Name: Gary M. Gadsdon
Age:  25
Location: London, England
Quote: So this is the luck of the draw..
Position: Lead Customiser

A Bio? Hmm... Not much to say really, I'm your average Londoner who likes to watch the Simpsons and Futurama when I get the chance, maintain the best and only Maggie Simpson website, and a forum. I've been webdesigning for only 2 years since June 2004 when I took over the Maggie site from the previous owner. During that time I've learned HTML, a bit of PHP, a bit of Flash and alot of Paint Shop Pro and Fireworks.

Offline, I went to college (just left) and hopefully gonna get into Uni (depending on what they say, I havent heard from them yet) in a course with webdesign or something to do with Internet Studies. And who knows I might get in. :P

UPDATE: Uni has become a ******. :P But I'm picking up some new stuff. Like C#. :P

Roll on the questions!

1. Do you have pets?
Not at the moment, I did have a cat, but we had to give her away because my brother got allergic, a fish which swam backwards and a hamster.

2. What is your favorite color?
Green

3. What kind of music do you like?
Mostly stuff from video games, Nobuo Uematsu specifically.

4. What do you do on your free time besides spending time on SMF?
Not an awful lot. Maintain Multi Talk 2, and My Simpsons Website at http://babysimpson.co.uk, which recently got rebranded, as The War of the Simpsons, a general site, but extras are planned to revert back to The Cutest Baby or Lisa the Beauty Queen

5. What are your goals/dreams in life?
Dunno. A webdesigner of some sort, and maybe start up a business. I would like to also create my own community suite type software.

6. What got you involved in SMF?
When a friends board upgraded from YaBB SE, I was hooked.

7. Who do you admire? Why?
[Unknown] for his infinate knowledge and Clive_Evil_C on http://multitalk2.com for being proud of being Ginger.

8. Are you into sports?  If so which ones?
Not really, I did play basketball alot when I was in school.

9. What is your dream job?
Didnt I already cover that?

10. What was your first screenname?
Gazza44, don't ask. Do not call me "Gaz", "Gazza" or "Gazman", you must have known me since I was two.

11. Do you have any piercings?
I did have my ear pierced when I was 10 but it has since closed up.

12. Are you a lefty/righty or ambidextrous?
Righty!

Nope. And I dont intend to get any.

2 Brothers, one older one younger.

15. What is your favorite website?
To name some:
http://babysimpson.co.uk, http://multitalk2.com, http://lardlad.com, http://simpsoncrazy.com, http://nohomers.net and my deviant art page, http://gazmnafc.deviantart.com

16. Do you play computer games?  If so which ones?

If you count fictional languages, then 2. English and Al Bhed.

20. Do you drink?
Yup.

21. Do you smoke?
Nope. And I dont intend to start. I go far enough to refuse to buy cigs for anyone else.

22. Did you play hookey from class?
Yup. Mostly in English when I was in college. Even then it was the only course of the four I did that year that actually got a decent result. Even at uni, I'll bunk a few classes, I did it last Tuesday (14th Dec 2010) because I was so exhausted from being up since 4am, and only having 5 hours of sleep, my eyes were burning!

23. Do you have a license?
No. Not yet.
  a. Do you own a car?

Nah.

31. What time do you go to bed?  What time do you wake up?
3 am usually, sometimes 4. I wake up 10-12 hours later. I'm also known to pull all nighters

32. What's the freakiest thing you have done?  //Keep it clean.
Lets not go there. Not that I could remember any anyway

Nah, still with me mum. Gars want's out of Britain's Crudbucket though.

34. How many hours a day do you spend on the computer?
Most of the day.

35. How many hours a day do you spend on SMF?
A couple of hours. Usually during the times when the other forums I go to dont have anything interesting.

Again, I wont say... except Maggie Simpson (but NOT in *that* way you're probably thinking of :P)

CLOUD: My hair defies gravity, what does yours do?
SQUALL: It's brown.

42. How much do you weight?
Dunno actually. 10 stone last time I checked.

43. What's the feature on SMF you can't live without?

What's the only city in England that doesn't have a cathedral?  Ever been there?  Also, why isn't it pronounced the same way the river is pronounced?   :P
