He's been around since the forum's early days. An insight into the easiest one to remember from Steps, apart from Rachel whatsherface.......

1) Name - Pete

2) Age - 34

3) Where do you live? - Nottingham

4) What do you shoot? - My primaries are a Shocker RSX and a Empire D*Fender

5) What's your occupation? - Software Quality Assurance Engineer

6) When/how did you first get into paintball? -
First started following the sport around 1999 when I randomly picked up a copy of PGI in WH Smiths. Ended up getting it almost every month and following the sport on the early internet. Due to being poor I didn't get to play until a rental day in 2001 and since then I was hooked

7) What was your first marker? - Right feed autococker.

8) How often do you use p8ntballer? - Almost every day

9) What first brought you to p8ntballer? - PGI, of course.

10) What keeps you here? - Inflating my post count.

11) Have you met many people from the forum? -
Yes indeed, there's always that odd moment of realisation when you put a face to a username.

12) What is your dream gun setup? - Nexus DC2 in Turbulence, anyone wanna sell me one?

13) What is the worst gun you've ever owned? -
I've not owned many guns myself and honestly never owned a stinker. The worst I've borrowed was an early proto matrix thing that was just hopeless.

14) What's your favourite p8ntballer thread or post? - Opus Finale...

15) If p8ntballer was yours for a day what would you change? - I'd make 'The Fun Police' a thing again

16) Explain your username?
One of my first paintball nicknames was 'Harry Potter' (cos I wore glasses init). Robbo shortened that to H and it stuck.

17) Tourney, magfed or woods/scenario? Woodsball tournament

18) Who are your two favourite mods? Jay and Dusty

19) Who is your dream p8ntballer karaoke partner and what is the song? Honestly, no idea.

20) You're in the final of who wants to be a millionaire. Who on p8ntballer is your phone a friend? Robbo

21) Take this opportunity to clear up one misconception about yourself? -
I don't think I'm important enough to generate any misconceptions.

22) You've been asked into the big brother hows and you can take five forum members. Who and why? -
Probably a bunch of newbies to act as cannon fodder but because simpletons watch Big Brother one of them would probably end up wining.

23) You have the chance for dinner with any 3 people living or dead. Who and why? -
Douglas Adams, Steven Speilberg, Dave Grohl because they are all awesome and I've admired them for being such cool people in addition to their work.

24) What is your favourite film and song? Airplane and I have no idea, it changes almost daily. Today it's Only by Nine Inch Nails.

25) Tell us one interesting and one boring fact about yourself. -
I used to work testing video games for a living, it was ****. I'm able to move my eyes to point in differing directions.

26) If you could give one bit of advice to people, what would it be? - Wear sunscreen.

27) You're invisible for a day. What do you get up to? - Shenanigans, many many shenanigans

28) If you could be any celebrity for a day who would it be? Me, but a better looking richer version

29) What's your most embarassing moment? Nothing that I remember, probably something while inebriated at university.

30) What is your proudest or most memorable moment in life? -
I honestly can't think of a single one, isn't that kinda sad?

31) what is your worst habit? Being an insuferable know-it-all.

32) Name your best paintballing experience?
Warped 10man Woodland last year, awesome event and my first competitive for a long time. In the final game I managed to pull off a 7 kill streak before running the flag in to help the team win the division.

33) What's the scariest thing that's ever happened to you?
Last time I flew back transatlantic we had almost an hour of the worst turbulence I've ever experienced. I'm a pretty chill flyer but I honestly thought I was going to die. It's never a good sign when the cabin crew do an announcement that they've run out of sick bags.

34) You're on death row, what's your last meal? - Beans on toast.

35) First thing you'd do if you won the lotto? - Replace my ****ty car with something less ****ty. Then emigrate to Canada.

36) Tell us a joke - Two muffins were sitting in an oven. One turned to the other and said "Hey, it's pretty hot in here, isn't it?" The other turned and shouted "Oh my god a talking muffin!"

37) What's your porn star name? (name of your first pet and your mother's maiden name) - Indiana Thomas

Thanks Pete :)
