So, where are you from?

Post by Nicholas the Italian »

For some reason I came here with the conviction people here were mainly American (probably because I developed the idea that every decent piece of software, especially if it has something to do with the internet, must come from the US, and because everybody here speaks a damn good English, and because the "Location" field in the profile seems to be the perfect place to express one's poetical skills with jewels like "just around the corner" or "behind you" or "a point in time and space"), but I suspect I was quite wrong and I'm going to be quite surprised.
So, out of curiosity, except the two devs and a couple of people whose nationality is known, where are you (contributors here, and developers) from?
(And, if the answer is US, where in the US)

Well, it depends on what bodily part you are referring to...
My Brain = Winter Park, Colorado, USA
Body = Music City, USA

My very city was reported just before I opened this topic... also, my nationality is stated in my nickname, so I'm very transparent about it... ;)

Sorry, I don't quite understand what you mean. Given that your body and brain are in the same place (otherwise technology in central America is far more advanced than what I thought), where do you actually live?

PS: they're using, dunno, phpBB0 pre-alpha? ;)
