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?

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!

Not buying thecutestbaby.co.uk while you had the chance? No wait.. Nevermind. :P

Gary

Well, first, thats not the thing I was refering to. Joe Joe'll know what I'm on about.

And the reason I didnt buy thecutestbaby.co.uk was because if I wanted to change my sites name or set up sub-sites like Lisa the Beauty Queen (LTBQ) then I wouldnt be able to. I did want to get maggiesimpson.co.uk but that was taken, so I got babysimpson.co.uk instead because Maggie is after all, the Baby Simpson. :P

Hehe. HABF15 - The Mook, The Chef, The Wife & Her Homer. I've seen the first act of the episode already (FOX released it early) and judging from the first act, it doesnt look too promising. At the moment, I'm going to speculate a D at the most.

So, I'm not really looking forward to it, and Metalica is probably gonna be another one of those guest stars just to boost ratings.
