the rackThe Rack is my computer. Its not really the name of my computer. My computer has no name, I just came up with it. I needed a short word that I could make an icon out of. That's that red stuff you see on the left.

Since I majored, and am still majoring in Computer Engineering, I do know a thing or two about computer *gasp*, and surprise surprise, I'm gonna have an entire page dedicated to my past and present computers, so let's get it on!
