    I always look for one of these threads in a forum, but since the forum had some problems last month... I couldn't find one...

    Basically this thread is used to let everyone know some information about yourself... such as age, occupation, hobbies, gender etc. Totally voluntary of course, but it'll help everyone get to know each other and find similarities... and hopefully, people can make more connections and friends.

    Me?

    Nickname: Kip/Kip0r/Kipsta
    Reason for nickname: Weird sleeping patterns, including insomnia. In the UK "kip" means to get some sleep or "to sleep" e.g. "dude, you look tired, go and get some kip". I also know in Holland, "kip" means chicken.
    Age: 21. 22 on June 4th 2004 (same as angelina jolie )
    Occupation: Student and freelance graphic/website designer.
    Studying: Bachelors Degree in Multimedia Computer Science leading to MA in Game Design.
    Gender: Male
    Hobbies: Anything art oriented... and the 3G's (games, girls, and guns). Aside from that; learning piano and guitar, just getting into philosophy and quantum physics.
    Location: England

    That's it really. Post as much or as little about yourself as you like/feel comfortable with.

    Happy posting!

    nickname: Denden666Piek, originally Denden 100 Piek.
    Age: 17
    gender: male
    country: Holland

    I started with gaming for about ten years ago on my gameboy. I became a serious gamer about 5 years ago, when I got my first pc and psx. I switched from Sony to Nintendo when I bought the Gamecube last year. I love the Gamecube, I have a serious passion for gaming ever since I bought that thing. Favourite games are Metal Gear Solid(so I'm very happy with Twin Snakes), The Sims, Final Fantasy VII, Zelda The Wind Waker, Deus Ex and Beyond Good & Evil. Before I started to become a serous gamer, I was a movie freak(still am) and I loved a good and complex story(still do). So when I became a gamer, my favourite games were those with a good story and much influence from movies. Beyond Good & Evil is the first game I already loved before it was even clear to me what kind of game it was really going to be. I fell in love with the first couple of screenshots I saw, and I got excited with the little information there was about this game. I watched the game closely, and now it's one of my favourite games, just like I already knew for certain a long time before release. I love a game like Beyond Good & Evil, because it also could have been a beautiful movie with a great story, characters, and good 'acting', but it still succeeds to be a wonderful and above all playable game. I'm a very serious gamer(although not a very good one), I love my hobby more than anything else(except for movies, my family and my friends of course).

    Here is mine:

    Nickname: Clomer (I put the 1 in because Clomer wasn't available... grrr), I also managed to nab the name "Shauni" on Warcraft 3's Lordaeron realm.
    Reason for nickname: Now this is a long history. I first used the name back in 1987 when I got F-19 Stealth Fighter for my parents' 386. I wanted a cool codename, and "Clomer" is what my 7 year old brain came up with. However, I didn't actually use it online until a few years ago. For a while, (when I first started going online on local BBS's in 1991) I went by "Link" from Zelda fame, but when Ocarina of Time came out in 1998, the number of "Link"'s on the internet grew exponentially and I got sick of competing for the name. So I decided to change to something else, and remembered the name I had used in F-19.
    Age: 24 (8 December 1979)
    Occupation: Student studying to become a classical musician (I play the cello)
    Gender: Male
    Hobbies: Music and video games, mainly.
    Here's a new category: Gaming experience: I have been playing video games since the release of the NES in 1986, and have been a loyal Nintendo fan ever since. I own all 4 major Nintendo consoles (NES, SNES, N64, GCN), and in fact have all but the N64 hooked up to my TV right now. My favorite game is Beyond Good and Evil (not a big surprise for me to say that here, but I would say so on other game's forums too), other favorites include The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Metroid Prime for consoles, and WarCraft 3: The Frozen Throne and StarCraft: Brood War for computer.

    anyways, on to me:

    Nickname: Lynx-0- (Just say Lynx, i had to use the -0- cuz Lynx was taken. thanks a lot Chrono Cross
    Reason for Nick: Well, back when i got a PC and discovered online gaming, i knew i needed a callsign. I played a ton of Half-Life online, even back then. I used the name TheRock for awhile, and was unsatisfied by my unoriginality. I needed something better. I was talking with my bro one night, and we decided to start a clan, ]UPS[ (United Pimp Service ) we're the most non-serious clan around, we play just to have fun. i got to thinking about one of my fav strategy games, mechcommander. my fav mechwarrior in the game was Lynx, and so i picked that for my name. Many people think i got the name Lynx from Chrono Cross, which is my favorite RPG. not true, i picked Lynx long before that game.

    Hey guys, just an idea. i think we should start a seperate thread where we could post pictures of ourselves, or something.

    LOL this seems like a rant! i type too much sometimes... hahaha

    Okay, Kippahh, I kinda prefer my shy anonymity, but y'all are starting to feel like family, anyway, so here goes: (embarrassed) (BTW, your sig *is* *a w e s o m e*! Verry nice!)

    Handle: sysMangler
    Reason for handle: From the RSX-11M OS internal username on the first graphics system I ever managed (the PDP, below), bestowed by my hilarious, word-mangling sidekick, Abbalooby (wherever you are).
    Occupation: Self-unemployed IT consultant (looking for work). Formerly hardware/software support manger for a digital mapping vendor.
    Gender: Male
    Hobbies: Getting a life, Becoming a Person (formerly puzzles, astronomy, guitar, dirt bikes, and kites)
    Gaming experience: I was never much into "games," as I considered managing computer graphic systems an all too-consuming game, in and of itself. I remember one trainee, after his first day, remarking, "You mean I get to do this all day, and I never have to put in a quarter?" I did, however, manage to drop a few of my own quarters into Williams' Defender coin-op arcade
    (OMG what a rush! This is it! Sound and all!)
    1st Computer Game: Adventure (DEC PDP-11/70, DECUS tape)
    1st Multiplayer Game: Spacewar (Ibid.)
    1st Mac game: Myst
    1st PC Games: Putt-Putt Joins the Parade (Humongous), Microsoft Space Simulator
    Consoles: Pikachu limited edition N64, PS2
    What drew me into PC/console gaming was my gaming partner/daughter, now age 9. (We've been gaming together since she was two. When my old PC wouldn't handle her games, I built a rig from scratch--a little overkill at the time . Anxious to see what it could do, I got Rainbow Studio's Motocross Madness, and was blown away. Back in the old days, I remember waiting over 24 hours for a single 3D frame to render--weeks for a few seconds of animation from a room full of hardware. Racing my true-physics dirtbike over a textured/shaded digital terrain in real-time blew my mind. When she saw Insomniac's Spyro, I had to get a PS2. Must admit, I enjoyed helping her, especially with Stewart Copeland's soundtrack (former Police keyboardist).
    Location: Texas (formerly Dubai)
    Birthday: Friday the 13th, April
    As a single father, I have found gaming together a good interactive vehicle for quality time, and am always involved. I got BG&E, largely due to the UK.Playstation game selector questionnaire suggestion, and follow-up reviews. I should note the UK site has *far more* BG&E coverage than the US site. I think BG&E is a landmark step in the right direction for the future of interactive gaming and entertainment. I also find its current state quite an enigmatic puzzlement.

    Better stop--more I'd like to say, but this may not be the the best thread. I really hope you'll hit (and enjoy) some of the links I inserted on this brief nostalgic trip down memory-jogger lane. Hmm... I keypunched my first FORTRAN program in 1969.

    Shanui! 13, and you have your own web site! You *go* girl!
