    What a brilliant idea. Thanks for putting that forward. ;)

    I haven't paid much thought on it with the recovery to my knee op and spending up big on Apple products and selling old PC's, laptops and phones.
    It will not end here either. I have TV's, DVD players, HD recorders, furniture, PC games etc etc.

    Oh you wanted to know what was going on with the Console Div. :p

    I did send Cadder a PM just to see how he was the other day. The whole of Queensland must be cadded up by now.

    What ever happens I would vote for a much simpler, streamline format than this year.

    No matter how good it may or may not have been, it was a hell of a lot of work.

    Cadder is still DC or has he stepped down?

    Think he still holds the title but have not seen him for some time.

    RL is effecting how much any of us can do at present. That and new release games and problem solving issues.

    My PS3 is still out of commision with the new slim replacement at least 2 weeks away. Playing PS2 at present. Jak & Daxter games.

    Not sure how I'm going to go if I can;t get the old one up and running to at least get my save games off of it.

    I haven't had a reply from Cadder yet. He must be busy. I'm friends with him on fb as well and it's also quiet there.

    I'm still floating around but not much is happening in the Wii department at the moment.

    I'm not very knowledgeable on forumy type thingys but I'll help in any way possible.

    Donkey Kong Returns is released tomorrow....once I get that I may become slightly preoccupied :D

    I have some holidays coming up so I have some time to clean up the division and get it ready for 2011. I would need temp admin access.

    I don't want to tread on any toes though. :eek:

    Side note: What games are still being actively played by TOGers? CoDMW2, M.A.G., BFBC2, etc.?

    I'm playing Black Ops on and off, when I can, other then that I don't have any other multiplayer games except for Saints Row 2 and a few arcade titles.

    I tried to see if we could get a community playdate set for us on the 360, but I got no replies so i pretty much gave up with that. I cant force people to be interested ya know lol. Hmmm Though inventing a mind control device might be fun.... *scratches my chin*

    Since I lost my ps3 I have not been able to arrange squat. Replacement might come later this week or next then I might be on for some Assassins Brotherhood, Black Ops.

    @ Zoeinx: This time of year is a bad time to try an organize events. People are either busy or waiting till Christmas / Boxing day to get the game in question. Best time to start "events" is mid January when people have had time to settle down and they know what games they have / like.

    @ George & A1 and all squad leaders: Assuming Cadder is pre-occupied with real life stuff, do you think I should ask for temp admin access so I can work on the division? As we have not heard from Cadder, is this rude of me? I don't want to usurp his leadership or create problems. More to the point do you guys even want me to get involved? Would one of you guys like to tidy up the division and get it ready for 2011?

    PONG!
    Damn, some latency issues there.
    Hi all, yes, I'm sill alive, and still DC in title, if not by activity. Things are just busy busy in Cadder RL - an age old excuse, but happens to be true in this case :/
    I haven't had any time to play games, let alone perform my forum duties or do any site dev work :/.

    PM, I'd be more than happy for you to do some admin stuff. (Do you want your old title back? ;) ) and I'll message Bay to arrange it so.
    Hope you're all well as we hurtle toward the traditionally-even-busier Christmas period....

    PS: George, My Missus has discovered Singstar. You may have seen my account pop up online a few times over the last couple of weeks - that's on the kids' PS3. Mine is still , sadly, gathering dust :/

    PPS: PM, I've just requested you be made DVC :D

    ...even if you only choose it to be temporary, I think you deserve to be acknowledged thus.
