Hello
« on: November 7, 2005, 12:53 PM »
Hi all,

MaxWedge (Jim) here.  Yet another convert of JoshEEE's recommendation.  Pretty new to BBoard posting although I'm (nearly) 40, so I may not have the hang of all the technical details.  Perhaps my 5 years of engineering school will help me get up to speed.  I'm east of Seattle in Woodinville (come for the wine, stay so you don't get a DUI).  My dad took me to see Ep. 4 when I was 11, waited in line for 4 hours at the Cine Capri in PHX.  By that time I had already read the paperpack 10 ten times.  I like collecting for me and my 5 year old son.  Funny story, my father-in-law took my son shopping yesterday at Fred Meyer for some tools, and my son comes home with the blue clone 3-pack (the only color I'm missing).  To get it from him I had to trade hin a box of the Walmart ROTS DVD clone 3-pack.  It's nice to be able to share SW with my son, the way my dad did with me.  Now if I just had the SW toys from my childhood!

Glad to have you here for certain and hope we can provide you with the more secure "finds" area you deserve.

Good to see you here Jim.

By the way guys, what he didn't mention is that his 5 year old kid is a little prodigy.  Turns out I've met Jim in a line before, When we were waiting for the Target Vaders on the 2nd.   All of a sudden this guy shows up with his son, and his son was rattling off answers to Star Wars trivia left and right.  We were all quite impressed, if not a little scared.  ;D
