i even replied :-) meme<>meme, not caring about to who you
talk... :P (i am tired fighting with old intel machines, i
found many bugs, and found out all will work slower than i
thought before (nah, technological development of wireless
networking is still too slow, prices're too high, i am still
stuck with phucked modem, and stting in my room pressing keys)

indeed :-) idea for this nick came when wondered about
homogenous work of internet, and autosopher (adress means
information), so if i write e-mail as a junkie, the non-drugged
part of me (internet) is :
1) dressed in interferencing suit (noone can really see who
BobArctor is)
2) is a cop - is monitoring all my moves (logging)
3) this a mentally split (one halve is on wetware, other on
4) Fred don't know what Bob is doing, but Bob is following Fred
while not understanding that Fred is indeed also a Bob

rather there are no coincidences in lifestyle (altrough i
(rarely) sit on #drugstore on ircnet and chat with junkies on
#hyperreal (altrough they don't trip nowadays))
i just had to name this computer somehow.
