    Has Strong given up on us?

    He hasn't even come back to defend his post count...

    They are all old and infirm by now. Let us speak tenderly of them.

    Even the Viagra has stopped working. That's when you know you really are old.

    Yes, and Cry also vanished long before Strong. Is it down to us and the occasional Big Dan thanks?

    For the most part, I think so.
    Although, Cry and Strong do pop their head in here from time to time.

    Judging from his last visit here, he's probably busy making movies.

    The man has no time for the likes of us, he is one of the beautiful people now, he's a movie star. I'd email him for his autograph but I'm afraid the virtual kind do not count in the real world, so it wouldn't be worth anything. I think I'd need a snailmail version on paper before any rewards could be obtained.

    Muddy was hit by Hurricane Michael.
    Luckily, he got the family and his animals out in time and have since returned to some minor damage to the home.

    I still exist, in my own way. I spend my time trying to answer the big questions to my own satisfaction; for instance, Do vegans breast feed?

    The internet seems to be a toxic place at present and I prefer to hide away from it. My only excursions are educational sites predominantly. The rest seems too depressing to engage with. I hold out little hope for our kind and life on this pitiful rock we call home.

    How are you and yours, old friend?
    I mean, besides the terminal depression brought on by the wonderful world of interconnected personal electronic devices also known as the Internet.

    Yes, the internet has become the cess pool that I always thought it would become. Back in those glorious early days, when the net was closer in spirit to early television, I used to tell people to enjoy it because someday it will become commodified and boring just like everything else. This made some people angry, but few challenged me except the most vapid of cyber-utopians. The internet isn't here to change the world, it's here to change us. As Orwell said more than once and in many ways, "all art is propaganda."

    Vegans can breastfeed only if they don't inhale. That's what I saw scrawled on a gas station bathroom once, so it's likely true.

    I really was there for the bloody early days. The other day a group of us technical folks were introducing each other and when my turn arrived I said "I built my first website in 1997." Then I suddenly realized that the statement was absolutely true. It wasn't a personal website, either, it was the website for the place I worked at the time. It had JavaScript and everything. That still makes me go "whoa."

    Ah. You have discovered the new internet of our times. Yes, rest rooms are where it's at. But keep quiet about it or all the pretty people will want to haunt them and I just could cope with that.

    One can't even urinate in peace anymore. I was in a restaurant restroom recently and the urinal had a huge television screen right over it, so one is forced to consume advertising while relieving one's bladder. It was a new low point. I wanted to pee on the screen, but that would have taken a miracle of contortion to pull off... I would have had to dislocate my pelvis from my spine. So I resigned myself to just seething in post-privacy consumer agony.
