I've more or less left everything2 behind. I'll leave my nodes up because some of them are interesting, but eventually they'll all get deleted or eaten anyway...A codger is a long-time 'net user who finds himself feeling many magnitudes his real age when comparing his attitudes and actions with newbies and other 'newer' users of his erstwhile generation.
WON'T SOMEBODY PLEASE NODE CLEVER-CLEVER.

Cool Man Eddie says discofever just cooled your writeup on What's new, pussycat?, baby
discofever says I saw the node What's new, pussycat? two days ago. Ever since, the song has been on constant replay in my head. Thanks. Thanks alot.

I'm probably the nicest a--hole you'll ever meet. And I'm an eNFj. Find stuff at http://mikelietz.org
Humour is not for the impatient... and the stuff I write is probably not for anybody.
And now, some random, potentially madcap stuff:
Mad"cap` (?), a.

I call myself Codger and have for a couple years. My previous picks for logins were 'Mot the Barber' and 'Speaker for the Dead': one from Star Trek and the other from the Orson Scott Card book of the same title. I joined the online community many many years ago, back in the days of BBSes, over gopher connections on various freenets. I used irc and chat lines. I pirated megabytes at a time of games and software. I played BBS door games, etc. Gradually, I noticed that many of my fellow users seemed younger, more immature than me -- this probably was just a silly superiority complex, but regardless I began feeling a couple times my actual age.
I give you these nodeshells: Please do not cool this node. It doesn't deserve it. If I could reach you, I would cool you. Use them wisely.
