In an elegant ruse to excuse themselves from writing any further instalments, Danny, Dave and Lee have just launched Anno NTK.
Each Friday afternoon, this will deliver a 15 year timeshifted copy of the ‘Nasty. British. Short’ geek newsletter, NTK, which originally ran from 1997 through to 2007ish.
Anno NTK is a Bad Thing, for three reasons.
Firstly, it’s all much too fey and fashionable. NTK would have ruthlessly taken the piss.
Secondly, their ruse is sufficiently elegant for people to refrain from giving the NTKers a hard time for giving up in the first place. I remain pitiless in my scorn. Quitters.
Thirdly, its arrival has required me to delve into the dark corners of my emailarchive to fix various urls on assorted esoteric webservers. Tracks once carefully covered then should remain thus, while joy shared then should once again be celebrated.
(Respect to Demon for keeping that last webserver running for 17+ years. Please don’t send me the invoice.)
