    No, he means the Netherlands. Lands of the nether.

    Oost West, Thuis Best is the Dutch saying meaning the same as "Home Sweet Home". ;)

    So, smar, where are you in this sweet little country? And why? ;)

    Hi everyone!

    I'm a 19-year old guy of both French and English descent. I will start studying in February 2004 for a Degree in Computing & Multimedia in Australia 8) because I decided to go straight after three years of accountancy studies.

    I play the piano and the electric guitar, I've written a few songs. I read a lot and am a big fan of Terry Pratchett. I listen to music all day long, be it country, urban, metal, trance, rock, classical, flamenco, blues, or anything else that catches my fancy.

    I've played through Fallout & Fallout 2 a few times, but have yet to complete Tactics because I think that, despite some good ideas, it's turned out to be a dreadfully dreary slog of a game.

    Since I enjoy Games Workshop table-top strategy games (I hope this is not forbidden advertising on this forum), and particularly Necromunda which bears a passing resemblance to the universe of Fallout, I have started to design a strategy game inspired by those universes. I hope my computing studies will allow me to complete this project of a lifetime. :D

    Hey bakedguy,

    *sigh* You just had to sign up with that name, didn't you? Hopefully you'll change your ways before you get banned from here :P

    Don't worry people, I know him from real life. Just haven't seen him for a couple of years, that's all. I thought perhaps we could share some laughter here, so just give this funny guy a chance, m'kay?

    Born, living in Indonesia. Educated & lived in the UK for 16 years.

    Amiga will always be my favourite platform.

    Win32 ASM is my fave language.

    I can honestly say that I have run over a spammer.

    bakedguy: I would guestimate that 70%-95% of all software ever made involved some weed smokers at some point in the development cycle.

    I think its an important step.

    It's a picture of Odin the god. Odin is god of magic and leader of the Norse pantheon and most importantly he is the father to THOR.

    As to why Gandalf looks like Odin Tolkien's work has heavily influenced by Norse mythology. Odin can be considered as sort of a base to Gandalf.

    Also Earth in Norse is called Midgard, which means middle earth or middle garden. Heaps of other stuff too.

    Yup Kilus is right, actually that picture was taken from Funcom's project called Midgard (I think it was called) which was canned/put on hold..

    Pfft, you guys are trying to make it sound like I know nothing about Norse mythology. Pfffssshhht. If you look, my ~exact~ words were "Looks like", that does not mean that he doesn't look like anyone else. Sheesh.
