Hello all!

I've already introduced myself over on this post <http://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=17841>, because it looked like a mob was gathering over at ye olde pitchfork and torch emporium, and I needed to do something quick. For your convenience, I'll repost that here:

[quote="Cosmicjive"]

Okay, clearly I need to say something before the rest of you discover that I'm a backson come to put holes in your socks...

My name is Jeff, and I have a background in technical support. I'm also a software developer, writer, actor, bad dancer, and occasional zombie. By happy coincidence, these are also the prerequisites for working at L&L.

I am unfamiliar to most of you because until now I have always preferred to lurk in the shadows. As such, Keith put me through a rigorous trial to prove that I was up to the task. Evidently I passed, because he has now brought me on board. I'm not suppose to say exactly what the test involved, but when I close my eyes, I swear I can still feel the charred flesh dropping off my hand. I must not fear.

I began fiddling with Scrivener in early 2009 and immediately became completely enamored with the product. A little too enamored (my fiance has had words with me). When I heard that there might be an opportunity to work with these amazing people, I had to jump at the chance.

Oh, wait. I already got the job. I don't need to suck up anymore.

It was the money.

Now, onto new business. There has been some speculation about my age. All I will say is that your fearless leader Keith and I could have been in the same class in school -- aside from the fact that we were on different sides of the planet. And my dear Floss, while I very much enjoy David Lynch's fine film, I've also read Dune. This is a writer's forum, after all ;)

As for the warnings about the ladies, well, I'm afraid I'm taken. Or at least I will be. In 78 days. I think I need a drink.

-Jeff

KB,

1. You are officially banned from starting any threads. You break BBCode for anyone who is not you.
2. Why do you think they are "zombie" dance moves? Imagine what they were before!

Rather telling, don't you think...that, young Jeffrey, refers to, young Kevin, as Y-O-U-R leader, and not...our leader...?!!! P'rhaps he is an Alien, after all, and not one of us at all.

Well, let's just say that one of the reasons Jeff got the job was that along with his CV he provided video evidence of himself dancing to Thriller. :)

I believe *that* needs to be posted in the "who we are" section.

Dear Little Woolly-Pully,
All cats have 'Leaders', as and when we want them. Gullible humans all, without exception. There are times when we may have multiple Leaders, often, in opposing camps. As long as they can meet a need, we let them role play.
However, in this case, expediency dictates that I ally myself with the human element aboard Scrivener, in order to make the, a) the statement... 'as Y-O-U-R leader, and not...our leader...?!!!'...and b)accusations of Alien-ism.<---that's a Fluffism:-)

Occasional zombie...does this mean you go munching on brains when the coffee gets too low?
