The Other Side forums - suitable for mature readers! _ Daily life _ Official Thread For "being Away For A While"

Posted by: the lil' pie fairy Feb 25 2004, 02:34 PM

it's just a wee idea i had, there might be another one, or it might not work. either way, a mod can delete it if it's not needed etc.

just thought, all the time there are threads from people saying they'll be away for a while, or they can't get online, or they're just downright leaving because of RL. so, i guessed a thread where people can just announce it might save mata's space, which is always a good thing.

unsure.gif

some feedback on this??

Posted by: CommieBastard Feb 25 2004, 02:42 PM

That's a good idea, Pie smile.gif Particularly recently there have been lots of these threads, and a central organisation for them would save space.

please spill who this is lil??

Posted by: Pixiegoth Feb 25 2004, 02:48 PM

Yes but perhaps it could be pinned as people tend to leave in groups. Not that they all leave to be together or they are sheep but I just noticed that there seem to be a lot recently and then there will be none for ages and then another bunch smile.gif If it's pinned then it won't get lost when no one leaves for a while. Plus we can remember who's left and see if they come back. What about a welcome back thread too?!?!?! unsure.gif

Posted by: the lil' pie fairy Feb 25 2004, 02:52 PM

wow, an idea that works? *proud*
if someone pinned this, that would be awesome. someone else can make the welcome back thread if they want?

and lilac, it was just a couple of people who have RL commitments, like leo and missy, not to worry.

Yeah it just happens I guess. I don't get that much time to get on here if I'm busy at work (my connection is work based) and I can't get on during the evening as I don't own a computer or have internet access at home (too expensive sad.gif). RL means real life by the way. Sorry if you knew that already biggrin.gif

Posted by: Jonman Feb 25 2004, 03:13 PM

PINNED!

Nice idea.

Posted by: the lil' pie fairy Feb 25 2004, 03:24 PM

thanks biggrin.gif

so, if people could just put their leaving announcements here, with any contact details, reasons and stuff needed, that'd be swell smile.gif

Posted by: Jonman Feb 25 2004, 04:47 PM

And while we're here, I'm going to be away for a while as of the end of this week, as I'm moving back to Blighty, and it'll be a good few weeks before I'm in a flat and got my laptop hooked up to the interweb.

Posted by: leopold Feb 25 2004, 09:51 PM

Nice idea, Pie! smile.gif

Well, I s'pose I'd best put in here that, while not entirely absent forever, I'm hardly ever around any more. RL is just too damn interesting these days* for me to spend my time lurking on the 'net and giving fellow netites hugs. I'd much rather spend the time with the new woman in my life, and the three kids, and brushing up for my MCSE (which is still 18 months off completion, realistically).

* Apart from the job. That still sucks large style.

Anyways, anyone who wants to get in touch can do so using my email addy, which is leopold@leagueofish.co.uk. Yep, the site is gone but the addy lives on!!

Yeah you keep saying that but you post on here almost as much as me so tongue.gif Joking aside it's cool that you have sorted your life out and if I could do anything to keep you on more often I would biggrin.gif

Posted by: phoenix Mar 10 2004, 05:58 AM

ello, sure some of you remember me. i been gone for a bit (like a week, so not really a long time) but i probably going to be gone longer, some things have opened up in my life, i have been spend quite a bit of time with some RL friends and i grown to like not being home at night tongue.gif . well that and my work hours jumping up by 5 a week. so im working full time, going to school full time, and for extra kicks and grins im juggling a social life in there as well laugh.gif . i have to say that im am really happy in this new change. i miss you guys greatly, and im still loving the lot of you whom i grown especially close too. i'll still be online and such, just not nearly as much, and chances are... not at all on weekends. <BIGhugglesandsmooches> so til we all bump in to each other again-

while i'm here... i don't post as often as i used to back in the day *sigh memories* i still try and get on once a day, but this may proove difficult, due to, my college course with i enjoy throughly, trying to sort out my ever changing band, and somethings scary is happening... i seem to have devloped a social life,,, creepy i know, it seems to have snuck up on me, from hanging around st. marys a bit (because of someone i met on these very boards!!!) to going to the red rose and the surgery (pub-ish rock club type places) and now i seem to have real friends... oh well i'll enjoy it while it lasts!!!

You can but try.

I suppose that I should mention that I'm not away in any form. I'm just a little nervous in myself at the moment and, while I check in several times a day, am not posting a great deal.

Posted by: Enslaved Mar 13 2004, 01:35 PM

Well this is my "Official Thread for Being Away for a While".

Just incase anyone happens to go ohmy.gif wonder where that Enslaved person is. She hasn't been spamming the threads of late. But its highly unlikely that thought will occur in anyones mind.

So yes, I am officialling going to be away from here from Mar 15 - 22 cuz I have to go on a frikken stupid holiday with my mum to Bali. (she couldn't find anyone that could afford to go with her so she said she'd pay for me to go, which is the only reason I'm going) So I'll be grumpy the whole time (unless I find an internet cafe, which is possible). *Considers being drunk the whole time cuz that would be fun*

So yeh, "being away for a while".

*hopes she doesnt get bombed* sad.gif

Posted by: the lil' pie fairy Mar 14 2004, 02:07 AM

you'll be fine, and i would have noticed cause i like your threads and random questions about the motives of polls smile.gif
don't get bombed, have a good holiday if you can, and get pictures so we can all see bali (without the risk of bombing) laugh.gif

Posted by: Enslaved Mar 14 2004, 09:29 AM

Hehe, thankyou. Yes, I get quite easily distracted and start taking about random things / questions instead of just relpying. My bad sad.gif

I'm sure I will have a good holiday, I am looking forward to it (cept I will be paranoid the whole time, wondering when the bomb is gonna fall... AAAAIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! Ahhh, just fireworks rolleyes.gif

I will be back (with pictures), or in a body bag sad.gif

Posted by: Enslaved Mar 14 2004, 10:44 AM

I just checked the weather forecast for Bali this week and its: Thunderstorms!!!

