Next week, I can start a new Word Link thread. (For our slower computer users). I don't have a computer of my own right now. As well.

I do not have a problem with using my smartphone reading or posting. Just how slow is slow? Just curious about that.

at https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/edit_forum_preferences_form.php you can set how many messages to load. No reason to have a large number if you surf on a smart device. Set it to say 20 and never deal with a thread that is too long. You do know to set it to load newest first?

And you have to be on an gen 4 or earlier PC with limited RAM on an almost dead (in this era) dial up connection to start feeling limited.

Cheers.

Famous engraving by Hans Holbein, the younger, 16 century
Landskenechte engaged in a push of pike.



When I think of pike men I always think of Landsknechte. Or as I call them Landsharks.

Didn’t read Asimov. I read Heinlein instead.
