I have been playing games for some time. Immigrated to Canada to be at home in the wifes, Darque, home province of Quebec. I know naff all French but the locals have yet to run me out of town with pitchforks and poutine.
I am a developer by trade, 4GL exciting Business Applications, at present and work for myself whilst I sell my body to a company in the U.K which means I tend to have to work to GMT hours whilst being EST. I usually catch the start and end of The Romantics stream usually taking a little nap in the afternoons.
Past clan history:
[CiC] - CableiNet Clan (TFC)
[:)] - Team Smile (TFC)
[SHS] - Special Half-Life Services (TFC)
REDEMERS - UT200#
HH - Head Hunters (WoW)
QRGR - Queens Own Ghurka Rifles (Planetside)
Blood Legion (Planetside)
I started out gaming with a small community gamers on Cable iNet ISP back in the day and begin admining TFC servers with them shortly afterwards. Later the ISP was bought out by blueYonder and the community grew along with the server pool. Wireplay shortly merged when gaming ISP's began dropping off the radar and the community grew into byGames. Virgin media bought out BlueYondr and the gaming division was shuttled off to deep space where the head of the community gave a little place to transition with on Trickery.
Played alot of WoW with Head Hunters, mostly made up of the blueyonder gaming crowd and had great gathering and met allot of fantastic people; alas as the game moved on faces and people moved onwards to other projects.
Met Darquee, my beautiful and extremely patient wife, whilst playing RP on undernet IRC network heavily white wolf themed Vampire: The masquerade & werewolf. When Valve released TFC we spent many hours of game time together in that and entered various tournaments through the various Gaming leagues at the time. I took the decision to visit her on her own turf and saved up for the air fare to Canada to come meet her face to face and pretty much decided that we did like each other and so made the effort to work out how to shorten a long distance relationship. Which seems to of worked as we've been together for 16 Years with many adventures still to come.
Served some time with Her Majesties Forces in the 3DWR as a LSW specialist in my younger years.
Had various jobs from Wood/Lathe machine operator, database design, warehouse worker / supervisor, current Developer.
I Enjoy the Romantics community spirit inside stream and outside of it and look forward to seeing the community grow in the many years to come. Much love from us both.