Yep, all week!!! Tehehe I love it!!! Oooh I get to play in the rain all week laugh.gif

And if I don't get bombed, there's always the chance of getting hit by lightning unsure.gif

Posted by: snoo Mar 14 2004, 11:57 AM

oooh have fun! enjoy the rain but dodge te lightning...please? wouldn't want you to come back with big scarily singed and frizzy hair blink.gif

*wants a holiday* dry.gif

*doesn't plan on getting hit by lightning* sad.gif

I'm obsessed with my hair!!! laugh.gif

Does this mean we have to unchain you from the wall? But you make such a lovely decoration for our wall!! ohmy.gif biggrin.gif
Enjoy your thunder storms! biggrin.gif

Stay safe, get drunk and i'll look after the green goblins for you!! laugh.gif

*considers chaining Cath to the wall for while Nat is away* hmmmm... tongue.gif

Posted by: Silver Star Angel of Da Towers Mar 14 2004, 07:11 PM

Well, actually, I'm back. I just wanted to see if anybody had any problems or needed cheering up while I was gone. If you need anything, just ask me! *hugs all and gives all the noobs cake*

Posted by: MistressAlti Mar 19 2004, 05:45 AM

Leaving for a week-long trip to Philadelphia, NYC, and possibly a few other places tomorrow. Actually, I fly out on Saturday morning, but tomorrow the posse comes home with me, so the vacation technically starts that night. It should be wicked fun (as long as everyone gets along, they've had trouble with that lately) and hopefully there'll be plenty of incriminating photos taken. laugh.gif Anyway, see everyone in a week or so.

Oh btw, is there an official "Coming Back from Being Away for a While" thread???

^there should be...someone should make one...?

Posted by: MistressAlti Mar 27 2004, 02:07 AM

Okay, well, I'm back, more or less. It's Friday and although I don't technically come home until Sunday, I have a computer for the moment. Spring Break was busy yet awesome.

Posted by: TigerLily013 Mar 31 2004, 12:13 AM

Since I am semi closest to this forum, I thought this would be a good spot to explain.

This may seem stupid or silly to some, but its all good in the long run. My cat Max went missing November 15th 2003, and never was found. It's especially hard because I've had that cat for a long time, ever since I was 6 years old. He really ment a lot to me. Anyway you guys should know that already. Well, his birthday will be coming up in April. It will also be my website's 1 year birthday. So I thought as something that could potentionally help others, I decided to make a celebration or "holiday" put in loose terms for the whole month of april.

Basically, I know a lot of people who have lost their pets or have had to put their beloved cat or dog down. It can be really hard on the owners that are really close to their pets. In honour of my wonderful cat Maxwell, I dub April on my site and around me "Maxwell Awareness Month" or MAM. This month will be an excellent time to reflect on the lives of your pets, because they too were part of your family I am sure.

As the first order of MAM, I will be taking a vow of silence upon this forum. I might do it on the other forums I go on, but I generally do not post as much at OCR or SB as I do here. This silence will mean I will not post a single thing...nothing...nadda, not even a response to something really insulting. I will probably still lurk, but I will not be going to be posting anything for a month. If anyone else wants to join, feel free.

Basically the rules are that You can not post in the desired forum of your choice (I chose this one because little people will give a hoot). You can talk to people obviously in RL and online, but the rule applies to the forum in question AND chatrooms...only to people whom you find close (like in RL or on messengers.)

This time is you let you be able to reflect and remember the pets you wanna remember. To be able to something in honour of them. It's not that big to others but to me it'll be a big deal. I'll be updating my site a bit more regularly in that month so if you REALLY wanna find out what's going on with me, just go to my site.

Anyways, I went on enough. I'm still here but I will commence silence as soon as April 1st hits. This is just advance sign off until then. Well...that's all.

Posted by: the lil' pie fairy Mar 31 2004, 10:47 AM

nah, loads of people will miss you! i don't know you that well, but i'd notice if you went silentio. well, good idea, it really made me think. i might take it up on my other forum smile.gif

Posted by: Aeline Mar 31 2004, 10:37 PM

Well... I'm leaving. I don't have a particular reason why, but I am. Don't know if I'll be back, probably not.
*takes The Other Side forum off her favorites*
I'll still support Mata and his site.. just you won't be seeing me on the forum anymore. It's been a good few days, thanks for making me feel welcome while I was here. smile.gif
I hope you all can continue on with being happy, good luck to you all.

Posted by: TigerLily013 Apr 1 2004, 03:48 AM

Sorry to see you go man. Hope everything is ok, take care Aeline.

Pie: Well I am glad I got at least one person to think, which is definitely still worth it. Yeah I dunno you that well either but thanks a bunch for noticing me around. Definitely let me know if you do try the silence vow on that other forum smile.gif

Probably I will post if an emergency arises, but that is unlikely that will happen.

Posted by: Polocrunch Apr 3 2004, 06:56 AM

I'm orf for a week now. I'll be gallivanting around the Lake District until Saturday evening, or maybe Sunday afternoon. I don't actually know when I'll be back, but I do know that it'll be soon!

Cry yourselves to sleep over me.

Teh Polos.

Posted by: gothictheysay Apr 4 2004, 02:42 AM

Awww. Bye, Aeline. Polos, I'm going to miss all your solid, witty responses. Come back soon.

Posted by: The Tortured Soul Apr 4 2004, 06:25 PM

i thought here would be best place to announce it as any...

I'm sorry i have been completely gone for some time, although i'm off college now, I may dissappear again soon as i have a HUGE essay to do for college for the day we get back!!!

but i have been doing lots of work for college yes, but more fun... as i may have said in other threads, i have been going to rock nights at this bar/club trying to cure my single status... well recently a month of going to this place and mingling has paid off!!! and i couldn't be happier... but i'm still going, it is where me and my girlfriend meet up... but hopefully i will be here more, but i cannot promis anything...

