well, like title, anyone wanna share?

something that you maybe struggle for years but in the end, it turns out as you expected?

eg.
learning asm for 3 years?
take years to fight against the fear of water?
score A's in academic after years effort?
years taken to understand this fucking bitchy love relationship?
discover some unknown algorithm/theories/law.
divorce your wife after years of marriage? Laughing Laughing
watever...

and, why i ask this question? because i no yet achieve anything that i consider achievement in my life, possibly i set a higher standard, i don't know, but i wanna know what are yours achievements so that i could make it as references, maybe for my life and others.

In my opinion, most FASM forumers are unlikely to boast of some sort of accomplishment. I would humbly suggest changing the focus of this topic, instead, to inquire what folks think their most important post has been to this forum, if that would be something sleep^2 could accept as a useful change in direction....

One advantage of that question, in my opinion, is that then forum members could reflect back on two, three, even five years of submissions, and ask themselves, and others, which, if any, of previous submissions were helpful, useful, or worthy of emulation.

The other advantage of this change of direction, is that what one person finds attractive, useful, or creative, someone else might find boring, repetitious, or obnoxious, so that, then, one can not only "boast" about one's own accomplishments on the forum, but also argue with someone else, about his/her submission. For example, I suppose, hypothetically, that I could disagree with revolution, and argue that his most significant contribution is found in the operating system contest he has organized. He on the otherhand, might have some other post, on a different subject, which he proposes, as his most noteworthy....

In thinking about sleep^2 inquiry, I wonder if maybe it could be productive, for sleep^2 himself to prepare a list of the fifty most useful submissions to the forum, so that the community could weigh in on his ordering. I bet he has trouble with Tomasz' post, because, how would one decide, for example, whether it is FASM version xyz, or FASM version QRS, which has been the most important? Tomasz himself, of course, could argue that his most important submission is the topic of music video.

I think, sleep^2, that constructing such a list would be arduous, and may occupy your pen for some weeks, so, no need to reply, today!!

"your most greatest achievements in life"?

Children -> Grandchildren

The only reason to work hard, to provide, to enjoy: first your early life; your childrens' life; then watch your children go thru what you went thru with their own children. Being able to help your children raise their children is the greatest achievement/joy.

i actually start smoking by chance too, somebody who troll in front of my house (while i still high school) leave a pack of cigaratte nearby, so... after he leaves, my friend and i go and get it and try, smoke around 1 year, but after that i quit.

then, after 5 years, (recently), i start smoking again... Very Happy

Well I hope it does go well. Time will tell. But as for being the most significant ... not so sure about that. Maybe it depends upon how one defines the things that make a post significant? Could I suggest that anything that makes others think and create can be considered significant? And the more thought and creation then the more significant.

Is "noteworthy" the same as "significant"? Because I think they are different. Quite a subtle difference maybe, but still different.

BTW: I forgive you for the "he" references. This assumption has not been confirmed.

There's only one way to know for sure, and I don't think this message board will ever prove it!!! Laughing

Of course, neither has it been refuted.

The most famous, western author, female, who wrote with a man's name, was George Sand. The most famous female author of any time, in my opinion, was Murasaki Shikibu, who wrote Genji Monogatari. So, yes, some women do write, and write well, very well.
I have met very talented, and very skillful C programmers, though, not so many Assembly Language lassies.

The forum here may have one or two females, I don't know, but I would doubt that "revolution" is one of them. I do acknowledge, however, your main point which is that I am unable to accurately predict gender from linguistic analysis. I suspect that MHajduk, Shoorick, and Yong would be more skillful at that endeavor, in view of their multifaceted observational experiences.

Yesterday, at the gymanasium, I saw a young girl, maybe 35 or so, lifting the same weight which I struggle to move, and she was pushing the weight effortlessly. I studied her movements, from afar, and she was able to perform multiple repetitions of the same movement, without stopping, as I must, to rest. Her shoulders and arms are both much more solid than my own. I need to spend less time on the FASM forum, and more time in the gym.

I am pleased to see that you do use the word "girl" to describe females in general. I wonder if your previous objections to this usage were genuine or whether you have accepted this meaning just lately? Hm?

Thanks, yes, I appreciate that you were pleased by something I jotted down....

You may have noticed that I used four different vocabulary words to describe the same gender: girl, woman(en), female, lassie.

The notion here was to attempt to broaden the terminology somewhat more than my typical, repetitive gossip. Since I had employed the adjective "young", to contrast with my own advanced stage of senility, it seemed appropriate to appose the youthful equivalent, "girl". I added age 35, to ensure no misunderstanding about my intended meaning: a healthy appearing, youthful, probably premenopausal female with considerable strength, as opposed to a small statured, weak, adolescent juvenile.

"Girl" in that context, was intended to be tongue in cheek.

Great. So an old dog can learn new tricks. Maybe this the forum's best achievement, getting tom tobias to accept new meanings for old words.

BTW: Good luck with your new girlfriend. Let us know how it progresses.

What for? You know, the brain needs exercises too to be in "shape". I would choose it over muscles anyday Laughing

I would actually suggest you need more "free" type of writing, less verbosity in jokes maybe and overall, and learn how to make phrases have implicit context without having to detail it with so many words like you do (I'm serious). "exercise" on that instead of muscles Wink

They are different.
But with some logic, the most "noteworthy" thing I could do would be... to blow up the Earth into a quadrillion pieces. No seriously, I mean anything else (terrestrial) pales in comparison. Laughing

This would make me "significant" in the Universe's history. See the difference? Wink

My greatest achievement in this life is the fact that it isn't over yet! I'm not going to take full credit for that, but I certainly played a major role. Laughing

Destruction of the Earth would hardly constitute a "significant" event at Universe scale. If the matter could be converted into a little black hole then maybe - where did you think they came from. Very Happy

And it wouldn't be noteworthy because there would be nobody left to make a note of it. Laughing

Big Brother, err I mean the Universe, is watching us... WinkRazz

but I didn't say it would be "significant", I said in comparison to anything else that we can do Twisted Evil
