Out of the Blue

I want to offer best wishes to one of our beloved regulars here, as today is Ray Marden's birthday. Here's hoping it's a good one Ray... Was Beyond Good & Evil your present? In honor of the occasion, I will quote a recent post from Ray:

"Let's all be pro-human or pro-Earth; screw fighting over race, sex, location, etc."

Werd! (Thanks Enahs.)

Happy Birthday Ray!

Wow, when I sent Blue an e-mail mentioning today was your birthday, I had no idea he would devote an entire OotB to it!

P.S. "Word" in this case is spelled "Werd"

Awwww... <blushing>

This is going to be a humbling day, isn't it?

Enahs, for what it is worth, I have been refreshing the page off and on so that I could wish you a Happy Birthday in the OotB today.

Methinks a certain 6800 GT was a present to myself. To be honest, the day is a bit...mixed. Right or wrong, I cannot help but think of my mother's shadow to a certain extent. The last two birthdays were spent with the "Are you going to die?" question and the last one was particularly tough because my mother was in the middle of her four month stay in the hospital.

She felt so bad about the situation and I did not want or need any gifts from here - I just wanted her to get better. I can so vividly remember that day and I cannot believe she is gone - I would be lying if I did not say it hurt tremendously. Even in the hosptial, with everything going on, she was concerned about others, particularly myself.

Thanks again, everybody. You are all a good bunch of chummers. Now, let's party... *<|:-)

Noting Carmack can e-mail me directly about early Doom 3 playing :o,
Ray

Happy birthday Ray!

Maybe we can take a day off from the politics/religion talk in honor of him...

Oh, I did get my 6800GT on Monday and actually installed it (Monday was a hell day... new code in production which broke). Still haven't done any serious testing, but it's already showing fewer graphical hiccups than the 9800Pro (which is going back to Newegg today).

I second that motion.

(Monday was a hell day... new code in production which broke)

This week has been hell...half the company is either sick or on vacation...massive rain storm blows out equipment and delays projects (not to mention having to bail my basement to protect the finished area until 3:00 AM this morning).

Anyway...

I've already said it but it's worth saying again...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY RAY!

Ray is wise and mature beyond his years.

He's a youngin' I'm sure of that.

Mid 20s, I believe, but you'd never guess it. He comes across as "an old soul" (as Bronco said, wise beyond their years).

Happy birthday to you!

Of course, if Ray is playing BG&E (especially the awesome endgame) he won't be reading the forums right now. I'm still waiting for the slobbering "BG&E is the best game no one played, ever!" post...I'm still sure that one's coming.
