Hello everybody:More with the net.  I spent this morning in a class about contracts.  Then I spent most of the afternoon working with a web consultant.  It seems like I am always learning something.  Last night I picked up my little brother and it was raining, so we watched Ice Age instead of playing frisbee.  That worked out well.  We also pulled out my Super Nintendo(it had been in my closet).  That is the most up-to-date gaming system I have.  Shows how with it, I am when it comes to games.  I do play a few on the PC, but not a lot.  Anyway, we pull out the Super Nintendo(I feel like there should be a drum roll everytime I say that) and he was not impressed with the games I had.  Besides, it's a (drum roll) Super Nintendo from 1993, but it still works.  Despite, the (drum roll) Super...
