No religious insult meant, it's one of OB's catchprases from his Sheikh Yabouhti character in BF Evo games.

Take my love.
Take my land.

I don’t care, I’m still free.
You can’t take the sky from me.

Take me out

Tell ‘em I ain’t comin’ back.
Burn the land and boil the sea.
You can’t take the sky from me.

Have no place

But you can’t take the sky from me.
Thanks Derina. You take care of yourself. :)

I wonder if Mongoose are going to even contemplate making Ted Chang redundant?

Mind you he is a freelancer....

Sixteen articles over two years, the first of them appearing just days before my birthday, it makes an impression!

Hey bud, raise a glass from me tonight.

Best of luck, Ian. It has been a pleasure to work with you over the last several years. Your fingerprints ran all through S&P and they will be missed. Wishing you the very best! :D

Wow, im' really sorry to hear this Ian, you have always certaqinly been one of the nicest people ive had dealings with via Mongoose.

As someone who has had more than a few redundancies too i certainly sympathise with how much it blows, though i have no doubt you will find something soon (if not already) mate. ;)

Thanks Mark. My CV certainly looks all the better for my time at Mongoose and I'm quietly confident about the future.

Yet another mind boggling move by Mongoose

Postby Low Roller 1-1 » Fri Feb 15, 2008 10:12 pm

Oh man this totally sucks!!!!!!!!!! :shock: :cry:

I have loved coming to mongoose open days/ tourneys and other events -like the night out at last years Games Expo in Brum.
They were all totally fantastic times, some times i have nearly wet myself with laughter at some of the discussions i have taken part in with you and the regular group at these things. :twisted:
I have enjoyed the atmoshere of playing fun games with fun people.

You will be greatly missed my friend (in more ways than one)
I hope we can all catch up some where down the line. :P

Good luck with every thing and may the force be with you!

ps. This just shows you can never be too prudent. :wink:

Lee.
