Thanks for the birthday wishes!
Thanks to everyone who posted comments on my profile wishing me a happy birthday. I love seeing the cute and/or silly things people have posted. Thanks also to those who sent me private message. Especially thanks to those who did both. It's always nice to know that there are people out there who care. :-)

Sorry I haven't been around online much lately. Partly it's been work, and partly its been my computer giving me fits. I was tired of how slow it was running, so I uninstalled a bunch of software I never use, and after that, the computer seemed to go into shock or something, and it became so slow and horrible to work on, I reformatted and reinstalled everything from scratch. That's always a brutal process when you tweak your computer as much as I do, but it's running very well now, and I'm being much more selective in what I reinstall. Housecleaning,
whether it be your actual home or your virtual one, is a good thing. Anyway, now that I have a usable computer again, I should be around more often.

One weird side effect of the change is that GAIM (the new instant messenger I installed) crashes every time I try to add my MSN account to it. So, if you want to IM me, use my yahoo IM address instead.



"Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president or any other public official, save exactly to the degree in which he himself stands by the country. It is patriotic to support him insofar as he efficiently serves the country. It is unpatriotic not to oppose him to the exact extent that by inefficiency or otherwise he fails in his duty to stand by the country."
—President Theodore Roosevelt

About Me You know that guy your mother warned you about? I'm probably not him. I'm more the mellow, turn life's lemons into lemonade, and keep my nose clean kind of guy. Many people think that makes me boring. You can usually find those people passed out after clubbing all night. Whereas you'll probably find me working or playing on a computer, spending time with my family, or staying in watching TV. I'm passionate about people and causes that are dear to me. My personality type is an INFP, and if you know what that means, you probably will appreciate it. I'm a much deeper person than I let on. Even after you get to know me, you probably won't know the real me that well. I'm not hiding things from you; I'm just kind of a private sort of guy. Despite that, I love intense conversations about life, the universe, and everything. My MySpace profile (http://www.myspace.com/willscrlt) has more stuff about me if you're really curious.

Wild Fact About Me My hair used to be really red when I was younger. Now it is a somewhat auburn brown. Also, I can't keep a tan for any length of time (not that I really try).
My Philosophy Life is a journey. Sometimes the sights are beautiful, sometimes ugly. You never know when you will reach your destination, or even if the end of the journey is the end or just the start of another journey. Therefore, you have to enjoy the beauty when it comes, improve the ugly if you can, and don't squander the limited time you are given.
What Gives Me Hope Faith. Faith in God my Creator, my family, and the people who do good in the world.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by If we could throw out all the laws of the world and replace them with these three laws, the world would probably be a much better place:
1. Respect everyone, including yourself.
2. Help others, even if only by staying out of the way of others who are already helping.
3. Other than that, do whatever you want, so long as it causes no harm.
What/who changed my life and why There's no single thing/event/person that made a dramatic difference in my life. There are several moments in my life where I experienced a deep realization about myself and the world around me, but they didn't alter my life in big ways. Just gentle course corrections. I suppose that my parents did a great job raising me with good values and a compassionate heart. I guess then that my parents had the greatest influence on my life.
What Bugs Me ambulance-chasing lawyers, insurance companies, viruses (biological and computer), loss of family farms, harming animals, executive salaries, wasteful government spending, using religion as a tool for hate, economy, bigotry, discrimination, cruelty, intolerance  
Passions technology, computers, traveling, other cultures, animals, family, nature, environment, peace, spirituality  
Inspirations family, friends, nature, Jesus Christ, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Abraham Lincoln, Al Gore, President Jimmy Carter  
What Scares Me loss of rights, evil, cruelty, greed, ignorance, George W. Bush

Quotation "The mere formulation of a problem is far more often essential than its solution, which may be merely a matter of mathematical or experimental skill. To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle requires creative imagination and marks real advances in science."
