I wish the weather would make up its mind here!

Wow, allergies or flu hit me like a truck.

I'm kicking. But I don't have much positive to say. So when all I can do is #$%$@#!!, I normally just shut up.

My latest adventure is to fix a coolant leak in my car that is making its way to my passenger side floor board. I am guessing that it is a bad heater core. I have steadily been losing coolant and haven't seen it leaking anywhere until I saw the floor board soaked.

I owe $1600 to the state due to mix up with a prior employer. Which is just lovely.

And I am currently sitting in a laundromat with a kid that won't shut the hell up, keeps stomping around, and just generally needs her ass beat.

Are you sick of hearing me yet? I have plenty more if you want to hear.

(Okay, the little girl is now flopping around on the floor as if she is having a seizure and only now is the mother telling her to behave.)

Oh man, that's a ride right there! I can not stand little brats myself either. Yeah it sounds like a bad heater core, does the floorboard smell sweet?

I wouldn't worry too much about that little of taxes, they aren't going to throw you in jail. I had around $1200 owed to the IRS due to the same kind of thing and just let it ride for a few years until I had full-time employment. Then they took my tax return.

What model and year of car do you have?
Life is like an orange, it is small, round and has a few pips in it... Oh, and some have half of one for breakfast.
Yep, it is sweet and I am seeing a green pool start to form. I can't take my ride back into the shop yet so I took it to a car wash and vaccumed the cab real quick. Hopefully, I can keep it maintained until Monday when I should have time.

I wish you were closer dude, at the very least I could make a bypass for it. I am assuming you don't have those kinds of tools available to you.

Wow. There's barely anyone that comes here anymore :/ I remember when it used to be way more active
Hi there Aqua Tears, this place is pretty slow but there are some of us still here.
Life is like an orange, it is small, round and has a few pips in it... Oh, and some have half of one for breakfast.
Hi SailorDecember ^_^ I've been doing some exploring, and noticed some broken links here and there. Does any of the Webmasters still come on or have they all disappeared as well?

Btw, I gave you Kudos for your response. So thank you! It seems to be a lot more difficult giving Kudos to other active accounts. :/ I would give Magus Kudos as well but I have 0 now. I kind of forgot how this works but I want to be able to level up to the next level, so I'm trying to figure that out at this point.
They come on and Scott keeps the site running, but it doesn't look like there is allot of active maintenance. I'm just so happy they keep it running.
Life is like an orange, it is small, round and has a few pips in it... Oh, and some have half of one for breakfast.
You want to go to "Sailormoon.org" then to "Change your Preferences" then to "Promotion Request". Also thank you.
Life is like an orange, it is small, round and has a few pips in it... Oh, and some have half of one for breakfast.
I only have 290, and need 1000 :/ I don't think I'll be getting that promotion any time soon. Thank you for sending me off in the right direction ^_^

How else can I get points other than the 1000 per month?
A long weekend turned into 3 days of work. Glad to be back at work.
Life is like an orange, it is small, round and has a few pips in it... Oh, and some have half of one for breakfast.
AquaTears...hmm. Call me crazy, but that username sounds vaguely familiar.

Anyways, welcome back.

Are you anxious to hear any news at all on when the Dream Arc of Sailor Moon Crystal will drop? A date still hasn't dropped since the confirmation last January.
signature image Some things can't be unseen.
Hm. Really? I shortened it, I usually use aqua_moon_tear, AquaMoonTear, etc. It was actually inspired from the Legend of Zelda Majora's Mask game, there was a scene of the moon's tear and I liked how it looked so I made a username out of it.

And thank you! :)

I've been patiently waiting for news about the Dream Arc .. but my patience is wearing thin. I think they should've by now told us SOMETHING about their progress, at the very least? Instead of leaving us hanging :/
.....Why am I still at 330 points?? It's been a little over a month and no sign of that 1000 monthly points in sight :(
Points do not go up for some reason, which is fine, Scott is basically keeping this up as a charity. We all appreciate that, even though this community is mighty small at the moment.
Life is like an orange, it is small, round and has a few pips in it... Oh, and some have half of one for breakfast.
Soo guess this means no promotion for me. Oh well :/ I've been trying to get more people in here but they seem to not care
This place needs to be active for points and ranks to matter anymore. With what few people we have here we could start a RPG or something here to try and boost activity.

