Every time I'm reminded of this place and decide to check it out, I'm always worried I'll type in the address just to see that the site has been shut down. Makes me happy to think that this May is 11 years since I joined and despite the inactivity, it's still got a faint pulse.
Nearly lost my left hand a few weeks back; cut the back of my hand on a broken beer bottle while bartending and ended up developing severe cellulitis. Whole hand swelled up to look like the fuckin' hand balloon from spongebob. Went to the ER one day when the swelling was still relatively minor, sent me home on a low dose antibiotic. Ended up having to go back two days later for surgery after it tripled in size; apparently if I waited another day I could have lost the hand/dealt with the infection spreading to my bloodstream. Instead all I have is a nasty scar, so consider that bullet dodged.
Aside from that I'm doing great, and I hope whoever is still here is doin' great as well <3
