How much do you want to bet Tommy has child pornography on his computer? He's internet savvy and maliciously thirsty enough to find it. The inference of a link pertaining to a nude minor is enough to cause federal authorities to be suspicious if alerted, especially given Tooter's history.
Tom's computer is a malware riddled out of date piece of shit. His browser window is half blocked by all the shit he downloads on a whim. He can barely handle using his computer now; Tom might brag about being tech savvy but he also thinks he was using the internet before the internet was a thing.

The Internet existed since the late '70s or, at the latest, depending on how strictly you define it, the early '80s.

Naturally this would mean something to someone with actual technical skills. According to Tom actual dates and times, however, he was out in the middle of podunk nowhere with his hippy friends using laptops and hooking up to satellites with tech that was in it's infancy.

Tom's description of his technical prowess and proximity to people with technical know-how is comical. Tom literally thinks that he was doing something so impressive that his computer "dumpped so much current to ground" that he tripped the breaker for the entire neighborhood. Also, he claimed to have put a Real Things web server on the internet over a satellite connection in the 70's.

Where did he say that? That's insane. The web didn't exist until 1991.

Correction, 1985 for the web server, 1989 for laptops with satellite internet.

I maintain that nobody was "online" from a laptop with satellite internet in 1989.
He's only correct in two things, namely the years. 1985 was when Quantum Link, an online service for the C64 and C128 came out, and 1989 saw them rebrand as... America Online. This proves he's lying when he says that "only people with yadda yadda yadda contracts could access it," especially since BBS servers existed long before '85. @AnOminous is right, though, about the web not existing before '91. Considering they were a bunch of hippies in a desert I really really doubt they could afford to buy/lease server hardware in '85, much less advertise it.

Clearly the "satellite access" story is bullshit, too.

Yes he's quite the computer master. He built his own machine in a time when buying a personal computer was akin to buying a high end car, he was using the internet when it was just barely even the internet (i.e. not as simple as double clicking a Web browser) and was hacked so hard within the first fifteen minutes of logging on it blew out some local transformers.

Edit: To put it in perspective in 1972 the HP 3000 cost 95,000$. Tommy insists that he's been using the internet since it's infancy as the ARPANET. The commercially available Internet started in the late 80's but didn't hit its stride until 1990 with the introduction of the World Wide Web.

He was also on the internet using a "laptop" at a Rainbow Family Gathering over a satellite connection.... in get this.... 1989...

Now I don't dispute the fact that laptops existed in 1989. I am however, disputing that Tom was able to gain "internet" access from the desert using one hooked up to a satellite connection in 1989. That said, if we know anything about how Tom claims "greatness by proximity", we'd know that Tom never touched the computer that someone brought to the Desert. Best case scenario, he saw someone using one. Most likely, he heard someone talking about using one. In Tom's mentally ill mind, that's basically the same as him inventing the internet.

So is Tom trying to say that he worked for NASA or another government agency because civilians didn't have satellite internet in 1989. Civilians wouldn't have access to such a thing until five years later I believe.

Also, you're not going to get very far with one of these in the desert.

Nor are a bunch of hippies going to afford one at the time.

Also first laptop to be able to go online was in 1991

Well Tom loves to build his life on a bed of lies. In 1989 the 'portable' laptop still had to be plugged in just to work so someone had to bring a generator.

And yes, Tom is also a time traveller because it wasn't until December 1993 that the idea of satellite internet was even introduced. There were telecom ones already up there but Tom clearly thinks those are one in the same.

Your move Tom Bomb.

I knew we've had this conversation before. You can go into the general thread and it starts on page 606 and goes on for a few, but I think I grabbed the meatier chunks of Tom's lack of computing skillz.

He may have seen someone else do something fancy with a computer in the '80s, but he certainly wasn't doing that shit himself because he's an incompetent moron who causes technology to catch on fire just by looking at it.

Maybe he saw Neil Breen doing it when he watched "Double Down" and decided to make it about him.

I would not be shocked if that was the case, since it matches his story to a T... desert? Check. Satellite internet? Check. Tons of laptops? Triple-check.
