A few Saturdays ago in the early part of August 2003, I was getting ready to change my sig line again when I noticed I had two new fans, zedmelon and RobertB-DC. I think I picked them up after my comment about roller coasters (which must have been hard to moderate because I had thrown a bit of humor in with what was really intended to be informative.) Today, since it's a slow morning, I have decided to look into my fans and found a few more, dracocat, MonTemplar and turg. I think I picked up turg because of zedmelon's journal and the other two because of my bits joke. (Oh the grammar errors in that one. I was in such a hurry to get the joke up where it could be seen.)
As for the rest of my fans, lets see who the are. Since I have typically made fans my friends, we'll take a look at friends after this.
Cap'n Canuck (622106) - One of the first few fans I remember getting. Not sure why but I am going to go out on a limb and say maybe it has some thing to do with this story on slow day.
cyt0plas (629631) - Hmm not really sure with this one, but he's been here for a little while.
dracocat (554744) - Picked up this month, see above.
forged (206127) - I believe forged added me after I added him to my fiend list.
GMontag (42283) - I believe GMontag also added me after I added him to my fiend list.
Kredal (566494) - Another one that I am not too sure when he showed up. We both posted in this article although this is just merely coincidence.
mabster (470642) - Added as friend when he posted in my first journal entry.
MonTemplar (174120) - Picked up this month, see above.
RobertB-DC (622190) - Picked up this month, see above.
thomkt (59664) - The one person I know from real life and the one who got me to reading slashdot in the first place. We were buddies in the Marine Corps and still keep in touch.
turg (19864) - Picked up this month, see above.
VladTheBad (178747) - I remember seeing Vlad show up as fan and wondering if I should make him a friend. There weren't many comments at the time, no bio, no journal. Alas I decided to add him/her as a kind geasture.
zedmelon (583487) - Pick up this month, see above.
Here are my friends who have not made me their friends. These are people who have impressed me in some way. Lets see if I can recall why...
Atzanteol (99067) - Not sure where this one came from.
Galvatron (115029) - We both had posted in this article, but I don't think that is why I made Galvatron a friend. Maybe it was because his username has something to do with transformers.
Moofie (22272) - I remember Moofie claiming to be a rocket scientist. I thought that was pretty cool.
neuroticia (557805) - I seriously must have added this person because she is a girl. I look at her journal entry in June and it seems she has decided to leave. I also look at her fan list and it is huge. I must wonder to myself, should I bother keeping myself on her fan list. Hmm....
nigelc (528573) - I see Nigel posted an intellegent reply to my post about Lucas Arts. Maybe I added him for that reason. Or maybe it was this funny post. Can't think of any other reason why I might have.
PIPBoy3000 (619296) - Cool user name. Gotta love Fallout. I think I was playing Fallout Tactics when I saw a post from this guy. He hasn't posted that much, no BIO, no journal entries its got to be the name
Radio Shack Robot (640478) - Must have been something funny this guy said.
SlashChick (544252) - Another person added most likely on the sole reason that this is a girl. FortKnox says that he met SlashChick in person.
softsign (120322) - I added softsign because he reads Wheel of Time. He was even kind enough to give me a spoiler on the most recent book.
syukton (256348) - I have no Idea why I added this person as a friend. Since he hasn't returned the favor, maybe I'll consider removing him.
Xavier000 (449480) - Another person I have no idea why I added them as a friend. They haven't posted a lot and they haven't posted lately. This is their best post so far.
Alas I have some freaks too. I have had the same three for a while and we'll look into these later. I'll just list them, for the record.
Incognito Dastard (657140)
SANTA'S LIST (655608)
If you made it this far, you might still be wondering what I was going to change my sig line too.
