Farking hell.  C'mon lads, say sorry, shake hands and make up.  Pretty soon we're not going to have anyone left here at all.  Don't just fuck off without saying goodbye or keeping in touch with anyone

Yeah yeah, I know, I had a bad history of doing just that, but I realise now that was very immature and selfish way to behave, especially to people that you've talked to for years.

I'm sorry Mike. I was being an arsehole. I have my reasons but don't feel much like sharing - not an excuse, just mitigation.

There have been some noticible shifts in this place recently. I think ethic saw them too which is why he left. I have no idea why Govtcheez left - I've tried to PM him but got no response. I miss Betazep. KenF has commitments that prevent him being here often. It's good to see vbp back, and meeper (even though he seems to have changed his name). I need all the non-colonials here that I can get :p.

Anyway, sorry Mike. You don't appear to have been here either since our spat. You were joking - I was joking by putting your post in the dumbass thread. :handshake:

I think the whole "cop a killer" thread really threw the karmic balance of this place off hinge.  ethic obviously has some stuff going down, as does 'cheez.  Maybe personal, I don't know.  I'm sure we've all been there at one point or another.
Title: Re: Where is everyone these days?
Post by: micah on January 30, 2009, 08:30:54 AM
yeah, I've gotten peeved and left for several days at a time in the past - but I always come back.  I think Cheez just left because Obama won so he has nothing to fight about any more  :D

I think part of the problem is that a lot of the core group that started out around here has simply "grown up" so to speak.  Their getting more involved with things like families and careers.  Its understandable.

Eventually I'll be the only one left - and i STILL don't have admin powers!
Title: Re: Where is everyone these days?
Post by: Jake on January 30, 2009, 08:41:52 AM
I think this is just our down time again - we go through it periodically.

I talk with GC and Beta on facebook - although GC has not been on too much lately even there. Maybe he has too much work :dunno: but that never stopped him before.

Does anyone else have an account on SA? does he post there?

Also, I think it is all RoD's fault. I've seen this coming some weeks ago. That is why I really hoped he would go to the navy :D
Title: Re: Where is everyone these days?
Post by: Steve on January 30, 2009, 09:31:58 AM
My fault?? Oh I see god forbid rod grows up :p

As for ethic he came back from his trip as a whiney little asshole and got called out on it, not just by me. He needed a time out.

Bah.  The "I'm too busy with life/work." crap is only good for so long.  After that it is obvious that the lack of posts stems from elsewhere.
Title: Re: Where is everyone these days?
Post by: Steve on January 30, 2009, 10:54:13 AM
I think for govt it is probably true. All the travel was really weighing in on him too. There have been times i have taken a break from here because i felt ashamed by the mess my life was in (im used to it now) and didnt want anyone to think less of me.

We all have our strange reasons but its the natural order of fluxuation. Alot of those on here with familys are the ones that dont vanish. It's those of us that are just aggravated and lonely that lash out and cause the vacations lol.

I read a lot more than I post.  I'm actually on here several times per day.  I rarely check from home lately.  I'd rather play video games or something most of the time.

And it has been "life for me lately".  My wife and I are both "nesting" for kid #2.  I'm working on finishing the basement and getting #2's room finished and taking care of the wife and trying to keep #1 out of trouble.  By the time the day winds down, I'm spent and all I want to do is crash in front of the TV and do something mindless.

But I think someone (axon?) was right... we go through these "slow" periods.  We just don't have enough people here to pick up the slack when a few let up a bit. 

So how do we find new members??  Maybe we just need to be more interesting!
Title: Re: Where is everyone these days?
Post by: Steve on February 02, 2009, 10:34:10 AM
It's hard to come across new members when its an unadvertised tight knit website for a closed group of friends lol.

hmm i pop on for the first time in ages and see this - bassy=chimaera - i forgot i had changed the name couldnt log on and have changed all my email addresses, and since I was last here I have moved house, gone mad with contracting (ie travelling way too much) and lots of other busy stuff. I'm also on facebook a lot (the url is in my profile i think if anyone wants to add - just let me know who you are :) )

Yep i must stay in touch especially as a lot of the oldies are still here - though everyone seems to have changed their name how am i supposed to know who is who -.- .

