@ShaneDev: Enjoy it, its a good town, and surprisingly well equipped college, everyone had G5/G4 macs and 2 monitors when I was there. Did my first 3 years in Athlone where they had few ancient apples. Always upgraded the year bellow as I moved up!

Nationality wise I am. Ethnically, no I'm not. But anyway, yeah I live in Dublin and I go to UCD. Awful place... 
Just for the record there's a lot of us here. In terms of active users though they're aren't many. In fact, as far as I know. I'm the most active user on the forums. I do a little on the wiki though. I think skidd is there most of the time.
#28 Edited by avantegardener (1166 posts) -

 Excellent, going to try my hand at a little wiki editing myself soon, I've about 24 years gaming under my belt, so surely I could drop a knowledge bomb on some of the under powered entry's. I've never been much of a forum contributor (anywhere), but this quest system makes it more appealing for the collect-em-up enthusiast.

I am a filthy Belfast bastard.

#30 Posted by avantegardener (1166 posts) -

#33 Posted by skidd (461 posts) -
@eroticfishcake: From what I've seen your'e about right, I think your'e the only one that I'm aware of who's a regular on the forums. Haven't been too involved in the wiki side of things recently, I'm gonna get back on there as soon as college finishes...especially now with the wiki quests

Which is why you can find Irish people everywhere except in Ireland. EVERYWHERE.

I'm not Irish, but I'm a big fan of Dylan Moran and Rory Gallagher, if that counts... which it doesn't.
