    Re: Welcome back....

    If you look at the list of mendhak posts

    http://www.vbforums.com/search.php?searchid=3074191

    you can see that over the course of 31 minutes on Sep 4 he made 5 posts in Chit Chat. Maybe he's back and maybe he's not or maybe he's just sort of back meaning he'll occassionally post. He's only made 6 posts total in all of 2011 on VBForums so far. He went one week under going 8 months without a post from Jan 11 to Sep 4.

    Maybe he's on a VBF diet and is trying to cut back.

    Re: Welcome back....

    I better remember since I started the poll. Only 5 members voted in the poll. I just looked at it and baja yu won(or voted the correct option) because he voted "mendhak will post sometime before 4 months passes", and the thread was started May 25. Here's the thread. akileshbc was farthest off voting mendhak would never again post.

    http://www.vbforums.com/showthread.p...hlight=mendhak

    It's sort of interesting to think about. Why do we like to post in Chit Chat or do anything. Desires come and go. New ones arise and others fade out or we determine to elimnate. Some desires you make up your mind to eliminate but are very stubborn and don't want to go away.

    You've won 5 million mogruls. Mogruls are a currency that is used in a solar system that is 123 light years distant. Just transport yourself there and collect your prize.

    I have become one of them. You know, like Peet and NoteMe and venerable bede. We go away, lock ourselves in a basement, living through pointless anime marathons and occasionally emerge in order to say something of little consequence. This is followed by speculation and once more, a disappearance.

    I had about 500 notifications waiting for me when I logged in. Did someone have something important to say?

    Also, when did Chit Chat die?

    Why hasn't anyone ever used one of those blue things from the movie as an avatar? That would be a nice little pun.

    Wait. Are we discussing Mendhak's Naval Discharge now?

    Welcome back to the master punster. Shaggy's done a fine job of carrying the torch in your absence but it's not the same.

    And Welcome back to OB. There hasn't been nearly enough rice on the forum recently.
