    R.I.P Mike. I wanted to post a few days ago but I couldn't find the words. Thank you for your friendship, thank you for everything and especially thank you for just being you. I was always nervous around groups, even Atomicans and you were always one of the first people to talk to me at events and we'd chat about guitars, Sepultura and many other things. I also recall my wife not wanting to go to Atomic meets because she didn't know anyone, and you were literally the first person to approach her at the courty, welcome her and make her feel comfortable. I went to get us some drinks, got stopped by a few people who wanted to talk and when I came out the back of the pub you had her laughing her arse off and having a great time, it was a great sight to see. Talking to you at meets was always great fun. No judgement, no pretense, just an amazing, honest and great person to talk to. You and I didn't talk as often as we should have, but I wish I'd been able to spend more time with you. We spoke of going fishing at Bundeena for a day and having a relaxing time, it was something I was truly looking forward to. I was so happy when you asked if you could hire my business to take professional photos of you and your bike. I don't often get excited about shoots because they can be a little tedious, but I knew you'd love the shoot so it was something I was excited about. I knew just how much you loved your bike, and hearing you talk about how much you were looking forward to the photos made me incredibly excited also. I know we put it off because we were both so busy and then covid hit, but one thing I never told you is I actually went and scouted out those locations we spoke about a few times at different times of day because I wanted you to have the absolute best we could provide. I wanted you to have an amazing large photo of you and your bike you could proudly hang up in your home. I knew how happy you would have been every time you saw it, I can even see your smile. I finally got clearance to restart our business, my wife was asking me who we wanted to work with first and I knew instantly who that was. I was about to reach out to you when I saw the absolutely terrible news. You were always a great guy, you set the bar pretty damn high in that regard. I have many, many fond memories with you and I'll cherish these forever. I'm going to miss you, we're all going to miss you. Rest assured we'll never forget you either. To say you're sorely missed is putting it lightly.

    I've avoided posting here because I just didn't know what to say. Twinny was great. A great part of this place, fantastic wit, damn helpful (we swapped many a PM where he helped me get my home weather station posting to the web), just a great guy. I've been lucky enough to see a bit more of his life via Facebook and that just confirmed the type of guy he was. Such a loss to so many people, my heart goes out to those closest to him. I'm not going to say 'rest in peace'. If there is something after we die here, well Twinny won't be resting that's for sure.

    Only just found out about this. At a loss as to what to say. Had my disagreements with Twinny on the forums, but IRL her was a rock solid dude. Hope all you all you folks that were close too him are doing OK. This year just keeps piling on bullshit for people. RIP Twinny

    Maybe I'll try taking a break from the internet outside essential work stuff.

    Unless they put up some placeholder it'll likely be something like Server not Found. If they have a sense of humour maybe put up a search engine for "Guinea Pigs called _______"

    Sexual harassment can be pretty broad - a lot moreso than those two examples. Watching a boss not all that much younger than me leer over and give extra attention to some waitresses who were underage, and talk about what he'd like to do to them if given a moment, would in my mind count as sexual harassment, but not groping or rape. I still feel dirty from when he turned around and asked me what I'd do to her, as if I was playing along in his little game.

    Gonna be like that for me - I can't keep a schedule to save my life.

    So, um, is there a time specified on the 11th, or will it be we just attempt to login and find we can't ... personally speaking, that would be a very dismal way to end.

    When you beat him, do you exclaim "Let off some steam..." ?

    Hit me up if you want some of the colour codes used in the modern forum theme.
