    I guess I oughta...

    The hardest bit was trying to think of a suitably embarrassing moment. You bet there are going to be people who don't believe that one.
    • Name: I'm Vernoring. Can I say "Vernoring" in public? It's disappointing that Google doesn't recognise the word. I believe Greg Bear coined it (in Moving Mars), alluding to Vernor Vinge and his novel True Names.
    • Age: Old, but not as old as I sometimes make out (palaeontologists have not written papers about me).
    • Pets types/names: Four cats, Felicity, Miss Paddlefoot, Tiger Lilly, and Fluffy; an Alexandrine parrot, Worser. No, I didn't name them (except one of the late canaries, DJ - successor to AJ, BJ and CJ).
    • Meaning behind your username: Let's say it's this; but I actually picked it because of its originality.
    I don't have "favourites" (even if I do call them bookmarks) - I have A-lists that I review occasionally
    • Favorite quote: No matter how great your triumphs or how tragic your defeats, approximately one billion Chinese couldn't care less.
    • Most valued posession: My sentience.
    • Fav type of music: Classical, Smart Techno, 70s British rock... Yeah, I've got Gorillaz playing at the moment.
    • Favorite movie: Bladerunner (dircut - haven't seen the Final Cut yet), Contact, The Dish
    • Favorite computer game: Hunt the Wumpus
    • Favorite computer program: *me shrugs*
    • Did OJ do it? Haven't got to OJ yet (see above).
    • Type of car you drive: Gold 2003 Nissan 350Z
    • Type of car you really drive (the truth please): Red 1990 Nissan Pulsar GTi (my petrolhead brother has the Z. It's his show car.)
    • Fav alchoholic beverage: At the moment, butterscotch schnapps. Maybe the odd bourbon and cola. TBH, though, I tend to favour that other psychoactive substance, the ol' 1,3,7-trimethylpurine-2,6-dione.
    • Next vacation: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! No, I really don't take time off as often as I should.
    • If you have any superpower in the world, what would it be, and why? Persuasion; so that when I get pulled over by a traffic cop for speeding I can convince him that "these aren't the droids you're looking for".
    • Unique talent: I can do a pretty mean Freddie Mercury impression. At least when I'm drunk. Oh, and I can cross my fingers. All eight of them. Simultaneously.
    • Most embarrassing moment: I do recall a streaking incident at school once during lunchtime. The details are mercifully forgotten but found afterwards some of the girls had hidden my clothes.
    • Write a sentence that ends with 'about 5 inches.' It had to be an American who came up with the idea for writing a sentence that ends with 'about 5 inches'.
    • Years in the industry: This one in particular? Um, six - no, TWELVE - years now (where does the time go and can I have some of it back please?). Time for a change?
    • Which platform do you use: Depends on what's available.
    • Fav PHP editor/IDE: PFE, kate, Zend Eclipse, Visual Studio
    • What's your favorite PHP function/why? make_shopping_cart(). Let 'em think I'm a miracle-worker.
    • Tips for the noob: Show that you're making an effort to learn and people will make the effort to teach.
    • Why do you volunteer your time as a moderator? You know, I ask myself that sometimes. I really do.
    • Free for all (anything you'd like to say): This forum has a 10,000 character limit on posts. So it's not that free, is it?

    Oh, much better than the studio-dictated version - it's a much better movie now that Ridley Scott gets to throw his name around.

    Oh yes, thought there was something left to do.

    I've been having a hard time finding one that's more than a few years old. Tell you what - I'll borrow a camera and do a self-portrait. You want one with the beard or without?

    Poot. Can't attach a file to a post that doesn't already have one.

    This is just a temporary one.
