Howdy, application to join
« on: September 15, 2017, 10:14:33 PM »
Hi guys,

I am Tom, I go by 'tominator' as im a die hard terminator fan. I used to play various FPS's at a competitive level getting on for 10 years ago. COD, BF, CS etc.... I havn't been playing much at all for about 7 years but I fancy giving it a go again. Im 28 years young :-)

Im in teamspeak already and have said hello to a few of you :-)

Outside of gaming, im a long time high end PC enthusiast, overclocker, benchmarker etc.... Used to be sponsored by the likes of Intel and Nvidia in certain overclocking communities. Work wise, im a CTO, background in Technical Architecture covering datacenter network design, server virtualisation infrastructure etc...

Anyway, thats me! Im just looking for some guys to play games with again!

Cheers
Tom

Hey Tom, welcome! :)

background in Technical Architecture covering datacenter network design, server virtualisation infrastructure etc...

you could give EA a hand, they sure could use someone to fix the server lags :P
Do you also know something about scaleability on a software level / deployment design etc.? What company is that, if I may ask?

EA's terrible performance is probably due to them using the AWS cheap tier with no guaranteed IO on the storage, network or CPU. Looking at EA's pricing for 'server rental' I am not sure they will be paying for anything good if they are indeed using AWS.

And I've had various experience with software scalability and deployment. But thats very open ended and I'd need to know case specifics to be able to talk further. If its virtualisation you are getting at however... Then I am well versed in the likes of VMWare, HyperV, KVM, Citrix etc...

Hi all,

So tommorrow marks my 2 weeks  :)

Great bunch of guys so far and I am pleased to say youve all bought back some good memories of when I used to play with clans years ago.

I hope you'll have me as a big boy member :-)

Anyway, Im away this weekend with the inlaws, but I shall return on Monday night.

What a subtle reminder :P Don't be too sure of that! I stretched my probation period to 2 months, apparently I was very naughty.
