Roll call!

Post by SpongeBuell » Wed Sep 22, 2004 8:21 pm

I saw an ancinet thread with the same title a while back on the old boards, and I thought I'd start a new one. Basically you say what you want about yourself, etc.

I'm Brian, AKA SpongeBuell. I'm 16 years old, male, from Minnesota. Besides portablizing, I enjoy doing stuff on my computer, (mostly hanging around here, actually :| ) biking, and going places with friends. I love video games and all, but the truth is that I absolutely suck at them. My favorite movies include Road To Perdition and Rain Man. For a job, I clean at my neighbor's office, but I occasionally do some computer stuff as well, such as testing programs for bugs and the like.

That's about all I can think of. No real order or format required, just post what comes off the top of your head.

I'm Ryan AKA RNS0504 (initials, then birthday) Im 13 turning 14 (duh). Im from Melbourne FLA, and i like doing stuff like building computers, working on portables, playing games, and spending time on this board. For cash, i have yardsales (selling things i find in the trash like computers, tv's, chairs, desks, and other crap that my grandpa gives me. He repo's cars, and gets to keep all the personal items inside of them, like a PS2!) When i get older, i want to be a monster truck driver, or a repo-man!

Ok, I'll bite...

I am Gary, also known as Geebs61(nickname and highschool football jersey number) I am 19 and I live in Salem, Oregon. I have been building computers since I was 11, and Programming since I was 13. I created 2 NES emulators, MarioNES and 80five. I also have made other electronics that I havent told any of you about before(I put a CD player inside an NES case, and wired the controls to the controller port. So the B button was previous track, A was next track, etc...). I recently quit my job because I was being treated like crap. And I am starting work in the real estate and loan business. My favorite move is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. and I know an ungodly amount of information about the 80's for someone who only lived through half of the decade. I also cant get a NES controller to work off my parallel port. The SNES controller does but the NES wont.(anyone has any help pm me) And recently I have developed an addiction to Ragnarok Online.[/b]

I suppose I might as well give a little info, although just looking up a whois search on my domain name gives most of the info (a heck of a lot more than I wish my domain server would give out!!!) :cry:

My name is ....... j/k, my name is Mike!!! :roll: I live near the big lake (literally, what's the biggest lake in the U.S. that you know of??? Oh yeah, and the oceans aren't lakes :? ) I love my little computer :) although I wish it wasn't so crappy :( I'm....dum.dum.duummm.....siebzehn!! 17!! I really like the Evangelion series, although I wish that they'd stop milking it out for all it's worth, and hopefully do a slightly better re-dub....I'm also a fan of foreign films because over the years american cinematography has become repetetive and boring :( I wish I would update my site more often than I do, but oh well. Oh yeah, and I've broken way more than my share of consoles, especially n64s :evil:

I'm Nick (aka SParkfist, aka Gaudeamus). 20 years old, and I'm going to college this fall (I'm very scared). For the most part I when I get an opertunity I do one of my hobbies - Skiing, scuba diving, sailing, gaming, messing with electronics.

And Gannon I'm sure you'll be pleased to know there is a live-action Evangelion series being done in Japan. Also I too hate dub, and I believe that if someone chooses dub over sub there just lazy and ignorant.

Im Sean AKA s3ptic. I am 14 years old and live in Oakland CA. I love video games(even if I don't play them that often) I know my way around a computer pretty well. I enjoy programming, even if I'm not very good.

I love working on my portable, and about a year ago I became hopelessly obssesed with the zodiac, and more specifically I spend a lot of my time on those forums these forums, and the Viciousbytes forums( A homebrew game development team.) I think thats about it.

Ok, here goes. My name is Andrew, better known online as Black Six. Chances are if you see someone named Black Six, Black 6, Black-Six, Black6, or some other variation online, it's me. I've been interested in computers and video games for the 17 years of my life. I'm a diehard Mac user, with a dual 1.8 GHz G5, although I do conceed that sometimes one must use a PC, so I have one of them too. I'm a big fan of Bungie, who convinced me to buy an Xbox so I could play a little game called Halo. Less than 50 days until Halo 2!!! I'm also a Blizzard fan, and actually recently participated in the World of Warcraft Stress Test, it's gonna be an awesome game. I'm a senior in high school, I'm taking all Honors and AP classes, got a 1500 on my SATs (perfect score on math :) ) and plan on going to college next fall (Rennselaer is #1 on my list). I'm also a big SciFi/Fantasy fan, mainly Tolkien, Douglas Adams, Farscape, Stargate, Star Wars, and Star Trek. And I drive a 2001 Subaru Forrester with a 5-speed manual.
I guess that's about it, if there's anything else you want to know, PM me and I'll see about adding it.

Hey I'm Paris AKA pjmk (or superpjmk, depending on which forum you're on). I'm 17 and I live in Long Beach, Mississippi. I've been programming since I was 11 and have made some strides in the Qbasic programming language (If you've ever used future or Relsoft graphic libs, chances are you've used some of my code 8) ). I've been conteplating portables since I was 13 and I've really wanted to build one, but I can't find a job :cry: ). I play tuba in the band (the big one). I also enjoy playing basketball, snowboarding, and making stuff (can't wait till I get my hands on an Xgamestation!)
