    Anyway Blazz, I have another holiday starting tomorrow. My dad is spending 10 days over here from South Africa, and we're having the weekend in Dublin. This means I won't be on the forum this weekend and from tomorrow, will be having very reduced time on here.
    As you know anyway, since January a whole host of things have lead to me having absolute mind****, so I need these holidays a lot! :)

    The shame, the shame.

    I guess I'll just be eating cheesecake by myself.

    Now, to my exercise bike and trying to find a rowing club!

    Actually, just wondering guys, does anyone know what's happened to Psycho? He was a pretty prolific poster, had a few home troubles and eventually make a post saying how he'd had enough (I think) on the ruining my life thread. He hasn't been on the forum since July 3rd, and both I and Kidmod are concerned as to what may or may not have happened to him. Could any of the mods send a quick message to his activation e-mail, just to see if he's alright?

    Actually, that's a good question. Psycho last I checked was moving hence him not being on here as much as he normally is. As far as I know anyways.

    We popped Psycho an email. We'll let you know if he replies.

    I understand your concerns and it is nice to see that we're such a cohesive community, but let's not make this a regular request. We are not a community mental health outreach team, and sometimes you just have to respect people's choice not to get in touch.

    Begrudgingly, I agree. There are a couple of notable exceptions of course, but in general people just drift out of forum life from time to time. Usually a change of personal circumstances (or worse), but I think if we begin to get too concerned about individual posters on a regular basis it would become impossible to keep up.

    mvagusta is probably the most notable exception in recent times, but I myself am guilty of starting the "Where on earth is Unicorn" thread several months back.

    Yeah, Blazz and I were certainly concerned considering we talked with him on the forum a fair bit. I just hope something good comes of this.

    You've managed to make the same post in two different threads, the previous post in each thread also being posted by you. It's almost impressive.

    I see that I now have a role to fill the spam void left by your absence.

    Admittantly, removing reddit off my opening page on Chrome has increased my BT posting rate, and I'm also a happier person. I don't know if those two things are related.

    Good to hear Psycho is still among us. Sadly, I think you'll have a much harder time getting a response from MV :(

    Poor bloke. Did no one have any other method of contact to him, except via BT? No Steam or Skype?

    I'm guessing the answer is no. :(

    Nope, bit-tech was the one and only way I ever made contact with him :(

    [edit]

    Another missing member. Why am I only noticing this now? He was a regular (almost daily) poster for a couple of years.

    Null's quite a youngun (although nowhere near Blazza/Kidmod). My bet is that he discovered alcohol and women and liked them enough to keep him busy...

    We should leave these people be. They'll come back. They usually do. :)
