Somehow mixed them up and forgot which was which.

Last week was a slower more normal 40 hour week... still had the usual 10 hour day today though (Tuesday's are the busiest), but hopefully with a few temps now maybe things will slow down again at my job. We definitely need the break...

Weather warming up and I'm already turning the AC on. Can't sleep in humid hot junk.

I am. We have Disneyland. Florida has Walt Disney World.

It's going all right. I was scheduled for just weekends, but they started asking me to do nights too as part of my availability.

So ... work at the center Monday through Friday 8 'til 4.

Work at Disneyland the rest of my waking hours.

Yep, sorry all I haven't been around much... still getting worked a lot with overtime. Apparently the unemployment rate is SO low right now they're having trouble getting us temps to help with the influx of work. We've only had one or two people hired on when they could usually get a dozen to us in a few weeks. Hope it slows down soon...

How's the new job going Rogue?

Started my new job this past weekend. Heh, what's a weekend?

I feel like I'm going to fuck it up somehow.

Sorry you're overworked, Xeo. I imagine I'll be in that same boat soon.


I'm on my last two weekends and people are flaking on our plans together. You'd think I'd learn.

Been MIA since work is killing me lately. Lots of overtime lately.

Definitely need to get out of the first job. I made a mistake and scuffed a parked car. Left a note on the car and told my boss, against the urging of my co-worker to just drive away. I'm facing the possibility (again) of getting fired.

Tired as fuck of everything else there AND my boss is talking about pursuing a possible job in Texas.

Two weeks from my last hurrah before I lose all my weekends.

Hope it works out well! Could maybe lead to better full time ventures too or some business networking.

Been busy lately with the damn crazy weather. It was literally like 60 degrees on Sunday, when it was below freezing earlier last week, and then we had an ice storm last night. This was the third time this winter my job has had us call the hotline in first to see if the specimens/work was delivered and of course... yes. The day a production based corporation shuts down for weather in Kansas will truly blow my world away, I just laugh when supervisors tease us with this crap.

Super glad I got new tires in November since they've been put to work a lot this winter. It hasn't been a seriously bad winter, compared to one a few years ago back at my other apartment with my old roommate... we basically got snowed in. But yeah this winter has been pretty annoying and I'm ready for it to be done.

Got a new job. It's a part-time, second job, but I'm way more enthused about it than the current full time position of which I've held for four years now. Plus, helps bang out my credit card debt.

Since I'm currently only scheduled for weekends at new job until I work out how to get from one job to the other in a reasonable amount of time, I don't expect to have any weekends for a while. It's fine.

I wish I could say I had more irons in the fire, but I'm pretty much a dumpster fire these days.

Thanks for the concern. It's appreciated.

We're far enough from the Woolsey fire that our (Elara's and my) homes aren't in danger, but we're getting the smoke occasionally.

The Camp fire is on the other end of the state, but it's pretty much taken out an entire town of Paradise and killed 29 people. 48 people.

UPDATE: Changed the number to match with the most recent reportings since firefighters were finally able to enter some of the burned homes and take a tally of the bodies.

Hope you guys and everyone else are doing okay and away from the fires over there.

I thought you got out of retail?

Holiday season in retail. At my old club, it meant lots of prep and work your ass off. At the new club, it means you are basically a slave and your entire life outside of work doesn't matter.

Take lots of zinc. Good preventative and cuts colds short.

I had a lot of busy weekends lately, but yeah, work's back to sucking. It was to the point that I've been snapping in front of my boss, most especially at his mistress who acts like she's also a boss around there.

Lots of overtime lately for me, work has been pretty hectic since September. My paychecks are looking nicer than normal at least haha...

I always get sick in November... don't want to knock on wood here but I'm hoping I make it out this time!

Well, I've managed to keep busy, and people keep going, "Why are you still at this job you hate?" Because I let myself go through cycles of feeling comfortable. I still despise a lot of the people I work with, but I turn my focus back to the clients.

Anyway, I've always lived for the weekends.

Given there's literally no legitimate registrations in the past year or so, why not close registrations altogether or add a passkey for legitimate users perhaps coming from Jul?

I'd personally like to see the board rebooted using a stable fork, such as Kak2x/jul which I have tested and works on PHP 7.3 and MariaDB 10.1, this board software probably has a lot of holes due to being on outdated php version or something, idk

But I know that isn't happening as that'd probably be pointless to do, I'd still like to see something done that can make Xeogaming once more great
