Bubbles is my favorite. She can draw the best pictures in the whole wide world, and talk to squirrels.



Why is she called "BUBBLES"? Is it because she never has a handkerchief? :)

How i got my nickname, well it really stands for and i quote : Metallica - Megadeth - Nine Inch Nails - Pantera - Static-X - Rammstein - silverchair - Offspring - Slipknot - Korn - Limp Bizkit.


Ah the offspring. I love them so much. They were my first favorite band after I came off the micheal jackson/mchammer phase. I listened to Ixnay on the Hombre, which is still the best goddamn offspring CD even if they don't have a popular single off it.

The Offspring is one of the only good "punk" bands left. All the other bands that claim to be "punk rock" sing some kind of horrible rock/teenpop/rap hybrid (Blink 182, SR71, Sum41, that kinda thing). Only good punk left that I can think of is Offspring, MxPx, Green day, and Weezer.

Well, everybody seems to be responding to this post. So here goes...

My name is Thijs. I'm from Holland. I'm 19 years old, but I feel like I'm 50. I look like a normal dude I guess, but I don't think I'm that normal at all. I saw somebody post something about self-mutilation here. Well, I do that too, sometimes.

Well, what else can I say.. I like videogames, i like soccer, i like beer and I hate women, except when I fuck 'em. Unfortunately, that doesn't happen too often.

Well, to be honest, I don't hate 'em... I hate some.
Blah, bla, bla... I drank too much... I post like an idiot.

Goodbye............... *cough*

I get paranoid about giving away any kind of personal info, after some of the horror stories my friends have the pleasure of relating to me. But what the hell, I always wanted to live in a refrigerator box.

My name is the Doom-Child. Plain and simple. I have a body, but he doesn't like me, and I'm not too terribly fond of him. He keeps me around though, so I don't torture him too badly. It's kind of a less violent "Fight Club" duality. His name is Lee, and as far as I can tell, he's a complete loser. But whatever. I wasn't "born" until August 29, 1997 (Judgement Day). Lee was born in 1980. God alone knows what he did without me for those seven years. Probably sat around and dribbled on himself.

Nowadays, we amuse ourselves by learning OpenGL and playing Deus Ex, Quake 3, and Legacy, all with a shiny new spoogarific GeForce3.

We live in Alabama, but go to school in Arkansas. It's not as bad as it sounds, though, because the school we attend is pretty cool. Anybody who gets bored enough to try and find me can look for AIM name DoomChild31 (31 is exactly seven tenths of 42, the Ultimate Answer of Life, the Universe, and Everything).

I only know of one person that can beat me in DOOM right now. I'm hoping I find more people better than me, though, because if I'm the best there is, then the DOOM community is in SAD shape.

Other than that, I can only say that "It feels good to be the best in your zip code."

Post Out Of Order


Posts: 673
Registered: 05-01


Because I had nothing better to do, I figured I might as well stick my "goodbye" post here, and use it to comment on what Kat says.


I saved the original "Getting to know you all" if anyone wants it. Here's my original post there:

Hmm. This really is a wonderful idea, even if I've never seen most of these people. Where to begin?

My name's Katarhyne Lynn Stone, and I'm soon-to-be 19 [update: I'm now 19]. I live in Nederland, Texas, a little shit-town just east of Beaumont, Texas, which is about an hour east of Houston.

A lot of people comment that I'm not a very normal person. That's okay, my entire life has been abnormal. I think I'll pull a Lut here and ramble on for awhile.

When I was born, I was a very strange-looking child, even for a newborn. I was bright red, blood-red, as my skin was literally transparent. Still is, actually. Also, I was born with a heart defect resulting from my unique condition, Turner's Syndrome. About 99% of babies born with Turner's Syndrome die within one week of birth.

Normally, girls are born with two X chromosomes, and boys are born with an X and a Y. I was unlucky enough to be born with only one X. I'm wholly female, obviously, but unfortunately (or fortunately, for some of you sickos out there), I'll never grow up - I'll never go through puberty. I'm stuck four feet tall and flatchested for the rest of my life. Add on top of that albinism, and...well, it's not hard to understand why I'm not normal.

That's why I prize the internet so much. Here, I can talk to people without being judged automatically. I hated school. Noone wanted to talk to me. Noone even wanted to be associated with me. So I withdrew - I discovered machines and never turned back.



Quick interrupt: Bullshit. The people on the internet (read: IRC) are more judgemental than anyone you'll meet in everyday life, because they know they can get away with it since you probably won't be able to track them down and give them the punch in the nose they deserve.

Remember, the rule of IRC is "survival of the biggest assholes", and, well, I've finally outgrown the slight amusement that IRC has given me.



I love machines. All types - especially cars, guns, and computers. It's a very male trait; odd, considering my rampant femininity, but nevertheless, I've never cared for people. I guess that's why I'm such a bitch sometimes on these forums and on the comment threads. Forgive me if I've hurt your feelings. I really am a nice person, if a bit cliquey.

