"Roman" ring any bells?

Kind of a hard name to forget, maybe lazyboneskoopa was the one... I'm not sure.

It was a 1v1 tourney, it had about 8 people I think.

TEFL and TESL are really the same thing...

I always played with reincarnation, flame sword, diabolical trick, glacial wall and orb... those were my signature moves.

Ah, yeah I remember you as Roman.

I checked the tourney threads and I didn't see any called the Pikachu tourney, but now that I know it was a 1v1 and your were Roman back then I might be able to find it. I played in a LOT of 1v1 tourneys and tag tourneys, I'd forgotten how many until I went back looking through them today :lol:

I'm not sure I know what the difference between TEFL and TESL is, I always just heard of ESL and I know it is pretty big in China right now.

I was older than the average Esper back in the day, when we were all playing. A few were my age. Anyway, I was working for Amazon as a Software Engineer, and all these years later, I'm still working there - now I run a pretty big team. It's pretty damn surreal to see all of the old posts and forum art. Playing PD online is still the best time I've ever had gaming.

Haha.. that's pretty funny. At point point I ran a team that built software automation to detect sensitive or inappropriate media content (amongst other things). To understand the problem, I had loaded some detail pages for Japanese porn that was surfacing in search results - and after that... oh boy. Let's just say I was getting some pretty creepy stuff recommended to me.

Getting OLD! lol and raising my kids. My wife says I'm a bad influence because my boys are so into videogames! Still go to Gen Con but now with my kids. Still collecting games! And PD still in my Top 5 favorites. Bought a new house, and living still in suburbs of Chicago. Bigger house = Bigger game room (man-cave) So happier about that. Have much less time to game, so have gigantic backlog of games I'd like to get to. Hope everyone out there is doing well!

Hi Talkc,

The site's re-launch happened on Dec 15th 2013 :

Yep, all old accounts and most posts are still here (a few got lost or cut off during the import from an old backup)

Yes, it's really been 11+ years
