I hate making posts like this, because it just spoils the mystery of Lacie, but I believe I need to this ~one~ time.

I wanted to apologize to my students for my recent absense. I will be back this weekend *fingers crossed*, so get those reports ready!

Suffice it to say, I'm ~not~ 30 years old...hell, I can hardly remember 30. I started playing UL ... well, later than that. As a FORMER smoker, I have COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder). So, ok, that's like saying Lacie is a DreamSeer who can't catch her breath. Stop laughing!!!! :P

Because of this, I've been a bit under the weather... ok, Spring in Alabama means ~everything~ is in bloom. I love it... but my lungs are giving me fits because of it.

So why am I telling you all this?

#1. I'll be in the City this weekend. Meds are kicking in and I'm better.

#2. For the love of AIR, stop smoking! I switched to e-cigs and the doctors say it prolly saved my life.

#3. If you think you're smarter than me and think you can keep smoking, perform this simple experiment: take a belt and strap it around your ribcage, let a breath out and tighten the belt. Then... ~try~ to inhale. That's what COPD feels like.

Bah... like I said... I hate posts like this... and will be back full-strength this weekend.

Love ye all....

~Lacie~


Yay! Glad you are feeling better! We were concerned and were thinking of you.

Surgery went well and I seem to be recovering normally. Sadly, no game play until the maternal unit returns to her ship :(

We have internet! And got moved in... Kind of... I mean, all the furniture is here and in place, but damn. I never realized how much stuff my fiance and I have. Also, we've run into a few issues with our house that our builder needs to fix (or I will find out where they live and make sure they have the same annoying issues we do.), so that's going to take up some of our time I'm sure. And my new job is a little more physically demanding than I thought, so that's kicking my ass. I don't get home until around 10PM (EST), so my time in UL will be slightly less on weekdays than normal and I absolutely MUST be strict on the weekday time and Sunday night. I'll always have weekends off, but during the summer I'll have Friday-Sunday off. I think by the weekend things might get back to some resemblance of "normal". That being said, I might try to come in tonight for a little bit if I'm not horribly tired.

So, about two weeks ago now, one of my dreams came true and I got promoted from road patrol to investigations. Having the career that I've wanted since I was a little boy has turned out to be a bit trying. Between on-call and having to travel to the academy for advanced training, I'm feeling the time crunch. The training should be dying down soon-ish, but I'm also in the middle of a move, so the timing could not be more inopportune. Anyway, once my promotion goes through on the 2nd and I am fully off road patrol, I should have a lot more free time (getting home earlier, weekends and holidays off, etc), but I will be on-call. I said all that to say this... if you're in the middle of a conversation or role-play with Dimitri and he just poofs, don't take it personal.

All,

For approximately a week starting immediately, I'm going to be assisting a family member who just had surgery. I'm still going to be around just in smaller spurts and not 3-4 hour long segments. However I may also at times randomly go afk or exit game. Please don't be offended if that should happen.

Thank you for your consideration,

H

Headed south of the Equator for 8 days. I will be completely beyond the reach of anyone. I will be departing Sunday evening and back on the 13th. I will arrange with a teacher (soon) to handle any outstanding tasks while I am away!

-Lacie- wrote:So I finally get a doctor to actually take a look at me in the hospital, right? I mean it only took two trips to the hospital, and this last one took EIGHT HOURS IN THE ER TO BE SEEN! I explain in gorey detail how I was DreamStuck a long time ago and it's really pissing me off that me, a Master Teacher of Insight & DreamSeer extraordinaire, CAN'T FRIGGIN CATCH A BREATH OF AIR!

Argh.

Then I have to explain (in really long medical terms) what DreamStrike is and how I got it. They called the cops, of course... (there's an APB out for Kaer Gerroz, of course now...), then they get out the big machines, you know, the ones that bang and smoke and make all sorts of loud noises, and filled me with drugs that make your whole parts of your body burn for a while. They took pics of me that I wouldn't want published on the Internet....

Ok ok ok, long story short (like a DreamSeer can ~actually~ do that)....

I FINALLY got the meds I needed and asked for (from another doctor, that I've been taking for YEARS and NOT narcotic, mind you...) and sent me home! So thank you, Doctor X for FINALLY listening to me!

So I'm home, resting and taking meds. And while I'm here, lemme bitch about one more thing (feeling better, huh?). ObamaCare sucks tomatoes! Before that crap, I had a job, insurance and a retirement plan. If I wasn't as strong and otherwise healthy as I am (which is what the tests showed), I wouldn't be able to be here AT ALL! And yes.... I read the ObamaCare Bill, start to finish! It's a total con-job! Don't believe me? Fine. Read it yourself.

GO TRUMP! God's speed and many blessing on you, your family, Congress & the Senate!

Right, so as for my absense.... I should be around tonite (hahahaha, DreamSeer, short story....hah!)

~Lacie~


Get better soon! Been having medical spats too. No, not mental spats. :| Being misdiagnosed for 13 years sucks! No wonder I always felt like shit! So I hope it all works out for you and now that you claim your political stance, I think we are starting a new beautiful friendship! :lol: #TrumpNo.1

Sounds horrible Lace, but I'm glad you're feeling better.

Dreamstrike should be renamed into vacationstrike.

So firstly, ask your son to set up an FTP filedrop somewhere, he should know what that means, if not, we have bigger issues. Secondly, share link to said file drop. Third have aforementioned son grab ISO and DVD-USB tool from that file drop...because I'm certain someone will upload them. Create bootable Win7 Ult USB, insert aforementioned USB into usb port of laptop...restart laptop, use break sequence (Varies by manufacturer) set laptop to boot from USB....install and enjoy!

If the laptop was deleting when you punched it, it is possible that the platter or the read/write head got damaged. If that's the case, a reformat won't help. The laptop may have boot diagnostics that can help you determine if that's the case or not.

Don't shove anything anywhere....please...dear gods...it sounds like a drive failure or possibly motherboard, but more likely drive. Hard drives for those things are dirt cheap. You can likely find one on amazon

I may need you to walk me through this to get my fancy pants laptop that died a little while back running again. I know it was just the HD. As soon as I buy a new HD we can try this. That laptop is way too nice for me to just toss. But what I'm reading here is like a foreign language.