I love to help people, too. Some of you have benefited from my assistance (like Herr Heinemann), and already know that, but don't hesitate to ask me a question, especially about anything hardware. I enjoy shop talk.

Getting back to my life - I hate my parents. And then, of course, I'll be hypocritical and say that I'm daddy's little girl. But honestly, my parents don't know how to love me. It's not their fault; I'm a freak, I understand that. But they've never made me feel loved. Nor my brother. Why?



On the other hand, everyone ELSE loves Kat. I once had the (stupidity/balls/ignorance/choose your own damn word) to propose to Kat. Uh. Oh well, there's still hope for me yet, maybe.



Because, well, to be blunt, we're rich. We're loaded. We're fabulously wealthy beyond your wildest dreams and damned if we can't fix a problem by throwing money at it, at least, according to my parents. And that includes familial obligations, like being affectionate with your children.

Family life in our home has always been awkward. None of us get along, save my brother and I, (and there's six of us in the house) because our relationships are just too awkward. My father sits around, works (he works perhaps 60 hours a week, since he works out of home, and doesn't care to see any of the rest of us, apparently), and drinks beer. Occasionally, when he gets really drunk, he decides that it's time to show his dear sweet daughters and sons how much he loves them and gets all maudlin, but...::sighs:: It's all fake. My mother keeps to herself as well, at home, usually either out in her garden, or reading, but she goes out a lot, too, alone, or even with other guys sometimes. My dad doesn't care - he never has. I think my mom has even put nude pictures on the 'net.

My older brother Michael and my older sister Chelsea (fraternal twins, just like my brother Zak and myself - another oddity of our family) tend to ignore me. I'm the archtypical 'bratty kid sister' in their eyes, and perhaps, sometimes, I am, but I still wish they'd either A) move out or B) be a little friendlier. You know, act like we're siblings, not roommates. I'm not very close with them at all, and that's not helped by the fact that they're 10 years older than I am.



BTW, my opinion of my two little sisters is that I wish they'd stop feeling like it's their duty to annoy the fuck out of me.



My twin brother Zak is about the only person in my non-internet life I really give half a damn about. He's my fraternal twin, and he's about the biggest potsmoker in Texas, but, he's still a sweetie. He's probably gonna start hanging around here and in #doom more often, now that he's kinda moving away from his druggie friends and more towards our mutual computer-geek friends.

Anyway, if you think I sound interesting, IM me or something (AIM: Kyutika) sometime. Or come find me on OPN. I'm shy in person, but online, I'm pretty brazen. ::smiles::

Maybe one of you can still my perpetual boredom for a few minutes.

From Texas with Love,
Katarhyne

...

You know, it occurred to me later that I hadn't really said anything about gaming and my likes and dislikes and such. Hmm. I like techno music, the harder the better (especially gabber/speedcore/terrortrance and such - http://www.mp3.com/hyperdriver is my favorite band), and I like metal and rapcore, too, but really, I like all music to varying degrees.

As far as gaming and related stuff, I enjoy all 3Dness, whether they be 3D action games (Quake3, UnrealTournament) or 3D world simulations (Half-Life, System Shock 2, Deus Ex, Black and White), or even 3D Winamp plug-ins. I love 3Dness.

I've always enjoyed the thought of virtual reality. I used to read usenet newsgroups through a BBS here locally, and I eagerly anticpated the release of Doom, even back in 1993. I was only, what, 11? Gah. I preordered it from iD software, and I remember vividly how excited I was when it came in. I grabbed the light brown packaging, tore it apart, removed the treasured and long-awaited version 1.1 commercial diskettes, and installed it on my computer. I tried to set it up for my Advanced Gravis Ultrasound, but...well, that wasn't working, so I had to default to my Sound Blaster 16. That computer was a 486DX2/66Mhz with 16MB of RAM. I loved that machine. That machine was the only reason I even made it through middle school - it and the 386/40Mhz before it. And, of course, Doom ran like a dream.

Doom scared the piss out of me. Literally. I'll never forget the first time I ever played E1M8 and...well, let's just say I had an accident.

And of course, before Doom (and even afterwards, for some of these), it was Wolfenstein, and Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold, and Captain Comic, and Zork, and Kroz, and ZZT, and Jazz Jackrabbit, Traffic Department 2192, Dark Ages, Tyrian, Linewars (and the sequel), Epic Pinball, Fire Fight (much later, actually), Laser Squad, the myriad AD&D games, both gold box and '3D' versions, Catacombs 3D (much earlier), and...ahh...Commander Keen, of course, and I can't ever forget One Must Fall: 2097. What about Infocon's great Battletech games, or Mechwarrior? Such nostalgia.

Anyone here ever play Princess Maker? The second one remains one of my favorite games of all time.

