Yes - he should have been on the list of course (Dungeon Architect series were reprinted in Best of WD articles as I remember - great stuff)


You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

I am seriously considering getting out of the game completely and although I will not be selling everything I have, I am figuring a large portion of my stuff is going to be heading out the door.

Yo yo yo everyone!

I very occasionally drop by and scan through some threads. Definitely life 'getting in the way'.

3 kids (ages 7, 5, 2) keep me and my wife busy and we're moving house soon.

Still developing AuctionSieve when I get the time although not really getting to use it myself! I'm making decent money from it now but still not enough that I can quit from contracting. Oh, bring on that day...

And I've been reading Star Wars comics.... heh

BTW Tablet PCs rock for reading pdfs! And cdisplay rocks as well.

*bump*

Alright, does anyone know where Shipley has been lately? I haven't seen him post in at least a couple months now.  I hope everything is okay. :)

Also, where the hell has David been.  Its obvious from Ebay, that he's around, but he hasn't posted anything in awhile either.  C'mon David, where the hell are you? :)

I think David has a pretty hectic job that keeps him on the go.

I know he is around, I can tell.  That wasn't my point. :)  My point was why isn't he posting anymore?

Thinking about Mark earlier - Hasn't posted in nearly a month but last logged on 14/9.

Looking at Mark's profile - he's about to hit another 1000 milestone - guess you're making it a great post Mark? :wink:

FYI

I recently had a deal with Hamilcar and had some problems of communication: this was not usual with him in the past but i had a week of silence after the auction...

Then he popped up and reported that he had troubles with Gustav... apparently few days after he had back power to his home and could log to reply and finalize the deal!

ciaooo

Why don't we start a missing persons list?

mshipley
theshield2000
harami2000
johnhuck

....and then there was that purple dragon dude... :D
....and that guy Kevin who smoked pot and claimed he worked in TSR's office.  :lol:

Do people just lose interest and move on?


This week I've been mostly eating . . . minestrone soup.

Mark is in both the Acaeum fantasy leagues....he is probably just busy with the new school year starting.

Where did Duke go?  He promised to get the new 4E Pyramid of Shadows and tell us what he thought.  I hope it didn't finish him off.... 8O

Ye gods, gyg! I would never bury anyone in the backyard. We have a very large beaver pond, and I have cinderblocks and rope.

Problem is that as the body decomposes, it becomes more likely for bits to break free of the ropes and float to the surface.

On the other hand, provided you can remember to leave out identifying information (old bills, for example), then garbage bags and letting the local trash collection take care of the rest is a surprising effective solution.

















....what? :P

May this period of turmoil pass for you Frank, and that you can come back quickly. I like having you around, even if I don't say much to you.
