    It seems like a lot of members now know at least one other member in real life. I was curious, just how many do?

    my wife and i used to go to the mac store where mischief worked in capitola, ca before i was a macrumors member

    many macheads i know lurk here and at appleinsider.com and macosrumors.com just to get a peak just before a macworld show...but they are not as interested as us core users in every minute detail of apple inc and their products

    I know one member. Little does he know I am coercing him into buying a Mac to eventually replace his PeeCee. OK, maybe he does know ;)

    Nope. Don't know anybody. Maybe we should have some kind of annual Macrumors meet or something. :)

    I've met a few: Eyelikeart, B2tm, MrsB2tm, teabgs, and of course DutchessStreet

    I've been in the same room with Jelloshotsrule, whfsDude and Blakespot but failed to meet them.

    And almost had a beer (Bass Ale) with Cleo in St. Pete, but schedule and the wife being sick postponed that - although I did talk to her on the phone a couple times.

    I figure I'll meet up with a few more in the coming year due to projects I'm involved in with other members.

    Eye is actually coming to visit sometime - I think.

    I haven't yet, almost did once.

    In a year, though, I'll have to find people in Sweden (Maine). :snicker: :snicker:

    The keyword is "used" to work at....but know who'll give you a good deal?

    Backtothemac. Check out GeneralCybernetics (a MR sponsor)...that's him, he'll hook you up...;)


    Gave me a great deal on a tower and a great deal for an iBook for my gf....

    No - I don't know any MR members as such, although I do recommend the site to any prospective or current Mac user that I know, because of all the great information available, and the nice chats we all have together.

    There are a few people at my work who surf the pages on the site every once in a while, but I have no idea as to whether or not they have actually registered...

    Maybe I should find out...

    Ha, so I guess I could put you in the 'I've met you list now' and is Aaron a member? I didn't think he was?
