KP

Operator at irc.bungie.org (where the HIH IRC channel is currently located). An all around cool, laidback, and hilarious guy.


- I met this bloke recently at an HBO LAN, and I can truly say that he's a great guy...even if he does wear pink shirts. =) -Duke


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Stingraid I'd like to start out by thanking you for accepting this interview, and for allowing us HIH guys to set up camp at IBO.

Stingraid So, to start things off, what is your name, age, and where are you from?

KP Je m'appelle Kevin Paul! I'm 20 and from Central Connecticut.

Stingraid What other things are you involved/interested in, outside of the Halo Community?

KP I'm involved in generally shady dealings worldwide. So far as interests, Halo and the aspects of the community (IRC, HBO Clans, Forums) take up a lot of my free time. So far as time drains aside from community stuff, there's school (UConn) and work (RadioShack).

Stingraid What exactly is your job as a server operator on irc.bungie.org?

KP It runs itself for the most part. I don't do a lot of the technical stuff, I refer that to SanchezTheLlama (owner of Enfinity Hosting) because he knows more about those aspects, though I can mostly figure things out if they need to be done. I mostly take care of people who are being problems for more than just one channel, be it behavior or what have you.

Stingraid How did you first find out about Halo, and what kept you interested.

KP I found out about Halo when I was reserving my Xbox. They had a poster for it and at the time I was primarily a fan of sports games and a casual gamer on the whole. I needed a third game so I picked Halo because it looked cool. I loved the game and I came about the Halo community when I made an account on Bungie.net. Through b.net I joined the se7enth column. Through the se7enth column I found Louis Wu's lan party. I went to a couple before I caught on to what HBO was and became a regular of the site, eventually the forums and things developed from there.

Stingraid If you could change anything about Halo 2/XBL what would it be?

KP Well... I guess if I could change anything... Prerequisites for an XBL account would be some sort of maturity test. Send out MS employees to your house to interview you. And in the TOS you agree to a beating if you're reported out of line. Not one of those wussy beatings either, a good sound beating.

KP As for Halo 2...

KP Either make the flood fight tactically or remove them. I'm sick of every FPS degenerating into a survival horror after 4 levels.

Stingraid Agreed.

Stingraid How was IBO founded and when?

KP Eh...

KP IBO was founded earlier this year in April when Subnova was having problems at first as a back up, but then when people made it clear to me that they liked the server's uptime (amongst other variables) better I decided to leave it up and see what happened. People chose this server over Subnova, eventually, for the reasons lister prior.

Stingraid Are you planning on getting an Xbox 360, and Halo 3 if/when it is ever released?

KP heh

KP Yeah, I'd love to get an Xbox360 when it comes out, but I probably will not until January rolls around and I know I'm in the clear, financially. I'll get Halo 3 when it comes out, certainly.

KP I don't expect it to come out before I'm ready to buy an Xbox360, though if it does I'll just go over Louis Wu's house (uninvited, as usual) to get some time in on it. Wink

Stingraid Ok, well, to wrap things up. Mac or PC?

KP Well... I love my mac but it'd be tough to do everything I want to do online without a PC. Specifically gaming, of course. Every once in a while I think about spending the cash for a G5 desktop rig but then a game like F.E.A.R will come out and I'll be reminded of why I need to keep the PC around. For now though a Mac laptop is the best possible fit for me.

Stingraid Thanks again for taking your time to do this interview.

KP No problem.

KP Same time next week?

Stingraid Sure

KP Badum cha.

You can meet up with KP using your IRC client at server: irc.bungie.org , channels: #HBO, #HIH, and a few other popular hang out joints =P.

Heh, I've talked with him before on IRC. He seemed like a nice person. At one point, he thought I was trying to hack the system or something and shunned me from the entire server, but soon after found out it was just some glitch with my IRC chat client. Very Happy Good times...

I wouldn't count on getting a chance to talk to the guy though. He's rarely available.

H8 KP.

And don't interview C0ld. It's been done, with bad results.

One should interview Deimos, though, for equality.

And EternalSlayer? You are lying.

I gave up on IBO after a particular incident with an admin (not KP) and someone else who could've been an admin for all i know Sad

From my experience on IBO, however, KP sounded like an awesome guy (was rarely around though Sad.. or is it Smile?
