We must have crashed Twitter! I went in to look for you guys and got a "Twitter is stressing out a bit right now, so this feature is temporarily disabled." message. :roflhard:

I have no idea what Twitter and Plurk ARE! Can someone explain? Is there a reason why I need this? LOL!

Editing - I just set up on Twitter (as MoniDew) but it's still stressing, so we'll find eachother when it's better.

I don't know why, but I set up a Plurk, too. :shrugs: maybe it'll be fun.

"Plurk" makes me think of a story about my sis-in-law. When she was a kid here on a Michigan beach, she saw a plover but got the words "plover" and "stork" mixed up and called it a "plork"! To this day, whenever anyone in our family sees this bird, we yell "PLORK!" and burst out laughing!

I have set up a twitter account for knittinghelp.com:

http://twitter.com/knittinghelp

Probably just use it to post announcements, news, little KH tidbits, daily stuff, etc. Anything important would of course be posted here at the forum as well, but if you're curious about some of minutia of KH feel free to follow along.

Hope everyone is having a great February. It is snowing here once again. Amy and I are really looking forward to spring!

Hi, everybody. I have cancelled my Twitter account (as myself - MoniDew) but set one up as my business, instead. Please follow me as "youareprecisely" (you get it, right? My Cup of Tea....?) When you do, please let me know HOW YOU KNOW ME. I tend to block unknown entities. Thank you!

I typed in the words: youareprecisely and then I typed in: "youareprecisely"...and both times I got nothing.

Then I typed in MoniDew, and found you. If you cancelled it, it evidentally isn't cancelled. :??

I don't understand Twitter and never heard of Plurk before today. I have a Facebook but I don't know how to work it and I am thinking that I am too "plugged in" lately.

I think I am going back to knitting by candlelight for a while. Anyone else overwhelmed by technology lately?

As a natural born geek I can't say that I am overwhelmed by technology, but I can honestly say that there's nothing wrong with candlelight.

As much of a geek as I am, I have to admit that when I'm home I prefer my oil lamps to electric lights and do love candles over them as well.

Ever see those old movies where the guy is carrying a candle for light through the house in a candle holder with a finger hole in it? That's me. I own several of them and use them often when home. It's just a much nicer light. Ever since I was hit by lightening and blind for three+ months I've preferred natural light to electric as it's easier on the eyes.

Try this link: http://twitter.com/youareprecisely
Yeah, I guess there is a mix up with the old account. I can't log into it, but it's still there...weird...

By the way, I am following you as youareprecisely. Check under who follows you, and you'll find me.

did you cancel your twitter account, Mason? I just tried to "follow" you, but it wouldn't let me... or maybe I'm blocked...?

No you're not blocked. I canceled the account for personal reasons I won't go into here. I still have a Plurk account under KnittingGuy.
