Living Room / Re: How do you spend your time on the computer?
« on: January 23, 2007, 01:56 PM »
The main result of my extensive - timewise - computer use would be the many gigglebytes of apps (constantly updating, seldom installing), videos, pics, jokes (sent/received via e-mail - I save/archive an H of a lot of my outgoing and incoming e-mails), etc.  I've recently got into the difficult - for my pitiful grey cells, at least - area of riddle games (weffriddles, ouverture-facile), which is (a) frustrating and (b) elating (when I finally figure out a level).  Have a list of sites I visit every day, and participate a little in some forums (e.g. one has Musical Mondays, when we each post a few music videos, almost inevitably from YouTube - good stuff, usually).  I am not wasting time on the computer, time is wasting me...

[Now I'm going to fill the Cody's Club task of making a donation to a forum participant but, because I want to see what happens, I'm gonna try and give myself a donation - let's see if/how mouser has that handled...  BTW, I'll get around to making a real donation, too.] [Indeed, and as expected, mouser had it handled: "Sorry, you cannot donate to yourself (why would you want to?) - donations were NOT processed."]

Boo, hoo, hoo, hoo...  :(

I still think Cody needs a girlfriend...  :)

Hey, and Happy New Year!!  :Thmbsup:

They should take them back even further, before Atari.  The wonders of Star Trek on a Decwriter, The Wumpus, Colossal Cave, Zork...  The kids will think it unbelievable that anyone actually used a computer to play such stuff (and what's a "mainframe", anyway?).

Boy, am I old...

Thanks, mouser.  Whiled away a little time refreshing/reloading the search page - the five "featured" patents change each time that is done...

General Software Discussion / Re: Do you use RSS feeds?
« on: April 05, 2006, 01:23 AM »
I use Newsgator because it has a reasonable interface and, eh, it's a free service I can access from any networked computer.  I, too, have way too many feeds (so get rid of some, dummy), and have found that, once you get behind, it can be almost impossible to catch up.  I must have 1500+ articles which I have yet to assess!  Help...  [Can't keep up with e-mail either.]

A very interesting and useful newsletter this time around!  [Should I say "like always"?]  Now, if I just had the time and energy to contribute to the Forums...

Yes, an enjoyable - as always - newsletter!  This issue had me left-clicking away there for a while...
