Well, this might explain why our internet here has been unstable recently. Although we have a different service (Sky), BT owns the lines that connects houses no matter who provides your package.

Wait. I just realized something else about Atlas Shrugged that makes no sense. One of the central motifs of the story is trains - protagonist is the head of a railroad company, one of the other heroes is an engineer.

But the book is about private enterprise and how government involvement just shackles things. But the protagonist is in an industry that's, yes, associated with American industry and stuff, but the big railroads were only possible because of government funding and land grants.

This story makes no sense.

@hallenbeck77: Some of my favorites too. Also loved Fraidy Cat.

Looney Tunes are great. I need to build my collection. :P

Amazon has Vols. 1-6 of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection cheap. 24 discs for about $100.

I never saw you around here zeroyaoi but I love your theme. Neptunia is great.

#257 Posted by zeroyaoi (1826 posts) -

@Cloud_765: I'm trying to be more active in the community. Thanks! Love Neptunia. :3

@hallenbeck77: That's really tempting. A panini press and the looney tunes collection will be my next order.

I spent an hour trying to get images and text to play nice together, but this new editor we have is way too stupid. My post is messed up now but it doesn't matter..

Nope, I'm surprised you can make any posts on mobile. :P The mobile site is useless now.

#276 Posted by zeroyaoi (1826 posts) -

@harry_james_pot: that's because I have patience. ;3

They need a mobile app fast. :P

Sorry I couldn't fill your party thread with sweets. D;

About 2k of my posts are from my phone, but that was before the redesign. :P

And it's ok. :)

I got to that milestone back in 2008 myself.

Also, I just wish things would pick up again. I haven't posted on this site in weeks before today. I've been going for weeks without posting here at all pretty much all year.

I still post everyday, but mostly in System Wars. It's more active than OT now.

#291 Edited by TAMKFan (32701 posts) -

Whenever I post, it's mostly just here in OT these days. Too bad all the unions are really dead.

The unions were one of the best things in this site. Such a shame.. :( I used to avoid SW before the redesign, but now it's the only place with decent activity.

#293 Posted by TAMKFan (32701 posts) -

Yeah. I really hope to see a revival of the unions someday. I still don't see myself posting in SW though.

#294 Posted by CrimsonBrute (23069 posts) -

I'm hoping for a FUSE revival. I miss sitting on top of the most active users list.

Oh hello.

Anyone knows me? No? ... ohhkay :/

#298 Posted by zeroyaoi (1826 posts) -

@TehFuneral: you like licking? Hi! :)

@crimsonbrute: I liked the Fuse section.

#299 Edited by zeroyaoi (1826 posts) -

It felt like a twitter at times. Too bad it got removed.

I never used Fuse. It felt so disconnected from the rest of the site.
