    In ten years time

    Where do you predict you will be in ten years time. Surely none of you will still be posting by then.

    Hopefully, working as a professional journalist.

    As for the 10 year comment - who knows? We could be bigger than cricinfo - we've done remakably well to get where we are in under 2 years.

    Regardless, I've been part of Cricket Web since I opened and see no reason why that would change in the future

    Hopefully I will get to travel the world like I am hoping to do next year. Who knows, champion Tour de France cyclist, just a plain cyclist or a long distance runner. I'm told I have the fitness level to run to Melbourne, so I might just do that!

    Or maybe I will finally get off my arse and get my learner permit. I'm 18 and I still havent learnt to drive. Mind you, Ricky Ponting didnt get his licenise till last year.

    Me? Hmmm hopefully still playing cricket, still playing bass having written some of the oddest songs you'll hear written on a bass guitar...

    Really in 10 years I just hope I'm happy, happily with someone I love, stuff like that

    The rules are probably different over there, but I didn't pass my Test till I reached 20, a year after I started learning to drive.

    Well in Queensland you can get your learner licenise at 16.5 years and get your licenise at 17. I only know this as I live in the state.

    I intend to post until I die/George Bush presses the big red button/CW gets shut down by Rikki Clarke's lawyers.

    Also to make a double figure score or take three wickets

    That and achieve the Level III coaching award (which would qualify me to run the England women's team..) and be quite close to retirement on an insanely over-paid and under-worked job.

    What I hope -

    To be a guitarist in a metal band almost nearing the level of Maiden/Dream Theater. Have a beautiful and really nice wife and a nice home. Still watching cricket. Posting messages in half a dozen forums.


    What I SHOULD hope, acc to some people (such as... my parents?) -

    To have graduated from IIT (Indian Institute of Technology) and get a decent job which pays well. Have a nice wife and home.

    Great thread!

    Me. Hmm.... 27 years old. This is what I have to say:
    1. I will be on Earth.
    2. I might be having long hair.
    3. I will have no facial hair.
    4. I will be in search of internal happiness.
    5. I will still be disrespecting women, as the things seem so far.
    6. I will be posting if CW still will rule (Except I don't get kicked out of here.).

    Hah! With Blind Guardian lyrics in your sig, I picked you as a DT fan right from the start. Welcome!

    Mind you, when you're talking Maiden/DT, you are talking vastly different levels of technical expertise!

    Personally, I'm a DT fan from way back having been a member on MikePortnoy.com before it went to crap over a year ago. I've been in a few DT-like bands but am now in a band which plays more of your Planet-X stuff in terms of style. And, better yet, I'm a guitarist.

    Errrr, anyway in 10 years time I hope to be a professional recording artist and/or making my cricketing comback from obscurity to a decent level of cricket.

    Hey great, ur a BG fan too. I thought BG fans were limited to Europe, Brazil, a few Australians and me. Wait! Your Aussie too.


    Yeah, DT and IM as different as two great bands can be. I'd like to be able to play like Petrucci if I'm the only decent guitarist in my band or like Adrian Smith if there's someone like Dave Murray.

    Too bad u live a "bit" far from my place. Or else we could have jammed sometime.

    Fred Flintoff will have 10,000 Test runs, 350 Test wickets and you'll still not rate him!
