Sitting here in Pizza Express, munching on my Capricciosa (thanks to Pizza Express’s very generous 2 for 1 – most expensive one free – offer) a bizarre and frankly rather worrying thought popped into my head…. namely “Who the hell was jezar@cix anyway?”. Now, this was worrying for a couple of reasons:
1. jezar@cix was from my subconcious buried back in circa 1995 (when I was first on the internet and a member of CiX (Compulink Information Exchange – a BBS or early forum system for those under the age of 30) to satisfy my Psion technolust)… and
2. Jezar@cix was actually Jeremy Wakefleld, and at the time I took an instant dislike to him – for no reason other than one line in his CiX profile – something along the lines of (and I’m para-phrasing through 14 years of mind-fog here…), wait for it… “women should use the power and beauty of their sexuality to enhance their personality not degrade it….“.!?!#$ What a complete wnaker! Sorry jezar@cix if you’re reading this and offended – I couldn’t believe anyone would actually write such a pretentious twaddle in their profile! And there was another classic boast along the lines of “…I even sold insurance door-to-door just to prove to myself that I could do it”. Well done you. Maybe my reaction to his profile says more about me than him! But, who cares? Anyway, and co-incidentally, I think he ended up working for Psion and/or Symbian. Presumably now he’s lost in the overall noodle-shgrapple that’s post Nokia aquisition/Symbian Foundation fall-out…. Again, I say, “Who Cares?” Meh.
(Anyway, why have they got the lyrics to Bohemian Rhapsody on the wall in a bloody Pizza restaurant???)