I dunno. You have lurkers here. So try and promote something.
signature image Some things can't be unseen.
Magus, if you want to DM it, I will play.
Life is like an orange, it is small, round and has a few pips in it... Oh, and some have half of one for breakfast.
If I do start something, at the very least I am going to wait and see if MBH logs in and notices first. With you and me with possibly Aqua and her if they are interested, we would have four players which is plenty to start something with.
signature image Some things can't be unseen.
Sure, count me in :)
Yeesh, it's been too long, sorry minna-san. Obsessing over Sailor Moon Drops lately and figured "what the hay, let's log into Grep*!". If there's talk about an RPG we can do over the board, I'm in :D

Sounds like you have some takers and it will be a long one for sure given the reply rate.
Life is like an orange, it is small, round and has a few pips in it... Oh, and some have half of one for breakfast.
Not to sound disrespectful to Scott's generosity of keeping Grep* alive, but what's the rush? Maybe we can return as the net's best and only SM RPG website? :)
signature image "We must fight with ourselves...within our hearts...and we must do it harshly, in order to come to the right conclusions."
Just speculating, but I think a major part of that kind of traffic would mean a total rewrite of the site. I can't blame him for not wanting to put that much work into smorg after all these years.
Life is like an orange, it is small, round and has a few pips in it... Oh, and some have half of one for breakfast.
Got some takers. Cool. When I get my internet back and don't have to rely on my damn phone, I'll throw something together.
signature image Some things can't be unseen.
Sounds good Magus :)
I am laying awake unable to sleep. I just opened a group for people to join if they are interested in the upcoming RPG.

"Inherited Fates" is the title I more or less settled on. You can find it in my joined list since the Moon Kingdom is a damn nightmare to find my way around.
signature image Some things can't be unseen.
There's no join button for me
I am guessing that I had to set "Write" permissions. Try it now.

The start of the game has been pushed back to October since I am not getting my internet back as soon as I thought I would.

I hope everyone here has a good Labor Day.
signature image Some things can't be unseen.
Hey Magus, I hope things are going better on your side man.
Life is like an orange, it is small, round and has a few pips in it... Oh, and some have half of one for breakfast.
Howdy all, can you believe it's October!
Life is like an orange, it is small, round and has a few pips in it... Oh, and some have half of one for breakfast.
Wow, can everyone believe it's nearly Halloween again?
Life is like an orange, it is small, round and has a few pips in it... Oh, and some have half of one for breakfast.
I'm ready for halloween. Down here in Sydney it means summer is almost here and I can't wait to finally ahve a full summer. I moved here in January this year and so I missed half the summer. I was also so busy with moving stuff that it meant I didn't really get time to do anything fun like go to the beach or go swimming.

Does anyone else have any exciting Halloween Plans? Jamie and I are going to a costume party.
How did Halloween go Josh?
Life is like an orange, it is small, round and has a few pips in it... Oh, and some have half of one for breakfast.
The holidays all seem to mush together. When I was young, I seriously remember it taking FOREVER to come.

Maybe it's because I'm older, distracted, realise that the world is filled with expenses and heartbreak, not magic...

... or maybe it's that the freaking stores start putting out Christmas decorations BEFORE Halloween, and on TV there is a Countdown TO the Christmas Countdown.

I don't think I'll feel "right" until it's the new year.

It's all a state of mind, you can enjoy it, or you can make it cause misery. Our family just chooses to ignore all of the commercialization and greed, we have a simple Thanksgiving and Christmas with close family only. It's how YOU choose to perceive it.

It's December!

Nearly Christmas again, crazy how time flies.

We went several years without snow, so it's safe to assume these early blizzards are going to be the norm this year.

This may be a blustery winter. It's like 5f with wind chill and the roads are ice.
Life is like an orange, it is small, round and has a few pips in it... Oh, and some have half of one for breakfast.
Howdy all, just a few days away from Christmas, I hope everyone has at-least some little plan.

