Facebook URL user names are now available

Postby retrofuturist » Sat Jun 13, 2009 5:15 am

Greetings,

Just thought it might be worth bringing to your attention that if you have a facebook account, you can go to... http://www.facebook.com/username and get yourself a customised URL. For example, mine is http://www.facebook.com/pauldavy

Obviously, if you've got a pretty common name, or if you're after something particularly funky, you'll want to get in quick. Hence why I'm telling you. :tongue:

Metta,

"When we transcend one level of truth, the new level becomes what is true for us. The previous one is now false. What one experiences may not be what is experienced by the world in general, but that may well be truer. (Ven. Nanananda)

“I hope, Anuruddha, that you are all living in concord, with mutual appreciation, without disputing, blending like milk and water, viewing each other with kindly eyes.” (MN 31)

Never again...

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

I'm not on facebook or any of the other network sites. Dhamma Wheel, e-mail, and my other sites keep me too busy already on the internet. :juggling:

But my wife is on facebook. She practices Theravada and likes to listen to Ajahn Brahm on iPod. Her username:
