    Hi All,

    I am 31 years old and would like to join TOG. I am mostly interested in BF1942 (i know another one), live in Australia (melbourne) and work in the isp industry.

    I have been using computers since 80 (osbourne 1) but i'm still sure most of you guys could teach me a thing or two.

    I really like the concept of TOG as i thought i was the only "non-kid" playing these days.

    Anyway, greatly looking forward to your response...

    It's really great to see so many "Older Gamers" coming out of the woodwork and joining TOG for some fun and games. Nothing too serious (unless you want to be), and most important of all, no immaturity (tantrums, flaming, and the like) and "leet speak". :mrgreen:

    It's almost like an OGA meeting around here - Hi, I'm Janus. And I'm an Older Gamer.

    All: Hello Janus.

    ;)

    It's great to see that Father's vision is taking off.

    Roll up, Older Gamers! (literally, in some cases!)

    Welcome, HHD, Welcome. Father will make you a full member as soon as you've confirmed that you've read the FAQ and agree to clean up anything you spill around here. ;)

    Hey HellDad, threw in AHA (Another Hated Acronym) in there for creative purposes. I hope that's ok.

    Hi Guys,

    Hey Bunyip - what is Galaxies like? Is it some sort of 3d MUD or something?

    I have gone to many websites on it and have not been able to figure it out yet.

    Hello, my name is Bennett. It's been 20 hours since I last played online. ;)

    Welcome to TOGville HHD! Once you've been made a member by Father, shoot GhostDog or Cailith a mail if you're interested in playing in the BF1942 ladder. :)

    Or, in true TOG BF tradition, you could just shoot GhostDog or Cailith.

    Or Bennett. :mrgreen:

    Hey mate, welcome!

    Either GD or myself can help you out with BF, just jump into the private forums when Father makes you a full member, and we'll lob you into one of the two teams.

    :)

    No no Vamp, I've only ever done it accidentally - honest :oops:

    Welcome to HouseholdDog. Looking forward to teaming up with you in BF. Do you actually own a dog? What sort? We love our household dogs P&O (Phoebe & Oliver the spoilt rotten beagles).