I havent heard off gades in a long time - he'd gone off back to spain and was doing his boat thing - sounding very busy

the answer is pr0n.

That's how we got Dalamar!

Seriously, though, Cshot only posts in fantasy or draft threads, as has Dalamar so far. Other than those two there have only been three new members in the last three and a half years (micah, me and KnuckleBuckett).

To get new members you could "advertise" on other forums you frequent like CBoard, but do you really want it to be like it was when people like ILoveVectors were trolling around?

Title: Re: Where is everyone these days?
Post by: Steve on February 03, 2009, 04:23:27 PM
the problem with this forum is that we have successful people, and total failure. Ok failure its just me. The point is we have no middle ground people really, and those we do are pretty damn busy. So we have:

Successful + Busy
Getting Successful + Busy
RoD

And since im poor 75% of the time, i vanish too. lol

Yup.

Swamped at work.  Heaviest work of the year coming up the next fifteen or so days.

Busy at home too.  Visitors galore from out of state, getting the new car, getting the new car serviced, selling the minivan, detailing the new car inside and out, cleaning up the garage, all sorts of misc summer activities, and still two customer vehicles that I have to fit in the schedule as soon as I get a couple "free" weekends.  Also I am taking on a few more responsibilities in the TF2 clan that are taking time to learn, understand and manage.

Skipping softball this year to watch the kid. I'll probably play again next year. Other than our one amazing run through the playoffs, we basically have similar results as axon's team.

trying to sort my house out (i still have one room full of boxes that i havent unpacked since i moved in 2 years ago)
been doing some horseriding
done some more Open Uni work (decided on taking 3 courses this year and its whacked me out)
built a website for a friend of a friend as part of my best mates idea that we were doing this properly since when he has spent each weekend out partying whilst i have build the website (so not a fluffy bunny on that one)

You had damned well better win!  None of the other teams have a bigfoot that with the help of a hairpin (keeps the eyes clear) can hit a home run every at bat.  And in the rare case you don't, what is it?  Three steps to each base?  Do the fielders still run from you?  So many advantages...

So today I had some fun.  We switched over to the new email system using Google Apps.  So we had fun trying to explain how mail will be delivered the next few days as we had to change the MX record.  Luckily it only effected our tech team so it was a bit easier.

But after the switch over I found out that I hadn't included our webserver in the whitelist for relaying emails to outside domains.  Then as I looked through the logs and through the archiving logs I noticed that a lot of spam hits our system.  The original plan was to just archive it, send it to google, and let google filter it.  The problem was that all the spam going to the domain was going to accounts that don't exist.

So in the span of a couple hours I had to figure out how to query google to see if the address was allocated, cache those results, and test it without the use of a test box (the test box is currently being wiped and reloaded).

All in all it was a fun day :D

The grill went well, but the propane regulator for the propane burner failed.  So the crack emissions team gathered a few fittings, some stainless tubing and a bottle regulator and a couple of hose clamps.  Had it working better than new in about 20 minutes.

Had a nice time.

Funny, I can't say that I like the details of it, especially now with a wife who buys things and kids that need things, but since I left my parents house 16 years ago I've lived in 10 different places. This last house was my longest at 4.5 years. I don't like the moving of things, but I do like the feel of starting fresh with an empty house/apartment. I think we've accumulated enough crap that I won't get that feeling again until I'm an old fart, though.

I think it's because i have a lot of relatives living abroad. When you do those clearances you basically sign away a lot of stuff. At any rate i think there is a process to get access to my "investigation file". I just haven't gotten around to it yet.

That sounds awesome. I went horseback riding for the second time last summer on a friend's ranch in the Sangre de Cristo range and it was awesome, but since I don't have a horse I'll settle for some hiking and rock climbing this summer

a lot of times the security manager doesn't even know the reason for the suspension - but, like you mentioned, you'll have to request the investigation file to see the reason.

if the security clearance was built into the PD, then a suspended interim would ruin your chances.

