Oh right. I hadn't posted here up until now because I tend to skim the topics and don't usually post much (I guess I'm a forum abuser or something like that).

But since you asked, I'm gothic_type from AO. TBH I hate the name gothic_type, but since I registered with that, I just kept using the account. The main reason I hate the name is that most people think it has something to do with goths :P

Anyhow, I tend to only use programming sections and I'm also really forgetful, so every so often I forget to check a site for a couple of months. I'll probably start using this forum though over AO because I never felt AO was the same after JupM took over.

It used to have this community-run feel to it, and it also used to be unafraid to tackle pretty much any topic; nowadays as soon as someone mentions the word "hacker", even in an otherwise interesting post, some arsehole complains and ends up getting people who might have genuine talents banned and embittered.

And for the record, I've never been banned, nor am I embittered :)

Anyhow, rant over and hi I guess.

I knew it wasn't the same when they took down the newletters. And this was long before that dumbass site was sold. I don't really think JupM was much of a problem. They've pretty much given people everything their users have asked for... no matter how moronic the request was.

I've always said there is a big difference between people who like computers... and people who call themselves and others "hackers". And I've always liked talking about computers without the h-word poping up myself. But yeah... for the most part people should have just shut up, answered the redundant questions, and be done with it. Atleast then it would have still remained a successfull usegroup heh.

It used to have this community-run feel to it
Well, don't get too cozy here, your membership application needs to first be approved by the membership and asset management sub-committees respectively. Once approval is gained there through a simple majority, it goes on to the general sub-committee who need to provide a two-thirds approval to finally pass it on to the primary general committee for another simple majority.

This whole process takes 6-9 months and requires the one-time, non-refundable fee of $399.

Welcome to TAZ, where our greatest asset is the close community feel.

cheers,

Hey AC welcome,

And just because you're the Head of the IGG, you think you can post that without the majority's permission? :lol: :P

Thanks to whoever deleted my other post... Sorry about that - they really needed to upgrade the servers over here. Too many users online = too many SQL queries by WebMarshal for the SQL server to handle :roll:

Ack, I've been really busy... Thursday's my worst day - and I've still got French and Biology homework left (and Kung Fu).. I've already done my English and Physics homework, and been to an extra-curricular Spanish lesson.

Thursday's not a day I can boast about because of the exorbitant amount of free time :P

I'm getting closer every day (to finding a pic)

No worries mate. Just ribbing ya!

I'm guessing that the school you go to doesn't require you to be able to hot wire a car in order to pass shop class. I'm thinking English boarding schools and Detroit public schools are a little different.

Hang in there buddy.
