So who will be the first to post here?

...after me, I mean  :  )

A hearty welcome to whoever finds this. If we're already having a conversation in the yahoo group, feel free to cut & paste the thread & continue over here. It will be helpful to me if discussions move sooner rather than later, because currently I will have to try to keep up with answering queries on both groups!
Enjoy the site,
AR

Yeah I'm first! smile  This is so cool.  We finally have our very own place, yippy!  Ooh, the excitement.  Don't worry it'll wear off and I'll settle down eventually ;)

Here's a thread topic that may have been discussed already.  What's the deal with Facebook?  At the surface and as a practical tool for interaction and networking is seems a great resource.  What are you expert ideas?

Start here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Criticism_of_Facebook

When you get to the end, don't miss the 'security' part  :  )

Personally, I avoid all such sites mainly because they're full of the same idiots gossiping about nonsense punctuated by adverts as the average soap opera.

I also tend to avoid anything owned by assholes.

But hey, make your own mind up; that's what free choice is all about!
Best,

As a general rule of thumb the more people post on facebook the more they are narcissistic and insecure.

There is no security, anything will be handed over to the government/advertisers and also no pseudonyms. Yet people still join holocaust denial groups/ discuss very personal aspects of their lives/ ask others to sell them drugs.

Among my peers it has almost entirely replaced emails, which is worrying. And there is little on facebook which cannot be done just as well in any other medium.

Worst of all people can now show you their holiday snaps from any computer in the world...

I thought that one good thing about it is that one of the owners (Peter Thiel) gave millions to anti-aging research amoung other things. Although its less impressive giving millions when you are a billionaire...

Still, maybe the other owners are assholes.

Myspace is probably worse, except there are bands on it and you can listen to their music for free.

Thanks, its a bent Sierpinski triangle. It's actually a fairly basic fractal as they go, and fractals look far better at high resolution.

...There's something rather Klingon about it, or possibly Samurai (or possibly both, and that would be an interesting dude to meet)  :  )

Btw if you have any artwork you'd like to put anywhere, eg workshop or galleries, do send it in!

I imagine Klingons could have been inspired by samurai - they both have similar proud warrior mentality and use curved edged weapons. Perhaps my fractal tritrendo reminds you of a 3 bladed bat'leth?
Actually I just googled it and check this out : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:KlingonInsignia.png

Its accidental - I'm not that much of a trekkie. (or maybe subconsciously I think I'm a Klingon)

Also what's the file upload size limit? I tried to upload a higher resolution version of my avatar, but it resulted in an error.

Aha! This is one of those things Sensai Scalino will be able to tell you about. I believe he's off partying or similar, so we will have to await his return.

If a low resolution really troubles you, we could sing Samurai war songs while we wait, to keep our spirits up? But if your fractal is in fact infinitely regressive I believe you can only upload it via Hilbert's Modem? LOL  :  )

Ok I've bin online since 8am this morning and now I've got the munchies so I'm going for a break.

Hi dudes! Aha! Here we are, damn it...!

About avatars, the size limit is 2000KB and in pixel's size 200 width / 500 height maximum.

Now, if you really need more, I can have a look if it can be modified...

Cheers!

Thanks Alex,
     Looks like I should probably avoid using facebook.

Apart from anything else you don't need the spam  :  )

Btw are you able to post in resident's quarters? (The message there for you is outdated anyway)  :  )

I meant, if I want to post an image, how big can the image file be? I tried one which was ~400kB, which caused an error message.

Hilbert's Modem is only useful if you want to upload images that exist in what we mathematicians term 'a silly number of dimensions'. However this doesn't help unless the person viewing it also has a Hilbert monitor...

So what good samurai war songs do you know?
