11 years...hmmm
« on: April 30, 2012, 07:35:16 PM »
Wow, today is my 11th anniversary. I could probably say that's 11 years with no life :P BUT it's not like I haven't had my time away from the Internets for one reason or another either.

So in lew of my anniversary I will tell everyone 11 things about myself they may or may not know about me:

My favorite anime is Rurouni Kenshin and I can never spell Rurouni right, so yes, I did look the spelling up on Google just now.

Yes I do like swords, but my collection is very small at only 2 swords.

After my last hard drive crash I switched from Debian to Linux Mint simply because I was too lazy to re-customize everything manually again on a dying PC.

My new PC build will make everyone jealous, and I'm still saving up for all the high end components. I will say this though, for starters I currently have in my possession, two 240GB Patriot Pyro SE solid state drives.

I have found God again or is that he finally got through to me...I'm not sure which, but I'm better for it. This is thanks to a small church in back in NY and now this Methodist church I found here in SC.

I was not able to finish my Final Fantasy play thru thanks to the HDD crash.

In almost every IT job I've had I've had to so some kind of web project on the internal network and every time I've gone nuts over the mess I've walked in to.

I still have not found anybody to settle down with.

I've only been in my job for almost 3 months and they already want to give me a bonus when I change over from temp to regular employee. Evidently they were greatly impressed with my work in setting up the new branch. (I'm working in a credit union BTW)

I hate cooking inside, but like grilling outside.

Back in school, when I took a course that I truly hated (because it was required even though it had nothing to do with IT) I would take my notes and books and put them in the charcoal grill and have a delightful time burning them.

The tediousness of paperwork makes my eyes burn and head hurt. Yet it is a necessary evil we all share. I like swords. Swords are simple. They aren't confusing or evil. Just straight forward implements of death. Have a nice day. ~GW

I have only one sword: a replica of the sword used by Blade in the 3 movies, which I purchased in western France.

Not much to say to the rest.  Happy 11th:^)

Congrats GW, that's some dedication you've got there.

I have four swords, but they aren't anything impressive. They'd probably brake if I ever tried to use them. Also that's a bummer about your FF quest. BBQ is the best!

Thanks guys :)

Guardian: That's an awesome sword!

Lethes: Yes, BBQ is the best! Thanks to the warmer climate here it means I get to do it more often. :)

You know what?  I have been here more than ten years, myself.  Think I joined October 2002 IIRC, so I turn 11 this year as well.

Wow, we were more active as babies. :P

Get yourself a wife! :P

Congratz on the 11 years.

And yes, we were much more active as babies. That's because we were so hyper. :P

Thanks Aegis :)

Right back at you. :p


Ah speaking of being active as babies. What if we all finally get married and make lots of babies and repopulate GU with them?

Seriously right back at me. I WANT to get married SO BADLY. I have my eye on a certain girl right now, though. ;)

LOL. That'd take at least 12 more years if we all got married now.

Hey, even I was more active as a baby on here, and I feel like a newb compared to you guys! 11 years! Dang!

I'll be coming up on my...7th year this July. Dang!

Anyways, I enjoyed the list of 11 things GW! I myself have 0 swords, only smaller blades. Well, for now that is. But congrats on 11 years! (sorry this is a late congrats too... >.>)

April made my 10 year anny as I joined in April 2002, before we even got really busy here. Hopefully some of the stuff we're doing here will get us halfway back to our popularity in '04. :)
Never say never or always. In most cases, there is an exception to anything you can think of that you might use either word in. "Most likely" and "highly improbable" in a lot of those cases would ring true, but not never/always.

It is an awesome sword, but not a very awesome replica.  Check out Zombie Go Boom on YouTube and you'll see why! lol  I needs me a REAL katana or ninja-to!

My 10-year mark is coming this winter.  I'll still be here!

Always good to see you around the forums. and I'm glad you enjoyed the list. :)

Congrats on 10 years. ;)

I'm confident that somehow someway we will bounce back. Even now there is still no place like GU out there with our history and our community. :cool:

Super late to this congratulatory party, but there is going to be a point in a few years where I can say I've spent more years on GU than off of it... I wonder how soon this will be true for you, GW

^ Thank you Lady Ry'en ^_^

Good to see you again Serge! :D

That is a good question. Probably in about 9-10 years.
