Community Spotlight

[ Edited ]

Hi everyone, 

 

I happy to bring you another community spotlight! This time around the spotlight is on @Anonymous. Choegyn joined the O2 community this year has has quickly become a regular face around the boards and has provided us with a fantastic Microsoft Band review as part of Try the Tech. 

 

We've asked a few questions to help you all get to know Choegyn better so say hi and feel free to ask any follow up questions. Smiley Wink

 

What's your name and where are you from?

 

 I'm Steve and I am from Bury, Lancashire

 

Favourite thing about the forum/what do you like best?

 

The best thing about the forums is everyone helping each other, also usually there is always someone willing to chat gaming

 

Why did you join the O2 forums?

 

I joined the forums because I switched over from Virgin, also I used to work for O2 in their Bury Call Centre on customer service for the old Genie Sims back when I was a wee nipper, all young and dumb with all my own hair, and I thought I would see if some of the knowledge I retained was still up to date and of use to anyone

 

Which mobile phone did you first own and why?

 

My first mobile was a present of my parents back in 1998, it was on orange on the Just Talk plan, and it was an big Motorola, best thing about it was the plan as the name implies it was not intended for texting, and this phone kept the last text you sent, had to delete it everytime you went to send a new one. Anyway to stop you from sending the texts they weren't billing you for the essentially sent 160 spaces, delete them and free texts for about 15 monhts. The aerial did tend to stick you in uncomfortable places if you forgot to take it out of your pocket before you sat down though.

Apple, Android or Windows?

 

Firmly a windows user, I have for me a Lumia 950, and I love it, syncs with my desktop, laptop, xbox, tablet and who needs aoos when you can just access a website. Also to be honest I have a samsung s6 for work, dont use apps on that either.

 

Favourite movie/TV show/actor?

 

This is not a question I can answer, my list would run several pages - lets just say sci-fi and leave it at that

 

 

What are your tastes in music?

 

As above, but if we get some Zappa or some ACDV going Im a happy man 

 

Do you have any pets?

 

Do kids count? I do I have three cats, they were meant to be the childrens but soon they got sick of feeding, cleaning, emptying the litter tray and since the canal was a bit of a walk I decided to keep hold of them for a while. 

 

Cats or dogs which is better?

 

Neither, I never wanted pets, however I would be tempted to adopt a dog in the next question, where he would be my early warning system.

 

What is your zombie apocalypse plan?

 

First, you need the right location, I am thinking farmhouse and moors, I intend to ram raid the library, get books on farming and animal welfare, after all I have no useful skills unless the zombie wants its taxes doing. Then we have to setup a lot of big walls and fences, become my own little self sufficient world, might take the Mrs and the kids, but Clara from Dr Who might need somewhere to hide...

 

Favourite meal?

 

I love a curry the award winning Jewel in The Crown do a cheese tika, start with that add a mixed kebab starter for two and additional shami, the main is usually a chicken karahi, wash down with dark ale and a couple of rennies to polish off.

 

Future developments in mobile tech your looking forward to?

 

At the minute I am awaiting some more AR to become involved in life, I know Google glass never took off, but hololens is looking like a good shot and witht eh advent of games supporting it, popular usage is just around the corner. Hopefully they will also make it compatible with my presciption 

 

Hobbies besides mobile?

 

Well noly a few of these as I have two children under two so they take up a lot of time, I am involved in local politics, I am currently working towards getting the conservative nomination for local councillor in the Unsworth Ward of Bury South, I coach an under 9s football team (Bury FC Jrs Hawks) aside form this I decided I wanted to expand my horizons so I am doing a part time history degree. Other than this it is Xbox, bit more Xbox, pontificating on ales, and then some Xboix

 

Awesome stuff thanks Choegyn!

Re: Community Spotlight

Hi @Anonymous and welcome. Welcome

Completely random question here but how did you choose your forum name? See I was mistaken, when you first joined I thought you were female Smiley Embarassed (I think it's because Choe reminds me of Chloe)

I am not really interested in gaming but many of my family members are...so I am used to hearing abuse shouted at the TV screens when a team battle is going on....Smiley Very Happy

Re: Community Spotlight

I have a most underused (by me) gamer tag, actually.
