    Well, well, fucking well.

    How good is the facebook group? Fair bit of reconnecting, a good amount of capital japes, and whole bunch of people pointing at each others photos saying "wow... didn't you get fat!". Fun times, if you're not there - you're missing out. I mean, sucks the forums are shutting down - but only in that hoarder way where you hold onto things that you haven't used in years but only kept around in the hopes that someday you will use it again. I did check in from time to time, but it was mostly a bunch of uninteresting people arguing about mostly uninteresting shit. You'd get the urge to wade in again, but then ultimately - for what? I was bored when I swung by, why take it out on the others doing what comes naturally? But, Atomic? That place was fun. Oh so much fun. A thread could fall off the front page of TGR within 15 minutes, such was the level of engagement. Social media managers today would give their left testicle (or ovary) to have the level of engagement today that Atomic had back then. But, that is the Atomic that holds such a dear place in our hearts (even if we say/said it doesn't). To kiss and be kissed, the fucking and the get fucking, the drinks, the fights, the creativity that was ultimately the underlying cause of the fights (because lets be honest - we all enjoyed a creative flame war), and the meatspace nights that ended about 2 - 3 days later with this strange pain in your jaw. That was the underlying charm of days long gone by that has brought folks back to eulogise a place, a roast even, if you will, as the inevitable end closes in. Because, and I’m being real here, the age of the forum in people years? Well – lets just say it would have died a few weeks back in an anglican nursing home. So cheers to those who made it what it is. Cheers to those who went above and beyond. Whoever it was who made those Atomic case badges – I still have them today. And whoever the legend was that made those beer steins and shot glasses, I owe you a beer you sexy, sexy person. Cheers to the Canberra Crew, cheers to the cunts that we don’t speak (or take photos) of, and cheers to the awesome people dispersed around the world that have been great nights out, great hosts, great guests, and the weird fucking bearded taxi driving cunts that you pay in snot blocks. If it wasn’t for Atomic, you’d never have gotten the opportunity to meet me, and for that you’re all truly welcome. And I reckon you’re all pretty ace too Cheers to the staff who churned out content and gave us a reason to get together. Stepping into each others shoes, replacing one another in the merry go round of editors, writers, staff. Each time it was a big set of shoes to fill, each time you kept the engine moving. Especially this one long haired git who trusted me to stand behind the bar once or twice while playing cards, or games that I somehow managed to get knocked out in the first round only to spend the rest of the night bullshitting, drinking beer, and eating pizza. <Aside> True story. I went to an event one night in North Sydney, not long after returning from training in Thailand and just after busting my knee. I was on crutches. The holy water you served that night had me walking without crutches on the way home that night. And, just like our long haired, sandal wearing, Arabic friend, it took me 3 days to rise and walk again! </Aside> Cheers to the event staff behind the scenes. Some of the loveliest people I’ve ever met. You guys didn’t know us from a bar of soap, except for our behaviour when we showed up to events. And despite this, you still sent out invitations to us and greeted us with open arms when we showed up. I know events, I know there’s a public face you have to put on – but that shit was real. I haven’t heard from Taline in years, but she’s a fkn legend. I think that’s it, yeah? That’s gotta be everyone on the list worth mentioning… </cheekybaiting> Finally, thanks to Atomic for introducing me to some shithead kid that I couldn’t fkn stand. Thanks also to Atomic for introducing me to this lovely Taswegian woman who took the time out to show that the aforementioned shithead kid was (granted still a shithead but…) worthwhile knowing. That kicked off one of those friendships that start out as one person not thinking about the other that way before life and relationship changes lead to a perfect opportunity for one to tell the other how they feel and, just like a Hollywood movie, the music swells and a lifelong partnership is cemented. I mean, it rarely happens in real life (sorry buddy), but it does happen. We've laughed, we cried, we've travelled, we spent a home deposit in keeping you fed and liquored up at our wedding. I mean, we bought a place a few years ago. I guess you could say that shit's getting serious. All in all, I guess, what I’m trying to say is: Cheekychops Roxors My Soxors. So, pop into the facebook group and click “maybe” on the next event. No judgement, we’re all doing it. And if you’ve got some sort of inexplicable aversion to doing this, just know that, to date, no one has been able to accidentally launch any missiles by clicking on a profile. No one has been able to post a happy birthday only to watch a marriage spontaneously combust. You’ll be fine, you’re not that important to trigger a FBI manhunt just by sharing a spicy meme stolen from reddit. And besides, reddit is for shitposting and trolling, which – fucking brace yourselves – is likely to occur in the Atomican subreddit. Now, who else has a video of a bunch of old blokes taking a piss in the downstairs bathroom (watch those steps, I hear they’re a trip hazard) of the old Paddy’s in the city? What’s the going rate on TMZ for wrinkly old man cock? tehJuggs.

