hi everyone,

good to see some familier faces around...now i know that if i have a problem, it will definately get solved. not that it didnt happen back in Antionline.

am not in a programmer or a scriptwriter like most of the people here, am a sailer. i sail the big ships upon the high seas. and whenever i am down, i try to spend as much time on the net as possible.

will try to post my contibutions whenever possible

cheers

P.S. i heard there's a bar in here somewhere........need directions.

No you don't... You swallow them so we can't get them, and then you take them out of your faeces when you get home :P :D :P


Welcome bagggi! A sailer, eh? Cool. How big is the boat? // "big ships" sounds nice :P

"big ships" the kind that go ocean sailing. mostly carrying cargoes from country to country.

last ship was fun. we were delievering vodka from Turkey to States for bottling......something in the range of 9000 tonnes. mind you, nobody misses a few hundred liters from that. :wink:

you run out of drinks?.......no problem.....just walk down to the store and pump out a couple of bottles and you'r good again

deadly combination when you are trying to kill a few mercinaries in Farcry.

by the way was wondering if anyone here registered to play in the counter strike tournament by gamespot
In Stride's Ridiculously Long Lasting Tournament, 48 five-player teams will have the chance to show off their combat skills and compete for bragging rights as the best CS:S squad on GameSpot. Only the teams with the best skills have a chance to advance to the next match.

1st Place - The winning team will win a trip to San Francisco, CA and a free pass to the GameSpot After Hours event on October 14, 2006, where they'll compete against the other Ridiculously Long Lasting Tournament winners for the $1,000 Grand Prize!

Hmm... Thanks for the heads up! Are you a CS:S player yourself? If we can round up five people, then we can have a half decent team to compete with... Byte, Foxy, you (if you play CS:S/are interested), Shipp and myself :D We might be able to beat a clan or two :tongue1: :D


I'm going to sign us up, in case they run out of places (if they haven't already)... And, if we can't put together a team, we'll pull out. But at least we'll have the option to play if we want to :P

i have been practicing..

i registered with gamespot (which is free) and they keep having these tournaments every few months or so. last one they had was for FEAR, capture the flag. the match is broadcasted on the net through live feed where everyone logged in can see both the teams playing, with the judges to make sure nobody's cheating.

the winning team of five got $1000 each.
second place gets $500 each.

last couple of tounaments include- unreal, nascar, sniper, ghost recon.

my problem was, i could never put a team together. max two more people. but always needed five.

plus for counter strike: source.....the registrations are closed. the matches have already started and the final of the first group is this friday. then i geuess they are going for the second round, but i dont know yet. logg into gamespot, find the tournament section. and watch the live feed. this will give you an idea how the teams are and if we could take them or not.
i tell you some of these clans are good. like real good. the kind which have been playing since counter strike first came out.

Aye... Like CAL good. I'm not saying we'd win this, but it would definitely be a blast :D

It's a pity the registrations are closed... Rats... We'll have to wait for next time ;)

Oh, and feel free to join the TAZ clan if you wish.. See the Server forum ;) 8)
