So I'm guessing no one else is having connection problems? Apparently ANet hates me. *crai*
EDIT: So it still hasn't come back up. Maybe this is some higher authority telling me to get up off my bum and study for exams. Sigh... oh well. Tomorrow's the last day of school anyways.

I've had such an exhausting few days, Some stuffs going on IRL that probably shouldn't be posted on the net for anyone to read so I'll say what I've been doing but not why :p
Two days ago (tuesday) I spent about 5 hours packing up alot of things kept at my dads old place. This meant my room there and also then clearing the loft (attic). Now over the last 20 years I've kept many things that mark alot of stages of my life, including all the school work we were allowed to keep from my very first year of schooling (so thats 18-19 years worth of random bits of work[mainly dads thing not mine but its nice to look back on it all]). As well as alot of toys and collectables.
I had a corner of the loft dedicated to just my things for this reason. So Tuesday was spent looking through what was worth keeping/throwing and then moving it from the loft, to the landing, down the stairs and eventually into the huge transit Turbo charged van we're using. At the end of the day the van was full (and seriously its a huge van, its bigger than my room that I'm living in...not that thats all to difficult, hell the bathroom is bigger than the room I'm living in right now).
Today was spent sorting through everything that was in the van. Again Keep/throw and also "give to charity shops". We started at about 11am and finished at around 7pm. Lots of lifting, rebagging, arguing and laughing were given/received all day long (thankfully we also left on a high note as I found in the last boxes some awesome things). The vans now parked outside with the remainder of my things that I'm keeping and also what he's keeping of his own. The backs filled with about 8 bin bags for the tip and another 6 bags for the charity shops (already given 3 in earlier ). I have about 10 boxes/bags that I've got to shift into the loft tomorrow day time and then I'm done
Squeezed afew more things into my room here (though its abotu ready to burst in some cases) including my old (and still working) Game Gear+all its games, afew awards, books, posters etc. Been fun but very tiring. So now its 23:53 (11:53 pm), I'm rambling in an OT thread, and I still need to wind down from everything. Sleep wont hit me for a while -_-
I'm still on a high from finding a really really really rare LP from when I was little that I've thought was lost/broken for over 10 years now. I want to paly it but I'm too scared the old machines gonan scratch it to pieces lol.

That's the thing I love about sorting through old stuff. You find some really sweet swag. Clothes, games, old keepsakes, whatever. By the time you're done, you feel like you've got all this new stuff, but really it's just old stuff being rediscovered! It's like Christmas without all the money being spent. :p
Oh, and vinyl FTW.
On a sadder note, I got on GW for about 3 minutes, and by the time I said "hey jeremy" I was disconnected... *cries in the corner* I HATE YOU, ANET!
OMFG OMFG AS I WAS TYPING, I LOGGED ON!!! WOOOOOOOOO!!!!
I feel complete again.
EDIT: Sigh. When I clicked "Post Reply" I got disconnected again....

gah Zeph ... try to bribe some guys who work for your ISP man =)
oh and Zero, I know this feeling ... this is good sometimes to make a break, sort your old stuff (yeah I'm a pack rat too), donate for those in need, find some item useless for the masses but an item which means lots of things for you ... I love these moments even if they may be heartfull ... oh well thats life anyway =)

Wow Zero - sounds like an exhausting yet rewarding yet emotionally tiring week.
Glad to hear it ended on a high note.
What was the LP?

At last; records have arrived again. (Not those shabby imitations they make now-a-days.)
There are still places that make nice record players Also many record price guides/list will not be up to date or fully accurate.

Remember the "connection speed" circle, the one that goes green for high speed, orange for slow connection speed, and red when it gets temporarily disconnected.
Well, because lag can mean death to a Survivor, I had the brilliant idea to stick that lag circle right in the middle of my screen, so I'd see it turn orange or red and use that as a warning to move away from danger. But everytime it turned red in the middle of a fight, my heart would skip a few beats.
So apparently, my vital functions were being controlled by that little circle.

So, who has something exciting to share with the rest of us? I mean, it surely can't be so that nothing OT has happened in several weeks? Or is the answer simply that people have been outside enjoying (or cursing?) the summer weather?
For myself, I enjoyed the English weather far more than the current Swedish weather (and I've only been back home less than a day). In my opinion, partly cloudy days with maybe light rain are far far more pleasant than the constant barrage of sunshine we get here...
Oh, and the company was far more enjoyable and entertaining over there...

Heh - our OT has been quiet hasn't it! Glad you are back btw!
Mako had knee surgery last Friday. They cut out meniscus (or something like that) and then drilled holes in the bone around his knee because (to put it their way) it looked like it had been smashed with a hammer sometime back.
Softball - my team is 3 (wins) & 1 (lose) and have been playing one man down due to "no shows" on game night. It's still fun though.
My son...is growing up...
That's it for now...
