Let's start myself;
My full name is Robert Martin Plomp
I'm a 31 years old (1978) citizen of The Netherlands.
Married to Nelleke (in 2002), two kids; Martin (2006) and Sophie (2008).
We live in Delft, the city where all of us were born as well.
I'm a Lotus Notes/Domino developer/consultant/project leader, Full Time Employed by Canon Europe in Amstelveen (The Netherlands).
I used to work on a freelance base.
I'm also studying Theology on a part-time base on the University of Utrecht since 2005.
I'm a church (youth) elder in the PKN (protestant church of the Netherlands) and when my study will be finished one day I hope to become a preacher in this church.
I've been civing since 1993 (civ1) and I've played all civ incarnations since then. I also own all of them (obviously).
I visited the Ultimate Civ Site before it merged with the First Greek Civ Site into Apolyton, where I registrated almost immediately. (after the merger).
Right now I'm deep into Civ4 Pitboss Diplomacy Games (see Civ4:MP section).
We play these 1 - 2 turns a day games where we roleplay our nations into insanity.
I host and administrate these games, which is a lot of fun eventhough we had some (usual) not-so-diplomatic encounters as well. (though things are better now we have learned a bit how to deal with this kinda stuff).
In April 2009 Jeroen Schweitzer (a friend and ex-colleague) and me took Apolyton over from DanQ, Ming, rah and Locutus. Since then we're making all these plans and ideas for the future of Apolyton. Unfortunately things are far more complicated then we expected and not much has become visible since then.
I'm looking forward to civ network, I'm curious how Sid will pull it off!
Most of all I'm looking forward to civ5, but if civnetwork in some or another way will be a worthy civ4 sequel then I'll be glad! Who knows what Civ Network will do for our small diplogame community? And most of all: for Apolyton!
