    I was looking through the September 2003 issue of MacFormat magazine and on page 130, there was a bit about the Santa Monica Apple Store opening, complete with photos of two people we already know. :)

    i think ubergeek is super private about her appearance...being the only female poster who visits these forums regularly besides vniow

    now she will get all these macrumors teenage boys chasing after her :p :p :p

    For some reason I was thinking über got booted. Guess I'm mixing her up with someone else.

    I have a copy of the september issue. Which picture is it exactly?

    Even better from that issue is the article about apple rumour websites (page 20). Macrumors is top of their list.

    Not a bad billing :)

    Did you notice that the screenshot was of a different website--MacRumours.com? :D

    Anyway...as you people would like to see...

    In the picture that you posted which one is übergeek and ibookin? Is there a chance that you could enlarge the picture bousozoku? My eyesight isn't all that good, needed a magnifier to read the words.

    Do they sell MacFormat at the Apple Stores?

    Hmm, they must be either the matching apple shirt couple towards the left, or the better dressed couple in the middle...

    I would love to get a copy of that magazine. The article looks interesting too. Wasn't Hal the guy who was posting on-line? I think I have read some of his blog while he was waiting....

    She's still with us, but hasn't been as active lately since she's been spending more time in live chats. She posted here yesterday, for example.
    Yes, he posted the night before and the day of the opening. And I posted a photo of Hal, who didn't mind the attention, in this thread. But I don't think we should post photos of or identify other members unless they say OK.

    Actually, if someone were to search on Santa Monica, there might still be links to the original photos in the MacRumors forums posted by übergeek herself.

    Is it a coincidence that 'hal' has übergeek written on his laptop (?) ;)

    Whilst I agree that someone should be entitled to privacy, before they start complaining about their photo being posted online, surely they should worry about it being in a magazine :rolleyes:

    I gotta agree with you eye - this is probably pushing what she's willing to put up with. Lotsa folks want to stay pretty anonymous online, and this defeats that completely. If she had posted it, that's one thing, but she probably didn't even know about this being put up. I think removing it was the right thing to do.

    My .02¢

    you people are weirdos :D

    seriously if you're that desperate for pics of me take a look on my .mac homepage. Get the address from me or josh or the regulars in the IRC channel.

    Really, this is ridiculous, but that same pic is also on spymac, and it's also on my iDisk. WHO CARES!!!!

    btw, i'm the really short asian girl in the middle. Josh is the taller guy with the gray/charcoal shirt to the right (your right, which is -->) :p

    btw, i didnt know about this thread until i read all the IMs and the e-mails about this thread :p then i wondered why i couldnt see it, but after mudbug told me...eh i have no probs with it :)

    Takes one to know one. :D

    I wasn't telling who you were. They couldn't force me.

    I was just surprised to see you in the magazine. :)

    It's weird in general to see pictures of people who post on here. Seeing who PatrickOBrian was for instance. I guess you get used to thinking of the avatars when that's all you've got to go on.

    Pretty cool about gettin in the mag tho!
