When I hoped for the revival of RSA this isn't exactly what I meant...

Ever since Verizon canceled their Usenet newsfeed, and others starting to charge for the service, (with some exceptions) the amount of users have dropped, while social media sites offered much more, the posting of videos directly instead of a link. Ditto with the rise and dominance of mobille devices.

Much like I know a guy who keeps his 1978 Dodge Ram Diesel in tip top condition, (uses is a bio diesel) however cars are much, much more different these days with connection to mobile devices, music libraries, traction control, ABS, CVTs etc.

newsreaders.

How many adults (like us -- anybody from RSA under 40?) use phones for
visual stuff as opposed to their nice 27" monitors? I'm ashamed of all
of us (including me) who switched to facebook. My only excuse is that
everybody else did :-(

But I'm still here and I check on my old groups every day.

I finally dumped (The State of California gave me $1K to do it, far more
than any wrecking yard; I was sorry to see it crushed with new tires
and brakes, but money talks -- at least the brake job paid for itself)
my mom's '88 Caddy (which tried to kill me once too often) in favor of a
2013 Corolla S a year ago. I knew modern cars were a lot better, but I
didn't realize just how much better.

....and AC and shocks and one window and side mirrors and fender and
grill dents and one of the smog scores that squeaked by by only ONE
point -- probably courtesy of the nice mech who said it probably
wouldn't pass at all next time. I'd just replaced the tires, calipers,
pads and rotors :-(

POS. I wish my mom had asked my advice before she bought it.
