    Now that I am finally getting neighborly and have introduced myself several times over the almost 8 years since I joined, could I have one of those new-fangled house-thing badges, please?

    @DogDragon is giving me his cell phone contacts. It didn't take any cherries to convince him. Any day now I'm going to Exist...

    I just reallized I have never offically introduced myself after all these years. HAHAHA

    Hello, I am Andy Miller a.k.a. UPS-Hitman. Yes I know there is a cus word in my name. (Thanks @Tiberiuslazarus for figuring out that one long time ago. :thumbsup: ) I am the older brother of UPSLynx and UPSFooman. I joined Icrontic about 5 years ago but I was hanging out on the TF2 servers with the IC folks for about a year prior to that. TF2 in fact is were I discovered this great community way back in the beginning. I actually introduced Lynx to Icrontic and then he turned out to be a IC Bigshot HAHAHA. You may wonder why we put UPS in front of our names. No we are not a family of UPS delivery drivers. It actually came about during the TFC (Team Fortress Classic) days where my brother Lynx and I created a so called Clan called the United Pimp Service ]UPS[ just for fun and it just kinda stuck after all these years. lol
    Anyway I have a wonderful wife and 2 beautiful daughters Maddie (4years old) and Ava (2 months). I work as the audio operator for the local FOX affilate, FOX 59 WXIN, here in Indianapolis for the 4,5, and 10PM newscast. I graduated from Ball State University in 2004. GO CARDS!!!
    Besides all that I am a huge PC gamer. My current fav games are Diablo 3, TF2, Minecraft, and Skyrim. I did go to this years Expo for the first time and absolutely loved it! I highly recommend to anyone that hasn't gone please do so. The people in this community ROCK!!

    Hi. I'm Raymond. I discovered Icrontic doing a search for how to install Folding@Home on a Linux box - didn't get too far using the instructions on the Folding site. @Tushon 's article got it going for me. I'm a recently laid-off Windows/Citrix administrator from the defunct Space Shuttle program, playing with computers instead of getting serious about finding a new job. I'm married, have a dog (used to have a search dog, now just a dog for walking), cook, read, paddle (kayak), don't game, text, twitter, Facebook, etc. Icrontic looks interesting. I'll enjoy working my way through a bunch of the threads.

    Hello! Welcome to Icrontic :)
  • Alright, here goes.

    Hi, I'm Michelle (cue simultaneous "Hi Michelle" response). I live in Orange, CA and am a divorced mom of 1 fairly-cute 8yo girl. I work in the Medicare & Retirement Sales divison for UnitedHealthcare and while I'm not in IT, my team relies on me for local and quick tech support when they know that calling the help desk would take too long. I'm not a huge gamer, but I've been known to pull all-nighters when I am this close to finishing a game. I think my only real "tech" qualification is that I'm not afraid to break things to try something new.

    I was introduced to Icrontic by @Ghoosdum, who introduced me to @primesuspect and @UPSLynx. I figured these guys were decent enough, I might as well check out where they "live."

    I haven't been to any IC events yet, though I plan on hiking to watch folks jump off a bridge later this month (if that's still happening); I'm not allowed to jump, but I'll watch and cheer the rest of y'all on.

    In my personal (non-work, non-mommy) time, I maintain a blog on my "faking sanity" skills, head to Disneyland whenever possible, karaoke with friends and grow babies that aren't mine.

    Thanks for having me!

    Welcome BlueTattoo and MomOfRose!

    The Hiking trip may still happen though I don;t think anyone is jumping off bridges at this point. Some other stuff came up on the date that that was planned and we have to cancel. All good though, I will start up a new thread to plan a hiking trip because it seems that part of the trip was what interested the majority.

    IC Cali Grows!

    Welcome BlueTattoo and MomOfRose! Pleased to make your digital acquaintance.

    Welcome to Icrontic, @MomOfRose and @BlueTattoo . You cannot find a better community that encompasses so many things anywhere on the net. :wave:
  • So I should probably introduce myself,

    I'm Mitch, Signal on Steam. I live in Des Moines, IA. I, like many of you, have a TF2 addiction. I cam across the TF2 server by hitting the 'Start Playing' button last fall. It was unlike any other TF2 server I'd been in. There was friendly banter, skilled players playing for fun, and most importantly, drunk admins. I was hooked.

    I was going through some tough times back then. My best friend was on the other side of the world in a carrier where communication was limited; I had just ended a 3 year relationship; and I was having trouble finding work after getting laid off, moving back in with the parents to change schooling to full time, then not being able to find work for 5 months after graduating. Being able to hop on the Icrontic TF2 server to destress with people like @primesuspect, @cola, Smokey, @oni_dels really helped keep my sanity. So thank you guys and all else on the TF2 server and make it an awesome place to keep coming back to.

    But enough sob story. Life if going great for me now. Best friend is out of the Navy after 6 long years and back home, got an awesome job (SAP Security Developer) with an awesome company, bought my first house (it was a shortsale, don't get me started on how horrible the banking industry is. Offer them their asking price for the house and it takes 5 months to close, ridiculous), and have started taking better care of myself (lost 8% bodyfat in the last 6 months, dropped almost 30 pounds). Life is good.

    Hobbies include cooking and baking (my pies are freaking awesome as well as my carnitas), gardening/landscaping, biking, weightlifting, bourbon, and TF2. While I wouldn't call myself a bronie, I am thoroughly entertained on nights when the pony stream is going.

    Been lurking here a while but last night the server was getting full and people were getting kicked so I figured I'd introduce myself and make it official.

    That enough for an introduction post?

    Welcome to Icrontic Signal! Great to see you make the leap to the Forum. Stick around and I think you will find conversation on almost every subject you mentioned already. We are kinda awesome like that.

    Every time I see you hop on the server I can not help but think of this:

    I'm Lauren, @MrTriot girlfriend/babies momma. He and I have a wonderful daughter, Allison, who is 6 months old. I really have no business being on here seeing as I don't game and the most advanced my computer skills ranges to is the lower level of the HTML spectrum. I rage quit my way through life. I spend my time watching Friendship Is Magic with my daughter, picking at MrTriots masculinity and guzzling unholy amounts of vanilla coffee.
