Okay, since RBD thinks that a thread for introductions might help her play well with others (it won't) here is the official and stickied introductions thread. Say something about yourself, welcome new people etc. Irrelevant replies will be deleted, keep the general stuff for other threads please.
Hello my name is Slap and I am the admin on here. Been looking after this place for a little over 4 years now; standing on the shoulders of the giant that was Lord of Time and Space (and Serge before him back in the ezboard days, but it was LoTaS who migrated over to Yuku and set up most of what you see before you).
So outside of the forum I am the Technical Manager for a software company in the UK. I listen to a lot of music, watch films, brew my own beer and drink whiskey until I hate everyone more than usual. I have a degree in Bioinformatics and a particular interest in DNA, evolution and the origin of life. This morning I had a 30 minute debate on creationism with a Jehovah's Witness on my front doorstep. She was surprisingly well read, albeit blighted by the affliction known as faith that prevented her from being able to rationalise her own thoughts. She gave me a pamphlet, it was inevitably flawed but vaguely interesting to see what people are arguing currently. I was surprised that a door to door Jehovah's Witness was able to quote the theory of Irreducible Complexity to me although of course she couldn't stand up to arguments against it. But I digress.
So post your introduction, say hello to newbies, call Nathan a cunt etc.
As an aside, if you have any problems with the forum then check out the "if you have any problems" thread or send me a message via here: click
The only rules we have here are the Yuku terms of service ones, anything else is fair game. Anything which breaks the Yuku ToS will be removed and the person posting banned.
