Quote: "Witchery, weakening, sees the sheep are gathering! Set the trap! Hypnotize! Now you follow!"

Position: Support Specialist

  • Do you have pets?
    No :( They're not allowed in my apartment complex
  • What is your favorite color?
    Blue
  • What kind of music do you like?
    Mostly Classic rock, metal, and some country.  Not into rap or hip-hop.
  • What do you do on your free time besides spending time on SMF?
    Theres time i'm not at SMF?  Nah, i help with editorials and write code for http://www.zentendo.com (my other project)
  • What are your goals/dreams in life?
    This is kinda complicated given that i don't know exactly what i'd like to go into.  I'm registering this fall for Computer Science and plan to minor in business administration.
  • What got you involved in SMF?
    Kirby.  Way Back in the day, I used to run a site for The Legend of Zelda fan games.  At the time, this board was on ezboard.  Well.  The site grew and ezboard gold subscription got VERY expensive very quick, so we moved over to invisionfree.  After awhile, invisionfree became to not be enough for my site.  So I began raising money to purchase an IPB license (yeah yeah, kill me now :P).  Once we had earned enough, I was contacted by Kirby who suggested SMF (it was in the 1.0 stages at that time).  I was skeptical.  Kirby set it up and showed me around.  I was sold very quickly! 

    A few years passed and i was passive in the SMF scene, so once i became active again and started learning more about the system, it became my system of choice for nearly all projects, so I decided to purchase a Charter Membership to contribute back to the project.  Slowly i became more involved in the project, not ever really posting (little, if ever), and reading the documentation and coding guides.  During that time i got quite a decent knowledge of SMF and one day i was bored and started posting in the support boards.  The rest is history.
  • Who do you admire? Why?
    The SMF Team, because they are by far one of the best groups of people i've ever worked with (don't get me wrong, support IS work, no matter how you slice it)
  • Are you into sports?  If so which ones?
    Not really.  Like with football the only game i sometimes watch is the super bowl.
  • What is your dream job?
    I would really like to find something that would let me work at home and build my computer skills (which is another reason i got into SMF is to learn php.)
  • What was your first screenname?
    >:( _Charizard_48423
  • Do you have any piercings?
    Nope.  No plans on getting any either.
  • Are you a lefty/righty or ambidextrous?
    I am right handed.
  • Do you have any tattoo's?  If not do you wish/plan to get one?
    No and No.
  • Do you have any siblings?  If so, how many of each?
    I am an only child.  I have two step brothers and a step sister.  Step brother is 21, Step-sister and other step-brother are both 18.
  • What is your favorite website?
    http://simplemachines.org -- You may have heard of it!
  • Do you play computer games?  If so, which ones?
    Kirby and I routinely play Quake III Arena, though it is quite old.  Considering playing like halo or a couple other shooter games :)
  • Do you play video game consoles?  Which ones?
    Yes!  I own a Nintendo Wii and a PS2.
  • Are you married or planing to get married?
    Gotta find someone who can put up with me first!!

      Nope.
    • How many kids?
      Zilch
  • How many languages do you speak?  If so which ones?

  • Do you drink?
    On occasion, i enjoy a wine cooler or a mixed drink.  I am not a beer guy but i do drink one from time to time.
  • Do you smoke?
    No.  Never have.  Never will.
  • Did you play hookey from class?
    My ex and I used to skip school all the time to... nvm...

  • Do you obtain a good amount of sleep daily?
    If i can drag myself off SMF and go to bed at a decent hour, yes, if not.... not so much.

    Occasionally a necklace, but never anything more.

  • How many keys are on your keyring?
    8
  • What time do you go to bed?  What time do you wake up?

IchBin, i already fixed it, i was being smart ;)

groundup, hm.  well in my high school days i was a pretty depressed person... didn't care much for anything at all.  Kept to myself and didn't really do anything.

I did almost join the football team once... but i knew it'd be worthless -- they haven't won a game since my sophomore year -- 5 years ago...

Why no tattoos?

Dunno.  They just really never seemed like something i'd want done.   I'm not fond of the idea of having something permanently injected into my skin.  I think it'd kinda lose its novelty after awhile. Although, things can happen that might change my mind too.  Never know.

Trekkie, i'm not sure, but that was a miracle with the first stop!!  He asked if i had just gotten new tires and if they were bigger and I said yes (it was the truth!)  I guess at the time my local police used older style radar guns?

But the truth is, i WAS going 68 :P

The other one was coming back to michigan through chicago and i guess i didn't see the speed sign, the illinois officer just let me off with a warning
