    I know that you guys aren't that rare in general. On this board the males outnumber the females like 30 to 1... i'm not saying that this board is a decent cross section of the programming community or anything...

    30 men for every lady...

    It doesn't seem that bad at all when said like that!

    after messing around with the options and seeing what i can do to be unique (avatar, sig, font - all of which are (c) me), i have finally settled with what i have now. speak now or forever hold your peace.

    Really? I thought you came from the USA?

    *Your* location mentions nothing of Earth, whereas mine is clearly stated as you see.

    The conspiracy you think you sense is just a total figment of your imagination and you really should see a doctor before it gets much worse.

    Or not, depending on what the eskimo programmer near the iceburg feels.



    < !-- Not to Elan:(Sorry, couldn't resist)

    i have consulted the eskimo programmer near the iceburg and he has told me that i should seek out a man by the name of Bill Gates and brutally mangle his body and spread his limbs and entrails about the Isle of Wight (is that how you spell it). I shall do his bidding emmidiately and efficiently.

    ANd, yes, my name is Aran, not Elan. Funkily enough, i had a character on Diablo 2 that was named Elandi (a sorceress). That just further convinces me that there is a conspiracy.

    I am still convinced of the complete lack of a conspiracy of any kind.
    Though, I too have had the vision of the man they call Bast...uh...Bill Gates many a time.

    But, though this is the case. I'm sure it has been so for many a programmer.

    I have a pet cat called Elandis though.

    is that just a random name your family came up with, or is does it mean something/ is used frequently somewhere else in the world as a name?
