Hehe, shadow was quite a pest for the team back in the day.  I'm glad to have seen him turn a new leaf and take the route he did.

What video games are you into?

Call of Duty 5 is pretty dang fun. ;) It has a lot of new weapons and the overall gameplay is better compared to the previous version.

A con - All the maps look alike when you play online.

manny2wethers: you're not the youngest. There are people who are 13 on here too, and I believe there's even a couple of team members who are 13-14.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

I knew you were, Nas, but the precise meaning I intended was "I believe there's 2+ in that category", I don't offhand know the ages of the entire team.

Hmm. I suppose the thing that motivated me most is my major. I'm majoring in Information Technology Management with an emphasis on web development. So it's nice to relate things that I learn in class back to SMF and vice versa. I also missed helping out and contributing to a community, really a lot of the people I help here are really thankful that we volunteer our time to help them. It's a great feeling.
