#partial #introduction The RELAY network on BITNET was the inspiration for IRC. Nodes were known by their address (RELAY@BITNIC) and a nickname, traditionally a location (New_York). One exception was the node nicknamed "TwiliteZne", based at Clarkson University in Potsdam, NY. Rumor has it that the chief student operator (me) picked that because no one knew where the heck Potsdam was. See http://phrack.org/issues/23/5.html for a partial node list and a few tidbits of ancient network history.

maybe i should have a permanent Out Of Office Autoreply that says something like "thanks for your email, i might reply properly later, but at the moment the idea of replying to your email, and also the fact that i am supposed to, is ruining my day, and i'm not sure i have the emotional energy to work out a better way of saying this, go fuck yourself, i didn't mean that sorry, please don't ever send me anything ever again, i want a quiet life, please let me be in peace, let my soul rest, o hecky"
