I hate computers


I hate computers, but half-life is such a fun game.

i think it was when i realised that computers are a monopoply controlled by bastard companies(micro$oft) that led me to these feelings.

I don't hate computers, but my girlfriend does, but sometimes she amazes me - recently I got Linux Journal August 2002 issue in my mail, and there was a calendar included with tux pics, so I gave it to her, and she told me: "Honey, I know you are crazy about this penguin, so keep it - it is a present from linux dudes." The thing is, she pronounced linux correctly!!! Not like a couple of crooks at my work, they prefer linux as in lie-nooks.Hmmm, and I don't remember telling her that the thing on computer was linux.

ha ha ha, I like computers because I can do alot of things on them, get my video to people all over the world, talk to people all over the world, and especially with family back home. And do all this for the price of an internet connection, after the upfront costs of building a PC.

It would be sad to think some people only have a computer and internet to access porn.

Not sad at all, cos some people don't have to buy or rent videos and VCD and watch them on the TV as when the TV is meant for everyone in the family. He or she can watch the porn in their own room with their computer or laptop and have their own privacy.

I hate computer when : Bill won't let me do something I want to do (not necessarily porn always).
I love computer when : I can do it without Bill (or paying a bill)

<dork> Computers are awsome. Nothing better than having a day off and being able to sit infront of a great rpg and game for hours. </dork>
