Yet another year without the game that let me survive high school. Can only hope for some kind of progress report, good or bad.

It's snowing where I live. It makes me want to ride the Ski Chalets.

Heh, if you have the money, it's the best government you can buy ;D  For God sakes we're so screwed!
I don't but maybe the people who tried to buy the game do ;)

Just convince the elite that it fits into their plans of world domination, and they'll get CoH back online right away no matter what it takes.

Not to be a downer, but I just got word Strikeflame passed away today (I don't know if anyone know who he is) Just bring back memories of people who I actually never met in RL, but had great times with online.

We also lost another player. His name is Doug Ott - AKA Todogut. He's the one who wore the Statesman costume in Wizard World Comic Con a few years back. He also passed away. This community keeps getting smaller every year. R.I.P to Strikeflame and Todogut. This year is not having a good start so far.

Maybe we should stop worrying.
By the time an emulator or some sort of server gets up, it may be our descendants getting sued by NCSoft, not us!

I am very sad to hear this, he was a great person to play with

Whoa.  I knew Doug informally, mostly on the forums.  He and I had a friendly bet about MWM bringing the game back, which he unfortunately won, and he and I conversed about a few things including his Statesman costume(s).  I was privy to his work on different versions of that costume and his plans to invade various conventions.  He also made a video based on the demorecord he did during the shutdown event thing I and a few other players staged on the beta server the week before shutdown.  I hadn't heard from him in a while, but he was a very personable and fun guy in conversation.  I'm sad to hear he has left us.

Happy belated New Year everyone.

Never give up hope, because once you've given up hope, amazing things will come along anyway, AND THEN YOU'LL LOOK REALLY STUPID, WON'T YOU?

See, this is why you shouldn't just drop in and post without reading people's previous posts, people; I feel kind of tone deaf now but in my defense, HECK NO to catching up on every post I've missed in this legendary behemoth.

The news of ToDoGut's passing is not news to me as it's been floating around, but it still sits heavy with me because he was a regular part of the old forum crew, and I don't mean just everyone with a gazillion posts because half of it was from trolling; on the contrary, ToDoGut was good people and while I didn't know him closely, he was one of the familiar and oftentimes helpful "faces" I respected and always appreciated seeing around.

When I heard about his passing I was every bit as saddened as when more well-known community members punched their tickets; people like ToDoGut were the backbone of the community, and in that sense, family. Family seems like a strong word now that I've got time and distance and aren't around the community on a daily basis anymore; but time can't diminish what y'all meant to me for a decent stretch of life. Yesterday's community helped make many of us who we are today. ToDoGut lives on through that in a real big way.

Tubbius did not have to go to work on Wednesday, 1-17-2018, due to snow.

He doesn't have to go on Thursday, 1-18, either.  :/

This is fine and all, but it means he doesn't get paid for tutoring hours he couldn't do.

How are Tubbius' City friends doing?

We were at Paradise City Comic Con over the weekend and I picked up the mildest case of con crud I've ever had.  I'd be great if it wasn't so freaking cold here I have to wear 4 layers to work in my office.

I'd send you some warmth from sunny California, but we're fresh out.

Be Well!
