    I go by Droler in most games, RN is Paul. I am 37 (as in "I'm 37! I'm not old!")

    First system was a coleco Pong. First arcade game I played until I ran out of money was Space War by Cinematronics.

    I built a racing car cockpit in 1994 to play PC racing games; now it's the MAME cabinet I'm trying to keep updated.

    I play loads of MMOG's and beta test every game I can get my hands on to beta test. Look me up on the Pinnacle and Victory servers in CoH!

    I read and agree to the FAQ and am really looking forward to this site as a gaming resource where good spelling is appreciated and you don't have to be a baggy pants wearing slacker to talk gaming! Now git off my lawn!

    I have four kids all who play games. Only my 23 yr old son has ever beaten me in any PC Game, but my daughters (twins) can kick my butt on any console game! Yes, the math is right - my son (by my wife's last marriage) is 23 and I'm 37...

    Alzheimer's!

    Naturally while extolling my own glory and tooting my own horn, I forget the obvious.

    I'm from Louisiana, USA....born and raised. I do wear shoes, I have all my own teeth, and only a very slight accent. However, I do know how to cook Cajun foods from scratch, and have seen alligators in the wild all my life (some in my own back yard).

    Thanks for the warm welcome!

    Welcome to TOG Droler - OK, you're in :)

    Access to private forums granted - take a look around, see what's what. There should be some form of sticky post(s) in most game forums to help you get involved - if you can't find what you're looking for, just ask away... you'll either be ignored, ridiculed or warmly received and assisted.

    Some people seem to achieve all of these in one reply post :)

    Have fun!

    Welcome to TOG Droler,
    Better be careful cause if you hang around here long enough you might need to change that name to Drooler. :wink: :)

    Come over and check out the America's Army forums sometime.
