Out of the Blue

I'm thinking about my mom a lot these past few days, as it was five years ago today that she died. I bring this up not to bring you down, nor do I need anybody's sympathy over this. But if you still have your mom, dad, or both, I'd like to ask you to give them a call or a hug today. It sounds corny, but it makes me feel good suggesting that; maybe because I know my mom would have liked the thought.

Still up for shipping that to me?

Yeah, hit me up in steam. If you want it - I will buy 2. One for me and one for you. Then have it shipped. Let me know.

The cause of all these evils was the lust for power arising from greed and ambition; and from these passions proceeded the violence of parties once engaged in contention.

Enahs that isn't the import.

What is special about the import? As I was thinking about buying the enhanced edition my self.

Thank you Blue. I'm one of the lucky ones who not only still has both parents but consider them two of my best friends... and still I should see them more than I do. I honestly don't know how I'll cope when they pass.



Without trying to be disrespectful to Blue or any others that have lost loved ones, I'd like to offer anyone who's lost a parent the option of adopting my mother, on the condition that she's then yours, and you can't give her back.

I hate hearing that nin, it honestly makes me sad. But even though I obviously don't really know you, I'm pretty sure you're a good guy who hasn't used the "bad parent card" to justify being an asshole like so many people do.

Post count and sort order seem to be working fine now for me.

As for calling mom, I don't have to, I can just yell down the hall. Yeah, that's right, I'm a slacker that still lives at home. I did have a place of my own for a while, but certain unfortunate circumstances forced me to move back home. I'm not getting a free ride either, I pay rent and some of the utilities, buy groceries and fix shit that breaks.

Aye kanniball, it looks to me like all the posts have timestamp set to "Sep 18, 2008, 13:01" and therefore there is no ordering. On top of that though all those posts are listed in #1-20 order, and the more recent posts (which are working normally) are back to the #20-1 (i.e. most recent first) order. So there's 19,18,1,2,3...

[edit: going back to the main page after posting this I see comment counts have returned on some threads so I guess someone is working on them right now].
Yes, I found the cause of the missing post counts: new posts had be stored with the wrong boardid field, but fixing them (all 480 or so posts) affected their timestamps, in turn messing up the sort order in the related threads. But that 'sorts' itself out over time, if you'll excuse the pun.

Blue,

I'm getting weird Sort orders on the posts. Even though mine is set to newest first, the sort order is screwy.

For example, today's Crysis Warheads thread.

That is the original release on Amazon, not the Enhanced Edition with all the schwag.

GoGamer has the Enhanced import.

I had my issues as well, but there is only one pair of parents, nin

I thank god for that, frankly...

Perhaps when I have time later I might tell you all about the time she accidentally poisoned the rest of the family with flea powder...

And that's not something you just let run through your system, BTW. No no no, it has to come back up...
