There are two things that I find myself doing that I think really illustrate how geeky I really am. The first is that I often find myself using a semicolon rather than a period to end a written sentence (semicolons are used at the end of most lines in many programming languages). The second is that I find myself writing a new application to “help myself think.” Where most people might go for a walk or read a book, I sit down and write a program. It helps me step away from whatever I’m doing and let problems solve themselves in my subconscious. Anyway, a few nights ago I really needed to step back from some of the projects I’m working on, so I wrote a Web-based chatroom. I haven’t really tested it much, and I know it’ll only work on more modern browsers, but I thought it might be fun to have others join me for a chat.

UPDATE: Everyone’s left and I’ll probably start tweaking the system again soon–so don’t expect it to work if you try it out.
