Oh wow

Postby PottleElf » Tue Sep 15, 2009 2:50 am

This place is still alive and kickin! How are you guys? Does anyone even remember me? It's been, like, years. The apprenticeship sort of stole my life for the past four years, but now I'm done with that and back to having some semblance of a life outside of training.

It's good to see people still remember me! I was worried. So what happened while I was gone? I wanted to come back as soon as I heard about the new Lunar game, but some life-related issues got in the way. That reminds me, I need to update my profile...

Thanks for the cookie! As long as it's not oatmeal then I'm happy.

Like G1 said, welcome back! Where have you been? What's been going on?

Well, updates on all the novels, a Magical School Lunar walkthrough, Lunar: Dragon Song got released (unfortunately), and Lunar: Silver Star Harmony is about to be released (fortunately). That's it in a nutshell. KF

My "training" ended, so I'm now a "resident healer". Man, I thought I'd never be done with that. The third year is the toughest you know.

One thing that majorly, majorly, majorly sucked is that a year and a half ago my apartment got broken into and completely raided. (I don't live in that neighborhood anymore. You can tell why.) Whoever it was didn't touch my textbooks, but he did steal everything of monetary value, and trashed a few things of sentimental value. I was so caught up in exams that week though that I didn't even have time to clean up.

Seriously?!

That really does suck... What'd they take / smash up? Did insurance cover anything? KF

I didn't have much stuff worth insuring, cause insurance doesn't cover sentimental value. So yeah, no insurance there, not that it would've helped. Fortunately they didn't take my notebook (I had that with me) or touch my textbooks (prolly too heavy). They did smash up the bookshelves, some of the furniture, and the cabinets, and they cleared out the kitchen and bathroom (who the hell takes toilet paper? really?).

The worst part, though... they pretty much lifted all the games I had. That includes both Lunar I and Lunar II (Sega CD and Playstation), Vay (Sega CD (I even had the Japanese version)), Sonic CD, and some other stuff I can't even remember now. And then they smashed up my CDX and stole the Playstation. I got all the systems back, but I still don't have any of those SCD games I lost. I put all my games in a CD book, so I still have the case and everything, just not the games.

Did they ever catch those responsible? See, this is why I'm a huge fan of Claymore mines at doors and windows. =P

All the other stuff sucks, but... at least you were able to continue studying. I had my laptop stolen in the middle of writing my economics thesis, and that set me back like a full week of work (would've been months had I not backed up anything), not to mention how much it slowed down all my work thereafter...

The police in my area couldn't be bothered to find, confront, or question, a thief broke into several cars and ripped out car stereos when we had him him clearly on video tape from several cameras, three eye witnesses who chased the perpetrator (Not building security. Oh no, they couldn't leave their comfy desks.) with clear footage of the perpetrator's getaway vehicle with the license plate on film and easy to read. The most they could be bother to do was run the pate, get his address, and they stopped there.

Knowing that, what do you think the chances are that Pottle's guy was caught?

Not all police are the same, so there is a chance he got someone who actually cared about doing what they are paid to do. Not a overly large chance, I have noticed police in many areas, my city included, are lazy arrogant powertrippers who don't give a rats ass. Yet they get a large amount of money in salary. Hmph.

To their credit, the police in my area were pretty nice. But the area I was in had a lot of crime going on that was kinda worse (like shootings and drug/gang violence). I mean at that point all they could do would be dust for prints, and it's not like that would've gotten them anywhere, so I wasn't really upset that they didn't spend much time on it. I mean I eventually managed to rebuy all the stuff that had actual monetary value (after I moved). The only stuff that I'm still upset about are those rare games that I can't get ahold of.

I used to live in an apartment that was surrounded by violence. It wasn't very nice. I'm so glad I moved.

Suprisingly, despite having no window for all summer (when I lived there), no one tried to take anything. That was weird.

Well talking with other people about it, I really think it was drug related. It takes someone out of their right mind to actually steal toilet paper. Maybe you just really didn't have anything worth stealing? ;)
