After setting up a few SMF forums myself, I started replying to support topics in the community. I was recommended for the support team and accepted their invitation to join the team.

ummmm... well enemy and friend are "properties" and best and worst are "levels of intensity" . best is highest and worst is lowest.
so comsidering friend to be positive and enemy to be negative.
so a worst enemy would be the opposite of negative (enemy) being positive.
so its like - * - = +
so as an enemy if someone is worse then that means he's not being good as an enemy . so the worst enemy = best friend.

well atleast thats what i read somewhere :P

okey dokey, lets not steal aaron's thread :)

Ever tried Irn Bru?

I'm fundamentally against the usage of alcoholic drinks, so no.

Ever watched star trek?

Captain of the USS Enterprise-D of course! ;D

What do you think? :P

What is currently keeping you occupied programming wise? ;)

I'm currently making a Website CMS in PHP for PHP-powered websites, as you do very well know. :P

What do you hope to achieve.

Basically the same as the question below? ;)

5. What are your goals/dreams in life?
To get a good job and become a happy person.

Words are not equations. ;) :P

Irn Bru isn't alcoholic Aaron, its a soft drink thats luminous orange and doesn't taste of orange, a Scottish drink!

Oh I meant what do you hope what yuor developing to achieve, sorry my mistake.

Aaron wouldn't need to die, I'd say him, then drop the anvil on whoever tried and suffocate his girlfriend :) The Science officer is needed!

What's your favourite language?

What's your favourite school subject?

Ah, I see. Well, I've never tried it (yet).

Oh I meant what do you hope what yuor developing to achieve, sorry my mistake.

At the moment that's finishing my Website CMS, but I really have no clue what the future might bring.

What's your favourite language?

Either Dutch or English, difficult to choose from. Dutch because it's my mother tongue and English because... I like it. :P

What's your favourite school subject?

That'd be chemistry.
