I haven't been a very good role model, having never posted about myself.   Though I knew most of you to one degree or another, already.

My name is Mike (beer m0nkey on XBL), and I live in Cincinnati.    My career is essentially database administration and software development.   I have a lovely wife, Angi, and 2 crazy dogs (one a pound pup, and one a rescue dog that had been abused).

I've been gaming in arcades since 1975 and at home since 1977 (Atari 2600).

I quit gaming during college but started back up a couple of years later.   I've been on the internet for 18 years, and years ago I was deeply involved in internet gaming communities like rec.games.video.*, #vidgames, and #rgvc.   I was involved with the creation and execution of CinciClassic (new site), a classic gaming event that is about to return for it's fifth iteration though we haven't had one in a few years.

I play way too many games.

Greetings everyone! I'm a very new member...just hours old here. Thank goodness Beermonkey decided to post over on the Team17 forums and invited me here.

My name is Mark, and I'm do Mainframe Storage Management support for a living. I've been gaming since the early 70's in both the videogame/pc as well as boardgame realm.

I'm on Xbox Live (gamertag: Geese) along with my wife, Wendy (gamertag: FullCry) - she has her own Xbox, because split-screen just wasn't gonna cut it! We currently live in North Carolina, USA.

We're not biased to any platform, we have most all of em, including a couple of nice gaming PCs.

I simply love Halo2, but also despise playing online usually. I just can't take the constant barrage of 12 year old racial epithets, so I usually just play custom games with other known friends on LIVE.

Thanks again for inviting me over!

Glad you could make it, Geese. We are not quite as, ahem, tight-assed serious as the Team 17 forum. A two Xbox family, good going! We have a couple of Carolinians here, and our family is moving down there soon. Most of us are online every night, so you won't want for good players. Our Gamertag thread is here.

Also, welcome to Brak, HoolieMan, dalebr and txnplano1 (Saucy Jack!).

We mostly play Halo 2 online with friends.   Some games are worse for playing the public than others, and Halo 2 is the absolute bottom of the barrel.

Hey all. I finally registered here. Who am I? Let's see how good your memory is:

Among my favorite games are the Colin McRae Series
I live west of the Mississippi
My gamertag starts with "Freak" and ends with "Tornado"

Need more hints?

Hi Ed!  I created a Links tourney at XSN to celebrate your arrival.  Please join us if Links is still in your rotation.

You wanna know how good my memory is? I saw the name "tendril" and thought, "Isn't that the name Ed uses for his music?" Gotcha! Welcome.

Hi Ed!  Are you still on Live?  I think I played one game with you once (RalliSport 2, if I can recall).
