    I'm sure there are people from my school here, but apart from family that I have directed here, there is no one I know of.

    About 25-30, maybe more... can't remember how many came to our London picnic plus the other assorted catch-ups we've had. All fab people. :)

    No one personally – at least, not knowingly...

    It will be interesting to compare what people say here with the threads from when this question was posed in 2003 and in 2004. I don't know if we had one for 2005.

    None. I've talked to a few of them by phone, but never actually met another MRer (that I know of).

    Which has to make you wonder whether I am real or just a chip voice living in a box of circuits somewhere. ;)

    As a backtrack to what I previously said, I once saw a RAID of XServes...that may have been the legendary Mad Jew Bot...:D

    Nobody, but there aren't that many from Toronto or Australia. I'm fairly certain that I live within 15 minutes of a few MR members, but we'll probably never meet. Meh.....not that I want to meet them anyway. They post at a Mac-related message board, for goodness sakes. *yawn*

    They really aren't all total dweebs. Or maybe that's just the UK ones...

    Nah, but they average 73% DP (dweeb points), which, according to my calculations, would be enough for me to lose as much as 3% of my credibility with my peers per CH (contact hour). Fortunately, the loss rate asymptotes at about 13% though. Phew.

    Do you mean personally ?, and you should put where you come from people may be able to identify you better

    You gotta loosen up, mate. The percentages work out differently for crabs.

    None that I know of. I may have seen some without knowing it I think that there are some that live near me.

    None, but there aren't too many Mac users here in the north woods. I will be at the Mall of America store tomorrow with the family if anyone wants to say hello.

    One that I know of, it's entirely possible that in some of my travels I've run into some folks.

    I do know that I have met a few lurkers.

    I've been to the cube plenty of times. I must have walked past a MR user at one time or another. Sometimes I go there while waiting for my turn at the Genius Bar and leave MacRumors on the screen and hope someone else from MR is there and happens to see it.

    None! There seem to be folk at Manchester/University and stuff. but I've met none.

    Any on the Design Futures course at Salford University? :D Perhaps the Saddleworth area or anywhere else in between Manchester and Huddersfield?

    Two that I know of. There's a few more that I'd like to meet up with, but that probably won't happen anytime soon.
