Because I test software on both platforms.

If you look under the desk next to my hand you'll see a little bit of the top handle of a G4/400. A digital switch box lets me have up to 4 PCs on the same display with one keyboard and one mouse, but it only supports serial and PS/2. Thus the extra keyboard and mouse for the Mac.

And a picture of me from a photo shoot a photographer friend of mine wanted to play around with in the snow when I lived in Pennsylvania....

Me this past Halloween....

There's more on my webpage at http://www.cybergoddess.net if for some reason you actually want to see them :P (I have far too many...)

When there are people I know only by e-mail or through web sites, if I later get to see a picture of them, I am always interested to see what they look like. I often get a mental picture of such people, and I like to see how accurate my picture was, although it's often way off.
So I was intrigued to see on this page pictures of a few people whom I have got to know a little through their messages. I think there was a previous thread including people's pictures. But only now can I put up a picture of myself, since until recently a picture of me in computer-readable format simply didn't exist. Actually, not many pictures of me exist, since for much of my life I've had an aversion to being photographed, although perhaps I permit it a little more easily now.
Here goes - and I'll see if I'm able to work out the proper syntax for posting pictures within messages:

(Am I right in guessing that you include a link to a web page with the picture, and that you don't actually send a copy of the picture directly to this forum?)

Regards, Michael.

I think that would ruin the appeal to the geeks.  The whole point of the TTB's is that they have a thing for geeks, even if they aren't good looking (like The Geek himself).  This makes them seem attainable.  If they only go for TTH's, they lose their appeal.

I would write a vicious reply but strangely having become quieter in the last little while I will not succumb to temptation.....

I agree with Tau. Part of the appeal of the TTBs is that they are attracted to geekiness rather than the "usual" traits: confident extroversion, power, money, good looks, etc. TTBs are "perfect" women, yet their desire is to be surrounded by geeks rather than CEOs or millionaire jocks.

and just because i'm good looking and well built automatically makes me a non-geek?
great.....
well, the last ten years of my life spent working with computers and electronics among other things in complete seclusion must surely have been me being a non-geek.....
*sigh....
*throws hands up in air in complete exasperation and walks off....

I had a post somewhere on another forum (I think it's "another lets just be friends") that related to this. Actually I'm rather tempted to say that this is sexist. And who said anything about the TTB's going only for TTH's? I personally wouldn't mind if some TTH's joined AY2K.
If the geek's fantasy is a TTB, then what's wrong with a geekette's fantasy being a TTH?
And the whole thing where a gorgeous' girl's appeal is that she doesn't care what her s.o. looks like is sooooooooooooooo a double standard.
I find it offensive. But that's just me.
mephi, don't pay attention to all these geeks. They're just jealous.
