i read reviews on the old thinkpad.com. i read lr's comments and thought they were very insightful. i signed up for ttf via a link in his signature. that was in the summer before i went to university. i've since graduated and have a full-time job in the industry i wanted to work in way back then!

I thought we already had this thread. bsdnexus or #bsd. I forget which came first. but that's how I knew lucas, dp, and gatzby.

The #bsd crew, basically. (lucas, gatz, me, asemi, bluet, karpet, and andre ... I think that's all.)

I needed a forum for a UT team i was in. This worked just fine.

I think i still have a mirror of it

Hey andre, does that mean you got here the same way as asemi etc?

Nestor's story is my favorite so far <3

Larz got me here after a month or so of coaxing (long enough ago that I was still refusing to call him larz). I didn't want to because I knew I would live in only 4 or 5 of ttf's 7 genre groupings. My screen name was born because I was still unconvinced upon finally signing up that I would be accepted here. I think I'm still unconvinced, but fond of you all so can't stay away for long.

if I get my old job back I'll be in #bsd probably every day. cross your fingers for me, andre.

Étrangère, at the time lucas hosted #bsd. I think I got invited via a P.M. in bsdforums.org but it was not lucas who sent it, it was probably wintellect. It was so long ago though... my mind could be making this up :P

Anyway, at the time there was no ttf yet and we were invited when lucas created it. I wear my user_id=6 proudly :)

asemi, keeping them crossed!

welcome indeed! are you a sophisticated bot? is this why you're asking about human conceptions of an afterlife?

Perhaps it is part of our simulation overlords to test our reaction?

Thanks! I hope I am a sophisticated bot!
