About my callsign story...

In the area i live, we speak a very local language. And we have some words which represents some attitude, way of life... In this local language coincoin is someone very stupid who has nothing in his head and who tries again and again without any success a thing. So as it represents exactly how i am i decide to take it.

Also in french coincoin is the name given by a young child to a duck (everyone knows a duck is stupid).

I was looking at this little gun I have. It looks like a gun with everything cut off only giving and inch for the barrel. It measures temperature. There is an LCD that tells you the temperature of the place where it's laser is when you press the trigger.

When I was thinking of a good callsign, I was looking at the brand on it, Raytek. So that's my callsign!

Optical Delusion

Post by optic delusion » Fri Jan 06, 2006 6:00 am

I Waited too long to tell this story....
At first my name here was Optical Delusion.

In the town I live in, my grandfather was the biggest optician within three hundred miles, he had forty employees making eyeglasses. My father and uncle went into the family business. Eventually I was groomed to become the guy who took it over. I went to school and became a licensed optician. But by that time sears, walmart, and everybody else had diluted the client base, and the only customers we had were over 60. The business was going downhill fast. So I only practiced six months, and left, there was no money in it. It closed for good last year.
So it was a delusion that I would be an optician. Optical Delusion.


I changed to A-Delusion because, alphabetically, that put my server high on the list.
Take a look at my Defender game mode concept.

Thinking is not an automatic process. A man can choose to think or to let his mind stagnate, or he can choose actively to turn against his intelligence, to evade his knowledge, to subvert his reason. If he refuses to think, he courts disaster: he cannot with impunity reject his means of perceiving reality.

Lethe is-

1) the name of one the rivers of Hades in greek/roman (i cant remember which) mythology, from which the dead would drink to forget the pain of their past life.

2) the name of a song by Swedish metal band Dark Tranquillity.

I hope I have enlightened you all.

I have nothing much to tell:

My Original name is Jan Philipp, so everybody in my class called me 'JP'.
And my last name begins with 'T'.
So i just merged these 3 Letters.


I discovered BZFlag in a Linux Distribution.
I just started it and spawned on the first or second server.

Since this happened, i'm somehow sepending on this Game.
I didn't do much tk, only accidently. :D

Now, i'm creating some simple maps and i run 1-2 servers,
which can host up to 10 people :(

P.S.:
The servers can not run the hole time.
I'm trying to let them running as long as possible, but i can not find the
right Linux Distribution for my Computer.

on a more serious note
i dunno why i thought of the name 'Carrot Cake' i just did

One thing i've realised with this name is that people assume i am very young which i am NOT.

My first name was 'Spartacus' coz i like the film so much and on the odd occasion i use the name 'Bling'.

Why Splat? Real simple. When I first started playing BZFlags I contemplated using the handle “Cannon Fodder,” it seemed appropriate my first few day on SpiralZone 1.9. But I decided I’m just a big fat bug on the windshield of life and “Splat” fits better. Most days I can be found hanging out on LaserMania during my lunchhour at work.
