The Daily Ping

The original Ping was painfully written in Perl.

Facebook Addict?

Tell the truth: how many times have you checked Facebook today?

No, really? I mean, even just to peek?

I think 5 or so. (Yesterday… not today.)

It’s funny, because I really didn’t think much of Facebook initially. But the value in it is that I now have a ton of friends and relatives on it, and since they update frequently, there’s a lot of use in it for me. I mostly ignore and/or hide all of the game apps and email forward-like stuff, and that all works out.

About 4 times – All for about 10 seconds at a time.

None. I was in Jamestowne all day.

If I open FB in a Firefox tab and leave it there all day that only counts as checking one time, right?

I can’t check it from work 🙁

I do check it every night, though. I think the guy who invented it should probably get a Nobel Peace Prize. It really has brought a lot of people together whom you’d otherwise have never heard from again and I really appreciate that.

I’ve gotten back in contact with a lot of old friends and it’s really just been great. I love it. Wish I invented it.

I can also keep up with my large family and I’m forging more of a relationship with my neices and nephews than I would have been able to otherwise since they live all over the country.

It really has added to my life and made it a lot nicer.

Now, if only I could post to two different Pings closely in time without getting that Goll-danged

“Spam Prevention: You cannot post a comment so soon after submitting another one.
Your comment could not be added, because comments for this entry have either been disabled, you entered invalid data, or your comment was caught by anti-spam measurements”

that would really make my life better.

Can’t you give me a pass, somehow? Isn’t there a way to mark my computer as friendly?

Yes, I’m whining . . .

The issues will all go away soon, Joseph, once Paul and I can coordinate our schedules enough to work some magic. Like the cute kitten on the motivational poster said: hang in there!

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
