My mate Sparkes AKA Stephen Parkes hasn’t really been heard of for far too long now, some may remember his strong West Midlands accent from his days as a co presenter of LugRadio. Most of the web links and contact details I had for him are either dead or seem to be taken over by obscure finance outlets so I set about today to try and track him down via the Internet.Details
How many out there have chat accounts such as Yahoo, Gmail, Messenger etc? I have some myself and they’re great for for speaking to people quickly and, in most cases, instantly.
Now how many out there don’t shut their computers down? How many don’t close, or at least, logout of their chat programs? Loads! Every time I log into my Gmail account there are *Buddies* logged in they’re either marked as away or do not disturb its the same for IRC pop into your favorite room and low and behold members logged in but marked as away.
Now its not a ‘Hanging’ offense but it niggles me slightly when I see someone logged in who’d I’d like to speak too yet given the god forsaken time of the morning I know full well they’re not there.Details
