Farty's Fortunes

Farty Blowing Off Smoke


Or "What Happens On t'Internet Stays On t'Internet".

Humour me for a moment. This is purely hypothetical, but let's say I were to post something on t'Internet - maybe on Bobo, or Facepoke, or perhaps even right here on Blogwhore. And then I decided, perhaps because of unfavourable feedback, to delete those last three posts. Not that I ever would, you understand, what with it being my blog, my rules, but if I did. That would be them gone for good, right?

Obviously there would still be my own copy on the pooter where I composed them, and the backup copy stored on the Google server out in California or wherever. And any copies that you, my reader, might have downloaded between me posting and deleting them. Oh, and anything that you might have written in your own blog about it, or emailed to your friends, family and passing acquaintances. And the RSS feed and that. But apart from that?

Thank fuck for that. For a minute there I was worried that something might have slipped out.

On a completely unrelated topic, I'm worried that Mrs Farty has been seeing a minor celebrity behind my back. I'm sure it's nothing, just a platonic friendship that I'm blowing out of all proportion. And the photos are probly fakes. But...well, decide for yourself.

Of course there would be copies everywhere and people will use them as blackmail.

I wouldn't worry too much. At least it isn't Holly Willoughby.

Sometimes I wish this ancient POS laptop actually played videos non-jerkily. That was hilarious. I may have to actually get up off my a$$ and go over and boot up our "good" computer that will (if it is in a good mood today) play it properly.

You know, Mr. Farty, Dear...

I could have gone all year without seeing that photo above...
Now I have to shampoo from the INSIDE.

Marie said...

I don't have a clue what you're talking about, so you're safe with me.

Mr Farty said...

Jacki - No shit, Sherlock!

Laurie - FSM, Holly was hot last night! Word has it she could be migrating Stateside a la Cat Deeley.

Sew - Interesting concept. Wonder if I should change my avatar?

Marie - Let's say a certain acquaintance, who must remain nameless, made a series of blog posts which he then decided to withdraw. But like Pandora's Box, what's been said cannot be unsaid. I fail to see what purpose is served in deleting them, but it's his blog, his rules.

Your pic has been going down a storm. I assumme it's not you!

Mr Farty said...

Brom - I hope you're not insinuating that I nicked that picture off t'internet!
