Learning that ''one of us'' has passed, toughts are to OsuDenny, his family and to all he's given to the themed park online community.


Sad news, had no idea.  He will surely be missed.


And I just woke up and am getting ready for work soon, but its Friday!

I managed to ride every single coaster in Cedar Point in one day. Even the mine train. Okay, not including either of the kiddie coasters. Hopefully you don't count fast passes as cheating, because otherwise it would've been mostly impossible without a whole lot more careful planning than I'm up for. (Steel Vengeance, Maverick, and Valravn were the worst lines. Top Thrill Dragster was a 5-10 minute wait with it, even shorter than the day it broke down and reopened just when we got there. Gemini had almost no wait ever and was way too much fun, I must've ridden that at least five or six times.)

... okay, that's almost a week ago now. Glad to be back, though.

I'm trying to get into streaming, but on the worst internet connection in my area and with a laptop rather than my gaming PC. I've been back at home from Uni for 2 weeks, and I want to go back already just for the internet (but there's more interesting people and things to do for the Uni factor) ...

In the meantime of prehistoric internet with appalling lack of support from my family's provider, I'm watching football (sorry, Soccer ...).

Sounds like so much fun, I haven't been there in ages, like pre-Millenium Force era.  I only remember riding Meanstreak(no longer there), Iron Dragon, Gemini, and Magnum Xl-200.  I want to go back someday, but its just not doable at this time in my life.

Here in Oregon, we vote entirely my mail (or drop-off box). Rather than returning the ballot through the mail, I usually slip it into in one of the designated drop boxes (which I did last Friday). The nearest one to me is about a mile away, and I enjoy walking there- provided the weather is nice. If the weather's lousy, I just mail it. But I don't like the idea of having to use a postage stamp to mail in a ballot; seems like a poll-tax to me.

Absentee (mail-in) voting seems to be growing throughout the country. I wouldn't be surprised if all states switch to mail-only voting in the near future, like we did here. The reason we switched to vote-by-mail is because more and more people were voting by absentee ballot instead of going to the polling places (easier and quicker for the elderly, busy people, etc. to just mail in their ballots). It costs the state more money to maintain both methods of voting so we (the voters) voted to make vote-by-mail official. You also don't have to worry about voting machines not working, polling places not being open when they should be, and in some areas, no paper trail in case a recount is needed.

I just watched the International Space Station go overhead about 10 minutes ago. I've seen it numerous times before, but it's been about a year since the last time.

Just moved back to Fla from Utah. Just me and my son. Got my fast ass computer back and as soon as i am mentally ready I will try and dive back into RCT3 and PC [at least it will be a distraction.....]

Not used to the hott humid weather after getting so used to Utah.....

At least I live only 40ish minutes from Busch Gardens Tampa!!!

Was recently released from the hospital where my heart rate would consistently drop below 30bpm within 5 to 10 seconds after a spike to 45/50 ish. Apparently my baseline heart rate is 44-48 and unusually low blood pressure... The VA doctors had little concern after an hour, however the nurses were adamant that I go get seen again... Gonna check in today at some point with another hospital just to be sure there is nothing dangerous about my situation.

Other than that I just got my Mighty Ducks Trilogy DVD set and my Chicago Blackhawks mini net and sticks for my son's first birthday! May still order a hawks jersey for him but that would ultimately be a waste since he would outgrow it rather quickly.... may wait till 2nd or 3rd birthday for that!

Sorry to hear of the health issues.  Hope you get things stabilized, and improved.

I just went outside (10:20 PM PDT) and looked at Comet Neowise in the northwest sky. Had to use binoculars though; too much light pollution in my area. If you live out-in-the-middle-of-nowhere, you could see it without binocs. Catch it while you can, it won't be back for 6,800 years!

Comet update: Same time as last night (10:20 PM); After locating the comet with my binoculars, I could juuust barely see it (including some of the tail) without the binocs. Seems to be about 20 degrees above the northwest horizon.

Good luck!

I'm slowly moving into a new role at work. Been here nearly three years. Working from home permanently too for now. Which is nice.
