Hi Noone!

I just felt nostalgic today, so I figured I'd pen a letter to the great white unknown.

So when last we met, I was probably graduating from college in my hometown, and probably still working in the mental heath unit at the hospital.

Well, after I got my BS in comp sci, I went and worked for some shithole company locally as a garbage 'programmer' for 10 years. Then about maybe 18 months or so ago, my parents started dying.

My dad got thyroid cancer and my mom brain. I basically quit my job and nursed both of them to death. It's super hard to take care of 2 people who are both terminally ill, but with no job or family and few friends to worry about, I had ample free time.

I left town shortly after that and moved in with my sister. I'm now roughly a 40 year old single unemployed man living in his sisters basement.

On the bright side I recently built a new computer and got the Vive VR system, and honestly virtual reality is super great compared to the real thing.

I miss you all, all the time I spent in forums and playing online games with some of you. I miss the late night chats on IRC. I miss being young and full of hope.

I tried, but the channel didn't exist when I checked the last known location. Thank you for the updated info! I will definitely stop by!

While I am great, I'm not unknown. :-)

Urg... That sucks. My condolences. I haven't lost a parent yet, fortunately, but it's inevitable.

I'm just waiting waiting for AMD's Ryzen & Vega releases. I'll probably build a new system from the group up later this year. I just had to buy a new vidcard (R9 470) because one of my asshole cats sprayed my pc and shorted out my old one. At least i'll have a back up card later. My CPU, mobo, case, PSU, and ram are almost 6 years old.

We're still around on IRC, although I'm not sure how late night anyone stays.
