Hey y'all! I saw this yesterday morning, but I had to fly down to San Antonio for the holidays. Ok, here are the first 30, I've got a busy day ahead of me shopping :)

Lets see, where to begin.... How about at number 1?

1. I was working for an adult affiliate program a few years back, and there is a surprisingly tight knit community for webmasters. Since I don't run any adult sites myself, I googled for non-adult webmaster board, and OZZU came up first.

2. I don't gamble much. A fool and his money are soon parted. Occasionally, I'll hit some quarter slots, but not very often, and I won't spend more than 5 or 10 bucks in them.

3. I do standard web development, php/html/css/javascript mostly. I have also started getting into flash.

4. If you are a tourist, yes. If you live here, it's just like any other town.

5. Has to be php, mostly because of it's versatility.

6. Mapfiend.net started back in about 1999-2000. I was playing Everquest, and there existed a cheat program called ShowEQ. It used text based vector maps. Not everyone could run ShowEQ, so I wrote a small script that would display the maps as gif images on displayed them on my guild website. About 3 years later, Sony added their own cartography system to EQ, and I rewrote the display to use their format. It's grown ever since.

7. I usually keep a browser on OZZU when I'm on the computer. I just hate having to type that long domain every time :P

8. Hero? I may have to get back to this one. There are people I admire, but I can't think of anyone that I would consider a hero off the top of my head.

9. My life motto is "Roll with the punches." In this day and age, you have to stay sharp and keep pace with changing technology and ideas. Adapt or die.

10. As I mentioned, I flew home yesterday, so that's my plan :) Spend Christmas with the family.

11. Mmmm, spam. Well, there's my personal site http://www.kgreene.com, there's http://www.not.net (a url shortener / email hider) http://www.moonstruckgames.com and that's all I can think of right now.

12. Ski Lodge. I used to be in the Ski Club in High School and love skiing. The closest I've come to surfing is sail boarding.

13. Inspiration hits me at the oddest times. It wakes me up in the middle of the night, or blindsides me when I'm trying to troubleshoot a completely unrelated problem. My mind is a funny beast.

14. Lets see: Serving in the Army from 88-91 in Berlin when the wall fell. That was an exciting time in my life. It's not so much an accomplishment as it is a "I was there for a part of history"

15: $40

16. I smoke. Blech.

17. I'm not a mean-spirited person. The meanest thing I have ever done is probably call someone a name.

18. I have very flexible fingers and double jointed thumbs, and I'm ambidextrous.

19. I enjoy WATCHING lots of sports. Seriously, I don't exercise much in the traditional sense of the word, but I'm not a couch potato. I do a lot of walking.

20. Sharks. Not irrationally so, but I wanted to be a marine biologist when I was a kid. Until my dad took me to see Jaws.

21. Peanutbutter-jelly time :)

22. Happy. I'm a good natured person most of the time, and can find humor in most situations.

23. Watch Food Network :)

24. Burnt Sienna. I just like saying that. It's fun.

25. Bass guitar, models, electronics, cooking, gaming.

26. IceCold or Punk_Puke (not sure if they've been done or not)

27. Anything Latin. Tango more so than the others. My ex-wife is a dance instructor (ballroom and latin)

28. Well, I'm home for the first time in a few years, so I'm excited to see some old friends and family.

29. Hmm, surprise. Not sure if there is anything. I'm just a run of the mill average geek.

30. I picked the nickname ScienceofSpock because I'm a Trek fan (obviously) and I love science and technology. I think of myself as a rational, analytical person, like Spock but with emotions :P

I'll get the rest later this afternoon.

63. Have you ever had to go to a hospital (sick)?

64. If yes, why and what for?

65. If you had 1 billion dollars, what would you spend it on and why? :P

66. Finish this statement: I would love to learn how to ...

Ok, next batch of questions:

31. Teal'c would win, physically. However, without going into to much detail, and trying not to sound too much like a geek, I don't think they would solve their differences physically :)

32. Mostly flash stuff (I'm learning), but I do read most of the articles on science.slashdot.org.

33. No.

34. Well, right now they just have an understanding that they plan to cooperate in the future, so it's not really a partnership just yet, but it sounds interesting.

35. Well, I'm not sure I'd have a name for it, but the perfect operating system would do away with the current idea of the user interface, and in particular the the need to force users into a specific paradigm. In my perfect OS, users wouldn't *need* to use a mouse or keyboard, but they could if they wanted. Or they could us voice command, or gestures, or any combination of the above. The perfect OS isn't something that the user would be able to (or even need to) identify directly. It would just work, regardless.

36a. Try again (but keep it within reason)
36b. Check the owners manual.

37. I'm a notorious snoozer.

38. I think most people have a price, but it changes (or disappears completely) based on the situation.

39. I'd like to think I have enough principle to *not* have a price, but the truth is that I simply haven't been in a situation to find out what it is yet.

40. Not so much jumped, I just let it ring, not thinking it was mine. (I tend to keep my ringer on low)

41. I'm more of a beef guy, so probably not. Unless they were hot wings, then I'd be going to jail for sure.

42. *reserved*

43. Illegalize corporate lobbying.

44. Science demands it.

45. Don't ask me for my credit card number.

46. Don't ask me that question :P

47. Miniature Doberman. (no, I don't have one. I have a Walker Cooning Tree Hound)

48. Both.

49. Only what I've read in the papers :)

50. 50" Toshiba HD (1080i) projection with DLP

51. My unorganized box of family photos that goes back 3 generations.

52. The snickers commercial with the guitar playing guy. It was cute at first, until they started playing it twice per break.

53. um, both. I'm ambidextrous, so I don't really have a dominant side of the brain. Sometimes this works to my advantage, other times it causes conflict.

54. Cigarettes, but I'm going to quit on my birthday in Feb.

55. I've never even seen a Holden in person, but given my history with Ford vehicles, I'll take the Holden.

56. Toyota.

57. Male friends, but only by a few.

58. X Box 360, PS2, Dreamcast currently, and many many PC games.

59. FF2.

60. Most developer extensions, no themes.

61. Beer coasters. When I was living in Germany, I used to collect them every place I went. I currently have well over 1000 different ones.

62. Break up Microsoft. Not because I dislike them, but because I think their own needs would best be served as separate companies instead of one giant behemoth.

63. Yes.

64. When I was stationed in Berlin, I had to spend a week in the hospital for ITP (Immunothrombocytopenia). It's like hemophelia, only temporary. It was incredibly BORING. I didn't feel sick at all, but they treated me like I was suicidal. ITP makes your blood not clot, so ANY injury could cause you to bleed to death. I had to write with a marker. They wouldn't let me have pens or pencils, and I couldn't shave.

65. If I had a billion dollars, I would probably keep a few million in the bank, then donate the rest to different charities. There's no way in hell I'd be able to spend 1 billion dollars on myself.

66. Fly.

IceCold has already been done as a GTKY victim and I can't seem to find Punk_Puke's profile. Are you sure that's his nickname?
