The Absence Thread

Howdy y'all.

I've decided to start a thread to alert others of impending absences. I know that I've been seemingly random with them, and several other members of the Town have as well.

So, I'll just put it out there: I'll be over at a friend's house all of tomorrow, and part of today and two days from now, and starting this upcoming Friday I'll be flying out to a mostly computer-less family reunion in Tennessee for a week.

If anyone else has plans that others should know about, then post 'em here.
Darkblade

No real plans but there is construction on the highway near my house and for somereason this construction involves slicing my phone line often cutting me off from the internet anywhere from a few hours to a couple of days. GRR!!
Warpfire

I suppose I might as well note that I'm going to be gone from the 24th of June to the 7th of July. Heading out to the west coast....
J. Muller

I'll have spotty computer access from late June to mid-July, then no computer access at all from the end of June to late August.
Geomancer

My schedule is due to change at the drop of a hat. The only big absence is at the end of summer, but I shall not dwell on it.
Uberblah

Ahh... Perfect timing. I'm going on vacation starting this Sunday, the 17 of June, and ending Thursday the 21 of June. I will probably be back on Friday.
Wukei

Sorry to everyone that's missed me the last couple of days...I'm currently without a computer, and I've been borrowing my dads, so posting is not so assured...especially after the summer's over and he goes back to teaching. He needs his computer for class.

(did I mention my dad's computer has typing disabilities...it really doesn't like the 'a' and the spacebar...nor the right shift key)
NecroPaladin

Hey! Quick little edit: I've been moved back a day, so I have this morning and tomorrow evening.
Nevrmore

My schedule for work is really fuggin erratic, so I may be absent for god knows how long on any given day. Just so you know.
Obsidian Blade

Ah yes... for those who are unaware, I'm going through a really long absence from June 26 to August 15-19. I will be able to post within those times, but it will be extremely erratic. I think I'm doing pretty well right now seeing as I don't have a computer.
Deadly

I won't be as active this weekend and monday, and I probably won't be on at all tuesday. Last, and worst, exam.
Exachix

I will not be on during the weekend.

May be on friday afternoon... probably not.

Be back sunday... maybe very late.
Alarra

Not that I'm doing much....but I'll not be on this weekend. Starting today rather.
Timberwolf

I'm leaving for home tomorrow.

Back on Tuesday. Depending on how a certain meeting tomorrow goes, my posting may very well be dramatically reduced. Bah.
NecroPaladin

And I am leaving...now. See all of you in nine days!
NecroPaladin

Hey! Guess what? It's not much...but out here in the boondocks they have the internet!
Sophistemon

Well, there is no Internet in Amish country, so I won't be able to log on until Thursday of this week.

Sorry.
Geomancer

Necro: Woohoo!

Sophistemon: Awww...
Timberwolf

Further to my previous post, I am now moving home. Since my parents only have a 56K that you have to pay by the minute for, it would be most unfair of me to spend all my time on it. Therefore, until I can persuade my dad to get broadband (which he's thinking about), I shall not be around much.
Deadly

I seem to randomly lose my internet connection today, so that's probably the reason if I suddenly stop posting.
Moozy

I mentioned a while ago that my schedule will be very erratic over the summer: one week in July and quite a bit is scheduled in August, but for the most part I'll be free except for the occasional randomly scheduled thing.
Xaspian

Sorry that I didn't mention that I would be absent for a week or so. Several things came up, including an unexpected Wii, amoung other things. Oh, and our dog has been missing for 4 days now, so that too.

It doesn't help that I don't have easy access to the internet at the best of times...

Anyway, just to say that my posting might be erratic for an indefinate period of time. I'll try to be online as much as possible if I'm involved in something important, but I can't make promises.

Sorry!
Geomancer

I haven't been on much the last few days, and will be on less tomorrow. After that things clear up.
Kantur

Just to let people know - I'll be away from Thursday until July 14th or 15th.
Castaras

I sometimes forget about other forums than Giantitp.

So if there is an absence by me, and I'm on Giantitp, then it'll be that.

Absences...I'll not be here on July 14th. Sometime in August I'll be rarely posting for a week.
NecroPaladin

This has got to be the biggest hick town on the face of the earth. No offense to the state of Tennessee, but a man can only take so many ads for go-karts and mini golf. Thank God my uncle has a laptop...but even so, I still warn thee to not expect my posting to be regular.
Wukei

... *goes to cry in a corner for being born in a town like that*

And to think, we have a major University, here....
Timberwolf

Guys, guys, guys, please, a moment here.

