I'm the guy who created the Durarara-eque chat back in March 2010 and later developed the message board and other modules of the site. I refactored the code about 4 times with significant visual and functional changes. I am satisfied with the outcome and as such no longer developing it. I am also no longer the administrator of the site, for that, see @Warlock.
I like tea and calculating statistics. I am a big fan of the scientific method, and as such, an atheist. My Internet identity has its roots in the so-called aniblogosphere, but I am not interested in Japanese animation anymore.
Feel free to message me if you have any questions. Testing.

There's an interesting tool focused on nutrition/meal planning.
@Lycan It has always been lolpics/reaction gifs, also insulting each other in a patting each other on the back kind of way. This thread is like a seamless continuation of the old one.
She didn't literally had her breasts cut off iirc, she had her mammary glands removed (the parts of the breasts that produce milk) and replaced with silicone.
I don't know if you've ever come close to cancer in your life, either yourself or via personal contacts, but the bomb analogy isn't so bad. Unless you do something about it very early, it's lethal. Sometimes even though you find out quickly. So there's a timer.
And it tears you apart, while not literally, still quite substantially. The treatment involves basically poisoning oneself with toxic chemicals and radiation to kill the cancer cells among all the normal cells. And sometimes even that doesn't work. And without treatment, rest in peace :(
Now, the situation itself is not 1:1 overlapping with the comic, since it would have to be a guy with a box on his chest and a 87% chance of there being a bomb inside, but that wouldn't be quite so illustrative. Anyway.
who believes in Christ
Christians, probably. Some of them, certainly. Not me.
why do you don't/believe in Christ
Why don't you believe in all the other gods? Why don't you believe in the orbiting teapot? Well, I don't for the same reason.
I didn't boast? I corrected the OP's usage of the term "hacking" and answered his quite boolean question, without any pretense to "boasting". It's like if Bob asks "Who here speaks more than 3 languages?" and Joe answers "I do!" and the person behind Joe says "Woah stop showing off". That's just ridiculous.
Aside: Most of the threads on the frontpage are unimaginative nowadays (using the term "retarted" in derogative form is probably not polite towards those who suffer from the real thing, and either way it means that it's not their fault, which in this case is actually the fault of their OPs). Though to say "nowadays" is a stretch too - this place has never been much more then "[ban|hug|rape] the person above you" and "let's make a manga about us, take nr. five million"
@DarkChaplain The question was (in a corrected grammatical form): "Does someone know how to hack". I answered it, meanwhile pointing to the most likely incorrect usage of the term "hack" by OP.
As someone who owns a Windows 8 netbook, I have to say it's great. Good near-instant startup times, it works very quickly, the desktop mode works not any worse than Windows 7.
The metro UI is unintuitive at first, but you learn it quickly. Moreover, the recently announced Windows 8.1 update will reintroduce the well-known Start menu and make desktop mode the default mode, so that should answer most complaints.
I know how to hack.
A hacker is an adherent of the subculture that originally emerged in academia in the 1960s, around the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)'s Tech Model Railroad Club (TMRC) and MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory.
A hacker is someone who loves to program or who enjoys playful cleverness, or a combination of the two. The act of engaging in activities (such as programming or other media) in a spirit of playfulness and exploration is termed hacking. However the defining characteristic of a hacker is not the activities performed themselves (e.g. programming), but the manner in which it is done: Hacking entails some form of excellence, for example exploring the limits of what is possible, thereby doing something exciting and meaningful. Activities of playful cleverness can be said to have "hack value" and are termed hacks (examples include pranks at MIT intended to demonstrate technical aptitude and cleverness).
Richard Stallman explains about hackers who program:
What they had in common was mainly love of excellence and programming. They wanted to make their programs that they used be as good as they could. They also wanted to make them do neat things. They wanted to be able to do something in a more exciting way than anyone believed possible and show "Look how wonderful this is. I bet you didn't believe this could be done."
Hackers from this subculture tend to emphatically differentiate themselves from what they pejoratively call "crackers"; those who are generally referred to by media and members of the general public using the term "hacker", and whose primary focus — be it to malign or benevolent purposes — lies in exploiting weaknesses in computer security.
