So essentially you mean even before keyboards, there were text entry technologies going to shit as they met the mainstream, and the connoisseur needed to get his paws on the antique stuff?

Whew! Feeling like time is a circle here.

Starting to think the sale was an elaborate April fools joke. Wasn't webwit's reason for the sale lack of engagement from the owner?

Yes, exactly - and several decades later, they'll remember these good old days when everyone used a smartphone... :D
...and the CBers will still be wearing bell bottoms, the graying phonesie kids will still be going, ..."like, dewd..." as they text with their eyebrows, while us hipsters desperately try to find an OS and browser for an actual computer that isn't blocked by the latest htts: upgrade. Failing that, we'll be reinking dried out printer ribbons so we can talk about our...uh...oh yeah, keyboards.

Beautiful. Wish I could hit a "like" react button like on forums that feel like they were actually designed for the 21st century but I guess I have to write out this reply instead.

That was a nice trick, but you can't fool me. I have seen many pixels in my life. And I can see your photoshopped and fake news "caligraphy" right through like transparent glass!!!

Who even has 1920s pen? I mean isnt the click leaf all rusted by now? And hey what about the spring? Ohhh you are a phony sir.

Needs RGB. Shine dat shit out the sides or we ain't even talkin'. I'ma see sixty shades of unicorn puke, all in one time.

DT merch at Massdrop isn't such a bad idea. They won't sell much—we're way over heeeeeeeere!—and their page design keeps us real snobs away from their website. No see, no waterfowl, or however the saying goes.

What would really wind us up is sponsorship *on this forum*. Pencil it in for April 1st!

Hey everyone,

Sorry for the absence, I am handling the backend at the moment. I’ve been overseas for work all week and will be back in the U.K. on Saturday. Will update you all over the weekend.

No likes/dislikes, only discord style reacts but none of the useful smilies are present as options, just :!: :?: :idea: :arrow: and :duck:. Are users more engaged? Probably, they're clicking on buttons after all, but what do the hieroglyphs mean? Who knows.
I object. :duck: is one of the most useful smileys here. Also, get with the times, old man. They're called Emojis now.

My proposed change to make DT perfect is to add a chicken Smimoji. Thank you, thank you.

This dude really dropped 30-40k on a website and then dropped off the face of the earth. Does this not seem suspicious as hell to anyone else?

Conspiracy theory: DT was never sold (and how it relates to the fact that Finland doesn't exist). Just jocking, yes, it's a bit interesting.

Howdy folks, I'm back.

I've pushed a thread regarding a DT blog - please viewtopic.php?f=17&t=25507 and leave your thoughts.

I'm back at my desk and online now. We've sorted out much of the backend now.

I think I already left. I believe I'm still technically admin (I think they just forgot), but I don't do any administration. I don't have access to the server and I don't know what they are going to do with the website.
