User:188.8.131.52 redirects here. Between July 24, 2004 and January 9, 2005, I made edits w/o a username, and a few times since then, I may have inadvertently edited w/o logging in. Ooops! July 24 is when I got cable modem, finally, and a static IP. Prior thereto, I was on dialup, and despite my best efforts, have been unable to find a reliable list of my anon edits. Oh well. :-p Tomer TALK 04:32, May 16, 2005 (UTC) Apparently I'm now editing from 184.108.40.206 (talk · contribs).
This page was starting to suffer from userbox overload, so I got rid of all of them and put them here instead. Enjoy.
I first started messing around on wikipedia several years ago, at which time I was unaware that there was a login or contributors' list, or whatnot. Most of my dillydallying has been starting or contributing to articles about Jews and Judaism, as well as a few minor edits in other fields. I first signed up as a real "user" just a couple months ago, so now I've gotta be careful, since now ppl can see what I'm doing... ;-) TShilo12 01:17, 8 Feb 2005 (UTC)
OK, and so now, I spent a little time compiling a list of articles I started...have yet to compile a list of articles to which I've contributed extensively. For those wondering how many edits I've made on the English WP, click here. And here's a collection of garbage I've found on WP.
I was born at 8:38 PM Atlantic time, April 15, 1972, in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico. That's right, income tax day. Since puertorricans don't pay U.S. Federal Income Tax, however, it's not such an evil day there.
I've lived in the Town of Washington, in Eau Claire County, Wisconsin (just south of Eau Claire, Wisconsin) since I was 7 years old. I hate winter, and blame it on the fact that I'm from Puerto Rico, eventhough my memories of PR are rather scanty, and none of them have anything to do with the climate there.
I went to Cleghorn Elementary School in Cleghorn, Wisconsin, and then to South Junior High School in Eau Claire, although from mid-October until early January of fifth grade (grade 5 for the Canucks out there), I went to Downsville Elementary School in Downsville, Wisconsin, and I went to Pepin High School in Pepin, Wisconsin for the first semester of 9th grade. (Incidentally, when I was going to Pepin HS, I was living near Lund, Wisconsin, about 2 miles from the girlhood home of Laura Ingalls Wilder. Every day on the way to school, I passed the park containing her real-life house described in Little House in the Big Woods.  I graduated June 6, 1990 from Eau Claire's Memorial High School. Unlike most people, apparently, I absolutely do not think High School was the best time of my life. One cool thing about High School tho, was the fact that the principal's office left us alone for the most part when we took over the lobby by the main auditorium every morning before school (sometimes as many as 40 of us), playing hackey sack...usually with koosh balls, in those days...
I went to UWEC off and on thereafter, finally getting a B.S. in Physics on May 22, 1998, after (sometimes serious) flirtations with Sociology, Geology and Cultural geography: Linguistics. I didn't go to commencement, as I had to work that day, at ShopKo's service desk, and didn't really regard my finally having graduated as much of an accomplishment (my GPA was only 2.44).
In July of 1999, I became manager of the shoe department at ShopKo #24 in Eau Claire, which meant, at that time, that I became an employee of J. Baker, Inc., a company that should rot in hell for the way they screwed over their employees and the chains that contracted with them. Oh wait. That's right, they went bankrupt. I guess annihilation is about the same thing as hell, except without the torment. Oh well. As that stupid country song says, "two outta three ain't bad"...
Payless Shoes took over JBI's ShopKo account in June of 2000, which meant I was either out of a job, (unless I was willing to accept the equivalent of anal rape from Payless, a store from which I will never buy a pair of shoes or even a pair of shoelaces as long as I live or) unless I went back to my service desk job at ShopKo. I was out of a job. Happily, I already had lined up a position at Honeywell, in the Advanced Circuits unit of their Electronic Materials division. Unfortunately, my brother, through whom I got the job, had made some enemies among the bigwigs, and so I was stuck in an unadvanceable position. When a layoff was offered in November of 2002, I took it happily. Greedily, you might say.
While working on my CS degree, and then for a year afterwards, I worked as the regulatory coördinator and biolab tech for a local veterinary pharmaceutical laboratory. Since June of 2007, I've been working as a data tech for IDEXX Computer Systems, a division of IDEXX Laboratories.
Other stuff about meEdit
I have a mom and a dad.
I have 2 sisters and a brother, some cousins, nephews, grandparents, nieces, and various other relatives.
I'm a proud Jew.
I'm single and love it, but would also love to not be.
I'm just starting a relationship with a great girl who, if things work out alright, will be my wife come Sept. 2006. Well wishing is welcome, but gifts and financial contributions will be appreciated even more.
One of my fun little projects in high schools (besides inventing my own language) , was to invent a new orthography for English.
For the dialectologists, the way I speak English, "Atlantis" sounds like /ɛʔ·'læn nis/, "Toronto" sounds like /tɹ̩·'a no/ or /'tɹa·no/, and while "dentist" is usually /'dɛ·nɪst̚/, "dentists" is /'dɛ·nɪs:/ (not to be confused with "Dennis", which is /'dɛ·nɪs/).

- Comparative religion
- Comparative linguistics
- Star Trek, the various series (although I'm less than enthusiastic about Deep Space 9), as well as the movies
- Stargate, including Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis
- Good Will Hunting, mostly because I so strongly identify with Matt Damon in that film
- Europa, Europa
- Dead Poets Society (a movie because of which I will forever hate Robin Williams)
My closest friendships in the world are with Jordan, Munch and a few other great guys, more recently, Coot, Shneb, Lester and Milas, none of whom have any particular overriding interest in Wikimania.
