    I liked all of the entries in that thread :) :toast:

    Going to miss those "stealth" giveaways and contests that Kreij hosted :(

    About 3 days left to get your name in for one of the PC's. Remember, it's free and meant to be enjoyed by the winner! LET'S SEE THOSE NAMES FOLKS!!!

    Haven't heard from him so it looks like he's giving the other participants a better chance at winning the EU PC.....

    @Vinska I will go ahead and admit it. your story brought tears to my eyes! No matter what you think, you're not a failure as a person! Thank you for opening yourself to us about something so personal!

    Completely agreed. In fact, Vinska, you should send the Christmas card this year. I'm sure his family would deeply appreciate the fact that somebody half a world away would remember him so fondly as to send a Christmas card to them. Of course, that's entirely up to you, but if it were me, I'd send one for sure, and anybody in my family can tell you I'm not one to send out Christmas cards.


    Does anyone else feel that, even with all this love in the forums, something's definitely missing since Dean passed? Moderator-ship and giveaways aside, his presence was deeply felt. Why does it always seem like the good ones are taken early and the evil bastards will live forever?

    I would say he could, but last I was told they were going through everything so his wife could eventually get out of that house. Since she lost both her son and her husband in the same house, seven years to the exact date mind you, I can't really blame her for not wanting to sit around with all those memories by herself!

    my step mom had breast cancer 3 times over the course of 10 years rounds of chemo basically obliterate her immune system so she gets sick offen
    my uncle had liver cancer and received a transplant
    and I personally had a golfball sized non-cancerous masses removed from my colon
    cancer doesn't fuck around kids make sure you get screened at least once a year

    Just got back off holiday which started only a couple of days after we got this terrible news, on a personal note, I would like to thank Norton, Rcoon and every member who has donated, supported and contributed to this fabulous effort, I know I have said it before but you guys are the very reason I came here and stayed all those years ago, there may be bigger sites out there but few have the community spirit we bring to the table.

    If anything else is needed for parts please do let me know, I don't have a lot lying around but I would be glad to donate what I have and if needs be I can always "acquire" some stuff. I won't put my name forward to run a rig as I do intend to join the crunching team this summer when I have some time to upgrade my rig and rebuild an old one that is overdue attention so I can contribute towards the eradication of this terrible disease.... thank you.
