Too new. Even before I've got my first e-mail account (which is still my primary mail) I used IRC. And of course BBS.
Currently I'm without my mobile because it was stolen unfortunately. I feel like abandoned and completely forgotten from the rest of the world already for the second day as I don't have a fixed telephone line in my apartment.

Yeah. I started with ICQ, then went on to Yahoo messenger. Then MSN came and MySpace started to be a revolution. Skype introduced itself as a highly unreliable software gadget from Estonia until it started replacing MSN. Then Facebook and Twitter came, and before we knew what was happening we are letting our lives being run by Facebook, Google and Skyscraper****incity...

we had ICQ.... sadly nobody of my friends uses it anymore. Btw. those were times... I had 300 Slovak crowns and we spent whole night drinking and eating with my classmates. It is approximately 9,95 € now and it adds up to barely three shots. No Facebooks, no people attached to their screens.

You, sir, are supposed to have a fully working smartphone available to you so you can moderate this joint on the go. You are perfectly aware of this. I expect you to go to the store first thing in the morning and get it sorted!

New phone is already ordered and will be (hopefully) delivered tomorrow. Some job bureaucracy (as my number is in ownership of the company where I work) prevented things to sort out already today.

I don't think so. However, I, too, am very curious about what will happen. People are protesting against corruption.

The political situation in Hungary is very difficult now. A few weeks ago broke out a giant corruption scandal. The USA banned several leading political personalities, the chairman of Hungarian Tax Office, Ildikó Vida, was included. Apparently the tax office itself controlled a giant tax evasion. Companies owned by political leaders were favored, and som American companies were put at a disanvantage.
And now many people think: why should I pay tax if our leading politicians don't? Many people think (and I think they're right) the current government is very corrupt.
However, on the other side, many, and really many people (several friends of mine included) think that this whole issue about taxes and corruption is not true, but a big lie of the US. André Goodfriend, deputy ambassador of the USA in Budapest* is now the No.1. public enemy of Hungary. He's accused by organizing demonstrations in order to remove the national government and drive Hungary under American rule.

So, if many people think the government of Orbán is the best we could have, and the USA is our greatest enemy that tries to rule over Hungary, while on the other side several millions, too, think that the governemnt is corrupt, and the USA tries to restore democracy in Hungary... it is quite impossible to have peace and order.

* Goodfriend is officially charges d'affairs. However, there is currently no American ambassador in Budapest so as a matter of fact he's been leading the embassy for more than a year, he is the de facto ambassador.

Wait, what?

It's moments like this that I feel like isolationism wasn't that bad....

Whatever the issues are there, it's Hungarians' right and their responsibility to work them out. That's sort of what democracy actually means.

Yeah I installed that sort of an app however telephone was turned off as soon as it was stolen and up to now it was not turned on yet according to the tracking app. I believe telephone will be reformated (rooted) before it could send any useful location data.
At least I had automatic backup of personal data including all contacts. Those clouds are really useful in such cases.

So the internet tax was just a temporary cover up to distract people from the corruption scandal?

Very common and spread method.

We have free of charge train travelling for students to 26 and elderly people over 65 since today. Applicants have to ask for special travelling card and before journey, they have to purchase a 0,00 € ticket. :nuts
People in economic productive age are really p***ed off. Our railway company even rented the old discarded cars from Czech railways.

Btw. free rail travelling in Slovakia is applied to all people within EU28. So, if you fulfil the conditions, you are welcome.

The taxes raise is left unnoticed.
