Why I've been away...
« on: August 16, 2013, 05:28:09 AM »
Been meaning to post this for a while, so here it is:

I got a new job.  It started back at the beginning of July.  Pays a little better, and the hours are more steady (there's even overtime).  I work 10 hour days from Mon-Thurs, and sometimes Friday and Saturday too (although I've only worked 1 saturday).  Doing overtime tomorrow (Friday) as well as next Friday too.  Additionally, I didn't fully quit my previous job, but cut back to one day a week: Sunday.  At the new job, I work evenings and don't get home until at least 2 AM.

As you can probably tell, this doesn't leave a whole lot of free time, especially when you consider that my days off are generally spent catching up on chores like laundry, dishes and grocery shopping.  So not a lot of time for videogames, Excitebots included.  However, I still try to get on every now and again, especially if I have a Friday off and people are FWALing.

Anyways, hope you don't think I've abandoned you guys again... just busy.  Hopefully I'll see you on the tracks soon.
I don't always play videogames, but when I do, I prefer Excitebots.  Keep spinning, my friends.  8)

Figured you must have been busy with life, tJ.  Congrats on the new job...
A computer once beat me at chess, but as it turns out it was no match for me at kickboxing... ;)

Can't say you're missing much.

Joom quit.
Copper quit.
Maybe No Good too?
Cody is rarely on.
Same goes for FLASH.
BTC's FwaLs are seldom.
BIG AIR barely shows up.
SNOOOOG's busy in Cali.

Looks like it is the rookies time to shine...or ZLPs.

Oh and I haven't heard or seen DynamO in a while either...where has our friendly Canadian been?!

bots101, Cubestr, CATFISH, Tens!NL (unfortunately), and Adam are still around though so I guess online is still interesting.

But I thought I was supposed to believe everything I read on the internet?

Looks like I'm got getting that free iPad then. :(
