I am amazed! I really thought when I first got here that Mara was a female. Then as I returned, and things, for no specific reason, I began to think that Mara was maybe a male. Then a little while ago, something happened in a thread, and then I thought you were a female again... Now finally a definitive answer!

Cool

I understand why Asian people may think I'm a male (because of my login), but why others? Another language problem?

Well at first, yes to me Mara sounds like a females name, but then after the first glance, it could go either way. To me anyway...

Yes, people speaking languages where female names often end with 'a' usually think I'm female. But why you changed your mind (female->male)?

I don't know, might have been the tone of your posts, or something, not quite sure. Hope that doesn't make you mad or anything

Cool

PS everyone: I am still trying to get my USB card reader up to get my pics on the computer, I utterly refuse to boot into XP to do this, as I have done it before on other installs. Anyway, once I get it worked out, I will post em.

Cool

Speaking of which I'm working on the web-interface to Tricky's kneecap, sorta like one of those HP Laserjet thingys, actually that's where I stole the code. I gotta map that "fill toner" alarm to something else soon... Anyway, does anyone else want to log onto Tricky's kneecap? I'll post the URL soon. Oh, Trick, sorry about that kick you gave to your bosses ass the other day... uh, yeah, it was er... a beta test, sure!

Okay, since I got a kick out of it, Finegan's specifics, Trickykid style:

Age: 26
Sex: Any day now according to this contract I have with Bill, er Satan.
Location: Behind a desk, a number of them, Atlanta GA
Race: 100m chainsmokers dash (er... jog really), with hopes of the lung butter olympics. No really, just another off shade CRT tanned pasty geek of the americana-blenderized all of european variety.
Favorite Binding: Trade paper, and not just because O'Reilly uses it either!
Pets: None, unless you count the evil DVD player. Although I regularly house-sit for a cat named "coredump".
Connection: DSL, T-3, T-1, and anything I can beg, borrow, or wardrive.
Hobbies: Job at a Library. Ook!
Job: LQ while at the library.
Coffee: Black

Aussie is really from New Zealand, okay... the world is now on its ear. My co-moderator is a closet Kiwi.

Cheers,

Finegan

well, if it helps any, i always took it for granted that you were a fellow linux-chick. i was posting here for about four or five months before kewpie finally had a lightbulb go off in his head http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...&threadid=7877 , and he realized that all his jokes about nut-cracking were for naught.

25, female, and i think i'm german. i'm not really sure, because i'm adopted, and i haven't been able to find out anything about my bio-parents, which is just as well, since my adopted parents are pretty close to perfect. they're spanish-americans, so i guess that makes me a psuedo-spanish german american. i always just check the "other" box.
