Forum Introductions! (Post 1 post to get a rank!)

Post by Vector » Sun Jul 15, 2018 12:44 pm

WELCOME!

Tell us a little something about yourself and why you are here. Even if it is just your favorite games to play, computer specs, or a link to your favorite mod-log.

----------------------------------------------

I am Matt Conwell AKA: "Vector"
Favorite games are Factorio, WoW, and Starcraft

My first mod was in 2002 when I built my 3rd gaming computer. Spray pain and UV reactive cables! Oh MY!

I'm in these forums because it's one of the best communities I have ever been a part of. Getting help with PC questions, opinions on parts, or even selling parts I no longer need.

Again... Welcome!

Games of interest vary. I game as often as time allows.

When I am not working you can usually find me with a camera in my hand out taking pictures.

When at PDXLAN Events, I find myself catching up with friends more often than gaming, but both are very fun!

Love about PDXLAN: It's been said a lot, but it's because it's true - This community. There's something for everyone! Gaming, modding, trolling, foodies, general advice/chat, and DIY "stuff.

My first ever "mod" was transplanting my Pentium 4 system out of a beige box, and into a Sunbeam UV Blue acrylic case with blue uv cathode tubes.
Zero cable management, and it was the biggest magnet for dust on the planet, but I loved it!

Known for: I'm sure I will eventually embarrass myself and this will be something easy to answer
First mod: Built my first gaming rig in 2007. Inspired by my father who made me watch him build computers when I was young.

Gaming History: I started console gaming in 1989, spending MANY hours on the Nintendo Entertainment System. In 1995 I was introduced to gaming PCs. My dad built computers as a hobby (and also has a Masters degree in that field). Every couple years I'd get his hand me down gaming rig. He also gave me about 100 games in 1995 (I can't promise if they were copies or not). In high school (in the 90's) I was one of the few with a computer. I typed about 80 wpm at that time and people would crowd around me to watch me type in a keyboarding class. This was back when I had to go to libraries to write a research paper.

LAN History: I've been going to LAN parties since 2004. I found the PDXLAN community in 2006 and attended 3 events during those years. Life took over in 2008 and didn't go to any until December 2016. Now I'm hooked.

Future Dream: I'd love to own a house on a chunk of land, that happens to have Fiber internet in the area, and build out a huge garage to have a LAN party every single weekend with family and friends.

I also plan on just gaming when I retire. I'm still trying to think of the perfect Granny gamer tag.

Love about PDXLAN: A stellar community that many of whom, would give you the shirt of their back if you asked for it. To be honest, I don't look forward to gaming at these things nearly as much as seeing & chatting with everyone that I don't see anywhere else. PDXLAN's are my happy place... Some folks go to, like the woods or something to unwind, I go to LANs for that... to recharge my batteries.

First mod: Antec Super Lanboy. I chopped out the whole front drive cage just so I could shoehorn an 8800GTX in there. It was seriously my favorite case for years and years until I destroyed it trying to paint it. RIP. Pic:

Gaming History: I started gaming right around when Doom II had been released. I had just gotten out of middle school and my parents signed us up for AOL. I played the original Descent quite a bit... thats what REALLY got me hooked. I've also spent lots of time with the original Diablo, and later Diablo II (ZOMG COWS). I didn't get back into FPS games until Half Life 2, shortly after finishing that I heard about this "LAN party" thing and the rest is history.

LAN History: Many a garage LAN until my first PDXLAN in 2008 (12.5)... Since then, I've been to every PDXLAN event with the exception of 22. I've also frequented many Intel LANfest & GNWlans, I also plan on attending any WVGlan I can manage.
