Rules – 30 Days of Photos Day 9

It’s not that I generally like to break the rules, it’s more that you can sometimes see another side of the story when you do. One area that’s hard to break the rules in is the realm of computing, unless you’re a brilliant and creative programmer, which I’m not. Still, there are rules to follow, and if you don’t follow them, things don’t work.

Holy shit, I’m such a nerd.
