I have a slow modem….I mean artist.
It’s not the one about the 2 little pigs and the big bad mammoth?
Could be. But, for a change, one of the pigs wins instead of the mammoth.
Cave child wondering if the grown ups have now finally gone nuts.
There have always been tech delays. Always will be.
Did the cave women all have beards? Or does this cave child have two fathers?
Kids these (those) days always seem to need to have pictures.
The first redhead?!
Publishers waiting on a manuscript.
This is why writers go on strike – always under pressure to produce more, faster.
Once upon a time in a cave with softly flickering torch light, the beasts on the shadowy walls seemed to move… and the adventure began anew.
Story telling – the first art and the first practical lessons for the young.
fond remembrances of my first 2400 baud analog modem
I remember those days. The scream of the modem. The slow crawl of the download bar. The dread of a loss connection after an hour or more of download commitment. Don’t miss them a bit.
He’s working fast. It would be a delay if he broke for coffee
Well back in Ancient Greece & whatnot, humans who could calculate & such WERE called computers,…
Why is it that the more leisure time we gain, the more impatient we become to fill it faster ?

Humanity: The Never Ending Stories (so far).
If this is Florida, the story will have to be OK’d by Ronny Whiteboot’s thought police before it can be read to children.
Reminds me of how long it took for things to download during the early days of AOL.
This just in from the ACLU:
This morning – in a win for free expression on the internet – the Supreme Court unanimously protected our right to free speech on online platforms in two key rulings.
Here’s what to know about both:
→ In Twitter v. Taamneh: The Court ruled that when companies like Twitter, Google, and Facebook simply provide a platform that’s open to anyone for speech purposes, that isn’t enough to “aid and abet” an act of terrorism under the Anti-Terrorism Act.
→ In Gonzalez v. Google: SCOTUS sent the case back to the court of appeals, leaving in place the vital protections for free speech afforded by Section 230. Under Section 230, platforms generally won’t be held liable for user-posted content, removing incentives to limit what we say online.
Her RAM is way too small…
ah… the good ‘ol days. At least he doesn’t make those annoying modem sounds (I presume)
This reminds me so much the times of the 44/56kbps !
an acquaintance brought a low-power wifi/cell signal jammer, and plugged it in and set it on her desk at the beginning of each class. about halfway through the year, she just randomly turned it on once or twice a week. her kids scored really well on SOLs.
Wiley kids – love ‘em. But I’d like to know what “The day I killed a Mammoth” is going to be written on, and is it suitable for children?
Fun fact, cave drawing were moving pictures.
