    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    Re: MySpace

    It's been over two years since this thread was initiated. Am I the only person who does not have a MySpace or Facebook account yet? I keep hearing more and more people at work talking about it. Now, even Howard Stern is talking about it. I feel so unyoung

    Properly moderated, MySpace can be fairly harmless. Make sure all kids profiles are set to private. Make sure you are a "friend" of theirs with your own MySpace account. Here is the kicker. make them use firefox and make it so it stores the password. They have no right to privacy when it comes to the internet in your house. We check our kids sites about once a week, more if the kid is in an unexplained rotten mood. We also go over their friend list. If they have friends we don't know, they get kicked.

    Finally leaped into the 21st century and got a Facebook page, back in October, I think. I love it for reconnecting with old friends and keeping up with current ones. Never did the MySpace thing though.

    No one in our house has one.

    (Though it wouldn't surprise me if I went home tonight & found my 5 year old had figured out how to create & use one...)

    To be honest, there aren't that many people that my wife or I want to keep in touch with. If we do, we keep in touch the old-fashioned way: Email. Neither of us have jobs that place a premium on cyber-networking. One of our goals as a married couple is to never ever ever attend even a single high school reunion.

    I'll also admit that we've both checked out facebook during searches for employees. If you're going to plaster a picture of yourself falling over drunk on your facebook page, we're probably a little less interested in interviewing you.

    I have a facebook account. Everytime I have looked a Myspace it's a clutter of obscenities, Shakira videos and singles pages.

    Re: MySpace

    I avoid myspace. Too many people have pages inspired by "Killer Japanese Seizure Robots." So although I have a page, my only friend, other than my wife, is Tom. I do have a page on facebook to connect with people and network.
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    Re: MySpace

    So you can search for people without actually signing up? I guess I thought you had to open an account first. I'm so not internet savvy.

    Yes, you can. You can't see their profile, but it does give you their default picture, and some details. That is unless the person doesn't have a private profile. Then everyone can look at their stuff.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    I have a myspace page, but rarely use it. Once I got to college it was all about Facebook, and i'm hooked.

    I have MySpace, and I still check it, but I have recently started checking Facebook more often. Nowhere near the spam and clutter that MySpace has become.
