(drizzt3117 @ Feb. 17 2005,20:26) I remember when MOSAIC came out... now that was a long time ago
I was always jealous of those bastards who could run Mosiac. I had a Mac Classic II (monochrome machine and not powerful enough to run a graphical browser) so I was forced to run Lynx for two years before I could afford a PC so I could join the party for real. I miss that browser though...

He's a kid. Kids are all the same until reality makes its unpleasant appearance.
Listen, kid or no kid, he is a wanker. Accept it and move on. Jon. Where is our mystery man anyways? He stopped posting...must be on a conference call from his helicopter (although he did have net access in Versailles...that Louis was one forward thinking king, getting broadband installed before it was invented)

I've always admired Louis XIV for his tact, and taste. He justifiably could proclaim: "L'etat, c'est moi."

man... what you talkin' bout, willis?.. Lynx IS for real. And be glad you had a Mac, I was stuck with a goddam CoCo (which I loved nonetheless).. Who needs them flashy annoying GUI's with all their stupid mouse clicks and popup windows and annoying dialogues asking if you really wanted to delete something. Of course I wanted to delete it. Why else would I have done that? No thanks man... CLI and SSH all the way baby. It's as easy as "rm".
Ha ha, I would expect no less from a Linux man. Personally, I had my fill of CLI after years of DOS and Unix. I appreciated the power and flexibility that a CLI offers you but I was happy when Windows 95 came out and I bought my PC. I come not to praise Microsoft -- believe me on that. -- but the software (along with Netscape) gave me a WWW that images.

Uhm... no offense, but DOS could hardly be considered a real CLI. For instance, this little unix one-liner does wonders: find ~/Maildir/.SPAM/* -type f -mtime +1 -exec rm {} ; Deletes all spam older than 1 day without even touching a mail client. Can't do that on windoze or dos. Anyway... I will stop geekin' on everyone now.

I really have to find that place again.  Anyway... why go off on some kid like that?  Even if he is full of sh*t, which he may or may not be, what is the point of saying that he'd get hurt in Los Angeles or Boston?  That is just silly.  And what afterhours club in Inglewood are you referring to?
I don't recall immediately the name of the specific afterhours I was thinking about but was in a light colored pillbox bunker type of building.  Does that help you any?  I figure I'd take him to the Dragonfly beforehand (he'd probably get in with a proper fake ID), where I got the info from about the afterhours in the first place.  South Boston clubs I'm not particularly familiar with, but I know loads of native Irish Bostonians who'd be more than happy to help educate this pr**k. No, LA is not that dangerous, although there are some sketchy areas that you wouldn't immediately think of, El Monte, for example, with its larger than fair share of skanky strip clubs and the accompanying sketchiness. My point was that he would learn a little more humility and stop calling honest people butt ugly and poor, if he was taken out of his little dream world for a while.  My idea maybe wasn't the best one.  Maybe globetrotter could persuade him to join the Israeli army for, say, a week?
actually that is the responsiblity of the fool paying his bills.if they want to raise him right, they should take away his watches and make him work summers in construction or some such work where he will have a chance to learn from real people a little bit about the real world. it will make him much happier as an adult.
People from families like ours do not work for people.[/quote] I have some cousins. their great great grandfather founded a food brand that pretty much every american knows (alas, the money comes from the other side of the family). they are very well to do, as in having matisses and modgilianis on the wall of their family house, and in having a yaht with a crew big enough to take more than 10 guests across the atlantic. to me, that is as rich as I care about. my cousins grandparents worked their whole lives, every day, as doctors. they didn't have to. my cousins parents worked every day, even though they didn't have to. my cousins work every day, even though they don't have to. they have been to some fo the best schools in the US, and they might not be either rocket scientists or heros, but they see nothing wrong with work. by the way, I had the pleasure of working with the Ambanis (possibly a name you know) a little, those gentlemen also come into work every day. true, they work for themselves, but they didn't always.

Uh huh.  Uh huh.  Okay.  Um, can you repeat the part of the stuff where you said all about the... things?  Uh... the things.

LOL - this cracked me up, at least the ten minutes I spent reading this thread wasn't a complete waste of my life.

I've always been a fan of Jack Welch's advice - every once in a while go home and scrub your toilet. As for comments on this thread - I made Bart in my pants A.
