    A while back I played a mulitplayer game called Xwing vs Tie Fighter and officially 'retired'. Then a few years later I started playing again anonymously and found Prelude to be something of a joke since I was one of the better players when I quit. A prelude to my return if you will.

    Being the not so creative person I am I decided to use the same name for several forums and chat rooms. Very interesting I know, but that's the truth as far as you know.

    -Prelude
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    I used to like the Camelot stories...the father of King Arthur being Uther Pendragon. Ruthless though his reputation was...

    Also, one of my favourite bands is called Pendragon. It has become my username for several forums this one included surprisingly enough.

    -Pen

    There's also a software company called Pendragon but it wasn't a contributing factor seeing as I'd never heard of it at the time.

    What will people say if they hear that I'm a Jesus freak?
    What will people do if they find that it's true?
    I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak, there is no disguising the truth!

    From playing Mechwarrior 2 online, NovaCat was the mech I used.

    Novacaine is the drug that started painless dentistry, and that was what I was studing at the time.

    I like guns. HK makes some of the best ones out there, the MP5 family of SMGs are widely used all over the world. I own a HK USP pistol.
