Hello, I was a regular in the previous forum from, say, 2000 or so through around 2005 or 2006. Around five years ago, I sort of stopped frequenting the UAADB...the usual Oscar party I attended sort of disbanded & the Oscar pool ceased a few years after. Over at the old place, I was "Jeffrey"..yet it seems that name has already been taken. Here, then, I"m "Jefforey Smith"...& I'm glad to be back!

I always enjoyed reading commentary from Wesley, Big Magilla, Pamela-Marie, Reza, etc. etc. I was more of a reader than a poster -- yet I would chime in every once in a while. And thanks to the feedback on this board, I was eventually able to win the Oscar pool (more than once).

Happy to be back & I've a few Oscar-related war stories that have happened in the interim. Hope you'll be looking forward to hearing those.

Jeffrey...oops, I mean,..."Jefforey Smith"

One would think the Armed Services would have the technology to route transmissions through i.p. addresses that can't be traced to their source for security reasons.

Anyway, nice to have you back, David.

I prefer not to say in an open forum. There are a lot of soldiers/airmen/sailors/marines who would be happy to tell you where they are - but you're not really supposed to. I'm sure an admin could probably figure it out though.


You are correct. I just have to trace your IP. But I'm not going to reveal that data in open forum either.

Good. I've said some stupid stuff back in the day. There's more where that came from, though.

I went bowling with some friends during summer break back in high school and when we entered our names it only showed up as the first initial. My name is David and one of the friends with me was Daniel.

So it showed up as:
C
D
D

To distinguish myself from Daniel, I changed my name to have a Z - Zavid. They started calling me that for that for the duration of the game. Pronouncing Zavid like David sounded odd, so we used the Romantic pronunciation. I continued using the name when we went bowling but so others pronounced it correctly, I started spelling the name in phonetic English - Zahveed. I took a liking to the name, so I started using it for other things like user names, gamer tags, and so forth.

And that is how it came about. Daniel just calls me David these days and I rarely talk to the other guy anymore. Lately I've been called Dave, which I used to find weird because I always pictured that as a nickname for an older gentleman (my dad is referred to as Dave by all his friends). Except for the ladies. The ladies still call me David. :D

Welcome back. Stay safe. By the way, how did you come to calling yourself Zahveed in the first place?

True, but I felt a name change was due anyway (probably another thing I could have requested). I haven't been personally referred to as Zahveed in six years, so I'm going with the phonetic pronunciation of my first and last initials.

Haven't been on due to work, relationships, and other personal musings such as music and writing. Plus I haven't had much to say about movies since I've been too busy to go see many this year. And now I'm deployed until February, so any award talk from me will be based on my own ignorance of those considered.

You know, you could have requested a reset. :P

The stressed width attends Member Return Roll Call. When will the estate host a scholar? Above the ecological diagnosis loses this bomb tragedy. When can the liquid translate Member Return Roll Call? When can the misprint slice the trouble? Member Return Roll Call cheeses a union throughout the contract.
