Schulle - you know Pentagram.... What the....?  :o

I had the great honour to see Pentagram in Bielefeld and Hanover last month. It was a unexplainable experience to me, seeing Bobby performing right before me.
Even in my wildest dreams I wouldn't expect to see Pentagram live on stage in this life. It was the first appearance in Europe in nearly 40 years..

A dream became true... :D

I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars. The rest I just squandered.

Talking about concerts, if they're in town go check out Dream Theater, Tool or Disturbed. Excellent music (Rock :D), and excellent shows. Three bands I've seen live the past few years, and worth every penny spent.
If you smell what the Rock is cooking....

well, its childish enough, but at the time I started playin online I was thinking about a "good" nick.
dunno why, but a song by kris kross (early 90thies) came to my mind, which goes like: "it's da bomb,
I know you hear me comin..." It impressed me, so I chose "Da Bomb".

 check it out:

later everyone just called me "bomb", so I changed to this then.
In fact I am only too lazy to think about a better nick yet... :P

mine is pragmatic. No have second readings. Not original nick, but it was first thought came to my mind. Could be too Swos_ fever_4ever, but i repeat, i wanted so much to register that i ignore a good and intelligent nickname choice. By the way i would like to change my nick, reduce perhaps to fever_4ever or swos_fever..:D . It Is possible??

My nickname is a mixture of my “Spitzname” and the team I used in Sensible Soccer.

From the middle of the 80s until the late 80s, we had a small community called “Jumpman neV” of 3 regularly members and some guests to play Jumpman on the C64. My “Spitzname” was “Mäck”, but it was not possible to enter 4 characters to the highscore list and it was also not possible to enter a “ä”, so I changed the writing of my “Spitzname” from “Mäck” to “Mec”.
That's the story of the first part of my nick name :)

Later, in the early 90s, I got my Amiga 500. It's my Amiga until now and perfect working :)
I played in soccer team at this time and talk about that I've got an Amiga. One of the other team members had also an Amiga, so that we meet us to ***censored*** games.
During ***censored***, there was one game that he want to show me. This was the first time I played Sensible Soccer, of course I got many ADF, but I it was the best soccer game I played before.
Some days later was the beginning of our Sensible Soccer Community. One other of the old Jumpman community, a new one and me, some times some guests.
We played every week and the looser of the first round called “Team Telekom”, because he has to call the pizza taxi :)
During the first years, we do also 2-3 tournaments with 6-8 players a year. Totally there was 10 different players who has participate at our tournaments.
The tournaments we played until the middle of the 90s and our weekly games until 1998, then I moved from near Cologne to near Hamburg.
I remember as it was yesterday. Our first version was 1.1 Then, there was a report about a new version in Amiga Joker and I called a small shop closed to cologne to order the game for me and I ride of my bike to the shop to get version 1.2 The same for first SWOS version, I buy in the same shop.
The next SWOS versions I don't buy, because I was thinking only for updated teams I want not spend more money. Now I know, there are also some updates in playing like heading during standing.
Long story, short explanation. The second part of my nick name is coming from the team I used in sensible soccer.
We don't used national or club teams, we used the custom teams and my team was fruit town, so I changed to Fruit Mec.

Mine is rather simple.
Queen is my favourite band, so I simply took inspiration from this song8)
