Tell us about yourself... How old are you? Where are you from? What do you do (school/work)? Where do you work, if applicable? What kind of music do you like? Do you have a girl (boy?) friend?  Are you in any other clans? What are they like (if applicable)? Any friends around here (members or otherwise)? Why do you want to join? Have you read our rules?  What's your favourite tv show? Movie? Band? Country? Continent? Season?  Type of weather? Subject in school? Chemical? Food? Drink? Book? Author? Operating system? Phone company? Computer brand? Linux distribution? Sport? Sports team? Sporting event? Game? Style of game (board, rpg, card, etc.)? Bird? Animal? Pet?

starting from the top...
Hi, I'm sdfg.
 - I'm 21 years old.
 - I live in central PA.
 - I don't do, I just am. Extremely rich!
 - I used to work at a Borders chain book store
 - I like all kinds of techno - trance, breakcore, rave, etc.
 - I don't have a girlfriend at the moment
 - I am in no clans either.
 - I have no friends on this board (but i might have a few enemies i guess)
 - Join? Whoa, no thanks, not yet, I don't think I even can, I just signed up to the forums!
 - Yes, I've read the rules.
 - Favorite TV show? Probably Seinfeld.
 - Movie? Tied between these: The Matrix, Pi, just about all James Bond movies
 - Band? Nine Inch Nails!
 - Country? Teh US of A
 - Continent? Logically, North America.
 - Season? wha? it changes you know...
 - Type of Weather? Somewhat chilly, otherwise completely normal
 - Subject in school? Math
 - Chemical? HCl - It burns so clean!
 - Food? I guess, pizza. But that's everybody's favorite.
 - Drink? Coka-cola.
 - Book? 1984
 - However, my favorite author has to be Agatha Christie. Love the suspense.
 - Operating system? fbsd on one box, Arch on my main, running Windows XP SP2 Home Edition in VMWare (I develop mainly for windows)
 - Phone company? Verizon
 - Computer brand? eMachines, I guess..
 - Linux Distro? Arch all the way!
 - Sport? None. I have never played any sports, nor been a fan of one. I'm just not a very sportsy guy, I guess.
 - Sports team? n/a
 - Sporting event? Um, superbowl?
 - Game? Occasionally StarCraft, but mostly Perfect Dark 64, Duke Nukem 64, Goldeneye 64 etc on an emulator.
 - Style of game? RTS and FPS
 - Bird? ?huh?
 - Animal? I can't stand animals,
 - Pet? ESPECIALLY having one as a pet. Way too much upkeep, and I don't really see any point to it.

So what's up, x86labs.org?
dey see me trollin'

Welcome to the forums!

Let me get this out of the way, just like Ender did in my intro topic:


- Bird? ?huh?

Anything other than Sean Connery or Daniel Craig will warrant trolling.

He's right.  Your answer will be paramount to your acceptance here.

Nah, it doesn't mean anything at all. I use a random combonation of a, s, d, f and g for just about any username, from forums (like this) to Starcraft, to IRC. Call me dull but I can't come up with a more fitting name.

Oh, we have to get this one out of the way: who's your favorite James Bond?
I'd have to say Pierce Brosnan. Sorry guys!

GTFO.  Sean Connery will be by shortly.  I must warn you -- he's merciless.

Seriously, though, welcome.  x86 is just a group of e-friends.

I like your choice in N64 games. I loved Perfect Dark so much I beat the whole game. All golds on the shooting range, all multiplayer achievements, etc.

Of course, this was on a legitimate N64. On an emulator that'd be much harder.

Same, not to mention unlocking every cheat and beating every single player level. The later levels on the hardest difficulty were tough!

Your score.  Ender failed to evaluate your entire post, and as such missed some points.  Technically, you have [tex]-{\infty}[/tex], but since (+-)infinite can't fit into a calculator, you have 5 points.

Whats wrong with Verizon? It has decent phones, and excellent service where I'm at. Everyone here has it, which allows most calls and text messages to be free. Why does it warrant a negative infinite points?

As for the image: it's your shitty forums that don't properly transform the TeX to a descriptive alt! ;)

The image you used doesn't work in consoles, you insensitive clod!

But you're a minority. Only console users and low-bandwidth users (deadly) would complain.

Hahahaha!  :)

Do modern browsers even display the alt text any more? I can't recall seeing an image placeholder in a very long time, though that could be a product of broadband.

-[tex]{\infty}[/tex] - Phone company? Verizon

Your score.  Ender failed to evaluate your entire post, and as such missed some points.  Technically, you have [tex]-{\infty}[/tex], but since (+-)infinite can't fit into a calculator, you have 5 points.

Whats wrong with Verizon? It has decent phones, and excellent service where I'm at. Everyone here has it, which allows most calls and text messages to be free. Why does it warrant a negative infinite points?

The horrible, terrible, nasty firmware on those phones. That, and the millions of RAZRs

Yes.

Especially when the person is using a screen reader (ie, blind people).
