    What do you use your computer for?

    I use my Linux box for a small volume of e-mail, to surf the web, to do work with groundwater modeling and environmental chemistry and to write documents in LaTeX. I also create simple web pages and am learning how to do document processing in sgml. I am also learning Perl.

    What do you do?

    My computer is a high-speed frustration generator that produces pure, unadulterated ice-cold raging hatred of everything associated with ANY operating system it happens to be munching on at that particular moment. > >

    That's what I also use my comp mainly for. At least at this very moment. >

    Other activities include:
    - Web surfing (but not too often because of phone bills)
    - Creating simple web pages
    - Listening to music, either mp3's or cd's (actually my cd player sucks and my dad stole it from me anyway, so I use my comp for listening to cd's)
    -- Breaking something (either software or hardware, depending on my mood)
    - Doing stupid schoolwork with staroffice and hoping that my documents look ok when I open them with Word and Excel at school.
    - Relating to schoolwork, right now I'm writing a 25-page report on "determining the complement activity of a rainbow trout with a method based on reporter genes" and I feel like killing someone. > >

    I hate gui wordprocessors. They're confusing and hard to use. And I hate complement, rainbow trout, reporter genes and school. And graduating from school that requires the students to write a 25-page report. And computers. Especially computers. > >
