Joining me this evening is one of my own personal favourites. He is an Esatonian of extreme quality and class, not as prolific as some other members, he certainly makes sure that what he does post is of the highest possible quality. One of Esato's overlooked treasures, in my view, I am of course talking about Gigs.

What is the best thing about Esato?

Gigs says:
Like the others before me i'd like to thankyou for having me on your couch. Doctor, I feel that we probably should begin with my parents as of course there is alot of.. Oh.. It's not that sort of couch? (rumagaes around underneath the cushions) Oh a tenner. Cheers.

The best thing about esato is that it gives me somewhere else to be during work. Oh yeah and the whole big community and mobile thing. (Thats becomming the beauty contestant 'World Peace' answer isn't it?)

Who is your favourite Esato member?

Gigs says:
I don't think i've been around long enough to have a favourite over all, there are certainly some I prefer more than others, but Yourself, Vlam, MixiN and of course Axxxr spring to mind.

Who is your favourite moderator?

Gigs says:
The mysterious moderator X. Favourite moderator I guess is a bit subjective, which ever one doesn't ban me in the future, but they all seem to be doing a fairly good job and keeping the peace.

What is your favourite Esato moment?

Gigs says:
With out a doubt the moderators election thread before it got closed. Great fun and there was nothing serious about it, yet still constructively thought out. The Scamm party was fairly strong on the day. (BTW I'd like to thank all those members who rapidly sunk to the level of bribing the media, fom your gifts, your thoughts, and your now charged bank accounts, thank you.)

What is your least favourite Esato moment?

Gigs says:
The closing of said election thread. While i'm still not sure why it was closed, it was.

You have been an Esatonian for some time now, but you post very infrequently, to say the least, yet, in my view, what your posts lack in quantity they more than make up for in quality; why not post more?

Gigs says:
Work, and general lack of empathy with my fellow subjects. I work in a call center so I help people all day long, I guess I tend to gravitate away from helpful posts because of this. I'm picking up the pace a little though.

As one of Esato's few Antipodean members, do you feel 'left out' at all as Esato predominantly operates on Eurasian, and to a lesser extent American, timezones?

Gigs says:
If anyone remembers Krull you'll remember the magician (Ergo I think was his name) who said "Small in stature, big in..." well what ever the quote was it was pertinent in some way here. Whilst there are only at least 2 Kiwis present, I'm sure in a year or two we'll be over running esatos main population.

Which mobile are you currently using?

Gigs says:
P910i and loving it.

Which mobile are you most looking forward to?

Gigs says:
None currently, I'm absolutely wrapped with the P910i. The S700i is a very cool phone though. I'll wait on an unfounded rumours thread with a hopefully pixelated picture before getting excited about a new model.

Do you have a message for Esato?

Gigs says:
If I haven't posted much by now would I have one to give? Of course.
"If you're looking for a new land, look for the land where our leaders only problems are wether we should give back some beaches and how good they are at forging art. No, theres no damned hobbits. - New Zealand."

Thank you to Gigs and please do join me again for more chatter on the couch.

Joining me on the couch this evening is one of the few Esatonians who can truely be called 'great'. He has been a member of Esato for longer than most of the rest of us and counts some of Esato's most respected amongst his peers. It can only be the ever helpful, the ever informative, wapchimp.

What is the best thing about Esato?

wapchimp says:
Just the ammount of help & support from others.

Who is your favourite member of Esato?

wapchimp says:
Boyi - PS2 online warrior. Ive not spoke to him recently though.
Not been on Esato much either. Baby, work and website is taking over my life.

Who is your favourite moderator?

wapchimp says:
I don't respect authority.

What is your favourite Esato moment?

wapchimp says:
When the server goes down
only joking. I have so many. Most of them include Boyi and winding people up

What is your least favourite Esato moment?

wapchimp says:
not being able to spend a little more time on here.

As many who know you, may already know, you are interested in WAP, why? What would you say to those who say WAP is boring, dull or a pale imitation of the Internet?

wapchimp says:
Well programming my wap site started as a hobby. Now its turned into 4 domains .com .net. info & .co.uk plus I have nearly finished my web site & online shop! All things retro of course.

