Hi there cititizens of Rubi-ka. It has been quite some time since I last stumbled by to say hi.

Thought id check in a bit, and wave to those that still remember me, and wich are still around.

So, I have totally quit Scrabble finally. I still must say, I probably had more fun in that game, then in AO unfortunally. But it still sucks. I have totally stopped playing all forms off online games. Since I dont have the discipline to keep it to a sane level, and my RL life was starting to take damage of it. I still feel the urge to download AO client, and be a froob now and then. More then I feel like going back to Scrabble, even tho I had more fun there. Wierd, but I guess it is this guild that kinda makes AO > Scrabble for me in the long run.

Anyway, as I said. I quit Scrabble about three months agoo. And I feel like a drug addict that has been sober for some time now.

Thanks to intense training and working alot I dont suffer to badly tho. And I have gotten into a new addiction. A "sport" (non competative), that is called "Le Parkour". Its about moving effecient and fluidly from point A to B in an effecient and fast way (backflips etc belongs in something called "free-running", just to clear that up). Its awsome training. Its fun, and is has a philosophical aspect to it, that has kinda changed my views on life. So, yeah I guess im the typical addict. I move from one addiction to another :)

Atleast this addiction is for me a lot more healthy then computer games.

Anyway, enough rambling about me and crap. I initially just came thru here to say hi to all good mates still in Rubi-Ka. I wish you all the best, and im sure ill pop by sometime again.

Stay Omni, and see you on the flipside!

Hey Thorb, glad you quit Scrabble (I love actually typing 'Scrabble' due to the forum editing) and glad to hear from you.

It'd be awesome if you came back as a froob sometime, but it's glad to hear that you're doing something else besides online gaming right now. Stay in touch :D

Thorbius!!! Really great to hear from you again! :)

Good for you for quitting Scrabble... and Scrabble @ your new addiction. I've heard of parkour / seen videos before, and it's some pretty crazy stuff!

If you do end up logging in a froob sometime in the future, definitely let us know. ;)

P.S. Opi, I have no idea what you're talking about. What's all this about Scrabble? ;)

My new addiction, as you probably have heard, is photography. Started more or less when my girl friend broke up with me a month or so ago and I needed a new hobby to take my mind of things. Don't feel the urge to play AO at the same extent at all anymore, altho it depends on summer being on its way and a lot of changes happening irl with moving etc as well. But the good thing with OO is that we can still be in touch and laugh about things even if you happen to be gone for quite some time, we're like family :)

I just looked up what Parkour was... very awesome.

I've actually seen a ton of vids of it last year, but I remembered it only as free running and something else. Didn't know it had a more formal name :wink: Very cool stuff Thorb

Hehe, after popping by to say hi and all, I decided Id download this damn game. I just have to log in to atleast check out the updates etc. I also noticed Pinder got my fixer to 200 hehe. I hope it got my token 1750 token board tho! :P

If not, I guess it wont matter, since I am really aiming NOT to get hooked again. Was so hard to quit in the first place. But I really really wanna do a run thru Rubi-ka, shadowlands again. Soo.. Im downloading the client now, and unless pinder changed the pass, Ill be online tonight. If he has, ill make myself a froob, and frown on noob isle :>

See ya soon. Even if it will be a short visit, it will be fun :)

Hehe nice. Hope to see you ingame soon! /tell Aoobot !join or !online and send a tell to someone if the guestchannel is being weird. Looks like it's been working perfectly normal lately though
