i just been accepted as a member of Per so i must say (only) a few words about me :P
what you will read is more like a short psychoanalysis of my gaming history in probably a bad english
i'm sooo old and lazy …..
i first seen a computer before the romanian revolution( in 1989) .. it was with punched cards and the first shooter experience was born not much after that using (not only) perforated cards as ammo(cone darts and chewed paper) in the blowgun
i first "worked" on a few computers (one amiga and the rest comodore 64) in 1991 in the 6-th grade computer lab... no shooters = => did not like it !!!
same year i bought a hand compressing air gun looking almost like a real luger with soft rubber ammo ... i will shoot with him the legs of the girls in school :D
in this period i was reading all the books of karl may published in my language and some of james clavell only because the family tv broke and with the high inflation in that period we did not have a tv for few years. That reading introduced me to what will become an fps obsession.
i started playing fps in 1992
first fps was wolf 3d in ms-dos on a 66 mhz cpu computer with 1 mhz gpu (not mine but i have now this pc -i will try to see if is still starting to see what’s on him)
my first pc was a second hand Compaq DeskPro 2000 166 mhz with an 16 mhz gpu, 48 MB SDRAM, and an dialup modem (i remember piggy banking few years for this pc and broke the bios in the first week) … and the gaming saga begins
i played since then all shooters possible (doom, duke, heretic, quake, halflife, cs, unreal, gta, postal, splinter etc)and driving and rarely strategy games(like homm 3)
almost any level based fps game i put my hand on i finished in max 3 days playing sometimes 10 hours per day
if i could not pass a level i searched for cheats online like godmode, gravity and unlimited ammo (probably that's why i like gunmoney)
in 2002 i stoped playing coz just finished university(chemistry) and decided to do serious shit not play all day and night
i erased windoza and at that time i thought slackware was the shit and never use any other os (tried a lot of os to reach this conclusion like freebsd,netbsd,sunos,qnx neutrino,sun solaris,beos, many linux flavors(all major distros), GNU, OS X on pc(ideneb iatkos), win 31 95 98 me 2000 nt xp)
i transformed playing mania in reading mania (and other manias) i read an english book in max 3 days (excepting philosophy, technical and very long books)majority in 1 day
the principle of finding a book to red is: if i don’t know something i find at least a book with that subject(often to many) and read it(read them)
i did 2 postgraduate schools (law and informatics)
i started a firm in 2008 and liquidate it this year.
i had a hiatus period of playing until i found urt on an ubuntu in 2012
a good controversy
“the scientific method” and “empirical falsification”
animals plants and fungi (organic life) I have a garden a dog and had 7 cats and 6 dogs
campers in urt ... in my team
stealing teh flag
movies: sf comedy documentary tutorials and ted talks (hate horror)
to aestivate naked in the sun (on my terrace)
inebriation without alcohol (the natural high)
inebriation with alcohol (I do my own wine and now im beginning to brew beer)
to lose sometimes (especially when is a small loss and a big knowledge gain)
i am neutral about:
almost everything until I form an informed opinion and even than i always search and sometimes sustain the other side of the argument only to remain neutral --- this is very important to me!!!
music - i liked progressive rock and electronic (like trance goa); now i like the silence
sex (not enough natural high)
campers in urt (if they are beginners)
smokers in proximity (i was a smoker for 18 years)
humans who ignore the evidence in front of them (not the ones who have a different interpretation or a different opinion )
dictatorial tendencies (like forcing of an opinion on someone else –not forcing someone to acknowledge a fact and form an opinion)
organized competitions (like olimpics)
campers in urt ... teh old ones
watching tv (a few days ago i installed my tv , turned on to see if still works after a few years and watched a few hours of FTV on mute playing urt)
violence and cruelty
fishing (did it a few times)
hunting (never did that … did had many occasions) and never buy wild animal products
well that was the short version and i omitted a few thinks …. maybe I will write a long version with punctual events or it was to much ? any questions ? am I still a Per member ?

@members I do not know
nnnniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiicccccccccceeeeeeeeeee 2 meeeeet uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!!!
1st one was a pc designed for business and not so great for games but I love it.
if i get accepted in the clan 1st i will read the stuff about u :D
no kids and don’t want any atm and need to know your mother to be your dad :P
u make me remember of a girl who offered to be my sister … and always called me brother
the simplest answer is : no I don’t take drugs to be in the state of natural high.
natural high is a state of euphoria(drunkenness) without taking external drugs
the human body has lots of drug receptors (majority in the brain and stomach) only because the body produce drugs for those receptors. if a drug not have receptors in the body is not called drug is called toxin or substance or food or any other name.
the drugs produced by the body are called neurotransmitters and regulate the functions of the body (including your mood)
u can see a list of known neurotransmitters and the receptors in the first table here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neurotransmitter examples of natural high from my experience:
when u have sex, when u r in love, when u laugh, when u r very happy, when u exit a music club or listened to music for many hours, when u watch a movie marathon, when u do physical exercise etc
u can read an detailed example here: http://www.lehigh.edu/~dmd1/sarah.html generally u need to do in excess an activity u like and stop the activity to feel the high.
I never do sunbaths drunk - one neighbor (girl) died doing that
I will tell u an episode of my inebriation with alcohol:
In 8th grade I was at a punk concert with my “punkist” buddies (i did not like punk music)
Before the concert we convened to meet in a park, when I arrived they already drunken 1 bottle of rum and told me to buy another one but of vodka not rum, I did that and when they see the bottle they all say that was a cheap bottle and no one wanted to drink it . … well i drank all the 500 ml bottle alone in front of them and after 30 min to 1 hour I was close to alcoholic coma(it was the only time I was drunk as fuck). Next, one friend carried me to his home … in the middle of a bridge I wanted to throw up and did that at the bridge end in a bush (in that place vegetation died and never recovered that year); at this home I washed my stomach 4 times with water throwing up each time.
since then I learned how much alcohol my liver can process and never exceed that quantity.
so the moral : if your liver is not trained to process the alcohol don’t drink! Learn how much alcohol your liver can process and never exceed that quantity … and eat some animal fat before drinking
I know … I’m lazy too
Well ……… see you in game then :P
nightmare nightmare nightmare