Posted by: the lil' pie fairy Apr 16 2004, 08:36 AM

i'm back...yep, well, if anyones noticed, it was cause my parentals took away my intynet sad.gif
missed everyone though *attacks all with hugs and pie*

Posted by: gothictheysay Apr 17 2004, 12:01 AM

Hey, I really love you guys, but I don't think I'll be hanging around here for a little bit maybe, or not as much. I have a lot going on and everything's really messed up with me...I feel horrible. I have a lot to get over, but thanks to you guys for being there, and I'll come back when I can. smile.gif

Posted by: Sir Maxerpopple Apr 18 2004, 07:43 PM

Hope you'll be able to work everything out, or at least start on it. If you ever need help you have it here on the forum.

Posted by: gothictheysay Apr 19 2004, 01:05 AM

Eh, bugger, you guys'll have to deal with me. I'm using the forum as an escape as I have to deal with so much crap. Sorting through the crap is going to be quite difficult, but i'm still trying to have fun, and that's what I have here, so. Slowly getting things to heal over.

Posted by: gerbilfromhell Apr 22 2004, 12:05 AM

Well, as I seem to hardly be around anymore (as in besides lurking), I should probably make an official 'I'm leaving' post. My leaving has little to nothing to do with the forum itself; only because RL caught up with me sometime this year (though I made it work damn hard to catch me!), and I've gotten caught up in it. I'm more glad than I can say to have met all of you, to be a part of this forum, and even more glad that I still talk to quite a few of you outside of it. You've all been (and are) great friends, and thank you so much for a truly amazing year here on these forums. You're all great people and I'm glad to have known you.

Posted by: Sir Maxerpopple Apr 22 2004, 12:53 AM

Miss you gerbil.

I shall be away for two days, the states forensics student congress tournament. Just finished packing, hopefully I'll come back with something along the lines of a plaque or a gavel. smile.gif

Posted by: gothictheysay Apr 22 2004, 01:30 AM

never coming back, gerbil? sad.gif I'll miss you lots...

Have fun Max...we won't let you back in if you don't come back with a plaque tongue.gif Don't stay away one more day than necessary, ya hear?

Back, and yes I do have a plaque to be let back in, broke to the semi-final round, yay for me. It looks like I missed some fun with "Spawn", oh well.

Posted by: Patient #212 Apr 25 2004, 05:18 PM

Welcome back and congratulations, Max! We won't have to kick you out after all. And, yes, you missed the "Spawn" incident. There wasn't anything really good to miss though... just stupidity.

Posted by: gothictheysay Apr 25 2004, 05:25 PM

MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAX

*pounces, hugs*

Ooh. Shiny. Max is my role model. I want a plaque like that.

Heck no, Spawn wasn't that fun, don't worry. tongue.gif

Posted by: porcelainwarrior Apr 25 2004, 07:14 PM

*sigh* i wish we'd had this when i left, but i'm hijacking it to announce my (hopefully) permenant return, a whole lot of crap caught up with my late last year and i've been vaguely AWOL ever since. but i've realised that even if a lot of people have forgotten me i love the forums too damn much and i shall reclaim my old buddies...or else tongue.gif to be honest, it's been hard to be around since dayan died. but none of my friends IRL knew him and don't realise how much i lost when we lost him. not a day goes by that i don't think about him and i reckon most of my current deppression problems are a result of me trying to forget and change my life instead of remembering and respecting. but i'm getting all teary and poignant now so i'm gonna shut-up and just say...i'm back...and if anyone wants to say hi...please do...i feel like i'm starting all over again... unsure.gif

Posted by: Tenacious C Apr 26 2004, 08:17 PM

Heh. I got an email from gothictheysay today. I apologize for not hanging around here much. I've been scrounging around other forums, not to say that I've forgotten about this place! Oh no. It's just that so many people know each other here and I don't know anyone really, and I thought maybe I don't fit in.

I guess I could stop in from time to time. Not often, but maybe to post and to get to know the people here a bit more.


: )

Posted by: Rattgirl Apr 26 2004, 10:05 PM

I guess you could say I've been away for a while, but since I don't think anyone really noticed, I guess I don't really see why I'm posting here....

although I'm going to be going away for a week to Milwaukee on Wednesday, so I guess I'm kinda going away again...o_O

I dunno.....I think i'm not here enough and I feel bad for not being here very often, especially since my most cuddleliscious Freaky (Enslaved) is here all the time....so um....yeah. Me. Or something. I'm here right now though, does that count? unsure.gif

Posted by: Little Green Goth Apr 29 2004, 06:05 AM

I will be going away for a while. I don't know how long. I've been going through a huge bout of depression. It doesn't help that I feel unwanted here. All my threads die. But perhaps I shouldn't take it so personaly. Which is why I'll be leaving for a while. I'll miss you all.

Posted by: the lil' pie fairy Apr 29 2004, 08:02 AM

*HUG ATTACK* i love you!! don't feel bad sad.gif i'll miss you unsure.gif

Posted by: syuu Apr 29 2004, 09:27 PM

Sorry 'bout this, especially since it'll probably seem a little asw-like -

Yeah, I haven't been on/posting much since December or so, and I don't know how long that'll go on for. But. I do love each and every one of you like a real, close-knit family and I'm well aware of how many amazing, selfless people are on these boards. So, if I don't pop up for a while, just know syuukake appreciates everyone that helped her out - 'specially Mata, who, I'm sure hears this a ton. wink.gif Never loses its sentiment, tho'.

So yep, that was my rambly way of saying I love you all very much, I'll respond to PMs if you see fit to poke at me some, and we'll see how shtuff plays out.

