No one missed me?

Postby keatonatron » Wed 12.27.2006 3:24 am

I guess I forgot to mention that I'm going on vacation to the US. I stopped by San Fransisco for a while then headed back up to the Seattle area. I'll be returning to Japan on Friday.

I just realized that I never said anything and simply stopped checking the forums, due to my lack of internet, and figured someone might be worried.

Of course I log in today to find the forums chugging along just fine without me and no word of concern over my absence. :@

*laugh* Didn't notice you were gone.

Welcome back

No one noticed when I hadn:t used the boards for 2 months prior to the JLPT, either.

I missed both of you. When someone is away for awhile I usually figure they've been busy in *real life*. ;) I would have mentioned your absences but I'm never sure if it's proper protocol to talk about other members. (Mukade has been away for awhile as well.)

pshaw... i daresay that some of us notice but don't consider it noteworthy. i'm on a University schedule, so around exam times i expect people to be busy and disappear for a while, then be gone for the holidays... and somehow, Harisenbon's wedding pictures are still fresh in my mind, i figure you're still on your honeymoon! :)

i'm in the middle of moving a whole datacenter to a new location, imagine a room the size of a basketball court jam-packed with servers and routers and robot-tape-thingies that has to be moved a mile down the road with no interruption of service... :( it will probably be a month or two before i have the energy to resume my studies and work towards that elusive 1000 post count. :)

Keat-san, I was wondering what took you so long to hit 3K posts ;)

I must be tired. At first glance, I read that as "moving a whole decanter" and thought, "How hard can that be? Hell, just drink it where you are."

I have noticed it's been a little slow here, but it's also been slow on several of the mailing lists I'm on. (IRLP, EchoIRLP, LCDProc...) I suspect this is due to the holidays, with people traveling, or preparing for family... This seems to be affecting the things that people are doing for personal gain/enjoyment, as the internal forum and mailing lists at work have been just as busy as usual.

I did notice you hadn't logged in in some time. I was missing your (sometimes a bit perverted) sense of humor.

If no one is concerned about my absence, why should anyone be concerned about yours :) (joke)

Anyway, お帰りなさい, may you continue to fill the forums with laughter, wisdom and randomness.

:o

It seems as though many people have been gone lately. Is it just me?
Finally!

Actually, I'm more surprised when Mukade DOES make an appearance rather than when he disappears. ;)

You just made the deadline, one more day absent and Scotland Yard were to be commissioned to find you ;)

Good to see you back at least....

Scotland Yard could give a hoot about keatonatron. Now the kempeitai, if they still existed, would have hunted him down and beat him with bamboo for his lack of posting.

Mukade used to be very active, but not anymore. I've commented on both his and Harisenbon's absence before, but I think it was only one time and quite missable when skimming the boards after a long absence.

I'm back home now, just in time for the new year. I smuggled beef jerky passed customs, it was quite exhilarating.
