Yeah, capitalism over humanity.

And I hope you're feeling better again. It's probably good you don't make a video with chicken nuggets if you feel bad.

Also... Why the hell do we only have tiny snowboards for women? I know I'm slightly above average, but I'm no giant. I'm currently looking for a new snowboard since my old one started to have dry cracks and well... I'd rather be safe than sorry and not have it break on the slope or in the park, especially in the park.
But so far I have found one, only one board that would be tall enough for me. Everything else for women kinda stops at 154 with an occasional 156 if you're lucky. But I need a 159 at least?
It's a luxury for me and I kept my old one over 10 years (I've kept riding the small one I got as a teen because they're not cheap and I could make do.) so now that I'm gonna buy a new one I'd like a good one (in my price category that is) that I really like, since I'm gonna be using it for another decade most likely. But it's really surprising me that my selection is cut down so badly.

159 is slightly above average? o_o

Aww man, a while ago I told you that I don't sign for packages for neighbors anymore, because I had negative experiences with it in the past...well, somehow I happened to do this yesterday. I didn't really have a choice. But now they don't come and pick it up... <.<
I already wanted to bring it to them, but they are never at home... and I put a note in their mailbox, just in case the postman forgot about it.
Meh x.x I just wanna get rid of it. It's not even small... it's annoying to have it here. Even if I don't want to, I'm involuntary waiting that they come and pick it up... o_o This is psycho terror for me... this might sound a bit over dramatic, but I really hate waiting x,x Especially when you don't know when someone will arrive or when something is going to happen, you just know that it should happen.
This is like a punishment or something to me. ^^ Reminds me of the horrible on-call duties I had back then in my old job.
Oh, and I don't wanna open the door in my worn out pajamas... but I'm still sick, I wanna wear them. ;_; *throws the stupid package out of the window* Don't order stuff when you're not at home for several days. >.< I'm no post office. I'll seriously freak out when they don't pick it up tomorrow. <,< And I'll never do this again. (I also don't want them to take my packages... One time they gave a package to someone in a completely different apartment complex. o_o It took me forever to figure this out.)

Though on that note, I should warn people that some things might be "gone" though I'm not sure what all would be missing. (I can't see my icon right now but that could be my own slow connection.)

Ah, I thought my laptop was just crapping out again, but the forum was indeed down then? Yikes.

Not much is gone from what I can tell, although this topic got locked for most people? I assume it wasn't intentional so I'm deselecting that checkbox, I hope that works. If it was intentional, please feel free to correct me!

@Weisel: I can see your icon, so either that got fixed too or maybe your connection was indeed slow. I hope everything works for you now!

@Weisel
Yeah, it's back *_* Finally!
Ah, they said that attached pictures and stuff like that might be gone. And style changes. But the posts and threads should all be alright. As far as I can judge everything seems to be okay. Your icon is also there.

@listenforthelove
Yeah, it was gone for 2-3 days or so. The operator had apparently legal issues with their host and had to move all of their forums to another one...they had to move several thousand GB. I'm glad they could fix it.
Oh, no, thanks for unlocking. Btw a while ago there was also a locked topic and I dunno why it was locked. o.o That was before the servers were down...but maybe they already had some issues before? As long as it's just a locked topic it's not that tragic, though. :)

It's back! I was surpirsed when it was suddenly gone. But I'm glad everything's still here and all. (I don't know if anyone remembers ... I forgot the name, never mind, but some free board service closing down. At least they warned and gave out back ups but there was one board I was on with and it was not so much fun to move EVERYTHING on our own to a different provider. Not much fun. So I suppose it's quite nice of the provider if they actually moved all their data instead of making people do it themselves.)

@Ahiku
I hope you were able to deliver that package by now. I assume you don't have a phone number to call? That's what I'd try if they're never home. If they're never home at all, I assume the mail box would be overfilled as well? What I used to do in such cases (when I wanted neighbours knowing something as soon as they come home) is a post it on eye-level on their door. Can't be overlooked, not even if you're tired or drunk when you come home. Or even more extrem over the door lock, so they're forced to take it if they wanna get in.

