Subject: RE: BS: Veterans Would Mudcat hook you in today?
Well, in a sense it has. When I retired 12 months ago and didn't have a desktop permanently open to the web any longer, I only logged on from the public library or from relatives' PCs, maybe once a fortnight. I restricted myself to reading significant threads, the health of cyberfriends and items I was interested in, like the arrangements for the Stoney Stratford gig & hardly posted at all. Since August when I changed my PC and got hooked up to the I no longer feel the need to read every thread. I can tell from experience the ones that will annoy me so I don't open them.
I've continued to enjoy the humour in the Tavern threads and have benefitted through PMs of the wisdom and kindness of fellow 'catters.
As we have grown in membership the number of threads daily has increased so I probably miss some things by scrolling quickly down for a few to open but there is still enough useful information, humour and good will to outweight the dross, which I don't feel the need to read (I miss Peter T's flights of literary fancy, though!
(but then, what do I know?)
