I don't believe I've ever properly introduced myself. Site was picky about the username so I couldn't have my username of C-force. The name Cubington came about because kids always made fun of me in middle school and called me cube because I was a square on all sides, also because cubes don't roll. (They apparently never played a game of dice )
Anyway, eventually so my name would sound fancier it got changed from Cube to Cubington.
Not long after that they thought I was cool and stopped calling me that, but I still use Cubington as a username.
Now so you know a little about myself, I grew up in Gulf Port Mississippi, and moved to Texas when I was 6 years old. Right before the move I started homeschooling, and I'm a senior now. I meet up with my homeschool group on Friday's at the park. (Those kids that picked on me were from church, my homeschool group never picked on me)
Anyway, I'm related to super model Christie Brinkly on my mom's side of the family. On my dad's side I'm related to Lenny Pickett (Sax player on SNL) From my Grandmother's side I'm related to Jesse James. Grandfather's side I'm related to war veterans and General Pickett who fought for the south in the Civil War. I'm also related to Francis Mario "The Swamp Fox" on my mom's side of the family.
Anyway, been interested in modding since I was 12 and kind of got off with beta questing in Ocarina of time. I never got passed hex and UoT though because I ended up working for Flotonic, and he did everything in hex and UoT. (what he told me anyway) He said that all maps can be made by simply taking them apart in UoT, rebuilding the map, and then re-texturing them. So that's why my mods have been made the way they were.
I think Flotonic eventually went with Sketchup, but let's not get into that. I'm introducing myself here. Anyway, since I was little I've always been fascinated by video games. (Even though the games back in that time aren't so fascinating as they are today).
I like Toejam and Earl, Sonic, Earthworm Jim, Tomba, Megaman, Croc, Tomb Raider, Final Fantasy VII, Crash Bandicoot, Spyro the Dragon, Banjo-Kazooie, Conker, Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Smash Bros., Megaman X, Final Fantasy X, Kingdom Hearts, Rampage, Donkey Kong, Kirby, Glover, Soul Calibur, FullMetal Alchemist, Jak and Daxter, Kid Icarus, Star Fox, Resident Evil, and Pikmin. (all my favorite games
I love poetry, I have quite a bit of poems that I may share with everyone sometime.
I like Anime and Manga. (Mostly FullMetal Alchemist)
I like The Simpsons, Family Guy, and That's 70's show. (some of the best shows right there)
And I like almost any kind of music. Can't think of anything else to tell at the moment. But I'm enjoying my stay here in this community so far. And it's good to meet everybody.
JmTsHaW... I haven't seen that screen name in ages...
dj4uk6cjm, that's the spammiest username I've ever seen, not to mention that I've never seen it before, this warrants an introduction! *queue epic introduction music* err... yeah, I'm still working on that part but hi (anyway, when did glitchkill get new mods? or am I just really that bad at paying attention?)
I can't recall (heh bad memory also). Maybe sometime in May I think. Also, not sure why but your warning level was at 50%. I reset it now. EDIT: Also gave you some money in regards to your total post count.

Well, I guess it's my turn to introduce myself.
Actually, I've been browsing this place (very occasionally) for a while now, at least a couple of years. I've mostly making videos on Youtube (also very occasionally) of Majora's Mask of the codes I got from here for those interested or perhaps unfortunate enough to come across my randomly obscured videos. Of course, it's not like I'm some big hit on Youtube. 300 views a video is more than enough for me. Maybe one of them might hit over 3,000 after a few months, but either way a smaller community does have its advantages.
Anyways, I'm not necessarily interested in hacking games myself. Way too complicated for my simple mind. I do like to look at other people doing and accomplishing such things however and occasionally I do try out such things. But I'd like to think of myself a writer first and a gamer as a close second. To give you an example of my mindset, I always thought it would be neat to make a hack on a game that already exists and completely make a brand new story with it though, even if it used the same mechanics. The Legend of Zelda - Majora's Mask is probably one of the games that inspired me to begin writing in the first place. Also the fact it was the first Zelda game that I actually really played fully.
Playing that game when you are only six is hard, by the way. Poor Link had many deaths.
Majora's Mask was also the first game that I actually found my major glitch. The fourth day glitch (surprisingly within 72 hours of me first playing the game). And glitching through Sakon's cave before even beginning the Kafei quest was another major one (and was completely on accident due to my really horrible controller stick loving to stick to the right side). So not only was it the game that was a major contributor to inspire me to begin writing due to it's horrible (yet wonderful!) dark setting, but it was also the game that made me have fun and be extremely interested in glitching games as well. Even still to this day I still try to look for how else could I break the game more, or things that the developers did to make things work. And of course, unused secrets within the game.
I can't think of much else to add without this becoming like some huge rant or anything. So if anyone wants to know something about me just feel free to ask =P. I'm sure it will be a pleasure getting to know you all~
