    Default RIP the forums man...

    Hey Oscar, do you think there will come a day when you shut this operation down?

    Will be a sad day if it happens.

    Well the forums are practially dead right now. 3 Months since Oscar's last blog post, no Castle news, no other relevant news...

    We could, however, try to revive them with offtopic conversation. Like music recommendations / reviews ... talking about video games and movies... just... stuff. I love talking about music. I can talk about music for hours.

    I can put up a couple microscopic images I took last week if it makes everyone happier. Yeah, microscopic images. You read it right. Images taken under the microscope. I have them.

    We've moved to the discord.
    Rachel Constantine: I was especially interested in the section on Arroway's video unit. The one that recorded the static?
    Michael Kitz: Continue.
    Rachel Constantine: The fact that it recorded static isn't what interests me. What interests me is that it recorded approximately eighteen hours of it.

    I do to be honest. I don't like it, but unless I start to invest more time again on DQ it will be the way to go

    either you change with the times, or die with the obsolete.

    Forums just aren't a good method of growing communities anymore. There's much better and faster ways now in 2017.

    Can't say we didn't see it coming.

    I haven't posted anything in a while, so here we go.

    Right now I'm sitting in front of my laptop with sweaty palms, writing a 3000 word report for my Industrial Attachment assessment listening to MGR:R and SEB. And I still have a "at least 20 slides" presentation that I have not even started on yet.

    And the due day is suddenly brought forward to today.

    so.... yeah, f@($ my life.

    Maybe I'll post some art, when I have time (once in a blue moon).

    It's incredible to see after a decade, we're still standing though (even if we kinda moved to Discord).

    Ironically, if places like the Personals News Thread and Boredom Nexus were still alive, the site wouldn't have died out this soon.

    Off topic, but I was watching a playthrough of the game 'Tales of the Borderlands'. In the game, there's a character called August, who reminds me of Boomer. Like, if I saw a humanised version, not a stick figure one:



    (Also coupled with both character's psychotic personality)

    Too much of a stretch?
