I get it.  Hopefully that's not signs of depression.

Yes/no.  For sure it comes and goes but I'm getting better in identifying it before it gets bad.  I'll create another topic about that later this week (when I have time to breath).

It's a somewhat sad thing to think about ES shutting down for good. Like mentioned, some of us have 20 something years of history and stories. While I've never met any of you in person I do feel a friendship developed over that time.

While I check the site daily still, it definitely has stalled in topics but I think that's because most of us all grown up with lots of outside things going on. But I would be extra sad to see the community dissolve so I'm definitely in favor of moving to something a bit more passive like a discord/slack group where we can do the occasional group chat about something. Especially since I think we might need somewhere to vent in 2024 and I really can't wait for the videos from Jake.

I think maybe we just let this thing linger for now.  I don't have the energy or desire to do much with it and it sounds like people are checking in but not posting.  I guess part of me hoped a thread like this might spurn other conversations and make this place feel a tiny bit less dead.  I know we're all busy.  So... I guess... whatever for now.

I still check in regularly, but yeah... I don't post much anymore.
