Examples?  What new, amazing, influential, and not mentioned by you but most important, original thing have you found on the internet lately?  Not trying to be insulting and like I said it could just be me being old.  Also if you don't mind, how old are you?

63....CGI/ graphic art tutorials/ guitar electronics/ computer building tutorials- I could go on forever

It's like buying books through kindle.  It's much tougher to discover different and new things than it was browsing around in a huge used book store for hours.

Maybe it explains Trump vs Biden or Brexit vs remain in the EU.

Maybe the other side arent getting to see the same criticisms?

Or maybe I can find as much exciting stuff because there's not as much exciting new stuff.  Do you think TikTok is new exciting stuff?  Porn?  It's like when the music industry get's too corporate and you hear different versions of the same hit album over and over and new original music is difficult to find.  Boring

 

Thou dost protest too much, methinks... :whistle:

 

Joking aside, music is one area I do still enjoy.

I regularly find new bands that are pretty decent, old bands that passed me by, as well as talented unknowns that wouldn't normally get to showcase their skills.

That's cool.  Not new though.  Probably some of the oldest stuff on the web as far as subjects go.  I used to be fairly expert at 3-D modelling rendering and photoshop, built all of my own computers from the early 90's to the 2010's, could actually remove lines of virus and malware manually in 95 and XP, had a ton of software and hardware for recording music and my own in home studio.  See it is just me being old.  I'm bored with all of that stuff now, but you're right, it is exciting if your into it.

Crap burying gold beneath a mound of garbage for the most part.  But yeah I agree.

yes of course but it's not the internet's fault there is 'nothing new' that excites you, is it?? if you're not excited about anything with regards to the vastness of the www then what does that say about you?

if you want something different then create it yourself & don't rely on others to do it for you!!! or should i say don't moan at others for not doing it? i don't know- what do you think?

I'm not moaning at others I'm just saying that from my perspective the web is not as vibrant as it used to be.  There is a ton on it, certainly, but I think after a certain point in life you will find it's not as substantial as it seems now.   One day you may agree with me, who knows?

Oh sorry to offend you :rolleyes:.  But if you go through this thread you commented at me not the other way around.  I made a comment (not to you), you asked a question, I answered and so on and so on and now you're playing like I'm harassing or boring you and telling me to get a life? This will probably be the most excitement you'll have today.  Get a life? :lol:  Thanks for the advice, if you don't like what I say you don't really need to post at me do you?

Others as I call them?  Alrighty then.

seriously though, OS:

is it the FACT that nothing new within the weird & wonderful community has failed to come up with anything substantial with regard to proof  of it's existence- is this deep down what you mean?

Oh no, I'm not buying into this conspiracy of a fake or dead internet.  It doesn't seem as original as it once did to me.  whether that's because it isn't or because it's just my perspective is the question for me.  Probably me.

I believe it. Many's the time I've read posts on this very site and thought to myself "Is he for real?"

Back then when it had ASCII drawings instead of photos and you'd tingle with excitement while listening to the dial-up sound. 

Nah, it's just you being old. 

I do not miss the days of having to wait HOURS for photos to download. Watching them slowly fill in from the top. Taking FOREVER to get to the good parts of the photos...........

Ah, yes, the downloading... estimated time 20 minutes, then it jumps at 6 hours, then back to 12 minutes, then your connection breaks down and you've got nothing :lol:  

Sure, it was exciting to download successfully 5 minutes of music or a tiny photo made of few hundred pixels in total, but I don't miss that excitement either. I remember finding interesting read on line, but being on the Internet was expensive so I'd go off line and then back on when I was ready to scroll further :lol: 

 

It's logical that the longer one lives, there're fewer surprises left for them, in reality and so on the Internet too. Even if something seems new, it's similar to something I already was fed up with. So the life and the Internet don't seem madly exciting anymore. I couldn't sleep night before an important event when I was young. Now I can sleep through an important event :D 

The way I don't miss my inexperienced youth, I don't miss the thrill of the newfangled in Internet. I like this "boring", old Internet better. It's very useful, informative, practical, fast, accessible, amusing, you name it. The only problem is that valuable stuff has to be sifted from a mountain of crap, but with some experience it goes pretty fast.

All I said was that it's not as exciting as it once was and that there is nothing actually new on it.  The newest thing on it is commercialism and that's not new.  It used to be so different that I recall donating $10 to keep this website running (I think).  I did that for quite a few websites that I frequented back in the days before google ads was a thing on every website.  That's probably why it seems so so dry comparatively, have to keep it sponsor friendly to keep those ad bucks rolling in.
