I sometimes wish...

That I had been born in the heyday of Command line, Terminal computing.  I find myself a little more at home there.  I do like my GUIs, don't get me wrong, but there's something about checking arp tables, restarting services, or installing things from the command line that I just love.

It could be that every time I do it...people think I'm a magician.  "Whoa, how'd you do that?!!!" Me: "I just did, that's how!"

That, or if I could have been around during the Age of exploration.  Knowing that I was one of the first people to see new lands (well, at least by non-indigenous people) would have been awesome.

Yeah, that or the Future.  I mean, Captain Picard is just a kick ass guy!  Maybe I could freeze myself and wake up in the 24th Century.  Maybe I could give Wesley some pointers...

Did anyone ever talk to him?  All I can ever remember anyone saying to him is "Shut up Wesley!"
