Remember times when we had to gather with our computers to do LAN parties ?
(yes, I am this old, thanks a lot)

Well during one of those, my computer had a huge connection issue, which basically paused the game for everyone.
So, a friend asked "Qui c'est qui lag a mort ?" (who is lagging this much ?)
And I answered, covered in shame "C'est moi qui lag a mort :(" (I am lagging this much)
Then, from now on, I was "qui lag a mort = Kilagamor", the one who lags a lot :D
That is a cool story man. Cheers for sharing : ). LAN games were the best. I'm old enough to remember them too. Young players are lucky these days with the incredible speed games run these days in multiplayer. Classic days you needed patience for sure.

OH yes, I'll never forget the song of the internet 8-)



It's not even the worst part, back then (grandpa tell you old stories) you have too choose between telephone and internet, no flatrate, you had to pay per minute (and that can get really expensive, my record was 200 for one month ;))

But the best part on lan parties was the training, you had to take the tube monitor to a lan party first! I had a 21" tube and that was a great training just to get till a lan party! Kiddies nowadays won't understand that with their flat screens and laptops XD

It is a progression from a character from the space simulator Kerbal Space Program. As I moved away from the game due to tracking software being implemented my usernames have changed into this new form.
