Welcome aboard, Twisty.
Hello TWISTY. Your avatar is delightful.
Welcome Twisty! You had been at various geeky boards and you missed this one*? How comes?
*as in being the biggest one for SW stuff
not my first forum i've been too but first time on this forum.
And how do you like it here?
From the adoption thread:
Fine, fine. And you?
I think I go offline, watching some tv... or reading a book? Not sure yet, but it's time for non-computer-time.
I'm fine thanks, may the force be with you!
With you, too! Always!
mattman8907: Failte nua duine! Welcome to the cult.
thanks. what does failte nua duine mean?
Irish for welcome new person.
Correct. Didn't know you could read 'bloke'.
Google translate has Gaelic? That's a step above offering Coptic or Sanskrit...
It has Irish. Not sure about Gaelic. Google Translate is so buggy, though. I can't read most languages but I have general ideas on what the characters look like, which is how I manually told Google Translate to translate the Irish for me - automatic translation told me it was Italian. WAT
Still waiting for the day Klingon gets put up there...
I can transfer my keypad to type in Irish since I am emailing home quite a bit. I'm too lazy most times when posting on here and randomly start spouting in Irish about this, that, or the other and don't even realize it til I re-read a post and then usually edit it.
So you're like fluent? Which is your first language?
I was raised split 50/50, but US public school soon ruined my ability to speak either well, since whatever it is they were teaching, it certainly wasn't English...
Now you make me curious how you sound in RL...
...Are you coming to the Celebration Europe in Essen next year?
Gah! I am a Force Ghost!
Bean- I am actually considering attending. I hadn't been until recently, but dorking out with fellow Europeans is far too appealing a concept to dismiss outright. I have a strange crossbred Philadelphia & northern Irish accent. 75% typical deep-voiced Philadelphian, 25% northern Irish. The Irish is more pronounced in what Americanly uncommon words & phrases I use. Such as "cheers, thanks a million, grand, half-one or half two, etc., carpark, petrol, and of course when I go full on Gaelic. For some reason, the accent is far more prominent when I use certain words, which probably makes it stand out that much more when the rest of the sentence is soooo SW Philly.
Well the WNU has been very European centric traditionally
That is true. A strange statistic, but accurate.
We cannot have that. AMERICA!
I'm dripping with random, off-base sarcasm today.
Yep, interesting statistic, but I think it's also one's viewpoint. There had been a mod from the USA and one from Sri Lanka as well (not counted the other short-term mods of WNU, but those haven't been from Europe neither), plus most people posting here from America. Only some of the oldbies are European.
Mykee, in case you really come to the Jedi-Con, let me know. FanForce meetings are teh cool! And I count meeting people from the JC to FF meetings, since - in a miraculous way - mostly a FF meeting is organised at the same time at the same place as the JC meeting.
