The carrot that grew up


#1

Hello!

Thought I’d wonder back in and see who was still around, been a few years since I was last here. So, a quick run down of the main headlines:

  • I met a girl, left IBM and moved to Sophos (2 years this month!)
  • I proposed, she said yes, wedding next year
  • We got a house in Didcot
  • I got a too hot hot hatch (Peugeot 208 GTi by Peugeot Sport) and swapping it for a VW Up! GTi whenever they can be arsed to build it (looking like late August)
  • At the grand old age of 28 my back isn’t what it use to be :frowning:
  • Man cave now has racing wheel setup (as in, proper sim racing) which I do a hell of a lot these days
  • Aside from PC racing, I spent a lot of time being sh1t at Siege (Montague pacifist that I am) or Battlefield 1 (still loving running around giggling like a little girl with a knife/club/shovel)

CARROT! Good to see you back on fella :slight_smile:

Cue “Hotel California”…

I saw some of your updates via the book of faces. Congrats on getting engaged!

It does look like you do a hell of a lot of sim racing!

None of our backs are quite the same these days…

Welcome back Carrot…

Judging by your posts of face-stabbers-book, you hate the Milton Park interchange as much as I do…

If you interested, the latest game on most horizons is Hell Let Loose (currently in Alpha Testing).

If you ever about some BF1 then I am sure some of us will pop on; my gaming nights are now very limited as I am on trial with my company for a new position in their SAP team. It does mean lots of commuting from where I live (South Coast) to Abingdon (2 Days), London (2 days).

Yep - in the MIlton Park area… we are the largest warehouse in the UK - built on the old site of the power station.

I refuse to believe that Carrot is 28. If that were true it has some disturbing implications for my own age.
