I have met Tom Davidson, Jeni, Vana, Lime, & Bob Scopatz.

I can also verify that I received a check from someone claiming to be Celia, although I haven't met her in person.

Edit: Bob and I can cross-check the Midwestern clump with the Florida clump, and Tom and CT cross check the midwesterners with WenchCon. But did anyone from any of those three groups cross-check with EnderCon, Utah, Oregon or California? It seems like we might have two distinct groups that don't link together.

Edit again: Bob to Icarus to GreNMECon to EnderCon! Yay!

I do not exist. These posts are actually the product of a system using 75 SiAs X-Operation Neural parallel processors to simulate the inner workings of an electrical engineer.

But . . . I've never met anybody on the forum, and I don't think I will any time soon. That's what being 16 years old and having an overprotective mother does to you.

Does that mean I don't exist? [Smile]

I am officially protesting this thread and Slash's use of 'Lizard King.' As everyone knows, I was officially elected Hatrack's Lizard President and as such effectively ruined the career of our onetime Lizard citizen.

I may have a place for you in my cabinet, Slashy boy. Maybe we can work something out.

To the best of my knowledge, I have never actually met anyone from Hatrack. I have communicated with several people via e-mail, posted my picture, provided links to my department web site and a technical paper I wrote. Still, I suppose, I don't actually exist.

I meet Ndra and Leto at endercon. I just can't remember the other lady that was with the two of them. I also meet OSC who gave me a strange look when i mentioned i've been writeing at VBS since 97. ;O)

I don't think i talked to, to many people at endecon. Im a sy guy when it comes down to it.

Slash since i only have the minimum of two contacts.does that mean i barely exist. actualy it wouldn't be te first time i was told i was a nobody.

I've been confirmed by two or three people, so I will claim boldly that I am. I will attest to the existence of Ralphie & Frisco, and will acknowledge Porce as she is the sister to a fellow I once knew in Arizona, and only she could possibly discover my nickname. [Razz]

The rest of you are bits and data.

Slashy, the people I know quite well and have complete confidence in their personhood, whom I've nevertheless never talked to on the phone or met in person are Bernard Yu (BYuCnslr), Richard Chiu (Survivor) and his brother Sam Chiu (Masdibar), Human, Pixie, and now Manuel (Devil will cry for me).

All these are certainly real people. I feel I can vouch for them as well.

Other than that, I've met Paul, Billie, Risuena, DawnMaria, and Naledge.(Though I met him originally at Endercon.)

I just realized that I have met saxon45, but that probably doesn't count because he isn't real either, being the product of an earlier model Engineer-simulator (one that has only 45 processors). Besides, that's only one and you said we needed at least two.

This makes it a little hard for overseas Jatraqueros.

However, I have met Ethics Gradient and can confirm that his photo in the album is indeed him.

I can go to some length to confirm my true identity as well.

Take these steps to confirm my indentity:

  • Go to the website www.cgc.com.au you will find the site of the company I work for.
  • Go to the "About CGC" button, and choose "Contact/Locations"
  • You will see a full address, phone number and email for the admin. The adminmel email address.
  • If you email that address, it will come to me, and I'm willing to reply to any emails. The reply will come back from the address in my profile.
  • To confirm the company's existence, go to www.whitepages.com.au and do a search on the name "Computer Graphics College" at the address on the site's contact page.
  • I am also willing to be called by anyone on the number listed.
  • You can also mail CGC Sydney to confirm MY existence
That'll be the best I can do - but it's pretty good confirmation of my existence, I think.

aka,

I remember years ago when we were all worried about one of your cats who was lost, but came home again. I never realized you were also "ak" but don't think I ever saw you posted as that until today.

People who were real to me back in 1999-2000: TomDavidson, brettly, PieMan, MOTO, userAnnie, dean, annie, aka, Slash (when his sis-in-law left her kids for an internet romance), Hobbes, JohnHansen ...

Does being mentioned in the afterword to an OSC book prove reality? ;O)

Also, I was seen by MANY at EnderCon, right on stage in the infamous Pweb Mod Skit. I was the 'Student Filmmaker'. The guy who was taping everything all over the con as well. All the Pweb Staff can vouch for me (Amka, Locke, Demosthenes, Zevlag, CalvinMaker, Ssywak, Rahl22, Ethan, and KennEnder, wherever he may be), and many other Jatraqueros as well.

Icarus...

Remember me? I'm the guy you told Cor you were out with until 4 am the other day...

I'm tired of covering for you.

I'm sure Cor would understand that you really just want to go out and sing karaoke at the Parliament House some nights... She seems pretty cool about that kind of thing.

She might be upset you didn't take her, but then she likes to steal the show whenever karaoke is involved.

Speaking of karaoke.............
