OK. I’ve been an IT engineer for over 10 years now, and I’ve carried titles from assistant system administrator to senior systems and network administrator and IT manager. So this is not a situation at all where my resume is just some throwaway list of things that I think I’ve done in my career; I’ve worked hard for that street cred and it’s served me well. But that gamer tag? That’s a different story, dawg. I used to be a semi-professional gamer way back in the days of Quake 1 and Quake 3 Arena, and even today when I go back to those games or if I’m playing something else and I happen to find someone who used to play those games, the mention of my gamer tag “silence” (more appropriately [D3M] silence cause I rep that Team D3M that I founded way back) rings out in way with more reverence than my resume ever could. Just the other day, I was perusing through some Quake 1 forums where the old heads still hang from time to time and came across one cat’s greatest Quake 1 Clan Arena players ever and who else but ya boy silence aka sil aka DM3 Abandoned Base Water King is on the High Ping Bastard list.
