    Hello all.

    I'm floating in to play PlanetSide with you.

    I'm a U.S. resident - Oklahoma, 26 years old, and I'm a medical student and research tech. I live with my wife, two puppies, and a cat that I sometimes forget I own.

    I'm a veteran BF1942 player who never got around to joining a team, although I often wish I had. I feel like I've missed something by just playing the public servers. For right now though, my interest is in PlanetSide, and I look forward to giving a good effort for the team!

    Welcome JXai.

    Quick question though.. how does one enuciate "JXai"?

    Might as well clear that up, before Cailith et. al. mangles it beyond all recognition on TeamSpeak. :lol:

    Hi JXai, welcome to TOG, I received your email, I trust that GnR has taken good care of you already.

    I'll add you to the members group, in the mean time please read the FAQ and about on the main site.

    Cheers and see you in PlanetSide!

    Welcome JXai.
    Can I make a guess that you pronounce it with a silent X? Like Jai? Don't keep us in suspense.

    Thanks for the welcome, gents! It's good to meet another group of gentlemen (and ladies of course, since I believe there are some?) on the internet. I'm a long time member of Band of Brothers, a club dedicated to the Combat Mission wargames, and it is the only club/forum that I've ever hit 1000+ posts on. Who knows if this will be the second...but it seems like there are good guys here, and I appreciate that.

    As for the pronunciation of my handle "JXai" - no one in the 8 years that I have used it has EVER asked me how to pronounce it. So you will all be the first to know.

    When I was in high school 10 years ago, I had an impulse to write short stories and distribute them to my friends. They tended toward the darker side and were sometimes violent or profane. Because I didn't want the administration of the school to "catch" me with them, I used the pen name "Jonathan Xai"

    "J" stands for my first name - Jonathan, and when I think of the handle, I simply pronounce "Jay". Then, the second part is "Zie" like "High" or "Die".

    Whenever I say it in my head, it is "Jay-Zie" with the emphasis on the J...so almost completely two words in one.

    Now you know! Thanks for asking!

    Welcome JXai, I think you'll find that you will fit right in here :D

    I have only been a TOGer for the past week (almost) and I love it, enjoy your stay.

    Cheers
