Bio

Bio? Umm...  I dunno. I like ponies?

What do you mean, that's not enough?

Right. My name is Nyerguds. That's pronounced Knee-Air-Goods, though the knee-air bit is sort of one syllable, and the "air" part is more like the first part of "[err]or", really. Like "Njet!", only with an R at the end. Am I still making sense? I doubt it, but, whatever. IPA should be: 'nʲerɡʊdz

I am Aficionado of the Written Word, Certified Grammar and Spelling Nazi, and have recently found myself shanghaied into prereadership because of that. Together with my regular tracked story updates, this leaves me with little to no time to actually write.

Contrary to what my grasp of the English language might make one expect, I am Belgian, meaning that besides the English (which isn't in any way an official language to me) I am officially trilingual, with Dutch (Flemish, actually) as mother tongue, French as semi-fluent secondary language, and German clinging onto the corners of my brain solely supported by its similarity to Dutch.

For the rest... I'm a huge fan of Fallout: Equestria, and I often hang out on the irc chat of fallout-equestria.com.

Besides ponies, I spend my time digging through the binary bowels of the first Command & Conquer games. At least, when I'm not busy programming to make a living.

Now,  you may think, this is a bit late, no? But this wasn't actually inspired by Groundhog Day, nor by the movie about that day (which I haven't seen, anyway), but by Admiral Biscuit's excellent story Silver Glow's Journal, in which a pegasus exchange student got acquainted with an odd human tradition that went against everything her weatherpony training had taught her.

Unlike the poor pony in the story, I did realize that weather predictions given by a sleepy woodchuck were not to be taken too seriously, and my ponderings on that subject condensed into this poem:


Concerning the Value of Groundhog Day

By Nyerguds

Oh it's just a tradition

Based on old superstition

You won't risk extradition

By finding it dumb,

So just make it your mission

To avoid all derision

Go ahead, make a wish and

Enjoy all the fun.

But in case you are fishin'

For some truth in the vision

Of a groundhog's decision

As it sees the first sun,

Then I'll make the admission

There is not much precision

In the assumed position

Of that old groundhog's bum.

(With salutes to Tom Lehrer, whose style undoubtedly influenced this :yay:)

Maybe we argued somewhere. :trollestia:

>>2309343

It's the patch everyone plays C&C on :raritywink:

And, I dunno. I often comment on topics in the Writer's Group forum, so that could be it? I'm also group admin in the Fallout: Equestria group, but I dunno if you even hang out there.

#139 · 33w, 5d ago · · ·

>>2309281

Yeah, but that's the patch I play C&C on. You are also the guy who found the unused wheeled vehicle logic in Tiberian Dawn. I was looking for that vid, and when I finally found it, I was like "hey, don't I know this guy from FimFic?" :rainbowlaugh:

On that note, where do I know you from here? Comments on one of my fics, perhaps?

#138 · 33w, 5d ago · · ·

>>2308932

Yup. There's only one of me. Same username, and if possible, same avatar, absolutely everywhere. :twilightsmile:

I don't have that many C&C vids on youtube though, lol. And the C&C95 patch can handle a lot more than just Win7 :moustache:

#137 · 33w, 6d ago · · ·

Is it actually possible that you are the same guy who made the patch that lets you play Tiberian Dawn on Windows 7? And also the guy with all the C&C vids on YouTube?
