This is Steven, formerly )SoC(Grunty or some such stuff that I have forgotten. I was browsing through my wayy old computer and found this was my homepage so I thought I'd drop by and see you all. My current gaming computer has crashed so I'm using my dads, though it's pretty much limited to CS 1.6. Still saving up for a new computer.


Just curious, can my dad's computer run Halo PC, I've the thought it's too bogged down by all the anti-spyware stuff he has.

Grunty! I remember seeing you around before!

However, I don't think we ever really talked. I don't know much about whether you could run it or not, but it's good to see you!

Talk to a GE to get your old account back, then hop on TS and join us! :)

Halo won't have any problems running on that setup.

I remember you.
But the question is, do you remember me?
I'm pretty sure I didn't have my tags back when I remember you on here.

I vaguely recall some of you, and some things I'd rather not remember. (Like swearing and cursing a lot of you, ect...) But time has passed, and there's not but a thing I can do about it.

The dirt has really hit the revolving metal blades over the past couple of weeks... I got rear-ended and my car is trashed. Still drive-able, but with a bent frame, and is utterly worthless. I hate dealing with the insurance companies. They're only going to give me about 50% of what I still owe on the car too, which is lame. My parents said I could file a personal injury claim and just maybe break even or come out a little bit on top. I'd feel like a jerk, but after multiple visits to the chiro my head and neck still hurt. That also contributed to what happened about a week later.

I got let go from my job. My ill mood and performance as a result of the crash (when you've got a massive headache and can barely hold your head up because your neck hurts you tend not to be very happy about pushing carts) cost me my job. They said they'd give me a good reference for the year or so I was a good employee, but I was still peeved. Even though it's just Walmart

(Will put up pictures of the car accident later)

In an upside turn of events I have an interview with a gas station just 5 minutes from my house (Walmart was a 30 minute drive, when traveling at speed). I'd much prefer working at a small gas station in a sleepy town rather than Walmart in the middle of a City. Hope everything goes well!! So I can go back to school while biding my time to re-up for the Army

The car I bought for 5 grand. A 2000 Saab 9-3 with only 75k miles on the clock, 5 speed tranny, and a sweet 4 pot turbocharged engine good for 185 bhp



Rear Ended at approximately 30 miles per hour (no joke, their airbags deployed and I did the maths) by a Chevy Cavalier driven my a young lady from Chicago. My month and car ruined by a chance incident with a car 150 miles from its home.

The Cavalier was utterly ruined, and unbeknown to me at the time, so was my car.

Directly after "The Incident" (as I have titled the collection of files in my drawer) 10 points if you get the Porcupine Tree reference

So it is trashed, sort of. The insurance company will write it off, making the car utterly worthless. But I have a plan for it... Keep my car, and shell whatever the insurance company gives me (still in the middle of this whole process), drive the car to its grave, then strip everything I want from it, and get a new one. A 1999-2002 Saab 9-3 Viggen, like the car you see in the pictures, but lower down and more powerful! And I have to say that driving away from the scene that day was the best "HA HA!!!" I've done all my life.

A big downside was I'll have to take off from racing this year... My cousin who's good with photoshop even made me a banner to go on the side of my car.. (full scale its 12 by 20 inches
