Do you know something called tectas?
But i guess not, otherwise you wouldn't have asked before what it is.
I feel just a bit curious, because i'm not sure if this is sarcasm and i missed something or not.

The picture is a bit different story, it represents the missing piece, for me.
The one i'm driven by most of the time, but also the one i miss at social interaction if you understand what i mean.

No mate, it wasn't sarcasm.

You know the puzzle game 'Tetris' right?

Your picture shows a puzzle, so I thought that 'Tectas' was a similiar puzzle game, which I have never heard of before

your meaning of the picture is inspiring !

@Tectas,

I don't think for a second that Oly was being sarcastic. Tectas - sounds a bit like tetris I guess?

As for the Aspergers side, I understand some of what it must be like. My 9 year old son was diagnosed with low-level Aspergers syndrome a few years ago. When I look at how he is, compared with me as a kid I see very little difference. I think that, in some ways, I am fortunate that these things weren't as well understood 30 years ago or I may have found myself being 'labelled' the same way he is at school - which seems to be extremely unhelpful some of the time.

Hey,

I'm Luís, 33 years old. Professionally I have a Telecom engineering background, in the last ten years I've done everything from University research to Telecom Provider R&D, with a brief stint at semi-conductor industrial production.

In my free time I used to read, though I do it less and less now with this android thing. I can proudly say I read A Game of Thrones 12 years ago, and yeah, I knew Ned's head would come off.

I have a 18 month baby boy that is by far the best thing I ever did on my entire life.

I started on this because I like picking things apart and see how they work, and plus, I'm always looking to learn something new. I think I coded my first Java line back in December or something.

Cheers

P.S. And I stay around because I like this small community. It's a jungle out there.

Great bio lowveld
Also, I've always wondered, is English your first language? Since you're from Portugal, I was just wondering, as your English is exceptionally good!

No, my first language is Portuguese. Actually my English is good mainly due to my reading addiction, plus a general condition afflicting most people at university-going age: lack of non-beer money. I couldn't afford books in Portuguese, had to buy the originals in English on ebay or amazon (much cheaper). Also genetics apparently play a part on this, as most of my family on my father's side picks up "extra" languages fairly easily.

Cheers

I love reading, watching movies (can't wait for Avengers), huge fan of Skyrim which I play on the PS3 and since last year I got back into doing regular exercise which includes cardio and weight training and am quite addicted to it!

i always thought that moms who roots their phones are hot! is that normal?
