Noded with C64... Less Cool OCR Problems: SMS become... umm, various
variations here, but "5115" became the 31337est of them, and "spam"
was constantly read as "spain" - sorry for all people of Spanish
origin, blame the TextBridge makers. =)
Well, hmm... I don't remember much, but at least I remember something.
First dream segment
I remember a Moltres, somewhere... some people were teasing it, so
it belched fire. I think it seemed to turn into Magmar at one point.
Second dream segment
I was in home. As described in recent daylogs, my cellphone has
cellphone has been kind of nonfunctional... now, some advertiser
had sent me some SMS spam.
I was annoyed that I got SMS spam loud and clear (and this was the
first time I had got SMS spam, now when I, in general, had
severe trouble receiving real SMS messages...
The spam was from a "new media company" I had heard of, but I
can't remember the name. It sounded familiar, even when I'm pretty
certain the company doesn't exist in RL.
I was even more annoyed when I noticed that in the Communicator
display, the "Delete" button somehow was available when I had
highlighted the real SMS messages but didn't appear when I
highlighted the spam message (so I had to open the menu and delete
it that way).
Instead, in the advertiser's message.. the delete button was
replaced by "Chat". I pushed that button.. and I got the 9110
terminal emulator, with Emacs-like screen. The buffer was labeled
"Chat". So, I started waiting that someone would send me another
message.. maybe this would make SMS conversations easier...
Strange that the terminal emulator was white-on-black, by the
way... and didn't flicker like I would have expected it to
flicker, in fact, it seemed like the thing would have had a CRT
display instead of LCD.
Some people were watching TV in my home; the TV program was some
Baywatchesque yet-another-beach-drama in which some pretty guy
talked to two women, then took off his T-shirt,
and other of these women said extremely boredly "well, I guess he
isn't gay, like I expected..."
