Come on people. What the heck happened on Thursday? You can't take off
completely because it was Thanksgiving in the US. I know that some will say
that people should be spending time with their loved ones on Thanksgiving,
but there are questions to ask and answers to give. From now on, if you are
going to take a day off from AIH, you are going to be required to provide a
stand-in to ask and answer questions while you are
Stickman Willy Dishes It Out:
Kanthume asks, "Would you mind if I put a picture of your
profile in my profile?"
SMW: Why not, everybody else does. I take a rather stunning profile
shot don't I?
Iri$ asks, "Why am I feeling so down, and why is everything
just shit, and why do I have a lot of
homework for Monday, and why doesn't anything go the way I want it to...?"
SMW: Let me guess - you're between the ages of 13 and 19,
right? It's called angst. Worry not, it

worth it. You have the ability to select the sky view over your city, view all

weeks targets are Sandra4564 and Linden
Rathan! Sandra lives in Dogwood Greene, has
asked 62 questions and answered 381. Linden calls Grey's North Country home, has
questions and answered 596.
Hi! My name is Sandra (obviously). I was born in good ol' Portland Oregon. I'm a Junior in High
School, which yes, makes me 16 years old. I just got my license 3 months ago so,
you can see me
drivin' around in my own little crappy VW Jetta...but don't get too
close...because, I am a teenage
A lot of people ask me, "What does 4564 mean in your name?" Well, the numbers
anything, they are just easy to type, I'm lazy. :) Hmmm...my hobbies...I don't
really have time for
hobbies, because I'm a full time over achiever high school student. But, I do
love music. I've been
playing the violin for 6 years, but don't let time fool you, I'm not that good.
:) I love listening to the
Backstreet Boys!! I've been to 3 of
their concerts...and they were amazing! Even if you don't like
their music...you should go to one, they put on a great show! I'm also a fan of
Aguilera, Brian McKnight, Everclear, Blink 182, Fastball, 98*, R. Kelly, Papa
Roach, and Train.
I love Pugs. I think they are
great dogs, and call me crazy, I think their really cute! (Here comes my
cheap plug...) If you want to find out about Pugs, and look at pictures of my
pug, check out my site! PugPlace It's not much yet, but I'm working on expanding
it. I took a basic
class in HTML at school, and with the help of a few generous people, PugPlace
was created. And
that brings me to the topic of school. I'm currently taking Algebra 2 (Blah),
Orchestra, English, US
History, and Marine Biology. So, as you can see, I'm pretty stressed out about
all the required
classes. I enjoy school, because it gives me something to do. With no brothers,
sisters, or cousins,
life can get pretty boring. So, I try to think of stupid things, like making
rugs or watching TV to
keep me entertained. I love watching Boston Public, Survivor, Real World,
Raymond, and Roseanne. Yes, Roseanne.
So...what else can I say. I really enjoy AIH, it's helped me reduce my state of
boredom. I'm not
going to write anymore, because you're probably bored to death reading this, and
want to get back to AIH. So, I'm going to leave you with one of my favorite
"Today is yesterdays effect, and tomorrow's cause" -Make the best of each day.
Hello. My name is Peter, and I'm a professional Web Developer from Rugby, England. I came to
Ask-It-Here on the off chance after following a link from Lockergnome, a regular read of mine. I
suppose I'm here to tell you a bit about myself - Ok, lets make this logical.
Who am you?
Erm... I've already told you most of that. I suppose it's worthwhile telling you
that I'm 20, haven't
got a degree, have got a GNVQ, have been made redundant from every job I've
worked at (Sounds
good that - I've only worked at 3 ;) and don't want to work for anyone else
again - hence I'm setting
up in business for myself.
What are you like?
Reasonably quiet, I like to think I'm intelligent - perhaps I need to be a bit
more humble, but - hey,
we all have our faults ;) Physically, I'm reasonably fit (20 press-ups, 30 or 40
sit-ups and 10 or 15
pull-ups level fit) about 6', mousey hair and grey/blue eyes. No, I don't have a
photo on the net,
and no, you won't get to see one - I am terribly anti-photogenic.
What's this with your profile? You seem to have two...
Ah yes... the famous profile. I have one for me, the web developer, Peter
Street. And then I have
one for Linden Rathan - the character I base my online persona on. Actually, I
stole him. *Cue
assorted gasps of horror.* Well, sorry - but it's true. He's from the books by
Joanne Bertin - The
DragonLord series of books. You can find out more on them at her site, which you
can find linked
to in my profile.
Ok. So what's with this site you are supposed to be doing?
Ah yes - I keep harping on about that, don't I? Well, I'm developing a website
which is for my
business. But I'm not going very fast with it - I suppose I'm doing too much,
but that's always been
by way. It will be located at www.lazerfx.co.uk, and will contain lots of stuff -
advertisements for my services; the usual stuff in other words. I hope to make
it the kind of site
you'll want to come back to, but I'm not 100% sure just how well it will work.
Right, so when will I be able to see it?
Well, I've currently penned a release date in as mid-December, but I've just
solved quite a few bugs
I thought were going to take me longer, so it might be sooner - watch out for an
when it comes ;)
But I don't give a damn about your stupid website!
Well, excuse me. I happen to be a web developer *Cue shouts of, "Geek! Geek!"*
Ok, yes, I'm a
geek - so what? :) But that's currently very important in my life, so it's
naturally what I want to
Do you have any girlfriends?
Nope. No plans for that at the moment - I know myself, and I'm not half as
mature as I'd need to be
to sustain a relationship at the moment.
Do you live on your own?
Nope - still with parents. To tell you the truth, it's a damn sight easier.
After all, you get your food,
you get most things paid for you (rent, rates, poll tax) and you just have to
put in nominal effort
(cleaning up every now and again, occasionally helping out in the garden, that
sort of thing). It's a
very good system that I plan to milk out fo... Erm.. I mean, I plan to maintain
for as long as
Are you a Nerd?
No. I state that quite categorically - I'm not a Nerd. I am a Geek - there is a
difference. I also like to
think I'm a Hacker (The original term, someone who's good with computers, and
can fiddle with
them and find solutions to problems). A Nerd is a lifeless dweeb - I have a
life. I go to the pub with
friends, over to friends houses to watch a video and have a laugh, and friends
come over my place.
We go to movies. I don't spend my life behind a computer screen. I've never
spotted trains, or
aeroplanes or anything like that.
Ok, what's your favourites?
Hmmm... I'll just give you a quick list, then we'll draw this to a close:
Impreza - I've been in a rally version of one of these (As I like saying
;) and they really, really prod
Colour: That would have to be something soft and pastel - perhaps a
Song: That changes all the time, but top candidates would have to be
- Carl Orf, Toccata and Fugue in D Minor - Bach, House of the Rising Sun -
(Their cover version), Full Throttle Theme / Legacy - Gone Jackals (That song
Anything by The Who or Pink Floyd, The Gladiator Theme Tune, Anything by John
Williams... As you can see, quite a few :)
Well, that's me - anything else you want to know, I'm always there. And with 15
years of computing
experience behind me, I'm happy to help with your computer problems.
