My pleasure!

By the way, the name isn't necessarily final, nor is the layout.  If you have any suggestions, or don't like the setup/name, etc... please e-mail me.

Hi Arsalan,

Looks beautiful. Love it!

Can't seem to edit my profile, which makes me sad.

Still want your camera.

xoxo

Virginia,

I am thinking of heading to Gwangju this weekend, maybe we can do our trade there?  If you're going to that speakeasy event. :)  However, I am also feeling lazy, like always.

That's so awesome. This name has come to mean one of the most useful and connecting resources that 외국인 have in this country. I was thinking the other day how this is probably one of the first Korean words that NETs learn, but also misuse (as in, using it as a noun) and mispronounce because of the name of this website. I was thinking about how it should be changed or there should be a disclaimer explaining it to newbies. But then I was thinking about how languages borrow words from other languages and they take on a meaning of their own in the borrower-language, with their own special nuances. I guess "waygook" doesn't mean "foreign(er)" in NET's English, but rather ex-patriot community, connection, belonging and solace. OK, soppy moment over.  :-*
