Post Oh yeah! A Hello

I tend to forget to say hi. I'm an ex-Mormon, raised by a strict religious mother and pretty much forced to memorize a lot of religious doctrine. Father was working a lot to maintain the family (he was a closet bisexual as well). One day I just said no more church and he was the only family member that supported me, well, he was also fed up with it all as well so really we just both supported each other.

I am a philosopher, but not a schooled one, I just enjoy seeing and analyzing how people believe in things. A dinosaur computer programmer by trade, who actually preferred working in the service industry. However I was pruned as a child to be an evangelist, so yeah, I have a knack for speaking but have very poor writing skills. I love almost all music, as long as it's different enough for me to notice from most mainstream music. I also hate following social constructs, it's an exercise in futility.

The drawback with being an orator trained by religious freaks is I can make a lie believable, which sucks when you know it's a lie and have no choice. Would have been nice to instead break the shackles of religious ideologies while giving such a speech and just explain to the crowd how it's all a lie, but meh, regrets are pointless.

Anyhow, my scientific understanding is technologies, and how they work, but have lost track of the latest advances. In other words, I can tell you how the latest CPUs work but have no idea which is which anymore. I also have a fascination with ancient Egyptian culture, mostly their myths and legendary figures but a few factual ones have caught my attention as well, like Imhotep (the only reason I don't like The Mummy).

Long bios, I'm good with those too. :oops:

I'm just a prole. The upside to that is that hope lies with me.

Hello.

Cake and orange squash is available in the chat room, I think.
if constructive debate is allowed to progress, better ideas will ultimately supplant worse ideas.

Thanks, but I prefer IRC chat to other chats, the client program does not interfere with other activities. Yeah, I'm one of those geeks. A million things open and running all the time.

Couldn't agree more re IRC, irc.oftc.net, #lor (same thing as the chat link above, just doesn't use the mibbit web client).

Welcome aboard! Stop by chat, we have fun. And some of us talk code from time to time, or OS, or whatever the hell else is bothering us. Haha.

Good to see another geek. :ugeek:
Why does my life have to be so small
And death is forever
And does forever have a life to call its own?
Don't give me an answer cause you only know
As much as I know
Unless you've been there once
And I hardly think so

Thank you all. I am enjoying intelligent debates, been all too long since I have had or even read them. The IRC channel is awesome as well.

Chat to the cake.

The welcome is a lie.
