Pengwino says - It was just an idea. Because my computer is being so slow and the Graemlins box takes such along time to load.

I guess you know you're addicted if (like Quix) you have hop manually entered into a hosts lookup so you can reach it even when your DNS server is down (I do that for all my favourite sites. What does that say about my DNS?)

Oh and I can (thanks to my browser) reach HoP by typing HP and hitting enter in the address bar. Is that addiction?

Posted:when u bother to look at reasons why ur addicted to poi and realise its all true
when u can take the time out to talk and help people around u learn (ie ive taught at lest 20 of my mates how to do the 3beat weave and the butterfly)
when u listen to music and instantly think of moves to spin with the beats and create a poi/staff dance in ur mind during a song (only if ur inside and away from poi causing u to only think and not act) ubbloco

and constantly searching for a new move

fire is mad


yay up to 5 beat weave only 4 more to get to 9 :P

when you're always talking abot what so-and-so said on HoP

when your mobile phone is full of amusing messages sent to you by HoPpers (that message from Flynt about the Petite Miam still cracks me up!)




when you have dreams where you meet various HoPers, or they just appear in your dreams like they should always be there! ubblol

Posted:When your browser opens to the HOP website but you type it out anyway because it's faster...

When sometimes there are less than six people are between you and your last post at the word association game....

When you've downloaded/ seen almost every video in the archive inspired by the thought that you might acquire their fluidity and grace at some point in the future...

When it's the first thing you check in the morning, and the last thing you check at night... believe me... I'll probably check again in a couple of hour before I hit the sack ubblol

It maybe when you feel you might find friends in a place that's quite intangible but very real... biggrin
