So, whats every one been upto?

Post by Dukoth the sequal » Thu Dec 25, 2014 11:08 pm

like the tile says, what's happened to everyone since this place vanished into the ether

not much on my end, graduated college, built myself a new PC, got in to table top gaming, turned 30, and I'm an uncle now to a 3 year old

Finished my degree in marine engineering (civil engineer + the extra bits) as well as grabbing junior navigator.

Plied the seas as a cadet engineer for a year with Maersk, then landed a job as 4th engineer on Nora Maersk, a container vessel. Quit that after about a month, jobless for a wee bit, then got into the offshore industry as a third engineer on Blue Beta, a converted supply vessel with a drill rig on it. Probably heading into the North Sea next week if the weather lightens up a bit to get seabed samples, to see if the seabed is stable enough for offshore wind parks.

The crew is pretty good and the job is pretty swell so far, will probably stay here for a while.

Other than that, I play the occasional game or two, mainly Dota 2, but also whatever pops up on Steam that looks fun.

Been keeping an eye on Black Desert Online, a Korean MMO that is coming to the Western audience.

Well I finished university just as this place came to a halt. Now, ironically, I'm back at university training to be an archivist/records manager. So now with this I might as well consider myself to be 23 again! (which beats being 30 in April).

I've also got in to table top gaming. It seems to be growing in popularity. Currently playing a lot of Game of Thrones LCG, which almost caused one fatality.

Woah, nostalgia.

I'm working as a tech supporter for a web host now, and spending most of my spare time gaming. Mostly single player though, since I love campaign storylines.

Seeing this place up and running brings a tear to my old eyes. Since I was last active here I finished college and law school. Now I do corporate law and real estate in the Charlotte, NC area. And as much as my girlfriend gives me grief, I still play games when I have free time. I don't preorder much anymore; but I made an exception for the Homeworld remaster.
