OK, readers. Mak is Back for the 3rd installment. (Hint: In the chat room chapter below he is Hands_Solo. In case you don't get that right away.) A note: When I wrote this back in 2000, there was no social media, only chat rooms and message boards. I was one of the first 700,000 people on ICQ, before it was bought out by AOL. It was all research, of course. That goes without saying.