    Well, well, fucking well.

    I see someone has been allowed to have emotions again... >_>

    The Atomic era concludes and we were magnificent

    One of those alts we're apparently not allowed to talk about.

    What's on your mind?

    I reckon it might be. Only thing worse than a project manager is those fucking ITSM wankers they hire who read the books but never worked a real day in their life. And i'm surrounded by both!

    I mean, I could give birth to an absolutely monstrous project manger. If that's what you're after?

    It's time to spill your guts

    I have to admit that my mind always read Elven as Eleven. And then Stranger Things became a thing. And then someone linked me to CDAN at work, and so i started reading that. And now I'm back here and I see ElevenWhore and I'm all "it might be time to stick a pin it it".

    You have a gimbal worth more than more than a couple of my guitar pedals. Don't be shy!

    Atomic Origins

    1.4 tbird (pencilled) NFI about ram/hdd/etc GF2MX400(? sounds about right?) Grabbed a HX08. Some thermaltake(?) wc kit i picked up from someone cheap at a lan. Black and red spray paint. Case window. a "ThunderTube" 12v "lightening rod" that i removed the mic from the casing and hooked up to a headphone jack to get pulsing sounds based on the sound card (so much so that I was complained about for cheating at a CANCON before it moved to EPIC). And a CRT heavier than your mum HEYOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    Went to bump my POTM, but not even way back machine has that archived (2004). Go nuts. You gotta share or it's lost.

    But for what? And who cares? This is a living wake where people tell stories about the past, and in this one instance - there is a reply. How about let people do that. It's not as if discussions are being drowned out.

    Don't know if how often, if ever, I've posted this here. And even if I did, it definitely hasn't been enough. Love you @CheekyChops. Can't wait for what comes next.

    Chaos, don't be an old fuddy duddy. Atomic is ending, people are finally coming back and getting involved. Now is not the time to flex your "powers" to the world. People should be encouraged to post and resurrect the fond memories they have. Not be chased out by someone with a stick up their arse. You'll still have your kingdom of nothing in a month, let ppl have fun.

    Doubt mine will be either.
  20. This has been my preferred method of working for quite some time now - home or other remote site. What this has done is made my colleagues adapt to this way of working, making my life significantly easier. Only downside is that my workload has somewhat increased, but that's a product of the times - would be the same whether I was at home or in the office.

    Well, well, fucking well.

    Would you, like... marry me? Like the epileptic oyster farmer who shucks between fits, or the hooker with dysentery?

    The big day

    Yes eveln, we have already established that this does not affect those who remained logged in. Hence my ability to post from another device with those accounts. As stated, this appears to be an issue when logging in.

    The big day

    Logged out as Juggs, tried to log in as JS, got told my Username or password is incorrect. Tried Juggs again, no dice. Cheeky tried to log in, same again. I should point out that i'm on my ipad and that it was logged in beforehand... I was attempting all of the above on my laptop, that had Juggs logged in initially.

    While there are more variables then I'd like, the plan is to go. Rob. One thing i know as truth. If you want it to happen badly enough, it will happen.
