Subject: [elky] Words (Non)


In Ray's writeup on building his Supercomputer he was discussing his video board and used the word "gaming". Since I am an author words are very important to me. Their meanings should not be blurred. Sigh. I am like a fish swimming against the overwhelming current of inanity.
 
"Gaming" means gambling. Nothing more and nothing less. Any tack on current meanings will probably be lost in a few years.
 
But for now, if you are playing games perhaps you should just say "Playing games".