I am going to be spending the next 10 months in my home town, a place that could give the most redneck town ever a run for its money. I will have a 56 K modem on a notoriously unstable computer to post with and a full time job.

I feel your pain Necro and Wu but on Sunday, all that you see before you will be mine.
Fenric

I will be out from Saturday until late next Wednesday. I cannot promise my participation on Friday or next Thursday, either.
Seft Sirag

I'm currently undertaking a 4-week (well, now 3 weeks 1 day) work placement (unpaid - mnargh!) as part of my degree course, and doing a dreadful, badly-paid, cleaning job on Saturdays, so contributions from me will, uh, remain around the 'not very much' to 'sod all' mark.

On the plus side, I now have a private internet connection again, so won't be randomly kicked off by The Brother or my folks when I do decide to contribute something.

Whilst I remember, first week in August I'll be away doing scout leader-y stuff (summer camp at an outdoor activities centre.)
Wukei

Sorry, I forgot about my dr's appt this morning...I'm still in town, so I probably won't be online tonight at all. (Thus the reason, also, why I'm not currently on MSN.)

I'll be back tomorrow, though! Watch out.

(Sorry to those of you I was roleplaying with last night...my dad just suddenly took away the computer. Which is his right to do. I'm not complaining, I get it most of the time.)
Uberblah

Leaving from July 15 to 21. No internets sadly.
Wukei

I'm probably going to be on and off quite a bit for the next few weeks. More off than on, actually. I'd just received new pills, and the doctor said it'd take 6 weeks to get used to...and it really is taking a toll on me.
Timberwolf

Greetings from Treacle Town.

just got in and my Dads 56k hasn't thrown me off yet. Exile commences and will end in 10 months time.

Bleh.
Vael

I um, just recieved a PM from Darkblade's account...
Quote:
Sorry this is Darkblades little sister. I have been told to post on the absense thread and I can't find it so I thought I could tell you. that he has been dragged to an asylum. He will not be posting on New town for a really long time.

From: Darkblades little sister ( Manal)
Geomancer

The above confuses and saddens me to no end.
Shadow of the Sun

Aye...it's never good when that happens to someone.
Moozy

I really, really, hope that's a practical joke from a sibling.
J. Muller

...Necro, let Darkblade out.

Darkblade.

If you manage to get this. Be well. Get better and out of there soon. I hope that you don't have to stay there for very long.

Please come back soon.

Coll.
Baeleck

Hmm... not good news. Darkblade, hope you're out of there soon. Well all be thinking of you, I'm sure.

Also: I will not be on as frequently these next two weeks as I am doing work experience. I may find oppertunities during the day to post, but these are likley to be short. I am currently at work at the moment. Also, that last weekend, I've got (another) expedition to the peak district, so i will be unable to post then.
NecroPaladin

Crap. Right when I get back, too...
Destro Yersul

Well that sucks. Be well, Darkblade.

I myself will be gone from Friday till... Next Friday. Vacation to places without computer access, in all likelyhood.
Moozy

Now that my schedule is a bit more ingrained, I can say more than just "irregular":

Next week, I will be gone from for about 3 hours Monday to Friday. This will happen for just this next week. Other than that, I will be extremely irregular during most of August, as I'll be on vacation and won't be able to get on at all times.

So I'm good for the rest of July (minus next week), and a week or two in August. Then a couple weeks in September I'm not doing much, but school starts in late September I believe.
Nevrmore

Can we get more info on Darkblade than that? That message is extremely ominous...
Moozy

Darkblade hasn't made a single post since Vael posted that message... I think we can safely assume it wasn't a practical joke, at least...

I'm going to go make a thread.
Exachix

On the 6th of July I will be dead for the night.
on the 7th I'll be on a hype from the night before. This is due to amazingness (Genesis) happening.

On the 4th of August I'll be going to a wedding. We're doing a beer run to Calais too so I may not be on on the 5th.

From the 24th to the 27/28th of August I'll be at Greenbelt (Christian Arts Festival at Cheltenham Racecourse, england). And there are Pcs there.. but I won't be on them.

That's all for now.
Vael

Okay, for the rest of the summer I'll be working from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM.
Oh wait, I already do.
And I have internet access anyways.
Nevermind then.
*runs around gloating*
Seft Sirag

Got my exam results back today & have found out that I have to repeat a year. As my characters aren't particularly integral to anyone's plot right now, I've decided to take an extended leave of absence. I will hopefully see you again once I've got things in order, but I have absolutely no idea when that would be.
Wukei

Good luck in everything, Seft.

