Hello,
If you remmember me, then you know it's time for my check in on what everyone is doing. So, what are you doing? I see someone dug up a MMIO thread. Is Gump still hanging around? I know ArchAngel is still here. Are you still running the show Mack?

I would love to hang out for a time, but who knows. Maybe if enough things peek my interest again. I got some good news though: I'm two chapters shy of having my first book compleatly online to read. Then it's on to editing the next half-book and finishing it.

If you can't rip your own work apart, don't even get started. If you can't deal with failure left and right, don't get started. Oh and get ready to have everyone else tell you how to write, and find out years later that some were right and some were the cause of all the mess you have now.

Hello CPUFreak91,
The simple answer to your qustion is to copy/paste a little info:

Introduction
Azariah is a meeg with a past full of nightmares, deeds of great evil, wishing to take his own life and held at bay by principles. His former master seeks him out – a fiend feeding off suffering Azariah once caused. Eregrom wants him back, but Lady Briana is in his way. Will she defeat Azariah’s torment, or is Vailion and the realms doomed to suffer Eregrom’s will?
Vailion is populated with cat-like people, talking hummingbirds, cannibalistic dreeth, fiends of immeasurable power, and much more. Prepare to go to a world devoid of humans, earth, dwarfs, dragons, and practically everything common in fantasies.

That about covers some basics. If you want plane talk, it's a comidy/adventure. Hope that answers your qustion.


kiwee,
How are things going? I remmember your name and avy, but not what your up to. Sorry about that.

Howdy angel, good to see it is coming along well.

I'm a casual poster, but not much of anything around here interests me as much as it used to.

I like the humor and homeschooled perception in Realm's Girl one, but the others seem dry. I guess something like someone old coming back. Or a good debatable issue.

Gump,
So you're turning into me, but more active.

CPUFreak91,
It'll probably go into print one way or the other. I've about had my fill of searching/submiting/using endless/blind/incompitant lists/publishers/agents. It's sad that they can all fall under the same statment with such ease.

Max,
I'm still trying to grasp the situwation here. Green horns used to come in here all the time, on fire about a project. Most of the people I used to hang out with here, luarned code and got a normal job, or moved on to working at Wal-Mart. Really, it's crazy. One guy is actuly in school right now to do films. I hope it goes well for him.
Anyway, I'll try to keep you guys up to date with important info.

kiwee,
I was wondering about that small post count. I thought for sure, you know, with all the time you have been here. Oh well eh.

Briant,
Very healthy for you.

lava,
Hello there. I like your design.

Realm,
I checked out that thread of yours, but the sheer size of it made me run away. I just don't want to play ketchup.

Mack,
Don't even get me started on complaining. How is the great white north anyway?

ever since CCN's 'clone', blitzcoder, died and CodersWorkshop was born, most the CCN Moderators and Administrators left (appart from Mack), and basicly left us to do our own thing. Yes CCN has grown (i remember when blitzcoder was around, you could post a topic in here, and you will only get your first reply about a week later, but now, you only need to wait a day or so.), but It has also grown rediculous.

but we still love it

kiwee,
I only knew about part of that happening. I heard a good argument was going on over here a few months back, but I lack the time for them. I'v seen to much, made up my own mind, and don't really want other's openions unless I ask. I take that back, I love it when people e-mail me about my book. I've been very blessed with those. Never thought an 8th grade drop out could do so good -- it's a God thing.

Realm,
I've started too many threads like that. Some got me into truble with admins. I'm too dang blunt I guess.

Mack,
It's hard to get me infront of a camra these days. I'm last my muscle tone in my arms, but I still have that boyish charm when I smirk.
No wait, wrong modeling. I did do a little more modeling, but to be honsist, I think I should stick to my calling for now. Modeling was more of a dream that I was comfterble with. Now I'm in a dream that makes me think and wonder.

Briant,
Och. Glad I'm not doing that.

CapnStank,
No wait. CapnStank! I remmember you(in my worst chinese impresion). Got your own foarm now hu. Too much work if you ask me. My server offers that, a chat room, and some other nik-naks. However, ha-ha-ha! I never luarned how to use any of them.

Although I would like to get an old Palm Zaurus...

How are you an old fart? I registered before you.... is it age then? No can't be that either cause I'm as old as Kiwi...

Ah.. It doesn't matter tho. And if you're refering to my post above... I think I'm more of an old school than old fart. (Should I change that?)

CPUFreak, you are part of the newer generation.
Im not sure what I am, as I was the first person that really came that was this young. then en972, very shortly after.
i got grounded from the compy for about 4 months, came back, and there were new (young) people everywhere. it was distrubing, in a way, to think I knew a place, then it was different when I came back.
anybody talked to cobraA1 or AmazingJas lately.or Goop2 (he was pretty young, actually)...

Old fart is a refrence to those of us that have been around for many a year. People that, can cover subjects with me without having to check back in the old threads. They know what people used to be like. They know the refrences to MMIO or the time before I made the little .gif animations, or further back when Krylar spent a good deal of time around here. Then again, you could be someone who knows that I apear about once ever six months to see what my old home baord is up to. This places helped me on my road into my first writings. Anyway, I need to get to my wife.

Wow, what a blast from the past. I feel like Im on friends reunited. The first thing I did when I read this post was contact Kryler to retrieve my password, it is so good to see that so many oldies are still here. I must say that he responded straight away, I really couldn't ask for better service.
A big hello to everyone especially Angel and D-SIPL( took me ages to realise that meant disciple lol ). Its so good also to see guys like Lava and CPUfreak keeping the flame burning.

Hey, long time no see friend! I'm still here, Cheify pops in now and again, as does AmazingJas not as frequently as we all used to, but the new generation is doing a good job of keeping this place alive!

Thanks for the nudge Chippy I really should drop in more often. I mostly hang my web hat over at www.retroremakes.com as my coding projects centre around remakes moreso than Christian projects...though I'd really like to change that

Good to see some fire in the forums though.

Good to see you back, AmazingJas! You haven't posted any of your remakes in the showcase in a while.

Thanks for the compliments on the 2-month-game project! It's coming along nicely -- there are some really amazing artists and programmers on the team -- I'm really impressed by how everyone has pulled together so well. It hasn't been the effort of just one person either -- it's had a lot of good contributors.

Cheers!
