    Default Do you ever....?

    Do you ever read through some posts on a forum then log out, close down your IE and swear never to return, to never again be subjected to such blatant incompetence, such bare faced idiocy.. only to reopen the browser ten minutes later and go back there to check what'd happened since you'd been gone?


    Most odd.

    (Oh and for those with paranoia, and some of those "without" (nudge, nudge), this IS directed at YOU. It's definitely saying YOUR an IDIOT. After all who else could it be about? )

    Your signature takes up far more room than mine does. Who does that make the obsessive online geek?

    I keep ending up being internetless, so I am mastering the <60 minutes a day thing, broken into multiple units. Um--time's almost up again, too.
