Hey everyone! I used to frequent this forum a long time ago, around 2008-2009. Long story short, I found myself missing random musings and having friends online - so I'm coming back.
I've recently become something of a podcast so I'm all ears for tips in that department

I suppose if you're a podcast you probably want to get some sponsorship deals. Have you tried calling Casper?

I know we're not required to post here anymore, but figured I would since I've already clicked this far into it.

I'm Jonathan. I'm a software engineer. Trying to jump-start my own business, so I have a political site, crypto site, blog, and website for my advertising solution. I host a meetup in NYC and read way too many webtoons / webcomics / manga / etc.

I forgot what else we are supposed to include here, but don't want to go through the effort of opening this in another tab so I'll just end it here.

Hey folks! I'm a long time member and I recall I've introduced myself in here at least twice before, but I've been away for a while, some things in my life changed during that time, and I just caught up with the last page of this thread. So I thought another introduction wouldn't hurt.

Actually, I don't know where to begin. Maybe I should go backwards in time until I feel it isn't relevant anymore.

Two months ago, I joined a go club. Go is my favourite board game. Perhaps my favourite game of all.

About half a year ago, my partner and I got two cats, brother and sister. They are ten months old as of today. They are cute, playful and fluffy. My avatar depicts neither of them, I've had that one for ages.

Two and a half years ago, I graduated in cognitive artificial intelligence. I think the world needs a strong general AI that can complement us humans. Actually I'd like to get my hands on AI some time.

Four years ago, I got a job as a scientific programmer at Utrecht University. Programming has been my hobby since 2002. I'm still enjoying both the job and the hobby.

Yeah, I think that will do for now.

So I'm still catching up with all the unread posts. I'm mostly very selective, but there are a few threads, including this one, which I don't want to miss a single reply of. Coding Fleeting Thoughts is another one. I still have ten pages to go, so it'll take a while before I'll resume posting in there.

Happy to be here again!

Thanks. I do the same, which is sometimes difficult when people change theirs.

So I see I should have posted here before making a funny (bad, actually) joke in guess the next poster.

This place is really gargantuanly huge; I'm, running away from somewhere else where my ability to irritate a small group of people is proving unhelpful. I'm sure I'll be able to get lost in the crowd.

Well, I hope.

Anyway, I'll potter off and lurk somewhere, and with any luck you won't find me too itchy.

Nah, I think it was an amusing idea.
Plus it seems to be the intro thread is no longer enforced or at least I didn't get busted for it yet :twisted:

I heard there are otters behind it. But since otters have feathers now they seem less scary.

Wait, I think I'm mixing something up. Let me go check what is really behind that door ...

Hey, I'm Volleo, and I'm really only posting here because I'm not a verified user yet. I'm really addicted to Threes! (however, I am not affiliated with Threes! at all).

I registered to post on the comic thread for "Digits". Now I'm more interested in starting a new "My number is bigger!" forum game, but I probably won't until I find enough places to post that I have five posts (or however one becomes "verified" in the sense that they don't need approval from a moderator to post; forum games apparently don't count).

Also, I play a lot of Guitar Hero and Rock Band games, and can reasonably play on all instruments (except Pro Guitar and Keys) on Expert or the Brutal mode new to Rock Band 4.