*sigh* Yes, now in addition to some scheduled things, my schedule online will be (if possible) even more irregular than usual. I'm going to be on and off all day for most days for the rest of the summer, not counting scheduled things.
Gnrlshrimp

Lemme see...I'll be away from Sunday until Wednesday next week. And there are three weeks at various times through July and August when I won't be on at all. Not sure which weeks yet.
Geomancer

I will be out of town until tuesday. I have access to a computer and will be able to post some, but it will be sporadic and infrequent.
Uberblah

Leaving for camp on the 15 and coming back the 19 not the 21 as I may have said.
Baeleck

Just to say I'll be away from the 13th (this coming Friday - bad luck there =S) till Monday 16th. Then I'm back for the next four days before going away again for a week. Then back for a week. Then away again for a week.

I honestly have too many holidays =P.
Uberblah

DAMMIT!!! Now I'm going camping right after going to camp so I'll be gone from 15 till the 24 or sooner. Hopefully sooner.
Wukei

Tomorrow: I have a procedure I have to be at the surgery center for at 12 (1 board time). I'm not sure when I'll be back.

Friday: Dentist appt. 2 pm, but I'm having lunch with my boyfriend earlier. It's his birthday. I'll probably be on in the evening, though.

The 18th: an appt at 3:30 to discuss back related things with a dr that works with my dad. so I'll probably be on most of the morning and maybe back in the evening

22nd: opthamology appt at 2
Moozy

I'll be gone from today until this coming Sunday.
Xaspian

Away for 5 days, starting on the 20th.

And, as ever, my posting before and after that will be a little erratic.
Baeleck

I'm off in 5 hours, won't be back until Monday at the earliest. Then I have a few days, before going away for another week at the weekend.
The_Librarian

My posting's been getting increasingly intermittent, which annoys me no end! I always knew July was going to be bad, but this bad? Blech.

In short, I'll be doing the GitP meet-up tomorrow, I have a wedding to attend the day after, I techincally have a day off on Monday but that will most likely be used up in other ways, I have a house viewing on Wednesday, and possibly Tuesday as well, either Saturday or Sunday I'm attending Joust with local friends, the weekend after that I'll be doing it again with non-local friends and then, thank the gods, we hit August.

When we'll be starting to pack up for the move. We were given our 2 month notice so once again, we have to move home. This time, though, we're hoping to buy.

But yes, I knew this month would be bad, but my intermittent posting is going to be more the rule than the exception for a while.
Deadly

I'll be gone most of tomorrow, all of monday and I'm unsure about tuesday. I hope to be back tuesday, though.
J. Muller

Due to two long trips in quick succession, I'll be away starting Wednesday and ending at the end of August, with very few opportunities to get on in between.
Uberblah

In a few hours I go to work then I leave for my 10-day camp/camping trip. See you all on the 24th!

Oh how those words have bitten me on the ass.
Monday afternoon and evening, and for the foreseeable future, and including the house-buying etc., will be spent fixing my computer which, after 3 1/2 years of faithful service, gave up the ghost today.

Damn it all to hell. Am using a spare computer, but one not really ideal for prolonged use.

=S Get a better computer soon. One that works.

I'll be away next weekend =(.
Gnrlshrimp

Okay, from this tuesday I'm gone for almost a fortnight. And I'll probably be gone again some time in August.

AARGH! A fortnight without any access to the internet!
J. Muller

Well, tomorrow's the day. I'll be gone from then until late August. See you guys...
Orange Zergling

Looks like my computer is starting to die, certain programs keep saying "[Vital File] Not discovered - Reinstalling may fix this issue.", so my father is spending time trying to fix it. Because of that, I can not post during those times. Also, next monday through friday I probably can't post 7:30-5:30 Central USA time. The lab computers there may or may not block forums... hope not.
Exachix

From Friday at the end of this week I'll be away. I may not be on on friday.
Comming back on Monday; may be on late.
NecroPaladin

I'm not TECHNICALLY absent, but for the next few days my posting should be extremely sparse, as I have a lot of artwork to do. Damn art school...
Warpfire

I suppose now is a good time to note I'm leaving for two weeks on Friday. There's a possibility of internet access, but even in that case I doubt I'll be using it.
Geomancer

I'll be leaving for three weeks starting Sunday. I'll probably be able to make about a post a week during that time.
Damon

As you may or may not have noticed I have not been on at all this week. I've been staying at my grandmas beach house where their is no internet. Theirs hardly a TV. I'll try and stop in because we occationally stop by at my house, but this is going to be an issue into next week.
Vael

Ms. E will be absent for one week starting today due to the temporary ban placed on her for inviting someone without an administrator's permission.
Rebonack

I'm going to be gone for about a week one week from tomorrow.

