It can only lead to people getting in trouble and danger.

Because I'm being lazy at the moment, here's a Wikipedia explanation I've barely read. :mrgreen:

For phones! Of course! ...That explains why I hadn't heard about it. :|

Strangely, I'd consider that very much in character for one of my RP mains. :lol:

But in all seriousness, I don't own anything akin to a smartphone (well... I do, actually, but I lost track of it several years ago and I have no desire to try and find it... not like I ever used it, anyway). Stuff for it thus never attracts my attention.

*lol* @ comic...

Bought my only ever mobile in 2005, a model made to be good for playing music so i could use it for MP3s, but aside from that, it´s totally basic, because there´s really no good reason to have a lot of the "bling" that is standard today.
Just a good way to stress up, and i´m certainly never going to be like my cousin was for a while, keeping up SMS exchanges even through the middle of the night, with the phone next to her when she slept so that she would wake if she got any messages... Fortunately, she quickly got older and wiser.

I hadn't planned on getting a smartphone -- but I ended up getting (an inexpensive) one. It comes with Kindle already installed. With that, plus Fanfiction Downloader, I have loads of fanfic available wherever I go. And I hear it makes phone calls too.

The thought of not having a smart phone makes me sad. Smart phones are so much fun, also I do a lot of commission based dev work so I kinda need one for work. Went to school for IT and everything, yet oddly I very much hate computers, if everything went back to books and somehow fan fiction could be distributed easy I wouldn't care if computers disappeared.

I was a fan back in the days of paper fanzines. There was very little fan fiction around in those days, and what you got depended mostly on luck. I wrote maybe half a dozen fanfics back in the Sixties. Today, I have a larger presence -- which is minuscule compared to the great sea that is FFnet and the rest of the Web.

Trust me. You don't want to go back to the days before computers and the Web. Computers make it easier to write and edit, and where even the great fanzines of old had limited print runs of maybe a hundred -- a thousand, for a very few, now everybody can get all of the stories.

Im more thinking if there was like a magical way of sharing fanfics. I would love to be able to say "Ranma Fanficion I havnt read" and Have a list appear in front of me. thinking about an internet without trolls.

Actually, I think I was happier before I first discovered CompuServe and AOL in 1995. :? Sure, Web accessibility is great, but it brings its own problems that I'd rather not deal with.

As long as I've been alive, though (since 1984), I think we've always had a computer in the house. :) Aside from the occasional power outage or grounding, I've never experienced life without them.

Of course, the way it was phrased, that "magical way" would include thousands upon thousands of Ranma fanfics that are of abysmal quality, but that you haven't read. So, one could say that method would be a troll unto itself. >^_^<

I was using Fidonet, which traveled from computer to computer by telephone wire. Compuserve and AOL were okay, but a lot slower -- they were trying to be fancy, which used more bandwidth.

FidoNet, huh? Sounds neat, from what I hear. Reason I used the others was just because that's what my dad was using at the time, so I figure that would've been true for that as well.
