I've had a couple points with a card lost, and my photo depository has pictures from two different cards, so the filenames are a little funny.  Nowadays, I pretty much take pictures from my phone, which unfortunately aren't as good quality.

About my play style, almost all of my records are playing with bar, but I'll try to put in comments when I get a good nobar score.  I generally enjoy playing both, but I'm not as good nobar.  (Check my photobucket to see some other accomplishment pictures, especially nobar.)

Tournaments I've been to:
July 2006 - Fun Fore All in Cranberry (Lower Heavy DDR Extreme)
March 2007 - MIDI's Sightreading & ITG tournaments at Carnegie Mellon
June 2007 - Beaver Valley Mall (DDR Supernova & ITG) and Fun Fore All (Upper Heavy DDR Extreme)
April 2008 - Beaver Valley Mall (ITG)

* Best ITG Expert Rank (displayed in a range in case of ties):
8/27/11: 143-4
* Best ITG Expert Percent:
7/20/12: 99.26 (rank 145)
* I finally passed a 99 average on 9/25/10!  It's mostly thanks to improving Tell from 93.22 to 96.25, but good improvements on Energizer, !, and Clockwork Genesis also helped.
* I finally obtained 100 official triple-stars on 6/2/11!  The song "!" was the 100th one.
* Number of Expert SDEs:
4/21/11: 74

- DDR AAAs in arcades:
  * My Summer Love, in the FFA tournament of June 2007, on DDR Extreme
  * Ever Snow, at Brunswick XL in Kennesaw GA, on DDR Supernova, 1/3/12

- One DDR quadstar on the hacked ITG machine at CMU: Freckles

- One ITG 3 quadstar: Coming Out

- I got a three-day quadstar streak: 2/27/08 (Psalm Pilot), 2/28/08 (Why Me), and 2/29/08 (This Is Rock And Roll)!

- My scores on Anubis, Cryosleep, Destiny, and Determinator on 7/10/07 rose me 24 ranks and 0.35 percent!  That's my biggest single-day jump in rank (or even single-week) since I posted failing scores for Bloodrush, Determinator, Pandemonium, Summer Speedy Mix, and Vertex^2.  At the end of the week, I improved from rank 324 or so to rank 288, and my average went from 96.26 to 96.91.

- On 7/13/07, I became the #1 score on the marathon Caddywhompus on Normal level.  On 7/22/07, it supposedly became #2 by a wide margin.  I don't know when this happened, but at least as of 1/7/08, the person who beat me had their score disqualified (I think), and at least as of 3/13/08, I was #2 again by 1e or so.  With a score on 3/19/08, I'm back to #1.

- On 3/12/08, I became the #1 score on the marathon Eat Your Feet on Normal level.  On 3/23/08, I improved this score to a triple, playing nobar.

- On 3/29/08, I became the #1 score on the marathon Street Beat on Intense level.

- On 10/10/08, I became the #1 score on Enchanted Journey from ITG Rebirth.  (I don't really expect that to stay #1 for too long though.)  I lost that spot on 10/20/08, when the song got quadded (I was still the highest triple-star at that point though).

- I finally passed all the ITG Expert charts on 11/4/08.  Improving Bloodrush and Vertex^2 that day rose my average by %0.17 and brought me up 20 ranks or so.

- I got a five-quadstar streak over four days: 2/9/09 (Little Kitty Mine), 2/10/09 (Kiss Me Red), 2/11/09 (Funk Factory), and 2/12/09 (Bumble Bee and Tribal Style).

- On 2/27/10, I became the world record holder on Para Para Queen with 5e for 99.81.  Honestly though, the creator went to my school, and not many people play it.  Lol for playing this song three years after most everyone else played it.

- On 6/25/11, I became the world record score for A Good Start on Intense level with 32e for 99.55.