And, hi Porce. *wavewave* yeah, my little matazone hiatus is for the same reason. Dayan's in my thoughts every single hour, and .. losing him was like ripping a chunk out of a lot of people that will never come back. anyway, wanted you to know I still think of you, too. hope you're holding up well.

Posted by: TigerLily013 Apr 29 2004, 11:09 PM

Well with a lot of people leaving and everything begin all sad and stuff, I might as well return, but this time as a shadow on here. I will be changing my sigtag and my avatar soon so my posts won't seem as depressing or non existant soon.

I know I came early, but it still was an interesting month. To those who gave a damn about my lack of posting, much oblidged and thanks smile.gif There probably will not be many of you...

This month really let me figure out lots of things about myself, and others. Finally came to accepting terms with a girl named Pennee whom I have b*tched about before, and also thought about myself and who I am a lot.

The realization goes around here that I feel the same way of being alone as I do at school to the obvious extent. Yet, I still come back here because I will say I am addicted to the people here, whether they give a damn or not. I will probably still feel these things for a while since a lot of people whom I was close to seemed to of slipped away to another clique(s) on here, or drifted away.

Well I went on enough. Overall: new av and tag soon with title, pretty much back and still in thought.

Posted by: candice May 4 2004, 08:41 PM

I'm gonna be pretty much gone for around 3 weeks as I try desperately to catch up in the schoolwork I've been putting off all term. dry.gif I have a very detailed schedule now though...of what I need to get done each day...so I should be fine. This happens every term. I never learn my lesson. rolleyes.gif

i won't be here for a while now. i'm on study leave, and i don't get to use the net more than once in a blue moon at home. with the lovely weather we're getting i don't feel like going to college just for the net, so i'll be back after the 14th june.

feel free to email me if need be, or just send happy thoughts to me via the obvious network of intercontinental-telepatheticness we obviously have ph34r.gif

much love, and pie!!

well, i guess i should do this now while im thinking about it.


as a few of you know, i am moving cross country from toledo, ohio to san jose, california. so, as of june 11th i will officially be gone from the forums for a unknown period of time. its really hard to say goodbye to you all. but, with life we must make sacrafices, i had hope that this wasnt going to be one of them. growing up really does suck doesnt it.... i will miss the lot of you especially, those of you i became real close with. you guys will be in my heart and thoughts.

much love and happiness to you all.

Bah! dry.gif "Life" is catching up with me at the moment. My computer collapsed yesterday and I don't have access at home. I am currently using another one at work but I need to be careful. Just thought I'd say, for those that care, I probably won't be around much.......not that I usually am come to think of it! rolleyes.gif

Take care all smile.gif

I'm back! I hit a gigantic scary patch of life (a stalker, sold our house, moved, depression, deaths, and graduation) but everything's going better now, so I should be posting more.... as though you care biggrin.gif

Posted by: Silver Star Angel of Da Towers Jun 14 2004, 09:02 PM

I'm not going to be on the forums for a bit, maybe not until next week. I have all the end of the year senior activities, and I have a HUGE test on Friday that I need to study for.
Happy birthday to anyone who's birthdays I'll miss, and much luvs to all as I graduate from middle school!

Posted by: gothictheysay Jun 23 2004, 12:52 AM

Well, I couldn't say that I was going to be gone, but after a little visit to the hospital I'm back! I hit a bad low and self-injured, but I'm OK now. I'm going back to a partial therapy program, but I'm out of the mental ward now. The first thing I did is request McDonald's and then I popped the Radiohead back into my ears. rolleyes.gif

Posted by: Sir_Psycho_Sexy Jun 28 2004, 08:18 PM

Well...I know its a little premature, and I know I will be on tomorrow but I want attention tongue.gif so as of Wednesday I'll be in America (San Jose for the most part) for about 2 and a half weeks, which means I'll be having a fantastic time with a certain American (hopefully) but I won't be able to bother the forums for a little bit

Posted by: Tarantio Jun 30 2004, 01:56 AM

well, its the last night of Tara for many, since my compy is moving away with the rest of the family. Im on IRC til about six, for all u lot specially, and I'll be on Yahoo voice chat too. Make the most of me before I have to leave for too long! I'll miss u all horribly!

Posted by: TigerLily013 Jun 30 2004, 05:19 AM

I'll be taking a leave for a while. I am not sure whether it be permanent or not. If you want the reason why msg me on any messenger you have and I'll let ya know.

Posted by: Sir Maxerpopple Jun 30 2004, 12:44 PM

This will be my last day on the forums for about a month seeing as I will be doing a community service project in Belize. I don't intend on using a computer there, so I'll speak to you in a month or so.

Posted by: Aria Jul 1 2004, 03:53 AM

I'm going to be away for about 2 months, due to work. If I'm lucky, I'll be able to pop in once or twice. Hope everyone has a good summer. smile.gif

Posted by: Queenie Jul 1 2004, 01:24 PM

As of tomorrow... was meant to be today but hey, circumstances considered its tomorrow i won't be on matazone till the end of september. This is because i'm moving out of halls at uni and moving into my new house which at present doesn't have the internet and will probably continue to not have the internet through out the next academic year - costs etc... - so i'll only be able to use the internet during term times.
So yea... Hope everyone has a good summer and hopefully everyone will remember me when i come back in september wink.gif

I'm sure WeeJ, Pixiegoth, Cath and Franken-Sarah will keep me in date with the goings on. Can someone keep in touch with me about the Meet tho and about what is sorted etc... really want to go!! laugh.gif

Posted by: MistressAlti Jul 7 2004, 12:39 AM

My computer's ethernet card was fried in a severe thunderstorm last night, so it's in for repairs. The same thunderstorm also fried our DSL modem and our router, as well as various household items such as the VCR, DVD player, landline telephone, and microwave. So. As I have been magically transported back to the dark ages, and my family doesn't have the money to replace everything all at once, I won't be around hardly at all for quite some time. Sorry all.

