    Hi Gang, it's yer Ol' Uncle Kreij.

    Sorry for necro'ing this thread, but it's my thread so kiss my ass if you don't like it.

    I first wanted to clear up some rumors. It seems people have been wondering why I have not been on TPU of late and have conspired to tell the world of my demise. I present proof of this by submitting this picture from the internet ...

    The real reason you have not seen me is I have been working writing news over at NextPowerUp, which takes up a lot of my time and is considerably more interesting than hashing it out with you jack wagons.

    That, however, is not the reason for this post.
    I just wanted to let you know that I have received news that the cancer is back and I will have the pleasure of going through more surgery.

    They want me to have Cytoreduction Surgery followed by Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy. Google it ya lazy bastards.

    I don't want your sympathy, nor do I want anyone to donate body parts, I just would appreciate it if you would take a few minutes out of your busy schedules and make it a point to help someone in your local area who needs it. After all, that is what life is really all about.

    Carry on.

    First one means chopping tumor off, second means delivering hot drugs onto the site, intestine?

    Good luck!

    Yes 4Staff, that pretty much sums it up.
    But that is not the reason I will be having the surgery. This will be my surgeon -> Dr. Sharon Weber

    I may be old, but I'm not dead yet. lulz.

    Sorry to hear it Kreij, you have our sympathies regardless ;)

    This is a good reason we need more HCC GPU WU's, as there's obviously more work to be done.

    Glad you're still raising hell, all things considered.
    I'd offer sympathy and good luck, but you don't need them.
    You're one tough SOB and you'll make it through this fine, I can tell.:toast:

    Hope everything works out for you so you can get older and grumpier like the rest of us :p

    My parts are worn out so instead I'm sending out some good Karma to you that I've been saving for a rainy day. It's cool, I know where/how to get more :cool:

    Don't know if it's a possible option for you, but medical marijuana might help. Do some research, just a thought :eek:
    Good luck with whatever you choose to do :)

    Masturbation is the only way to cure Cancer. Ernest Borgnine said it was his secret to a long life and he lived to 95! I would post a picture of Mr. Borgnine for inspiration but, I think that would be counter productive to your "Treatment"........unless your into that kinda thing.......C'est la vie.

    As one of my hobbies is ancient history, I very much like your picture. :cool:

    But wasn't aware you 2 thousand years old! Must say you do look well preserved for your age. :eek:

    Seriously though, hang in there. :rockout:

    Hey Kreij, you got this thing! You are one of the reasons TPU has been such a great place for me to be a part of and someone I consider a great friend. I wish you the best of luck and look forward to meeting you someday when I make it down your way!

    Good luck K.

    In my sig you find the links to POEM@Home and Rosetta@home. POEM has GPU WUs and let's not forget Folding@Home having GPU work to run as well.
