A conspiracy theory

I love my house. But enough about that.

What I took from my buying experience is the knowledge that people are far more kind and generous than I ever thought possible. From the overall well wishes, to the loan shark (loan turtle?), to my coworkers who paid for an epoxy floor for my garage. And the one who came over and spent his Sunday installing it. And Mandrew who is my hero because he brought over 3 TRUCKLOADS while I was at work, then rearranged my living room so when I got home, it looked like a home and I felt a little bit of peace for the first time in weeks. And he gave the bunny treats. And the puppy some love. That guy really knows how to make a girl swoon. And the fellas who gave me their Saturday morning, moved my crap, and then THANKED me for such an easy move. And then left before I could feed them beer. or lunch. and before they ate all the donuts. Ahem. And Pdog who let me feed him beer and lunch. It made me happy to treat.

And my wife. I seperate her out from everyone else that helped me to move because she did so much more. She listened to nonstop house talk for three months. She gave me support and encouragement and mushy gushy. Overall, she makes it bearable to be without my family. I will never be able to repay her for all that she has given me and she would laugh at me for suggesting that I should try.

The unpacking has begun as has the cleaning and gathering of crap from the old house. I'm gonna have to take some serious stock of my stuff because I just don't have as much cabinet space. And there are hobbies I have not touched in years. Mandrew said after moving my stuff (That it was like going through the underwear drawer of my personality) that I need to have another garage sale and I wholheartedly agree. Heck, I found stuff while I was clearing the old place that I need to pass along. I didn't want to bring it with but, I don't really have a choice.

In other random news, I was pondering the internet porn industry on my way home from work and it occurred to me, that if you were a person who thought porn was evil, what better way to make it "dirty" than to give it a virus that gets passed along to those who watch it? An internet STD. Call the disk doctor, my computer caught herpes. Well, mine didn't I don't look at porn.

Yay for the good moving/new home/happy pets experience!

I spent two hours today trying to get rid of the STD on my boss's computer. lol

You can thank the fact you have a blog on the porn industry. Games have pushed video tech, and porn pushed connectivity. Back int he days of punch cards, the first popular program was a football simulator. Quickly on its heels was a program that used letters to make a picture of a nekkid woman.

Congrats on the move and house!

And now, that it's yours, you've got plenty of time to sort stuff out. :)

Sensei- I don't have a problem with the porn industry or even porn in general. I don't choose to look at it, but I understand that many people do. However once upon a time, my physical affections were replaced by porn in what I later learned may have been an addiction and that I have issue with. But heck, ifn ya like it, porn away!

Nope, I too, had a porn addiction. Around 16, I got introduced to it by getting a bunch from a friend. Initially, I used the pics as models for my pencil drawings, but it got more involved after a while.

I broke free from it when I became a Christian. Not all need such a radical break, but I did, and I needed a catalyst to start the break, and becoming a Christian was exactly what I needed.

Then, when I got married, my wife re-introduced porn. She did not understand my hatred for it, because how it nearly destroyed my life. It was one of the factors that began the strains of our relationship.

Today, whil I do not like it, I do not judge others who indulge. Not saying you do, just saying I doubt I judge people on many things today. Maturity tends to mellow you out if you get to it through adversity.

My point is that computer advances are more from games and porn than any other factor. Science research, even CAD design and other graphic carreers, tend to attract people who are happy to use what they have and rarely push the tech limit to get the job done.