Posted by: gothictheysay Jul 7 2004, 12:41 AM

sad.gif That's awful, Missy. We had a severe thunderstorm last night too - thankfully it didn't fry anything, but it was booming and pouring pretty loudly...we both live in the Midwest so it could be the same one, heh.

People keep leaving and no one's coming back sad.gif

Posted by: artist.unknown Jul 7 2004, 08:36 PM

the only computer I have with me (my evil friend the laptop is in the northlands, far away, and out of my reach) died yesterday after a long fight against cancer (ie, a virus one of my sister's ass wanking friends got onto out computer). the blue screen of DOOM has replaced all other functions. anyway, until I can abuse the computer back to life (kick and fix!) or get it repaired, there's only the free internet access of the local library, conveniently located across two major highways and a couple large bridges. Mr Bike will not venture across them (I do have SOME sense of self-preservation and proportion), so I am stuck. anyway, I'm off for a bit, minus maybe spotty visits (hitchhiking, yay!). cheers and cheese.

Posted by: Silver Star Angel of Da Towers Jul 19 2004, 10:41 PM

I'm a day early, but I'll post while I remember. On Wednesday I'm leaving for Florida (Disney World! YAY!), for a week and a half, then I'm off to Baltimore for Otakon!!!!! I will post about the vacation, and fill yall in on any juicy tidbits I might come across. Maybe I'll run into a computer along the way, with internet service (that I can actually afford), and fill yall in from there. Much luvs!

Posted by: CommieBastard Jul 20 2004, 09:55 PM

Okay, kind of forgot to tell you guys. You may have noticed the recent lack of Commie-brand awesomeness around here. That's because I'm in Canada, where my Internet access is patchy. I'll be here until August 13th, and instances of my presence will be highly infrequent.

Have fun without me, insofar as it's possible.

Posted by: Prince Aries Jul 23 2004, 08:13 PM

/me goes on the Commie Patch

Must.....feed....addiction....*quiver quiver*

Anyway, here's my turn to throw my name into the "being away for a while" pile. I'm moving tomorrow. Yes, again. But anyone who knows me knows of the absolute horrors I've been through in the past year with moving. Makes for Inconsistent Forum Aries and that makes me Sad Panda.

Moving forward, I am trying to get internet hooked up at the new shack ASAP, because I'm just starting to come back here, and boy do I miss it here. And everyone here. Plus..there's also Final Fantasy XI to consider. My Taru grows increasingly lonely.

So here's hoping I return soon. Cheers, mates. Miss me!

Posted by: Kitty Jul 27 2004, 04:02 AM

I was in Canada for four days.... And drove from Toronto (sp?) to D.C. in a day.... torture torture torture. I just.... bleh. I cant take it. I'm tired and I hate vacationing, its such torture to my poor brain. My entire thought process turnes to boxed, processed, fake egg beater crap, and by the end it has made its way to the frying pan with fake butter to be fried to death.

.... I feel so metaphoric....

I feel like I need sleep.
G'night all

Posted by: moop Jul 27 2004, 06:13 PM

I got a job in Edinburgh (so about 300 miles from where I am right now) and I'm moving up there in a few days. If anyone misses the random wall based duct-taping episodes then worry not, I will get an internet connection installed eventually. Hopefully it won't take too long for me to install broadband, if I'm not online for more than a few weeks then beware - I may have been driven insane by the lack of teh interweb.

Posted by: Sir_Psycho_Sexy Jul 27 2004, 07:29 PM

off again, only to the peak district this time, doing some sort of work on a stall for a friend of my dad's, she's cool (likes mata's animations), it's some sort of biker bash, not sure what its called but that usually involves scantily cald ladies gyrating in one way or another....or more biggrin.gif

anywho, see you f@ckers on sunday/monday biggrin.gif

Posted by: Sir Maxerpopple Jul 29 2004, 12:47 PM

Returned again, home once more, only to be gone in a week again for Europe for 12 days! I intend to make the most of my stay and catch up on all.

Posted by: gothictheysay Jul 29 2004, 11:45 PM

Posted by: Silver Star Angel of Da Towers Aug 2 2004, 03:46 PM

I'm baaaaaaaack!! Nothing that interesting happened. I got a guy's autograph that I barely even knew... which was kind of funny. But Otakon was really fun, and I want to go back next year. I hope I didn't miss anything here while I was gone.

Posted by: Aislinn Faye Aug 3 2004, 05:19 AM

Okay.. I've been away for a while.. and I'm gonna be gone a little bit longer.. I'm living with my cousin now, and she doesn't have a working computer, so when school starts I'll be on a bit more.. so .. yeah.. I'm gonna be away for a while, but I'll come on whenever I can.. I miss you all. sad.gif I'll be asking my dad for a computer for x-mas.

Posted by: Sir Maxerpopple Aug 4 2004, 10:19 PM

I'll be leaving again for ten days or so, will be in Switzerland (mmmm, the Swiss, the other white race) and France.

Posted by: Polocrunch Aug 4 2004, 10:26 PM

I'll be leaving for Vietnam shortly (read: Friday morning). I don't think Vietnam is so backwards as to be completely lacking Internet services, so I should be able to pop in from time to time. Most likely I'll only be on once a week or less, or whenever I'm in big cities like Hanoi and Saigon/Ho Chi Minh.

Updates on my progress will probably appear in my LJ, for anyone interested. If any Americans are particularly sensitive to, say, hearing about the amazing successes of those bastard Commies, then do say and I'll omit them from any reports. tongue.gif

Until later (when there'll be gratuitous references to 'Nam and killin' and gooks), I bid you farewell!

Posted by: gothictheysay Aug 4 2004, 10:30 PM

I'm semi-back now - got a dialup account but it probably costs lots so I'm not online that much. Theres a web cafe nearby though and I'm getting broadband sorted as soon as I can.

