If I could only say one thing about Dimmerswitch, it would be that he is one of the nicest people I know.

Fortunately, I am allowed to say many more things about Dimmerswitch, but it is really hard for me to really say what I think of this wonderful person. When I lost my job last year, Dimmerswitch was there to help me keep my head above water. Through afternoon games of Team Fortress 2 and endless hours of Football Manager, he was able to keep me sane despite going through his own health issues. Because that is the kind of classy guy he is.

Dimmerswitch is and has been my Gamers With Jobs conscience, that little white angel on my shoulder. He has remained level-headed in many situations where I behaved regrettably. Eventually I figured out to speak to him before I said something idiotic. I highly recommend it to everyone: Before you post something in anger, just shoot Dimmer a quick PM.

Let me end with this story. He messaged me on Steam one day, starting with these words: "I screwed up last night. I got really drunk." I really wasn't sure where this was going, and I wasn't prepared for what he said next. "I blew my team's entire transfer funds on 6 strikers." Now, a quick explanation for those who don't follow soccer: A striker is an attacking player, and you don't need six starting strikers on your team. I think he spent an entire season dealing with these player's egos. I am also pleased to say that Dimmer didn't fully learn from this situation, and I got quite a few more messages of drunk regret in regards to his team's funds.

So let's all raise a glass — and I don't care if you are at work, go get some booze — and let's all raise a glass to this stand-up gentlemann!
