    Default personal question for Eranga

    You don't have to answer this. On the Internet, no one knows if you are a dog.

    Is that a photo of you as your avatar? Or just some great looking model that you like? For all I know, you could be a typical geek, i.e. a guy.

    BTW, my avatar is not a photo of me. its my grandfather.
    Thanks
    Pat

    Well, I really am a Captain.. or former, you might say. :)

    Speaking for Eranga - that's Jessica Alba in his avatar.

    Yes fishtoprecords, as Captain says that is a photo of Jessica Alba, one of an actress I like to see in movies. :) I just use it, nothing special.

    And I know that lots of members in our community confused because that photo, that they think it's my real photo. :) Think that I'm a gal. ;)

    Well, she is beautiful.

    Too much to ask that a geek be a beautiful woman, but Veronica Belmont, of Tekzilla comes close. Not movie star beautiful, but cute, smart, funny, etc.

    Default Erenga, the mystery man.

    Hello Erenga

    I also have a few questions:
    1. Why do you reply in green?
    2. What does Erenga mean, or is it a name?

    I understand your avatar now. ;)

    I don't agree with the usage of that term. I think that if someone is talented in something but they do not fit in well, then he or she should not be the one suffering for it. :eek:

    Thanks ;)

    Is it me, or does Nick not make a whole lot of sense... ? And what is the point of this picture?

    Maybe I'm the one off in space... but thankfully this is in the nosebleed section of the forums; otherwise I would get a little suspicious.

    What's your background Nick?

    Deleted the post, it is not hard for me to sort it out but if it is this hard I just deleted the post.

    And what is the point of this picture?
    Pleasant to look at, discussion had ranged to Eranga's avatar.

    You're not off in space, I am. In fact the pic is pulled from some text that really would blow everyone's mind. I softened it for posting.

    What's your background Nick?

    Hi friends,

    Actually green is the color I like most, dark green. It's really nice though. :)

    'Eranga' that's my first name. Unfortunately it doesn't have a direct meaning. But some people says, it says that 'Directing to future' I don't is that correct no :cool:

    Hi Eku,

    This is not my blog. I don't have a blog at the time, and still working on my own website in near future.

    This is someone else blog, who has the same name as me. It's typical here in Sri Lanka. You know, in my school in same class three of have same first name as 'Eranga', including me. ;)

    So Eranga there is like Jessica for girls about 15 yeras ago, where it seemed like 20% of the girls had the same name. Interesting how naming has cycles.

    Sanjeev, why did you think that is necessary. In a profile there should have hide/unhide option if we added Gender field. So still it's possible to hide the gender.

    Do u ppl think its really necessary to make the gender visible?

    I dont feel so.Its indivisual interest, guys may not mind but few girls do sometimes i count myself in that too..

    We are here to help others and get help when required, in that case it really doesnt matter isnt it?

    I agree with Niveditha. Gender is not important. Thank you, Eranga, for lifting the fog. I've been wondering about your green replies for a year now. I thought you had green fingers! ;)

    On the internet, some folks want to hide the fact that they are dogs.

    Gender, age, location, etc. are all optional.
