    Just wanted to let people know that the player center is going to be delayed ( just had one more guide book :( ) , to won' t be able to do the Halloween house tour, and my vendors at the sinful creations won't be restocked. Won't be able to buy a new computer until next year. :(
    Posted from my iPad. :(

    That's not good. Is it just a part or the whole thing is fried? Its not going to be much fun without you for over two months.

    Whole thing fried :(. Looks like my audio card cause the motherboard to give up. Guess it wasn't much of a suprise, I built it in 2005. Now stuck with just my iPad. :(. Take care

    Unfortunately , hubby's computer is set up for recording his music, so very little memory and off limits. See if I build him another. During the move my brother let me use his but he is now about 130 miles away. Boy I wish I had bought a lap top instead of this I pad :( I miss My friends and uo. Lol I think I've convinced hubby that the house painting can wait 1 more year and that instead I really really need a new computer for the Yule.

    It's not the same without you running around the lands. So you need to hurry back especially since your favorite decorating time of year is upcoming. 130 miles is a 2 hour drive. Go swipe the computer back. Or think black Friday sale. ;)

    Garion, I REALLY need to get back into playing as well. I've been managing a login every couple weeks or so, but health and other issues (like one friend losing his mother, then another friend getting married - and my D&D GM of 25 years passing right in the middle of my own health problems) keeps cutting into the time I originally allotted for gaming. Hell, even the local game store was resulting in my playing tabletop RPGs, card games and board games 4 nights a week, until recently, as I was running many of the non-card events as a volunteer.

    Keep an Eye out for my characters, because after nearly a year of maybe an hour playing a month, I will really need help getting back into things.

    Hi Gamlin,

    I'm sorry to hear that RL has been a bit rough. I can truly empathize and I hope it will get better. I have always found UO is like riding a bike in that you never truly forget how to play. But if you need any help, don't hesitate to ask. Always happy to provide assistance where I (or the UMP) can.
