Name: Classified ;)
Age: 34
Location: Hertfordshire, UK
Quote: 'A swansong of rare and vanishing beauty'
Position: Doc Writer Doc Coordinator

* Do you have pets?
Nope, I'm allergic to anything with fur, so I can't join the SMF cat lovers club, and crocodiles aren't allowed as pets apparently.
* What is your favourite colour?
I can't choose just one.  Red, purple, yellow, and orange are all favourites.
* What kind of music do you like?
A very mixed bag.  Pop music of all sorts of types, as well as classical.  I can be listening to a 'cello piece at one moment, and then switch to Roxette.  Eclectic probably sums it up :D.
* What do you do in your free time besides spending time on SMF?
I moderate other forums.  I'm also now working on trying to publish part of my PhD thesis.
* What are your goals/dreams in life?
To finish my PhD, never do any research ever again, and become a full time university language tutor.  Two achieved, one still to go :).  A bit of a re-think here, as to get into the university system I'm going to have to publish something.  To make my dream a reality, it's time to jump through some more hoops.
* What got you involved in SMF?
I had previously managed a phpBB forum, been a regular user on a Vbulletin forum, and then signed up to a number of fora which used SMF.  I found SMF to be my favourite type of forum software, did some hunting around to find out more information, and ended up here.
* Who do you admire? Why?
The Spanish teachers at school, and Spanish university lecturers who taught me on my undergraduate degree.  They were inspirational in shaping who I am today.  I also admire my parents for always being there.
* Are you into sports?  If so which ones?
I like watching Formula 1 and listening to cricket.
* What is your dream job?
Spanish language tutor. University tutor of either politics or Spanish, or maybe even both.
* What was your first screenname?
Irisado.
* Do you have any piercings?
No.
* Are you a lefty/righty or ambidextrous?
Mostly right handed, but my left hand can do a few things, such as removing screw on lids, better than my right.
* Do you have any tattoos?  If not do you wish/plan to get one?
No and no.
* Do you have any siblings?  If so, how many of each?
No.
* What is your favourite website?
40K Online and this one.
* Do you play computer games?  If so, which ones?
Not many.  Skyrim and the Fallout series are the only ones I play.
* Do you play video game consoles?  Which ones?
No.
* Are you married or planing to get married?
No.
* If so do you have any kids?
N/A
* How many kids?
N/A
* How many languages do you speak?  If so which ones?
Three if English counts ;).  Apart from English, Spanish, and some rather rusty Italian.
* Do you drink?
No.
* Do you smoke?
No.
* Did you play hookey from class?
Never.
* Do you have a license?
Assuming this means a driving license, yes.
* Do you own a car?
No.
* Have you ever been stopped for speeding?
No.
* Do you obtain a good amount of sleep daily?
I used to, but not any more.  I'm starting to get back into better sleeping habits.
* How do you sleep?
Badly.  Much better these days :).
* Have you ever been on an aeroplane?
Yes, and I've got more frightened every time I've done so.  This is no longer the case.  I was much better on my last plane trip.
* Have you ever broken a bone?
Yes, my collar bone.
* Do you wear jewellery?  If so what jewellery do you wear?
No.
* How do you dress?
Informally.
* How many keys are on your keyring?
Eight.  Down to five now.
* What time do you go to bed?  What time do you wake up?
Varies, although I am starting to go to bed earlier and get up earlier on a gradual basis.
* What's the freakiest thing you have done?
Tumbling out of control down a ski slope was pretty freaky.  I never want to experience that again.
* Do you live alone?
Yes.
* How many hours a day do you spend in front of the computer?
Lots of them, but not as many as before.
* How many hours a day do you spend in SMF?
Not too many.  Four or five perhaps.  It's on the rise though.  I tend to lose count some days, but it definitely rose to quite a few until recently.
* What is your favourite beverage - coffee, tea, soda, beer, other?
Water.
* What do you hate?
The obsession with the commercialisation of higher education and universities.  People who take decisions based on fear, ignorance, prejudice, and/or xenophobia, rather than based on acceptance, hope, inclusiveness, and the facts.
* What do you love?
Coastal walks in watery sunshine and walks in the park.
* What is your religion?
None.
* What is your hair colour?
Light brown.
* How tall are you?
About 6'2"
* How much do you weigh?
No idea.
* What's the feature on SMF you can't live without?

Moderation tools of all types.
* As an end user?
The reply button  :D.