Posted by: Aislinn Faye Sep 1 2004, 06:18 PM

OMG!! I'm back you guys... I didn't think the school computer would let me come on here.. but it did, and plus I have senior study hall, and I don't have a car, so I use the teacher's computer, since we don't have our computer IDs yet... and I'm just super happy happy happy, so I'm doing run on sentences and what not. So yeah anyway, I won't be on as much, but I'll be active again. woo hoo biggrin.gif

Posted by: the lil' pie fairy Sep 9 2004, 08:16 AM

morning everyone. won't be on here much for a while, as my rents have thrown me out for the time being, and internet access is somewhat sporadic. (what IS this fast reply thing gonna do?!) anywho, will miss you all, and be back properly soon, i hope.

Hi there! Just to say that I don't post much these days as real life has kinda taken over and I wasn't 100% happy with the board as it was when I left a few months ago. Apologies to those that cared about me for not saying tara. Life has been quite hectic recently so I'm sure you'll understand. For those that know me and want to stay in touch it's best to email me as I don't visit here much. Hope you're all OK?

I'm going back to Nottingham this evening and I start back at uni next Monday so I might not be around much, it depends if the drivers pab found me for my modem work or not tongue.gif
Also my bedroom is being decorated so it may not be possible for me to have my computer connected for a week or so, depends on what's happening really!
I'm going to try and cut down when uni starts again because I really need to get my head down and get on with it else I'll be screwed.
I'll miss you guys, although knowing me I'll probably be back tomorrow and this will have been a waste of your time.

I much prefer it here, in my cosy cave... er, bedroom... Maybe on, again, Sunday, before I go... (Right. like most of you care... dry.gif ).

it'll be fun.

Posted by: Raptor Red Nov 20 2004, 01:42 AM

I haven't been here for such a long time! My internet broke because my mom doesn't know how to use the computer and she destoryed it because her's is the master computer and they were all connected. I'm babysitting right now. It's not that fun.

Posted by: Ashbless Dec 7 2004, 05:07 AM

30-40 hours work per week, final exams at school, making Christmas falala, packing up and moving all my stuff, and attempting to stay sane are cutting into computer time. Also my roomate will be moving her shiny box very soon depriving me of easy internet until I upgrade my own box. So I won't be posting much at all for a next 2 weeks or maybe a month. I'll miss it probably.

Have a very merry Christmas all!

Hello everyone...

just a quick g'day, and seeing as I've been away for a while but am back to post - thought I'd say something... oh and also to apologise in advance for the excessive posts that are going to follow in the issues forum, sorry.

and as Ashbless said it so too will I:

Merry Xmas everyone... and Happy Solstice

And a belated Happy Eid and Channuka.

Posted by: Sir_Psycho_Sexy Dec 18 2004, 01:01 AM

Well, going home for Christmas tomorrow, not taking my computer with me so 'net access will be fairly limited til sometime in January, have a good one, if you REALLY miss me...e-mail me tongue.gif

Posted by: Misty Rain Dec 19 2004, 08:42 PM

just thought, all the time there are threads from people saying they'll be away for a while, or they can't get online, or they're just downright leaving because of RL. so, i guessed a thread where people can just announce it might save mata's space, which is always a good thing.

Soon I will be away for a short while.
The house sitter will be here.
Is that interesting to anyone?

You seem a little negative about this thread so I just wanted to point out that here at matazone most of us feel like family. It's always nice to know if a member is going missing for awhile so we don't have to worry and that's why this thread is here.

Many people have pointed out that these boards are not like other boards, and I think this is one of the many reasons why.

Posted by: kisah Dec 23 2004, 07:22 PM

Does anyone really worry if a body does not post for a few days?
Is "negative" used in some derogatory sense? I merely queried some thing I was curious about. Would anybody have missed me over this Xmas?

Six of us are renting a partly haunted end of a mansion on the south coast of Cornwall in February 2005.
It would not be something I would tell strangers normally but is it interesting to any of you?

One reason for not giving exact details of my/our absence is something I read recently, "The internet is about as secure as skywriting."
Why tell the world that you are away for a few days?

Well if you're going to be gone for a couple of days it's not much of a worry unless you really want people to know that you're not going to be here so they don't worry.

This thread is more for those who are going to be gone for extended periods of time to keep us from worrying. We have suffered a loss on these boards of a member over a year ago and when we didn't know where he was it was excruitiating waiting to hear what happened to him and this is a way to keep that from happening to someone who may not end up being someone we've lost.

I said negative because the tone I thought I was getting from your posts seemed to be that of a person who found this thread to be stupid and a bad idea. If that was not your intent I'm sorry, but it is hard to get people's tone simply out of text, and that could have been my mistake.

If you feel more comfortable not letting us know when you're going to be gone, that is up to you. It is not a requirement to let us know you'll be gone, just a nice thing to do for those who care.

Yes OK.

"no. You aren't in love, and you never have been. Everything you believed in is false, seeing as you are too young to have any of your beliefs matter. You can't argue, because everybody else believes the same as me, and if you get upset, you have to get over it, or you will be warned."

If you're referring to Jonman (the furriest of mammals *I* know) He's in France until this coming saturday.

Incidentally, I am not. Let this serve as my '"I'm back from the States" post. =)

I just wanted to say that I'll be here, but I won't for the next semester of school. I'm taking a class on Flash, one on Web Design, and a Philosophy class, all while continuing to work full time. The first two classes are web based and would suck up a lot of my time even if I was taking them on campus, but now will suck up even more of my time because I'm essentially teaching myself with just a guide on how to do this. So basically I'll be here when I need a mental break from school or on the offchance that I actually get a few moments of spare time.

The first week of school has already passed and I've already cut down my online time to a huge degree, so once the real stuff hits I don't know how much I'll be here.

