I agree with this .. Seems like a please don't leave last hope thing to me .. If you gattta go the you gatta go..i'm sorry if this sounds harsh, but if people want to take a break, fine, but why they feel the need to announce it to the world is beyond me.
please don't take that the wrong way. i know you've helped me out on at least a few occasions.
btw, it is difficult to keep up with Off Topic.
I'm with LauraBee on this. I love this forum and peruse it several times a day, and never check out the new posts section primarily because of some of the mindless drivel I find. How often do you pee? Come on.Hayes, call off the dogs. All that person is saying is that when you hit "New Posts" you get all the categories mixed together. A LOT of people navigate the site that way (raises hand)... so yeah, if you just come by here every couple days to see what's new, you may get a screenfull of OT because of the current ratio of iPhone:OT discussions. When that gets unbalanced, people could easily interpret the site as being unserious. That may seem unfair to you, but you should be able to understand where they're coming from.
And while you are the OT king, try not to take this personally. Although that line "Maybe you should reserve judgment until you know more about me" cracked me up. You've left very few topics about yourself a mystery, my friend!
Well, I did well in French class in highschool, but that was nearly 10 years ago. GAH! Now i feel old lol. But yeah, if you don't use it, you lose it...
Either you or Starry should be a friggin US Ambassador to the UN or whatever they're called. Always enjoy your words, but I'm giving it to her on account of being a shallow type and her kicking your arse in the looks areaSomething tells me EIC will not be changing any time soon.
It's important to remember... 999's gone through some tough times recently. He understandably needs to vent. He has given a LOT of himself here. I mean, look at the thanks. Sorry to harp on it, but the guy is a major technical tour de force around here.
If he needs time off, he should take it. I'm sure he meant no harm to any persons in particular. He's just not into the OT right now. But I think he'll be back.
Glad to see so many are into the community here, though. Viva la EIC!
