Verification Question
« on: 10-19-2011 -- 08:02:16 »
Hmmm ... I just finished registering, and had kept getting rejected for answering the verification question wrong. For cryin' out loud, I thought that 33 = 27!  When I finally answered 'correctly' with 9, I was allowed to join the forum!

It was a test, yeah, that's it, a test.  And you passed.  Of course I am kidding.  Also, welcome.

Hahahaha  yeah, my bad.  I screwed that one up.  Can't believe it took this long for someone to find it...

It's fixed now.  Thanks bixlives.

Thx. I looked at my post and realized that I'm a pinger again. Which is appropriate, since I'm pretty much bald now ツ.
