I remember coming to this site, it used to have a chat room, that is where I used to hang out most of the time. I met a lot of my friends there. I still keep in touch with some of them.

I remember there used to be the trolls that would come in and try to start fights. The great thing about the chat room, we could hit the "ignore this user" button, and viola! They could continue to make asses of them selves, and we didn't see it. Used to piss them off royally that they couldn't get a rise out of anyone because they were ignored. I miss the chat rooms, they used to be a riot.

Then, I started reading the blogs. I wasn't participating yet, just reading them. And some of the blogs were just fun. Laughing, playful, outrageous, and just all out fun. Sure, arguments sprouted sometimes, sure, there were trolls sometimes. But people kept having fun. I often wonder, what happened to the fun here. And I realized that a lot of those from back in those days have moved on. They have found their life's love, or they have found other sites where they can still have fun, but the sites also have games to play, or we can share things without having to worry about the lurker whose only goal is to harass others.

There are millions upon millions of sites out there. Eventually, people move on, find other sites to hang at. Not because some lone moron "chased" them off, but because that other site they found, has more to offer. It's a competition out there. I wish AMD would bring back the chat rooms, but, I can also see why they don't. Some game apps would be great, but then they would have to charge for membership in order to afford it.

But ya know...I still like coming to this little corner of the Net, it's nice to stop in and see friends and say hello. And as always, I do look forward to making new friends.

It appears there is a cockroach problem...but don't worry folks, it will be squashed soon enough.

Yeah, it's all changed. Sadly, some things don't change for the better. I hope to write more blogs here...and not those boo-hoo ones I've been writing either...I just needed to get some shit off my chest and this is a good place to do it.

I've left here a number of times yet I still come back...I kinda like it here, too. Sorta like a second home where I can kick off my shoes and relax. I suppose I'll be here 'til this place closes its doors. I miss my emoticons. Some say if I'd download foxfire I could use them but I had foxfire at one time and it irritated Zelda for some reason. She began to refuse to cooperate and when I dumped foxfire, she was happy again.

But like WoW said....it's the dead of winter here in my neck of the woods and man, is it ever gonna get cold next week. That means I won't be stickin' my nose outside for awhile so maybe it's story time? Or just a good old nonsensical blog or one reminiscent of old times gone by...it's time to get the cotton outta my head and get back to what I enjoy...writing!

Yanno, I never did the chatroom much. I was new enough and had never been in one and I found it difficult to follow. I began right away in the blogs and that was more to my liking then the chat room so this is where I spent my time.

I miss that window of time when this place was busier than Grand Central Station and there was only occasional squabbles. Then an idiot would come in and start something and we'd all gang up on them and the opinions flew as we got in heated discussions over some shit or the other. It was lively and thought provoking and challenging.

I'd like to see this place liven up again but I don't know if I could jump in like I use to...I've changed so much since I came here (AMD) in something like 2007. My life has changed and I don't know that I could be fiesty or a spitfire anymore. I use to get pissed and come out swinging but anymore, I think I'd leave that to the youngbloods....newbies...if they'd learn how to write good blogs. That'll be the day...sigh

Used to be a time I'd do the same, jump in fighting. But, what does it really accomplish? It's just words on a screen, nothing more. It's so much easier to just shut off the computer and walk away.

I know you say Zelda doesn't like Firefox, so have you ever tried Google Chrome? It's a good browser. Sometimes when Firefox is acting like a witch, I'll switch to Google Chrome.

As to blog material, I don't mind the jokes, I'd rather someone have a sense of humor than someone unstable who thinks they can run people off.

The site isn't what it used to be. They're latest upload of software late last year caused some major problems with people using i.e. Since then it's taken the fun out of trying to post blogs anymore.
