    Hi all have read the FAQ and the AUP and am pushing 51 ... must admit I feel old since the majority here seem to be in the 30s and 40s ... oh well.

    I have been playing computer games since the BBC came out (may be a bit old for most of you).

    I currently play Everquest 1 almost nightly and with the purchase of a new Nvidia 6800GT am starting to dabble in FarCry and Splinter Cell. But am thinking with my P4 3.0 Ghz I am getting a little cpu limited .. oh where does the spiral end?

    I look forward to more interaction on the boards and will have a look at AA and NwN although the top down looking games in general I don't like.

    See you all around ... am in Canberra, Australia :oops:

    Welcome mate.

    Don't be troubled by your perceived lack of PC power... from the look of it your machine outstrips many of the machines most TOG'ers are currently running on. And the spiral never seems to end. Just as soon as you get to the top, another layer gets chunked on above it and you'll have to climb it again. :)

    We're starting to get a few more Canberrians here which is good - soon you fellas should be able to get yourselves a Canberra drinkies. :)

    One of the Admins will come about and wave their Admin Weenie Wand of Wonder over you and grant you membership shortly. After you've got membership, have a wander around our private forums, sign up for whatever game you are interested in and let everyone else start giving you some warm welcomes. :)

    Welcome, OldnBold.

    Added you to the member base - feel free to cruise around the private forums at your leisure. I don't think we have many EQ1 players in here, but there's lots of other stuff going on, and no doubt you will find one or more games to keep you happy!

    Feel free to ask any questions, someone will help out... or at least they'll try.

    Have fun!

    G'day mate. Welcome to TOG. Don't worry about your age. That's what this group exists for (BTW, I think Claw is currently the oldest member at 69, and he's still playing an FPS called Enemy Territory :) ).

    Why not head on down to the ET forums and check out this game that is a free download?
