So I'm taking a course on the history of computers, and since you are all here due to a computer, I thought I'd ask some general questions about computers (if anyone is still around to reply).

What do you think of computers? What role have they had in your life? What do you wish they could do that they can't? What do you wish they wouldn't do that they do?

>i think nowadays they serve a big purpose.

Yeah. It depends a bit on how you define computer, but some sort of processing takes place in the majority of devices that use electricity.

>i think we'd be in a huge mess if computers were all to just fade away

Yes, I think so. Fundamentally, anything a computer can do a human could do by hand, but given practical limits there would be much less computing power available.

They have very big role in my life. Maybe a little too big. But honestly without them, it would take quite chunk of my connection of people I talk online.

Nowadays I live in rural village and while it is beautiful around here, there isn't understandably too much people around. Most of my close friends live in the city nearby, and while I visit there usually at weekends, I like to share some thoughts with people in online too.

Love them, been nerding out on them since I was 4 years old and more interested in learning how to type on the keyboard than playing games on it. Wish they could keep all software up-to-date without any intervention or interruption, wish they wouldn't try to spy on me (thanks for Facebook, Google and the governments) from every angle

Do you guys feel like this site still has a purpose? To prevent the usual case of people who post once in a blue moon suddenly coming out of the woodwork to post in this thread, I'd ask that you not post in this thread if you haven't made a single post in the last 40 days but looking back, that just leaves Pipes, Lunacy, Spike, Mein, Omm (who made two posts), Mikie, Me, and KoG (or maybe it's another anon

In the spirit of the OP, I'll reply without reading any of the comments either (apart from that there are loads!)

I do think it serves the same purpose it always has done: drama bunker, quiet corner, somewhere to retreat to when shit is going down on other chans (or other chans are just down)

Sure, I detect that you want more from it and are disappointed when it becomes quiet. To me though, it's that friend you always know you can go back to - you might not communicate at all for months or sometimes even years, but you're always there, the same old you, ready to pick up a comfortable old friendship at any time as if it was only yesterday.

It's not ambitious, if that's what you're looking for, but it's definitely a purpose <3

Also I didn't read the OP properly but TBH I think only asking people who've posted in the last 40 days is completely ignoring views like mine that you perhaps don't want to hear.

You know what Zeke... what's more important than here, is you. I know we don't really talk much, but I still value you over some site, even though I still have an emotional attachment to it, it's not the same as that to another person.

Reading through the thread, I get the strong impression that its wellbeing and sense of purpose (or apparent lack thereof) is really really getting you down. I don't mean this offensively, but you seem very depressed over it. What I said a couple of posts up stands: to me it's that comfortable little quiet room, the old friend that I return to and know is still a friend. I really value it for that. But if it's just getting you down all the time: maybe it's time to call it a day? Not even drag it out, just make a backup available for viewing. Your wellbeing is more important, and I know of a few who've left the fandom completely because they've personally found it better for their mental health.

It's true! Why do people always laugh at me when I tell them? Stop laughing, dammit! I'm serious. Deadly serious. It was a tabby named Whiskers. I named it that because it had whiskers. Stephen Hawking ran over my cat.
Yes, the guy you're thinking of is the very same guy that I'm talking about. This isn't all that complicated. The genius guy. Yes, that's the one. I'm still shocked myself. Surprised even. My cat, needless to say, was flabbergasted at the time. Stephen Hawking ran over my cat.
My neighbour saw it. Ask him! He's in the house that's beside my house. No, the other one. He knows. Swear to God. Just ask him and he'll tell you what he saw. Stephen Hawking ran over my cat.
Stephen Hawking: Theoretical physicist, author and runner-over of cats.
What? My neighbour denies that he saw anything? Are you sure? Damnit, Stephen Friggin' Hawking must've got to him. It did happen, I tell ya'. Did! I don't care that my neighbour denies everything. Stephen Hawking ran over my cat.
Yes, we're talking about the same guy. Genius. Wrote a book on something. Something smart. Big head. Sits in a chair all the damn time. Yes, a chair with wheels, damnit. What other kind of chair could possibly run over an entire cat? Stephen Hawking ran over my cat.
He didn't have to circle around to do it again. That's just evil. Whiskers never had a chance. Plus there's no way I'll be able to get the tire marks off the chesterfield. Stephen Hawking ran over my cat.
Stephen Hawking: Author, runner-over of cats and leaver of obscene messages on answering machines.
This is what I get for having a phone. I'm afraid to go near it, now that it's been infected by his disgusting message. Stephen Hawking left an obscene message on my answering machine.
He did! Why would I make something like that up? I have proof. C'mon, I'll show you. I haven't erased it yet. Stephen Hawking left an obscene message on my answering machine.
Hi, I'm not home right now, but if you leave your name and the time you called after the beep I'll be sure to get back to you real soon.

Steven Hawkings doesn't sound very nice. I'm sorry about Whiskers and your photograph. :(

But I think it is neat that you still use vintage electronics for phone communication, even if you worry Dr. Hawkings may have left you a distressing message on your answering device...

Yo! Kikuto makes his own dramatic thread, end quote! This thread's leitmotif will be what made you happy lately.

For me, it has been able to see lately many very important friends for me. That and time for my vacation is not so distant future anymore.

What do you guys have? : )

How would I know, you're anonymous. Don't want to use a name, don't be surprised if people don't know you and therefore fall back on generalisations (There are a shedload of people with those issues on the pony chans and I've seen the attitude I mentioned too many times to count over on ponychan)

Have you considered using a name? It's very hard to make friends (or maintain an ongoing friendship) with someone who can't be identified

Hi, Lunachan! How are you?

Are you enjoying summer (or whatever season you happen to be in, depending on your hemisphere and choice of season timing convention)?
