I know that we have several members of our forum that are big in tech circles.

If you're someone we've heard of, tech-related or not, or you're a part of a big website, let us know who you are!

I.E. I don't know if running this site makes me famous or not, but I'd say, "Hi, I'm Mashugly and I run a pretty popular forum at Insanely Mac." :P

I'm Adam, and I'm a global moderator at AeroXperience forums... we're not huge but we're getting bigger. Hopefully helping out with the WebKit Win32 Project will get me some fame :P

Well, I'm the creator of the iColonels Program Suite. I guess that's something. ;)

Oh, and you can do a Google search for "colonels1020" and find a page full of results.

I got my 15 min. of fame when I was one of the very first that overclocked a 700mhz Duron to 1.2GHz air cooled using the pencil trick back in the day. I think this was at Amdmb Forums in 2001. :( I was famous for about 15 minutes till some jackass' overclocked theirs using liquid nitrogen for cooling. bummer..

Hopefully, when I get to making mods for Q4 again, I will be. I haven't released any, but I'm still working on them.

No, not really.

LOL.

Well, at the time I had really long hair so I kept having people come up to me and tell me I looked like Donna from "That 70's Show", so perhaps that was why. I don't think I did or do now, though. :)

Dude, why didn't you play it out? Then you can say you were famous when you had long hair!

I've been on live TV over the phone 8 times in less than four hours... By the 3rd call, the presenter knew my name and where I lived :)

I've also been on the news, and some other things... I wouldn't say I'm famous though, lol!

"Hi, I'm Tim and I'm a moderator at InsanelyMac.com! :D"

I am not famous.

But I met a lot of famous people to talk to them. My first one was Silvester Stallone in
the end nineties. Followed by several actors and musicians like Jim Carey, Robin
Williams, Kurt Russel, Jerry Weintraub, Backstreet Boys, Frank Farian, Snoop Dog etc.

At some point, it began to bore me :) But 96% of them are really nice persons.
