Haha, I find this quite comic—from that ridiculous 'fingering' site (no, it's not that kind of fingering; don't bother going there):

Attention ! Le SPAM (envoie de messages en masse) est formellement interdit.
L’utilisation d’url masquée et de redirection n’est pas autorisée.
Toute personne ne respectant pas ces règles se verra bannir du site.
I guess c3dlc gets off (on their side) because of their rather strange definition of spam...

Actually, I have some knowledge in architecture. I used to make floor plans in 6th grade. I almost finished a huge Georgian. Then the mac came along. I think I made the best choice, don't you, Wes Montgomery. BTW saab, is that other handle Yes, as in Squire, Wakeman, Howe, Bruford, and Anderson, or as in the word of acknowledgement?

I think the better question here is: Hendrix, Clapton, Page, or Beck?
I choose Page.

I think I made the best choice, don't you, Wes Montgomery. BTW saab, is that other handle Yes, as in Squire, Wakeman, Howe, Bruford, and Anderson, or as in the word of acknowledgement?
I happen to like the rock band Yes very much. So, that's a part of it.

And Wes is way, way cool. And all my CAD is done on the Mac.

I think the better question here is: Hendrix, Clapton, Page, or Beck?
I choose Page.
If we stick to rock guitarists, I think any one of those four would do.

I think jazz guitarists trump rock guitarists any day.
Hello from the State of Independence

Now I think 20 is young (too) and unexperienced, but 40 is by no means old. Its a great age, only 35 was better (slightly).
