  1. I just had a nice idea to start a thread where, if people wanted, they could post a little more about where they live - well, just a short paragraph or two - if they think that they would like to get in touch and maybe even actually meet in real life other TechSpot members.

    If the thread takes off then I will keep it, if its a flop I shall unstick it and it can get buried over time.

    I know that the user information at the left hand side next to the avatar gives a location, but this thread is really more for the begins of arranging to meet someone, etc. And not a lot of people bother to enter where they really live because there's not been a point so far.

    I like in Glasgow, in Scotland. I guess I could travel to somewhere else in Scotland or even England to meet you, if you were especially cool. There's only a few especially cool people, I guess ;)

    If you live in Scotland then please let me know via PM or something. That is, if you are wanting to meet.

    Don't worry, I am not a serial killer and have no shortage of friends. However, one can never have too many friends.

    Let's see, I live in England in a small town called Pocklington near a medium sized city called York. Note that I was born in Phoenix, Arizona and therefore am American.

    As Phant put it, I am not lacking friends, nor am I going to lock you in my basement for thirty years ;) .

    If you do want to meet, I don't see why anyone would want to meet a 14 year old little kid, but if you do; send me a PM :) .

    Like it says on the left I live in Rolla, Missouri. Just started graduate school here. If you are ever passing through Missouri, Rolla is right along I-44, and not too far from I-70, and those are pretty much the biggest roads in the state. I guess if you are passing through north to south like on US-63, well that goes through Rolla too, so no excuse not to let me know :).

    I live on the edge of a small town called Opp, in Alabama. US hwy 84 runs by about a mile from here, and US 331 is about 3 miles from here. Opp is located about 25 miles from the Florida/Alabama line. If you travel to Florida much, you've probably been through here and not even known it was a town.

    I live in South Bend, Indiana, about a 5 minute drive from the University of Notre Dame. If any of you are ever out this far north then gimme a yell! BTW - I will pass back through Rolla SN and I will stop by there. I will likely come through with my wife though so you can't get me in trouble if I do - I also pass through St. Louis sometimes so I may be able to visit another buddy there... hint hint.

    I live in Bloomington, Indiana. About 5 minz from IU. I know no one would want to meet me in person, but if you could/do, dont, because my parents would probbly ban me from the internet if they found out I told someone where I live (even if its not my address). Not to mention kill me :dead:

    You are probably the closest to me, then. You ever get out near Glasgow??

    The last time I was in Glasgow was in 1987 when I spent 10 weeks in a work placement, while doing my degree in Edinburgh. It was pretty scary as far as I can remember, though I suspect that things have probably changed a lot since then.

    How old are you? Where do you work? Do you drink in Edinburgh?

    I am 27, work in Paisley. Drink - sure, anywhere.

    1. Older than yourself (hard to believe, but its true). :D
    2. Unemployed Software Developer (long story, but currently reskilling in MCSD for .NET). :rolleyes:
    3. I avoid alcohol (except on the odd occassion), and generally have a purpose when I do go out (e.g. cinema, shopping, eating out with friends, concert, etc.). :confused:

    I rarely go out to drink, or crawl my way through several pubs/night clubs. I guess I'm past that stage and too sensible (or boring) to get any pleasure out of it (I'd sooner spend my money on new games/hardware). :cool:

    Just like yourself, I am not a serial killer, or phsycopath of any kind - so just let me know your address, and I'll come round and prove it to you. ;)

    PS: Hope that answered your questions.

    I live in North Carolina right outside of Charlotte, in Shelby. I lived in Tampa Bay Florida for a year in college. I wouldn't mind going back. I'm not that fond of NC. Actually I think I'd like to live in Australia, hehe.

    I will keep all of this in mind if I am in the area again. PM me your phone number if you like, I may call some time to see how you are, if its only in Edinburgh.....

    Again, if you PM me your phone number (AND REAL NAME - I don't want to be calling up and asking if Lord Zykon is in, or anything ;) !! ) - then I might call you one time, or if I am near you geographically I could say hello.

    Mr. Garibali and I met in real life a while ago, and even although all we did was have a few beers and talk and then the next day he visited my home for about 1.5 hour, it was still a good laugh and surely lots of people here have a lot of common interests.

    Don't post your real name here if you don't want to, and CERTAINLY DON'T POST YOUR REAL PHONE NUMBER! Just advertise a little here and if someone is interested they should PM that person.

    Man, already its like a dating agency. How sad are we!
