    Hello.

    Well it is good to find a great outfit like this one!

    I thought I would introduce myself....
    My name is Kim, I am 34 and I live on the northside of Brisbane with my husband, dog and cat. We have been playing games for years and only a couple of months ago found games arena and now TOG as well. Love playing BF1942 but get really annoyed with those playing with cheats on....

    I have wondered around with MOH, and a couple of others but just keep going back to BF.

    I would like to thank Calith (oops Cailith....many apologies) and Father for their prompt emails.

    We quite often have Lan parties at our home, but I have found that I have improved since playing online. I also notice that more women are starting to enjoy gaming although most of them are 12....LOL

    Keep smiling ;-)

    I think you're our first FEMALETOG member.

    Oh well Father, guess you'll have to rewrite the rules of no females allowed. :wink:

    In any event... Welcome. :)

    Welcome j@mie.

    Derelict - I'm pretty sure that LoneWife is female. I'm sure you, and we, will be put right sooner rather than later.

    Welcome Jamie from the oldest of the Old Gamers. 8)
    You'll find these forums (or is it fora?) a welcome break from the 12 year olds.

    I too was convinced LoneWife was female till I heard her speak on TeamSpeak. I wonder if she contrived a way to get her partner to speak a couple of times? Hmmm. I just read in an April edition of NewScientist that someone has invented software that analyses written works and can tell if the author was male or female.

    pfft!

    Hi J@mie, welcome to TOG, where lovely old farts abound. :)

    Why my gender was ever a question I don't know! :D

    J@mie says she's female; with a boys name (mostly)
    LoneWife is a female style name and you think i am a bloke?

    Just who is confused here?

    Anyway, yes, I am a bloke, a rather handsome one too. However, that doesn't excuse some TOGs from laying the hard word on me in IRC and MSN. You know who you are. And you'r probably married, so if you want my silence then send $10 per month. Contact me for postal addess.

    Welcome to TOG. I hope you enjoy your new gaming community. If I ever give my wife 1 hour to learn PlanetSide on my faster computer she might join up as well. That should happen sometime this year (we'll see) :wink: . We gamed together in another online game (Tanarus) which we enjoyed very much. Unfortunately she got quite a bit better than me so male pride prevents me from speaking to her anymore :eek:. Other than that things are going very well.

    Regards,
    GnR
