    Ok, who broke the forums?!? I was starting to get really twitchy there for a bit. I found the convo going on on FB, but discovered that I am not a member of that group; all I could do was watch through the windows and paw at the door, hoping someone would notice me. Nobody did. It was COLD outside last night, you guys. Good luck!

    One more day at my current job and then I start at the new location on Sunday. I feel both anticipation and apprehension.

    It occurred to me as I was about to sleep... "Don't read the comments" does not apply to us. Other places/people talking on a company page about a broken feature on their website would be full of rage and insults. Not us. 284 comments, and we're just chatty. I love each and every one of you so much.

    There were comments? Was this on the Kickstarter? In minor news, I appear to have ruined some spider's day yesterday afternoon. I suspect it was curled up in my right coat sleeve and had to make an escape when I pulled the coat on. By the time I got back from my errand I had two tiny itchy blisters about a centimeter apart on my right wrist, and this morning they are angry, hard little yellow itchy bump clusters with a bit of warm bruisiness around them. The comments were on Ary's post to Reapers Facebook page asking if the forums were down for everyone or if the issue was on her end. 300+ comments on a single post, it became the temporary replacement randomness thread, Bryan even commented to let us know they were aware of the issue and working on it.

    My first evening of freedom (wasn't done until after four, so not like it was an whole afternoon) found me: Vacuuming the leaves (got 1/2 the backyard done) Hitting Costco for Halloween treats, things to BBQ tomorrow for board games, and bacholer survival food Watching 3 YouTube videos of my own volition Continuing to unpack the paint area And... playing some baldurs gate. Probably should have been lane and just went to bed at 11. But it's my first weekend of freedom. (I dont have 15 million tasks that should be done, but don't have the time to do them, hanging over my head. It hasn't really hit me yet, I still feel like I'm 'getting away with something' because I'm spending time doing chores and other productive stuff that isn't the pile of work that was ever re-generating for the last 3ish years. It was like it seriously had a ring of regeneration. I just want to keep being productive at least at some level and not get sucked into the quagmire of not getting anything done even if I do have full weekends to myself every weekend. I feel like I took them for granted in the past) Of course, stuff had to blow up and force my husband to move up his trip to Spain from December to hours before I finished. Well I'll just have to show how much I've appreciated all he has done for me by doing all the chores he was forced to take on 100% while I was busy.

    Gotta say, though, the impromptu facebook randomness thread was kinda fun. But I am quite glad the forums are back! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    Ahh... Kickstarter would explain it. As a non-backer (only cause I didn't know) I had no access to that. I looked on SpaceBook and found nothing. Couldn't find any active Hangouts from previous links. I had a sad. And then I imagined it from Bryan's perspective... 92 hour week, sort of a couple days off. Getting ready for the weekend and BAM! SQL corruption... So much sympathy for that. So much... For me that would mean calling across campus to the cold room where my servers live and coordinating a restore from backup while diving into server logs. If I lost a few edits, no big deal. I do not have rampant animals tromping through a forum on my server. I was very surprised that a lot of content was not lost. Heck, even the post I was editing at 2:29 pm was actually edited prior to the server crashing fully and it looks like no data was lost. Color me impressed! How do we send bacon to Bryan and the web team?!?

    Am now awake. For a certain value of awake. Now to get moving and drive to NH to help my folks clear some stuff from the attic. I know I'll be coming home with at least a camp cot and my great grand fathers bible boxes. I'll have to see what else we can find.

    Was going to post this earlier, but the forums went down right as I tried. Thanks, we do too! :) *sends hugs and warm brownies* I knooooow, those awful little thoughts are so mean! I'm glad you're getting better at acknowledging them as the lies that they are. You are such an awesome arty bright spark of joy, and your lovely talents are loved and wanted and appreciated! I've never been very good at listening when people tell me not to do things, but I'll try not to cheerlead too much. I'll just simply state that I miss you and I wish that we didn't have some things in common and I absolutely adore you in every way. You were exactly the amazing ray of light in person that I always envisioned you to be, so just remember that shadows come and go but I assure you that every single person that knows you on this forum, whether they've gotten to meet you in person or not, absolutely sees that light. There are so many things about you that are special and amazing and I hope that one day it's as simple as blinking for you to send those bad brain thoughts away. <3 Also everything Guindy said. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    I suspect that enough of us either are directly involved in, or live with someone who does, computer type work; we know it takes as long as it takes. And in the meantime, we have the means to communicate, so .. we do. About everything and nothing, all at once. ^^

