Andrei in the office

The mark of a conversation going well

I've been chatting with some new people in the past two weeks.

One of the more stunning people I've been chatting with is 1_aga Upon mutual griping about the innate stupidity that exists in much of humanity, she asked if I'd seen Ghost World.

I told her I hadn't and she invited me over to come see it. The following exchange occurred:

1_aga:see here I am we haven't even met yet and I'm already assuming we'll be friends.
just because we share genocidal tendencies

And to this I simply say, "heh"

Who the heck are you? How should I know?

Meme lineage:

mrlogic < vixyish < corivax < dakegra < ciciaye < rudestlink < [no specific attribution]

Post anonymously, giving me three clues as to who you are. I will try to guess. (I won't check IP addresses.)

I'll add my guesses to your comments, so you'll have to check back now and then.
If I guess wrong, give me another clue. I'll continue until I get it or I give up in despair.

I'll probably be hopelessly bad at this...if I don't know you half-decently, it might be good if your clues are either researchable, or if they offer me some smidgen of hope of coming up with the right answer. But if you're too obvious, it won't be any fun.

On the other hand, post anything you like. What the heck.

7. Stubborn and unchanging - Got it in one.

More as it unfolds :)

Well, it's been 35.5 days since my server has been power cycled.
I love Mac OS X. Now let's see how 10.3.4 server does.
