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 now...so 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?
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).
Wow...it'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 thingie...journal..is this like a journaling file system? Or somehow is it live livejournal.com? Nah I think it's for people who don't have a web page of their own. Whee!