I think I mentioned it when it I got engaged, that was well over a year ago though. I don't seem to see it in a board search though... maybe I announced it at that other e-sink I post at....

Add me to the busy list. Been trying to go hiking a lot (gotta get that exercise in somewhere), right now I'm doing these 6:30am M-F(ish) hikes. Pretty great.

Other than that, I was in a relationship for like 6 months that sapped most of my time. Got it back though! ;)

Great except I've got some abdominal pain, confusion, a headache, anemia, and I'm irritable. Been that way for a few weeks but I don't know why.

It's the LEAD!

Spent a few days in Salt Lake City last week on a business trip.  What a waste.  I could have done my part over the phone.  Oh well.

Had a good 4th though and spent a lot of time with the family.  I feel a little recharged now.  :)

busy here too. Nothing new, just day to day stuff.

What I want to know, howvere, is where the f is ethic?
I was wondering that too

Went to Oregon after the semester for some time. Then I
cancelled my internet when I got home because it's a rip-off.
Then I reconnected it because I need it for the online class
I decided to take. But I'm still trying to avoid internet during
summer.

pfft. I was nowhere near there. I was in Bend, then I camped
at Smith Rock. Then to Eugene (to grab a pizza and drive by
my uncle's store where I was gonna drop in and not say hi),
Florence, Newport, Springfield (so my buddy could get solar
panels installed on his campervan), back to Bend (to get another
pizza).

I've just left my last contract (well about 4 weeks ago). Taking a bit of a break atm to get my websites done as well as getting more portfolio work done (as trying to start up a commercial photo business as well) - only problem is that I thought I would have time to do lots of things plus chill a bit but I still seem to be rushing about (though i have finished setting up my mini photography studio). This week i am helping a friend find a flat to live in (and probably helping him to move if he finds one) - so there goes the portfolio work. At this rate I wont have got anything done before going back into a contract.

I have been sick the past 3 days or so.  Plus I've been refinishing my basement on weekends and some nights.  Making good progress!  Haven't had much time otherwise.

Been working on the boat this weekend. Made some improvements like added another battery and a battery charger/maintainer. With that I had to rewire almost the entire boat - it was a fun exercise. Added a radio. Cleaned and lubed the motor. Started it up yesterday, no problem. Added a remote control for the trolling motor also. Got a couple more rod holders and some other accessories. Hoping to put her in the water for the first time this Sunday!

One last thing I will do in the coming weeks is add a bench so that my wife is comfortable when she goes out with us.

hats off to you, Ben. In the past I did all the work on our house, but this time I really don't want to do it. My wife has been asking me to replace all the interior doors, the exterior door as well as the trim for like a year now. Three months ago I got all the old trim down, I started repairing drywall....and then stopped. I rather spend the little free time I have doing something else.

I never really hired anyone to do anything around the house, so it was (is) a new experience. But so far so good! We had our floors redone a few days ago, and the next crew comes in to do the doors next week. The painter comes in a week after that.

The labor is surprisingly affordable. For example, the floor sanding and clear coating was $550 all in. I doubt I would be able to do it cheaper my self. And it was all done in a day!

so yeah, I'm blessed that we can afford it - house needs a bit of a spruce up. After this project we'll tackle one of the bathrooms.

Post by: ober on April 05, 2019, 10:11:25 PM
I'll post some pics when I'm done too.

The reality is that I didn't plan to do all of it myself.  I did all the demo work and painted the ceiling myself but I tried to hire out the drywall work.  The one company I contacted couldn't come for 6-8 weeks AND wanted ME to have all the supplies in the basement.  WTF?  Plus all in it was a little bit of framing, hanging about 11 sheets of drywall, mudding, and priming the walls.  They wanted 2K for the labor alone.  Fuck that noise.

Contractors do not want that type of work and have become lazy, arrogant, and overpriced.  Find a good one and they are booked forever.  It sucks if you don't have an in with someone.

finally got the front door installed - wooohooo....it only took like 3 months - mainly due to shitty handling by home depot. But they are in. my wife loves them, so I do as well! :)