Welp, never thought I would be writing a eulogy for Christmas. Time goes too quick.

Soon it shall be Christmas. Merry Christmas everyone!

A whole new year, 2017 was a whopper.
Life is like an orange, it is small, round and has a few pips in it... Oh, and some have half of one for breakfast.
Ugh, back at work again. Time flies.
Life is like an orange, it is small, round and has a few pips in it... Oh, and some have half of one for breakfast.
Man, 2017 didn't let up right until the very end. It's been ice cold here, around -5f in the morning and down to -15f one night. Crazyness. It anyone else here living in the north?
Life is like an orange, it is small, round and has a few pips in it... Oh, and some have half of one for breakfast.
Anyone ever hear from Magus again?
Life is like an orange, it is small, round and has a few pips in it... Oh, and some have half of one for breakfast.
Turns out that I am an unmotivated liar. I won't turn this into a blog post but life keeps throwing me beanballs.
signature image Some things can't be unseen.
What? Who said that? You work pretty hard as far as I know.
Life is like an orange, it is small, round and has a few pips in it... Oh, and some have half of one for breakfast.
Not in a day to day sense. In an online sense when I said I said I would start that game back in October. Not that there is any activity for it but still.

I'll putz around and set things up when I feel motivated anyway. The only thing I don't miss about this site is actually navigating it. I can't find what I am looking for half the time. Just setting up that tumbleweed group annoyed me since I wasn't even sure where to put it and then where to find it again after making it.

I have been more interested in making a little side money tinkering with things anyway. I have jumped on the Raspberry Pi hype train and I have resold some units to co-workers that have kids as little emulation boxes. Technically illegal since I am selling pirated material but I don't think the cops will be knocking on my door for it. But it is fun seeing what other things I can do with them. I am making one into a little radio tranmitter now just for lulz. So now I can break FCC rules while I am at it. I am such a naughty boy.
signature image Some things can't be unseen.
Haha, that sounds like a fun hobby. I've been powering through art courses and tinkering with Unreal/Unity.

It will be spring soon!
Life is like an orange, it is small, round and has a few pips in it... Oh, and some have half of one for breakfast.
Spring? What's that? Is it that mythical season from a by gone era that used to sit between Winter and Summer?

Seriously, there was snow still on the ground yesterday and it is 80 degrees today. Spring came and went at like 8am.
signature image Some things can't be unseen.
You too! It's nuts! It was like 2' of snow, then BOOM 80f here. NOW IT'S 30f! What!?
Life is like an orange, it is small, round and has a few pips in it... Oh, and some have half of one for breakfast.
For me, it will be fall soon. :)
I keep forgetting there is another side of the world.

It's April!

It's going to be 80f, then a day later, 40f. What kind of whacky weather is this!?

Hey thanks for the link man.

Ugh just ripped out an old sink and ruined carpet. How is everyone's spring going?

You know how I can tell it is Spring? Mid-term elections are now in full swing. If you hate politics, you're going to hate the next six months because you won't be able to get away from it.

I have been emailing SDecember recently and he is locked out of the site. He says that when he was required to change his password, he got an error when he tried to change it and now neither password will get him in.

Now I tried to manually change mine since my renewal isn't for a little while yet and I got the same error, but my old password still works for the time being. I am guessing because the site is still allowing it for the time being. But I suspect that if this keeps up, no one will be able to log in.

Edit: I recall there being a Bug Report thread on here that I should probably have posted this. But for the life of me, I can't find it. And the file search function is broken, too.
signature image Some things can't be unseen.
Thanks! I'll let someone know.

This is a two-line post.
I had a problem with changing my password as well. When I tried to change it, error, but my password was "too old" to let me do anything.

As of today I was successfully able to change my password.

It works for me as well. A big "Thank You" for whoever stepped up to fix it.

I was going to make a two line post.

But I decided to make it three.

Might want to change log level from "Notice" to "Warn". So far that's the only thing I've seen that's borked.

Also that video about the grep command reminds of the long explanation of why the "*" in "grep sailormoon *" is there. also whenever I'm sufficiently drunk and someone asks me how I wound up a software engineer it usually starts with a long conversation about this site and why the internet has been ruined by social media.
