    I'm Here Aren't I?

    If I wasn't an addict to the computer, I'd be doing something else.  Maybe playing a game on a computer?

    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.

    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.

    Indeed I Am.

    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...

    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...
