    My name is Shane, I'm 40, married with 2 daughters, 11, and 4, live in Alexandria, Louisiana, and work as the Network Admin in a manufacturing plant.  I started writing my own games on a TI 99/4a computer when I was 15. I met a guy in the Air Force that showed me Car Wars and AutoDuel, and I was hooked.
    I like sci-fi movies like Terminator, 2, 3, & 4, Matrix, 2, & 3, StarShip Troopers, 2, & 3, RoboCop, 2, & 3, and Resident Evil, 2, 3, & 4, Mad Max, 2, &3, and looking forward to watching The Book of Eli.
    I have enjoyed playing StarCraft, & 2, Diablo, 2, & 3, X-Com, 2, & 3, Carmageddon, 2, & 3, Interstate 76 & 82, EQ, WoW, BattleField 1942, Vietnam, 2, 2142, & Bad Company 2.
    When I found DarkWind, I loved the tactical turn based vehicular combat.  I find the environment limiting; I was hoping for a lil more sci-fi, but if Sam combined DarkWind with Syndicate Wars, I'd be divorced and unemployed, and playing 24/7.
    I also used to drive a red '79 Triumph TR7 (Flash) convertible with a 3.5L Rover v8.  Man that thing was fast.  Nowadays, I drive a black '04 Ford F150 supercrew. (BPU)
    I'm also a big fan of Steven Sagal, even though he is now a police officer around New Orleans, LA.

Syndicate Wars!  Yes!  OMG I had forgotten about that game.  That was such an awesome game.  You and I would be sitting in the same homeless shelter for divorced men, hogging their PCs, in that scenario.

Nice!  OK, My cars.  My old rustbucket is a '98 Honda Civic (Sonic).  My wife drives a BMW sedan, which I guess is similar to a Mercenary.  We also have a Porsche Cayenne in the garage, which doesn't have an in-game analogue yet, but I'm pushing for one.  I rarely take it out, though, because the gas mileage is so poor. 

OK, since Rev is posting "lookee here" pictures, I'll throw one of mine up:

I'm Andy. I'm a 22-year-old GIS technician outside of Los Angeles.
I've been working for a consultant out here for close to 5 years, helping cities turn paper maps in GIS data, though I'm looking for better-paying work (hint, hint.)
I've never played Car Wars, though I loved Streets of Sim City as a kid, and I've fallen deeply in love with Darkwind. Thanks, Sam!

Alright - here it goes. My name is Kevin, I am 31 (almost 32) and I live in Alaska (heya deathy). I am married and have 2 boys (3 and 5) and a little girl in the oven (due April 13). I just got re-employed as a carpenter, and damn it is fun framing out in the cold. I was always into games from childhood on, but also stuck to sports. Had a scholarship to USC in high school, but lost it when I tore my patellar tendon (ugh). So needing to pay my own way at college, I ended up just going to a community college in Ca for 2 years. Took a break to "analyze my options", and never made it back.

My gang name Renshai comes from a book series I liked, wherein a tribe of warriors called the Renshai trained at swordswork from the time they could carry a sword. They dismissed archery and shields as "cowards weapons". They would fight with their sword and that was it - to others' peril. Based on their belief, a warrior was banned from Valhalla if there was a part of the body missing. So the common tactic of the Renshai was to cut off whatever they could to demoralize their enemies corpses. Hated by all other tribes they were hunted like dogs and even saying the work Renshai would get you jailed. I am not as hated as my namesake _yet_ but I like the way the name sounds and hope someday to become as evil and widely hated as they.

I have limited time to play, with my family, work, and all. So I like to believe that by superior skill I can make up for my lack of time.

I'm going to keep this short, as I do all of my posts.

I'm nineteen years old, and live near Atlanta, Georgia, United States. I was born and raised Southern and don't plan on leaving any time soon.

I'm currently attending University full-time, majoring in Mathematics until I transfer to a tech school. I plan to get a degree in electrical engineering.

I picked up tabletop games with friends a year or two ago, mostly D&D 3.5 and World of Darkness. I considered doing a campaign on the forums, but didn't know whether anyone would be interested. I started Darkwind a long, long time ago, but did not subscribe and my interest faded in and out once I amassed enough money to pay my characters in my absence.

In real life, I drive a black 1997 BMW E37, 740iL. My old car was a 1992 Lexus LS, but it was rear-ended last fall. It had the premium Nakamichi audiophile sound system.

Much of my time outside of school is spent pushing the limits on my audio setup in my desktop, which I built from scratch.

My handle, Checkers, is a reference to Richard Nixon's 1952 Checkers speech. Axis of Weevils is a gang name Skidmark mentioned he wanted when I mentioned in passing that I was sick of my old gang name. He graciously let me have it.

Hey all, my name is Joe and I live in the frozen wastes of Minnesota, USA. I'm 41, married with one daughter, and manage a gun shop and shooting range.

In my spare time I enjoy hunting, fishing, listening to loud music of all kinds, playing military sims, chess, and now DW. I'm also a new student of Silat martial arts and I've been dabbling in writing articles on historical military small arms.

I played Car Wars, LaserBurn and BattleTech as a kid. Nice to play something similar without the slow turns, dice rolls, and rule arguments.

MadDoggy is an old nickname of mine, something I got labeled with after a night of youthful indiscretion and a bottle of Mogen David 20/20. Don't ask me about it because I really don't remember.

Hi. My name's Omar I'm 25, single, in Aviator (Rotary Wing) training at Ft. Rucker, AL. Originally from Michigan.

My education is all Aviation. Former ATC. Joined Army, worked as ATC for several years until I got accepted into the WOC school here. Graduated WOC last September so I'm a Warrant now. Started Apache training in February.

I live with Gary and Elli  just outside the base. I'm their most recent adoptee. They are really dedicated to helping Soldiers.

Never played Car Wars. Gary showed me the game one day thought it might be fun. Bought Gary's 'old' computer and took over his account.

My first go-round I lost 3 Buzzers, a Trash Truck and 4 Apaches because I got confused on escaping. One of them was famous.

I'm getting the hang of the game. Lots of little rules I'm learning. I'm hooked on the big scout. Still can't make money but I think that takes more time than I have.

don't know what will happen when I finish training probably get deployed to somwhere in the sand. Not too thrilled about that but it is what it is. Because I'm military I can't say what's on my mind. It's in my contract!

Anyways having fun (even with loss of Buzzers). Since we're talking about cars, here's mine:

Yeah I'd suggest changing gang name and user name if you can.

Also, as a general internet tip, it may not be best to post your generous host's first & last names along with their town of residence... stalkers and privacy and the like and all that.

Thanks everyone. The developer has approached me about changing name/gang name. Good idea but now I ahve to make my imagination work. ble.

Dodger, gl with the stalking thing. Mr. C's place butts up against a VERY secure military installation, behind a berm 600 yards off the only access highway witha clear field of fire. :D

But I getcha. Thanks. And we have Jamie to help.

Oh hey I remember Jamie. Gary actually sent me a picture of her, though I can't recall her exact identity, nor why he sent me that ;)

You're Gary and Elli's adoptee? Does that make them your foster parents?

Me and about 1000 other Soldiers. Every holiday they have a full house of single soldiers not going home. Elli's job puts her in contact with EVERY soldier that comes on base. She's the ultimate Mother Hen.

:D

And ya I'm their 'kid' at least until graduation but probably beyond that.

Jamie's a godess. That's a perk. She's always here. And ya that's a REAL AK- and it's hers!
