Introduce Yourself Here
« on: October 12, 2006, 06:22:12 PM »
This is the introduction thread to end all other introduction threads.  I'm going to sticky it to the top of the General Discussions and everyone will use it and we'll never have another introduction thread again!  I'll link it from the rules thread and it'll eventually grow to be more than 1,000 pages long.  Won't that be great?!?

So introduce yourself.  Even if you've been around forever, introduce yourself.  Tell us who you are, where you're from, how you found the H/P community, how you found PLA, your accomplishments, your goals and anything else you feel like sharing.

TO THE NEWBS: This is not the correct thread to ask questions about telephones, revenge, pranks, or any other topic that has nothing to do with introducing yourself to us.

TO THE REGULARS: Please don't attack the newbs in this thread.  Save it for some other thread.

Thought I'd say hi as it's my first day, I'm a lover of the old school scene born a little too late, but still love where it's gone/going.
I read the rules they seem awesome, more there to protect us than spoil our fun.


  No not really. But anything I write couldn't be half as good as that.

  Okay hey guys. I'm Nate. I like prank calls and culture distruption. I'm in the San Francisco Bay Area. I'm in my teen years.

Well I'm a canadian citizen... at lesat thats what I'm told.
I'm 17 and totally loving the p/h scene. I've been "phreaking" for a few years now... I only learned recently it was actually called phreaking!.. I used to call up the operator and lie to them saying I wqas doing a school report and to tell me about how phones worked (I got transferred to repairs first) and they told me.... which was pretty cool.... (dont laugh... I was young) But anyways, since finding the PLA I've increased my intelligence stat  by over 30 points, and have gained too much exp to calculate.

I've been prank calling since I was kid (as have we all I presume)....
i'm very open about my skills with phones, I usually have teahcers at my school asking me about how to this or that with their phones.
I figured out how tog et onto my schools PA system a few years ago. I personally havent used it but yah... wow... I didnt mean to type it this long.

I just occupy myself with skype or soemthing....

Well... thats me... I hope you love me  *rainbowsmiley*

I'm Frog. East coast of Canada. Eighteen years old. My two main interests are linguistics and telephony. I play the bass guitar, write occasionally, and like to tell people they're wrong. I have a decent knowledge of Latin and German. Due to the internet's disintegration of the mood of writing, most people think I'm an asshole. In reality, I would go out of my way to help almost anyone. I am particularly fond of Vikings and big noses.

Hey, I'm I-baLL and I'm a total n00b.

I got into h/p/a/c/v back in '94 after already being into computers and stuff. I saw that episode of Ghostwriter that talked about BBSes and found out that BBSes actually existed. So eventually I got a computer with a modem and started looking around for local bbs numbers. Finally I found out that a classmate of mine's brother ran a bbs from home but only during random hours. It was called "Exstacy BBS" and it only had about 3 or 4 users on it. But it also had other BBS numbers there so all was good. So I got into BBSes, called around and got into the scene. I must've found the PLA textfiles on one of those bbses in around 95 because in '96-'97 I remember being on the PLA web site in school and just waiting for updates.

So here I am today, trying to learn as much as I can and just messing about and having fun.

Hi there!

My real name is Oscar I was born pretty far away from the States a long while ago, I've been moving around since.
Never met my Papa or anything related to him, I've moved with my fiancée almost an year ago and everything is going sweet.
My Mum bought me my first PC when I was 6 (I'm 23 now) it was a 486i Compaq that still works (great stuff!!)
I've never been too good with tech things but I like it and I'm always open to learn new things.
I reached PLA like about 2 months now (Brad correct me if I'm wrong cuz I can't remember) and I turned a total addict even knowing that I have no much room here since I'm not American nor very technically skilled.
But as Mentor said, there are no nationalities here so I hope you're cool with me anyways.
I can understand 4 languages and speak two (well maybe 1 and a half) mmm and well I don't know what else it was supposed to be a short introduction sorry  :)

I'm Matt. I'm 19, and I'm going to school to perform, write, and teach music. When I was in middle school- early highschool, I was all into the h/p thing, but I've sort of petered out after things my friends did started coming back on me (re: bomb threats). I live in Oshkosh, WI, which is where I was born and (hopefully) not where I live after I graduate. I'm all music in almost any form, indie comics, underdog cartoons (Home Movies) and playing foursquare.

Oh yeah, I'm also getting married in a year and a half or so. Maybe.

Hello PLA and PLA associates,

My name is Zan. I found this site through hektik.org after I heard some calls Zak participated in. In those days I wasn't very educated on forum etiquette, and chose not to register on PLA://forums. Since then I've been a lurker, watcher, and most important consumer of your fine entertainment. I live in Chicago, IL. I practice interests in technology (Networking, and php/flash actionscript scripting). I love comedy. The humor practiced and perpetuated on PLs.org rock. Now I want to be a part of the community.

Thank you,

 Hello I am IluvInternet24/7. I like computers and the Internet and I like to correct people on spelling and grammer (not here, family is way more fun). I don't really prank people, but I love seeing what the PLA does. Some people call me "Cornelius" or "Corny", even though I'm not a guy and my real name is Mady. I like to read if I'm not on the PLA or waisting my life some other way. Ummmm... I think thats it.
