    Yeah, I knew him. He was a tax collector in Austin, Texas. Now he works as an evolutionary geneticist biologist in London.

    [​IMG] is this true? :hmm: doesn't sound particularly plausible to me! tax collecting to biology? who would've thunk it!

    this is not just resurrecting an old topic, i seriously want to know who this guy is (going to need some 'old timer's' help on this one) and why everyone thought The Fat Egg was such a loser :mommy: that they didn't bother to reply to the majority of his posts.

    Actually, we replied to a lot of his posts when he was still around. He did a lot of posting, some of it pretty pointless, but ok in general. But he's been gone for some time now.

    [​IMG] As Tal said, he posted a LOT, much of it pointless. I remember the first weekend he was on SP he posted around 250 messages. I remember thinking "does this guy have a life?" In time I learned the answer was no.

    In all not a bad guy overall but a little odd, and sometime really a pain.

    [​IMG] I miss him ... he was funny.

    I miss SLAPPY even more though!

    And this thread makes me wonder what you all will be saying about me when I *finally* get a life ;)

    [​IMG] stop :mad: claiming you know everybody CL. :rolleyes:

    probably going to regret this... *who* is murray? :evil:
     
  10. He is the best char. in the Monkey Island series. He is a skull that talks and claims to be incredibly evil, but is mocked by the fact that he's only a skull.

    Before SP I was a MI buff on some different boards...

    The Fat Egg kind'a reminds me of me awile back and now. Scary. I get on the boards once a day just because I have nothing else to do. But I guess thats ok. I've got to cut down on my time here.

    Damn this cursed avatar summoning spell. There I was surrounded by lovely and 'accomadating' young 'ladies' on a warm tropical island and some blasted Sorcerer has to mention my Morte Avatar. So flash of magic and here I am.

    Actually I blame Zorac who emailed me with the link. I'm playing an online D&D game with him and some others from Sorcerers so I still post on the Roleplay corner forum.

    As to not posting here, there are a few factors. One the boards never seem to be running ;) , secondly there's only so many posts you can make about BG2 (unless your name is Ragusa or Extremist) and finally, I've just been far too miserable for the last 4 months and hate to spread doom and gloom around via the forums.

    I've also been playing a lot of Operation Flashpoint and have had my first misison hosted :)
    http://www.ofpeditingcenter.com/Command_HQ/mission_detail.asp?id=131

    Still, I'm also slowly working my way through a complete BG (plus all the add-ons) and keeping a journal so will maybe send that to Tal. The nowhere near up-to-date journal is here:
    http://www.maturegamer.net/DownloadExtras/SlappJournal/Slapburd.html

    Ah yes there was also the big distraction of trying to launch my own site, but that died from lack of interest :(

    PS for those who were asking who I am, my official (well not really official) Sorcerers title 'the linkmaster' can you guess why.
     
  17. Slappy, I haven't seen you in aeons. Why, I was just a fledgling watcher when I last saw you!

    I like the fat egg ... I use the present tense now because i still stay in contact with him ...

    Back when he was 'active' on the boards, he was looked up to pretty much ...

    Yeah we're pretty good net pals ...
