This place needs more sex, Abe, crazy shit, excitement, action, conflict, something... I'm doing all I can, but I'm frankly not getting any help from you guys.

Somebody needs to have an affair with another member. Rob, that is your mission. Your mission is one of seduction, should you be willing to accept it.

It sounds like you're also volunteering yourself for the mission you volunteer Rob to, besson.

Is anyone else annoyed by the constant dropping of the s bomb? I'm fine with it not being censored but some restraint should be shown.

This place isn't dead at all, just drop into the iPad/iPhone forum and mention that there are things you don't like about the iPad you bought, they'll rush out of the woodwork to stab you with their pitchforks.

Quite simply, there are people around here that can't handle anything negative said about whatever new thing the Steve decides to poop out.

It just occurred to me that there is no point in posting stuff on the www, because an a4 size post addressed to a stranger simply adds to nothing.

only people with tiny lives care about what is posted on the internet and consider a forum as their turf. I think they are all depressed one way or another. I don't mean to offend anyone in particular, but after about 10 years on macnn I'm sure no one made a single friendship, we didn't make a fortune because of it, and we didn't get to score too ! All our efforts on macnn just added to more text on the internet ! So whats the point of being here

well maybe 'depressed' isn't the right word, but I do think a lot of people here take their presence on an anonymous place like this forum way too serious.

Not entirely true. You're making out that your opinion is the only one that counts and that everybody else is an Apple drone. That's what people are taking exception to, not your opinion. Dial down the arrogance and you migt have a case.

Disclaimer: I only posted this to stir things up a bit in this thread. Otherwise I would have just shrugged and moved on.

Wrong. Remember Maxelson, daimono, Devil's Rancher? There a whole bunch of us who met up at Max's place. Andi and scaught were also part of the gang, and a bunch of others. We did that for a couple of years. Max and wife came to visit us in Canada, scaught staid with us in Toronto. Oisin did a trip across the US and Canada, staying with people he had met here.

On the west coast Demonhood organizes meet-ups.

Just because you're not getting invited doesn't mean these things don't happen.

All those idiots who bought iPhones and iPads are using all the crap applications available instead of passing their time asking how to make kext potato work on an iBook.

Such a shame that so many lead such sheltered lives. Here in the Frogland we get boobies in shower gel commercials.

I propose we make this a sticky, so there will be only one thread on this subject, instead of a new one every two weeks.

Perhaps we need a topic for discussion. How about we just say what we did over the weekend?
