    Discovered it through:
    ZuePhok, in 2003

    Most frequently visit: (i.e. BOG, which forum, news, reviews, etc)
    Hmm.. I'm not sure :) I just hit 'New Posts' each time and see what interesting topics are there

    Fondest memory/Best thing about ARP?
    None yet, I guess..

    Person you would most like to meet from the community? (whom you've not met!)
    Hmm... *scratches head* heeeeh. I can be a little shy/nervous in meeting new people sometimes and my first meeting with people can get a little... awkward :) The only way I'll be a little less tongue tied/nervous is if someone else I know is accompanying me

    One thing you'd like to see on the site:
    Penguin favicon. They're cute :)


    What is the first thing you think of when you wake up in the morning?
    Pray (wow, I sound so.. pious.)

    If I had the time, I would...
    Spend more time with loved ones.

    The sound of water

    aKho: must leave tap on at night.. :mrgreen:

    Lifetime goals?
    The ultimate goal is...... death (like it or not, death will be your final goal)

    aKho: your looking forward to it? :? don't pack your bags yet la, sure live until age 206.

    Who are you going to interview?
    Hmm, has wilfred been interrogated in that dungeon with just a chair and a light bulb hanging from the ceiling? Or maybe I'll give Zen the chance he lost from aKho


    I notice you've got a blog. Would you care to tell us a bit about it?
    Yup, I started having a weblog since 1998. It started out as a site for me to keep my poetry and creative writings, then few months later I started incorporating an online diary (as it was called then). In 2003, I finally bought my own domain and hosting plan

    Any Boyfriend/s?
    "Boyfriend/s" ? The way you put it implies that I might be a playgirl with multiple boyfriends..... *insulted*

    aKho: aiyo, sorry la. but i meant got bf or not. if not, then close "boy" friends or not. those that maybe grew up with you. i have a best friend, we grew up together. wish i had a close "girl" friend too. then i might not be as shy with girls ba...

    Any pets?
    Two adorable rabbits, Sprinkles and Proudfoot

    Why djspinnet? How did you come about it?
    Someone suggested this nick to me ages ago and I've been using it ever since

    Could you tell us a bit about your family?
    Why do you want to know?

    aKho: how many brothers or sisters? where are they now?

    Your a certified Linux nut. True or False?
    Linux nut? Hahaha...

    Why Linux, not Windows?
    Because XP was BSOD-ing on me almost daily, and if it doesn't, it just hangs or keeps crashing or randomly decides that it doesn't want to boot up and I got frustrated

    Would you try out for Fear Factor?
    No! *cowers*

    What's your current favourite TV show?
    Believe it or not... I don't watch TV. Because I don't have a TV!

    What's the last game you played? PC/PS2/XBOX etc..
    I stopped playing games for years now..

    Any embarassing experiences?
    When I was a kid, plenty. Unfortunately my memory's limited :)

    If there is one thing you can change in the past, what would it be?
    Nothing. Looking back, everything that has happened helped shape me into who I am today.

    Where do you picture yourself 3 to 5 years from now?
    On a mountain staring into the sunset

    aKho: thanks Jinny for the interview. right, before anyone else ask...please grace ARP with a picture of thy lovely self. :)

    Great interview, aKho! :thumb:

    Yeah, jet isn't the only one with the mistaken-gender problems. aKho did it at least 3 times, remember? :wicked: :haha:

    But Jet, why'd you ask if she was on a diet? :eh: :haha:

    Hey djspinnet! :wave: No TV? Respect! :thumb:
    Hmm, grilling time... :twisted:
    1. Why djspinnet? I know your friend suggested it, by why djspinnet exactly? :think:
    2. How do you know ZuePhok? :wicked:

    Lastly, pics! :twisted: :haha:
  12. djspinnet

    djspinnet Newbie

    wow. I'm amazed at the amount of people who've mis-gendered me here.

    Soo... let's see..

    Papercut: Because I don't have one? Besides, there's nothing on TV anyway

    peaz: Since I was young, when I used to play with my dad's old cameras.. I took it from there, my dad taught me the technicalities, my friend taught me metering, and I took it from there

    hyper_raider: Jazz artistes.. I guess it's Ken Navarro, Dave Koz, Diana Krall..

    Jet: No I am not on diet. I'm skinny enough. In fact I'm desperately trying to put on weight (but failing each time) - high metabolic rate
