Letters Play
Starbuck [17:39] Comments: 3 []
When you've got too much administration pending at work and at home, what could be more constructive than shifting a bunch of letters across your screen.

And when the weather's getting hot at home it's nice to pay regular beer visits to the fridge.

So why not combine the two right here in your internet browser, with a virtual fridge magnet simulator! Its verily an MMOFMS!

It's much less peaceful than it sounds, 'cos there'll be up to 49 other worldwide-geeks moving the letters around the fridge door at the same time, and much of the time it turns out like some hardcore deathmatch.

Still, it's strangely heartening when people try to "help" you in what you're attempting to write, and you somehow connect when a bunch of you somehow decide to create something artistic.

But most of the time you'll find yourself slapping down unusual swear words. Get thee to the Profanisaurus! Ahh, I cherish having the sophisticated mind of a thirtysomething....

(There's also a Scratchpad where you'll find people drawing mishapen phalli!)

That's one of the most pointlessly compulsive things I've ever seen.....

I know.

But you never know what you'll get ([c] Gump).

Someone/some people was/were creating temples out of letters early.

Whilst I tend to just write finish off other people's sentences with the word "poo". They must hate me.

And the interactive scratchpad turns quite disturbing around Closing Time... its like a bunch of people puking over each other. With hammers.
