Post 3+ Months Ago

I'm honored :o

1. How did you come across ozzu.com?
A google search I think. I don't remember honestly :P

2. What's your avatar all about?
Well, It's a bag of Doritos chips fried above the BBQ.

3. Where in Holland are you located?
Amersfoort. It's in the middle ;)

4. Your profile states you know Latin. Where did you pick that up and how fluent are you in it?
On the Gymnasium (actually, I'm still on that school). I'm not so fluent. You don't really learn to speak Latin. You only translate old texts. Most of the time it's boring, but the thought that you're are translating something that someone (like caesar or trajanus) wrote thousands of years ago is interesting.


5. Tell us about http://www.onyx-design.net/
It used to be my portfolio, but I added a blog a few months ago. I was writing some posts for it and I got a lot of visitors, but I got busy with school last months so I kind of abused it. I have a lot of new plans though :D

6. What's the meaning behind your nickname?
My name is Fabian. A while I go I was playing some kind of shooter game and I called my self 'The Fabinator', as in terminator :P. I started to use the name for forums and such too. Although I use Onyx more nowadays.

7. What did you do this past weekend?
I just came back from holiday in croatia. So most of the time I spent unpacking my

8. Tell us about your current living arrangements. (Who you live with, in a house/apartment, etc)
I live with my parents and brother in a house downtown.

9. Who did you wish you were when you were a kid?
Tough one.. I always wanted to be an Archaeologist. I was obsessed by dinosaurs.

10. Tell us something about your self that we might find surprising.
Uhm.. I'm 15 years old. But you already know that don't you.. Can't think of something else at the moment.

11. What are you listening to right now?
My brother sneezed and a car driving through the street. I'm not listening music right know. I think it's hard to concentrate on something when listening music.

12. What kind of car (or bike, I know how bike friendly the Dutch are) do you drive? (post a photo!)
I don't drive any car. My bike isn't very special. Just a second hand bike to drive to school. It looks a bit like this one:
Image

13. What celebrity, alive or dead, would you like to go out for lunch with and pick their brain?
Einstein, Eric Meyer,

14. What one song on the top charts circulating right now can you not stand?
CAN YOU HEAR ME - enrique iglesias. I've heard that one way to much

15. Name 5 of your pet peeves.
I've never heard that expression before :P is it something I annoy people with? or something people annoy me with?

16. Guilty pleasures & bad habits (cigarettes, gum, candy, etc) Give us the dirt!
- candy :P

17. Fave style of music.
Tough one. Depends on my mood. Either dance/house or rock.

18. DO you get along with your parents?
Sometimes

19. What are you up to today?
I've made a lay-out for a new website and added some minor things an e-commerce website I'm working on (http://www.gluten-vrij.nl) for gluten-free products.

20. Have you traveled much outside the Netherlands?
Yeah. France, Belgium, Italy, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Greek, Austria, Swiss, Ireland, UK, Slovenia, Croatia. I just never went out of europe.

21. What are some of your hobbies?
Webdesign (of course), reading, badminton, photography, chilling with friends, going out

22. Do you have any pets?
We only have fish. My brother is allergic for every kind of fur, so that makes it hard to have a pet.

23. Do you sing in the shower?
Sometimes, but very quietly :P

24. What sport are you watching on the Olympics? If you're following the Olympics.
Badminton :) Swimming and the summaries everyday.

25. Do you have any siblings?
One little brother.

26. How many computers do you own?
1. A Packerd Bell iStart, with AMD sempron 3400+, 2GB of RAM, a 512MB video card and 160GB harddisk, with 500GB external. I was very proud when I bought it; it was one of the first things I bought with just my own money.

27. What do you do to stay in shape? Or do you do anything at all? :P I play badminton 3 times a week, about 7 hours in total. That's all I need to do :)

28. What's the craziest thing you'd do for 1 million $?
dollars are getting less worth every day so I have to think quick before it is worth nothing :P
What about surviving a few weeks on an inhabited island?

29. What are you afraid of?
nothing, really. Except losing my dear friends and such things.

30. What was the last thing you searched through google?
"what is pet peeves"

31. What do think of the future? Is the world getting better, or getting worse?
Worse :P

32. What was the last gift you bought for a parent?
A TomTom navigation system for my father. He got 50 a few weeks ago.

33. Would you want to be the prime minister of your country?
I don't like politics that much, but I would like to try for one day. A lot of politicians in my country are a bit strange. Have you heard of Geert Wilders. He has an anti-muslim campaign and he also made an anti-muslim movie. They said, that if he had told such thing about Jews, he would be convicted for Antisemitism. And there is Rita Verdonk who wants all immigrants to leave the country.

34. What's the most awful thing you've ever eaten?
A sort of japanese fruit. But it was dried in oil and I got one euro if I ate one. I regret that. It was salt and sour in the same time. And I had to drink 3 glasses of water before the taste was gone.

35. Blondes, brunettes or red-heads?
Blondes

36. If you were given the choice of becoming the new Netherlands' president, would you accept the position?
Maybe.. It's a lot of responsibility but it could be fun :P

37. Favorite colour?
I used to be orange. Now I think it's red or blue.

38. Favorite food?
Pannenkoeken (Pancakes)

39. What is the legal drinking age of your country?
Sixteen, but I don't follow that rule. It can be bypassed very easily.

40. Denkt u dat iemand anders dit kan begrijpen?
Nee, ik denk van niet. lol

yes that's it ... This is my explanation ...

I'm just saying that the spelling is the same aswell ... and in english it's not ...

A big forum (like ozzu) or big developer/designer blog like css-tricks, nettuts or webdesignerwall. I would love to interact with a community that way.
