Gotta love hackers with a sense of humor.


If you are very lucky, you have a person in your life that is truly larger then life. Who is ready at the drop of a hat to kick ass and take names, and completely commit to tilting at any passing windmill which has raised his ire. If you are really lucky, you gamed with him weekly and got to tag along for the ride.
