    I'll be moving on staruday and from friday onward my internet access will be seriously compromised for some time. It's difficult to predict how long it will take for me to get a proper connection set up. It could take anything from a week to six weeks. In any case it will probably take a few weeks before I'll be posting again.

    Best of luck with the move Morgoroth.

    As for me , finally a well-deserved break (if I do say so myself), as I've decided to NOT take any work with me (it'd probably just be dead weight anyway). I'm taking a couple of weeks off to do the Grand Tour: Barcelona (Spain), Mol (Belgium), London (England), Exeter (middle of nowhere :D ). Take care everyone, I''ll post tales of wonder and excitement when I'm back :)

    ...I found out yesterday that an old friend of mine died a few days ago. :cry:

    Apparently he was riding his bike when a car hit him. He went to hospital but they couldn't save him.

    I hadn't seen him for a while, but it was a shock. Until death happens to someone close to you you don't think it can happen at all.

    I have court this morning. I may end up in prison and unable to post here. If I haven't posted anywhere by Tuesday, then I'm locked up somewhere.

    I'm off for the Christmas break, so I'll be absent from the boards and SP for 2 weeks. I hope the withdrawal symptoms don't kick in! I should be back just in time for the new year's eve festivities.

    Take care everyone, and merry Christmas!

    I've been having this ennui for a long time and couldn't figure out what was causing it until a few days ago.

    I'm leaving BoM. Permanently.

    As much as I enjoyed posting here, nothing is holding my attention. I can only live by Whatnots for so long before it becomes stale.

    Tal - thanks for the great site.

    Well, it's my turn to say goodbye and that's what I will do. Perhaps not that many will notice, since I haven't been very active in the past months because of simple reasons. For one, I have graduated and got a job, so I don't really have that much time for boards anymore. I like my job and try my best there, so that kinda sucks most of the juice out of me.

    Second, there hasn't been too much activity here that would interest me and many of the old peeps are gone too. Sometimes I think everyone here is just a close friend of the admin and I'm an invader on their private turf. I got reminded of this a few days ago by Splunge, who wondered my "attitude" and why I keep posting at all. You know what? You're right. I really don't have any reason to keep posting.

    Taluntain calling me a prick still hurts too.

    Third, I found out that World of Warcraft really is as addictive as they say, since it offers a whole lot better way to interract over the net than text-boards. I'm currently advancing towards the Serpentshrine Caverns with 25 other peeps with my priest and it has been a whole load more rewarding than the ol' boards. It's also much easier to approach people there and solve your quarrels than on the boards, where miscommunication can last for a long while.

    The funny thing is that someone said along the lines of "We won't see you again now, Wordplay" after I posted about "Checking out what the fuss was about with WoW" about a year ago. Kinda hit the nail on the head now that I think about it. I'll probably drop by to update my fan-fiction, Secrets of Journals, once in a year, but for now I will say "goodbye."

    Just close friends of mine? I could hardly manage so many...

    As for calling you a prick (must have been a few years since I don't remember it any more), I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings. It's not really that strong of an insult though, and I'm sure it was justified if I resorted to using it at the time. But that's ancient history in Internet time.

    As for WoW, well, you're not its first BoM victim and I'm certain not the last. Work is going on to make plain-ol' message boards more in keeping with the times, though. Check back in every once in a while.
