Hey guys,

Totally bad news for you all - my PC is wrecked. It has contracted a nasty virus even my 1337 skillz can't get rid of, and in essence every time I plug my modem in my PC restarts and continually crashes until I unplug it FROWN.GIF

So that means I need to do a complete system wipe, which means spending a day or two backing up my entire PC. Now, this wouldn't be a problem except - I can't seem to find a day or two to do this stongue.gif I am pretty busy just now in work, plus over the Summer I will be taking part in a 20-day volunteer/community service type thing which will require all of my focus, plus I will have to work overtime to make up for those 20 days off, plus I will be going to Alton Towers for 4 days mid-August, plus a musical festival for 3 days at the end of August... in short, don't expect me back until September stongue.gif

However, it is not all bad news. I will be spending the downtime catching up on a lot of the manga, anime, music, movies and particularly comics I have missed this past year. As such, I will write a bunch of articles offline, and hopefully I will write up the "How Your Computer Works", "Poker Masterclass" and some Encyclopedia (either Lost, Heroes, Prison Break, X-Men or Sonic... haven't decided yet) ... big big projects in essence, which spending my time away from both here and The Center will give me the space needed to write them up.

After the Summer, I will come back, upload the articles and then I may be modding a "Mafia" game over at The Center (these are a lot of fun btw and I suggest you check them out, see: The Holodeck / The Center Forums) which will take up a lot of my time for several weeks. Apart from that, I aim to spend my Autumn/Winter here, catching up on what I have missed and generally contributing.

It is simply exhausting trying to get this place to reach its full potential, as I'm sure Grand will emphasise. For now, I am going to take things step by step. The main things being I won't be here much until September, and I will work on some articles while I am offline. Whatever happens in the future will happen, I'm happy just to let things progress organically and not try to force the issue.

Grand, I leave things in your capable hands ^_^ it would be a dream to come back and find us the number #1 website on the planet, but I'll be happy to come back and just find us still here ssmile.gif

Anyway... feel free to tell me how your Spring has been and whatnot ssmile.gif I will try to pop in as often as I can, but don't expect to see me again until September. Don't worry about it, don't feel sad stongue.gif, just enjoy your Summer all and make it a good one!!


Ciao x
