Who are you, who who, who who? (I really wanna know)

Post by WedNESday » Sat Mar 29, 2008 4:14 pm

You know, we make so many posts and help each other out all of the time, but we know so little about each other. I am interested in knowing the following things.

[Identity Theft]

1. Who are you?
2. Where are you from/Where do you live?
3. Why are you into NES emulation?
4. What do you do in your spare time?
5. Age. Pets. Marital Status. Children?
6. Any funny stories? (hopefully NES related)
7. Do you have a job/Are you a student? If so what?
8. What does the future hold for you?

I don't know, most people do not feel like sharing this kind of information on the WEB... Even you didn't! =) I mean, if you want to encourage people to share, you should be the first one, no?

Yeah, I think many people get into hobbies as a diversion from normal life, a place to get away from being a particular person with well-worn superficial features, to simply someone with abilities in said hobby, and judged only on those.

Although I can understand what blargg said, personally, yeah, I'd be more worried about what peppers said. I wouldn't mind the NESDEV people knowing more about me, but this is the fucking WEB, where not everyone is nice, and might end up using what you write against you.

I really enjoy that the internet makes it possible for us to find people with the same interests. There's no way I'd be into NESDEV at all if it wasn't for this place, and emulation in general, simply because no one I meet in my everyday life would ever show the same interest, I'm pretty sure of that. So I'll give the internet that, but it is indeed a pretty nasty place to give out information about yourself.

4. Emulation, Gym, Cinema/Theatre, FPS + RPG PC games
5. None. 25. Single. Where do babies come from?
6. My NES console once electrocuted me into a coma... :!:
7. I work in a supermarket.
8. Unless I quit #7, not much. :lol:

P.S. Religious stance: Atheist.

Wow... you better move on to other consoles soon, because they're releasing new ones all the time, and it sems like you are still mostly stuck with the NES! :wink:

What the hell, this question again?

Not really, we know your name from your web page... =)

OK then, I'll give this a shot:

1. Pretty broad question, but my name is Thiago (equivalent to "James" in english).
2. I was born and live in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Just for the record, I hate soccer, carnaval and samba in general. I was born in the wrong country.
3. I got into gaming when the 16-bit consoles were "the shit". Only when emulation kicked in (1997~1998) I fell in love with the simplicity of the NES, and got very interested on how it worked.
4. NES programming, watch anime/read manga, draw (manga), ActionScript 3.0 programming... I'm sure I'm leaving lots of other things out.
5. 26, 3 cats, engaged, no kids.
6. None that I can remember...
7. Finishing Computer Science course at the university, working as WEB developer.
8. Will probably keep working with WEB development, although that brings me no joy.
Religious stance: Agnostic.

No I'm not. I dont't like to be labeled, I just happen to like (a lot of) japanese stuff. The word "otaku" is a pretty hardcore term that doesn't suit me. :wink:

Isn't anybody else going to say anything about this kind of behaviour? Now if I had written that...

Thank you tokumaru for your serious post.
