My current situation...

    I've been getting asked where I've been by many people, so here you go:

    So, I've been out of action for a while do to circumstances well beyond my control. This is why I have not been around to work on the servers, be on steam, or frequent the website... The extent of my internet access when I'm not at a friends house, as I put it in another thread: "shitty-signal-I'm-lucky-to-connect-to-the-internet-in-the-first-place-and-if-I-do-I'm-lucky-to-get-80%-packet-loss-and-10kbit-speeds-at-2000-ping-through-my-phone"...

    In other words, absolutely unusable. I'm in a remote area of Illinois right now with no ISP's servicing us.. I'm working off of a non existant cell signal.

    As also previously mentioned, I'm leaving for the Army soon, and I need to prep PF for that, but its not quite ready yet for that to happen. We have many many ongoing projects right now including server upgrades and my absence came at the worst time possible for those reasons...

    So there you go. I don't know when I'll be able to be on again on a consistent basis. Hopefully soon, but it will problably be a couple weeks at the very least. This whole situation makes me feel useless, and it pisses me off..

    I hope you guys are happy with your internet connection now, with this perspective.

    Well fuckballs....

    That 100% sucks. If there is anything I or anyone can do to help I'm sure noone would complain. (I mean I probably would, but only jokingly) I've come to love all you cockmonglers in the last year and I want to keep this place running smoothly so please keep us posted on things that can or need to be done to make your transition as smooth as possible.

    This really sucks - I knew part of the story from what you had told me already. I can understand your frustration, I'm sure I would be going nuts myself. I hope you can get something worked out soon.

    I wish you the best Ray. You have done a great job for pF and I hope that you will be able to be back one day. I value my super slow internet connection now.

    Aw buddy hope things go well. Like you said this comes at a really bad time, but I'm sure enough of us here can keep things running smoothly. And if something breaks, we can always blame Haplo Valve.

    Try to have fun while you're out and around. No point in making a bad situation worse with a down attitude. I hear people used to play board games before the Internet took off. :laugh:

    (If that joke sucked, you're allowed to hit me when you get back :razz:)

    I'm sure we'll get through it eventually. But I hate nothing more than when the internet busts. There's hardly anything fun to do without internet access. :dry:

    We're all close to each other Mista Banana since I'm from Peoria Heights, IL :teehee:

    I have temporary internet access over the weekend (courtesy of v12dock and muffinfuhrer). Time to get some shit done.

    Awesome. A friend in need is a friend indeed! That's awesome that you've got good buddies around to help you out! Bigups Muffin and v12! If I was anywhere near you, I would totally let you leech my internet :razz:
