    Introduce yourself to everyone

    Posted 11 years 5 months ago
    • I've been a member here since as long as I can remember and while this is probably the best community driven site I'm involved with I only know the people I interact with. I think that is wrong.

      So I've started this thread to get to know a few people better and because I have a few days free while I'm waiting on others. Naturally I'll begin and hopefully some will follow (copy what I put in bold and fill in the rest):

      I'm from: a small village in the North of Sweden. It's bloody cold for 4 months a year and bloody hot for 4 months a year, the rest is in between
      I found RT when: I followed the rhuk trail when playing with Mambo/Solarflare and I ended up at, I think, MamboDev?
      For a living I: play on the net and speculate. I call it playing because if I thought of it as a job I'd probably never do anything
      The best film I've ever seen is: home made .. only kidding. I'd have to go for something like the Godfather trilogy.
      On the iPod right now and always will be: is Elvis and some happy house
      The thing I'd like most to do, right now, that I haven't done is: walk from the North to the South of Sweden
      Something I'm really proud of is: my son and family

      Feel free to add your own suggestions, I just did this quickly to get us started. I have others, btu I'm not sure if Andy would allow them.

      Also, post away ... maybe a ModSquad member could sticky this if it becomes popular ....
