Hi, my name is b_sharp and I'm a computaholic.

I have been clean for 2 seconds, nope make that 2 seconds.

Oh heck, I've never been clean.

I started computing back in 1985 when I was introduced, by someone I thought a friend, to the Atari 800XL. It started rather benignly, as most addictions do, with the occasional game played but that quickly lead to an obsession with operating systems and databases. At one point it got so bad I entered University and through a lot of painful work to a B.Sc. in computer science. That was a dark time indeed. I was fortunate to escape with my sanity (for some reason, my wife disagrees with that assessment)

Unfortunately that wasn't the height of addiction. Although I have difficulty admitting the depth of my addiction, I feel I must - I later started my own computer service and software company.

It has now reached the point where all I do is remove spyware and the occasional virus.

As you can see, I desperately need help. My life has become a sad, sad mess.
