Jason... more than just your average forum lurker...

by raygun01 / May 22, 2007 4:19 AM PDT

In fact, now, I'm officially a lurker-turned-participant.

Howdy Buzz world! It's great to make your acquaintance. Having been an avid BOL listener for the past year and a half, I gotta admit... I'm honored to be involved! Like many of you, BOL has been my saving grace on my way to work. Of course, my "work" IS CNET... so it also acts as a way for me to sort of catch up with the tech news of the day before my two feet even pass through the front doors every morning.

Anyways, it's great to be brought into the fold, and I hope that I can help to improve BOL as well as all of the other CNET podcasts in the near future. I'll keep my eyes and ears posted to ya'll here in the forums.

Cheers, world!

Jason Howell

Yeah, that is better. Better than being referred to as Sasquatch or that tall hairy guy.

I Know How You Feel Jason

I'm only 14 and I'm about 6'2". I get all sorts of tall jokes from my friends. You're doing an awesome job so far and you're helping to fill the void of Veronica (although that will probably never be filled). Keep up the great work.

Howdy Jason!

You need a handle, good buddy.

Hmmm...Buzz / Jason / Lurker = BuzzJurker?

Maybe I'm trying too hard. It'll happen when you least expect it.

Happy to have you on the boards!

Raygun has always worked for me... but as you say, I'm sure something will "pop" in there...

Oh and I feel so refreshed with this sparkling new "C" by my name in the forums. Feels complete.

Thanks for the well wishes everyone! Great to be on board.

Long time listener, first time poster. Welcome to Buzz World. I was just curious. Was taking the brunt of Miss Belmont's verbal abuse part of the job description? (I kid, I kid) Here are some things to try when it happens again, cause you know it will.

1. You have the power man; you are sitting at the control board. I wonder how she would take it if her microphone suddenly and inexplicably turned off?

2. Scream at the top of your lungs, "HELP!!! HELP!!! Call 1-800-PRODUCER-ABUSE!!!" (Pronounced AbOOse for added comical effect.)