I might be a little sparse around here for a while--my dearest mother has just made it clear that you are all paediphiles and such, so I probably won't be on in the daylight much. *wipes a sniffly tear*

HOWEVER, my school has not yet learned of the joy that is Matazone, so I'll sneak on when I can.

So I've been gone frequently these past few months! I've entered the thick of crew seasons and I've been traveling everywhere! We've done really well so far and the season is almost over -- it will be officially over after the Canadian Henley (August 2nd through the 7th).

Then hopefully I'll be able to pop in more frequently. I do say I miss the forums!

I will likely be away for a while too. Chris moved in, so we're trying to merge 2 households which means tons of sorting, throwing away, and rearranging. That, plus trying to get some of the plans for the wedding sorted, doesn't lead to much free time. Have fun guys!

I've decided that I'm going to be gone for a long while. Using the keyboard too much is weakening my fingers and I want to spend more time on music than the computer. Bye.

Edit: You know what? This is just too hard, Sunday is my day off.

Edit again: Well, it's the holidays, I guess I could have half term off. And perhaps a little bit of the school term too, just to help me get into the rhythm of things again. Or, a better plan, I could just get rid of the regime and return to my beautiful computer and spend less time doing homework to do music instead.

Expect a scarcer Elphaba around these parts--mother removed the computer because I procrastinated putting it in a more public spot. Thank God for school computers and my last minute emailing of my novel to myself. However, I have loads of work to do and only one 40-minute space of time a day to allot computer use to, and novel > forums with regard to current obsessions.

(I wish I had thought to email my report card to myself as well sad.gif as this newly-downloaded one has too many blank spaces)

Yea I don't rememeber the last time I was on here, ran across this on accident, as my site is down and the search page showed my profile on here, and I was like "Hey I haven't been there in ages." Anyway, yea I'm back, but I'm always flying around or sleeping and blowing off homework, so I'm not sure how much I'll be on here. I'll give an update, since like I said I don't remember the last time I was on here, but basically I'm a junior at Columbia College Chicago for film and video cocentrating in editing, I've been living in the city since January of 06. Other than that I have moved a number of times few in the dorms and then to three different apartments, one was my first one had a lot of problems with my unit (long story) and rent was high, my second one was great until someone broke in and stole a bunch of my shit, and my third and current one is actually the nicest apartment I've had and hopefully I will stay here the rest of the time I'm in Chicago. I made the random decision last winter that I wanted to travel whether people came with me or not, so I made my first trip alone to NYC for a day (I can make a post that is more in depth about my travel adventures), then in March made a second trip to NYC alone, and then in August went for a third time with my parents, we also went to Washington, D.C., I'm going to Springfield, IL in December (lived in Illinois my whole life I haven't even been to the state capital), and another trip to NYC in January. Other than that I just got a new Canon XTI replacing my Canon K2 which was stolen in the break in. Sorry for the long post I may actually elaborate more on a few things in another post.

On wednesday I'm moving back up to Norwich. Properly leaving home this time, not just studenting. Paying my own rent and being totally independent from my parents and all those other things that growing up means. I'll be without a computer until Saturday and I don't know when I'll get internet after that - hopefully straight away, but I'm not sure.

I realise that less than a week is not exactly "being away for a while" and the only place that might notice my absence is the Media forum, but moving house is a Big Thing, so I felt it proper to post.

Posted by: Daria Nov 20 2007, 03:36 PM

Good luck! : )

And don't forget you have to have space for something to use on No Stairs Day next year.

Posted by: Ashbless Dec 1 2007, 04:05 AM

I'm moving and have been less than organized. This means the computer doesn't have internet until I track down the company providing it and work on getting it set up. Easily a week but maybe longer.
I never like moving and yet I seem to put everything I own into cardboard boxes on a fairly regular basis. At least this move I'm staying in the same city.
Everything back in the car. Sigh.

I'm gonna be off the nets until I get my grades together.

My mom blames internet, I blame skipping school and playing guitar all day. Obviously I'm not going to tell her that, so see you guys.

Posted by: snoo Mar 9 2008, 11:47 AM

My internet at home has decided that Matazone doesn't exist anymore and try as I might I can't get on to the forums/trouble down pit/stick scene or anything so basically until it decides that it does actually exist I won't be around much sad.gif

Posted by: Calantyr Mar 26 2008, 04:27 PM

No real excuse, I've just been rubbish. Lalala.

Living by myself and having far too many projects to work on means there's not much time to forum surf these days. But I'm going to try and drop by more regular.

I'm sure that brightened your day. smile.gif

I disapeared for a while, month or two. But being a newer member I can disapear without anyone realising. ph34r.gif

Posted by: snoo Apr 22 2008, 06:26 PM

Just an update.
My internet on the whole is balls. I have discovered that my housemate is a moron and gets our internet from AOL and it basically hates me. Since Thursday it has not stayed connected for more than about 2 minutes and so in my desperation I have ended up in the library.
It is making Mr Flibble very cross.
I don't see why I should give him 5 a month towards internet that is pretty much unusable but he doesn't see it that way and apparently my other housemates don't have a problem with it. Even when I can use it there is still no indication of it accepting that Matazone exists, except maybe in a parallel dimension.

Get your own internets, and laugh in their faces. IN THEIR FACES.

Posted by: Industrial Kybosh May 14 2008, 03:19 PM

I'll be offski for a while after tomorrow. I've got a whole eleven days off for my birthday, and whilst that's lovely for my continued sanity (as any time away from work is) it does mean that my main source of internet will no longer be within my grasp.

