Introduction

Welcome, to the newest addition to my neohome collection, v.v.5.6. I've made quite a few more since the last neohome I actually had up, but either I wasn't satisfied with them, or they were very big projects, and so were taking too long to complete. The color scheme on this neohome goes back to my second version I ever had - I found that whilst digging through some old files in my hard drive. I don't have any (well, neraly any) images in this version, because the last time I did, my host deleted my account, so it ended up looking like shit; the emphasis is again on content (which as yet I haven't had time to proof-read, so forgive any spelling or gramatical errors). Please PM me if you come across any errors.
Profile

Well, I'm currently 15, I live in the North-West of England in the UK, just across the River Mersey from Liverpool. I enjoy playing video games and sports, and of course coming on NeoSeeker. I attend a private school, at which I normally do fairly well in most of my subjects. Seeing as how I can't think of anything else to put in this section, I'll post up the results of the internal school exams I've had so far. Most of them were just previous foundation GCSE papers, but normall modified to make them nearly to the standard of that of the higher tier, which is what I will be doing next year.

Sports

Football
I used to be quite good at playing football, but I never really get much of an oppurtunity to play it now, with the infrequent exception of Indoor Football or 'playground' football. However I'm still quite a big fan of the game, and a strong Liverpool FC supporter. Liverpool have had quite a disappointing season, with one very bad run of form, their worst in around 50 years - it was scary, Liverpool even dropped behind the Premiership's most pathetic team (Everton). Liverpool finished the seaon in a slightly disappointing 5th place in the Premiership, but with several key signings made over this summer, Liverpool will be vying for the top spot next season.
Sports

Hockey
I started to play hockey a few years back, when I was about 10. I played for the year above me, when we reached the National England Hockey Finals, I got quite interested in the sport.

Over the next few years I didn't really have much of an oppurtunity to play a lot hockey, it was just over the last couple of years that I started again. When that did happen, I started playing for a county side - although we lost all of our matches by a pathetic margin, because our team isn't actually a county, it's just a small peninsula, so the team's basically made up of 3 schools.

This season I've been playing much more club hockey, for whom I play in the 5th XI, at a position of right-back. We normally play quite well, and win the majority of our matches.

This season for school I've been playing mostly centre-midfield, but if time's running out and we need a goal, I'll be the one who get's thrown into attack, or sometimes when it's deemed necessary I'll drop back into a sweeper role. In important competitions, I've also been playing for the year above mine (U16), where I play centre-midfield or sweeper. Unfortunately, we narrowly missed out on proceeding to the National Finals with that team, losing in the Semi-Final on strokes (penalties), after the game finished 2-2; if we had won that match we'd have easily won the follow-up final, or to put it differently, if we'd have been on the other side of the draw we'd have had a good chance of going through. However this was actually quite lucky, as it meant I could play for the 1st team (U18) at the Nationals (they did get through). Unfortunately we faced a bad draw, and faced the top sporting school in the country in the quarter final, and lost 6-1, which isn't as big a difference as you'd think; I only got to play in the second half. We did however win our consolation match, ranking us joint 5th in the country - quite an achivement. I was alos a good laugh, all of the other players are good fun - and they sure do know how to organize a piss-up celebration!

My prospects for next season are looking quite good currently - I have an U17 County trial in a week's time, I've now secured my place in my school's 1st team, I may be put forward into the 3rd team at my club (which is basically the equivelant of playing 3rd Division football - if you're British anyway), and I am currently speaking to people about a regional U17 team (which also allows 18 year-olds to play o.O). If all goes well with that, there's even a chance I could be going to trials for England U17 (the year above me - next season anyway). We'll see ^^;
Sports

Athletics
I don't really enjoy doing athletics that much, but during the Summer term my school forces me to do it, so I generally don't try as hard as I probably could. Here are my PBs for my favourite events (the ones which I am best at anyway, or just the ones I can remember):
100m 13.3s
800m 2min 26s
1500m 5min 13s
80m Hurdles 13.0s
Triple Jump 10.87m
Long Jump 4.94m

GTA: VICE CITY

To be honest, in my opinion, Vice City was a little bit of a disappointment. I expected a bigger change from GTAIII, it is still one hell of a good game, but not much had changed since the previous installment. The city available to you to explore is, admittadly, expansive, but I preferred GTAIII's map, I found that more interesting. Most of the missions are very enjoyable, the graphics are great, and it does have good longevity with th appeal of obtaining the 100% milestone. Despite the criticism I have given it, it is still probably the best game available on any platform, and its huge sale figures are well justified. Well, almost anyway.

TIMESPLITTERS 2

Developer: FRD Publisher: Eidos Platform(s): PS2, XBox, GCN
Improving upon the original in nealy every aspect, this is a very fun game to play. The single player is still slightly lacking in levels, but the levels that it does have are very well detailed and structured, and the variety of the environments makes it all the more interesting; the enemy A.I. is always excellent and humerous. However the best aspect of the game is its multiplayer mode, which is hilarious to play, with a chaotic mayhem which always seems to be present; This is by far my favourite game to play with my mates - it's always fun to set a snowma on fire and hear the high-pitched shriek of I'm melting, and using the 'Firestarter' weaponset is always fun, everyone will be ruuning around on fire looking for a water source or a fire extinguisher. And when you get bored of the other quality maps available, you can just make your own with the incredible mapmaker tool.
Overall: 10/10

Just a little placeholder section here, where I can put some of my experimentation from when I was bored; behold the calculator; I could improve it a little more, but for now, there doesn't really seem to be any need. Simply select one cell from each column (the layout isn't exactly perfect, but it's workable).
