    "Rat burgers, rat burgers Get your rat burgers here"

    *fingers interwoven through fingerless gloves Furiously rubbing together to keep warm. Turns to his brother "there is a storm brewing, we will need to seek shelter soon"

    "Havent we always been seeking shelter brother?" He replies

    "That we have, not since month of august have we been able to walk like free men"

    "One rat burger please" a battle scared forumite demands "it's a blood bath out there, a storm is brewing you guys should seek shelter"

    "That we already have, that we already have" as my hand checks the revolver pressed against my back, "still have two bullets" I think to myself. A way out perhaps...

    No they are the charred remains of those that didnít seek tech advice during the great forum war of 2020 that finally led to the end of civilisation as we knew it. Also they taste like rubber due to the fact none of them were able to remove their socks and shoes in time.

    I could make some good money selling spambot burger, maybe...

    So, I might have to attempt a sortie for, ehm, "supplies". Who's with me?

    EGs crack technical teams continue to beaver away, trying to work out how to turn their computers on. It can only be a few short years now until they are able to block new signups posting so much.

    It's clear that the forum is an unsupported legacy product from Reedpop's point of view. It's not advertiser and social media friendly so has been put out to pasture.

    Forums in general are relics of a bygone age. Today, social networks and article comments tend to gather all the attention. I guess they are easier to check out for news writers. You just have to either scroll down a news article, or type a hashtag, and get all the reactions you need.

    Ah well, all good things etc etc.

    social media is fucking awful and subreddits are just digital abuse (I hate the xbox one subreddit its full of nova blue/ep13 freaks)

    The layout in Reddit gives me migraine. It feels like such a mess to me but maybe it's because I refuse to use the dedicated app. Even the ancient and unimproved EG forum is still more pleasant to use imo.

    Hang on, I think I might have a number for tech support they can call. Don't know where I might have seen it though...
