Longevity is a virtue. Glad to have veterans who are not only prolific posters but provide meaningful info and assistance.

Thanks Meanie.

Yes, Meanie, congratulations!
I appreciate your work very much, and I hope that I could and can give you something back.

The mug will come soon, too! rolleyes.gif

But I still don't know why you call yourself "Meanie". I'm still waiting for the day I will understand that. tongue.gif

Thanks everyone smile.gif

"Meanie^^" was my IRC nickname. I used to taunt and scare the unsuspecting L-users...

well done meanie... I didn't say anything but I too was watching the "top ten lists of posters" and trying to catch up, but you kept leaping ahead... I did wonder if you were trying to break the record, and now I know you were. Not too long before you'll be in the top two!

(for those who haven't noticed, it's on the forum home page bottom right:

p.s. you've got a long way to go before getting into 1st place.

Not trying to get to personal, but do you already have a perspective finger targeted for that ring? If so, then you do so have a life! smile.gif

when I got engaged, erm, pretty much five years ago, I went to a specialist diamond retailer, having read up on the details, and bought a "proper" certificated diamond. Lots of places will tell you that a certificate is expensive or pointless, don't believe them, it's because they're selling low grade diamonds and/or want to push you way upmarket. A smaller but good cut/quality diamond will be more impressive than a big junk rock, especially to people who know.

--edit--

oh yes, and congratulations! Are you going to stream the wedding live over the internet via your OQO smile.gif
danboid
If he sets it up right all OESF can watch Menanay say 'I do' in five types of machine code on a live web stream. Legend has it Menaie hacked together one super-hot antipodean cyborg lady friend- I should know as I've heard Meanie has me in mind for best man. 1st class flight to Sydney, 5* accomodation, Kylie.. all catered for, ain't that right ol' buddy ol' pal? laugh.gif

we're all getting invites to the wedding, right?

yeah, they don't come cheap. don't know if it's the same in Au as Uk, but I was able to get the wife's ring insured "all risks" by putting it on the house's contents insurance and it only added about US$20 per year to the cost.

Sweet! That's a nice perk for making 2000 posts! wink.gif

Seriously though, I remember when I popped the question. I almost cried afterwards. My fiancee told me the next day that she had been waiting so long, she would have been happy with a cubic zirconia. Actually, I think I'm tearing up now, just thinking about it.

my GF at the time, now wife, had been already been telling her closest friends that I was going to propose to her over valentines (even before I'd absolutely made the decision to!). She'd noticed the bottle of champagne had been acquired... snag is on the day, she tucked into the fine chocolates I bought to go with the question. She'd have been humiliated if I'd paniced (sp?) and not proposed!

not really, honestly, I was just curious to see whether adf would pick up speed, but your rate of posting is a bit higher, but "lardman" is much higher so you'll never catch him and be doomed to stay in 2nd place!

Hearing you say that and the word "evil" in the same paragraph reminds me of ev1l and others who were on here when I first came to OESF but are now gone. sad.gif
adf
Yeah, I thought of that too.

It took a long time for the Z to get decent (mature) 3rd party roms (sharp/cacko aside). I guess interesting things were happening elswhere, and sharp wasn't really upgrading the hardware the way they should have. I don't recall Evil1's Z going up for sale, though.


we barely hear from Mickeyl Koen or Lardman anymore either (or SashZ). I hope the OZ guys are tinkering with the Neo and will come back with something interesting

Meanie, you're 'da Man on this forum!!!

Congrats on going over 2K, all the wonderful things you do for Linux dopes like me and your engagment!

Take it from this ol' married guy....

It's not that married men live longer (than single guys...)

It just seems longer!!!

I've been married nearly 5 years now, and we have a 3y2m old boy; it's hard to remember what life was like before we had a kid, and my single days when I could play with toys till the early hours and have a lie-in are a misty dream. I used to have a nice 2-seater sports car, now I have a cheap SUV. Meanie, enjoy your single days, get a sports car, big screen TV, etc etc while you can!!
speculatrix
well, now meanie's gone and got married, it's allowed me to get ahead! And it won't be too long before 'adf' also takes over and gains 3rd place.

Sad to say meanie, your crown as number 2 lasted one year!

I think lardman's crown as number 1 will take a bit longer to beat, as it's taken me 3y9m to get to 2800 posts and lardman's way ahead with 4514 in 4y5m!

I hope nothing happened to him after he got hitched.....very strange how he just dropped of the Z radar screen....

yeah, it's a shame that Meanie hasn't even had time to say hello. Antikz/Tyrannozaurus hasn't visited for a while either.

I sent Antikx a PM a while back just to make sure he wasn't dead or anything, and he hasn't responded (so I guess that's not ruled out... sad.gif)

according to his public profile he's not been on in nearly three years.

I got busy with RL things, the developper (zautrix) for the app I was helping on (kdepim suite) disappeared from the face of the earth (althought he's now posted a new kdepimpi a week ago apparently), and I realized gcalendar works from everywhere.
I'll buy an iphone 2.0 or something, because it works for the intended purpose.

greetings to your moms.

Nice to see you on the forums, even occasionally! Good luck with the iphone2 or whatever you use--though I hope it willbe something open smile.gif
