These forums have been relatively inactive for around four years, now. I imagine we're all in different places than we were way back then. So what's changed with you all?

For me, I'm still up in Indiana, graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering, and just got a new job working as a service engineer with a large machinery company. I get flown out around the world (mostly US) on the company's dime to help with start-up of the equipment (making sure that it's up to spec after shipping, that it's installed properly, and providing training and basic maintenance instructions to the foreman and the operators of the equipment). I'm still new to it, but I'm liking my coworkers and liking that I get to see the world while I'm still young, so that's pretty awesome.

So... who's gotten married, had kids, moved someplace new, gotten a degree, etc?

Welcome back, Tofu. It's been a while.

Relative to when I disappeared (and some of this is not going to be news, but I can't remember what I've updated on, and I'm too lazy to go back and look), I graduated with a BS in Psychology, got married (no kids, and none in the foreseeable future), received a promotion at work (I'm now management, and implementing programming for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders, plus driving all over southwest Wisconsin), my wife and I have bought a house and adopted a dog. We now have three nieces and 3 nephews on her side and 2 nephews on mine. We each have a sibling who will be attending college in town (at my alma mater) starting after Labor Day.

So who else do we need to have check in? My list includes (and add to it, by all means) SOCL, Tex, Mad, Krytos, Jahled, Scath and JediHunter.

On a side note, have you seen GMC's last ZW2 post? He wrote it and had me edit it before he died, and I finally decided to forget the story's order and proxy-post it for him.

Congrats on the job, Tofu! Its always fun to travel around, and jobs you enjoy can sometimes be rare.

I'm curious about the others on your list, Mitth. Wonder how long it will be before (if) they stop by and see this.

Only time will tell. I figured out who I forgot, for which I'm eternally apologetic. Rob, what's new in your life?

EDIT: Figured out one of those I forgot...D16, you still around?

I've been checking the site regularly, but am usually too lazy to login :oops: Unless something really "piques" my curiosity; like this thread :wink:

It's good to see things are going well for all of you: Tofu, Mitth and Master Xan. Rob has dropped in occasionally, but I haven't seen any of the others in ages. Maybe they'll check in again someday once "Star Wars" starts making a comeback; maybe.

I'll go ahead and be creepy and check in a little bit for Rob and SOCL since I'm facebook friends with them.

Rob is happily married and still living in New York. He's a pretty hardcore Rangers fan still, and he's exploring (or at least posting pictures of) some interesting culinary creations including some form of pizza topped with bits of duck and what appears to be a Mexican dish that involves cooking with beer.

SOCL is also happily married, and appears to be persisting with his perpetual student life, or else keeping up to date with his former university... either way, it made it into his recent posts. He also appears to still be a giant Roman nerd, but none of the most recent pictures feature him in full armor, so I'm going to guess that the conventions have gone by the wayside for him.

Both seem to be doing quite well.

Insomnia for some reason drove me here. Not that I begrudge it, but I would much rather be sleeping.

Yeah, reenactment is a bit of a ways behind me. And yes, "perpetual student" might be the right way to characterize what I'm doing these days, though it has more to do with "I'm wasting my life in jobs I don't particularly care for" than a need to be a student again, haha! I just decided to go back to get my Master's and maybe one day soon by Ph.D. in ancient art history/history/archaeology.

Something like that...

Not sure if I should sympathize with you for the insomnia, or praise it for bringing you back?

In all fairness, insomnia sucks. I seem to have largely gotten over mine with marriage and a good bed. Have you tried sex and/or melatonin?

:lol: It would be unseemly for me to comment on the former, but regarding the latter: I probably should get some sort of supplement. I'm actually going to the store today to get some z-quil in hopes that it will start regulating my sleep cycle. I can barely think straight, which is bad when you're trying to do regular class work and research...

I've never used melatonin, but I've heard a lot of good things about it. If it were me, I would try that first. Just my two cents.

Even so, I'll try the extra sex first. :lol:

Having tried both, the Melatonin works better for me, as sex seems to just wake me up. Maybe that isn't the case for you. I know my body is weird. (Caffeine knocks me out.) I take 10-15 mg about (and I usually forget to follow this rule) 30 minutes before you want/need to fall asleep. I usually take the 15 mg when I miss my half hour window. I take the pills but a lot of the kiddos I work with are on the liquid. I suppose you could try grinding up the pills and snorting them (on account of mucus membranes absorbing drugs faster than ingestion) is you did want it to take effect sooner. What's nice about Melatonin is that it does occur naturally in the human body. The supplement just gives your body a nice boost. I think they make an extended release version as well, which would help you stay asleep through the night, or day, I suppose, if you work third shift.

If you have questions above and beyond that, consult Google.

Let's call *sex* for what it is... jerking off works for me. :lol:

SOCL and I are married, though. For some of us, sex is actually sex.

Well married doesn't mean you're getting it everytime you're wanting it. I may not be married, but I know enough married people to know that. :lol:
