HI
I like Collecting Postcards from all over the world and have a nice collection.Also wudnt mind sending some postcards to u if are interested. So thought of this Idea :
Lets Exchange PostCards. It works this way : The next name and Address on this Post receives a PostCard from me. He/She on his/her part wud send me one(before/after receiveing mine). And that completes One Cycle. Now we get a Third Post. I send that person a PostCard and he/she sends me one. Once we both receive each others Postcards, I send a Go Ahead Message and Then the person on the 2nd Post will send the 3rd guy a postcard and ViceVersa and the Cycle Continues. I know its a bit confusing but go through it again if u dont get it or ask me. This Cycle will also help us in identifying if someone is acting nasty and not sending postcards. We then just stop sending postcards to him and take the next Post. Since I am the First guys , it will be a Big Financial/time consuming burden on me , but since i m the one to start it, i will take that responsibility.
Lets Start. It will take some time to start working effectively but once it picks up, I am sure we all will have a World Blast.
Post your Suggestions/Advices and your Full Address.
Regards
Tintin

This guy seems hell bent on finding out everybody else's real names and addresses but uses a fake ID himself. First it was the JAVA jumpstart CDs now it's the postcards. Please exercise extreme caution when dealing with this person.

Thats a Valid Point and it would be Unfair If I(Tintin Herge) dont Post with my Original Name and Address. So here goes :
Sharad Patel
1-2 , Dorset Rise
London EC4Y8AE
UK
I Have no Intention of stealing/marketing/using/selling anyone's Addresses but I see no other way to exchange PostCards.
Also I tried Creating a ID with my own Name but it says User Already Exists and so I had to Use 1 after my last name.
Any more Questions/Doubts , Mr MG ??? Also I am not forcing/coaxing anyone to post their Addresses. If it interests u and wud love to view how beautiful our World is, you are most welcome. If not, stay in your own Home. No Probs.
This world is full of Paranoids and the decision we have to make is :Either to Believe them and suspect each and every good thing OR Start enjoying the small pleasures of life.

'Tis the season for changing names!
Sharad, try putting in a middle name or initial. Will look better than "Patel1". Just a suggestion

Tintin/Sharad
It sounds like a neat idea, but it looks like tit owuld be time consuming to almost everyone on the list, maybe a little more for you but it looks like everyone will eventually be sending everyone else a post card. Maybe try to scale it down some:
The second poster sends one to the first poster then the first poster sends one back. Then the third sends one to the second and the second one sends one back, then the 4th to the 3rd and vice versa all the way up. If anyone wants to send out additional cards to anyone else on the list they can, or if anyone wants more than one card then they can keep jumping on the list or just put a note on their post that says they want lots.
Other than that I think it would be neat to try it out.

Sharad, now that everyone knows your address, you might get some not-so-pleasant postcards from some folks... Remember this?

Duly noted. Although the Chongson Triad is in the process of moving its arena of operations elsewhere. A parting gift is on its way to 1-2 , Dorset Rise. I am not at liberty to disclose the contents of the parcel. I can give you a vague hint. It is a product of the sea.
Cheers
Sahir
PS. Manku Thimma, Is that your real name? No wonder you kept it a dark secret for so long.

Let's just say that it's a name conforming to the Ranch's naming convention
Sharad, please tell us what you received in the "From Dubai With Love" parcel I don't think it's pearls!
