Hi, don't let my name confuse you. (It's a long story anyway...). I found out about Freespace through the Freespace 2:Colossus Demo that I got with a joystick.
I'm a semi-active amateur FREDer. My Single missions folder is home to many failed campaign starts (I must've done probably five Mission1's by now... but I probably scrapped about 10 Storylines.)
But I think I'm on to something now...
Anyway, I'm glad to be part of this community.
