I do wonder what we'd all make of each other if we ever met up.
I'm just as much of a jerk in really life as I am on the internet.
Believe it or not, I'm quite a nice bloke offline...
For what it's worth, you've never been on my online ****list.

Actually, I always thought you were a bit of a c****...
JUST KIDDING. You do have a very "innocent" way about you. I don't mean that in a derogotary way btw.
I on the other hand...Well. I guess I am what we call a "spanner magnet", I attract the negative attentions of "spanners" . Maybe due to my slightly dry/cutting/sarcastic sense of humour...
However, I bet even the worst of enemies on forums, if they met up for a few beers, would get on well. The big problem with forums is that things that are said are without the context of body language, and without the advantage of sensing when the other person might be offended, which you get in a "live" group.
Not only that, I know full well I can call my mates all the names under the sun, and they will simply call them back and laugh. Doesn't really happen online...EVERYTHING IS TAKEN TOO SERIOUSLY.

I'll meet you there."
EVERYTHING IS TAKEN TOO SERIOUSLY.

This is true. Every time I "innocently" say something nice on a forum I'm actually shouting it angrily at the screen while giving you all the middle finger.
TheLhc on the other hand always writes his comments in a gentle whisper while smiling sweetly at the screen.

I trained, but never made a career of it. I still keep my hand in though ...

Assuming the traditional metal construction, I think we can more shortly just call you a 'magnet'.
HiFi / A/V / Bedroom
A policeman then a Rock Star.
Instead I got my City & Guilds in Gas Engineering, did 5 years at British Gas, left and joined BT/Openreach for 12 years. Then a brief spell with Virgin which I hated, so then back to Openreach until this May.
Now currently doing Openreach installation work as a contractor for Kelly Communications...... Not a fan, hence doing my LGV licence...
All the while still managing to Rock, if not quite attaining the 'Star' status.
Hi-Fi: Arcam A85, P85, CD192. B&W 602S3, PV1, Grado SR125, Atlas Titan, Hyper 2.0.
A/V: Sony KDL-V40A12U, BDP-S760, Humax Youview, Onkyo TX-SR875, B&W MT30 7.1, QED HDMI-P, S.A XT
At 14 had the overwhelming desire to be an aircraft engineer/designer.
