I will be visiting family May 1-7. I live in a different state and only see my parents, brother, and nieces once, or maybe twice per year.

I decided not to bring my laptop so as to avoid the temptation of logging in. The point is to visit and spend time with family.

I hope you understand. I will be on Discord via phone app, so if you want to say hi or alert me to an IC missive, I won't be completely incommunicado.

PSA: I am regularly busy with work in the last week of each month but this month its run into a family visit and now, a bout of sickness. I am very behind on my PMs and so if you have something urgent I haven't replied to, feel free to poke me again about it, as I have over 200 unread messages in my inbox at this point, that I have to sift through - there will be a timelag on this!

RL got too busy and tiring for me lately, I can't keep up to play Syndreth to the quality I wanted, so I'm putting her on a hiatus and taking a brake.
Have fun in the meantime! ;)

....this is very much still in effect. I'm catching up, but the chances of me overlooking something from 5 weeks ago are high

Please do poke if you think I'm ignoring you!

Reminder for those I regularly play with. I'm trying to "unplug" as much as possible for this visit, but I still have the Discord app on my phone if you want to say hi.

I'll be out of town for work stuff until the 17th of May. Any PMs meant for me, please also include the HDMs (if it's rules or lore related) or Chambordini and Valefort (if it's tech related) in your message. I should have some Internet access, but I don't know how much time I'll have to check in here until I'm back home.

Turns out I had to work yesterday and then have been struck down with the lurgy so I don't think I'll get through it all. I have to fly to Scotland tomorrow so I probably have some enforced time in the hotel room after I land or on the train back on Tuesday so I hope to catch up then.

Out of the country until May 22! Never been to Europe before. As a D&D nerd, I am looking forward to seeing the motherland. :D

So it turns out when Windows is updating and says "do not turn off your computer", it really means it. Even when the update has already taken five hours.

Expect delays while I crusade against the foul corruption in my primitive laptop.

I've got it running but have had to reinstall everything, and its still a bit mixed up. Installed the server updates overnight, got in game for 30 seconds, now have to reinstall the updates from scratch. I'll probably be back later today.

Got a new computer under construction. Thank you everyone who has had saintly patience for my stone age area transit load times over the years, the end is in sight ;-)
