    Sporadic activity from me with the academic year starting, at least for the next week and a half.

    Reduced activity from me incoming, partly due to professional obligations (internship winding down) and partly due to coming start of the academic year. It will be gradual for the next few weeks but pretty pronounced after that.

    Engaging in similar operations to the previous two posters, also basic hurricane prep for home and possible call up from Florida Guard to do battle with Dorian.

    Meaning your gonna stand in the street drinking a beer waving holding that flag like a true Floridan as it barrels down upon you right?

    Good news: No kidney stones.

    Bad news: The first week after my holiday extremely busy again. I cannot RP today, and possibly not tomorrow, either.

    Out of town over the weekend. Will be back Monday night PDT, but I may post at nights depending on internet connectivity.

    Annual hurricane apocalypse season for The South, frantic preparations underway over the next days (hopefully unnecessarily, but better safe than sorry, as is said). Not quite as immediately serious for me as it is for Engellachia/Nilshanks, so reserve the majority of the well wishes for him as yet.

    Shouldn't affect my ability to post in the evenings too severely for another day or two, but I believe in advanced warnings. And saying something when it's actually on my mind, so I don't altogether forget otherwise.

    Seems like we will be fine, Dorian has rolled his eye elsewhere so we just have normal flooding concerns.

    Like I may have indicated earlier, I'm currently involved in a project at work that can be compared best with the delivery of an adult male African savannah elephant, with tusks. It will be difficult to me to RP this week. Expect limited activity.

    Furthermore, I won't be online this Friday (6 September) and this Saturday (7 September).

    Power has started to blink off and on a bit, hope it won't go out but have begun to expect it will. Phone is charged, but will be my only means of communication with anyone, period, so expect activity to be reduced to altogether nil for a few days. Have my next post concerning Operation Other Foot half finished, so will try to get it posted before I'm thrown back to the early 20th century.

    Unless I post that we made it through fine, in which case power won't have gone out.

    Power's back on, hurricane mostly blew through with a lot of rain and a bit of wind. Areas on the coast and in the Outer Banks got hit pretty hard, sadly, but also thankfully not us.

    Surgery was successful, more or less. I will be home from rehab on Monday. Don't know how quickly I'll be able to get back up to speed.

    Good to hear, buddy. CBS is right where you left it when you're ready.

    Firstly sorry for disappearing for a month. My holiday was very enjoyable and my parents flew over from New York to join me. I rarely get quality time with them so I chose to enjoy it. When I returned to Germany the reality of not being able to chill on a Portuguese beach hit me hard and work took up my attention, plus a good friend from the US was visiting. I should be mostly back now but this week is busy at the bank. Might get in the odd post here and there but most of my writing will be done at the weekend!

    Also glad to hear the hurricane mostly swiped you guys. I have grandparents and other family in Florida and I know how nerve wracking that can get!

    ISP issues, hope to have them cleared up tomorrow (technically later today).

    ISP dude is here, seems like I will get a new modem. Hopefully just that. Apologies to Engellachia, Lars, Strathclyde and Elben, responses forthcoming as soon as I can take my phone off the "only option for all communication with the outside world" list.
