Hello from ansellus

Postby ansellus » Mon 14 Apr 2003, 11:15 am

Originally posted on AnD's yahoo website. So you don't have to read it twice, unless you're really sad!!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm Matthew Ansell, I'm 31, been married for nearly two years (been
with my wife for 10 years though) and have a 9 month old daughter. I
live in NE Essex.

Been playing 'computer' games since about 1974/5. I mean the really
basic pong style stuff to start with. Then the unexpanded vic 20 (it
could draw a circle!), the texas ti994a, com64, amiga, sega master
system, first pc in 1997, ps1, dreamcast and then ps2.

I'm into rpg's, that's on 'computer' and I collect rpg books. Can't
wait for a mmorpg on the ps2 - come on sony get your arse in gear! Oh
that's right we're still in beta...

I love gta3, vc, medal of honour and just about any serious military
strategy game (remember stonkers of the speccy anyone?). Loved
playing pso on the dreamcast, until little darlings came online with
codez and stole all my decent hard fought-for gear. I was as mad as
hell...

Online I always try to use the name 'ansellus'. Although my character
on PSO was called Kari Ryu for some reason (and was lvl 92 before I
stopped playing).

I don't work in IT I'm afraid. I'm committed to a life of purgatory.
That's right I'm a qualified social worker! Before I get the "You're
not taking my kids away!" jibes, I don't work wth children. I work
with the over 65's. So I've got plenty of practice in before speaking
to you lot!

My router hasn't arrived yet (grrr...) but my ps2 pack has. If I need
any help with setting up the router would someone help me? I know
absolutely nada about networking anything.

Oh, just thought I let you know that I'm currently off work as I've
got gastroenteritis. Not nice. My GP's signed me off until Weds. so
I'm hoping my router will come by then, so I can set it up between
visits to the rest room!!! ;-)

Speak to you all soon!

Regards,

Matthew (Ansellus)

Good to have you on the board. Bad luck with your stomach type problems. Still, my NA just arrived this afternoon so maybe your router wil too.. If you want help with networking, there is a section set up for that so post there... I'm sure someone can help (we have a 100% success rate so far)

Thanks. I'm getting better. Had to give a 'sample' today. Bloody indignified :oops: - the instructions said that I should put cling film over the toilet bowl! Isn't that something that's just done on April 1st?! :wink:

My router still hasn't come... I'm sure I will need help with it when it does arrive

I'm not sure I'd like to be stalked. There must be much more interesting people to stalk than me! :lol:

I live near Colchester. You?

I said that I live near Colchester. To be precise I live in Clacton-on-sea. Hence no NTL. I'm using BT home 500 thingy...

I have to be careful about giving out personal information. After all... you did say you're a stalker :lol:
