Every time I see an insincere LOL I want to plant a claymore and perforate the poster. Did you really laugh out loud? Really?

I'm really unhappy by the insincerity of the internet these days. Either state your feelings or move on. LOL? Really? ROTFL?

BTW, cell dweebs, we nerds used these shortcuts on bulletin boards before cellphones were a wet dream. Before the WWW was a wet dream. Anyone remember dial-up 1200/4800/9600?

Hayes? Ha!

I suppose LOL is better than LOTIATITWFBSTWITRIDNAGOL (laughing on the inside at something I thought was funny but since they weren't in the room I did not actually guffaw out loud).

Any yes, I remember Telex and the melodious sound of dial-up and having to wait your turn to get onto a bbs.

You really had to want your porn to wait for it on dial-up.

I used to go to my buddy's house to download new apple games on his 300 baud modem. It would take 2 hours to gt a game.

I remember those days... I think our first modem was 300 baud... Back when you had two colors on the screen and one of them was dark.

I remember when cell phones were more car phones because the damned things were too big to carry around. Or you used an entire briefcase to carry it around.

Hear the squelch and grind of the modem? The sound was cool, the speeds were pathetic (by today's standards).

Man, some of us sound like such old farts...

I remember when the best printer you could get was dot matrix. Photographs were film only, requiring lab work. Color monitors were a pipe dream still (for computers). The biggest TV you could get was 19" across and that was considered a BIG TV.

I was usually spent after 15 minutes of anticipation just waiting for the boobs to DL 1/3rd of the way into the pic.

I remember 9-pin vs. 24-pin dot matrix.

I wrote an awesome 1st person game on a DEC mainframe back then. Wish I still had the code. Lots of goto's, LOL
