  1. Hmmm. All these folks. This sounds fun. I'll be up for it. It's been, what, 13 years since I've joined? I never really ventured too far outside of the Art area, but I always enjoyed spending my afternoons and evenings with a lot of you folks.
  2. Hm. I just had my 11 year anniversary back in July. I'm rarely ever around any more, and hadn't even seen the new boards until just today. I stop by every now and again to check up on the place where I spent so much time years ago. Mostly lurking because I have very little to nothing to say. lol. It seems the activity around this place is very low now-a-days, and the place seems to have downsized considerably. Ah well, just figured I'd through a cent or two into the hat and say hello to anyone who remembers me. :)

  4. I drink... I wouldn't say regularly, but enough to not be just an "occasional drinker". I drink ( but don't particularly prefer ) wine, dark liquor and light liquor all the same. My drinking is more of a curiosity type of deal. The past couple years my best friend and I have tried different types of liquor, different ways. Why? Because having a couple drinks while playing a game, or watching a movie, or just hanging out can "chill" everyone down to a level of tension that we can all withstand. Between work and home life, everyone gets a little too stressed for their own good. Everyone has their own ways of coming down. In fact, I was at the bar last night. To drink? Not really. I went to see my friend's sister's band play. We were there for about three hours. After about two, I bought one beer. Then I bought another 45 minutes later. And that was it. Now, do we over drink? Sometimes. Are we ever irresponsible? No. Do we ever drive a vehicle after drinking? No. Do we ever drink to an extent where it's dangerous to our health or the physical/emotional well being of others? No. Drinking is all about choices, if you ask me. My choice is to drink. Not everyday. Not even every four or five days. But I do. Does that make me a bad/lesser person?

  7. Gaming

    If anyone wants to play, I'm playing[B] Modern Warfare 2[/B] and[B] Rock Band 2[/B] right now for the Xbox 360. I have an assortment of other games but this is what I play most as of right now. :) Add me!
  8. Here's mine. :) I had another wall up a bit ago, but found this one a bit funnier. :P My desktop is a bit disorganized at the moment though, I've been real lazy with the cleanliness as of late, lol.

