    In the interests of brevity most of the information is in my profile. However, I am willing to swear on my great grandmothers' knees that I am over 25 years of age.

    I have a three year old son and a wife. She does not like games, but I do :)

    I expect that when my marriage falters due to "over gaming", I'll be pushing for custody of the computer..:twisted: Actually its a pentium IV 2.3 ghz so it probably doesn't run anything too modern.

    [Puts right arm in the air] I solemnly affirm that I have read your AUP, forum guidelines and FA-Q. I love a good trilogy and I accept what's in them.

    The games I like: any. I suppose my first love is Operation Flashpoint and I am told that if I possessed them, the Battlefield series would be good. I also like flight sims, space shootemups/trading games, Civilisation series, MOO (Masters of Orion) II, Bards, Tale, Unreal series, Doom I, II, III, Hitman series. Oh, and any other game that might let me pursue my love of sniping (No, I've never been to Washington).

    I am good mates with one of your members: Gilderan. Although he may deny this when he sees this post.

    My interests: I'm probably running a risk in saying that my hobbies are golf, masturbating, and strangling animals as I realise that alot of people don't like golf. (My apologies to Monty Python for that small act of theft).

    I'm located in Brisbane, Australia (not Brisbane California), which is a great place to get things done (if you have enough money and paper bags to supply it in).

    As for other Clans, I'm not in any. I like to think its because I like to be a free agent, but its probably more to do with my lack of hand eye coordination.

    My gaming history: Well, it all began about 30 years ago when two brothers living in a dry creek bed discovered 'Pong'. Remember those little units you could attach to the TV? I've been in love with games ever since. Actually it probably began well before that with the 'Pinnies'.

    Oh, and later the Commodore 64's. They were the best! Ah yes the humble beginnings of hacking, sorry I meant 'shareware'. My life has been one great big upgrade curve ever since.

    As my son is only 3, I can still clearly remember the 'dream time' of staying up all night drinking with mates and playing games until my eyes hung out. Even so, I look forward to the odd session with other like minded people.

    Please let me know if you need any further information in determining my membership.

    Thanks for reading this.

    Regards,

    Money_sh0t

    ...and you had to put my name in all that!!!

    He IS as mad as he sounds - and that's while he is sober!

    As insane a post as this - I am happy to play parole officer to Money if you all wish.

    He also forgot to mention that he is a lawyer too.

    MS just called to say that Bigpond had shaped his account - should be back to normal tomorrow. Now I wonder how someone like MS would have exceeded his "download" limit?

    Im not sure if your system is up to playing Bf2 or for that matter if BF2 is up to being played but thats another story.

    But im sure there are plenty of ppl who are ready to die by a single shot sniper kill over 260 mtrs away.

    Any how im sure you will find plenty of fellow Toggers to kill no matter what game you play.

    Welcome and enjoy

    You call that an application for TOG membership!!!? I'm putting you on ZULU instant toilet-wash duty. I want those toilets so clean that I can eat off them! Then after that, run down to Pizza Hut and get me a gamesdeal. I don't care about the game as long as it's BF2, and you start to play it ASAP. Then I want those pizzas served on the toilets you just washed! Now get moving PRIVATE!!!

    Thanks for the warm welcome guys.... Its clear I will be amongst my own kind!!

    Now all I need is some pocket money for games. When I my wife wants to know why I need the money, I'll tell her I'm blowing it all on Viagra.

    Cheers
