About Me

Started playing this game in early beta and kept playing it through closed beta into open beta. I previously started the TAW division of MechWarrior online and grew it into a successful division before a lot of messy internal politics developed.

In South Africa, I was brought up to be honest and truthful and to speak to people treating them with dignity and respect. Sadly I have learned that not everyone subscribes to these values and to take some quotes from my second language I would use the words "kruipgat or tweegat jakkels" to describe certain people in TAW, that said there are some really decent people there, and I don't want to tar the whole with the attitude of a few,

After all the internal politics, I resigned from TAW only to be told weeks later that I had been "removed" "dismissed", I guess this happens when people are upset with you for leaving them, but it does seem rather petty.

Hang on while I put my "care hat" on, there we go:p

Leaving TAW was a great decision in my life and in a peculiar way extended my life by several months, with all the responsibility on my shoulders of running the division and the constant pressure to expand and regulate the division with "structures" imposed on me, it had begun to have a pretty negative impact on my already weakened health.

For months I had been feeling sick, but it took them several months to diagnose it, well done to the NHS doctor who picked it up in my blood tests, it was a relief in a way to actually be told what it was instead of living with it and thinking I was just lazy or feeling sorry for myself.

I have terminal liver disease, so I have been taking a break from " intense gaming" (play a few browser games), but for the most part, have a greater battle happening in real life that is taking up most of my time and energy. All I can say is, I won't give up without a fight and I have already beaten the first prognosis of 3 months, such that I could last for another 5 or 10 years even, or so says my specialist, who is supposed to say that to make me feel better :)

If I sound like I am feeling sorry for myself, I am not, I am strong in my faith, I have a personal relationship with God, that is everything to me. A lot of shit has happened in my life, a lot of shit while I was growing up and a lot of shit while serving my country, despite this and through this, there has always been one constant and that has been my faith.

To some people what I am saying will have no meaning to you, to others like me, who are blessed with that relationship, it is the greatest gift that I could ever have been given, especially in my present circumstances.

So if you wondering where I am or what became of me, now you know, enjoy the game :)
