    What's on your mind?

    Reformer classes are my gym exercise of choice. I don't know where you went, but at Virgin Active they make you do at least five beginner classes first. It was a PITA because they only ran the beginner classes at WTF o'clock on a Saturday morning or one weekday when I had to be at work.

    For our fallen brethren

    It's quite surreal. Just gone. Just like that. Vale Twinny

    I know a certain mod who could do with one of these.

    I accidentally thought you were The_Salty_Peanut in a photo I posted in the Facebook group last week.

    Something I have never grown bored of in the 30 years since it was released as a B-side.

    Atomic Origins

    It was 2003. I was a 31yo single mother with a 7yo daughter. I was beginning my studies in IT - Cert I (yes, you read right) which was a basic class mostly filled with seniors. There was a link to Atomic in a list they gave us for places to go for technical help. I came, I saw, I stayed. I ended up with a Diploma in Systems Administration and a Cert IV in Network Support and was very present here during those years. However, when Ben passed Atomic on and traffic waned, I waned with it. I moved on and never did do much with my technical qualifications. When I joined I had a Pentium 4 1.6GHz. I can't remember the rest of the specs but they were basic. I was never a gamer. You can look at my tag line to see what I have now. Meh.

    It's time to spill your guts

    My tally is a big fat zero, except for my now ex-husband, but I introduced him to the place after we got together so that doesn't count. Just think, if even one of you ever kissed me before I met him then my life might have been so much better...or worse. Maybe I should never dwell on that thought!

    Well, well, fucking well.

    How did we used to say it...QFT. Yes, that's exactly how it is. It's the edgy, dynamic and sometimes politically incorrect commentary that made this joint move. We spoke unabashedly in here, and sometimes the words offended our sensibilities, but when we met in person we were friendly. Mostly. I can't speak for everyone. Those times were great and I suspect will be some of the last we lose to dementia.
  13. My primary thought is whether the church has done a real number on you or the schizophrenia would have appeared anyway. What I can be sure of is that there is no spiritual entity responsible for any part of your life and you are neither at fault for the events that occurred to others that you seem to blame your self for, nor is hell coming to you or anyone else. Unfortunately I have seen many people turn to religion when their mental health has suffered. They need something to hold onto, and the church is very happy to milk it. I really hope you find a way to manage your condition with as little trauma as possible in the future. As much as I disdain organised religion and am inclined towards atheism, I can't imagine living with the sorts of thoughts bestowed upon you.

    Come for a walk down memory lane...

    I think the destruction event Cheeky is partaking in may have been at BaiLAN.

    Why can't I give this multiple props?

    I was in my early 30s and I cringe at why posted too.

    Wow. I have no memory of that and I don't make it to anywhere near a 46. Wow. I don't even know why I would say I was LOL *edit* I didn't read the full OP. 2 points per yes. I would say I'm still a 46 then. I haven't done any naughty things since that post which I hadn't tried already

    It's time to spill your guts

    I have this vague memory of creating an alt for a specific post, but damned if I can remember what it is or what it was for. I can't even be sure that it isn't a false memory. I don't have any other confessions. I'm just boring and getting old.

    Hmmmm...I'm going to have to think about this one.

    I wonder if we'll see Virtuoso drop in...

    Got H?

    Oh once great green land How sparse you've lately become Now waits barren voids So sad to see you go, Atomic. We were all beautiful when we were young.

    The world has moved on. All things serve the beam. Luckily most of you are on Facebook and the Reddit group sounds good. Thanks for the 19 years Ben. They say all good things must come to the end.
