About this page:
Before there were guestbooks or blogs or webforums, in the dim and dusty days of yore before the creation of the World Wide Web, there were bulletin boards and newsgroups. When I first got online back in 1987 I was active on several of these. Most are long gone.
One place I hung out online from 1995 to 2017, my virtual home on the nets, was the newsgroups at news.sff.net. I won't bore you with all the history, but my personal newsgroup, sff.people.lwe, was my refuge and delight. This page linked to it, providing web-based access for people who didn't have newsreaders.
Alas, in January of 2017 SFF Net announced that the newsgroups would be shut down in March. That meant the end of this Discussions page as originally created.
I'm hoping to find a new use for it, or some way to restore it, but for now, I don't have one. The best I can do is to point you at my blogs, "The Mind Control Lasers Lied to Me" and "The Serial Box," or my Dreamwidth journal, or my Facebook Page.
That's it; here's your list of handy exits:
