Community Spotlight

[ Edited ]

Hi guys, 

 

Its community spotlight time again! This time around the spotlight is on @version7point0! version7point0 joined the O2 community way back 2012 and has recently come back to the forum after a break. 

 

We have asked a series of questions to help you all get to know them a little better. So drop in and say hi below and ask anything that your curious about. Smiley Wink

 

What's your name and where are you from?

Hi! I'm Ray from Hartlepool

 

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

The level of knowledge and experience from the established members is fantastic and always so impartial compared to branded / employed responses.

No matter what the issue there is always someone here who can help.

 

Why did you join the O2 forums?

I've been around on the forums for a few years now, it started as a was of gaining knowledge of the common issues O2 customers faced when I was an in store Guru for O2 and helping where I could in an unofficial capacity. 

 

Which mobile phone did you first own and why?

My first mobile phone, was the Motorola CD920 – monophonic ringtones and no WAP – but it had a cool little flip that covered the keypad. 

 

Apple, Android or Windows?

I've tried them all and each has its merits but I always end off going back to Android.

 

Favourite movie/TV show/actor?

Too many possible choices, I'll try and keep it brief.

Movie. Star Wars: A New Hope, Superman (Christopher Reeve) and Airplane. I used to watch them over and over again on my Grandad's Laser Vision when I was young

On the planner for TV Shows – The Big Bang Theory, Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley, The Flash, Gotham, and Mr Robot

As for an actor, Morgan Freeman, Tom Hanks and Matt Damon never seem to disappoint.

 

What are your tastes in music?

If I can close my eyes and a song take me somewhere or just gets me tapping my foot then it gets my vote. My recent activity on Play Music shows the Four Tops, Oasis, Adel, Elvis, Two Steps From Hell, Hans Zimmer, Pink Floyd, Placebo and the Chemical Brother and that is just a handful.

 

Do you have any pets?

We have a cat, but he seems to think we are his pets. I think he took that Cravendale advert far too seriously and ever since he has not been the same.

 

Cats or dogs which is better?

Cats of course, opposable thumbs is all that separates them from complete control. 

 

What is your zombie apocalypse plan?

Grab the wife, kids and cat, head to Weatherspoons, have a nice cold pint and wait for it all to blow over.

(Truth be told I have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to this but my plans are far too detailed to be listed here)

 

Favourite meal?

Christmas dinner at Mams – she recently made one mid year before my sister left for America – but you know it just didn't taste quite the same, must be the Christmas magic which adds to the taste.

 

Future developments in mobile tech your looking forward to?

The day we have a mobile phone battery that goes back to charging once every other week. The Internet of things, convergeance, VR and AR etc are amazing feats of how far our mobiles have come but it is about time batteries backed the tech up and little bit more.

 

Hobbies besides mobile?

Family days out are always my favourite, between taking snaps of everything with my camera you can usually find me doing anything the kids are doing. Come bed time I like to catch up on any TV shows and movies I've been wanting to watch. Gaming - Ingress and more recently Pokemon Go keep me active, when I have a bit more time I play Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes, Vain-Glory and occasionally Hearthstone.

 

Great stuff thanks version7point0.

Hi Ray.
Nice to see you back. Your taste in music is very eclectic. Have you ever been to any festivals?

Re: Community Spotlight

@Cleoriff thank you, its good to be back. I've never been to a festival,, its one of those things I always said I would do but never got round to it. They don't have age limits on them do they. Haha.

@MI5 I'm more of a strawberry sauce kinda guy. Or more aptly nicknamed monkeys blood.

Re: Community Spotlight

@Cleoriff we had always discussed me taking a second stint at being a stay at home dad and a few things kindly fell into place with me leaving last November.

@MI5 got it in one, although I'm originally from a few mile up the road, its the better half who is born and bred here.
