When we last met saw our hero, he was sitting in front of his computer. As a matter of fact, just about anytime we see our hero, he is sitting in front of his computer.

I tried posting the following comment, but it rejected it because it had spam words in it. Maybe we can't use the word 'girl' anymore. Either that or maybe 'wife' isn't okay.
