Preferred Name: iolite or Eddi

Date of Joining Staff: 23rd August 2009

Staff Roles: Mod and Admin

Background to Username: I adore crystals and have many in various forms. One of my favourite pieces is a pendant with Iolite and I happened to be wearing it when I signed up to ACC.

Background to Avatar: It's to represent my interest in AC, colours and chakras as well as showing both cultures that have shaped me - Indian and British.

Favorite AC Game: WW for the portability and animal pictures. GC for the variety of events.

Favorite Color: Blue-Lilac

Hobbies: Gardening; cross-stitching; logical puzzles; reading and learning - especially about holistic therapies; yoga; watching NFL & Formula 1 on TV; attending sporting events especially car races, cricket & American football but best of all, meeting up with friends.

A Little Bit About Me: I was born in London, England and had a fabulous, exhilarating and privileged lifestyle until the age of 35 simply because a capital city has many unique experiences to offer. For 20 years, I was a manager in the leisure industry, working 12-16 hours a day and recognised as one of the best operators in the field, but I also suffered from chronic illnesses. By the time I turned 40, I managed to turn it all around and now live a more relaxed life by the beach. I'm currently studying various holistic therapies because I hope to help others.

Keno123 asked:
"As head of the R&D sect of staff, what was the first emotion that you felt when "ACC: Project Reboot" had its first live update? How was the overall experience of getting the project to get to its anticipated kick off? "
My Answer: The first thing I felt was pride. I was so incredibly proud of the team, including those that had already left the team before we went live. Everyone contributed and I'm so lucky to be working with such a great bunch of people. Pride was quickly followed by joy.... and relief.

The overall experience was a roller-coaster. It started so incredibly well. Quite a few features including the Quick Markup had already been coded 6-8 weeks into the project. After that, we just hit a whole host of problems and delays. It certainly became frustrating for a while and even when we were in Beta Testing, there were inexplicable issues. However, the team kept going and with each delay, they continued coding more features so it all worked out in the end.

I'm incredibly impressed by the work ethic of the team and their resilience. I can also already see that the new additions are going to be just as fabulous!

Bobzco asked:
"What is your most/least favorite NFL team?"
My Answer: I don't have a single favourite team but the one I've supported the longest (a whopping 30 years) is the New York Giants. I've also followed the Broncos and Dolphins for 25 years (ish) and the Colts in the same year that Tony Dungy began coaching them.

I've not got a least favourite team. As long as there is an NFL game to watch, I'll watch it.

deadmanwalking asked:
"If you had 1 Million Pounds/Dollars, what would you do, with them?"
My Answer: I'd invest it and cash in part of the interest every once in a while to help certain charities - I may even start one up. Some of my family in India own schools. One in particular is for orphans and I'd definitely want to help the kids there.

Roze909 asked:
"Do you like Xbox? Do you play it at all?"
My Answer: Sorry to say that I've never used it. I had a ZX Spectrum when I was a teenager. After that, due to a hectic lifestyle, I didn't pick up gaming or buy a console until 2007 when I bought a DS. Very soon after that, I bought Animal Crossing and guess where that led me?

Since then, I've still not had the time to look at other consoles or play many games.