I'll be back though. You can count on it. I do, however, expect a thread to be made in my honour, just like the old days... wink.gif

Posted by: Edward_lover1200 May 16 2008, 12:06 AM

*stumbles in and falls on my face* *looks up wide eyed* wait...does it count if you HAVE been away for a long time? like a really long time...lol I dont know who remembers me and who doesn't ...but it's been a few years since i've posted...I've had a lot of drama and stuff...
But i'm back! woot! *bounces* so..anyone miss me? or remember me...lol
Love

I do! Welcome back. /me hugs

Also, InKy, how about a poll in your honor? Hmm-mm.

Posted by: Eli May 19 2008, 11:09 PM

I guess I was supposed to write in here or something. Well I'm back from new york anyways, so yea ...

Posted by: leopold May 23 2008, 01:01 PM

Yeah, so I was away for a long time. And then I came back, like the prodigal son, and all was well.

It's been fun catching up with you guys, but now it's time for me to slink off again. I've got too many demands on my time to keep coming here as a regular, I'm already feeling like I'm shirking and it's just not good. So I'm afraid to say it's time to bid you all adieu.

I'm not saying I'll never be back. I dare say I'll pop in from time to time, but I'm not going to be a regular like I used to be, it's just not an option any more.

I've updated my email addy so if anyone wants to keep in contact they should be able to.

And in my absence, please keep banning Rihanna! biggrin.gif

Hope you all have a great life and I'll catch you again sometime.

- Leo

Posted by: syuu May 24 2008, 09:27 AM

I'll miss you lots, Leo, this time you've been back made this place feel like ooold times again. Well, old and new mixed, which is thus far the best Matazone concoction.

Hope to catch ya on the flip side, and even if I don't? I'll still take every opportunity to bring you up in all Matazone-related discussions, as you rightly deserve. tongue.gif

Posted by: Spussy Cat May 24 2008, 11:38 AM

Quitter!

Nah, was nice to see you around again...even if we didn't really interact. tongue.gif

Posted by: Industrial Kybosh May 27 2008, 02:16 PM

Aw hell, and I was just getting used to having my old nemesis around.

I suppose a little bit of leo is better than no leo at all. Make those visits count, my boy!

Posted by: leopold May 29 2008, 12:05 PM

I've made an executive decision. I just can't leave Syuu and Inky out in the cold like that, and I've not interacted with P@ yet either (sorry mate, I only just worked out who you are, what with your name changing antics)

I'll be visiting irregularly, depending on workload. If you see me, feel free to say hi. Or studiously ignore me. Either will be fine...

Hey hey,
this is a little late, but, after I got wireless internet (about three hours after), my computer died. Actually, I'm pretty sure its XP died. I'm supposed to get a new computer in August-ish, so I'll be actually back by then hopefully. What I'm on is a virus filled laptop that very rarely loads certain pages, one of which is Matazone - soo, I'm glad it loaded this time!

Anyway, I have AIM if you need to bother me when I am on this stone aged piessa. My sn is sixtaiis, instead of aiicei which is what I think is on my profile. See you when I see you!

Erm... a retrospective post okay

Damn, been off and away in fairy land for a few months it seems, neglecting regular posting and generally allowing being knackered after work to ruin a perfectly good natter. Anyway, back now !!! YAY!

Posted by: Aislinn Faye Sep 8 2008, 05:32 AM

Wow... I know I should have posted that I'd be away...but I'm just posting letting everyone know that I'm back! ^.^

Very long hiatus from this place with many stories to tell and people I've met and so fourth. Thought I'd like to say I'm back to see what's going on here smile.gif Can I get a hug from anyone who remembers me? lol.

Not bad, can't complain. Up's and down's like everyone else, but never forgotten this place lol. Just trying to get back into the swing of things here and so on.

Smiler: I am well and my travels have not been much physically, but I think in other aspects it's been quite a bit of "travelling" ;D I actually went to see the Niagra Falls recently and that's the closest I ever been to being outside of Ontario there. Other than that, been here doing my usual.

Posted by: patback87 Sep 26 2008, 06:16 AM

I took a full load of classes this summer and now I'm taking more than a full load of class, but I will be done in December. Also been enjoying the 21 year old life (I know most people in the world don't have to wait that long to legally drink).

Very few people answer in the 'many journeys, one life, travel near and far' line, very few, nicely done, especially seeing as I meant to type 'fair your' on my original post and it may have thrown a less-wise poster....

I've been gone for a long time. Then I stopped in to say hello, and now I'm back off again for another six months or so.... but I'm sure you haven't seen the last of me.

It might not be as epicly done as how you word it, but I honestly believe I've learned a lot and gained some new perspectives on stuff and got past some old demons weighing me down, so it's all well deserved in the end.

And don't worry about the ramblings, I do it all the time when I can't come up with the right description or word to express something wink.gif Rambling FTW!

Also: welcome back MistressAlti.

I finally found a flat and I'm moving in on Saturday. I don't plan on being without the internet for long but you know how these things can be...

Hi All,
I am just checking in, wanted to let you all know I am living in New Orleans now, I'm in college/uni or whatever you want to call it, I'm doing great. I have a nice boyfriend, I just showed him the site and he LOVES it, especially Mr. Snaffleburger which has always been my favorite.
Thanks Mata and all the members who I have connected with and have shown me some love.
-Crazi

Posted by: leopold Nov 25 2008, 10:18 AM

Hi Crazi, good to hear you're doing so well.

Makes me realise how much time flies though, you were 13 when you joined here, and now you're all grown up and at college... now I feel old sad.gif

Posted by: Industrial Kybosh Dec 1 2008, 11:49 AM

Ditto that, leo. I remember crazi as a duct tape clad early teen. It takes a lot of mental wrangling to picture her older and wiser (well, older...), but I can't help imagine that there's still duct tape.

Good to see you again Jecca. wink.gif

On holiday from 19th Jan (tomorrow! EEEEE!), til 3rd Feb. I won't bore you all with the details of the 4 star, all inclusive beach resort in the Caribbean where I'll be staying for 2 weeks, suffice to say, it'll be hell.
