I suspect that John would agree with what you say, Alec. He has participated in the past. On the other hand, he has been particularly busy recently, as he says, and I can understand that he might not have time to participate or enjoy in nonsense. I find nonsense to be pretty relaxing, particularly after a long day of the kind of official nonsense that floods my office (why is it that teaching has to be submerged by all this administrative crap?!). I'm also inclined to think that nonsense has a pretty sensible core, usually, so I also find some of what passes for nonsense here to be stimiluating (and I don't mean only your desktops ). But then I find King Lear to be most sensible when he is at his craziest, and think almost all of Beckett's absurdities to be a pretty accurate reflection of life.<br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"

yes, i agree with alec... it's not that I don't enjoy these forums, its just that there's virtually no mac talk, and that's what would keep me coming back on a regular basis...<br><br>and if there is real macintosh talk, it gets thrown here in the lounge, and gets burried by all of the BS posts, and I'm not intersted in dodging those landmines...<br><br>so, i'll likely pop back in here once a week to check on things, but as far as being a poster, i'm pretty much gone from the lounge.<br><br>I'll check the other forums though, to help out the lost/misguided when and where I can...<br><br>I'm still busy as all get out though.<br><br>john<br><br><br>"In the old days, you'd finish a day's work and announce, 'I'm done.'

I'm glad you'll still be around. I could never expect everyone to put up with or join the shinnanigans we perpetrate in here. But there is some good info and discussion in the other forums.<br><br>Cheers, John!<br><br>[color:red]Alec</font color=red>
I see you decided to stick around. That's good. I hope there are no bad feelings about us having fun here. I understand what it's like to be busy. I think you will still be able to find more than enough mac talk here.<br><br><br><br>
I think the good natured fun is refreshing. It's good to get silly from time to time as long as it's not hurtful. There are a few over at MC that are so locked into their agenda that they are running off some good people.<br>Not to name names, but we all know who they are and what their agenda is. <br>As for me, I prefer the fun stuff for my entertainment. Especially when it is done by fellow Mac people. I also have learned a lot in the more informative threads. Thanks for that.<br><br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by sross on 09/21/02 09:59 AM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
Well, I have no idea who/what he was talking about in his threads? Care to elaborate? Unless you mean NTO1's usual BS, which led to SteveG leaving...<br><br>I don't visit MC much, so I don't know what they're doing over there.<br><br><br><br><br>[color:red]semicolon dash parenthesis</font color=red>
