    What would each category entail exactly?

    I overlooked setting up a sort of bible (in the thread) as to helping guide everyone towards a specific category of choice.
    • Traditionalist. One who is dedicated to practicing good old-fashioned frugality and simplicity.
    • Modernist. One who practices frugality and simplicity, but steers towards modernity. i.e. Adding extras into ones lives such as cell phones, iphones, etc.
    • Fair to middling. Falling under this category suggests that you are still dedicated towards being both frugal and simple, but you aren't die-hard.

    Hi Mira. Darn it all anyway! You beat me to the punch! After posting this thread topic I realized I overlooked setting up a bible of sorts to help guide those interested in taking part in the poll towards a specific category that best reflected their SL qualities.

    Edited to add laughing smiley!

    I voted modernist. In some ways I am pretty old school, but not when it comes to tech. I love the iPad, iPhone, laptop, roku box. My dad and I spent the evening watching the Apple keynote on the iPad hooked up to the plasma tv. Ironically while drinking beer made by Trappist monks, who's simple, old fashioned, ascetic lifestyle would make any SL traditionalist proud.

    I love that I can use this iPad I am typing on right now to talk to you, Mrs. M, someone I would never have met otherwise but am happy to know, right from my favourite chair. Then I can use it as a cookbook while making dinner, as a stereo while I take a bath and pass it on to my kid so she can write a song, video chat with her aunt and virtually dissect a rat. Then Grandpa can use it to read Winnie the Pooh to the kids before bed, take a picture of the baby after he falls asleep and e-mail it to my mom. I mean seriously, how cool is that?

    Modernist: My idea of heaven would be back at my great-aunt's uninsulated beach house, under the eaves, lying on the old turn-of-the-century four-poster listening to rain tapping on the roof...

    ... surfing the web.

    BUT maybe I should have voted fair-to-middling, because I think the internet takes too much of my time. Back in the 60s/70s when I was a teen spending summers at my great-aunt's cottage, I spent lots and lots of time sewing my school clothes on her old Singer, reading up a storm, teaching myself a language, and just "being"....

    Come to think of it, I'm glad I didn't have the internet back then!

    I put "fair to middling" because I'm only die-hard about my refusal to be die-hard about anything.

    What a nice thing to say. Thank you. I have to admit I fancy tech things too, the internet being mine.

    I voted traditionalist. I'm sooo old-school/old-fashioned. Aside from the internet/email, I'm pretty much still living back in the 60's. Locked in time one might say. A traditionalist to the bone.
