    Too long, my HWC friends!

    Hello and welcome to all the newcomers, and warm greets to the oldtimers!



    I've missed a lot, I know... and I'm way behind. I need to catch up.


    How has life been treating you all?

    All:

    thanks for the welcome back and good to see you guys too!



    I got deployed for a year and was away, and then life just kind of pulled me away from the hardware scene a bit after that. I'm running an almost 3 year old rig right now. Unheard of for me back in the day! :lol:

    I'll never forget the days when overclocking a Celeron 300 to 450Mhz was THE thing to do though.

    Women, jobs, military, family... they can take you out of the computer scene a bit sometimes.

    I'm no longer a computer animator, I'm doing active duty special work for the army. I'm the non-commissioned officer in charge of a mobilization support team. In short, I get soldiers ready to be deployed.

    I don't make games like I used to, and don't play them as often either. As such, that's why I can live with a system I built in 2002.

    I did however upgrade my video card for Far Cry and Doom (GF 6800), so I'm not a lost cause, and I know there will be a time when this P4 2.5 @ 3Ghz just won't cut it.

    Yeah that Army thing can put a damper on things. ;(

    Lol, me too mate. I just upgraded from a 1.4T-bird in the last week. Been out of the loop for so long I managed to order the wrong type of graphics card (AGP instead of PCI-e, whoops). But my new job's settling down a bit, so I'm looking to start playing HL2 and some CounterStrike again

    Good to see you back mate,

    By the way, what does BTW stand for?

    It is better to be tried by 12, than carried by 6.
