    Man, I would HAVE to be desperate to have to resort to some of you ;)

    However, I am of the opinion that one can never have too many friends - especially friends who are interested in computing. There's not enough people who are. At least, people who are and know a little about what they are talking about, anyway.

    99% of people on this site are cool and I would invite them into my home.

    Let's add an obscure location with accented characters in it.. :eek:

    I live in a village called Ääsmäe, near our very own capital Tallinn (quiz point - Tallinn is the capital of Estonia (another quiz point - Estonia is located in Europe))

    If anyone happens to have some business in this desolate corner of the world then they are welcome to let me know and perhaps get the chance to see my basement and chains ;)

    I suppose the geographically closest people to me are Mic and Per. I think Mic actually has been to Estonia, but I was young and dumb then - we didn't hook up :mad:

    I live in Tampa, Florida. That's about an hour from Kissimmee. "Where's that?", you say. Kissimmee is where Walt Disney World is located. Shhh, most tourists think they're in Orlando!

    Hey mate, you know you are always more than welcome to visit if you are ever in the area. Just don't go into my kitchen! ;)

    LOL! VERY TRUE! I didn't realize that alot of you were European. It's no wonder why during my time PST (Pacific Standard Time) like only 4-5 users are on. All activity must go on at night then.

    Anyways, I live in Los Angeles, California. I frequently visit Las Vegas if you're ever around there.

    Re: phant must be a gourmet

    Admittedly, I have only just read the last couple of posts, but I have absolutely no idea what you are talking about.

    If you are going to talk about me, please speak english.
