    David Chapman is my hero. Even though everyone knows he loves hippos. We want to know the secrets of his life!

    Everyone should try Zoints out. I've been a member at David's main site (which turned into a guinea pig for Zoints :p ) for about 1 and 1/2 years now. The forums are great, and Zoints makes the internet a lot better in every way.

    TGO FTW!

    Thanks again for interviewing me Howard, I was very flattered and honored.

    I'm quoting this for two reasons.

    1. To showcase your "missed off" :D

    2. Nutcase huh? Well, if this is insanity, then I don't want to be sane. ;) Heheh. Guilty as charged on the hugs though. You know you want one.

    Blueberry today, please.

    Great interview, loved it.

    Don't know David that well, or for a long time but i will say i am very impressed by both his attitude to the online forum community and the way he conducts 'business'.

    Wish you all the luck with Zoints, although i don't think its needed :)

    Yeah. David Chapman is awesome.

    I've been on LWS for a year. Zoints since it began.

    Thanks to that man, I've made about 20-30 good friends.

    I've actually talked to him a couple of times (doubt he remembers), and he is quite the amicable guy.

    This is a great interview and I pray that Zoints sky rockets to fame and fortune.

    Nice interview TGO, but jesus you are serious these days.(Five bucks Dave replies with a serious post on how much he believes in Zoints and that is why he is so serious.)

    $5.00 please. Actually, just donate it to eff.org.

    Hahah. Well, I threw a couple little jokes in, but yeah, i'm quite a bit more serious when it comes to Zoints :) If it was just me that would get hurt if Zoints failed, then no big deal. But when you have a lot of people counting on you, then you need to take things more serious.

    David, I hope you're going to clean up my desk after I spewed hot coffee all over when I read this. :(

    On a more serious note, great interview. :tup:

    Spoilers still count as posts :)
    I actually googled his quote to see if he got it from somewhere else :p. Turns out he's just damn funny.

    Hi Kathy,

    I hope the dog days have become a little less doggish for you this week :)

    In 1996 I was drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks out of highschool. I graduated and a couple days later was on a plane to AZ. I played a short season of rookie ball and stunk. They thought enough of me despite my poor stats to send me to Instructional League where I kicked all kinds of butt. I then went to spring training where my body fell apart and ended up having to medically retire. I never made it to the majors.

    I also have the bragging rights of being the first to beat Junior Spivey in a prank war :D (you don't want to know how).

    Not once do I believe you told us loyal members on LWS about this.:tisk:

    However, I can forgive you since you had that horrible bout with the devil.

    Cheers on people asking about that....:didi:,
