O wow, thanks for letting us know. I guess it has been a while since this game started. Hope he goes to the good place.

Sorry to hear it. :(
I voted for an RHR Dental Plan, but Tyger would have none of that.

I've knew John aka Himmy, aka [NWC]Himler, aka Jersey{MOO} since the late 90's, when we both played the Quake II Chaos mod, along with Grinder. We didn't always see eye to eye, but in the end it doesn't matter all that much.
Rest in peace, Jersey.
You're perfect. Yes, it's true. But without me, you're only you!

That's horrible news. I met Jersey{moo} aka Himmy probably 20+yrs ago in Q2 Chaos then brought him into dday long bfore dday forums even existed, back in the days of no medic, no engineer
and of being able to stand, fire with the HMG (called it rambo'ing) Had some awesome times with him on chaos (showed him how to get banned in his clans own moo server lol) and even more good times in dday. Got to meet him in person, took him and his nefew to Show Girls peeler club in edmonton and just got fucking destroyed together was a good night, just way to young to have died. RIP JB.
