Hello and happy gaming, everybody!
My name's Will, better known in this crazy digital world as PaleGringo. I live in California, and work on computer and network support in a local community college district.
I game on a 50" Sony LCD Grand WEGA screen with a custom 5.1 Surround sound system powered by a Yamaha MultiZone Amplifier. My two rear channel speakers are in my vaulted ceiling, and as of mid-November (hint hint), I actually got my "center channel" more or less centered in front of my screen, finally. It's a kickass system. 8)

The newest hardware added is the 360, naturally. I had to get the silver faceplate because the white stock one didn't fit in with the rest of my electronics.
Outside of here, I'm a forum moderator over at a gaming site I'm affiliated with, http://www.thefallensoldiers.com. We do more than just play games... we honor all the brave men and women in the armed forces protecting the freedoms that we so often take for granted. Just recently, we've adopted a platoon in Iraq, and send them monthly care pacakges. Have a look around, and be sure to tell them that Gringo sent ya
I periodically update the GIF files that I use in my signature, so you'll be able to see my gamercard and a sampling of the 360 games I have (or will have shortly) at any given time.
Just as a note, for whomever reads this, I'm flattered by the amazing influx of friend requests on XBox Live. I'm working on clearing out some dead accounts from back on the original XBox but I'm still pushing 100. Whether or not that limit is actual or theoretical matters not.
In the future, if people could attach a voice message to their Friend Requests saying where you know me from, or if this new ID is replacing an existing entry on my list, it would be greatly appreciated. ;D
