Forum Topic of the Week ~ ?

~ 14 May 2004 ~

This week’s hot forum topic is…?

…is up to you to decide.

I’ll be in New Orleans for the first half of next week on business. Therefore, to keep conversation engaged while I’m away, it’s your turn to nominate a forum topic. Or the turn “touches you” as they say in Spanish. Except they say it in Spanish.

Tell us about the whine or the whacked (thanks, Angie). Tell us about forums we’ve never heard of. Or tell us about original forum member sigs you’ve come across, like “The box said use Windows XP or better, so I used a Mac.”

Give us your 2¢, and we promise not to spend it all in one place.

I simply must recommend the forums at I’ve learned piles about electronics and met some great people there as well. The growth in that community astounds me - things have exploded lately as many people look to AudioKarma to find the value of their gear before they sell it on eBay. Subsequently, many get hooked on the mature and intelligent discussions held there. Not really computer related, I know, but it’s a great example of what a web community can be.

What is your favourite colour?

Well I have always liked red. It’s warm, and filled with energy, yet red has a villainous side. More specifically PMS 484, a.k.a 0% C, 95% Y, 100% M, and 29% K.

By the way, Cameron, would you mind changing the comments to be right aligned. Ragged center alignment is kinda hard to read. Thanks and have a good weekend.

Guess you’re asking the wrong questions, eh Cameron? Try banishing a font, or asking about Sweden or FTP clients! ;)

One of my favorite sig lines I’ve seen, and I’m not even a nerd:

There are 10 kinds of people in this world, those that understand binary numbers, and those that don’t.

Okay, a little bit of a nerd…

Hey, my *last* name is Cameron! Think we’re related?

There are 10 kinds of people in this world, those that understand binary numbers, and those that don’t.

Haha! That one has always made me laugh…

Oh, and for a forum to visit, go check out The Sonic Foundation Message Board. It’s crazy and bloody good fun in there.
