I am not getting paid. I do it out of passion as long as it's enjoyable and
welcomed. There's more to life than money. And if you enjoy what you do, you
don't need expensive toys. But we shall see if minimal wages from the
University can sustain someone once s/he gets married... I happened to have
a long discussion about it with my Supervisor. That was last night, just
before I went out to the gym, the bar, and the night club.

Why is it that people assume I'm imprisoned? And why is it that some rodents
spend their entire adult life gradually becoming the centre of hate in an
online forum, insulting other passionately and fantasising they'll get into
Gates' safe/bed by tapping on his shoulder before they hop onto UseNet? If
it's not yet another paid-for Shill for Bill project, it is /them/ who have
psychological issues. It is them who thrive in being hated (notoriety) and
ridiculing others. And, you know, the bully phenomenon is, if anything,
indicative of the inferiority comlex. So it's us who get the last laugh.
