What was your BBS of choice back in the day?
Nightstalker. hehe.. okay, so that's a cheap answer. I actually had a handfull that I frequented and I'd say they were all of equal importance to me. The Timestream was one, it being the major gathering point for most of the people I liked. Nightstalker I enjoyed because of the discussions it attracted (somehow different from the ones Timestream got, though I've never figured that one out as the core userbase was essentially the same). Dreams Underfoot was another fav, even though I wasn't on it for as long. Most others I really didn't frequent as much, or I simply didn't feel as "at home" as I did in those three.
(NS being a cheap answer because it was mine, for those who didn't know. few things are as satisfying as seeing a user is online and just randomly turing on the "MmM MmMmMm mMmMmM" filter!)
If you knew success was guaranteed, what would you do with your life?
The same damn thing I'm doing right now. I realize it's a sad, cheap answer, but it's true. The lifestyle I currently have (working in computer support, studying math) is one I've been gearing up for since the 8th grade (and one I've been actively developing skills for since 6 years old). My life-long plans for well over a decade have included "eventually get a PhD in Math". It's shifted from "...and find a job that uses it" to "... and never use it in my job" as I realized that the easiest way to continue to enjoy something (for me, at least) is to dissasociate it from your survival. As it is, though, taking classes in the Masters program in Mathematics here is clearly along that path. Perhaps the only thing I'd change to my overall lifestyle, knowing that success is assured, is shift "permanently move to Southern Germany and naturalize as a German citizen" from a "nice goal, but not definate" to "definate goal". I'd still be working towards it, either way. I guess I might tack "have my photography support my lifestyle" on as well, but I'm hesitant to move something from a "hobby" to "job" status (see the dissasociation mentioned above).
