I really wish that there was some way of writing down conversations (acurately) that occured previously. When you talk about something over ICQ (like the conversation with warren), then you can acurately reproduce it later. The conversation I've just had with Paul Tweedy can't be reproduced to any degree of acuracy. Damn.
I'll explain the basics though, in a quick summing-up. I got a cirular email from mp3.com formatted in HTML. Paul thinks that all email should be plain text - no formatting, no nothing. I think it should be allowed to be as multimedia as any other channel. If all mediums remained plain we'd have black and white TV, only pure speech on the radio, no pictures in books, no layout on the web etc. I don't see why email should have to be so constrained to one facet. He disagrees. I think his point of viewe comes from the stupid unix eliteisim thing. Beacuse unix only has a command prompt and no gui, he automatically thinks it's better. In many cases this is not true. He argues that he should be able to read all email on his palm or i-phone. In response, I suggested that he should be able to view all web pages on his phone as well, but he disagreed - apparently email is (read: should be) different to every other channel. I think he is being ignorant. What do you think? Tell me.
Quote of the day comes from warren's site, something which i missed first time around:
I want te be an angle, thought it might be groovy, sort of a mixture between them out of city of angles and the angles from DOGMA, I like the wings.
I wonder if he wants to be an acute angle or an obtuse angle?
Stealing an idea from patti i'd like you to all send me a short email saying how you would describe me. I'll then post the replies on the about me page. Can't wait to get the one from Chris N which says i'm satan :)
I went to crappy crappy crappy pc world and bought a game among other things. Unfortunately it doesn't want to run on my machine at work, though likes my home machine and my girlfriend's mahcine. It's okay, but not nearly as cool as settlers 4 which might be out before I die.
That's all for today. Bye
