I'll say hello here. Been lurking the forums a bit the past couple years but just joined with the last sale.
Been gaming since the days of Pong machines on our behemoth B&W television, graduating to the Atari 2600, a friend's Apple 2 and Vic 20, an Atari ST, and, well, just about every console and computer type ever released.
Gaming waxes and wanes as my primary hobby, swapping places with comics and films every year or three. My favorite game series is Heroes of Might and Magic, with several thousand hours of that in my history.
Currently, I'm more of a hoarder collector when it's comes to all of my hobbies, as being with my wife and daughter take more time and energy than I realized when I joined the adult crowd and got married a couple years ago.
Outside of hobbies I work as a medevac dispatcher and tried for years to deny there was a personal God but failed. I've been a forum user since the days of BBSs, used to have one of my own, and already feel that this may be just the second online community that I could call 'home'.
