From the ether

So does anyone read this anymore?

Life is just so.. busy .. I mean, work, kids, travel soccer, soccer soccer, trying to find time to surf, fixing up the house, taking care of the better half, boy scouts, cub scouts..

I recently refound Metafilter. And have been playing over there again. I'm like the crotchity old man, though.

So, maybe I'll update, maybe I won't. My website is broken, because I need to figure out how to change asp to php. But all this technology.. I mean, it's crazy.

And then I go and find posts and comments I made like this and say.. man, things change fast. And ask - am I still that forward thinking and insightful? Heh - a PDA that does music, calendar, games and a phone. Who'd have though of that?

Rich, seeing a post from you makes me smile. Maybe I should call you the Prophet. :)

Good to see you around, sir. Please, sir, may I have some more?

Awesome! I also predict that tablets will be wildly popular!

and as I re-read what I wrote, specifically this;

"And then, do you really need a radio in your car, a walkman, a phone, and a beeper? At the rate things are coming together, one PDA device will be a phone, beeper, and even an MP3 player that you can slide into a port in your car's dashboard, or hell, connects wirelessly to the speakers in the car and to the mic on your head so when you make a call, the music automatically decreases in volume as the PDA takes your call and your wireless earphone and mic let you speak without using your hands as you drive."

I scare myself. Especially when I know responses like "When that PDA you speak of is ready, sign me up. " were meant to be snarky 'youre completely insane, that will never happen in our lifetime' comments 'back then'.

Awww.. thank you! It was questionable there for a little while, I think.

Is that a merit badge in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

Facebook? Wassat? (giggle)

I think I opened an account one time, but I'm refusing to be able to be tracked down by family and people from high school I never cared for very much anyway.
