    I think there was a lot happening yesterday. Besides volleyball games, and UH baseball game, there was UH graduation yesterday, and many parties afterwards.

    Yeah, I guess we ALL live on bigger or lesser rocks, all on the REALLY big rock - Earth.

    Reminds me of an old ditty from high-school science:

    "Big bugs have little bugs
    upon their backs to bite 'em,
    and little bugs have lesser bugs,
    and so ad infinitum."

    ad infinitum = Latin for 'into infinity,' forever, etc.

    Sure ! I live in England. It's only a hop, skip and a jump from Ireland, France, Holland, Spain,,,,,,, as members have found out to their enjoyement. The climate doesn't compete with yours but within a matter of hours we can be in Cyprus, Portugal or Greece.

    The whole of Europe is spread out in frornt, ,,, which is why people want to "Escape from that Rock."

    So I leave HT and arrive on the shores of Facebook where I find a few HT'ers have migrated to and have shedded their anonymity.

    My neighbor Lisa tells me of this thread on HT and says I should chime in for old times sake.

    I am apprehensive at first but decide to check in after almost 5-months. I realize things never change in a world where change is the new buzzword in Washington DC.

    Things have to change sooner than later. Unless we come out of the rocks from which we hide behind to throw barbs at one another from, change will never happen and those who continue to make HT a place of hatred will eventually destroy this magnificant forum. It's easy to chastise one another here when you are unknown. But put a face, a name, and your credibility in front like badges of honor and suddenly we are all human once again with dignity as an emphasis on how we talk to each other.

    HT can be a wonderful place to talk story...if we only knew who the heck we were talking to.

    Okay that's all. If you want to talk to me, find me on Facebook.

    Aloha,

    Nice of you to stop by, CW. Be well - I'll miss ya. (I just ain't the type to get caught up in Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, or whatever the "trend-of-the-year" happens to be. Too busy irl.)

    The advantage of Facebook over HT is that Facebook has privacy settings that allows a subscriber to control who sees and contacts him/her. It's much easier and safer in that situation to reveal one's true identity. I'm all for HT continuing to allow anonymity because it's wide open to the world. My identity is pretty easy to learn from within HT, but after years on the very public usenet, I don't really care to openly broadcast my name to that world. Just my 2...

    But, I get to be a Wizard of Oz behind the curtain. I do need a brain, heart, and courage to be on Facebook.

    I just took the plunge. After the pleasing asthetics of Myspace, Facebook is an ugly place to be. It reminds me of an old AOL chatroom. No backgrounds, no color. Just boxes and lines and people liking things and being fans of stuff and other people sending you "gifts". Ugh. But when all your friends migrate somewhere, you either have to follow or be very, very lonely.

    Can't think of anything creative this time

    I never got into MySpace or chatrooms but I agree with you about the gifts, likes, fans, etc. on Facebook! Oh...and the pokes and superpokes...and most of those quizes!!! I just don't get it! But, I don't have to. There's something there for everyone and not everyone will like everything!

    OTOH...I'm now in touch with long, lost relatives, childhood friends, classmates, their kids and grandkids. I've seen photos I'd never have had the chance to see otherwise. My one year old 3rd cousin looks just like his grandpa, my cousin, at the same age. I think he's my 3rd cousin...or my first cousin twice removed?!!!! I can't get enough of these updates...a thrill for me.

    From a tutu's point of view, I'm happy I don't have the option to make my page flashy. That'd be just one more thing to attempt to learn. But I do understand why the younger generations like to do that.

    Now that I think about it, it is easier to look at somebody's page without having to read through a background. I guess after having had a MySpace page for the last two years, it's strange to switch to a completely different setup. I think once I get used to it, I'll be better. But you're right- ignore the extraneous stuff and just look at the good. I'm still learning.

    I share that sentiment. I consider myself quite private; I just realized that I never even posted an intro! I'd likely share more if there were a members only sub-forum.

    I used to love Myspace over FB because I liked having a pretty page but now I heavily prefer FB. My family remains at Myspace so I still gotta go check in there because I love the photo updates. It's just that I have so much more fun, when I have the time, on FB. I have grown to looove the simplicity of it.
    I'm disgusted and repulsed, and I can't look away.

    I like to play on the farm in FB but I just can't

    I enjoy both HT and Facebook for completely opposite reasons. On HT, newbies from around the world subscribe. We get to meet people we wouldn't otherwise have the opportunity to meet, and several of those irl. On FB, we control who we meet. My personal rule is to not accept a friend request from anyone I don't recognize. If any HTers have sent a friend request without a personal note as to who you are on HT, I apologize for not responding but your real name doesn't ring a bell!

    Vanguard, FB is kinda like a members only sub-forum. There are several, active HTers there.

    I have been busy with work and keeping up my blog are big reasons why I haven't been posting here much. On top of that, a lot of the good posters have stopped posting here over the years. Thus my interest has waned

    I've also taken the plunge and signed up for Facebook.

    I feel exactly the same way. I only accept requests from people I know...and even then, only people that I like! My 10 year HS reunion is this year, so everyone is waxing nostalgic about their glory days and I've been getting requests from the most random people. I'm like, "Uh...we weren't friends! You hated me b/c BR asked me to Homecoming Freshman year, then you spread a bunch of unsavory rumors. And now you want to see my pictures? Not so much!!"

    But here, it's nice to be anonymous and meet all kinds of people and talk story. You guys guided me through my move to and time in Hawaii...that never would have happened on FB.

    I must have joined late. Who are some of those posters? The only good posters I can think of who have stopped posting are Craig Watanabe and Random.

    Aye, I've seen the group. The memberlist is public; too exposed for my taste. I may reconsider if I reactivate FB or when I'm less neurotic!
