Yes, I really did call my Mayor's office and ask if I could talk to him on camera and, yes, I really did do it. Started out as brain crack, as these things generally do, and then I had to make it real in order to get it out of my head.
Seattle and Portland Shows:
Wednesday, March 23 -- Nerds & Music (with Hank Green & Mike Phirman)
The Triple Door, Seattle, WA -- 7:30 pm
(I am so happy about this but after this long day I am so tired that I don't really have the energy to care so much about my writing, so if you see something wrong about this just ignore it!)
Feels kinda like when finding Waldo but that guy is so much easier to spot. Okay so after my Japanese class today I walked past a girl that’s in the year below me and on the floor next to her I saw a paperback version of Paper Towns. I had to rush because I had…
I LOVE the chat. I've been a member here for like three days, and it's already like I know so many! Okay, about eight people I reckognize in the chat, but still!
Wether it's about girls/boys, undressing or discussing stuff, it's always fun to read what everyone say.
But the best part is, most certainly, that everyone understands nerdfighter sayings... my friends from school doesn't. If I say French the Llama, or DFTBA or talks about puppysized elephants, they look at me…
hello, Nerdfighters. I'm just going to tell you what I'm doing:)
I just got back from Pat Catan's (craft store in PA)and got some awesome green soft yarn and i am crocheting some decorations for my room. I've found that crocheting is a good hobby, but not when you only know how to do a chain and nothing else. I'm sure that ill find some use for the already six foot long chain. I've made most of this chain while sitting in front of the computer with Brotherhood 2.0 on… Continue
So I've been working on a series of automatic moderation tools to put in the new chat, and I've come across an interesting dilemma. What actually needs to be filtered? And I'm not just on about words, here. There's also links, and topics, and phrases. The reason this is so difficult... Anyone? Well, in a nutshell, it's you lot. The average user. The people who speak in chat. You never really complain about anything until after preventive action has been taken.
(I'm reposting my application from here to clarify that I'm still available for the position of ningmaster. I am now taking a few college courses on the side, but they all are computer related, and mostly self study, so I can still be around. Other than that, the rest of this blog remains both accurate and slightly odd.)…
Okay guys, as many of the chat regulars will know by now, I'll be developing a new Ning chat over the next few days. Obviously I'd like to get it right, so I figured the best way to make sure everyone's happy is to find out exactly what people want from the chat. Comment here with your suggestions, and as long as they're not silly or over the top, I'll add them to the list.
I officially joined the ranks of Nerdfighteria today. One of the first things that happened was that someone completely random sent me a friend request and then I looked at the chat. They were talking about something...odd. I forgot to write it down, so I can't remember now what it was. Then the chat turned to a story by my next friend on the site about the origin of her username. Then everyone started talking about drugs, smoking, drugs, sports, sexuality, dropping snow into your bedroom and… Continue

Ladies and girls, this is the last time I will ever be on this website for I find your depiction of nerds to be incorrect and ridiculous (its more ridiculous than the shoddy piece of hollowvision that is Hollyoaks).
Merry Christmas "nerds".
I hope you find time between chatting to each other, about all your cool stuff (likely including things such as "shiz" and this "B20" thing) and sleeping (about the only genuinely interesting thing you lot do), to read this blog… Continue
Good Evening Nerdfightaria!!!
You will have to forgive me, as this is more or less the first blog I have ever really written, and it is a rather loaded one. So let us get right down to business shall we? Great!
First of all, it is December. This means Finals, Holidays and, I think it fair to say, a good deal of stress for just about everyone. None of us can deny that this time of year is hectic as all get out. That being said, none of us are immune. I think we are all aware of… Continue
So, as you might already know (you have been reading, haven't you? HAVEN'T YOU?!), I'm somewhat recently separated from the two things in the world most precious to me - Bunny-hime and Fatbaby - which has been the most painful experience of my life (right next to leaving behind my first son and physically giving away my only daughter, with honorable mention going to being torn from my sibling-children at the tender age of 13). It's been a while, and there have been countless attempts to get… Continue
So, a skyscraper - with all the rooms we imagine we're in when we go on chat. I might get round to drawing plans, if I can be bothered. My first chat was on the top of the building. It was dark and windy, broken glass everywhere... Imagine the scene in The Dark Knight where the Joker and Batman are on the top of that building. My second chat was in a back alley around the corner of that building. Corridors, countless rooms...
Please comment with detailed descriptions of your rooms.

OK, I'm not really sure how to put this but here it goes.
I'm UberFridgeKing I'm 22 and this is my application for chat Ning-master.
I have been a nerd-fighter for about a year and in that time I have spent most of my time on the chat so I have. In the time since I joined I have noticed that there have been more and more people who arrive and disturb the chat from being the normal fun newcomer friendly place it should be. I like talking to everyone on the chat and there… Continue
