Bye.
Don't think I'll be back. It's been fun. [Wave]

Well, it's always a shame to see someone with a normal name leave a forum.

I don't mind you asking BlackBlade, I just have too much going on my life. Something has changed, I don't quite know how to explain it, but I used to look forward to coming online and reading all the new threads. Maybe the change is me and not the forum. I don't know, but I find myself not really enjoying it anymore, no offense intended to anyone here.
I'm spending too much time on the computer, I've been slipping down the anti-social slope for quite a while now. I think it happened after my fiancee passed. My whole social life revolved around her, we had the same friends, and I moved away. Hatrack used to be a place I would stop in occasionally, not check every day. I need to get away from my computer for a while. It's not really Hatrack, it's me.

Just so everyone knows, I hold you all in the highest regard and wish you all the best. I should have provided a little more explanation, but I would hate to think some of you thinking I was hunting for attention as we've all seen in the past. Simply put, you all have had a profound impact on my life, and I hope you all enjoy your lives. [Smile]

See you later, man. We have all taken a break from time to time. I know I hae done it a few times, and once I start school I probably will taper off quite a bit again.

The best thing about Hatrack is that it will be here regardless of how often you stop in. Some of the players/posters will change, but the place is here independent of any single poster.


So I hope to see you whenever it is better for you to post again. [Smile]

Sounds like a healthy choice. [Smile]

I hope you're one of the ones who will visit again someday, but if not, that's ok too.

Go well and be well, Nick. [Smile]

Some of them actually don't. Or only visit extremely rarely. (I'm looking at YOU, Da_Goat!)

If I remember correctly, the last time he did much in the way of posting on this side was during the whole blowup during the launch of IGMS. I suppose that might have turned him off of it a little.

Yeah, it sounds like your reasons for wanting to leave are good ones.

Godspeed, gramercy, and good luck to you.

Take care, Nick. If you decide to come back you'll be welcome, of course, but it sounds like you're making a good, healthy choice right now.

Yep, I have too. Actually, if Sept. 11th hadn't happened I probably wouldn't have come back. I'd been gone long enough when it happened that I didn't feel any impulse to come here on a daily basis. When the planes struck, though, I came back to make sure that the New Yorkers here were okay. I've come and gone since then, but that's the only time that I've thought that I was gone for good.

There are clever people talking about things I care about which I can peruse at my convenience. I don't see any reason to ever completely leave.

There are periods when Hatrack and other places on the intarwebs get me feeling really down. I can't figure out why I'm down, and then I realize it's the fora and nothing else. That's usually when I decide to take a break and rock the IRL for a while.

Aww, you do care! Well, I just want to point out I've posted a whole 5 times this year! Twice this month! So I'm quite proud of myself.

Oh, and bye, Nick. Have a good one. [Smile]

Yeah... Hatrack in particular has thrown me into wild depression before. Problem is, instead of running away at those times like I should, I stick around and make it worse.

Not unless you read his post as replying to the OP, rather than to the two posts preceding it.

So what was the blowup over IGMS? I didn't know OSC ever posted this side of the board. Maybe he still does...?


I'm thinking Pelegius, Ron Lambert, MIG. You know, quality contributors.