And yeah, I'm not that giant... The numbers are the snowboard heights, mind you, not mine. ^^ (And I also have big feet, so I'd prefer one on the upper side of normal height and thus be a little wider to give me good leverage.)
Anyways by now I'm just gonna wait and see. Maybe I'll wait another season after all, if I'm lucky I could borrow a board to go for a day or two this winter.
I did see another nice one when I was in Germany on Friday, but again, tallest one was still a tad short.
If I'm very very lucky I might also find something at the very end of sales before they pack all the winter stuff away again.
As said before, in the end, it is a luxury thing to have and not a necessity. (But it's something I enjoy since I live in a mountany country and have the opportinity to make use of it even on a whim - I have several ski resorts within a relatively short amount of travel.)

On a note of winter sports... The snow here is again melting. This winter so far really has been... extremely warm. Though I hear it's not much different in the US at least along the eastcoast.

Does anyone else here enjoy winter/snow sports/activities by the way? (Any kind, not just ski or snowboard!)

@Kai
Urgh, good that they didn't do it like that. ^^ That would have sucked a lot. (And they wouldn't have contacted me, they would have contacted Yuneyn, since she created this forum. But she's atm a little bit occupied. :D)
Well, it's great that it's back and I hope this won't happen again. >,<

Ah, I finally got rid of that packaged...yesterday evening. So I had it like 5 days or so. <,< Their mailbox was overcrowded and even though it's a very good idea to put a sticky note on their door or lock, I couldn't do it. They live in the other house...and I didn't want to ring there and ask one of the other neighbors to open up, since I don't know them at all.
Well, they finally picked it up and I won't take another package ever again. x_x

Ah, I see. XD I have no clue in regard to snowboards and stuff like that. I'm horrible at these kinds of sports. x.x (Everything with ski, boards, and all kinds of skating is nothing for me. >_<) Oh, but when I was a kid, I liked to sledge and to build cool snowmen... :D But I guess almost every kid likes stuff like that.
Yeah, the winter is too warm. We had lots of snow yesterday, but it was very warm and most of is melted away...

Infortunately, here in Florida winter sports are nonexistent. it's 48 F right now and that's probably the lowest I've seen it get this year. I've never even seen snow.

As for the locked topic, I can't be sure if it was my fault, but there's a possibility it was me. I'm usually on here using my phone, so I'm using a touch screen for zooming and scrolling and sometimes I click the wrong thing by accident. I'm generally careful not to check any of those boxes when I post... So maybe it's not so mysterious, or maybe it IS mysterious. We'll never know!

Hi^^


Just happened to pop by, sorry the board was gone for a time... I didn't get any email or anything warning me of this (I actually wouldn't have know if you hadn't mentioned it here), so it must have been unplanned on their end. If I ever get any notice that they're going to close or something I'll definitely at least forward it to Ahiku so that you can do something about it... (Hopefully they'll give a few days notice, because there will definitely be a few days soon when I may not be quite available) Well let's just hope it doesn't happen anyway !
How do you pick up the threads of an old life? How do you go on, when in your heart, you begin to understand, there is no going back?
There are some things that time cannot mend. Some hurts that go too deep... that have taken hold.

@Yuneyn
Ah, no need to be sorry that the board was gone, it was not your fault. :) And they didn't even inform the admins who are paying for their forum since it was definitely not planned. I just suppose that IF they inform someone, it would be you, since you made this forum and used your e-mail address for it... but I guess since they copied everything to another server, they don't plan on giving up their forum webpage yet.
(I guess if it happens we can't do that much about it anyway x,x Unfortunately. Unless they really give us the data then...)

@Weisel
Ah, I see. Haha, I didn't consider that this could happen when you use a smartphone. I don't have one, so I never consider it, haha. XD But it's no problem, we can just open them again...It was just weird, but it's good to know the cause.

Lol I remember the first time I accidentally locked a topic... I didn't know they could be unlocked so easily so I panicked, but my cat just stuck her little paw on the trackpad on my computer and locked it and I was like "no one is going to believe this." But this time it's probably just my thumbs. I can click everything way too easily on my smartphone.

On that note... I might finally be able to get wifi next month! Hallelujah! If that happens then I'll start doing live streams of No.6. Yaaaay internet party!!

@kare_reiko I still have to see about setting up wifi for my house, so I'm not sure when I'd actually be able to do that. Once I have everything set up for sure, I'll see about setting up a schedule that fits most people's schedules. I'm thinking of running each episode twice a week, so that would cover more schedules. Definitely a weekend one in there. I'll open up a thread when I can definitely do it to discuss schedule options further, and we'll probably post something on the RC blog so more people can join!
