Especially if you have to wait for the one bathroom.

Oh no, don’t worry, there are millions of bathrooms in this room.

About 7 Billion on the planet, all in the same room already. So what's the problem with people being able to share pictures of cats with some text?

Maybe we should talk about how a house divided is at a disadvantage when in competition for resources or under siege.

Apple's IOS is up to 13.1.3 already. If you depend on your phone or PC, maybe it's not a good idea to update the operating system the same week as the .0 version goes public. From Forbes today

Greg has most likely not entirely left the internet... news has it that both medical records and facial recognition data are on the cloud.

Remember the old carny gag where they would announce on the public address system to beware of pickpockets? The rubes would pat the pockets with the wallets in them, from which action the finger-smiths would take their cue.

Love how on the front page they tout themselves as into "green energy" and then you notice that one of their subsidiaries is this:

When private hedge funds start talking bout "disruption," the only thing they're trying to disrupt is the flow of money away from their eager hands.

In other news someone demonstrated that power grids and generators can be damaged by software updates and a few toggles of the on/off switch.

So it's not so much whether you leave the internet as whether the internet leaves you (in the dark).

Yes. I was able to put in an older version of the OS system. I still lost a ton of info that I'll never get back: notes, movies, pdfs, ideas, stories, etc... but I just have to get used to that. The reality is I know I've lost stuff I don't even remember I had... and that causes a bit of anxiety from time to time.

Thankfully some of the guys that I bought various effects and books over the years have sent me replacements. Since I'm using an older OS I still have a few problems, but none as bad as what happened that cleared out my old hard drive.

Anyway, it's been a bit of an uphill battle, and truthfully, sometimes I feel it really wasn't worth getting back online, but here I am. Oh, well.

Thanks. There was only one other place I missed not being on, other than The Magic Café, and the other one WASN'T Facebook. Smile It's nice being back.

One cannot escape the virtual world because the real world is virtually nothing. To create something is to make a thing from nothing and this nothing is virtually this thing.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.