  9. [SIZE="1"]lol, I keep randomly coming back whenever there's a "remember back then" thread. I'm surprised my account still works.... Let's see if anyone actually remembers me. ;) :D [B]Nomad / NomadWandering[/B] [B]Who[/B]: I've been a member since... July 14, 2002. Never been a mod. Always a lurker. :) [B]Where[/B]: Still living in the same house I live in today. Living in Indianapolis, Indiana. Still stuck here, yessir. :P [B]What[/B]: Currently I'm working in a meat department at Kroger. I've finished my Associates for Computer Aided Drafting and Design and I'm saving up money so I can get a survivable car and an apartment. Back then I was in... middle school I believe. Man... [B]When [i.e. Back Then][/B]: I joined for the Art Studio and to discuss my love of DB/Z/GT. OB has seen me progress through using WebTV/MSNTV, a dial up desktop, two other desktops and now a laptop, as well as progressing through programs from Ulead, onwards to finally actually getting a copy of Adobe Photoshop then Illustrator and beyond. I spent most of my time in the Art forum but another portion was my "teen angst" poetry that makes even myself laugh now. And the rest of the time I spent drooling over how awesome DB/Z/GT was (and I still do that mind you :P). [B]Why[/B]: I came for the forums discussed above. I've since (since as in after going through two computer failures) been VERY scarce around here. It's nothing personal to anyone of the members, it's just my life has me moving in another direction. I always come back for a week or two, but eventually I disappear off the radar again just to return three months down the line. Most of the time it's just lurking without logging in to see what's going on in the Art Studio, but every now and then I find a topic that interests me and I have to stay to see it through. I'd like to stay this time for a decent amount of time before I vanish again, but only time will tell. One thing's for certain though: I've always loved it here at the OB, and I always will. It's one of the biggest reasons why I started to delve deeper into sigs and wallpapers and computer design in general. [B]Favorite things about the OB[/B]: -Tell you the truth, I loved everything about the OB, it's hard to pick just a few things.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE="1"]Currently I'm playing [B]Team Fortress 2[/B] for the PC. This weekend sees the release of the Sniper vs Spy update for the game and Valve has given everyone the chance to play the game absolutely free until Sunday night. The funny thing is I randomly thought of logging onto Valve's website and purchasing TF2 just because I love the game so much and when I got there, to my surprise they had just announce they were doing their free weekend. And to top it all off, during the weekend they cut the price in half so I'm definitely buying it now, lol.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE="1"][B][I]Xbox 360[/I][/B]: Jenkins W A [url=http://profile.mygamercard.net/Jenkins+W+A][img]http://card.mygamercard.net/marble/green/Jenkins+W+A.png[/img][/url] I own and actively play Rock Band 2, Guitar Hero: Metallica and Call of Duty 4. I own and would be willing to play Beautiful Katamari, Gears of War (the first one), Halo 3, Halo Wars and the Orange Box. Currently 1000/1000 on Rock Band 2, Platinum guitarist and bassist. Can play a good deal on expert drums. Medium to hard vocals if the need arises. GH: Metallica, 800(something)/1000, expert bass and guitar, hard to expert drums (with Rock Band 2 drums lol) and medium vocals. I do [B][I]not[/I][/B] care what difficulty you play on, just play on something comfortable and let's have fun! CoD4 I'm a level 48 if I remember correct in my 7th prestige I believe. Same as above, don't care if you're a newb, noob or an experienced player, I'm all for playing just for the fun of it. [B][I]WoW[/I][/B]: Name: Munchyz Server: Aggramar Alliance: Horde Class: Druid Race: Tauren I'm open for friend requests and invites from anyone at anytime. In fact, I encourage everyone to randomly send me a request, lol, you can never have too many friends, right?[/SIZE]
  13. [quote name='Boo'][size=1]If they are going to pull through with it, they should at least use zeroes for O's.[/size][/QUOTE] [SIZE="1"]I second this notion.[/SIZE] [quote name='Lrb'][FONT="Tahoma"][COLOR="DimGray"] Strictly speaking video games, a noob or "newbie" is someone that's either new to the game or is so bad that they seem like they are new to the game. A player that is [i]actually[/i] new to the game can still be a noob, but if they aren't stupid (because noob really is meant to be an insult) they're just a lowbie (low level newbie).[/COLOR][/FONT][/QUOTE] [SIZE="1"]It's always been shown that being a newb is perfectly acceptable, however, being a noob (or n00b) is highly unacceptable. Newb, being short for newbie, as you've stated, and n00b being someone who plays like a newbie. Not trying to argue or anything, that's just the context that I've always seen it given in and how I've seen it come across. I already use the word regularly in my group of friends, so it wouldn't make too much difference if it was added or not. It's not like we don't already have an array of miscellaneous other words that aren't actually [I]words[/I]. Mostly gained from flubbed versions of insults and random movies you've probably never seen, let alone heard of. Now I feel like a nerd. Thank you.[/SIZE]

  15. [quote name='Zen'][color=royalblue][size=1] Hurray for starting new habits! High five for being a bad influence![/color][/size][/QUOTE] [SIZE="1"]*high five*[/SIZE] [quote name='Pumpkin'][FONT="century gothic"][size=1] Oh...and drugs are bad. Hooka is better. [/size][/FONT][/QUOTE] [SIZE="1"]Hookah is much better indeed! I love a nice bowl and some music to just relax with. :D I love Snus, but I've also gotten to quite like Camel's Orbs and their Crush. Orbs are satisfying for those lazy chewers who dislike spitting, or in the case of Snus, discarding your pouch. lol. And Crush is a nice Camel with the oh-so-satisfying taste of Menthol. :D:D Bad, bad influences. Indeed![/SIZE]
