Where Does a Geek Find a Social Life?

CZakalwe Re:step one (1354 comments)

I wholeheartedly agree, I'm a fairly geeky type and I can't stand the word meatspace. I find it a horrible, crude phrase for everyday non-online/computer life. It implies a certain contempt IMO, which isn't a good or healthy attitude. I think that's why it freaks out the "normal people"

Original Cast On Board For Ghostbusters 3

CZakalwe Re:Can we (444 comments)

Wrong! They re-connected in the second film after being seperated. It was quite clear that if things carried on as they were, going out to dinner together etc, plus the fact he was good with her kid, was very likely to lead to them resuming thier relationship. Nothing actually happened between them in the first one either but it was strongly hinted it would, a formula repeated in the second. I think the whole statue of liberty thing was a bit much but other than that the second one was ok. the first is one of my all time favourite movies

Celebrating The Origins of Packet Switching

CZakalwe Re:All times (59 comments)

I mean, take a saying like "the more things change, the more things stay the same." What are we supposed to make of that?

Well I always thought it meant that although many things will seem to change a great deal on the surface, when you look at a deeper, more fundamental level, the same old principles are still at work. Take the machinations of Politics as an example!

Celebrating The Origins of Packet Switching

CZakalwe Re:All times (59 comments)

does that imply that change has not been constant in other times?

No because he said it's the only constant of this century, that implies nothing about any other time, only that in the 21st Century, any other constants that might have existed in the past, no longer apply.

Ten Features To Love About Android 1.5

CZakalwe Re:Are there more than 20 apps for it? (384 comments)

Wow really? I've been on a really old Nokia for ages, I'm talking one of the old dot matrix LCD ones here! I R very poor baboon! I never realised there were phones like that around. While I agree that being forced to use anything sucks balls, being forced to use Webkit is hardly torture, it is pretty good at it's job!

Ten Features To Love About Android 1.5

CZakalwe Re:devices? Since when (384 comments)

:D I know exactly what you mean! I have a rusty spoon handy here if you want to borrow it! Yea I wouldn't mind reading a blog myself, I've played with the emulator of Version 1 like many and it looks promising, but I live in New Zealand and I'm not likely to see any Android phones for a long time if ever!
