    So Yahoo has decided to not only discontinue it's Groups pages, but to delete all history data, posts, and files.

    Email games going back to 2001, including the game I extrapolated stories of Orrobahk and Leothold from in the old Assignment thread, and several other years-long games. No way I can go through it all and save the stories/adventures.

    ***- some stories/posts from guys who have passed away as well.

    perhaps contact customer support and see if they can export the information for you?

    Longshot I know but emphasize the stories/posts from folks who have since passed away...

    i can remember a few who i haven't seen for so many years.

    I think that occasionally, too, but that's something you shouldn't have to ponder too hard til you get a few more years behind ya.

    Congrats? Looks fine... I'm just leery of needles... touching me... with the pointy end. *shudders* Actually I don't like the idea of anything piercing me. No earrings. Nothing. I'd make a terrible adventurer. :/

    Tomorrow is my birthday. I'm going to be 40. I am just now beginning to understand the consequences of not having children till I was almost 30.

    HB! May you fare better thru your 40 than I did. 30 sucked for me. 40 was worse. ... and we don't speak of the other.

I said that to one and she replied "I don't want to waste my life with sleep." Fundamental difference of perspective right there.

    Most of my friends, their kids are in highschool or have graduated already. Heck one of my daughter's closest friends, the girl's grandmother is only 5 years older than me.

    There are other consequences but they're too personal to discuss.

    And thank you for the birthday wishes.

    yeah i'm no fan of needles either, but hey, once it's done it keeps.

    happy birthday!

    at least you didn't wait till you were 40, unlike my parents. they're both in their 60's and i'm just finishing college.
    not a good feeling.

    Yeah. I wouldn't have put it off that much longer. My maternal grandmother was the youngest child of 14 siblings. She was a twilight-years' surprise. There was 13 or 14 years age difference between her and her nearest sibling. My great-grandmother had just turned 50 only to discover she had one last baby on the way. My grandmother almost didn't make it, she was premature and barely weighed 4 pounds. She told many stories about growing up with very elderly parents (her father was more than 20 years older than her mother) and how she was always afraid to go to school because she was concerned something would happen to them in her absence. Her dad lived to be over a hundred, though I don't know exactly how much over and her mother died, of heat-stroke of all things at her 100th birthday picnic.

    I may not remember all the details of my grandmother's stories, but I definitely got the gist... kids that grow up with much older parents can have an unnatural awareness of mortality that may sometimes hang like a cloud over their childhood.

    Similar-but-different I imagine to those who lose a parent at a young age.

    Halo Reach comes out on PC on Dec 3, as part of the Master Chief Collection coming to PC.

    I am so excited.

    Fun fact. it costs $40 in the US.
    But in India, it costs Rs. 900, or approx $13. Aw yiss.
