... because they've always thought nobody could be that ugly, and then blam, you walk up and prove them wrong, like "Oh....damn..."

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

lol! - Isn't there a problem with the forum/registration if it allows user names with just one letter?
The future is here.

Apparently we don't care.  Or maybe he used some international characters to circumvent the length check or something.  I personally don't really see the harm in it, but that's just me.  LOL maybe I should change his user name to "Ohface"

One thing I hate is when people start using weird characters in their usernames. I.e. usernames that doesn't match ^[a-zA-Z0-9 _.-]+$

Mine was because I'm kind of a hopeless romantic and nothing seemed to be working in that department for me so I decided I'm not the one who's hopeless, romance itself is hopeless and so I used to post everywhere as hopelessXromance. But then I got too lazy to type it all and cut it to hopelessX. Its more fitting now since it includes all aspects of my life :P

And Pee Ess. I've been with my girlfriend for almost a year and it seems to be going good still (knock on virtual wood) so maybe I'm not hopeless afterall! :P
Just getting back into the swing of things.

I just finished watching a kung fu movie that night, and i called me PHPsensei. No one can mess with the sensei...... no one. ever. no. stop. no one. just nobody.... not even chuck norris. Okay! maybe he can, but no one else.  8)

edit: The user above me, you are hopeless, I thought your name was Hopeless Sex, because having sex was hopeless?

It started in my sophomore year. If you don't know, "sophomore" means Wise Fool in Greek. I thought of the magic 8ball, and how well "foolish wisdom" correlates to it. I never really used it that much back then though, but I liked to think of myself as being older than I was back then. :P

It was when I started playing FPS's like UT2003 and CoD, that I needed a silly little name to put on the scoreboards. I tried many, only two stuck: Nascosto8 (nascosto is "hidden" in italian) and 8ball.

Everyone who knows me in game knows "hidden" is faaar from my play style, and I was so good at FPS's they told me 8ball suited me better. I asked why, and they said: "bank the 8ball and you lose instantly". 5 years later, no one wants to play with me XDDD.

That reminded me of Verve Pipe's "The Freshman" lol.
