My absence.

Post by Cwboy1 on Mon Aug 27, 2012 10:14 am

Hi there, I'm sure (hopefully) my absence has been noticed around the forums. You're probably thinking, wtf? It was summer, of all times why be away? Well there are several reasons, before I start out, I'd like to say, this hasn't been a great summer, at all...

1) 1 week into summer...

I wake up in the morning, leap (drag more like) myself out of bed t 10:30am, I was enjoying the summer experience! I came down the stairs, put the kettle on, and walked into the room where I keep my laptop. Opened the drawer, and there it was, a glistening, smooth, amazing piece of technology, that I use everyday. Put it on my desk, plugged the charger in, and turned it on. I made my tea and came back into the room, then I realised my laptop wasn't on, clicked power again, and it made some weird noises, came to life, then failed again. By now I was getting worried. Half an hour later, I had cold tea, and no laptop. Then it hit me... the letter on the side form 4 days ago... My warrenty/insurance had run out... Repair now costs a lot. So I'm here for 3 days, with no internet access other than my iPod 2nd gen. I managed to get by...

2) 2 weeks into summer...

So, whilst discussing what to do about my situation with my girlfriend (who doesn't live with me) she bought up that it was her birthday in 3 days. I didn't forget, but I still had no present for her, and I wanted something nice to get her. I decided that the love of my life was more important than my laptop and bought her a nice gift.

3) 3 days later.

I took her out to dinner and we left, after a meal at around 9pm, after leaving we were heading to the car when my iPod makes a noise, I take it out my pocket, and it slips out of my hand, I've dropped it countless times, no big deal. I take it home, charge it and wake up in the morning to find, it won't switch on. Great, so now, no laptop, no iPod, summer was not looking so great.

4) Further into summer.

I call my uncle (who somehow is 18 - confusing family) and ask if I can stay at his for the night. He said sure, and I ended up staying there 3 nights. We played a mix of Tekkit (Minecraft), Xbox games, Ps3 games, and watching films. Neither of us got much day light and we both ate junk along with drinking can after can of Coke.

5) After that...

I get home, and that night, I'm sick, I won't go into details, but it wasn't pretty. I had the worst stomach pains all night and couldn't sleep, I think I drifted of at around 3:30am...

6) A few days later.

I'm still not feeling so good, my girlfriend is pestering me to go to the doctors now, but I recovered for the most part.

7) 1 week later.

One of my girlfriends closest relatives dies. Sad experience for both myself and her. Once again, I'm not going into details, I don't like to think of it often.

Cool Today.

I am using a laptop dated 2006 made (What a coincidence eh?) and it has just over 1GB of ram, Windows Vista, outdated security, and makes a funny noise when you open another tab... my good uncle, lent me his iPod 2nd gen he was going to sell. So, I guess it's not so bad anymore. I learnt some valuable lessons here, we rely on technology so much. That when things like this happen, things seem to go downhill instantly.

Anyways, I'm back and hope to be more active than I have been, also, I hope you have all had a great time whilst I have been gone, hopefully now, I can be a better forum mod...

Thanks, Charlie.

It's okay, I have been absent myself too. School is a lot busier than I expected and it is distracting me big time. The forums have been pretty dead right now but I am expecting it to pick up by Alpha release.

I'll be playing in Alpha, but after a week or two in, what with school and the fact it will be flooding the servers.
