Hello PD.

My PC died last April and I just got around to building a new one. With an actual keyboard and no godawful mobile interface to deal with I thought I'd jump on.

So here I am.

Oh shit.

Another 3 returning posters and there's a full on catastrophe brewing. Meanwhile, texas is a frozen hell. I'm not saying you're responsible, just that you should apologise and make a suitable donation of sledding equipment.

EoC disappears just as a global lockdown starts. Coincidence? I think not.

I don't believe I'm responsible for either of these things but I don't know enough about me to say that for sure.

EoC was Running From Mexico at the time, to be fair. I don’t think it’s fair to put all of this on him, he had quite enough to deal with at the time.

How the hell can any sane person go 11 months without a computer?  They can't.

I can confirm. I went a mere 6 months stuck on my phone in 2020 and it nearly killed me.

It started at the fingertips, and crept up my arms: heavy bruising and what looked like spider bites. By the time I got out of Texas, people were complimenting me on my weird PCB trace tattoos, and by the time I got a laptop again the red marks had started to sprout little WiFi antennae.

Having no healthcare, I had to bribe a surgeon in Chicago into surgically excising the communications circuitry spontaneously growing in my limbs and replacing my now ruined muscles with vat-grown chimpanzee biceps.

The bruising has mostly gone away, but the surgeon said that if I’d gone another 2 months they’d have to behead me, hook me up to a massive machine with a bunch of Tesla coils on it and do the whole brain transfer thing like in bad 50s scifi movies. It’s real, by the way.

So I have to agree that EoC couldn’t have possibly been entirely without a computer for almost a full year. At least regular computer exposure would be required.

Sup EOC! How has your insane neverending lockdown been going? you manage to stay healthy and clean?

I'm curious - How has the It Franchise affected your diet?

I thought you had a reason for doing it, because it’s been locked since I saw your last post in it. Admittedly I was like an hour late to read it, but still, it’s been locked since shortly after that post.

And I’ve been asking myself why you’d do that ever since, so, uh, that answers my original question.

It's possible I did it by accident, but I can't see how I could have.

It was locked by yourself, its easy to do on mobile though normally I end up stickying things, instead of locking them

I'm on desktop and there's a 6" gap between post and lock.  Still, it's not impossible.
