    Sorry about the forums being down. Thankfully @Gandalf let me know or I would have never know this site and my business site I run of this was down. It was all over some kind of duplicate billing error that I already paid.

    Anyway life is crazy, but the world is crazier! Terrorist attacks, 2 crazy people running for US office. The Yankees on their way to a 2nd to last place finish. WTF!

    Doing pretty good. The company I was working for axed one of their 2 business units and I got laid off with about 25% of their workforce. Although I was only laid off for about 5 days before I found something else. Huge raise too.

    Also the A's make me sad.

    I'm glad you landed on your feet so quickly! It's pretty tough out there in the work force. You're still in IT?

    I don't get the A's anymore. Time to get Beane out of there.

    Beane isn't the GM anymore, so it's looking like the issue is ownership. They get to participate in revenue sharing until they build a new stadium, so even though the team sucks, they make a ton. No incentive to build, no incentive to make the team better.

    Life is complex for sure. I'm currently digging deep into network traffic analysis. This has been keeping me busy for a while. The goal is to become a security analyst but I got a world ahead of me. Just getting my feet wet right now. Our hospital was bought out but I got to keep the job with a minor raise. So right now things are looking stable. Lots of health issues but working on solutions. Exercise is a hard thing to commit to when you have a passive personality. Been playing a ton of guitar on the side. I will be heading to Disney in November to take the girls there for their "true" first time. They were too young to remember the first time. Politics are the worst in my lifetime! Holy shit! How the hell we ended up with two shit heads? Grrr!

    Anyway, hope you all are doing OK and are living stable lives. It's been a while since I was here. The other day I panicked because I thought the site was gone. But Mike put me at ease with the announcement of some server issues via Steam.

    Oh I thought he still had a hand in the GM decisions.

    I can't believe the talk of a new stadium is dragging on this long. It's been like 5 years hasn't in? MLB needs to step in.

    That sounds neat. You're looking for hackers?

    Nice congrats on the raise!

    I hear ya with exercise. I've been trying to keep my diet 80% protein and as little carbs as possible. I joined a gym, but never go. Instead when I get home from work I take about 40 minutes and do a brisk walk. It's really amazing to see thing at the foot level now that I'm always in a car. It's like a different view on life seeing everything on foot and so far it's paying off in the muscle and fat loss goals.

    Have fun in Disney, your kids should love it!

    I know you're into Dream Theater, have you ever heard these guys?
