      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

(note: I began this before my march 22 entry)

 

Sorry for the delay. Life got in the way. But, now I'm AOK.

 

Life comes at you fast.

 

My counsler said that. An insurance company uses it too.

 

Sometimes it's fun, other times not so much.

 

I remember when I moved away from home, met my wife, married, moved, new job, children, house, and, and, and...

 

Good times.

 

I'm in a classroom with 13 other students learning how to help our local communities. I just clicked over to 44 years of age. Thank you. There's a kid 20, a retired fella 63, and everywhere in between. 80 hours of instruction at a pretty good clip for a guy who has been out of the public education machine for a while.

 

At work we're wrapping up a phase of a project, so punch lists are being filled and new ones generated. You're never bored and usually frustrated by someone else not being on the same page when you think they should be.

 

My kids.

 

If you have any, you're nodding your head. I love them.

 

A few years ago I stopped asking people what they "did" for a living. It always became the focus of attention and limited my definition of an individual. People are wonderful for there nooks and crannies as much as the broad strokes.

 

I didn't drink coffee until 5 years ago when I went to work for a startup coffee equipment business. Now I am an unapologetic snob. I have preferred barista/process combinations.

 

Some musicians play classical, others, punk. Few do both WELL.

 

The snow is melting, birds are singing, spring showed up on the calendar at least.

 

I'm looking forward to another season of growth and renewal.

 

I just need to make some time.
