John, I've been an internet junkie since 1996 when I first lost my innocence. I began by following my little wife round the world on Chay Blyth's BT Global Challenge. When I wasn't living that event, blow by blow, I was off into some of the most esoteric (well, that's one way of putting it) alleyways of the web.
These days I have cyber blood coursing through my veins and I'm main-lining RIBnet forums. Apart from the fact that I am now a real sad case, when your server went down, I almost breathed a sigh of relief. Even thought about going cold turkey for a day. But, phew, there are other places I'm almost forgotten about.
And thanks for the prompt - call up Google and punch in "BIRCH TWIGS." Yeahhhh!
