    Didn't there used to be like 90k members? Admins go on an account deleting rampage? Just curious.

    Ha, Recent proof!

    My 2002 account still exists.

    A shame I gave up on C++ back then. A short experience. But my employers would not be impressed at a "Currently learning C++" in my resume. And there I was being sucked in deeper and deeper into corporate Visual Basic.

    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Edit: By the way, ethic, I still don't get the joke. Does it have something to do with WoW, perhaps? (But maybe we shouldn't get into that, it might bring back bad memories for you)

    Mario, I've been wondering for a while: What is that *thing* in your avatar? I have looked at this many times and wondered what it is.

    How long did it take you to come up with that one?

    It's obviously Leonardo DaVinci at a rave (little known fact: he invented electronica too)
    If you understand what you're doing, you're not learning anything.

    It's one of the character faces you could choose from Eye of The Beholder

    Most my computer RPG characters where based on a old human mage I used to play in AD&D named Nashua. For some reason that image always stuck as my imagery of him. If you ask me why I chose it to be my avatar in here... I cannot give you an answer. First thing that popped up in my head.

    Hmmm... well then my question will be, why do you imagine your character would look like father time after been pooped on by a radioactive bird who ate too many blueberries?

    My avatar is my girlfriend and I ! Since this thread is already getting off topic, I must brag a little, I am buying a 250G HD tmr, and I am uber excited about it... I will also be getting a heatsink/fan for my desktop so it will function again (buddy gave me a case which is somethin else I needed for it) so but I wont know what to do with it... since I hardly game, i just code and listen to music for the most part.

    That used to be the way people payed me as well before. I now only accept cash, its either that or I'll just do it for free for friends/family all the rest has to pay, since im having too many spare parts that are so outdated that I could start an IT-junkyard.
