1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    I first interacted with Jim Audiomisc on Usenet. And Yank, although that was on a private news server.

    And look where we are now.

    Wasn't there the textual "Lynx" before Mosaic and Netscape?
    I recall sitting in university, finding all kinds of places on the fresh new www (and gopher?) instead of advancing my thesis in theoretical parallel computing (which I never ended, switched to a different subject). I'd never have guessed then this is just a preview to the thousands of hours I've wasted since :)
