    There doesn't seem to be one and I happen to be curious as to where most come from, and what forums we have migrated from.

    I happen to be from Australia and I stumbled across a link for this place somewhere, I can't recall where. I've been a moderator on Namepros, loved wicked fire where I had two handles (learningcurve and some other guy that posted pretty pictures).

    I figure a large number of you are from the States, but I know we have a Swiss rep and a few members from the Asian region.

    Ohhh, you're Suddenly_Ass? Cool. :)

    I'm Kiopa_Matt from WF. I got banned after I pissed Jon off by telling him he's going to destroy the board by putting up a pay wall, which sure enough, is exactly what happened.

    I'm in Thailand. Bounce back to Canada once in a while to visit my family, but for the most part, am happy here. Regardless of where in the world I am, I'm stuck behind computer typing code, so what the hell, might as well do it from the tropics.

    Hi everyone! I'm cardine, and I've been a member of a number of forums over the years. I was most active on WF, but I also have accounts on pretty much every other forum in the industry.

    I live in Baltimore Maryland, and I found out about Apex Forum by creating it!

    I heard ~10 USD a day gets you a beach front villa, food, and a daily massage, is that true?

    No. It's about $2500/month for me to live a decent life here, and I'm not in a tourist area. I'm in one of the cheap areas,

    I've never been to Thailand but I've been to other tropical locales like Bali and Fiji. How do you deal with the damn humidity? It can feel like walking into a wall in those countries.

    @cardine Are you seriously only 23? Damn, I wish I had your skills at that age. :)

    Well, right now it's mid-winter, so the weather is absolutely beautiful. Mid 30s during the day, low 20s at night (celsius), so you couldn't ask for better weather. Don't even need a fan, let alone an air-conditioner.

    There's only about 6 - 8 weeks a year where the heat is brutal, and gets to mid 40s during the day. During then, not much you can do. Drink at least 4L of water a day, don't get fat, keep your hair short, eat spicy food to keep your pores open, stay close to a fan and/or air conditioner, and don't go outside in the afternoon -- run your errands early morning or late at night. Aside from that, not much you can do except suck it up, and wait it out. :)

    MSTeacher from a couple other forums. I grew up in Maine, built houses and furniture in Maine, taught middle school in Maine, learned to make internet monies in Maine, managed a non-profit in Vermont, and recently traveled Europe and Asia for two years. I'm currently back in Maine and will be for the next few months. I enjoy sultry jazz, long walks on the beach and talking dirty to my computer when the fan makes weird noises.

    I had a feeling I knew you from WickedFire but I couldn't quite pinpoint who you were. Great to see you here, especially now that I know who you are :)

    That's depressing - I'm old enough to be your mother - I have a daughter who is 23. LOL

    I'm a Kiwi - living in Rotorua NZ. Home of the Geysers.

    Hi everyone, been reading lots of posts today and so impressed by all of the great information that is being freely shared!
    I have been dabbling in IM on and off since 1999 - so yes I am older than 23!
    I live in sunny QLD in Australia, and have just resigned from my day job (been there almost 17 years) and have about 6 weeks until I start my new job so thought I would give IM a go full-time for a while
