I know I haven't been around for a while, but I just wanted to make a quick post stating that I am still alive and kicking. It seems as soon as my life was back in order and I could put more time and money into my hobbies, Existence decided to kick sand in my face and steal my girl, metaphorically speaking. I got in a 3 car fender bender, with my car in the middle and of course got the most damage. I was stopped in traffic and the car behind me didn't stop in time and shoved me into the big SUV in front of me at jsut the right angle to destroy my right headlight assembly and crumple stuff up in that area (the SUV only got a minor scratch on the bumper and the car behind me only got a turn signal knocked loose).
Of course, we had recently changed insurance providers and haven't had the chance yet to take the vehicle down to get the required look over for full insurance coverage...

I can sympathize with you. I was the middle car in a real cruncher on the highway where the speeds were 65+ mph--similar to yours, but we were having to break for the sudden slow down ahead. The guy behind couldn't get his very large pick-up truck to slow down in time, pushing me into the car in front. No one was seriously injured, but 1 of my passengers thought he was too cool for the seatbelt and bounced off of the front passenger seat. Had he been sitting in the middle, I believe he would have fought it out with the front windshield--we were hit that hard.
What really sucked about the whole deal was the fact that I had finished paying for the Honda CR-V just a few months before . . . and now I'm paying for a Mazda Tribute . . . but on a kinda funny note, my girlfriend's XBOX 360 was in the back when we were hit. The impact shot that consol through the back window and bounced it down the highway--the damn thing still works after 2 1/2 years, and I have had to have mine repaired twice!
Anyway, hang in there, things will turn out--just gotta be patience with Life sometimes.

Vermin King: I wouldn't hold my breath. He used to be very active on a French forum, so I asked him if he was going to be back there. no response yet

Vermin King: I sent Mauther an email. My guess is that it will be inaccessible while he is migrating things over to Blogger

wyvern: Today though, the Papermau blog is no longer accessible unless you have an invitation (and of course you can't get one unless you visit the blog, Catch 22). Anyone got any better news about it?

wyvern: I know Papermau's blog has been having problems because of virus infections lately - it's fired-up my antivirus system every time I've visited there for some weeks, though he did write and say the problem was resolved a while back (it wasn't).

Vermin King: I suppose it could have been worse. She could boost someone up in a positive uplifting supportive manner...

Vermin King: Okay ... double negatives are bad, but how about triple saying the same thing. I just heard someone on TV saying, 'I found we really boosted each other up in an uplifting supportive manner'. And that was probably meaningful to her. duh

Vermin King: Back in my younger days, I tried to get 'Trick or Drink' running. We would go door to door in costume with our Halloween-themed rocks glasses in hand.

shep: On the other hand, Halloween is not that big for kids, here in Germany, anyways. It's more an excuse for teens and young adults to dress up and have a party... and for the latter ones to get drunk beyond speaking their native tongue...

shep: "A ninja, a mage, a knight, and a fish enter a tavern..." Wait this is no joke??!? Great costumes! The kids in my neighborhood were, as always, either too shy or too lazy to climb up into the third floor (40 steps, man, 40 steps!)...
