Finding out who your friends are

As Hubbers, we all appreciate our fans. Each time a new fan signs up to follow us, we get a message. We look forward to their fan mail and words of encouragement. I can always count on encouragement from drbj, Stan Fletcher or Hal Licino. Once in a while even Ryan Kett thinks of something nice to say about me.

Do you know who your friends are? Would you like a group photo? Getting them all together in the real world would be problematic, but I can provide the next best thing. We all know that any problem can be solved with a little software; to that end I wrote a program that assembles all my fans into a single graphic (or web page or Windows form, but that's only because I was bored). It works on your fans also.

Contact me through my profile if you want a group shot of all your fans. I'll send you a 'jpeg' file that you can use in one of your hubs, add to your desktop, or plaster on a billboard in TImes Square. Let me know what cool stuff you plan to do with it.

I'd like a group shot of my fans and what will I do with it? I don't know ... nothing perverted, I promise.

What a neat, ingenious idea, nicomp. You're something else. Haven't quite defined the something else yet but I'm working on it. :)

Will contact you via email - thanks for the offer.

Great idea, nicomp. We could paste them all together and send them to the Museum Of Modern Art.

Nicomp, I could have sworn I was a fan of yours, but for the life of me I can't find myself in your group picture. Are you sure your software doesn't have a bug?

Wow! That's great. I didn't know you were so multi-faceted! I'll be in touch to put in my request. Thanks :)

ps- I found myself in your image - how cool is that!

Nicomp, you have infringed copyright by publishing my artwork without my permission - see you in court and it will be a class action because I've just written a hub on using artworks without the consent of...So far this action has 200 hubbers (your so called fans!) each of whom has realized this is going to be one of the best internet get-rich quick schemes. 200 fans disgruntled at past get rich hubs written by you which did not make them rich at all though sounding plausible are going to get your house, your car, your other property, your jewellery, your valuables, even your pet horse that lives in a pot and the cat with the funny hat on and even the gold medal and anything else we can get our grubby hands on. Hee hee!

This is way cool. I've never felt famous until this moment. You must be some kind of evil genius to have figured this out

but I already knew that.

Just read Pdog's comment and have changed my mind. Disregard the above praise. I will be suing too.
