Super 8 Posted December 3, 2002 Share Posted December 3, 2002 Hi. I'm saving space by condensing what could be two or even three separate topics into just one. Mom would be proud! [b]First, a request:[/b] I have been coming here regularly for over a year now. I hate logging on and not knowing who anyone is. (I understand we get new people, and this isn't directed toward them -welcome aboard, new members!) Would it be too much to ask that if you are going to change your screen name that you PLEASE keep the name we all know you by in there somewhere??? Tedster changes screen names OFTEN, but he always keeps "Tedster" in there so I know who he is -which is good because I like Tedster and will go out of my way to read his posts when I see his name. This could apply to many of you too! Maybe we could cut down on the 'alter egos too'...? It's confusing to anyone who isn't 'IN' on your little 'in-joke', I'd appreciate it. [b]Second, Another request[/b] ([i]yes, another one)[/i]: Has anyone read the little blurb about 'Avatar size'? I really think this is an area where bigger ISN'T better. For me, it's merely annoying when you have five posts in a thread and your avatar takes up half my screen. But I'm one of the lucky ones. I have a broadband connection. People like, oh lets see, ummmm, [i]Craig Anderton[/i] are connecting with dial up modems and are maybe peaking at 33k... They get to download your image repeatedly. How FUN is that??? Let's try to get a handle on this if possible. Please??? [i][b]Okay. I'm done being an accountability jerk. I hope I still have some friends here.[/i][/b] [b]Third, My son likes "Hella Good":[/b] ([i]If you don't have little 'uns of your own, you'll probably not enjoy this too much -you have been warned.[/i]) So my son Ian (19mos) and I are out grabing a bite the other day at a local fast-food joint we enjoy, and over the sound system comes "Hella Good" by No Doubt. It's a pretty infectious groove, and although it gets a little repetitive, I really like it. Anyway, it's not very loud, and people are talking in the room but my son still hooked into it -I love it when he hears something he likes, it's SO COOL! Every time they punctuated the groove in the song with that 'SynTom' sound Ian would go "dooo"([i]like a syntom[/i]). I thought it was too cool. He REALLY seems to respond to music well. I hope he has the gift! I don't know if most babies/toddlers dance to music and respond to it at their own initiative, like Ian does. My guess is that most probably do. But just the same, I LOVE seeing music have an effect on him and I hope he develops a genuine passion and love for it. I'd never force it on him, but he will definitely find the path free of any obstruction, should he chose to take it... Anyway, I got a big kick out of Ian's "doooo" sound, and I HAD to share it with someone, and you were the ONLY group of people I thought would appreciate it on the levels that I do.
