The time has finally come. I will return to the upper ranks of the PC Master Race! After sliding down the ranks over the last few years with old faithful:

I've just ordered the parts to build my new rig, and it will be Glorious!!!

Before you say anything, yes, the HDDs will be in RAID 0, and while the risk of failure is greater, given their reputation and my personal experience, I'm willing to take the risk for the performance increase and reduced cost for my game installs.

Well, I might as well use this sometime.

I began my mappin' w/ CS 1.6. However, a couple o' weeks ago, I had a falling out w/ the owner/admins of the only decent server I was ever able to find (by decent, I mean AWP/Autos are allowed and they don't mind swearing (some say I have an addiction, but I just love to swear, that's all)).

Anyway, I've now moved exclusively to Source ('cept HL1 and a mod or 2), mostly so the asses at that CS server can't play the maps I told them I was workin' on. THe move does allow my to create some maps that I wanted to though, maps that aren't possible in 1.6. By this, I mean my secret and original idea (least I have yet to see it done anyway) that I have codenamed 'reversal'. It should add a pleasant and interesting twist to the gameplay.
