et alia

I always like the concept of USENET, Gnutellia, Podcasts, et alia. No central control. Even if the creators, corporate backers, et alia, should go away they will still continue. Look at those chumps that liked NeXT, BeOS, et alia, *puff*, they are gone. If Mr. Torvold, Mr. Stallman, et alia, fell into one of Mr. Dunderbeck’s machine GNU/Linux would still go on.

So, I missed an Internet cultural revolution. Online communities of people I’ve never met with easy to use interfaces (sorry USENET). I’ve had a few online acquaintance but they have all faded out after a time. I skipped things like Frapper, MySpace, et alia, as they have central control. I was listening to a Podcast the other day, and the announcer asked me to put myself on his Frapper map. *click*, *click*…*type*, *type*, a little pin over Yardley, PA, USA (er Morrisville, PA, stupid shared Zip Code) with my name on it was now there.

I day or so later Frapper sent me email, The following members have joined since you last checked .... A few hours after that username from location would like to be your friend. “Lemonade? I made it just for you!” Was this friend I cry in the dark for help? A lonely soul grasping at the last vestiges of hope to a stranger who listened to the same Podcast? No, it was some band trying to promote themselves. I guess they got the email The following members have joined since you last checked\nSven Heinicke. Plus, when I visit my Frapper account it tells me “Currently you do not have any friends.” Now I’m depressed, perhaps on my last vestiges of hope and should reach out to strangers who listen to the same Podcast as I. Perhaps I should start a band?

Well, I haven’t tried to remove my Frapper account yet, and the band did have some cool songs on there MySpace page. I’m considering making this band my friend. That way I will not be reminded that I “do not have any friends.” Sigh.

Some people can`t afford health insurance so they have choice to pay for the really expensive prescription drugs or look after cheap generic drugs online. Generics are potent and safe as other branded meds. Only reputable pharmacy produces them such as Sunrise remedies. Having this in mind one may buy synthroid uk in generic online pharmacy with free shipping worldwide

Best. Blonde. Joke. Ever.

I apologize in advance.

Certain people simply cannot allow themselves to get medical insurance and thus forced to pay for the expensive prescription pills or trying to buy generic pills online. Generics produced in India are very good as other branded counterparts. Only reputable pharmacy produces them such as Fortune healthcare. With this in top one is allowed to buy topamax uk in generic pharmacy online with extremely affrodable shipping to any point in the world
