Something Extraordinary About You?

Something Extraordinary About You?

edited August 2012 in General

Purpose of this thread, tell LET something extraordinary about you that they don't know.

Could be some sort of achievement, something you excel in, whatever you want.

I'll start - I used to be a DJ/Music Producer, I've released over 15 tracks in the past & have had the likes of Digweed/Sasha/Hybrid play my music (if you know who they are).

  • My name is Marc and I own VPS Node Box. Since I've found this community I fell in love with it. I have an obsessive compulsive personality and I am a perfectionist. The good thing about this is that I succeed at almost everything I try, the bad thing is that I overwork myself and it consumes me. However at the end of the day positive results make me feel good about the work that I do, and it makes me happy if I can make someone else happy, even a complete stranger that I have never met.

    I know how to sew clothes using sewing machine. I know how to cut some of my personal clothes for home use.

    Started a software shop with colleagues in 2007 fulltime (http://brewsoftcorp.com/) but due to financial crisis during those years, were forced to do any job that will pay (java, php, c++)

  • @jcaleb Sewing takes patience and skill. So does coding. Congrats on your skills :)

  • jcalebjcaleb Moderator

    My mother said something and it was used as an out of context quote by the local newspaper, a school riot ensued and the kids started talking shit about me - my solution was to go all political on their ass and within 3 lessons and a lunch I felt like I was running for president.

    I'm the only long-time lowendtalk member who has never cussed at another member, talked bad about someone, or got in a fight. Though, I suppose there is a first time for everything.

    It doesn't seem like much, but I like to find solutions rather than cause problems. To that end I've authored over 30 open source projects followed by hundreds of developers and run two tutorial sites.

    So why did I just write this? Am I just trying to look good here?

    A lot of people just accept their unhelpful attitudes as normal - and even acceptable. I want people to see that we can help each other and there isn't a need for some of the strife that goes on a day-by-day basis. If I can manage to hold my tongue once in a while, you can too.

    In the end it's more helpful, yet often tougher to do this than the more impressive feats we do.
    Because being nice and helpful doesn't get you fanfare.

    What type of martial arts, what is it called?

    Silat, I've done that before, Malaysian isn't it?

    @gbshouse said: @Infinity - 2 DAN in Eskrima, beside that military CQB and knife fighting.

    Interesting, I've done a few different types of martial arts but now I just stick to Kickboxing and Thai Boxing, not that I particularly like it.

  • Pencak Silat is originally from Indonesia :)

  • @AsadHaider People that are hidden behind a keyboard, a screen and their NIC always think that for some reason they are immune, anonymous or better than everyone else. This has been an issue since the mid to late 90's, when the masses started having access to the Internet. I remember a few people having their asses kicked over crap they said in a IRC channel. So don't be to hard on @subigo - this is an almost 2 decade old problem and it's not unique to him by any stretch.

  • @subigo this is what you said to me: "Suck a dick." - I did not start cursing and I thought that everyone was civilized around here, but I was wrong. I asked you to please be civilized, but you kept at it. I am not just going to let you continuously insult me.

  • @Jack far from be it to use foul language, I absolutely hate to insult anyone or take any discussion to a personal level. I am sorry but I had to say something to @subigo, otherwise he wasn't going to stop. I see this pretty often, that people come to a forum to vent, but it's absolutely the wrong place to do it. If you want stress relief you can always work out, jog or hit something (a pillow maybe?!). Talking dirty on a forum and insulting others isn't the way to do it.
