Yeah, I imagine the conversations go something like this:

TLS person: Oh, so you're src42! Cool!
Me: Yep.
TLS person: Your avatar is a kitten. Is that your kitten?
Me: Nope, just a cute kitten.
TLS person: Haha, well...cool.


I am still on the fence about outing myself as a TLSer.

Great! I gotta do that soon...


You said you're abroad yeah? Where are you?


I am in Seoul, South Korea. (Just got up at 3:30 in the morning because I felt that I needed to check TLS. ;))

Yeah, I don't think I will unless someone asks me. And even then I'll probably be like, "Yeah, I've been on that site once or twice. There's some good LSAT prep material." Instead of the truth, which is more like, "Yeah, I'm on that site all day and literally do no work anymore."

Had I attended last year I would've had a semi-sane amount of posts almost entirely in the on-topic threads and would've felt savvy about my use of TLS...instead I deferred and started the need for serious time wasting...then I reached 500 posts, then 1000...I'm a little scared to see what my # will be by August.

Exactly.

I imagine I'll end up friends with at least one of you --through normal person-to-person socializing. One day, after a particularly gruesome exam, we'll go out for a drink. After months of friendship, a lot of stress, and a few beers, we will admit to each other that *gasp* we were both fairly active posters on TLS.

...but only then.

You just reminded me to do that. I hope all the awesome email addresses aren't already taken.

Hush. I need to focus here. I'm creating like six accounts with fourteen passwords that all need to rotate every 120 minutes.

I'll be the guy walking in late on Saturday. Here is to hoping that it won't be cold, I don't even own a real winter jacket.

EDIT: After the password requirements at my job, NU's seem like cake. Only an 8 character limit? Pffft

I know! I use variants of a very secure password for different things, and I had to make up a new one because my usual was too long! Maybe they get sick of people forgetting long ones.

ArchRoark, for some reason, your name makes me think of Roark from a Time to Kill. "Rooow-ark" That was about the only humorous bit of that book, actually.

Woo for sitting in the back...look for me I'll be the guy walking randomly up to women and saying "rinkrat?"..."rinkrat?" and getting ALOT of odd looks...

ah the deferral purgatory, I know it too well! the good news is, it's worst at the end of August, but then gets better as you watch 1Ls prep for exams/summer job search then before you know it, it's admissions season again and your back in the game!

I was at an ASW last weekend and was totally paralyzed by social anxiety. Hopefully this weekend will be a little more comfortable. If not, you and I can stand at the back of the crowd and not talk to one another :oops:

Unfortunately, I'm swamped at work and don't think I can make it to this weekends' ASW, but I am definitely looking forward to meeting any of you I didn't meet at the diversity ASW in August!

If anybody needs a last minute place to crash, PM me :D Must love dogs...

Looking at apartments in Streeter tomorrow, we shall see. Pix to follow.

The IT department is a little behind the times and didn't have a database that could store passwords longer than 8 characters. Because the passwords were so small they make you change in pretty constantly and it sucks. I hear that they are going to be allowing longer passwords soon and this will result in making you change it only once a year .

Ugh. All this accomplishes is forcing me to write all my passwords down somewhere obvious and easily accessible. Which is GREAT for security.

OTOH, I also hate passwords that require capital letters and symbols. When are we gonna switch over to fingerprint or retina scans?