Well wap is the internet. Most phones now can render xhtml pages and wap is something the internet can never be - simple.....

Which mobile are you currently using?

wapchimp says:
Nokia 6600

Which mobile are you most looking forward to?

wapchimp says:
Nokia 6630 or Z1010. I would really love a series 60

Do you have a message for Esato?

wapchimp says:
I'm selling these fine leather jackets.....

I hope you can join me next time when it will be my honour to have one of Esato's greatest ever members on the couch.

On the couch with me this evening is one of Esato's greatest ever members, almost universaly respected my guest is currently in exilio ab Esato. In a rare interview he discusses his reasons for leaving Esato and the possibility that he may one day return.


What is the best thing about Esato?

fijbert says:
well, being gone so long.. I dunno if I'm in a position to really answer that... but I'd hv to say from the time I was there... I'd hv to say the members and the garbage threads.. it will always be my first step in the mobile world, and I'll never forget it

Who is your favourite member of Esato?

fijbert says:
I'll hv to go with cyanx... simply cuz of all the fun flamewars we had together... for all the old members... yall remember the war we had.. with that lizard pachy

Who is your favourite moderator?

fijbert says:
tranquil.. no doubt... with his posting games.. those were fun.. and he was always a fair person and an all around great guy to talk to

What is your favourite Esato moment?

fijbert says:
uhm... when the garbage threads became uber popular

What is your least favourite Esato moment?

fijbert says:
when the garbage threads got closed off that was quite upsetting.. and I'd hv to go with when the whole place got over run with noobs.. that's when I decided it was time to move on

That leads me nicely onto my next question; why did you leave Esato?

fijbert says:
well, I left simply cuz I was finding myself posting more and more on my-symbian (due to my P800)...and I kept seeing the same threads being repeated on esato.. and finally, I ended up buying a nokia. and I had no real reason to post so actively on esato anymore.. found myself on other forums such as *gasp* (hofo) am I allowed to say that here? hofo?

The moderators may edit this post for bad language! Moving on, can you explain what you meant by the Rubbish (Garbage) Forum being closed off, for our more recent members?

fijbert says:
well, before we could create threads in the garbage forums.. and we caused so much bandwidth usage and we postwhored so much that laffen decided we cant create threads there..

How often do you still post on Esato?

fijbert says:
once or twice every couple of months.. altho I'm still in the top 20 posters of all time.. a feat I'm quite proud of

Do you think you will ever return 'in full' to Esato?

fijbert says:
doubtfully... I tried at one point.. but I dont even like Sony Ericsson anymore... I felt kind of screwed over by the P910i.. I resent them now... so I think I'll just get flamed by everyone if I ever come back

As arguably one of the greatest Esatonians, are there any newer members you have spotted potential in?

fijbert says:
well, thanks for the compliment
but I dont know any of the newer members to be able to tell
I'm sure there are some tho

Which mobile are you currently using?

fijbert says:
Nokia 6230, 5140, 9500
Sony Ericsson P900 (x2), P910i, T630
Motorola V3

Which mobile are you most looking forward to?

fijbert says:
well, nothing really. I mean.. what is there to look forward to? the next phone I'm getting is gonna be a Nokia 7280.. jsut for the fun

Do you have a message for Esato?

fijbert says:
well, to all the veterans, I miss chatting with yall
to the n00bs.. dont give the veterans a hard time..
fijbert says:
and to u, thx for the interview

On behalf of Esato I would very much like to extend our thanks to fijbert for agreeing to do this interview. I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did. Please join me again soon when I will be chatting with methylayed_spirit and kimcheeboi about their latest venture.

I do remember @fijbert then . . . when he cheated on one of the Playtime Contest last December 2003 ! He ALMOST outsmarted TWO FILIPINOS (me one of them) in that game, unfortunately the 2 attending MODS managed to see how he make a CHEAT (me still puzzled till this time how the mods managed to track that one ) Well, I also do MISS the presence of the OLDIES here, as I WAS once a NEWBIE too !

