I am playing tetris - does that mean I'll go around building blocks? Big grin Big grin

Yes. ask the pilot on the last plane I was on. He played a little too much combat flight sim. There goes lunch out the window. (Literely)

When Quake came out in 1996 my marks went down the toilet! Skipping school all day with friends over at my house...playing over the net on my ultra high-end P133 with 28.8 modem.
