In the Immortal Words of Macho Man Randy Savage...

Postby goatunit » Sun Nov 17, 2019 8:27 pm

"Uhm bayack!"

So I had a crazy stretch of assorted problems. Chief among them was an intense physical pain in my right index finger that defied diagnosis for years. It got to the point I couldn't type, and so I haven't been around. I finally found a surgeon who was willing to amputate, and got it done in October. But! When I woke up from surgery, I still had my finger attached. It turned out to be a glomus tumor, which was finally discovered during the operation. I'm now pain free for the first time in about five years, and it's life changing.

An Article About Glomus Tumors

Also, some of yall know about some problems I've had stemming from political activism. Without getting too deep into it, the ACLU won our lawsuit and it is (hopefully) resolved.

In other news, I've been playing an evil wizard on a Spelljammer podcast: The Keepers of the Cosmology! We're almost certainly on your app of choice, and I'd be super grateful for folks taking a listen and passing us along to anybody you think might be interested.

I've also been running a Roll20 game. Hi Keith! Your threads on the Roll20 forums have been a big help in learning the ropes, and I always get a warm feeling seeing your avatar in those threads.
:love:

What'd I miss?

More of the same, from the remaining old timers mostly. I'm almost done with an AI that procedurally generates FTB Compliant Forum threads complete with end of first page tangents, and brief returns to the original topic before devolving into extremely in depth (in theory) arguments where everyone is just kind of talking past one another, usually between me and Clint.

Hey now, don't forget to include a short exchange in which you and I agree about video games a couple times a month.

goatuniiiiiiiiiiit!!!

Great news about your freedom from pain! That's got to feel like a whole new lease on life. Folks here have been terribly concerned. Glad your other trials and tribulations have been sorted as well.

I spend waaaay too much time on Roll20 (I was a moderator for a while), but if you need anything, I can either give you a hand or find someone who can. Do you post there under a different moniker?

"DM Theseus," but I haven't posted on the forums. Every time I've struggled with something, you've been in the search results. It's been fun learning.

I thought we were going to snap on a Slim Jim.
