I don't understand any of the social networking sites. They seem to be primarily places where folks can post photos of themselves that they will bitterly regret making public later.

I use facebook all the time, both the iphone version and on the mac. I use as an occasional message service to keep in touch with far flung friends and as contact and invite mechanism for political events.

But of course I'm addicted to Twitter as well.

I was on myspace, once... I was clobbered by come-ons from former High School crushes, most of which I don't remember, because I was an upperclassman who deigned not dwell on lowerclassmen, tho they crushed on me heavily.*

Facebook, I haven't bothered with at all.

There is a ton of online crap I have deemed worthless, from texting to social networks to p2p, which, despite their popularity, have proven worthless, or, at the very most, not as good as advertised.

Once I discovered how Facebook treated my privacy I got out if there.

Facebook is great for keeping in touch with old friends.

Why doesn't e-mail work for that? I'm not getting it.

Because Facebook is more passive. Friend X posts something he's doing or an update and you choose weather to respond. He/she isn't directing it to you, but you can respond. An e-mail requires one of you to initiate a conversation.

That's what Spork is for.

...and one of those idiots who thinks they have my e-mail address just signed me up for Facebook again. Sigh. At least Facebook has the decency to confirm the e-mail address before starting the account. I wish there was a way to tell these companies that certain e-mail addresses will NEVER be used to set up accounts.

a work around would be to use the email to setup an account and then suspend it. then the email address will be in the system but no one will see the account it's attached to.

Posted in the gaming thread: World of Warcraft is now illegal to sell in Australia.

Well, it seems that the Piratebay.org is going to have a calm sea in the next few days.

Before testimony began, however, further adjustments were made by prosecutors to the language in the indictment.

A sentence reading, “All components are necessary for users of the service are able to share files with one another” was struck completely from the description of the crimes.

In addition, the phrase “provide the ability to others to upload torrent files to the service” was changed to “provide the ability to others to upload and store torrent files to the service”.


I'm not sure if there is going to be a case left after the trail, it might just be outright dismissed.

I'm less optimistic.
