harrisj has answered the factoring proofability question i had. thank you so very much! it's very nice to be part of a community that helps eachother out so beautifully.

btw, i fregin can't spell. i give up at trying - going to use that time for fun stuff like playing the guitar or something. please don't laugh too hard when you read my stuff <that means YOU christina>. :)

wow, i'm blue... probably (ok, definitely) not deserving of it yet though. but its so nice to see it because i want so badly to be a heavy contributor to this community of free software. but as of right now i haven't even revealed what i've been working on... which is dumb on my part btw. i think that i just didn't want to say anything until i had something to point to with pride. and i don't want to raise expectations in case i fail in my project. might as well stop now at being dumb: i'm working on getting an standard (i hope) and open implementation of interopable micropayments. the design is pretty much done, just lots of coding and technical writing left ahead. i guess if anyone else wants to lend a helping hand, shoot me off an email and we'll get it working rsn. but i want to reiterate... i'm not a journeyer by raphs definition. thank you eskimoses for your faith in future possibilities through some discussion we've had, but you should/can lower my certs until i get some more stuff on the table. but then again, this whole cert stuff is crazy (and meaningless really). so why am i beating it over the head. don't want to end up like ncm... just kidding. i'll stop now. :)

eskimoses has it right when praising the mentoring process. it's truly remarkable in its successes. keep on mentoring, its changing the world! that sounded like one of those motivating commercials or something.

and something to close off the entry on a sad note <drum roll>... i can't fregin read anymore. i think i'm going crazy. i have like 17 books open and i read about a sentence in all of them.... and its so jumbled in my mind. i think the web has destroyed my ability to read like i used to be able to. i'm always jumping from thing a to thing b and can't read straight text anymore. anyone else experience this or am i a freak of nature in this regard???
