PPRuNe on this new web two point oh meejia thingy......

So,

2001, March 17th. A geeky teenager just back from the parade, waiting on his Mam making a Sunday-esque dinner, goes looking up piloting and sees something called PPRuNe.....

It's been 11 years, and boy has become man. He's not the high-flying engineering god he expected to become, more one of the best X-ray monkeys his local airport has ever seen, but the world he inhabits has changed.

Facebook.

Twitter.

Does PPRuNe have a presence on these? An app perhaps? what have I been missing?

All you missed was the rest of us getting 11 years older. And in some cases 11 times grumpier

Facebook is history. There's a new kid on the block. If you have to ask......

Can we say Facebook now? It used to distort into facepprune.
I find Facebook annoying. Lots of self obsessed people yakking on 24/7 about how it's raining, their bus is late or their coffee sucks. Of course, maybe that's just my friends.

No, it's people with nothing useful to do.

Never been on Facebook. It would close down if I ever appeared.
Although my kids get on there and it's still operating.

Try going to Take This Lollipop if you have a Facebook account.
Good illustration of why not to have an account!
