I think I may have created my My Opera account in May or June of 2001, in which case it'd now be 18 years old.

Let's see, I had a Symbian flip phone that I first put Opera Mini on. And I still have the first touchscreen phone, also Symbian, that I remember posting significantly on the forums with. Prolly puts me around 2006 or '07. Every phone since has been Android.

I had Opera Mobile on SE P800, a Symbian phone on 2003 or 2004, and Mini on some Java-enabled phone a bit later. Opera Mobile for SE P800 was a very good version that I happily used until the phone's battery became unsustainable almost a decade later.

Funny that this thread should be the last to entropy here.

Hmm, I forgot when I signed up, must have been early 2003 or earlier. The first Opera version I used regularly was 4.0.

Okay, I guess I should chime in: Opera 6.03 for Mac....which I paid for! But, at the time, Microsoft's Internet Explorer was what was available. And, oh yeah, I liked it -- Opera, that is.
(As you can see, I'm trying Opera's browser again...:))

OMG when you resurrect like that you are  killing the entropy :insane:


I have no use for new Chropera. I used the old Opera more for email and IRC than for browsing the web, and the new one doesn't do email, except for webmail, which is a bit different thing. The new Chropera also lacks some of the convenience features of Vivaldi, so really no use for Chropera.

For a while I had mutt set up, but Opera 11 is still my main mailer and browser for this forum. For sentimental reasons, I guess.

I was just looking at the Opera forum, and it says "Joined Dec 15, 2002, 1:00 AM". So I might be confusing lurking with joining or some such.

Also of potential interest is that I hadn't posted on the Opera forums since 2014.

I don't think so. I may or may not have read some of it. :)

Anyhow, it's not like 2001 and 2002 are that far apart.

Maybe before this place becomes completely abandoned, we should have a members gettogether irl somewhere convenient, such as Brussels? Flights are cheap right now.

Nah, I guess this place is already dead. The last chance was last year...


Can I propose Last Year at Wuhan?

Walter Williams RIP
When he was younger. he used to fill in for Rush Limbaugh regularly. I miss his tag-line, "Walter Williams, black by popular demand!"
He will be greatly missed.

What can I say, beyond stating the fact that my previous exchange was irrefutably shown to be pointless...? :)

There are conversations to which I'd like to return! But -despite the COVID lockdowns here- it's a quite busy time. (When last I returned it seemed that Howie was trying to keep the place going all by himself! Now: His snit might suit him well enough. Ah, well.) I do still check every now and then on the activity here, meaning Central.
Hope to resume being a pest after the New Year holiday...

Yes, because Christmas. It's Christmas lockdown style this time. Keep it merry!

Another eventful bad day. Haiti president assassinated and an Estonian ambassador expelled from Russia.

Since this is the Americas thread, South America does stand out.

For the second time the entropic interval increase happened here in the entropy thread, last time was message 31.

We can imagine a far-flung future, in the throng of the universal heat-death, where this thread alone is updated irregularly by perfectly well-formed and valid messages from semi-sentient Perl scripts hawking Viagra to a species that no longer exists, because if they ceased,  they wouldn't exist either. This site, long ago self-hosted off-world, would be one of the last remnants of this lost one, that apart from the flashes of Perl-by-perpetual-night remains completely tranquil. Anyway, new update.

Soon I will be on vacation too. Probably not going to go anywhere, because the covid hassle is making it not worth it.

I need to read a book that a childhood friend published. It's about her childhood. So, if I find that I am not in the book, I think I will tell her to rewrite it properly.
