Which is to say that no sooner had I picked up the collector's edition of Halo 3 last Wednesday* when my wife called to say she was on her way to hospital.

She'd been having what we assumed were practice contractions all day, given that the baby wasn't due for almost another five weeks (!).

About 75 minutes after arriving at the hospital, she gave birth to Leo Keve Anderson, premature and slimy, but a health 3.175 kilos (bigger than his brother when he was born 2 years ago).

They were kept in for a week and are now at home, and all seems fine. This is a particular relief as there was some worry that he might suffer from Tracheo-Oesophegal Fistula like his brother. Nope. So thank fuck for that o/

*The devoted father managed to finish Halo 3 on heroic last night and thinks it is fricking brilliant, even if the last couple of levels are etc etc etc. See you online soon, I hope.

Congratulations mate, hope Leo and Mum are doing well.

Will see you for some online Halo 3 once things calm down (in about 18 years time)

Just as well you didn't buy the Legendary edition, you may have been tempted to mod the helmet and put it on the new arrival!

Congratulations to you and Mrs Flex! :-)

Nickname for the baby yet? I think you're pretty much duty bound to call it Chiefy!

Tip: SPARTAN 117 is only just acceptable as a baby name.

Congratulations. :)

Full working order, my good man.

And Budapest meet - what perfect timing! ;-) I'll log on later today and check my messages...I've been meaning to.

As for nicknames...the only Halo reference that works for me at the moment is "Grunt". Vaguely appropriate...

This thread goes to show that, due to a lack of RROD comments, that AATG is lot more civilised then EG.

Gratz on the kid fella!
