For the second time (first was in 2014) I have deleted my Facebook account. It ought to be the last, but as they say about saying "never". My reactivation in 2015 was a need to have an account for a course project, then I had a few web sites for clients ...

I never wanted to live in the plot of a dystopian present, but as those stones sang (a song swiped by the Orange Chupacabra), I'm not getting what I want.
