    Oh please don't be doomy. And Blockchain is not the same as Bitcon. Bitcon uses Blockchain technology, but Blockchain has much wider and more valuable potential wherever groups of businesses/organisations want a shared/secure/trusted record of ...

    I find your animations a lot more, err, human, that this piece, Edward. And it's we humans who will apply the technology of Blockchain (or guns, or wheels) in dehumanising/exploitative ways, nothing evil about technology per se.

    I think he doesn't look mean at all, Squidge. Does he know Tommy Cooper?

    Y-e-e-e-s. Speaking as someone who - and this is a true story - one Friday night transformed into a sentient plant(oid?) I just want to say thay my substrate is not in the least detached.

    Barny BTW if anyone sends me a PM I reserve the right to post it as my status or otherwise make it public, if I so choose. And/or if I think said PM, or a post on my wall, is bullying, I will report the content. I understand that if I post on anyone's wall or send a PM the recipient may do the same. Would like that to be clear. Not expecting a lot of PMs ;-o

      Barny Actually that's a really really good idea, BellaM - thanks! Off to check the terms about offensive language.

      BellaM In every other forum of which I am a member, making public the contents of a private message without consent is a Terms of Service violation resulting in an instant ban. I have no intention of sending you any kind of PM but I will be reading the TOS.

      Barny Look at what AlanP sent me, that seems pretty much like a service violation itself.

      Barny And that was from me making an constructive suggestion - in a group that is supposedly "collegiate" and "mutually respectful". Maybe, as long as Alan doesn't want to create an argument.

    Barny As AlanP said to me in a PM: "I'm putting this in a private message for a reason. Take your self justifying shit out of my fucking group, let it go and grow up." Yes. Grow up.

    Love your September comp entry, a great tone for the whole piece!

    hello friend, yourself :-)

    But no, the PM still eludes me? I will try PMing you now.

    Your comp entry exercised the old chuckle muscles, Barny. Loved it.

    Great comp entry, Barny. Seems like the only luck your m/c has is bad luck or none at all. Loved the humour.

    Boo!

    I prefer the mystery of it. Much more interesting than just being a forum sub-group. Meet every month, secret handshakes, left-trouser leg rolled up, plotting sinister acts in the depths of written code.

    You need to market this better!
