journal by drwho

Another 3 1/2 years ago by. Slashdot hasn't changed much. But I feel rather more alienated from the alarmism than ever. Perhaps I am jaded and fatalistic. Time goes by and I find that loud and dirty people annoy me more than large corporations. Yes, Bank of America wants to charge fees for using the debit card at stores what, I'll just move my money to a bank that doesn't. More of the same in other ways as well. Getting and keeping money seems to be more important than it was years ago, when I first started using Slashdot. I guess I am just getting old...or is it mature?

Journal: 7 years ago 1

Journal by drwho's been 6 to 7 years since I wrote in this journal thing. A dog year. A statute of limitations. Enough time for me to have acquired by doctoral degree. Enough time to get married and have kids. But I didn't do that.

When did i create my slashdot account? it would be nice to know. I'd guess 1997.

Well here now we have a new this like a journaling file system? Or somehow is it live Nah I think it's for people who don't have a web page of their own. Whee!
