    Hello there!

    I'm 32 years old, a computer programmer, and a game addict for such a long time now. My first game addiction was Aztec on the Apple IIE. I was avoiding MMORPGs for years, knowing that they sounded way too cool, and I was going to lose what little semblence of a life I had left... then I bought World of Warcraft... I REGRET NOTHING!

    I'm on the Khaz'Goroth realm mainly, which coincidently is being run off the aforementioned Apple IIE if I'm not mistaken.

    I was heavily into FPS - especially UT for a time - I bought a new computer just to play Half-Life 2 - but a few weeks later I got WoW and I haven't touched it, or any other game since.

    Definitely looking forward to being part of a community where only homosexuals are gay, Chuck Norris was just the star of some god awful movies and tv shows, and where no one thinks "WTB lag lol!1!" is funny. Or at least not too many people.

    And I have read the AUP and FAQ and agree and am happy with the contents of both!

    Thanks for your time!

    Welcome to the club... hopefully you have a toon on one of our servers. (Listed in the World of Warcraft F&Q’s Sticky) check it out once you’re admitted. If you don’t and want to re-roll (because most of them are now locked) we have a few fledgling guilds on:

    US Runetotem (Alliance/Horde)
    US Ner Zhul, (Alliance)
    US Burning Blade (Alliance)
    Oceania Frostmourne (PVP Horde)
    US Emerald Dream (RP/PvP Alliance)

    Just /join TOG and give a spam someone should ‘’hear’’ you in text.

    Thank you everyone for such a warm welcome! I mainly play on Khaz'Goroth on the Alliance side, and am just starting on Jubei'Thos as Horde.

    Now to sidle on over to the lounge...

    Thanks again all - and no thanks Sereth - I get all the lag I want as part of Blizzard's subscription fee ;)

    Oh, and I forgot to mention in my app I was an Wolfenstien - Enemy Territory addict for a good while (I love being a jerky mine-laying engineer) - in pre-WoW times, might give it another burl!
