So as some of you have probably noticed, I haven't been around much lately. 

Mostly this has just been because of my schedule. I unfortunately don't have the time to run a website like I used to. 

 

I want everyone to know though that the bill will always get paid, and if a post gets reported I get an email notification so I can take care of it right away. Nerd Forum isn't going anywhere, and I hope soon to have the time to dedicate back to it so that we can go back to having an awesome, active forum.

 

 

Side note, in the event of nuclear holocaust, there may be some down time. If that happens, please be patient. It's hard to run new cable while fighting off radioactive zombies.

I do get nervous. I'll be very upset if this forum dies too...

 

I've been here for so long now.

 

I care about you guys.

2018 is a year of major change. Even I can sense it.

 

But alas. As soon as I saw the topic, this song automatically came to mind.....

 

 

I'm such a pessimistic bastard now lol

Yeah, it's not going anywhere. The site costs me like $14 a month to run, it's on autopay from my bank account. Even if I die this place will be here for a long time. Yall will just have to deal with the Russian spammers. 

 

I've tinkered with some cryptocurrency stuff at work lately, I'm hoping to do a little write up on that this week and maybe get some more good content on here.

We should plan a forum game night and all play something together.

There's quite a few old games that are free now. Marathon used to be my go-to.

I enjoyed CAH a lot when we actually managed to organise it.

I haven't been around for shit lately and when I saw this thread title my heart skipped a beat.

I'm glad the forum won't suddenly disappear on me, I've become attached to some of you clowns.

 

I don't know when I'll have more time for leisure stuff but when I do I'll be more prominent again.

I've just started a super full time job so I can afford light and heat and stuff, plus I'm still running my business and trying to get an online shop going again for my patches.

Life is busier right now than I honestly thought possible, but I've got to do what I've got to do I guess.

In any case, I'll be around when I can be and will rest a bit easier knowing this place will remain functional with or without me.


It is perfectly acceptable to fear and admire a being you could not possibly understand.

Demanding jobs makes it hard to have personal time. Hopefully you can have some free time soon, and the forum will be here waiting on you.
