I'm not as morbid as this thread makes out but...

  Hey dudes and duderellas, i was reading a article posted by Antartica earlier about dead people on line and what will become of your "on-line personality" when you die. Will your homepage photograph of your grinning chops haunt friends and family alike from beyond the grave? Have you quietly set your net assets to self destruct on command from one of your nearest and dearest?
Or have you never considered anyone online to be close enough to inform about the snuffing out of you flame of existance.

  I read that thread as well, thinking about making a list of things that need to be done computer-/internet-wise after i've died, but haven't gotten around to it yet.
Unsubscribing to newsletters, deleting profiles, etc.
It's not that i consider anybody special enough (yet?), but i just don't like to keep things disorganized.

(nice side-effect : Addi won't have to stay up late wondering about what happened to all those people that drive-by fruited :P)

  My dad has all my passwords, or knows where to find them, so he wouldn't have any trouble finding out what I had been doing and signing me out of things.
You can't delete ICQ accounts, I can just imagine years after my death people finding me in contact searches. This is the only place I go where I actually talk to people I have never met enough for anybody to notice if i disappeared. Or at least for there to be a chance they'd notice.
I wonder what would happen to my computer?
It's interesting to think that things you said and wanted people to know about you could be out there forever.

  Hmm.

I've wondered about stuff like that quite a bit as well.

The thing is that I'm the only one using my computer, and I have a whole lot of texts, poetry, music, etc., on it, so I wonder what that would be like for my family to go through all of that after I die, considering the fact that none of them know anything about my interest in poetry for example.

I think that they might draw wrong conclusions from it.

Have been thinking the past few months about making a text file and putting it on my desktop for people to read in case I'd die to clear some stuff up and to avoid misunderstandings.

  when I die, my online personality will probably exist until all is deleted due lack of activity.

I have something like that. It's really just a bunch of random word documents that I write down all my ideas on that go on to things that I've written on my computer, but it makes pretty clear what it was I was intending.

  this is my place. Others know I come here, and I don't hide it, but I don't really want family or close friends coming aboard. yes, i'm that selfish.

If I croak no one would come on and say anything, so if you don't here from me in the future for a long period of time it's safe to assume I'm dead,...
or I've been abducted by aliens from across the ocean and am being analy probed.

speaking of alien abductions, where the hell is mesh?!

  well, i don't know if anyone would know to check and let the gters know. Maybe one friend. Hopefully she would...but if i am gone for a long time and you're wondering what's wrong, you could check my livejournal. That'd be more likely to be updated.

My username's [redacted]

  there was a Gen-Terror user many moons ago who died... dont you remember. His sister posted saying that he was dead, and he left a list of passwords and names so that the online groups would know that he died?

I remember that too, don't know if i was already a user back then (like everybody i first lurked in the shadows...). Was an interesting event, almost nobody believed it was true. Think about it : you've made a list of everything that needs to be done after your dead, and then nobody believes what's being said. Why make a list at all?

  This thread has so totally bummed me out. No one knows my passwords, 'net ids, handles, locker combinations, pin numbers, etc. I'd just fade away.
Sad.

  call me a cynic, but I still think Noctural was having a good laugh on us. All my instincts say it was a poor joke being played by someone that didn't feel any strong emotional connection to any of us.

of course my instincts also told me choke was a plonker, so i could be wrong

  Does anybody know a song, kind of film noir-like atmosphere with a woman singing something like "message 1 0561, this is the..." and then something about a gun and "I can hurt you" or something.

It sucks I've been searching for that song for so long now and I don't even know the lyrics.

I think it's by aimee mann, heard a song by her and the voice kind of was like that but I'm not sure, can't find any lyrics of her which resemble the one I'm talking about.

Could it be the song from pulp fiction?

you know, the one that starts "everybody gets your hands up, this is a robbery" and something else and then a guitar with the typical pulp fiction tune starts?

  Or maybe this?

I Could Hurt You Now
by Aimee Mann
Album : Whatever

This is for the one who was false
who taught me about building walls
one who could always turn it around
to leave me here on shaky ground
this is for the one who made good
in someone else's neighborhood
one who was never anything but
the shifty eye of sheer bad luck
once I thought that I would never forget
and I have not quite done that yet

but I could hurt you now
I could hurt you now

this is for the time that I lost
the death of who I thought I was
the things in which I cannot believe
for fear I'll wear them on my sleeve
things I know that will never be returned
but I crossed that bridge before it burned

so I could hurt you now
I could hurt you now
(listen, sonny boy
you just don't get it, do you)
I could hurt you now
(tell you what I'll do
I'll get that message to you)

Maybe it leaves an invisible scar
but I have not come quite that far

but I could hurt you now
(listen, sonny boy
you just don't get it, do you)
I could hurt you now
(tell you what I'll do
I'll get that message to you)

Just read this... I cant imagine my dad having all my passwords... That would be scary... Especially since they have *no* respect for privacy...

thats scooby snacks by the fun loving criminals..(I'm in love with that song, its genious) the song thats starts "message 10561" reminds me of a primal scream track, but I doubt it.

Nocturnal isn't dead he's an attention seeker, they always survive so they can carry on seeking attention.

>Why make a list at all?
for the gullible and the gulli-calf.

The question seems to suggest the idea of an online-soul. I have thought about dieing and disappearing from GT. I must make a list of all my passwords and people that should be informed when I die. I am writing a report-ish thing about myself for that purpose. It's a "Speaker for the Dead" sort of thing. I try not to tell many ppl about this place cuz I'm no gt missionary.

This Puck person doesn't really exist at all. It's really a series of errors on the site that just happen to look like posts made by a human...ok ok, half-human...on my mother's side.
Perhaps Nocturnal is like Andy Kaufman or Jesus.
