Well, since you broke the sequence, I guess I'm entitled to answer to Death_999 =)

1.What kind of poster you are:
New. To this board at list, I guess I just moved here from the pretty dead TW board, probably after everyone else did the same...
When I'm into it, I post like made and a lot. We'll see how interesting this place would be, hopefully it would.

2. Best moment in SC2:
Hmm... There were lots of parts that I liked... umm... when Tanaka return to the starbase with all his kids, when the Yehat joined me, when the Yehat and Pkunk sent help before the last battle, and when I've found the Arilou.
Another moment that really effected me is when I've met the Yehat for the first time. I was REALLY happy to find my allies and their strong terminators, and it got me really upset when I've found out that they betrayed me.

3. Favorite book ever (one or several):
The Wheel of Time, Ender's game, Death gate, Dragon Lace, Hyperion.

4. One hobby:
I like Transformers a lot, read TF comics and watching episodes, I hope it counts.
I also enjoy having ideas for a SC2 sequel, which is why I joined the TW team - to write a plot for the new game.

5. What you are/want to become in the real world:
I have no idea... My directions include advertising, programming, and writing... I really have no idea.

6. A fun fact about yourselves:
I see Chad wrote that he like Transformers in this field, but it would be unfair if I'll fill to fields with the same thing, right?
Oh, I know what might qualify- I use Word's Spell-Checker on every post I write, and people still complain about my English. I guess I just can't deal with all those times, In Hebrew there are only 3...

7. Anything else that feels valid and important:
At the spirit of warning that goes around here, I'll say this:
Beware of *THEM*!!!

1.What kind of poster you are
Dont post too much, mainly because the thing I wanted to say, was said, before I could say it... frustrating.

2. Best moment in SC2
Discovering Quasi-Space. My face looked like:  Shocked

3. Favourite book ever (one or several)
Ahh hell... almost every T. Pratchett book, Dune, A Clockwork Orange, Nostradamus Ate My Hampster, Expiration Date (not sure if that's the english title)

4. One hobby
Nothing that really counts as a hobby... they come and go. Right now it would be programming.

5. What you are/want to become in the real world.
President of Jamiaca or any kind of ruler of any tropical island

6. A fun fact about yourselves.
I look like Jesus Chryst

7. Anything else that feels valid and important
Nope

1.What kind of poster you are
  The kind who comes here whenever he remembers that there's a forum about the awesomest game ever.

2. Best moment in SC2
  When I was playing for the first time in years, and accidentally found found the quasispace portal right at the beginning of the game.

3. Favourite book ever (one or several)
  Hmm.  It'd probably be easier to name which books I don't like.  I guess right now it would be the Harry Potter books.  The Ender series is also great.  My friend just told me there's a new Ender book that I'm going to have to look into.

4. One hobby
  Reading.

5. What you are/want to become in the real world.
  I'm a student in computer engineering right now.  I want to create a new operating system that is more secure and easier to use than anything we have now, then flush Macrodiarrhea down the toilet.

6. A fun fact about yourselves.
  I have a blonde spot in the midst of all my brown hair.

7. Anything else that feels valid and important
  SC2 rocks!  It's so awesome that it is now opensource.

3. Arcadia by Tom Stoppard  ( a play). Mad Men and Specialists by Wole Soyinka.  Short stories by Lu Xun.

3. Favourite book ever (one or several)
Read? ME? HAHAHAHAHA!! Nice one!

4. One hobby

Well, letsee here.

1. Im a terrible lurker, only posting a couple times every 2-3 weeks. I'm a busy lil Androsynth!

2. Turning the Vindicator into a Spathi-Like ship. Full thrust/turn jets, 1 tail Hellbore, 3 trackers, 3 dynamos, 3 shivans, one storage bey and the rest in hi-eff fuel and crew pods makes for some interesting fights, try it. Favorite IN-game moment: Listening to the Ilwrath cater to my every whim as I impersonate Dogar and Kazon. Either that or blowing the living hell out of the Orz after I steal the Taalo device and get a little too curious about my culture vanishing from the face of the known universe.  Angry

3. Favorite book has got to be Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury. If you haven't read it, DO SO.

4. I'm a terminal Quake addict, Prozac Custom Team Fortress to be exact (sol.net rules!)

5. Well, I'm gainfully employed in a drug store right now (8 bucks an hour to stock is nice) and I want to become a network security guru. Either that or discover Dimentional Fatigue for real (Orz not included.) Can you imagine the possibilities? No more evil oil companies! YAY!

