A group of people who like to hang out in the parking lot of our Tim Horton's. They do not go in and buy anything, they take up valuable parking spots, they stand talking to the driver of the car parked beside you and don't move so you can get into your car or drive away, they park their vehicles over the lines so no one can park beside them and they try to stare you down if you dare look at them.

This isn't a single occurance. My friend and I meet there on a regular basis and this same group is always there. And the Staff/management don't seem to do anything about it. If it was my business, they wouldn't be parking if they weren't buying!

well, you could capitalize, but that slowed transmission by a microsecond in order to transcode on simple bbs systems, and that was a sin.

my very first job was fixing old teletype equipment. it was a more finely tuned electrical machine than it was a computer.

It wasn't really noticeable on those old BBSs. Almost nobody types fast enough for it to make a difference. We had a game running at our house. Sometimes I would type hints.

Ever hear about the guy who kept getting interrupted by a Greek guy? Sysop.

Buon Giorno,

There is a lack of shoemakers in Espaņa ... One must go to the Central Market ...

*** Thanks to Bolas and Buckytom who have given such timely feedback ...

On the whole, Governments and Politics ... The Crisis, The Debt Society and Petty Destructive Crime overall ...

Have Nice Week,
Ciao, Margi.

Spell check is ok, I reckon.
'Course spell check indicates that the following sentence is fine:
"Eye have know idea watt aye should dew two correct this."

It's hard to put his French accent into print, but I think it went something like, "Dose your dug baht?" And yes, the way he said "minkey."
