I've been waiting years for this moment!

I'm still living in Missoula, MT, attending the University and Majoring in Management Information Systems/Computer Science. I plan on moving to the Bay Area once I'm done with this stuff.

I should really be drinking Bawls while browsing the forums, that stuff was so 6 years ago.

Good to see the familiar faces!

Well, I moved to the Portland area. Have had some ups and downs. Finished my degree, met my true love and just got engaged.

I loved playing on the NS servers in college. One summer I was living on campus and taking classes, had no friends around and basically met my social needs on Life Support. Just hearing human voices in that awful apartment kept me going. Also it was amazingly fun.

I've been looking forward to NS2 for a couple years. The beta was super rough but I'm totally digging the final product. I've hoped OldF would pick up on it with some new energy, and lo! It has come to pass! You'll see me in the server.

Not sure how married life will blend with video games, as I'll also have a step son. Life is an adventure.

Still in Seattle. Got married a few years back. Just moved into our new place. Worked for a couple of startups since the NS1 days. Currently working for Research In Motion/Blackberry. Feels like I'm a honorary Canadian these days. Still flying.

Starting to write in sentence fragments. Must be getting old.

Found this old mp3 of "A million res nodes" in my NS1 files that reminded me of playing on the old servers.

See you guys on the new server.

Haha, great mp3 find, Plan9!

And I see you still have your marine aim and lerk skills in place, without having played much?! :) I still remember the days when we would challenge ourselves and just use pistols only to take on the alien team. :)

Hahaha, I'd forgotten about that. Clamatius and I should port the Whichbots to NS2 someday :)

Whoa, a lot of you are from Oregon! Nice!

Plan 9 -- Yeah... good times. We did it against non-bots too though. That was always fun. Seems like the pistol in NS1 is stronger... but I'm not sure. I think Professor Nikon (he has literally taught me something new about the game every time I've played with him the past month) will know. Haha. :)

Is it just me or do the pics on both those posts look more like NS1 then they do NS2... Pretty sure that's the Half Life engine. Not sure who they think they're fooling... o.0

Excellent! It will be a pleasure wiping out the marine menace with you once again. I recently had a nice hardware upgrade myself. NS2 runs like a dream now. It's almost too pretty... distracting even. I have yet to muster the courage to lower my visual settings :P