6. Well, I was born, raised, and still am in Shorin-Ryu Matsumura Kempo Karate. I've been actively training for about a decade now.

7. Hm. Well, to bolster Luki's and my own lowered morale due to the fate of our race, ANDROSYNTH RULE! *Slaps a bumper-sticker on his Guardian that says, "Beautify Quasi-Space: Kill an Orz"* What else...hmmm... Good to see all you people, and to see that there's such a large fanbase. Not much else.

1.What kind of poster you are

Ex-lurker. I post only when I feel I have something interesting to say.

Quote
2. Best moment in SC2

Accidentally discovering by brute force how to get an alliance with the Thraddash. Cheesy

Quote
3. Favourite book ever (one or several)

Hmm... Maybe the Rama series by Arthur C. Clarke.

Quote
4. One hobby

Programming, preferably games and multimedia. Any other programming is too much like work.

Quote
5. What you are/want to become in the real world.

Working on my M.Sc. thesis in Computer Science. I should be working right now, not posting here. Smiley

Quote
6. A fun fact about yourselves.

I occasionally remix old computer game music. I'd try something from SC2, but I don't feel I have anything to add to the originals or remixes; they're just too good!

Quote
7. Anything else that feels valid and important

A few years ago, I worked on a game similar to UQM. It was never finished due to lack of resources; half the team disappeared and the rest are busy studying.

Hmm... After all this I don't think there's any point in trying to hide my identity on this board. Wink

Lurker mostly, rarly every post, but usally when I do its not some silly one liner.
'LOL me too!' *roll eyes*

2. Favorite moment in SC2


Using the precusor bomb.  I travel all over space meet many new races, make a bunch of new friends, new enemies, fought and killed hundreds of ships, to be killed by that age old question "What does this button do?"


Quote
3. Favourite book ever (one or several)


That implys I read.  I'm not a big reading person.

Anything electronic. =)

Humm, I can solve the rubics cube in about 1.5 minutes.  I got a 0.0 GPA one semester at college.  Only person I know to get in an accident on my road test.  Car pulled out in front, I hit him, totaled both our cars and sent my instructor to the hospital.

1.What kind of poster you are
Here, uh not much, we'll assume we're talking about TW as well.  Lurker mostly, somewhat helpful, somewhat of a "cheerleader," lol.  I check TW daily.  I've taken a more "meta" approach to these projects, working on my own with the editor and treating TW as one solid mass with CVS, as opposed to getting into the nitty-gritty details.  Very long winded in any case Smiley

2. Best moment in SC2
(WARNING: SPOILER) When trademaster Reddish talks about ancient history, only to reveal that the historical facts are actually current events, and that the main character has a role in all of it.  This was the moment when everything in the game came together.  

3. Favourite book ever (one or several)
Douglas Adams.  lol O'Reilly book and textbooks, that's all I seem to read these days Smiley

4. One hobby
Reading gaming articles.  I think I've read every article on Gamasutra in the past year.

5. What you are/want to become in the real world.
5 year plan: Game programmer, working on AAA games that break genres (almost a contradiction these days Sad  )
30 year plan: Lead programmer on something I'm passionate about.  Owner of my own company.  Having a really cool watch that's more functional than attractive.

6. A fun fact about yourselves. [sic -- consider "yourself"]
I'm disturbingly focussed on getting into the gaming industry.  Hmm... fun...  I ascended in NetHack for the first time in November.  I tend to put everything into terms of NetHack or D&D, much to the shagrin of some of my friends who have never played either Smiley  I was a cheerleader in high school.  I also played football, but not at the same time.  I play three types of brass instruments (all musical, none of which involves the knuckles directly... you know, brass knuckles?).  

7. Anything else that feels valid and important
I spell colour with a U.  Why is it that every API spells things using amercian english?  I used to #define Colour Color to use international spelling as a rule in high school.  I have taken a martial art called Seikido, which combines Aikido and Tae Kwon Do.
