Since I became a Facebook user I still visit forums with the same regularity. To me, visiting a forum is like going to a jazz club or custom car show where the discussion topics are mostly related to a specific theme whereas Facebook is more like meeting friends for coffee or a picnic. There is no t...

I have been blogging for about 7 years and although my blog is in the public domain, one of the main reasons for doing it was catharsis and self-reflection. When Facebook introduced the option to automatically import new posts from blogs I continued using my blog for a year or so but gradually began...

Are these free public access wireless networks or unsecured private networks? (Nice laptop by the way.)

I was thinking "Music? What music? I totally missed that". Then I read on and realised that I watched the ceremony on the BBC.

The (probably) tokenistic mix of the players doesn't sound very subtle.

Made up words

Just before Christmas I was discussing movies with a collegue and she brought up Star Wars. I asked whether she watched the original cinema release. She just looked at me strangely so I asked why. She said "I'm only 30 you know!" Was 1977 really 32 years ago? Yikes!

Re: Facebook - any good??

Personally, I choose to make myself notorious on the internet by using my real name on facebook, twitter, YouTube, etc. (although I do not reveal my identity here and some other places... and even so, if someone did choose not to respect my privacy here, I say nothing online here that I'd be upset ...

I see Facebook as part of my therapy. The more time I spend communicating with virtual friends, the less time I spend communicating with imaginary friends. That's better isn't it? No? You're probably right. I worry my attempt at humour may have made me seem a little harsh. I have often regretted typ...

We have the similar problems. I usually hear something break as I force the lid closed. What bugs me the most is how the tree lights become tangled as I take them out of their own box after previously putting them away tangle-free.

Re: Facebook - any good??

I used to be a member but quit after a year or so. I didn't like being friends, pinched, poked, invited and having people write on my wall. Altogether too much housework. Dataryder That stuff did get a bit silly for a while but it seems to have calmed down after I removed those "friends" ...

I use Facebook to keep in touch with some old friends, ex-collegues and family members. I have about a dozen contacts but we don't often use the instant messaging facility as we were using msn messenger before Facebook started. I have also set my account to automatically import any post I make to my...

I second the motion. This by far my favourite forum. It's so nice to mix with such a pleasant bunch of folk.
