Hi there, just saying hi after a long time of lurking then forgetting about this site and some more lurking after rediscovering it :).

Things I can contribute with if anyone needs help:
- Anything to do with the use of Hebrew :)

Things I might need help in (when the time comes I'll be sure to ask ... and ask, ... and ask :P):
- Anything that has to do with making maps on a Linux machine (use to have CC3 but since my move to Linux I gave it to a friend so now I only have GIMP and (as of yesterday) Inkscape)
- Will soon offer some commissions for some maps I need done and can't wait till I know how ;)

hmmm... that is it for now I guess...

I'm an avid HERO gamer (Hi RPMiller) and a chef (though I've been working in a different field for the past year or so).

Welcome to the Guild!

Welcome, the Hebrew might come in useful for the right map. I can think of a few where it would have been an advantage.

Welcome, to the guild! You mentioned that you are a chef.... do you specialize in any particular cuisine? ( or do you have a favorite style of cooking? )

No, no favorite, though I'm strongly influenced by Middle- Eastern, Russian and Mediterranean flavors (as well as some Jewish adaptation of Moroccan, Tunisian, Egyptian, and Yemenite cuisines) and ingredients due to me living in Israel for 22 years or so... and Japanese flavors and aesthetics appeal to me greatly. So in my cooking I try to incorporate it's concepts into my own "Fusioanic" style :) , are you a professional? or just interested in cooking?

welcome - looking forward to seeing your maps - and who knows when hebrew might come in handy :)

With the addition of Hebrew we just might have a full complement of major world languages around here. :) Welcome to the Guild.

I have never had any particular success at cooking. I have family member's who are very good at it, but I never seemed to inherit that talent. I am interested in how other interests outside of map-making effect the maps we make. That's what lead me to ask the question about your cooking preferences. Thanks for sharing.

p.s. -- I would love to see a map with all the towns and villages named after different unusual foods, and dishes... just a crazy thought but it could be a very interesting idea = )

Well, usually I pay close attention to how places and food interact , and such , though it usually not completely apparent in my maps only in their description so you might say it is related to my interest in food :P
