Yes I remember when you started here LeordxZ You were a little nervous about joining in. Now though you're a Super User who helps out and makes time to greet new users to the site. New users that might be nervous of joining in with a strong well established community are made to feel welcome.
I feel a song from the lion king coming on here, it's the circle of life.

Sithi uhm ingonyama :lol:
I suppose to answer your question PiratMas I would have to say that I do view the site a little differently now. It's so much bigger than when we first joined so that has changed the feel of the site a little. I think what lies at the heart of KAT though remains. It's still a great community with people who support and help each other. There are still a lot of fun threads if you know where to look and the torrents are even cleaner than they used to be.
aSBo was fun though. He did break the rules a lot and told the Mods and Staff a few too many times to "fuck off" so he couldn't be allowed to behave like that when other people would have been deleted. His heart was always in the right place though. He may have had anger issues but he loved the site and he was a very funny guy indeed and generous to a fault with people.
It was a really nice picture of Leonard Nimoy. Don't know if you clicked on the link to watch the YouTube video of him in a contest with the new actor who plays Spock but it's very funny.

I've never heard of the "Aveyond" series I'm afraid. I'm guessing it's an anime series.
The name "Ahriman" comes from an ancient Persian story and is the first recorded instance of a devil. As for whether it's my real name or not, I will tell you this; my real name is contained within my user name.:biggrin:
You're not going to trick me into staring at that image to see if she wink's at me. (Largely because it's a Jpeg and not a gif):lol:
Eyes that change what they are doing without any warning at all is my trick. (And it's still very satisfying when someone pm's me and tells me they got scared when I opened my eyes and looked at them):biggrin:
Yeah they should be banned and then shot and dragged out into the street and their bodies hung from lampposts as a warning to other down voters....or we could just lead by example and show them a better way. A polite pm asking why the torrent was down voted and a link to thePiratePimp's excellent thread on the Courtesies of Downloading. (The thread also has a link within it to horrorhound's thread on leaving feedback on torrents, so another good read for the down voter)
Remember, a down vote can be undone and although many down voters don't reply to Pm's asking why they down voted the torrent, some do so it's worth sending a polite Pm. (Notice I emphasize the word "Polite")
People who repeatedly down vote for no good reason can be reported for doing so and then the Mods can step in and have a polite word.
Not sure what the edit is in this blog. Which admin put that into the blog and if the blog needs to be deleted why is it still here? I've never seen an admin edit a blog like that and usually if a blog needs to be deleted, a pm is sent to the blogger asking them to do so, or the blog is deleted and a pm sent explaining why.
So right now on the day he has died you thought to yourself, "Man this is a good time to come into a blog where people are remembering him and tell everyone how much I hated him" You're clearly not sorry either or you wouldn't have posted the comment.
I've been at work all day and the first I heard of Leonard Nimoy's passing was when I came here a little while ago and saw this blog.
You've pretty much summed up everything I would have said about the man Vik and just like you, the effect the character had on me as a child was profound. I had a very difficult childhood (For reasons I won't go into) and Spock was a rock I clung to when life seemed determined like a stormy sea to wash me away. Like you I found this idea of total logic (To coin a phrase from the man himself) "fascinating" I adopted the idea and applied it to almost every area of my life and it's not an exaggeration at all to say that even today I largely owe my way of thinking to that man and that incredibly iconic character.
I want to share a YouTube clip here that demonstrates the humour he had. (Right click the link and open in a new tab)
New Spock V's Old Spock
You did live long Leonard Nimoy, but I wanted you to live forever; I guess as Spock, you probably will.
I have one that's made of white chocolate but unfortunately the last time I tried ejaculating money to impress a women, I hit her in the eye with a heavy one pound coin. Probably should have shot out a penny instead.:lol:
I took your advice Vic and bought the one I love the most some edible panties. I'm wearing them right now.:lol:
Great break down of Valentine's day. I think you have fairly accurately summed up what it's really all about for most people.
I'm going to do something I've never done in a blog before and post one of my poems.
Foolish Selfish Love
I fell in love today and in my heart a light burned.
All those things were mine the things I long for yearned.
I fell in love today as the two of us walked hand in hand.
Nobody else can feel this nobody else could understand.
I fell in love today and knew I would give all I had earned.
Everything would be shared including the things I'd learned.
I fell in love today and our love making made me feel I could fly.
Nothing that ever happens after this will lift me quite as high.
I fell in love today while we danced to the music of the band.
So close to you that time stood still and flowed as slow as sand.
I fell in love today when we walked together down the aisle.
Warmth washed over me when I turned and saw your smile.
I fell in love today because you give me all the things I desire.
Please don't ever take your love and burn it on a pyre.
I truly fell in love today when I looked into my first child's eyes.
The light in my heart grew brighter than before as I heard her tiny sighs.
I truly fell in love today when I loved for nothing in return.
And just like me she will grow and love and grow and slowly learn.
I have no idea why men back then chose to wear suits that were five times too big for them. I used to see people dressed like that and want to ask them, "Did your mum tell you that you were going to grow into that?":lol:
Great to see you back on the blog roll PiratMas
For me the nineties seemed to really lack variety. So much of the music was made simply to dance to but when I try to think of individual tracks now I can't recall very many at all. I did quite like some trance music though, and spent a night in Club UK in London dancing like a lunatic in the hard house section. (I was on acid at the time so that really helped. "Don't do drugs kids, drugs are bad mmkay."):lol:
The decade that I thought was really great was the 80's. There was so much free expression and in some ways it was like the 60's.
I have to admit though you have made me remember a few good songs from the nineties that I'd forgotten about. One band I remembered was "Utah Saints" and the funny video they made for the song Something good (Damn catchy tune as well)
You're using the interwebz devy3 so pretty sure you must have seen some messed up stuff just like the rest of us, and yet it is an image of a starry night and some nice text that elicits from you the phrase "wtf"
I have to admit to being a little nonplussed by that. If you go outside on a clear night and look up you'll see a lot more of those sparkly things in the sky.:lol:
Some of the things that have been said to me in Pm's are truly disgusting. Some really really shocking things. Obviously I have those pm's archived and I read them every now and then just to check that they really are as obscene as I think they are. Of course I take no pleasure in reading that smut. I've found a good way to immunise myself against the filth though, and it's to read it naked and alone in a dimly lit room while I smother honey over my hot rippling golden muscles.
You know what I hate even more than the pornographic text women send me? It's the photos. Yeah I really hate having to look at my collection of those four times a day. It's disgusting.:lol:
(Loved the descriptions of the Mods)
