    Hey, all -

    Quick intro to me.

    If you visit the official TF2 forums, you have seen my name before. I'm one of the two active mods there, along with Laddie13.

    I'm probably one of the oldest (age) gamers you'll come across, and I've been playing video games since the mid '70s. Got my Atari 2600 for Christmas in 1977, my first computer in 1982 (a VIC 20), built my own PC in 1985 (IBM 8086 clone), and have been working in the networking / IT field since the early 1990s, more recently working in digital advertising since 2008.
    I got into Titanfall right after Frontier Defense dropped for Titanfall 1 - and Titanfall 2 stopped me cold for other FPS. I've been a Battlefield player since the day 1942 launched, and an occasional COD player (Only played the first COD, and then the next version I played was the first Modern Warfare, and a little of the first Black Ops (mainly co-op zombie mode), but steadfast Battlefield player, Team Fortress 2, and Counter-Strike through Source before I gave that one up.

    Not a console player, though - have medical issues with my hand, and holding a controller makes my hand go numb, so I've stuck with the PC.

    I'm looking forward to getting to know more people in the Titanfall community!

    Awesome to have you here Magik! I just recently joined the official TF2 forums and after getmused (who is also a member here) pointed me in your direction, you are one of the ones I've grown to respect the most over there pretty quickly. You have especially gone out of your way and done a heck of a lot of work and even offered your assistance to try to solve lag issues and I know there are some members here that will really appreciate that, especially getmused, Omega82 and unclefrank666.

    One of the OG's checking to say hi. Old but totally new to gaming except for TF which turned me into a junkie. Welcome aboard.
