Out of the Blue

Happy birthday MTV, as my old employer first went on the air on this day in 1981 with the perfect debut, Video Killed the Radio Star. That means the channel will turn the big 4-0 next year. I'm hoping this inspires some sort of reunion, as it would be great to see some of my old cohorts again.

Obituary: Bill English, wizard behind the scenes of seminal computer technologies, dies at 91. Thanks Slashdot.

Blue, It seems your mail server is rejecting most of my News emails, claiming that they contain a virus! I cannot even tell you in an email what sites cause it. If I did this email would not make it to you!

Heck, I tried to send the above to you and it claims my plaintext only message has a virus.

I just now sent Blue a news item.
We'll see if it bounces.

Dear Blue
If there's a reunion please say Hi to Martha Quinn for me.

Whelp
Seems I'm not alone
"Every sentient straight male in the country developed a schoolboy crush on Martha Quinn, one of the first V.J.'s, fresh out of New York University and so cute she could make your cranium detonate."

Edit 2
@ Rectal Prolapse
It’s been over 2 hours with no bounce back on my end. I also emailed El Presidente about your rebound.

A mask is not a political statement.
It's an IQ test. It's a compassion test. It's a decency test. It's a social responsibility test.

Stevey boy, you worked for MTV? No shit! What was it like working there? Such a formidable force back in the 80's and 90's.

We're regressing.
