So I'm back, well not yet but soon...

I know a lot of people don't know me, but at least I see a few familiar names here so that's good.

After a long hiatus from the site, I'm back, well, I'll be back when SC2 hits the shelves, for now I'll just show up once in a while and maybe harass a few people ;).
And to answer the question quickly, yes I do have SC:BW and D2:LoD installed in my laptop, just that apparently I don't have the proper CD-Keys with me so I can only play single players. Also, I froze my WoW account about 2 years ago, so don't expect me to pop in there anytime soon.

So what have I been up to since I left, back in 2006 I believe?

Well, I played WoW and BC for a while, till time got the best to me and I left. I was raiding pretty hardcore getting deep into T6 content (before Sunwell patch) and I noticed that I had to put more and more time into my studies, Track & Field and women really do take up a lot of time, so I decided to quit WoW and live a game-free life. So what does all of this have to do with me returning? DAMN IT'S SC2 FOR GOD'S SAKE! Even if I was 90 years old I'd return and play. I've got my money set aside to go and get me a copy on July 27th so expect to play online with me as soon as I finish the campaign.

What else have I been up to? Well, studying, a lot. Electrical Engineering is pretty hard, especially at my university which has a 5-year bachelor with a whole bunch of classes which would be master's level on most other universities. I'll be entering my 5th year in August, so I'm done with most of my classes, only got about 36 credits left which means I graduate in 3 semesters if I take it easy. I figured since the classes I've got left are design classes which are just projects and no tests, I could play SC2.

Also I'm still running Track & Field, this year was pretty bad with a few distractions and injuries but other than that it's been great. Women have been a nuisance, that's all I can say. I don't know if it was bad luck, it was me or it was them, but they take way too much time that I just don't have. I also got myself a nice car and apartment, so I've been doing great on that part, I still can't cook for the most part but I've been slowly learning. I'll be getting a summer job at a local power plant soon so that's some nice work experience to fill my resume with.

Oh, I almost forgot, I'm pretty good at programming in Assembly on Intel x86 chips. I made a few interesting programs like a pong game which has 3 balls and the computer uses an AI system we designed and program to play by itself. We also made a piano simulator in which you can play, record and replay whatever you played on the piano, we got a friend who knows how to properly play a piano and he played some pretty cool stuff there. I know C++, but I hate it and don't understand it to it's full extent since I haven't used it since my 2nd year and I use MATLAB a lot, but I don't see much use of it here.

Anyways, how are you guys? What's changed around here and what are your plans for SC2?



None.

Just here for the pie

You'll probably be disappointed by the lack of large-scale activity on the new SEN. Other than that, welcome back.

Welcome back. I'm glad you're here. If you still have MSN, we should catch up.

Que Sera, Sera.

I remember you for sure, an old school senner. Welcome back, your life sounds pretty interesting actually.

Relatively ancient and inactive

... Beer Keg is back? Maybe The Return will save SEN yet!

We're currently engaged in an overly-dramaticized struggle to the death with SC2Mapster over who will reign over SCII mapmaking. They're raping us, though IP's back and we're doing some nice things.

Welcome back! Not much interesting is going on if you look at things on a global scale.

Don't stop till you get enough

Good to see an old face back, though I doubt you remember me, as I don't think we ever interacted. As others have said, things are bit slow around here lately. Maybe you could change that.

Hey Beer_Keg, it's Urmom/SaniK. Not sure if you remember me. Anyways, fellow Electrical Engineer here, although I'll only be entering my second year. Any tips? :P

At first, when I saw the thread on the forum index, I was like: Jeez, another idiot who has made a 'o hai I r back' topic.
But then I was like: Holy shit, it's BeeR_KeG!

I don't really use it much, I just use the Facebook chat, but I still have the same e-mail so I can download MSN.

What matters is that we have fun while making and playing the maps. I remember when SEN was kinda small (I started right at the first boom of users at around 2004) and it just grew and grew due to the quality of maps and especially the help you got from some of the best people in the community. Just by having Bolt_Head, for example, helping a bunch of people brought a whole lot of content and great people to the side.

Right now I'm running 400 & 800 mts plus the 4x400. I really like these events, even though they are considered the hardest, especially since they are 45 minutes apart from each other. I only ran all 3 races on the same day and I felt dead tired for like 2 days and I'm considered someone who can recuperate pretty fast after races. I really love the 200mts, but since I don't really train for that I don't compete in it. I ran 21.88 back in February but that only put be #3 at my University, we have some exceptional 100 & 200 guys.

It's hard to leave something in which you spent so many good times for good. I've felt a few urges over time to come back, but with SC2 coming up I feel it's a great time.

HAHA! I remember him, funny guy to play with. I remember when we used to play melee and back stab people and make posts on a small site I ran.

I remember you quite well actually, especially during the end.

Study. Study. Study. That's all I can say. Since you'll be on your second year on August I doubt you have taken any EE classes, depends on how your curriculum is set up, but once you get to the advanced classes it's great, a bunch of interesting stuff that makes you really think on how everything works. It's hard work, but it's definitively worth it. I especially like the area under Power Systems & Distribution which is where I'll be specializing under.

Actually, I'm impressed that I at least remember the names here. I know I didn't spend a lot time some of you, but I for sure remember the names, which is a good start.

OMG OMG OMG OMG BEER! Look at me! Look at me! I missed you!! *hug*

*now actually reads the post*

I'm glad you're still doing track and field. :) That's the activity I associated with you, no joke. Like, I'd be thinking "hmm I wonder how BeeR's been doing lately, he used to do track. I wonder if he still does." Well except I think of your real name, not BeeR.

Also, remember this?


Also, never see you on MSN. :( did you remove me?
