  Are any of you here friends/acquaintance/intimate lovers/online sex fiends with other GTers?

Or are we mostly separate but equal?

  The only current GTers I have ever met are Kira and Jenn (that I know of) and that was arranged when I was on a student exchange in Illinois at 17. We went to the Chicago art museum (gallery?) and it was lovely :)

I got introduced to this site when I was 14 by a GT friend who I slept with and things went downhill (my fault mostly I was somewhat immature and had no idea how things or people worked). He never posted, or perhaps did one or twice, but if he's watching, hello! We haven't spoken since I was about 16 I think.

Funny how life is!

  I have never met a GTer.
I'm not opposed to it, but I think it would make me really nervous.

I do occasionally chat online with a few of you. Mostly just one of you now (you know who you are).

  Well I've managed to get a few people involved Jasco, Paulo, Anubis, Billy Pilgrim himself and i'm sure one or two others.

Only Bill seems to have stuck around though i know Paulo and Jasco are friends with some people on the book of faces.

I therefore have never met anyone through GT but have introduced people to the site.

I always wanted to meet GTers though, the Uk members are either in Scotland or so rare i miss them. There was Beetlebum when she was in Oxford but sadly i missed out on the opportunity to ever arrange a meet, also once i nearly met Christophe when he came to London but i couldn't justify the expense then to go to the Smoke for a GT event.

Addi once walked the same streets as i do now though, his essence is still in Cardiff. Like the ghost of Tom Joad (Or Tom Jones if we want to be Welsh about it).

It's always been a dream of mine to get rich and arrange a GT party somewhere. I know it would be difficult but if i had the wealth i'd pay to get people together.

Is that kind of like my smell?
Seems so very long ago.

Ditto.
You'd think at least one of one of us would get stinkin' rich and be able to pull something off like that. The gods must be conspiring against us. With my luck it'll probably happen down the road...when I'm off in some nursing home and can't remember my name.

Yes, I've met a GTer in the past.
No, it wasn't choke.

  I met a GTer! Jenn, when I was in Vancouver for the Olympics.

I've met other GTers in my dreams.

  And, yes, I consider some GTers my friends.

  Never met a GTer. Maybe in the future.

  Apparently that night we spent in Tangier meant nothing to you then, Mark : (

Dreams..several dreams that have had GTers in them

  I've met Puck and Mouse but Mouse is my friend so kinda cheating there... :P I would love a GT meet up I would love to meet Mesh and Addi and the rest :) Just as long as politics aren't talked about I think everybody would get along.

  I'm sure we'd be fine so long as Hif didn't have access to links he's been e-mailed.

Nope, Tiff. That must have been some other Addi. I would have remembered your voice.

in my old gt all-nighters, I'd nod off and have smoky half-dreams of the gt cafe

  Back in the days before internet access at home was a given (2001) i used to suffer from some serious insomnia. Some nights i would leave my house at 3 am, walk upto the university buildings and go to the 24 hour IT lab.

I guess it must have been for foreign students to speak to people back home because there was always someone with a headset chatting away in Spanish or Cantonese.

apart from that there were the nerdlingers who played on primitive online games, the drinkers, who after a solid night of boozing in their flats, houses or halls of residence had stumbled down here to e-apologise to people. Then there were the occaisonal pervs who either took a CD-rom with them to fill with porn to take to their rooms or the more enterprising ones simply wanked where they were (they were thankfully swiftly removed).

Among these people i did some of my finest early GTing, first on the GT question thingy then on the forum proper. Hell it might even have been because i was up so late i managed to be first person to write on the boards here, syncronised by insomnia to Dingapore time!!

Luckily the next year i got net access in my house so it became a whole lot easier and and allowed me to combine the cultures of all the people into one man, an insomniac, pervert, nerdlinger who sat up all night jabbering away in foreign languages on a headset to nowhere.

  Haha that was awesome.

I used to sit on our family computer on GT from the ripe old age of 14. Since then I have sat on American host family and school computers, NZ university lab computers (with many of the same experiences as you Mat) and my own laptop in my room which is roughly one thousand years old. And in a few months I'll be sitting in Japan and still visiting.

I think the only other websites I ever visited before this one were hotmail, livejournal, and neopets!