Anyway, enough of me pining for the golden age of DOS and shareware. As far as my involvement in the doom community goes, I've never done any maps, graphics, or anything, that's been released. I've done a ton of sound replacements and .deh patches, but none have seen distribution. I even re-did all the sounds in Immoral Conduct, since the ones they have suck. Bad. My uncle owns a gun shop. I know what guns sound like. Those aren't guns. (well, some of them aren't)

Oh, and disregard the picture of me here on doomworld. I keep telling lingweesa to take it down, and...gyeh.

Did I get it all this time?

/me it up.


And now for the rest of what I have to say.

First: Recidivus is a complete and utter asshole.

Second: #doom is a forum for squashing independent thought. Just TRY to talk to one of the ops on a subject where your opinion differs and watch your ass go flying repeatedly.

Third: Everyone has the right to feel their life has been a complete waste - if you haven't actually done anything important, then you're correct in feeling that way. I know this because... well, because I haven't done anything important.

Fourth: I'm having my name legally changed to Kowoika Dzeshamista. Why? Because I feel like it.

Fifth: Don't expect to see me again around here.

Sixth: The hell with all of you (excluding Kat).

Seventh: Uh... there is no seventh thing.

Good luck to all of you hosers, morons, freaks, wang dispensers, and assholes.

My name is Nathan William Crawford, I live in this little hamlet in Ontario, Canada. I'm 18, I'll be 19 in 56 days (woohoo, less than two months until I'm at legal drinking age!), I was born September 26th, '82 in Barrie, Ont. I lived all over the place in this here province, and travelled almost all over it, too.

My fave games are the Doom, Blood, and Turok series, and I love RPG's as well as "diamonds in the ruff"-type games, i.e. the lesser-known games that really kick ass, like CyberMage. And in my highest opinion, Final Fantasy was good up until 6. Seven has a great story, but that's it. It's fighting and magic systems are a bitch (simplistic and pretty, but not very liberal), and it's equip/character system is very similar to Breath of Fire's, where certain classes are limited not to certain weapons, but certain weapon types. e.g., one weapon type per character. At least armour isn't like that.

My fave movies are Bladerunner, Heat, and The Jackal.

My fave music groups are ZZ Top, Judas Priest, Pantera, Dream Theatre, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, and Alice Cooper.

My fave book(s) are the Song of Fire and Ice series by George R. Martin. Nothing like Dark Fantasy mixed in with enough politics and political scheming to make Tom Clancy's political villains look civil.

My job is selling books at a kiosk, easy job, boring as hell. But at least there's the odd good book to pass the time, and if there isn't one, I can always read my own.

Religion: Don't have one, have no love for organised religion, either.

Pet peeves: religious fundamentalism, politics OF the media, modern pop music, people who disrespect music groups they've never heard or heard of because they want to look cool...Ignorance is bliss for only so long...then it's not.

hobbies: cycling. I do 7 1/2 hours a week, and I have a 200 km trip planned (125 miles) at the end of august. And anyone who's read that health article about mountain biking, keep your smart-ass questions to yourselves, because it's a crock of shit.

Doom add-ons: I have two. Ripped graphics and putzing around with EDGE. lockdoom.zip and locked.zip. The distinct differences between the two is that one has new enemies and the other doesn't, and the one without new enemies is a tad more refined.

ok, so I'm a little late at posting, but here goes

Names John. John William Lehman. I live in Houston, TX, I just turned 15 (July 17, 1986).

I'm somewhere around 6', about 130 lbs (NEED MORE FAT!)

Have 1 brother, turns 19 this year.

I started playing Doom a while back (About during my 3rd grade year). I played the shareware version, on a black and white laptop, complete with PC Speaker sound effects. I also had the full version of WOLF3D, but anyways....Eventually (about 5th grade) I got a new computer desktop and I bought Doom 2 and Warcraft 2. I was blown away (I had only experianced color and sound for Doom with SNES). After that, I bought Final Doom (dunno when)....BLAH BLAH, a lot of stuff happens and then I'm in 7th Grade.

At this time, I get a Gateway laptop (a complete piece of shit) and I reinstall Doom 2. Later, I find Doomworld.com, and get ZDOOM and a bunch of mods. The more crap happens.

Eventually, by October 2, 2000, I had played online deathmatch for quite some time (My alias being Rubilacxe). I decided on that day that I would register (MUY SPEEELING EES BAHD) to Doomworld.

And now you know, the rest of the story... :)

but if you don't, about 3 months back, I released somthing called Cube to the public. Some liked it, I think because of the ability to create monsters. Some hated it, because I stole pretty much everything to make it. I still have a copy of the bastard, if you still want it.

I ran away like a little girl, cuz people kept pissing me off (saying stuff about 'how I shouldn't steal this and that'. Not that I don't agree with them, it's just....Ah, I dunno. Don't care about Cube anymore, LOL.

So, then on August 8th, I came back. Because, like most people have been saying, NO BODY LEAVES THIS FORUM!
