This picture brings back *WAY* too many memories... I found it posted on the WoW forums.
Back in the day I was working for Western Electric using a TI thermal printer and a 100 baud acoustic modem talking to a Unit 1.2 machine... OMG, the hours I spent playing rogue and the other various text based adventure games and just burning through rolls of thermal paper!
So, I had a *pile* of thermal paper accumulated from a long session one night and got the bright idea to throw it in the fireplace... big mistake! Set the chimney on fire... police... fire department... yeah... that really went well.
What people don't get is that I am, ultimately, an artist at heart. My brush has two colors, 1 and 0, and my canvas is made of silicon.
