First:
Congratulations to tempest_chan
for posting the 10,000th comment in my LiveJournal!


Second, belated welcomes to over 30 new friends who added me in the last 6 months or so!

September: dorukai, prophetum, altamira16
August: ladie_bug, demonqueen125, flemco, caelum, det_n
July: nikolasco, sylunethesigher, orangerful, nanaki117, serryce
June: de_profundiis, doomedtoreality, smugglers_prize, prahlad, adele87, futuretvwriter, prezzey, mom_counsel, thaleias_spirit

If you see this, I'd appreciate it if you'd post a brief introduction just so people know who you are.
Besides students past and present (nanaki117, prahlad, thekuffs, tmehlinger), filipinangel, and penfold_x, I've never met any of you, so I look forward to getting to know you through this journal. Or, in the case of taiji_jian and dsthenes, learning more about you that I can use to blackmail you later. ;-)

Acksherly, the rate is approximately constant
196 in 2.5 years and 30 in the last 6 months. This isn't even the fastest year (as I haven't joined any new RP groups or posted quite as much as before in infojunkies or the Tolkien communities, whence some of my LJ acquaintances come).

So you're saying you've always been a friend whore?

Connectivity seekers
We prefer the term "connectivity-seeking".

Either! Both!
Take your pick, it's a free country! :-D

(I meant here, but in your own LJ holds more friend-whoringreferral opportunities. ;-))

hmm, what to say ...
Wow, June? It feels like I've know you so much longer!!

I came across your journal by accident.
and decided I liked what I read and stuck around.

Why? well you have to be one of the most intelligent people I've ever known, you are always interested in other peoples opinions and you have this thirst for more knowledge which you love to share, and best of all you are not one bit arrogant about it all (unlike some people I know). I know I use to feel very overwhelmed when I read some of your posts at the start but now well I learn something new every day.,

Aside from all that you have a wicked sense of humour (or humor as its spelt in the states) and a lovely persona !! (I'm sure others will agree).

ooh and I learned a word/spelling from you -
teuncy and choklit !!

I'm Chris, a videogame designer from Sydney.

Most of my posts are about cooking though, I suspect :)

Hi, Chris!
Nice to meet you.

One of our friends, yodge, is a recent Singaporean exportexpat to Sydney.

Is that Usagi Yojimbo in your icon?

Re: Hi, Chris!
Ahhha! Why yes, it is :)

I'm impressed, I've got some Usagi fans in my friends list, but you're the only one to recognise him so far . . .

Usagi Yojimbo, Space Usagi, and Massforge
Thanks!

I recognized him partly because Space Usagi is a temporary cover icon and mascot for the massforge project. The animation we're creating will feature a warrior race of furry hominid rodents that we are tentatively calling "samurai space rabbits". These were formerly "Jedi rabbits" or, in the earliest incarnation, "technosamurai cyberbunnies".

Re: Usagi Yojimbo, Space Usagi, and Massforge
Hehe, sounds like fun!

Space Usagi is excellent, too. Not as good as normal usagi IMO, but still better than most comics out there . . .

Welcome, Erin!
CS and English, eh?
Very interesting!
I hadn't heard of that a lot (in fact, my undergrad academic advisor, Steve Salzberg, was the only such person I knew) until I got an LJ.

deire is a CS major and once took a degree in English.
You and she are probably not the only ones on my friends list in this category, either!

Hallöle,

my name is det_n and I'm a student of computational linguistics here in Germany. I can't remember how I found your journal, either. Probably over some community we both happen to be members of, I suppose. Anyway, your journal is quite interesting. And thanks for adding back.

Many welcomes!
Probably so. I see you've joined my Machine Translation group, comptranslation. What are you working on in CL?

Hello! I'm coming a bit late to this, but I've been away at a course at the SEI in Pittsburgh (CMU) and am just now getting caught up with everything I left behind...

Um...I found you through the AI community, which was one point of interest. I did my undergrad in CS and worked with one of my professors for 3 semesters straight on some independent AI projects. Another thing that interested me was that you went to JHU and I've just gotten accepted to their masters program for CS, which I will start in the spring.

I work as an apps developer (hate it) but am getting involved in more process improvement and project management activities (much better). I am also a student pilot, working on getting my private license.

And that is more than enough to keep me busy...guess I am not that interesting...I'm afraid my LJ is even less so. But I do enjoy seeing your posts on my flist - always something new and different =)
