I've been extraordinarily lucky, over the years, with meeting people through the internet. In 1995, when I was seventeen, my parents allowed me to be collected from my boarding-school for dinner and videos by two local Man from U.N.C.L.E. fans from cix's channeld/open conference. This was to be the first of many such meetings with kindred souls from usenet and mailing-lists, culminating, of course, in all the lovely LiveJournalists I've met for real over the last couple of years.
So. Who else wants to meet me?
