Well, obviously you are here to learn a little bit about me. I am flattered. I first made my debut on Masters of the Universe as Skeletor. I was a hit cartoon show and hey, I even wore my own cool underwear growing up.

I wasn't always known as Skeletor. Most people don't know this little tidbit but when I was about 12 I had started logging on the internet to chat using the oldschool dialup. Being out in the boonies and blazing on a 14.4 baud modem was cool stuff. So was playing doom with your buddy down the street this way. I've come a long way since then but back in the day I used to go by the chat handle Unique, why? Because I am just that.

Unique didn't last long. I soon picked something that reminded me of myself. That is when Skeletor1 was born. I've been a Masters of the Universe fan since I was a kid, I even had He-Man tighty whities! (Note: I haven't worn tighty whities since childhood) Plus, my frame was that of a skeleton so it was a perfect fit.

By the time I was 14 or so, Quake had launched. At this point we gamed on 56k modems. I was up at the store in the snow during the winter (I had biked there) so that I could get Quake the day it hit the stores. This was the only time I ever waited outside a store for a video game. I started a clan called Quake-o-Holics Anonymous. [QA]Skeletor. Most of my member base was from Sweden and we all gamed together and had a blast.

After Quake, it was other numerous games; Duke Nukem 3d, Warcraft II, Warcraft III, Starcraft, Shadow Warrior, Mech Warrior 2, etc. If it had online play, I was all over it. Kali was 20 bucks for a lifetime subscription. I know some of you remember Kali if you were into hardcore gaming back in the day. It's sorta like how gamespy is now with being able to find games and play with people.

Note: I still game, mostly MMORPGS nowadays. The Realm, Everquest, Dark Age of Camelot, World of Warcraft, and DDO. The list I'm sure will go on.

After my big huge gaming rush, I went into an internet chat phase on Internet Relay Chat. This was roughly around 1997-1998 when I started a channel on ircnet called #cool_teens. I still maintain contact with a few people who I met on that channel. *Waves to Squegie (John) and also Fredward (Ed) or as I knew him Rockin12 when he first came along. We were a pretty popular little channel and we lasted for about 3-4 years before I dipped out but I know some of the UK people kept it up and running for a while beyond that. I also hung out in #logcabin. Greets to `boo and Amnesiac if you ever find this page, It's been way to long dude, you should consider coming out of hiding. :P

I don't do much online chat now with IRC. I do the instant messenger thing, you can see the contact page for all my IM information and my e-mail address.
