    A WEST NYACK, N.Y. MAN was found dead at his computer apparently the victim of trying to keep up with too many professional forums. Childress H. Wanamaker, 54, an account executive at a New York-based new media company, died of starvation according to the West Nyack coroner's office. Wanamaker's emaciated body was found by Loraine, his wife of 26 years, who told MediaPost she had been bringing her husband meals on plastic trays for weeks, but that he never took the time to eat them.

    "He was glued to his computer 24/7," she said tearfully. "He was so afraid he was going to miss an opportunity to contribute a comment or start a discussion, that he just stopped eating." She added that Wanamaker's last words were "OK Picard, stick that in your pipe and smoke it..."

    Ok I shoud'nt laugh but "OK Picard, stick that in your pipe and smoke it..." haha

    It's bad enough Everquest actually has a built-in "Order Pizza" function that charges your CC straight away and sends the info off to your local Dominos.

    That leaves those without Dominos nearby unable to get pizza. Have to resort to going out, or ordering over the phone to a non-Dominos pizza delivery.

    Unless they've changed it since I left the Everquest II /pizza command just opened up a browser window to pizzahut.com, there was no actual direct payment to them or anything of the sort.  (And yeah I tried the command out once just to see what it did Smiley )

    I'd rather go from starvation than suffocate under the weigh of my own fat - which happens so often I don't even think they mention it in the news anymore.

    God bless America...
