It may just be me, but Ish has been AWOL for some time now. Does anyone know where he ran off to?

I still see him on IM pretty often, but not on the boards. Hey may be hiding in shame from his last aborted post in the 'Dragonsworn's First Marriage' chain, though.

Am I the only one who got to read that post? He DID have some valid points. He just got carried away in expressing himself.. I don't think that's the reason he's not active on the board lately.

Yes, Ma’Shiara, I believe you are the only one who read that post. I would really like to know what was said, but regardless it would be nice if Ish would come back.

I read the post, and it was something, let me tell you. He went off on me on IM that night in a similar vein. I'm thinking he had a really bad day and just needed to vent, but I dunno. He hasn't posted since, I dunno if he's still reading or not.

So, it was pretty serious then? Well, whatever happened it would still be nice to hear from him again. We all need to vent sometimes, and it is good to get it out and let it go. Brewing over it will not make anything better.

hahahahhaha

ohhhhh *blush*

Yeah, I went off. And yes, some of them were valid - but far and away the wrong place to post it, so it needed to be wiped.

As Ryan said, am around, talk to sweet Arty all the time. Just been very busy. Stupid this board lead to a job doing php/mysql, which is awesome, but very busy. I keep on redoing the dgn site, and then finding better ways to do it, and more cool stuff to add, so kinda taking a couple steps back for every one forward. Am still very much here, and still very much interested in the site.

It's also, hard to come home from a whack of work (which I love) and then do the same thing, but for myself. I haven't even had a chance to sit down with the new photoshop/poser/truespace, and let loose. That's usually the inspiration for me - when things start looking fugly. Sadly, I still like all of our sites.

Given - previous results - I am not a reliable guy. I can kick out a lot of content for awhile, do a lot of work, and then just kinda disappear. Given that, it makes no sense to make significant changes without a user-controlled content management system.

Don't get me wrong, I still love the sites, I still show it off to people - and it still looks great to me. A lot of inspirations... lack of traffic can be explained by DGN's not having updates, but still - we just haven't made critical mass in terms of users for it to be self-sustaining.

So, consider this Me and Arty's personal project. We're both very busy people, and we hope to get it to the point where it can be self-sustaining, as opposed to these cycles of activity versus long sabbaticals.

Sooner, rather than later. I still have a whack of code kicking around, the beta looks good, and new WoT and aSoIaF are an excellent impetus to move forward. Usually we November is our month, this time around - a little later.

Again, really next time... will find a better place to vent. Sorry to Dalthor and Mashiara again... (yes, I hate single/double quotes)

Ish

It's good to see you're still around Ishy.

No need for any more apologies.. once was enough.

Someone illegitimately cloned me? Aginor is affronted.

Are there any remaining archived meanderings of this less than perfect duplicate of The Great Lord's most Favored Madman?
