    Andy Warhol predicted that we'd each have 15 minutes worth of fame in our lives. With the internet and search engines, we may all the permanently immortalized in cyberspace.

    I'm going to toot my own horn here just a bit. I got an e-mail from an editor who's going over a book I contributed to (it really was just a bit on one chapter) and here's what she had to say:

    Excuse the choppiness of the text. I can't believe my name would come up in a search but stranger things have happened. I apologize in advance if it seems like I'm engaging in shameless self-promotion. Believe me, it's not like I authored the book or anything. These days, a lot of technical books are written by a team of contributors and my role thus far, is being one of the minor contributory staff.

    If it can happen to me, it can happen to anyone.

    Edit: Oh this is too funny. I did a google search of variations of my name and came up with these folks. No relations, I'm sure, but...oh well, have a look .

    Give over(English term) Trip, chill 8) , your one of the most decent people I've ever come across, no need to tread on eggsheels here.

    Oh, googled myself, :whatthink http://www.thehypezone.com/hypeflex_files/archives/august03/imagepages/flex22.html

    So, do you think that's really me :?: or not :?:

    Maybe we could post our real pics somewhere, as in photos.I've seen Trips photo over at certtutor, maybe we could have a similar thing here.I used to say I'd never ever post my photo on the net but now I don't really give a hoot, I feel like I know you people well enough for you to see my ugly mug.
    :D

    I can just see Si repeatedly banging his head against a wall saying: "I just got the forum set up the way I want it and now I have to make another change"! :eek: :lol:

    Flex...you're sworn to secrecy on the picture thing. If people found out how homely I look, I'm libel to be asked to leave. :wink:

    Get this "SimonV" comes up 6th in google ranks for this site. I even have my own domain http://www.SimonV.com/

    If you really want to I dont mind, just start a new thread. The only thing is you need to host any pictures yourself. Either on your own webspace or with one of the very many free webspaces providers.

    Try: http://www.freepichosting.com/ or http://www.freepicturehosting.com/
    never used them before so cant say if there anygood.

    I don't mean to pour cold water on things, but I kind of like not knowing what you all look like - gives the site an air of mystery.

    And besides, you do NOT want to see the face behind the Armadillo :eek: :bigcry [/b][/code][/quote]

    You think I hadn't looked already, Trip ?

    It was sheer modesty that kept me from putting that link up :oops:
