Posted:Every now and then I've taken a break from HoP. It's been nice. And then nice to come back.

I thought it'd be nice to have a thread where folks can sign off for a period of time. Even nice if folks needed to get something done and signed off so we can all help them stay focused (from writing a paper to getting a job!) People could limit their posts (like I'm doing) or sign of completely for a set period of time.

Of course, they could tell us when they're back.

Sometimes, it's important to take a break from the internet completely. I saw an interesting thing about "internet addiction." It said the internet was just enough of an APPARENT community without actually giving the full support of a real community to keep people addicted and yet constantly craving more.

I'm certainly not addicted to the internet (thankfully) but understand the sentiment.

So I'm taking a break. I'm sure I'll go look at the video threads quite often during my coffee breaks but aside from that I'd like to keep my interaction occasional.

Perhaps others have some places they should be (or some things they should be doing) and would like to use this thread to keep them honest. I even stuck the word "vacation" in the title to make it easier to search.

My friends know how to get in touch with me. Or PM me here since I will post occasionally.

Happy New Year. biggrin


Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

Posted:I am still here sometimes, I lurk a bit. At the moment, though Magic: TG, Counter Strike Source and my Job are taking up a lot of my spare time. Also my internet sucks hard.

Nice to know people still remember me though!

(And I'll tell Nats you called her gorgeous Kyri!)


After much consideration, I find that the view is worth the asphyxiation.

I may disagree with what you have to say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.
