Print Story Ask Husi: I admit I am annoying and boring how can I not be?
I am annoying, I am not trying to troll but I end up trolling anyway. I think even Gandhi might want to take a punch at me if I wrote a comment to him. I'm also boring, nobody likes me because I am uninteresting. I have little to no interests in almost anything.

Thanks for the advice before. I've forgotten it. Just learned that Crestor causes high blood sugar and memory loss. It is a chloesteral pill I've been on for like a decade. It may be a cause of many of my problems. But anyway I got into ASP 3.0 programming with MS-Access, MySQL, and VBScript.

I was reading Michael Crawford's Vancouver Diaries and saw that Husi link.

I am not sure why I left here in the first place, maybe because of the teasing?

My health recovers and then gets bad again.

Should I stay or should I go now? My wife wants me to stop posting on blogs, Scoop sites, forums, and do something useful with my life.

I run a Linux based web server, and opened up a SSH service so I can remotely log in. This was a few days ago, and now I got script-kiddies trying to break in.

I have a history of suicidal behavior. It has been well documented on the Internet. Many people talk about it. Around November 2004, things got so bad for me, that I did a Cyber-death instead of a real death.
