    here's the question: have you met any macrumors members? By met i mean in person, face to face? If so, who, and were they what you expected?? No nastiness please...

    As for me, the only person on the boards i know in person is anneleonard, and thats purely because she's my girlfriend (we met long before either of us started posting on here btw) so i guess she doesn't really count.

    no, I haven't and I dont think I'd like to.

    Im shy and it would just be really wierd and uncomfortable.

    looking at the MR pics thread is wierd enough ;).

    I've only met one, and I know him because I made him sign up, so I guess that does not really count.

    ibookin' definately, since he's my boyfriend.
    I might have seen Doctor Q, i've definately seen pics of him and we don't live that far away from each other, but yeah i really havent personally met him

    I've also met Mercury, since he's my boyfriend's friend, and then of course there are a whole bunch of lurkers. Yeah.

    I'm like Keyser Soze; people claim to have seen me but there's no actual proof!

    Actually, four members know what I look like, but all are sworn to secrecy. I like being mysterious. In fact, eventually, after I've met all 18,889 MacRumors members personally, I'll still have them all sworn to secrecy.

    Re: have you met any of the MR members?

    mrjamin - are you saying that you knew anneleonard before either of you started posting here... and then you both started posting but didn't know the other person was posting, and then found out? if that makes sense...

    i've never met any MacRumors people, and i don't know if there's all that many in Brisbane. there's definitely a few in Melbourne and Sydney.

    i guess it'd be okay if i met someone at an Apple store or something, but i don't think i'd go out of my way to meet someone.

    this is really kind of cheating...

    But I serve on this committee (actually I chair it) that my friend also serves on. I actually met him through the committee.

    He had his PB out the other day and that's when I found out he was a Mac person. We started talking about rumor sites, and he mentioned how he liked spymac, I think, because everyone there was so stupid. I mentioned that I liked MacRumors, for reasons that were quite the opposite. Well, he also mentioned that he always used the same handle, so I searched the member database here and discovered that he was actually a member of MR.

    It's cheating because I didn't meet him after meeting him on MacRumors. It's also cheating because he's only posted 8 times.

    I haven't met anyone from the internet, so I don't know how freaky insane that would be. I just saw Texas Chainsaw Massacre last night, so perhaps my perception is a bit off...

    There are a few people I would like to meet, notably those in the Pacific Northwest... unfortunately, I will be unable to attend the Portland Apple Store opening... :(

    Maybe we should have a Geekfest Northwest. Go to the Krispy Kreme in Portland, grab beers afterwards (when I'm 21, of course). We could go to McMennamin's!

    well in a roundabout way, billicus, i went to high school with him, didn't know him too well but then i ran into him here :) and i have the feeling that a lot of people i know are reading these boards, i suspect an old friend of mine posts occasionally...

    but none that i knew on MR first, then met. living in the middle of iowa kind of isolates you from casually running into people like this...

    I could meet some MR users like mc68k and rower_cpu, but I try to keep a low profile as far as these things are concerned. Im pretty wary of meeting people from the internet, though. Being 15 and all, us youngins tend to think of ourselves as adults when we indeed have much growing up to do and usually end up getting bailed out of situations by our parents.

    is that where we steal a fancy car in our town and drive them all to a designated location that's as far away from all of us as possible? i would so be game for that, if someon else would steal the car for me.

    all are fine examples of english gentlemen.... ;) :)

    I'm looking forward to the next Geekfest London on the Saturday of the MaxExpo on November 22, and hoping that we'll see your goodself there mrjamin, as I don't know any other R.E.M. fans, especially the rare kind who's fav album is 'New Adventures In Hi-Fi'.... ;)

    Be good to see other Londonites there as well... ;)

    If it's an All Blacks Vs England final, then I and most likely others will be meeting up with kiwi_the_iwik in an aussie bar to watch England win.... heheh!!

    When I'm stateside next year, I'll be calling in and corrupting the souls and minds of eyelikeart, bttm, mr d, evo, jello, and moxie.... hehheh :D

    Well, not many people from MR are in Melbourne, maybe with the exception of mac15...
    But he's a Syndeyer...

    Ah well, there are some Melbournians, but most of them I don't know.

    Maybe the guys I know can fly down one day...
