    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

    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
