Still working in HR...emigrated to Canada but came back within months after mum was diagnosed with Parkinson's (now very advanced). On the brighter side, got married a couple of years ago and have a 6 week old baby daughter :o)

@ape from memory Zaxo was the daddy in terms of age. I'm ancient and he was even older


Sunny
3:15pm, 3rd September 2017
Yep Zaxo is the oldest here I think.

Shit so much has changed over the last ten years I can hardly start.
I got married, two years ago!

Launched about 5 other sites after I shut down barfi. Now we're back to square 1.

There were some proper characters on Barfi back in the day - there was the guy whose dad had a ferrari and he wouldn't stop talking about it, the girl who was obsessed with raw food and claimed it was the cure to every illness under the sun, the web designer with a foot fetish lol, blokes whining about their mothers forcing them into marriages 'back home', the constant India/Pakistan nonsense and bickering and many many more.

Can you recall when the original barfi got pulled?

Me...I been married two years now. Introduced to my Mr by legendary (ahem) barfian Spoon. Still going to gigs but no longer a gig a month. Boo hoo. And also am spending the rest of my life mourning the loss of Prince and thinking of what the barfians of the past are up to.

Changed my username from DiamondGeeza to this. Still married (14 years this year!), had a girl who is now 4. Just had a baby boy who is almost 6 months. Left carphone warehouse about 9 years ago (I don't know much about phones now...), joined a language services firm, traveled all over Europe and sometimes America for work but it wasn't conducive to family life, left that, joined a startup, got burned, left that. Now I do shift work, nothing to do with my degree but it pays well and fits my lifestyle around family, religion, running obstacle course races (hence the new username) and working out pretty much everyday. I still think there's one last career change left but we'll leave that for another day/ thread 😁

Stopped being a techie so therefore no longer had time to do bukwaas internet posts all day, still providing tech support for the whole family and friends circle (in laws as well now!) but don’t get paid for it.

Given the fact that I have just spent the last ½ hour killing time on here I maybe back to the bukwaas ???

Personally ? 2 Kids – The days go by slowly, but the years go by fast 😊

Ps Zaxo remembers the days when you had to ask the operator for the person you were calling instead of dialling a number. Heh. Amazingly still friends with Sunny, I must be a saint to have put up with him so long.
