OK, so let's get real here: the reason we're all together in one place is because we like to dick around with computers. Like, FOR DAYS AT A TIME. So, this is dickety-stuff that you can program or hack or what have you.

She's Crafty
Dig: it's called "Craft." It's a game like Warcraft, except it's not Warcraft and there ain't no orcs and shit. And it runs on Linux and it has little smart people that do smart things. It's fun and I like to play games so good. -- Mr. Bad
