Let's get acquainted:)

    I didn't find anything.

  • Ok, Joshi, why is your primary net language English? And do you drink vodka? Can you play chess? (isn't that a Russian strength?) And do you read Dostoevski? Hmmmm, it's so much easier to ask questions than answer them. 😉

    1. Because I'm crazy. I've loved English since my preschool years. Any foreign language to know is anyway a very useful thing, right? It opens you to more world than without it. (Another reason is a sorta escape from the unpleasant surrounding, to pretend belonging to a wider world..)
    2. I drink tea and coffee.
    3. I prefer racing games
    4. Enough idiots to read about a fictional one.
    5. Morning!
  • Yes, I'm having my coffee right now. Hmmmm, it's good/wonderful. I agree about foreign languages. My second language is French, and it's great fun for me to read in it.

  • What do you read in French?:)

  • What do you read in French?:)

    Words ?. 😃

  • He should go to Jersey and apply his knowledge;)

  • @joshi

    I like to read a lot of French, but especially thrillers, police novels, sometimes better books.

    Yes, words, for sure, linuxmint7 🙂

  • Let's see: leushino is obviously not my name but rather a place in Russia. I'm Orthodox and years ago I read a book about the monastery in Leushino and it captured my imagination. My father, by the way, was born in Russia "before" the revolution (another long story) but the family fled to Canada where I was born. Today I live in the US and our son is a distinguished software engineer with Microsoft Corporation. He is one of the leaders in the Xbox division and doing extremely well. We're very proud. I've used Opera for years (along with Netscape back in the day). That's about it for me. 🙂 BTW... lem729 I want to commend you for your hard (and patient) work with those asking questions and presenting problems. I'm sure the Opera team appreciate your efforts.

  • Blackbird, where are you from?

  • @leocg
    Leo, where are you there?

  • Originally born in Canada but now live on the west coast of the USA.

  • "Originally born" sounds interesting - implementing there's possible another birth, not so original;)

  • Yeah... didn't express that very well. 🙂

  • I've got 3 accounts, all in this forum, none in a bank and I drink only Tarkovskaya vodka.

  • @tolispro:
    Hello, pal. Welcome to the forums!
    We have a lounge here, too, as you can see...
    And I called you to mention that you can edit your posts here - during the first 30 minutes: click on the cog-wheel beneath your avatar - and you'll see the option 🆙

  • @linuxmint7:

    Linux, what's your second name? Mint:P?

  • Ruario, to better explain this langage nuisance, I've decided to add something here.

    As a Russian native and a rather successful Englisg student and angloman, I basically speak two languages: Russian and (British) English.
    I can understand American English, to some extent Aussie English, to a better extent Scottish English (to an extent Lowland Scots too), to a significantly lesser extent Pakistani English. But I do not speak nor going to understand either Inglish or english (including variations).
    I'm not even gonna read those - the only exclusion to that is when a speaker/poster is not at all an English speaker and only sort of forced to interact in the language.
    Sometimes I can consider offering some advice or assistance to such non-native speakers, but it may only happen if the circumstances allow.
