   Ha!  Nope.  Running "newgrp" is as easy today as it was in 1993.

   To each his own I guess.  I'm a busy person, and the real-time comms 
of social media is way too distracting and takes up waaaaay too much 
time, and time is short.

   Again, nope.  But yes, it's about text, and it's people talking to 
other people.  Just like it was decades ago.
