    Well lucky for you we dont want to meet you, so I guess you'll avoid those risks :p:
    Quite. HMK you're one of the few who probably does hide your real personality, or whatever. By and large most people are just themselves. Its too much effort to be anyone else :p:

    Those are assumptions. Ethereal did not come on the trip. I do have the mobile numbers of some TSRers. When I said 'we found it in the Lake District'.. I meant the group of us who went into a pub and saw that beermat on the wall. One of them was a TSRer, but it wasn't Ethereal.
    But my "guess" was right, you do know Ethereal in real life dont you? As for making assumptions, people make them all the time...

    I speak to him on MSN and I have his mobile number. I'm not sure that counts as 'in real life' ^o) And yes they do, but you give most of them a run for their money.

    You would be surprised. Asides I come off differently online than I would IRL, often unintentionally, and I am lousy with the interweb. But I do have areas I hide to protect my identity, as sensible precautions, given some of the people I talk to.

    Mobile number I would say brings it pretty close to real life i suppose, but meeting in person is obviously better. Anyway, whats wrong with making stacks of assumptions?

    Merely the fact that in my overall experience of you you're usually way out.

    It depends how you make them, in real life I can test them without announcing I made them with ease. Online its another matter, and I am slow to adapt to it. The interweb is a funny place.

    Yep. Its a virtual games console that runs on your pc, which you can play virtual games or ROM's with. For example Fusion plays Mega Drive games.

    The Java games are written directly from the start, where as an emulator takes the actual code of the old games and runs them. The games are exactly as they were when released initially on their original consoles.
