Not much from what i hear :)
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.

Here's a handful that come to mind - some way back from the Themis.eng.buffalo.edu server days (did I get that addie right?):

Zwei
w339
old dirty bastard (odb)
comanche
sponge
Shadow (not the one that is playing now)
badin
KATOS aka calico
prodan
mirella
bomber
orange
y o y o x
root
strayer
It's a good idea to always carry two sacks of something when you walk around. That way, if anybody says: Hey, can you give me a hand? You can say: Sorry, got these sacks.

Oma

Oma was cool because he:

1 -- Was reeeal good with GM
2 -- Was not a braggart
3 -- Treated everyone the same
4 -- Always helped noobs
5-- NEVER (not once) lost his temper or put anyone down
6 -- Didn't mind getting killed and could laugh when it happened
7 -- Was a good sport and would never dominate lesser skilled players

The reason a lot of old timers call it "the good ol' days is:

Count on one hand how many players match the above now.

Sigh.

I have to admit Gerbil that I can't be included in that group.

I've failed at 2, 3, 4, 5 and 7 (not too hot with gm either)

You are right, there isn't many out there with those attributes anymore.

Sowy all for raising a old post! (fearing the wrath of admin now...)

During my journey to the amazon...I believe I saw him swinging tree to tree with a shooting blue tank following him. Thats when I proceeded to shoot and rico off a tree and kill the tank.
