    Wow - maybe fun to know other members.

    How many members have passed all 4 TCT tests?

    I'm pretty sure I met chuachinsoon briefly at TCT10 in Khon Kaen and I must have met other members as well and also at TCT11.

    No idea if I've met anyone in the "real world" though.

    Yeah last night I met up with Stamp and Professeur for the first time together with Gor Blimey Guvnur whom I had already met. Cracking night out - great to meet up with like minded people.

    I met Wang prior to Oct. 2011.
    Also prior to Oct. 2011, I was at TCT 8 with Stamp but we wouldn't have known one another even if we had bumped into each other.
    I met Po, Guv, Dave at TCT 9 &/or 10.
    A coworker who joined TTA at about the time of TCT 9 & 10 was there. He was a one post wonder and may no longer be active.
    I managed somehow not to meet Bahn Farang while in Lampang.
    I was seen at a Bangkok Science meeting. I'm hard to miss.

    Of course, I met Sunday Jam last year as part of the Bangkok-Lampang-Mongolia tango.
    Straying off topic, one year later, here's the judgment:
    Passing on the job offer in Bangkok was a really irrational thing to do. Later, however, my fingerprints were returned by the FBI because they were unclear. Had I accepted the Bangkok job, the offer might have been withdrawn because I would have been unable to produce a current criminal record check for months.
    I've certainly had a bumpy road at times, but people here are very nice and perhaps my happiest moments in my life have been here.

    I can think of a few (Stamp, Stevioli, myself, and I think Bahn Farang) who passed the TCT tests, and I recall that there are a couple of others who went through in one shot.
    I don't know how many TTA people did it.

    I'd like to know how many teachers in Thailand got the license by passing the TCT TKT. I sometimes need to be reminded just how special I am. My ass still smells like roses, of course.
