Station Manager Ken: I hope you are reading the comments. I have heard your show (SSD), and I know you are a serious man. I have been listening a lot over the last week and I have noticed something strange. DJs are giving money to each other, and then back again. Are these phantom transactions? How do we know who owes who what favors? Transactions that offset each other can result in “loops” that put us at risk of another financial crisis. Also, most critically: they seem to be giving each other priceless publicity squibs each time this happens. I’m trying to make a log of this but I’m only one person. #followthemoneyfmu.
Also, what about the disproportionate influence on the media of Yo La Tengo?

@bazbo - yup - a nest of shameless attention trolls is our beloved FMU

Seriously!

@Jack: Pity. But didn't Mosaic sell their code to Microsoft when Netscape killed them, and that's where the "wonderful" Internet Explorer came from? I think, anyhow.

@G, yes. "Microsoft licensed Mosaic to create Internet Explorer in 1995"

Do you know the expression "eternal September"? The 90's were a blur to me.

Netscape eventually became Firefox

@Aitch: It's all pretty inbred, huh? haha

I just stopped using Chrome and set up FireFox in an attempt to ween myself away from the Borg.

Keep your account pristine, Irwin. Make no posts!

Instagram's a piece of cake. First, you have to adjust the antenna...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/13/19 5:26pm Snortley:

Nope; Netscape was bought by AOL, who made it even worse than it already was, and it died due to lack of use.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/13/19 5:27pm Aitch:

Make that 178
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/13/19 5:29pm Aitch:

Netscape code > Mozilla > Firefox

I am using Netscape 7.2 and it is/was owned by AOL.

Making an instagram post would be like drilling for oil in the unspoiled wilderness.

the radioactive cockroaches will appropriate instagram long after we've all blown each other to kingdom come

when you can no longer tell whether this is the best or worse thing you've ever heard, you are listening to WFMU.