    Good luck!I'll take the blame. As most likely it was this thread that broke it if anything did (unless something was happening with the bees that I can't see... nor want to...), but I know I was editing at 2:29 pm (which was successful by the way) and I haven't seen any evidence of activity later than that in this sub-set of the forums, so ergo, it was me. The flogging shall commence at high noon. I'll wear my boots and bring some leather to chew on. I thought the official scapegoblin did it. He had been absent from the random thread for weeks but he popped in yesterday morning and it crashed that very afternoon...

    1) you continued to type notes, so yay victory! 2) one of the allegories I use is this: in depression the brain becomes like driving on an old country road, with deep deep wheel ruts. Those ruts guide you wheels and make steering in any other direction difficult. But that's what needs to be done, grabbing the wheel and trying to go a different direction then those wheel ruts are taking you. 3) do you really think the world has enough minis? I don't, so please sculpt some more.

    I just figured since we can chatter and we tend to go off topic anyways we just wound up applying that to the FB post...

    Huzzah! They return! I was getting kinda bored. Also, Fritz Postal since return! Edit: back in September I bought what could probably be called GW's learn to paint kit. It's a kit that comes with 3 snap-fit space marines, 8 little teeny tiny pots of paint, and a brush. While the forums were down, I was going to try painting one up using the not-quite directions that they include on a lift flap on the box. Except that the paints fell victim to the curse of paint pots. Or at least the primer did. The blue base coat was still good, but I didn't check the others. But man, that primer was about a solid plastic plug with a puddle of water on it. There was no way to save it. I'm worried that the others will have fallen victim to the same, since they're such small amounts and everything, but at the same time I don't want to open them in case they haven't, because that would just speed it up by exposing them to air.

    Have you met us? We have a thread dedicated to the crap we just bought, and a whole forum for enabling each other to help launch more things through Kickstarter. There may be such a thing as "enough", or "plenty", but we surely have not found it yet. look, I have 'plenty' of figures, just not 'enough' Any game/sport/activity called 'curdling' definitely sounds very gobliny. We may have to play it next Reapercon (less than 12 months now guys!!!)

    So at lunch today my lovely Bride decided she wanted to rearrange the house (read as ME rearrange the house). It's my fault mostly. I asked her if she wanted to do the prep work on her Mousling heroes or if she wanted me to do the mold lines and cleaning. She has determined that she wants to learn how to do the prep work, but doesn't like sitting at the desk in the Den where all our hobby tables are. For now, it appears I get to do the following: 1) Move her hobby desk into the living room. 2) Setup her computer on her hobby desk, but leave it in the living room. 3) Setup her lamp and paint stuff on my old computer desk (with wheels) so she can do Hobby stuff while sitting on the couch. 4) Move the extra couch and love seat out of the living room and into the den. 5) Move the dog sleeping area from the Den to the small room between our bedroom and the den... 6) Move all of my clothes out of the small room so the dogs don't mess with them (or more likely the cats that hop the fence and then try to find something to climb). 7) Move my workbench into the living room (cause she won't do Hobby stuff unless I am in the same room doing Hobby stuff) The only real downside I see to this is that I will have to setup a push to talk or something for Google Hangouts as there will pretty much always be ambient noise moving into that room (she can always watch tv without me, just not hobby type stuff except for her coloring books when she relaxes in bed). Oh, and how much light my Daylight lamp produces on my work area... she really hasn't experienced that yet after I got it. So, yeah, busy weekend... plus all of the planned calculations for ZOMBIEFEST2016 (see previous comments or wait for the WIP).

    It looks like I'll be making them this afternoon, because timing. Really it's just cute little molds and tempered chocolate. We have little skull molds too. Have I mentioned lately that I love you? *makes puppy-otter eyes* I've never been very good at listening when people tell me not to do things, but I'll try not to cheerlead too much. I'll just simply state that I miss you and I wish that we didn't have some things in common and I absolutely adore you in every way.

    Curling... hurdles... bowling... Lissen, I guess I hope they move out or whatever but I'm stealing this and starting a Curdling League. Because if that doesn't sound like a goblin sport I don't know what could.
