Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

Needless to say, I'll be kind of inactive on EGF for a while. Don't know when/if I'll come back. I appreciate all of you: Your forum, and its archives/wiki, though you didn't know it, has helped me through these times. Thanks.

I'm really sorry to hear that, its not an easy thing to lose someone that as wonderful as that. So, do what's best for you right now, evageeks will still be here when you're ready to come back. May your pain and suffering fade with time, but her memory never be forgotten.

I don't know what I ate, drank, or did last night to deserve this, but my brain feels like it's melting.

I tried to post something earlier in the day but I didn't find the right words, and I still don't have them now. Just take your time, we'll wait for your comeback when you feel it's time to post again.

Thank you all, for your kind words. I know intellectually it'll just take time, but... it's SO hard. I have this hole inside of myself, that feels like it won't ever be filled.
I'm sure she'd be happy to know I read these.
Great community here, and I do hope to be back. I'll probably read through my subbed threads, though. It's a great distraction, to the extent that that sort of thing helps, anyway. Thanks again!

This has hit the newswires already, so I'm not letting any secrets out when I say that there is a major restructuring going on at my place of work.

This time I'm actually one of the many people whose position is "at risk", which means that there are going to be a couple of months while all the legal process goes on, before I get shown the money and the door. That's a couple of months when I'm still supposed to be being productive -- just when the components I'd been working on for the past decade got handed to another team, without any new stuff being lined up yet, and morale all around will be lower than a snake's belly. What joy! :rolleyes:

Just found out a few days ago through a couple of BSOD that my computer's hard drive is failing, and a few other components are getting iffy. Thankfully nothing's been lost and I got everything onto one of my external drives. Still, dropping $1,200 on a new laptop was something I was hoping to avoid for a few more years, but at 7 1/2 years old, 8,204 power ups, and 736 odd days of uptime, it was going to happen eventually, I was just hoping it would hold off until Windows 7 was unsupported by Windows, cause I really like Windows 7.

That sucks I hope your brand new computer gets to you to soon I think its also worth buying an External Hard like a terabyte's size and backing up weekly as it means if you ever get this again all your main files are backed up and its just a case of copying over. ^_^

I've done plenty of these, so just some friendly advice. Look over everything in the morning, stay calm, and you'll do fine. When you start to freak out is what will mess up your focus.

So, may the Force be with you.

Did all I could do. I just hope it was enough. Doesn't make the feeling that I could have done more go away though.

You can't change anything now so you should just try to let it go and relax.
