    When I was a little public radio ran the original "War of the Worlds " on Halloween so I started looking for other programs years later when I got a computer. WPR used to play reruns of a program called MINDWEBS too.

    Cool I'll have to give that a listen.

    I'm also a big "War of the Worlds"fan and listen to it every Halloween also.

    Here a link that may interest you.

    Check my email, read the local, national, world news, check the latest on the sports teams I follow. When I finish those things with no chores to do around the house, I read the latest posted issues in Ubuntu Forums, sometimes responding when I feel I can contribute.
    Last winter when things were slow, I enrolled in a series of courses developed and taught by Google on Coursera.org. Received my Google IT Professional Support Certificate after completing all six courses. I enrolled mainly to prove to myself I still had it mentally at age 80. Maybe, I will take something else this winter.

    I must say that from the past few days I am losing interest in web browsing. Browsing this forum doesn't seem to be interesting any more. Watching TV in comparison is more interesting.

    I hover my mouse over the Ubuntuforums heading waiting for the Halloween cursor.

    Code:
    date "+%d %B of %Y at %H:%M and %S seconds"
    Pretty easy to parse time, where is the problem?

    Re: How do you pass time on the Internet ?

    I used to spend my free time trolling various Linux forums. I wanted to help, share what I've learned over the past 4-5 years. However recently I've had some bad experiences on a few other forums. From the usual elitist BS to flat out insults and trash talking because of a difference of opinion. As such I've stopped going to all forums except this one. I still try to help but only check occasionally now, once every week or so. No offense to anyone here, but most people on the internet aren't worth the grief either they give, or others give while trying to help someone else.

    Religiously speaking we are to turn the other cheek. I've run out of cheeks.

    The nice part is I'm discovering life outside of my computer again, and loving it.

    *EDIT* I would be remiss by not mentioning that grief is contagious. I've given it plenty of times as well. Feel a bit guilty about it, can't change it. Is another reason I've given up a fair amount of my former time bouncing around the internet. I don't like what I become sometimes.
