true.  At least the people I know with boards got out before they went out of business but they really screwed a lot of people around.

Thanks :)

I'm told they do - I don't necessarily always agree.
BUT - it was great to be at Senaatintori when they performed there right after they won the Eurovision Song Contest ;)
Title: Re: Get to know the team: LexArma
Post by: Akyhne on June 04, 2009, 02:25:52 PM
Well, my kids have heard that winner song to death... I'm glad that part is over LOL. I like rock and partly heavy too, but that song is simply to... simple.

Sad Finland did so bad this year. It was actually a good mix of different genres. Not that I'm into Eurovision Song Contest, but I'm forced to see it every year :-\
Title: Re: Get to know the team: LexArma
Post by: Aleksi "Lex" Kilpinen on June 04, 2009, 02:32:52 PM
I actually like to watch the contest every year, simply because it gives a good variety of different styles of music from around Europe. I personally didn't expect Waldo's People to get in to the Finals even, so they did better than I thought :D

Typical Gars:

Who's your favourite character on The Simpsons?
Favourite Episode?

:P

And what's your thoughts on Futurama? :P
Title: Re: Get to know the team: LexArma
Post by: Aleksi "Lex" Kilpinen on June 05, 2009, 01:09:54 AM
I really like Homer as a character, but hard to say if he is my absolute favorite.
And also I really can't name one particular episode as my favorite, after seeing them all multiple times.
I do like the way the series has evolved from the first episode to the latest season, but still I guess I'd have to go looking
for the best episode in some of the first seasons.

Futurama ain't bad, but not as good as the Simpsons. :)
Title: Re: Get to know the team: LexArma
Post by: Gary on June 05, 2009, 01:51:05 AM
Not one of them super critical people like I am then. The show in recent years, namely since Season 10 has gone downhill ever since Mike Scully took the Executive Producer seat (he stepped down for Season 13, with Al Jean taking his place and the quality hasn't been that much better)

For most people, including myself, Futurama is preferred more than The Simpsons. :P

Post by: Aleksi "Lex" Kilpinen on January 26, 2010, 03:36:44 AM
Today, I have left the team my resignation.

Part of the reasons behind this decision were the recent problems within the team, that I believe most people already know something about. I will however, not go further in to that subject here, at the moment.

The other reasons are personal. I am in a position where I would soon be unable to keep up my performance, and
my community presence here, and would have been forced to go on hiatus anyways.

This is not a final goodbye though, I have stated that I may be back on the team in the future,
if all things go well, and I'm still welcomed after my upcoming absence.

I wish the project, and the community all the best - and wish that you know, I am not completely
abandoning you guys ;)

I did forget to say this, but I would wish others wouldn't go in too deep on the team issues either at the moment.
I only wanted to say it is partly behind my resignation - but that's it for now.

Eager to help, knows his SMF tek, never comes across as 'hollier than thou', selfless, welcoming [says that on his sig. :)], humble, amusing ... and all served with just the right temperament ...

... gets results ...

Just a good ol' all 'rounder ... a better man than I am  8)
