    :D Hi all. Pleased to meet yez. Tripped over the TOG Site the other day & thought I'd fit the profile, so here I am.
    I'm a 45 YO father of 4 from 8-26YO & it's the 8 YO who kicks my behind at games. Can't have that!! Although I kicked off with a C64 many years ago, I only purchased every Console marketed since, until a year ago, as my wife had said she'd leave me if I got a PC 'cause she knew I'd be sittin' at it a fair bit. I finally convinced her that she needed one & she allowed me to purchase it 4 her & I'm allowed to use it. Phew !!
    I've only had ADSL for a few months here now & didn't play On-Line 'til then 'coz I'd seen my brothers frustration with his 56k connection. So I still struggle a little with the Mouse/Keyboard usage for gameplay as I'd only become adept at Joystick/Gamepad but I,m definitely gettin' better & GOD it's fun. I have ET, BF1942, MOHAAS, Quake, Half-Life etc. Keep goin' back to ET but would like to understand BF1942 better as it looks GR8.
    Yes, I have read the information in theFAQ/AUP thread & I agree. I look forward to hearing from yez & perhaps havin' this old dog learn some new tricks

    Welcome Feral. :) You don't mind me calling you Feral, do you? No? Good.

    I've just made you a member, so you now have access to the private forums and all the goodness contained therein.

    Jello is our CoD Division Captain, while Cailith is the BF'42 Captain until the end of this season. EnglishBob is the head-honcho for BF:V. 'Fodda has already pimped the ET Division. :D Plenty of opportunity for you to join TOG teams and get those TKs happening.

    Catch you around!
