This is me. I own a big dog but my addy is all over the place on my Dark Tower fan site.

I basically invite people to come see me

Yes I love your Dark Tower site btw.

Let's go ahead and add being IM'd at 5 am with your pc right next to you and sound on, because you fell asleep watching TV online and the volume is turned way up. Mind you the member IM'ing me wants a thread deleted and knows my time zone.

wtf??? seriously!! I just raised my head, looked at my laptop and shut the screen.

I have to disagree with you there as well...Geeks are no longer being seen as the outcast nerds of the 80s, new surveys show that geeks are the most friendly people around and folks like to stay in contact with geeks because of the level of knowledge etc...and guess what, geeks are the ones driving around in the BMWs, living in Cali and owning hot-shot enterprises...so be proud to be a geek.

I had someone subscribe me to a lot of porn magazines. Actually I guess this could be called a fringe benefit.

I enjoy most of my users, however there are some that irritate me:
- whiners! I really, really hate whiners
- users who think the forum is real life. I had a user banned recently for just three days and at 5 minutes after the 72 hours were up, he emailed my private email, my *husbands* email, and the site admin email asking why he still couldn't get on. (The Scheduled Task hadn't run yet.)
- users who come onto the forum and post a poll to change things. Sorry, if you want things differently, start your own forum!

Other things I dislike about being the site owner:
- server cr*p. I never realized I was gonna have to deal with servers so much. Our site grew pretty fast and we got put onto a dedicated server within 4 months and I was suddenly having to deal with it all myself. Ick!!!!
- being the only one who can fix things! No one else on Staff is interested in learning vbulletin.
- time, time, time! I never realized how much time it would take. And, even when I am not on the computer dealing with the site, it seems I am always thinking of a problem, or how to change things, or something related to the site or vbulletin.



Other than those things, I really enjoy running a site. I (and all those on Staff on my site) are happy to provide a site that so many users use and enjoy.

Sadly many geeks like myself live in "white trash redneck towns" where it's still more important to know how to turn a wrench than it is to work on these new fangled adding machines. Thankfully I can do both but you'd never be able to tell just by looking.

I've also found my luck with women to be sub-par... Sure they are very interested in me until Mr. I work at kinkos and have a nice car that my parents paid for walks up. Of course lately I've realized I'm after the wrong type of woman (hint: they suck down liquor like water and get passed around like a pogo-stick).

At any rate I hear where you're coming from and know I need a change in environment. But I must disagree with you on geeks living the high life. Most geeks I know drive compact Japanese cars and still live with their parents.

I would say that has to do with genetics and background lighting of your work area vs. computer scrn.
- I have always had the same vision. (16 years of pc's)
- amber / green screen, 9 inch CRT to 22" LCD.
- avj. 15-20 hour days - 7 days a week

I don't were glasses and have great night vision.

I was half-joking when I posted that.

My eyesight is still 20/20 as far as I know...have not had it tested in years. I can drive down a backroad at 100mph in the middle of the night with the headlights off if that gives you any idea on how good my sight is (don't ask why I'm doing this....it's part of my personal training ).

What I do get is "strain" on the eyes from working in front of my CRT for extended hours. I'm sure there is some long term damage but again I've yet to notice it when doing other things.

The thing I hate most is the ones that say that the forum community sucks and there's too many noobs and it was better just last week and blah blah blah.

I also hate being the "main admin" and having EVERYONE PM/e-mail me with their problems. Not just forum problems, like permissions screwing up or something but PERSONAL problems. Like I've had to mediate a fued between two members lately over who a FICTIONAL CHARACTER should be shipped with. (There were death threats being passed around)

I seriously go "People, wtf, get a life."

I must say: 'dislike'

But most of that come from a feeling of being treated unfairly

Hmmm then it depends what kind of a geek you are...there are the ones that are knowledgeable, the ones that just act geeky cause they are weird, the ones that become geeks cause no one else will take them as friends... I dunno. I guess also, if they choose to continue living the live at home, eat chips and program lifestyle, they would end up like that.
