Amidst the mists and coldest frosts he thrusts his fists against the posts and still insists he sees the ghosts.

Woah! Now here’s a name I’ve not seen in ages! I sincerely hope that life is treating you well.

Hello also to StD and Jihadin, but most importantly to the CRASSUS ARMOURED ASSAULT TRANSPORT (peace be upon him).

@Albatross

I am alive, Been surviving a particularly nasty British Columbian winter, with my country putting it's pants on it's head as it tries to deal with the 'Rona. Work is scarse and I'm thinking about trying to find a new line of work.


Oh hey as a general note, anyone seen Cheesecat around these parts?

Great to hear from you too man, peace and love to you and your family, and I hope you guys are keeping well during all this madness. Which martial art?! I picked up BJJ during my time away from here and I’m (literally) head over heels with it.


@Shadowbrand - sounds like a tough time, keep your chin up lad! Sometimes it’s a lengthy road to figure out where you’re supposed to be (as it has been for me this past few years) but you’ll get there - what sort of thing would you like to do?

I mean, at this point anything that doesn't crush my soul quite like Linecook/Sous Chef work does. I've thought about trying to get into IT. Or looking into what kind of Trade or Construction groups are hiring.

I'm not sure if this is a reff to the ork term dakka and therefore slightly related to this site, but in the mass effect series there is a star system named dakka.

https://masseffect.fandom.com/wiki/Dakka

The articles says it may be named after a temple in egypt dedicated to Thoth, or it may mean someone on the ME design crew played 40k.

if it is i'm sure no one will ever admit the term came from 40k lest GW sue everyone connected with the ME series for every cent they ere made or will ever make...
