Hey, tried to give you a friendly message with the request, but it vanished... Saw you were new, so welcome aboard! Friends don't usually socialize too much on here (at least not this friend)... but it'll look nice on your wall, right? =P
Forums are kind of dead, but I like them. I like dead stuff, you? ...