- Mili Avital (the hottest actress ever)
- Arnold Schwarzenegger (and not only because I can spell his name w/o looking it up)
- Nicolas Cage I hate. He's a crappy actor and should go work in a gas station. I take that back. He probably can't even pump gas properly.
I honestly believe that people who believe that "communism works, it just hasn't been tried by the right people" are delusional.

Moses directed the Israelites to destroy all the peoples whom God delivered to them, showing no pity and not worshiping their gods. Moses told the Israelites not to fear these nations because they were numerous, for the Israelites had but to recall what God did to Pharaoh and the Egyptians and the wonders by which God liberated them. God would do the same to the peoples whom they feared, and would send a plague against them, too. God would dislodge those peoples little by little, so that the wild beasts would not take over the land. Moses directed the Israelites to burn the images of their gods, not to covet nor keep the silver and gold on them, nor to bring an abhorrent thing into their houses.
God made the Israelites travel the long way in the wilderness for 40 years to test them with hardships to learn what was in their hearts and whether they would keep God’s commandments. God subjected them to hunger and then gave them manna to teach them that man does not live on bread alone, but on anything that God decrees. Their clothes did not wear out, nor did their feet swell for 40 years. God disciplined them as a man disciplines his son.
Moses told the Israelites that God was bringing them into a good land, where they might eat food without end, and thus when they had eaten their fill, they were to give thanks to God for the good land that God had given them. Moses warned the Israelites not to forget God, not to violate God’s commandments, and not to grow haughty and believe that their own power had won their wealth, but to remember that it was God who gave them the power to prosper. Moses warned that if they forgot God and followed other gods, then they would certainly perish like the nations that God was going to displace from the land. Moses warned the Israelites not to believe that God had enabled them to possess the land because of their virtue, for God was dispossessing the land’s current inhabitants because of those nations’ wickedness and to fulfill the oath that God had made to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.Horeb they so provoked God that God was angry enough to have destroyed them. Moses ascended the mountain, stayed on the mountain 40 days and nights, and ate no bread and drank no water. At the end of the 40 days, God gave Moses two stone tablets that God had inscribed with the words and the covenant that God had addressed to the Israelites. God told Moses to hurry down, for the people whom Moses brought out of Egypt had acted wickedly and had made a molten image. God told Moses that God was inclined to destroy them and make of Moses a nation far more numerous than they. Moses started down the mountain with the two tablets in his hands, when he saw how the Israelites had made themselves a molten calf. Aaron to have destroyed him, so Moses also interceded for Aaron. Moses burned the calf, broke it to bits, ground it into dust, and threw its dust into the brook that came down from the mountain.
Moses reminded the Israelites how they provoked God at Taberah, and at Massah, and at Kibroth-hattaavah. And when God sent them from Kadesh-barnea to take possession of the land, they flouted God’s command and did not put their trust in God.
When Moses lay prostrate before God those 40 days, because God was determined to destroy the Israelites, Moses prayed to God not to annihilate God’s own people, whom God freed from Egypt, but to give thought to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and ignore the Israelites’ sinfulness, else the Egyptians would say that God was powerless to bring them into the land that God had promised them. And God agreed not to destroy them.
Thereupon God told Moses to carve out two tablets of stone like the first, come up to the mountain, and make an ark of wood. God inscribed on the tablets the Ten Commandments that were on the first tablets that Moses had smashed, and Moses came down from the mountain and deposited the tablets in the ark.
God set apart the Levites to carry the ark of the covenant, to stand in attendance upon the Tabernacle, and to bless in God’s Name, and that was why the Levites were to receive no portion of the land, as God was their portion.
Moses exhorted the Israelites to revere God, to walk only in God’s paths, to love God, to serve God with all their heart and soul, and to keep God’s commandments. Moses noted that although heaven and earth belong to God, God was drawn to love their fathers, so that God chose the Israelites from among all peoples. Moses described God as supreme, great, mighty, and awesome, showing no favor and taking no bribe, but upholding the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and befriending the stranger. Moses thus instructed the Israelites to befriend the stranger, for they were strangers in Egypt. Moses exhorted the Israelites to revere God, worship only God, and swear only by God’s name, for God was their glory, who wrought for them marvelous deeds, and made them as numerous as the stars.
Moses exhorted the Israelites to love God and always keep God’s commandments. Moses asked the Israelites to note that it was they themselves who witnessed the signs that God performed in Egypt against Pharaoh, what God did to Egypt’s army, how God rolled upon them the waters of the Sea of Reeds, what God did for them in the wilderness, and what God did to Dathan and Abiram when the earth swallowed them. Moses instructed them therefore to keep all the law so that they might have the strength to enter and possess the land and long endure on that land flowing with milk and honey. Moses extolled the land as a land of hills and valleys that soaks up its water from the rains, a land that God looks after.
Then Moses told them words now found in the Shema prayer: If the Israelites obeyed the commandments, loving God and serving God with heart and soul, God would grant the rain in season and they would gather their grain, wine, and oil. God would provide grass for their cattle and the Israelites would eat their fill. Moses warned them not to be lured away to serve other gods, for God’s anger would flare up against them, God would suspend the rain, and they would soon perish. Moses urged them to impress God’s words upon their heart, bind them as a sign on their hands, let them serve as a symbol on their foreheads, teach them to your children, and recite them when they stayed at home and when they were away, when they lay down and when they got up. Moses instructed them to inscribe God’s words on the doorposts of their houses and on their gates, so that they and their children might endure in the land that God swore to their fathers as long as there is a heaven over the earth.
Moses promised that if they faithfully kept all the law, loving God, walking in all God’s ways, and holding fast to God, then God would dislodge the nations then in the land, and every spot on which their feet tread would be theirs, and their territory would extend from the wilderness to Lebanon and from the Euphrates to the Mediterranean Sea.
