Craven is correct (as usual! Evil or Very Mad ) about the DOS prompt. It's sitting right there under accessories, minding it's own business.

This is vaguely ironic, but how did a forum on Luddites become a how-to discussion of computer technology? King Ludd must be rolling in his grave!

Since he likely would not have been subject to embalming and burial in an airtight coffin, there's probably not a whole lot of King Ludd left to roll!

Metaphorically speaking, of course. And in more ways than one, since there's no evidence that an actual Ned Ludd ever existed!

Alas, I think it is so, patiodog. I read a book on the subject not too long ago, Rebels Against the Future, by Kirkpatrick Sale. The Luddites existed, for sure, just no evidence of an actual Ned Ludd.

Hmmm. Followers of a king of dubious authenticity. I am reluctant to make comparisons...

Kind of reminds one of some major religions, doesn't it?

Not that I mean to imply, of course, any of the major belief systems any of us believes in... Embarrassed

Gotcha, D'art. (Funny.) You with your avatar -- you couldn't mean too much, could you?

Hihihi...
I will have happy thoughts for the rest of the night now... What a hilarious thread this is!

Don't go too hard on old poor Lot now guys...
There you are, minding your own business, probably trying not to get sodomized when your not watching (seemed to be quite the sport in Sodom and Gomorra). Suddenly when you sit down by the gate (not stand but sit : so they couldn't sodomize him) you get 2 angels for a visit.
Now I don't know about you, but I'd be a teensy weensy bit flabbergasted if 2 angels suddenly came to look me up. Then, when he's home all the men of Sodom come to his door so they can have some time alone with the two new strangers... And here Lot knew they were sodomizers, since they were interested in the males... Now I reckon Lot has a tough choice : offering the 2 angels up to be sodomized or offering his daughters up to be... what? It seemed that the people in Sodom weren't really that interested in women anyways, since Lot says that they had not know any men yet. Still, apparently the men were very active sexually, since they ALL gather to get their hands on 2 newly arrived strangers... And Lot had lived there for some time allready... I would therefore say that either the 2 strangers were incredibly handsome and the poor girls were very ugly(but this is nowhere stated), or the males in Sodom were just not interested in female companionship...
Enough about Lot though,

I am amazed to find there are more people here that share my aversion to cellular phones. Everyone around me thinks I'm a nut, since everyone has one. But not me though! Still, I worked with computers, I studied Computerscience for a while(but I never finished it, that's a plus on the Luddite scale I guess), I guess I don't qualify as a Luddite... yet.

If the males of Sodom were just not interestin in female companionship, why were there so many Sodomites?!?

Maybe the Sodomites were into an early version of cloning, in which case they wouldn't be Luddites. Speaking of which, are the Raelians perhaps the least Luddite folks around? I think they may be...

Perhaps a VERY large number of immigrations and emigrations...
In come the sodomites, out go the non-sodomites...
