yeah, yea... a tall smart one that lives in Atlanta GA; who will teach me how to play PS3 games; likes dogs, bunnies & most animals and you must have your own place to live.

There is more but this is good for a start.

Oh yeah... Any race is good for me and over 30 yrs old.

How to determine whether you have tech on the brain more than dating?

You immediately see "ISO" as "Intl Stds Org," and ponder the humor of an 'ISO geek guy' (a comparable RFC for that would be just fine in 35 days).

As such, I clicked on this, expecting much levity involving parameters galore, and after much head scratching, realized it was "In Search Of."

Oh.


P.S. Urgent heads' up...it looks like your homepage has been compromised. Not caring terribly much for Flash, I looked at the source, and it's not a pretty picture. That, or you're a pretty raunchy SEO...

And here I was thinking "disk image of a geeky guy" upon seeing it...no jokes about mounting, please! [Razz]

It would never occur to me that ISO meant *anything* other than International Standards Organization. Any other use is just wrong.

I dunno, whenever I see the letters ISO, I think of the settings on my camera [crazy]

Good luck on your hunt! I have heard of LOTS of people meeting significant others on these here forums:)

Well, the ISO on either a camera or a disk image is because it's shorthand for the ISO standards for those things. [Razz] (ISO5800:1987 & ISO9660, respectively [I knew the latter, the former is from Wikipedia)

And qf, I share the sentiment, but trolling through CL is a pasttime of mine, in a sort of MST3K style review with some friends...

Oddly enough, I immediately knew that ISO meant "in search of", but my gaming brain takes over and flips it to "LFG". For the non-gamer types, it's "looking for group", and somehow I doubt this nice woman is probably into that... And yes, I'm very happy to have broken my Warcraft addiction.
