Quote: I have seen SC3's AI punch through brick walls . . . people have unloaded whole clips of bullets at it and hit nothing but air. However, the AI can never be as cheap or as effective as you, Neo, just use an iron sword and spam A+B and you will be the one.
Comment:

I am a big Versus/Fighting Game fan! Particularily 2D ones, but 3D ones are great too!

I have excellent eBay references and Yahoo Auction references. If you wanna check, lookup Klaazzen on eBay.



The history of my name. Gherkin in German means pickle. If you don't know what association that has to me, then check my "real" last name (Klaassen). You might just notice an uncanny resemblance to a brand name pickle producing company. I didn't like being called Pickle, so I chose to call myself Pickle in another language. Makes absolute sense doesn't it?? And to those of you who know that there is an "h" and "i" in Gherkin, and that I spell it Gerken... well.. I started spelling it wrong and will continue to spell it wrong. >smile



Trading 101!

Rule #1:Honesty!
Rule #2:Communication!

These fit together like 2 peas in a pod.
In every step of the trade be painfully honest with me, and I will be painfully honest with you. "ALWAYS" communicate! If you can't send out till a certain date, or something comes up that completely puts you in a pickle, EMAIL ME! I greatly appreciate it when people let me know what is up so I can know what to expect.

PACKAGING:
"ALWAYS TRY TO USE --BOXES--." They will prevent any bending of items, or cracking of cd cases with all the machines the postal system runs your packages through. If you are sending CD's of any sort as well as almost any item --BUBBLE WRAP--, --PEANUTS--(not real ones raspberry) or -- CRUMPLED NEWSPAPER--.

If you are from CANADA First Class Air Mail is the method of sending. (Unless we make a different deal)

Gold Star If you have never seen the movie "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective," do your trading buddies a favor and rent it. While I do not particularly like Jim Carry, you need to see the one part in the movie where he acts like a postal worker. (Trust me, you'll know when you see it.) That having been said, I imagine that Ace Ventura is my mailman, and I prepare my packages accordingly. Please, please! Take just a few extra seconds to package your item nicely so that I (or anyone else you are trading with) don't have to view the damage that occurred due to an ill packaging job. THANKS!
