    After going cold turkey for over 2 weeks without the internet I am back after a 2 week break without the net and after going through the shakes and the cold sweats and all the other addiction traits I am glad that the internet is still here.....!

    Now happy new year everyone!

    Happy New Year to you, too, Wayne.
    I'm off to college early in the morning for a week (and the same every week until mid April), and they'll be hardly any time for Internet. Not looking forward to it. I'm taking my netbook, though, so we'll see ...
