I don't even remember the original reason I joined (I just read the front page for a while), but not having a working pc of my own at the moment and not being able to do more than browse the web and IM on my parents' PC (they disabled my administrative rights and it's vista, so I can't install shit or do much of anything now, and I don't want to bother getting around any of this as that would piss them off and they probably wouldn't let me on here anymore) . . . I now find myself checking these forums more and more frequently each day. It started with the project logs and case modding/electronics, and then expanded to the BSTG and hot deals so I could constantly look for deals that I don't really have the money for (except when it's for my girlfriend and thus with her money). Then I started in general nonsense and occasionally some of the recent posts on the index. I've been on here pretty much all day today and I'm not sure whether I'm proud of it or ashamed Edit: I think I'm also catching the upgrade/tinker bug. I have a feeling that as soon as I get a job, I'm gonna continue browsing the BSTG and hot deals, but actually buy a lot more stuff, just cuz it's a good deal lol . . . regardless of whether or not I actually need it, just because I might have a use for it.
