    I prefer dealing with computers.

    You don't have to be politically correct to deal with them. They follow instructions precisely. They don't have bad working relationships with other computers. They don't talk back. And some of them are so hot, so they work in a cool environment.

    I Love Programming

    It feels deeply cathartic. Like what I think people feel when they build things. I like building things too, but I am better at programming. I should program something now. It'll likely make me feel better.

    Been using the computer

    since age 3 on my parents' Windows 95. Now I write personal scripts, mess with open source, and occasionally code if I know what I'm doing. Really fun stuff when you learn exactly how to add a feature or do something that you want that you normally couldn't!
