O wow, thanks for letting us know. I guess it has been a while since this game started. Hope he goes to the good place.

Sorry to hear it. :(
I voted for an RHR Dental Plan, but Tyger would have none of that.

I've knew John aka Himmy, aka [NWC]Himler, aka Jersey{MOO} since the late 90's, when we both played the Quake II Chaos mod, along with Grinder. We didn't always see eye to eye, but in the end it doesn't matter all that much.
Rest in peace, Jersey.
You're perfect. Yes, it's true. But without me, you're only you!
