The name is familiar.... Might have seen him when I first started out (Proton's Decks server.... those were the days...) but haven't seen him in a long while.

About 3 yrs...oh, yeah! I saw a guy named, like, LordChase and he had this thing at the end, and it said something like (Omer (so and so)) That's the closest I got to an Oma.

Ummm, merry, I thought you were around 10 years old? How could you have been playing BZFlag for three years? :)

May be there is mis-communication here? Oh well.

Post by Oma Herta » Tue Feb 28, 2006 6:56 pm

uiuiuiuiui ... so i have been summoned ;-)

The Red Baron: Yes, I'm still alive, but the battle cry wasn't heared for a long long time.

sn0w_m0nkey: Yep "my" satellite is up and running, for quite some time now :-)
yeah ... time passes ...
http://www.esa.int/SPECIALS/Integral/index.html

bryjen: yep, green it is .. well .. was. In the ole days green was a little bit of camouflage on the grren ground. And yes, i'm such a sissy ;-)
This was even before Onkel Frank improved the network code, so bzflag was finaly WAN playable.

purple_cow: yea, me and my GM ... a long love story ... and i still hate stose stealths!
GM is for the lazy of us, they do the killing. Even nicer after Onkel Frank did those nice flaming trail graphics.

Hell Ya: So you must have been green too, right? fine :-)
Or were you one of those *"§&$§&§ stealth tanks shooting in my back? hehe


Life was good but busy the last years.
Work was getting more and more challenging.
Now i moved to Munich, new company, doing GPS/Galileo stuff here.
And finaly, there is another reason for now-time-to-play-bzflag:
Wedding is mid June. :-)
Invitations to Bad Al and Onkel Frank are on its way.

I haven't been playing for a long long time. But every couple of years i download the actual version and try playing a bit.
But a few months ago (i was running in a green tank labeld "dudel") i was constantly going negative score.
I sucked noodle big time.
But hell, what's this? GM only for 20 shoots? WTF? ;-)
Hey, this is not the game i remember.
Complicated maps, flying (not jumping) tanks, etc. the game evolves.


So, have fun playing this addictive game!
But don't forget, there is still a life out there.


Regards,
Oma Herta.

A few names are crossing my memory right now.
And there must be many more i forgot.

Oma Herta,

never have i seen you, but heared many stories.
I think that name will stay attached to bzflag and to the good old days, them old days when even the future looked brighter.

Just a note, you know how "uiuiuiuiui" is banned from using, it was proven that it caused lag (joke by Chestal)