Yar.
Nevrmore

Is it Death that was invited?

Also, that sucks because she was one of the only ones posting in Modern Town. Oh well...
Moozy

I'm going camping over this weekend, so I won't have an internet connection until late Sunday at the earliest. Leaving tomorrow.
Timberwolf

As of tomorrow, I'm gone until Monday.
Orange Zergling

And now another presumably un-authorized person signed up claiming to be a site owner...
My father is slowly getting my computer fixed, iTunes works again, as does Starcraft... AI is still not working, dunno 'bout other programs, but it's still an improvement.
Obsidian Blade

My freaking long absence is being extended again, as I just found out that:
a) My family decided to spend another three weeks or so travelling. Which is okay, except for no internet.
b)I won't be getting an internet connection until at least a week after I move into my house.
So... yup. Probably I'm looking at August 25. Damn damn damn damn damn.
Baeleck

Ok, so, I'm away from a week, starting as soon as I make this post, pretty much.

So, ciao for now.
Geomancer

Hey guys, Geo here. I'll leaving come sunday, but it probably won't be for just three weeks. It's going to be an indefinite leave of absence.
Nevrmore

Geomancer wrote:

Why?
Geomancer

Several things, but mostly my growing unhappiness with the town. Most of my plots have gone cold. There isn't anything keeping me here anymore.
The Chilli God

Yeah, the same thing is happening to me as well, though that's always happened to me.

But anyway, for the day after tomorrow and every weekday thenafter for roughly 9 weeks, I'll be cut to about half my usual posting prolificacy.
It's winter down here, not summer, and our winter breaks only last two to three weeks. Meaning I'll be going back to school.

Yay.
DeBunny

Aw Geo.... Crying or Very sad

Anyway, my posting might be rather...slow for a couple of days.

Why you may ask?

I just got my grubby little hands on the last Harry Potter book.
If that doesn't answer the question for you, then perhaps you should rethink your life.

Good day.
Castaras

Meh, harry potter.

Isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Anyway, sometime in the holidays(not sure when yet), my posting will fall dramatically, as I'll be on day trips everyday for a week.

Enjoy the peace while it lasts. Wink
Shadow of the Sun

I am going to read it, but only for a sense of closure...the series, as a whole, does not have any real reason to compel me towards reading it again, except boredom.
Wukei

The only reason I liked it was Sirius.

Spoiler from book 5
Spoiler:

And I absolutely loathed the way she killed him off by throwing him through a curtain. That was the dumbest thing ever!



So I'm only reading the book for a finality thing, too. But I'm not rushing to buy it, either...
Castaras

Our family will be getting it sometime.

After the crowds have died down.

After the price goes down to something reasonable.

After it comes out in paperback.

But meh, I haven't read the 6th book yet...5th book was annoying, and I don't think I will finish Harry Potter...And you know what? I don't care.
DeBunny

Well, due to my obsessive desire to finish the book before anyone I know, I'm already almost done.
Yep, havn't slept in a good while....

Anyway, my posting is taking another blow starting later today.
One of my relatives died and I probably won't have reliable computer access until Wednesday-ish in the place I'll be staying..
Obsidian Blade

Hehe, I read the book in six hours straight. So I know what happens... *evil laugh*
Shadow of the Sun

I haven't read it, but I read a summary.

Four words at the very end would make it better: Rocks Fall, Everyone Dies.

Those four words also cemented my belief that Vael and I are telepathically linked.
Obsidian Blade

Well, I wasn't thrilled with it. I expected something rather more grand, seeing as that bleedin' woman has been working on the damn thing for three or four years. Apparently the reason the 6th took so long was that she skipped it to work on the 7th, then the 7th took an additional two years to come out... JK Rowling has seriously yanked my chain.
Shadow of the Sun

Introducing a Deus Ex Machina in the story, from what I've heard, annoys me greatly. Grrar.
Vael

Obsidian Blade wrote:

I read the book in five. Wink
Castaras

I'll just say that I read Order of the Phoenix in 6 hours.

Is Deathly Hallows longer or shorter than OotP? Can't remember...
