I can honestly say I have never used reddit. I'm not even sure I understand the concept...but meh.

I have cheez on IG. I don't remember fruit. I do remember ahluka - hope he is OK - if I remember correctly he was going through some life changing shit before he left us.
Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

I am friends with GC IRL but we haven't talked in a while.  He's up in Michigan and we don't ever see each other. 

Also, Reddit is the #2 most visited site in the world.  I would say it's... going pretty strong?

I actually really like Reddit.  I have pretty much stopped visiting a lot of other individual sites because of everything I can get so quickly on Reddit.

I don't spend a lot of time in the comments, personally.

Hello, fartfaces

edit: I haven't been to SA in years, I haven't seen ober in even longer :(
Most of my internet commenting time is split between facebook, twitter, and reddit.  I've tried to get into the newer social media sites but I'm pretty sure there's some sort of bright-line cutoff age where you just don't get it and I'm on the wrong side for anything newer than instagram.

Cheez!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  It's weird... I recently turned on user registration again at Knuck's request to let a friend in and it popped up that you were waiting to be approved, which I thought was odd.  I assume that's what triggered you coming back?  :)

Anyways, good to hear from you.  It's been forever since I've seen anyone from college.  :(

Beta suggested on FB that I re-register, so I tried to and found that it was disabled.  I tried to reset my password and that didn't work, but this afternoon there was a re-activation email in my inbox.

I keep in touch with a couple of my roommates from college, but that's about it.  My A-section counterpart is actually my boss('s boss) at my current job, which is kind of funny.

Other than that, updates from me: Still live outside Detroit, left Patrick/SAIC/Leidos about 3 years ago for a local utility, have a 6 year old and almost 2 year old, and all my hair fell out.  Life is pretty much work/family/gym/sleep every day.  It's boring but it's nice.

the prodigal son has returned!

Glad to hear you've settled nicely into a boring life. I imagine that's all most anyone could ask for :)

That's the way to go man.  My single or young friends talk about all the cool trips they go on or bars/restaurants they go to and I'm just trying to stay up until 9:00 on a given night.

I guess if we're recapping lives, I still live outside Cleveland, my kids are 9 and 11, I recently (1 year ago) switched industries and I'm a Dev Manager for Streamlinx, and my wife runs her own business from the house (selling digital designs on POD gear).  Oh and I appear to have had a mid-life crisis since I just upgraded to an Iphone X and got a sporty new car.

@knuck - 2018 Civic Coupe EX-T.  Sporty, fast (CVT w/ turbo), and awesome gas mileage.  :)
