    I've been a great ambassador for Rovio, half my computer class is now addicted. For housebound people it's a huge improvement on mindless TV, to have mindless bird-flinging capability. Has to be PC though, big screen and no tedious android/ipad endless advertising. 🙂

    There'll be lots of that at some time in the future (could be sooner than later) so move forward while you can.

    You tried hooked but didn't get hooked, guess it takes all kind and unkind fish to get tanked.

    Never is such a long time and so final...
    ...but here are a few things I really like:

    Ice cube trays that release the whole cube
    Bamboo fabric--especially sheets
    Cold brewed coffee
    Glass anything instead of plastic

    Tailor made, well-fitting, interestingly-patterned batik shirts. Wear them to a bar. Wear them to meet the mayor. Wear them to a wedding. Wear them to the supermarket. Wear them when you give a lecture. Wear them around the house. Wear them to the police station to answer questions about driving while drunk. One is never under-dressed nor overdressed in a batik shirt. It is always just right.

    Drewnogal, you've been asked numerous times [by gb] to try to be nice to other people. Not a ding dang thing has worked.
    So, after midnight tomorrow evening he's not coming back to this particular internet forum until April Fools Day, 2013.
