    Hey B-P, don't be too sensitive. JOhn was just trying to make sure your real voice was heard, not just your sig. which I like, BTW, Is it a quote of someone famous, or something wonderful from your own mind?

    no, my mind's not that wonderful. it's a quote from ani difranco, a musician. and, thanks for being so kind. i guess i am overly sensitive sometimes, but i don't think my little quote was any more overpowering than a huge dragon flying across the screen. oh well.

    Sorry BP, I wasn't trying to be insulting. I was giving you a verbal "joking poke in the ribs", but I'm sorry, it didn't come out like that. I apologize for that.

    And I agree, the dragon's a bit over the top, too

    it's ok, john. i think i was just having a moment. i've never watched much tv, and i've NEVER watched a reality show before "joe", and i've never posted on any sort of forum... so, this is all really new to me, and i guess i've been playing around too much with the avs and sigs. it's just too much fun.

    and, btw, dorothy - that is ani difranco in my av.

    Mine is the cover to The Count of Monte Cristo. Just showing some love to one of my favorite recent movies.

    Had to put on a pic of my favorite nascar driver! (Jeff Gordon)

    Broken, I'm embarrassed to say, I've never listened to Tori. Seems like she has a few fans here! I'm not sure I even know of any songs of hers.

    Doroty, love your av. My godson is on a wizard of oz kick right now. I was tired of all the movies he watches, so I pulled out wizard, and he absolutely loves it. I've been thinking of putting on a sig line from something the scarecrow says in the movie, but I wasn't sure if anyone would be offended by it... something about how some people without brains do an awful lot of talking. Figured I'd offend somebody.

    My avatar comes from the cover to the novel "Snow Crash" by Neal Stephenson.

    "Snow Crash" is perhaps the best cyberpunk novel ever, better than William Gibson's "Neuromancer", imho. (Yes, I've read it.)

    The story revolves around the world's last renegade samurai/hacker/programmer/punk rocker/pizza delivery driver Hiro Protagonist.

    It also predicted the rise of Internet chat, Internet romance, corporate control of the Internet, the popularity of online gaming, Internet advertising and the decline of independent programmers.

    The most amazing thing is, Stephenson made these predictions in bloody 1992, when most people hadn't even HEARD of the Internet.

    Try it. I think you might like it.

    If you like it, you can also try "Cryptonomicon" and the soon-to-be-released followup "Quicksilver."

    Oh, and welcome, ULFmaNN.