@scotsboyuk - Please try to INTERVIEW some folks from:

1. Slovakia
2. Nigeria
3. Middle East
4. Canada
5. Australia
6. Asian Region

Regardless, wheter they are OLD or NEW members here - OK As wel ALL know that ESATO is an International Discussion Forum Site ! Cheers . . .

I have a friend of the thread back on the couch this evening, here to talk about his latest venture. Please join me in welcoming methylated_spirit.


What exactly are you up to this time?

methylated_spirit says:
Well, scotsboy, first off i'd like to thank you for having me back, its truly marvelous to be here. I have been working hard on a germ of an idea i had way back in the eighties and now, i believe the time is right to bring it to fruition.
Its a fact of life, everyone needs someone to hug. Now, i've noticed that some people have trouble expressing themselves, and finding a soulmate. I, along with my head researcher kimcheeboi, have been working on a plan.

So what are you going to do?

methylated_spirit says:
We have worked long and hard, and over the last decade, we have perfected it. We have designed and built the Love-Life Boot Camp!

What exactly is that?

methylated_spirit says:
We have just perfected a series of tests, theoretical and practical, which will show you the way. It will sharpen the mind and the spirit, it will invigorate and rejuvenate those who find themselves in a stale marriage, it will show people new to this crazy game we call love the way!

Is this just a gimmick to bolster the 'Esato Lonely Hearts Thread'?

methylated_spirit says:
This is a charge that has been levelled at me before, and to these people, i say how DARE you! The lonely hearts thread has attracted lonely people, who want and need guidance and encouragement. Now, i believe that my patented course will help these people, it will improve their quality of life. It is not a "gimmick", it is a helping hand in this oft-times cruel and impatient world.

I notice that you and kimcheeboi are running this course, what about mince-inside?

methylated_spirit says:
Yes, you may have been wondering about my friend and lover mince-inside. Dont worry, we havent fallen out, its just that mince is pursuing another idea of his at the moment. He will be back. This is a seperate venture from the M'n'M partnership, in which i have signed up kimcheeboi to help. Dont worry, fans, M'n'M is not defunct. We will be back together.

Why seperate ventures all of a sudden?

methylated_spirit says:
People do take us as a partnership, but we have our own seperate goals t fulfill, and dreams to pursue. mince-inside is currently working on his own project, the production of cheap power using sawdust and a Lenny Henry dvd. I dont know how successful he's been, but he's been at it for a while, so im sure he's making progress.

What do you think of the recent negative threads on Esato, is this course designed to contribute something positive?

methylated_spirit says:
This course is designed to enrich and empower.

Who do you consider to be your primary market?

methylated_spirit says:
It will help esato members, which will help esato become even stronger. Team lonely hearts. Team esato.
My primary market? well, anyone who wants help to find a life partner anyone in need

So as a little sneak preview, can we have a demonstration of the course here on the couch?

methylated_spirit says:
Well, its a closely guarded secret, and i believe it would be unfair to the participants to prematurely reveal any of my technique, but i will give a short summary of the general layout, if thats ok?
There will be two practical tests, a multiple-choice quiz, an essay question, and the final exam.

What do you say to those who might claim that you are giving people false hope; that if someone needs to take a love course then they are perhaps not exactly best predispossessed towards finding love?

methylated_spirit says:
Is it right or fair that one person can say whether another is entitled to find love? No, of course it isnt. Instead of standing by and laughing at a less fortunate persons attempts to find a soulmate, I am going to help them. Everyone has the right to happiness.

What other projects do you have lined up for Esato?

methylated_spirit says:
Other projects? I have a couple of ideas in the pipeline. Once this marvelous course is over with, then you will see. Dont worry, i have a few things in mind to enrich Esato members lives.

'The Love Boot Camp' begins on Thursday 18th November in the 'Esato Lonely Hearts Forum. Please join me next time when I shall be chatting with more of Esato's finest on the couch.
