    Can't Do Without

    I've been on the internet since 1994 and before that did the BBS thing. For a social reject like myself it has been wonderful to meet people like me.

    Duke Nukem

    It's so fun playing some of the classic PC (and pre PC) games. Using Steam I discovered that the classic Duke Nukem games were avaliable for Mac, so now I'm reliving some of the oldschool fun.

    I'm The Limit

    One of my favorite things about my computer is how open it is. I've got a pc that I've built and modified over the time i've had it. I can control what parts it uses, what stuff goes on it (software), and how that all looks. If I didn't I have the choice of replacing it or...

    In Front of the Tv

    I sit here, on the sofa in front of the TV and coffee table with my laptop every day surfing the Internet.  I visit my parents, half the time bringing my laptop to work on my pictures in case I get bored during my visit.  Yup, I'm addicted.

    Why? Maybe because I can't talk to people or have any contact with anyone in the real world because i'm too akward and shy to try. When I get online I can be me 100% and not have to be afraid of being called names, being put down or being judged for who I am. I am on my laptop...
