Let me try to explain:
I remember very little about my early childhood, although my diverse and nearly complete knowledge of inane late-seventies sitcoms can only indicate some form of serious childhood neglect, if not abuse.
While in college, in what can only be described as a successful effort to forestall all human social contact, I chose to enroll as an electrical engineering student at Texas A&M university, because as I so thoughtfully put it: "It Sounded Hard." After much weeping and gnashing of teeth, I graduated. My yearning for Knowledge unsatiated, I enrolled in graduate school. Although I noticed my mistake immediately, I went on to finish my degree anyway. While in graduate school I participated in REAL SCIENCE, as seen in this now famous photograph.
THIS SPACE INTENTIONALLY LEFT BLANK
This is my computer. Its called Franken-Mac. It's ... unique. Many of its parts didn't work when I got them. Parts of that monitor are speaker wire. I don't leave the room when it's turned on. It gives me the creeps.
A year ago last December ('94), while visiting a hitherto unknown (to me anyway) company, I saw the prototype QuickCam and I thought WAY COOL!
Hated that wire though.
Felt so strongly about it that when I got back to Texas, I tried to get rid of it by building one of these in my kitchen.
Notice the hand-wound inductors. Impressive.
My QuickCam still has that wire though. Damn Kitchen.
When I first met you, I thought you were retarded.
