Hello I am working on becoming a shrink.
While working on an internet tv show and I may show clips of behind the scenes.
and other things I also have a Bittube channel, Now that Bittube has become Bittuber, It is now just a twitter clone, or a si like to call micro blogs, Useless Post it notes messaging services.So occasional rants, are on IFPS but i have to find them one at a time, so 200 videos to push a video sharing platform, that is no longer that, I thought they were adding social media elements to the video sharing channel, nope they ditched the whole damn concept.
Hobbies Old movies, Steam punk,But i am reall into the variants such as raygun,chrome,diesel punk. Muic runs all the decades righ tup till 2012 then originality died for somereason.
Atticus Remembers, Atticus Recommends and Atticus Rants. Since I do reviews and love almost anything retro even the 1920.
I also despise Political correctness Though i am a big advocate of bringing Etiquette back . I believe in good manners.Hello everyone, I am Atticus. I miss the old internet the one my generation created. Somehow over the last ten years, we lost our way. we gave up chatrooms and homepages to go to so-called social media sites. And in my opinion, there is nothing social about them. Where everyone's else's fart is more important than everyone else fart. Where the edgiest thing you are allowed to do is take a picture of spicy food and have people make comments on food like they never saw a burger before. Miss the ASCII art and the clubs and groups that used them. I miss chatrooms and all of the like. The good news is I am not the only one I see all these creators bringing back sites they missed or at least emulating them. COmbining them with the things we loved and now miss. with some of the new technologies. I love that. I do not know what happened to us. around 5 years ago we gave up doing our own thing and ran to these networks who won't let you do the things we been doing since the BBS days. We got software engineers running facebook who don't even know where phrases like LOL, AFK.BRB and IRL came from. and you are trusting your data to them. I don't get it.
Things I noticed. Is how everyone doesn't notice anything. Remember a Utopia is another word for Dysoptopia

Well, Did finally Break away from the Smart phones a little and got myself a good old fashioned flip phone. Runs on KaiOS operating system, i still have access to the internet. Turns out some people still use the phone as a phone. I still have access to some games. What i noticed i am not the only one going back to old school. We tend to lose certian things technologies over time. What is Old is New Again. This may be one of the instances. AS research Indicates tha People are fleeing social media sites in droves. Turns out being annoyed by people you never met is not that popular. I am enjoying my phone too. No butt dialing, I can use it with wet hanss has nice water proof keys,. And the screen doesnt crack everytime I look at it. I am seeing alot of people go back to the classic Flip phone, THanks to KaiOS and Alcotal.

Well you know i am nostelgic for old tech like so many people at this site. Here is something i never could sign up for when i had a chance.. It only took credit cards and America Online took bank cards. Turns out people are trying to restore Prodigy Online. There was something more social about chatrooms. I reall do not understand why we left them in the dust to go to third party profile pages as a social media. Vintage Computing Bringing back Prodigy..

WHere is a Rant, I spent over a year uploading videos to an alternative to twitter, that was awesome called bit tube, they changed to a social media site that as far as i can tell is just a TWITTER clone, If i wanted TWITTER i would be on TWITTER, TWITTER BORED me when it was NEW. What ever happened to coders, trying something new and different, Hey everyone lets create a site that looks does and acts the same way all the other sites ACT, and lets claim we are different.
Things I noticed
You will not find me on Twitter, You Will not find me on FB, you will not find me on Google much longer, Those companies have destroyed the internet as a fuctional utility, they have destroyed friendships, and according to research, they are all losing subscribers. The only thing keeping them afloat atr this point is injections of money from advertisers and NGO. And You will not find me on Android or Google soon as i transfer all my things over to alternatives. The rant is we used to use 3 or more search engines to surf the web, If anyone tells me to google it I will slap them, Its called surfing DAMN IT. Or Searching. If anyone tells me to like them on FB, I say WHY? Do i know you? Did we talk or chat?
Things I noticed
I do a lot of research online, using multiple search engines, and i have found myself at shock when i had godaddy not block one website but block my search results.As someone who is becoming a psychologists and medical peer reviewed research is being completley blocked. There was another incident where Sever doctors where using google docs and where banned from using medically accurate words. And just recelenty Amazon blocked a site from me that was a blog, claiming it was something it was not. So hence here is another story from some one who is not me.
Some ones godaddy rant
At this point inhistory there is no freaking point to having a twitter less then 30 Percent use it for anything several companies are going back to self hosting customer relations on homepages, and face it building a business on a platform that is a circle jerk for jerks, and the ever changing unequal enforcement on the ever vague and often changing rules. Is a waste of time. Less then 10 percent use it everyday.
