The late My Opera Community friend and blogger Brian Francis Pretorius from South Africa. I miss him so much. He died a few years ago. Quite the marvelous friend.
After Opera Software killed off the online community, Brian and I moved to G+ (Google Plus) where we continued to have a good time. Then Google killed that off.
We continued on on Facebook, but the online fun was doomed. This WordPress has been kind of an archive.
I also archived my G+ activity on MeWe. MeWe is a closed community meaning you have to log in to see anything. These days I’m OK with that.
Brian Francis was fond of conventional telephone and used to call me a lot. I also called him. He was a heck of an ambassador for human beings.
Disappointing what is happening to Tumblr and flickr this year. It reminds me of the events leading to the fate of My Opera and WBS (Webchat Broadcasting System). 🔥
As Opera continues to treat its fans like dirt, the My Opera meltdown seems way ahead of schedule. I have been trying to get a backup of a blog for four days now. No go.
An Opera logo dartboard might be in order at this point, but I don’t want to see the red “O” in my house anymore.
Almost all are are imports from MyOpera. The true count is actually much higher because I trimmed my opera blog by about a third earlier this year.
It’s been insane! 😛
I started at my opera in September of 2001. It was the best Internet blogging experience ever. My Opera is officially closing on March 1st, 2014. I’m now transitioning to WordPress. WordPress was very ready for the My Opera closure with blog importing tools and instructions. I have archived my old blog here at WP.
I just made my last post at My Opera after a nice 12-year run. I hope for some fun and friendship here at WordPress.
