That was a coincidence, actually. I had never heard of Interference before then, but I lost my job in early December (yeah, three weeks before the holidays - Merry fuckin' Christmas to me!) and was at home bored when I stumbled across it for the first time.

And the rest is history.

Morning, Vazza.

Yeah, definitely.

It's quite amusing, though.

So not only did you lose your job, but you also lost your real life by finding Interference.

I found this place by the most arse-backward way. I was looking for U2 lyrics online and some generalised lyrics database linked to Interference's old lyrics section. I didn't actually fully realise this; I obviously knew the site's URL had changed, but for all I knew, it was just another multi-band lyrics site. Then I noticed all the links to other lyrics were just U2. I returned a few times to check out some more lyrics, and one day in a fit of boredom clicked the "forums" link down the bottom to see if it was just a generalised lyrics forum or U2 specific.

And to steal the cliche, the rest is history.

Especially when they act like they totally know Interference and are good friends with everyone.

Hey, it helped make those six months of unemployment go by faster, especially when the tour started.

RIP Screwtape's enemies of art thread.

I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did.

And then you were disappointed when you found a new job and had to tear yourself away from Interference?

Woah, it got shut down now? I thought it had already died a natural death!

When I first started working here, and I read the Internet/Email policy and how it is supposed to be for "business purposes only", I was very careful. I used to go on during lunch and random short breaks.

Now I'm on all the time when it's slow.

My high school claimed it monitored Internet usage, so I was paranoid that they'd catch me on Interference or what was then elevation-tour.com (looong before I actually worked on the site!) during my study periods. The IT guys never caught me and I suspect didn't give a shit; the library staff did a couple of times.

Two years ago, my managers noticed that I seemed to be online more than I should, so I actually received a warning at the time.

I'm still on a lot, but I know when I can go on and when I can't now.

I must admit, I'm sometimes glad I don't have a laptop to take to lectures and tutorials, since I'd probably hop on here a fair bloody bit if I did!
