Hip to the latest jive
Ah, but I could surf the web while I'm fishing. Er, no. That's one of the reasons I go fishing. To get away from the time sucking computer and waste my time trying to catch fish instead. Time wasted fishing doesn't make me feel guilty. Unlike typing this cobblers when I could be putting some orders together to take to the Post Office. OK. I'm having a brew right now. But often I sit here idly reading stuff that's not important when I could be either working or having real fun doing something real rather than virtual.
The barcode had been sat on my desktop for ages doing nothing. For some reason, yesterday, I thought I'd upload it as my avatar on The Pikers Pit forum. I wasn't sure why, or if anyone would notice, or if it would actually work. For all I knew the generator had made a link to a porn site!
It only took a short time before I had two private messages about my latest avatar! One thanking me and nicking the idea, the other asking how I made it.
I hope I haven't started a trend. If I have then forums will be filled with avatars that all look pretty much the same to human eyes and we might as well not have them!
