Hello folks, those may recognize me from such boards as The Coffee House, the previous Zathyus Networks platform, or Jcink. I currently mostly attend my own two forums on the Jcink forum software, jCodes, and jDiscussions. I'm a coder at heart and the first board I mentioned is my personal board for Jcink coding resources and services.

Some facts about me:

  • I am currently 31 years of age.
  • I live in Texas.
  • I live with my parents and brother. My sister visits quite often too.
  • I have worked in retail for about half my life. I first worked at Big Lots, then Walmart, now Kroger.
  • All of my immediate family currently works at Kroger now.
  • My hobbies include Call of Duty, Pokemon GO, Yu-Gi-Oh TCG, coding, message boards, fantasy books/TV/films, and hard rock & metal.

AMA, by the way!

Hello there, Cory. I go by many names, but most just call me Maniak. I think I speak for everyone here when I say we hope you enjoy your stay, and don't mind all the wacky.

So, I'm going to guess by your avatar that Disturbed is amongst your favorite bands. Is there any other specific bands you like, or just the music in general?

Welcome to the forums Cory! Out of those three places you worked which one do you think treats their employees the best? Gasp As you are also a fan of Yu-Gi-Oh which version of the card game is your favorite and did the tv show get you into the card game?

Welcome to UG, Cory!

I'm sort of still am a fan of Disturbed, I just haven't got or listened to the album that came after Immortalized, and as I've not seen that image before I have got to find out what that is.

Oh no, how fun retail is. Hope Kroger treats you well.

Nice to see you here Cory! Grin

So when does your family plan to initiate a complete takeover of a Kroger store? Glare

@Maniakkid25: Thanks for the welcome! Disturbed is indeed my most favorite band. I also like such bands as Five Finger Death Punch, Three Days Grace, Breaking Benjamin, Linkin Park, and more!

@Karo: Thanks for the welcome! All places seemed to treat their employees fairly thus far. Not sure what you mean by which version of the card game I like, I collect more than play. The TV show did indeed get me into the TCG.

@Mr EliteL: Thanks for the welcome! If I recall correctly, I think my avatar is a part of the Immortalized artwork.

@Moonface: Thank you, nice to see you too! Only time will tell when we take over the Kroger universe! ^_^

What's Kroger like? I've heard it described as the Publix of states that don't have a Publix but I don't know if that just means it's a really nice store compared to most or if it actually has a lot of other similarities with it. Hmm

Also, which Disturbed song/album is your favourite? Smile

@Moonface: The Kroger I work out is somewhat new-ish, so it's a pretty nice store. They are a whole lot more organized than Walmart in terms of the backroom. I enjoy working there thus far.

I'm probably classic and like their song, Down With The Sickness, and their album in which the song is on, The Sickness the most.

@ShiraNoMai: Thanks for the welcome!

Never been to an individual bands concert in my entire adulthood, I don't think.

Ah man, I hope you get the opportunity to soon! Definitely a worthwhile experience for sure.

Since you still write forum software (or code for it), what's your take on the rise of Discord?

Discord is pretty amazing and I'm sure it's yet another communicative way that lessens the traffic of message boards. As sad as that is, I wouldn't want to see a world without Discord at this point. I use it for Pokemon GO mostly, but I also have a server for my own message board.

What forum platform has been your favourite to code for, assuming there are notable enough differences between them when it comes to that sort of thing. XD

Not InvisionFree, I know that much, since jQuery wasn't a thing at the time and wasn't installed by default when it became a thing. It's probably a tie between ZetaBoards and Jcink since the way you code for them is very similar.
