RE: Computer Pro Needed

Well, if you're asking why your internet logs off, I think that dial-up uses the phone line in order to connect to the internet, so that if someone makes a phone call to you, it disconnects your internet connection... basically what you already found out. When I had dial-up, I seem to remember there...

RE: Animated avators

Like Yudan, I tend to have a "that must be a newbie" reaction when I see an animated avatar... nothing against Hatori personally, it's just that the really young internet users who are fond of caps-lock seem to love the animated stuff. However, I don't know how someone could be distracted so much th...

RE: TJP T-shirts.

How about a shirt that has some kind of stick figure or simplistic person waving and smiling, with a text bubble that says "今日は!"

I dunno, people who spoke Japanese and saw the shirt might just assume you're an idiot.

RE: Stress Help?

I agree with Chikara. It sounds like you just need to drop some things and prioritize on what's most important, instead of trying to do everything at once. It might seem strange, but if you do so many things at once that you're getting overwhelmed, it has the opposite effect and you do less well and...

RE: Porn is bad, mmkay.

Yeah, I still don't understand what that story had to do with pornography. What with all the knee-jerk, partly right but partly wrong generalizations about porn and porn viewers, I almost feel like I should play the devil's advocate and put out a passionate pro-porn plea. Yay for alliteration!
