C = }>;{))

Last month this newspaper described some of the purported hazards of
working with computers -- electro-magnetic radiation, strained limbs,
strained eyes. We neglected to mention crooked heads. That is what you
get from trying to read the expressions of a new hieroglyphic language
that computer addicts have invented to enliven messages.

Like prehistoric cave dwellers, the devotees of electronic
bulletin-boards and "e-mail" have struggled to find a new way to
express themselves. Wall painting would not work. Words, it seems, are
not enough. Inarticulate sounds cannot be displayed on screens.  To
make their messages feel more like personal contact, they have hit on
using the punctuation marks on an ordinaty keyboard in order to pull
faces at each other. To read these signs, you have to put your head on
your left shoulder.

The basic unit is:
                                 :-)

the "smiley", a standard smiling face. In context, this can mean "I'm
happy to hear from you", or other pleasantries.  The smiley can also
wink:
                                 ;-)
or frown:
                                 :-(

among other things. The language can express many things about the
user's appearance:

                8-)   :-{)   8:-)   :-)-8   :-Q   @:-)

These signs mean, respectively, that the user wears sunglasses, has a
moustache, is a little girl, is a big girl, smokes, wears a turban.

The smiley can also indicate some subtleties of mood and response:

                     :-D   :-/   :-e   :-7   :-X

These mean that he is laughing, is sceptical, is disappointed, is wry,
is keeping his lips sealed.

Many of the signs (perhaps the majority in use on America's biggest
computer networks) are simply absurd fun, verging on the
unintelligible:

                       :-F   *:o)   +-:-)   @=

The user is a buck-toothed vampire with one tooth missing, is a clown,
holds religious office, is pro-nuclear. The hieroglyph of our title
means that the user is a drunk, devilish chef with a toupee in an
updraft, a moustache and a double chin.  Now you know what electronic
mail is used for.

 The Unofficial Smilie Dictionary

 :-)   Your basic smilie. This smilie is used to inflect a sarcastic or
       joking statement since we can't hear voice inflection over Unix.

       More of a "don't hit me for what I just said" smilie.
 :-(   Frowning smilie. User did not like that last statement or is upset
       or depressed about something.

       good as a happy smilie

I went into the gopher.ora.com and retrieved the smiley file.  I have
decided to post it up here for those who are confused on the telnet
instructions.

The list of smileys in this file is more comprehensive than I have seen
anywhere else, largely because it is a superset of all the smiley lists
I have ever seen posted on the net.  I have lost some of the original
attributions; the articles whose headers I have retained are these:

In the interest of completeness and to the best of my knowledge (I
started this collection several years ago) I have not "censored" the

some of them offensive!
