    Have you ever spent time away from a computer and/or TB, like a weekend or so, and then when you come back and get caught up on threads that you're interested in, you see that each time you would have contributed some advice or a description of X somebody else has already posted the same thing you would've said if you had been participating in the thread as it unfolded in real time?

    What I do is I post in threads that I'm interested in, then when I come back each time I search my username to follow up, since I never remember what I've posted where. :)

    How did I get here you ask? Well that's a story for another day. :smug:

    I still say what I was going to say even if someone else said it. I add a wee bit more to it so it looks like I am actually adding something.

    To avoid getting behind at TB, sign up for the e-mail alerts to your cell phone when someone posts in a thread you do.

  7. I hate when people just post +1. Like I'm going to say oh look, fnderbassplayr778 agrees, that's good to know. Add some content at least.

    First person to quote this and post +1 gets a zillion witty points.

    A number I can't seem to reach....:(

    Don't worry, it's just the internet.

    TB wastes so much of my time, always checking that Stupid SX thread...just to see if someone has said the Stingray copies are out.

    I'll be smart and donate one of these days..I think I convinced my brother to do it for me, as he's just gotten in $55 for letting someone use his account in Diablo 2 (What?!)...but then the money went back into some trading forums. Man, he made more by doing that than I did working for 6 hours...
     
  14. Yeah. The internet. Nothing important there. Just my one contact with civilization. Just my one chance for happiness and a normal life. Just the place where I can try and vent my frustrations. Just the place where I feel welcomed. NOTHING THERE AT ALL!!!

    Uh, what were we talking about?

    Rock on
