    I belive I said I would prefer them in a can not like them in a can. Peaches feel like eating big juicy bugs.

    Yeah! Hope you had a great day for your b-day, Flam! :D

    Anyways, wow... I had an amazing time! :D There were so many moments that keep on buzzing through my head, hehe. :D

    I loved that "Octogon" thing a ton, and especially the 2nd game when me and Yoda22 sprinted in there at the very beginning and then I got to the other side of the octogon before Blue could get in, so I shot 3 of them as they were still advancing to enter it (from their side). :D Then, after that, how there was like one blue guy left, and said "I'm gonna get that guy" and then this other person (I forgot his name :( ) came out the octogon door with me (on blue's side) and laid down a blistering cover fire as I told him to as I flanked the one blue guy and then took him out with only a single shot. :D Ah yes, I loved doing that. :D

    And then, on "Attack and Defend" scenario, when I took out those 4 guys on the top of blue's ridge as I lay hidden in the brush. (And everyone started chanting "Sithy Sithy Sithy, LMAO [face_laugh] ). Ah... I liked that scenario. :D



    I had SUCH a great time! You all rock, as usual! :D

    What were your all's favorite moments?


    P.S. Mark, thanks again for the ride! :)

    P.P.S. And "Player of the Day"? I'm honored. [face_blush]

    Let's see.......favorite points of the game...

    Getting shot by teammates.
    Getting shot again after yelling,"Same team".
    Getting shot in mouth and upper teeth by above-mentioned teammate.
    Surrendering like coward while holding bunker in "Trenches".

    Just kidding. I had a blast!! Best is when, in "Speedball", Rex rounded the corner and we both annihalted each other with like 6 shots.

    Hazmatt's advise on the baggy clothes really worked like a charm. I felt invincible, almost immortal taking shot after shot to the baggy jeans & not one broke! Altho I have found out that paintballs that hit & don't break leave the same bruises that the breakers do. My legs are polka-dotted today. [face_laugh]


    Addendum: I have one bruise on my back that I call Sithy. Man, you're stalking skills are deadly! lol

    Alright, just as a heads-up to everyone, I just finished editing the Paintball documentary I made there! :D

    Whew, I spent somewhere around 14 hours editing it, but I think it really looks great! :) I'm gonna have my friend burn it on DVD for me sometime this week or something, and I'll bring it to the book club on Saturday! :D

    So, if someone who has a nice laptop wants to bring it (I know Scott has a nice Powerbook, and of course Peaches has that uber-nice Alienware laptop) to the book club, I can show you guys the video. :D

    Anyways, I think the video's awesome, and I can't wait to show you guys. :D


    P.S. I can't wait to discuss Shatterpoint! :D

    We need to arrange a file transfer so I can get that video up on the website. How big is it, exactly?

    OK, people, the pictures are up! Head over to Chicago Force Web to check them out.

    As soon as I get the video from Sithman, that will be available as well.

    Yeah, um, the video is completely done. I finished it like 3 days ago.


    I just have absolutely no idea how to encode things. I am very, very clueless about it.

    I'm trying my hardest to figure it out so I can encode/compress it for the web. :( I wanna show it to people too. :(

    Check that. Some guy showed me how to do it tonight.

    I've got it compressed for you, Matt. :) It's 45MB and 4 minutes long at 320x240 pixels (about normal size for online stuff).


    Anyways, I'll shoot you an e-mail tomorrow and we can figure out how to get it uploaded hopefully soon, alrighty? :)

    Thanks a ton, Matt, BTW. :) (you're in the credits ;) ).



    P.S. I'd love it if everyone downloaded it and let me know what they thought of it! :D Thanks a ton, I'd appreciate it very much. :D
